In this article, Dirk Verdicchio addresses the display of sexuality in cinematic movies on finance. He argues that the display of sexuality can be seen as a representation of the financial economy and asks how finance is perceived when it is envisioned by means of sexuality. Referring to George Bataille’s concepts of economy, heterogeneity, and erotics he argues that the display of sexuality in these films endangers conventional, bourgeois ideals and values – in Bataille’s terms: the financial economy threatens social homogeneity because of an inherent heterogeneity of the stock exchange. According to the analyzed movies, the financial economy is not only the site where the rationality of the economy appears in its purest form, but also the site where this principle collapses and turns into its opposite.
