Muniesa Fabian, Chabert Dominique, Ducrocq-Grondin Marceline, Scott Susan V., 2011, « Back-office intricacy: the description of financial objects in an investment bank », Industrial and Corporate Change, vol. 20, n°4, p. 1189-1213.

    The complexity of contemporary finance translates into what we call the problem of description: the problem of constructing robust, flexible, portable, and mutually compatible depictions of complex, multisided, and often ambiguous financial objects (products, trades, marketplaces). This problem is characteristically exacerbated in back-office operations within the financial services industry. We provide a case study in the form of a qualitative examination of back- and middle-office operations in an international investment bank. We analyze the manifold manifestations of the problem of description within this bank.
