Although Karl Polanyi is best known for his theorization of market regulation and the double movement, democratizing the economic was one of his core concerns. He believed societies need to bring labor, land, and money under collective oversight to displace the logic of market fundamentalism with the logic of human needs. In this article, the author draws on Polanyi’s vocabulary to shed light on the denial of money politics and the possibility of democratization. The author illustrates these dynamics through an analysis of long-term dynamics of (de)politicization in British colonial America and the United States through the 1930s. The author developed this approach hoping that it can contribute to nudging public debates beyond regulation and monetary policy techniques and toward popular involvement and knowledge.

Furthermore, the agency of international institutions was crucial as concerns the implementation of monetary and financial stability policies in the 1920s: such cases consist, for example, the intervention of the LON in Austria and the accomplishment of the refugee rural reestablishment in Greece by the same institution. This action taken by the interwar global actors interacts with the local [i.e., national] economic policies and with the establishment of local institutions. On the other hand, the monetary cooperation in the 30s -under the Great Depression
