介紹 DESCRIPTION //

2016年11月8號這天,在沒有任何預警的情況下,印度政府廢止了所有面值500和1,000盧布的紙幣流通。這一舉措使得此類貨幣瞬間失效,不得再用於兌換任何物品或服務。馬上,嚴重依賴現金交易的印度經濟陷入了一個非常不穩定的狀態之中,僅僅數月就有一百多人因此而喪生。

作為一個社會,對於人的衝突、自然災害、哪怕隨機暴力事件引發的後果我們都能很快紀念,但是對於財金崩潰以及因此導致的傷亡我們卻往往忽略或無視。在此情況下,《新經濟的紀念》打算將出版物作為一種紀念的方式:不過它既不是什麼偉大的宣言,也不是什麼聳立的紀念碑,而是基於分銷、接駁、交換體系的一份檔案。

本書是設於班加羅爾的非營利性出版社Reliable Copy(可靠副本)的第一份出版物;《新經濟的紀念》的鏡像下載鏈接會在購買後完成發送。

 

On the 8th of November 2016, the Government of India demonetised all circulating 500 and 1,000 rupee banknotes without warning. This move suddenly invalidated these notes, deeming them unusable in exchange for any goods or service. Instantly, India’s heavily cash dependent economy found itself in an unstable position. In the months following this announcement, over a 100 people died as a consequence.

As a society we quickly memorialise the consequences of human conflict, natural disasters, and even of random acts of violence, but financial collapses and its human toll are often ignored or rendered invisible. Within this context, A Memorial for the New Economy proposes a publication as a memorial—one that is neither a grand proclamation, nor a fixed monument, but instead a document dependent on systems of distribution, access and exchange.

This is the first publication of Bangalore-based non-profit publishing house Reliable Copy; this mirror to download A Memorial for the New Economy has been made available with permission—the link to be sent after completing check-out.
