Financial Crisis and the Stock Market Novel
This chapter discusses the popularization of the stock market novel. Stock market novel emerged in the wake of the great financial crash of Argentina in 1980 to make sense of the fluctuating economy. The chapter examines Julián Martel’s novel, La bolsa, to explain how stock market novels provide renewal of ideology for the Latin American nation in times of financial crisis. La bolsa issued a new genre of fictions arguing that if the destructive elements of capital, which refers to the Jews and women, could be domesticated the economy of Argentina would be restored.
