 Abstract: The argument of this paper is that market-theories of religion that are based on the notion of ‘rational choice’ do not contribute to our understanding of the transcendental value of money and markets in our social life. Such theories depend on a too narrow interpretation of ‘rationality’, but also neglect the importance of enchantment in financial transactions, consumption patterns, and religious life. The paper addresses studies of religion in China and South Asia to illustrate its theoretical points.
