#mypoliticaleconomy seeks to create a digital repository of teaching materials and discussions for teachers of political economy in higher education and beyond.

The Secret City is a useful resource to teach the spaces and places that manifest the material power of finance. It offers an important historical element of understanding merchant finance as separate from nation-states, here the Corporation of the City of London is explored as private entity that exists outside and right at the heart of London – a leading global financial centre. Film is an important resource for teaching political economy because it makes visible the materiality of finance as money and power.
