The peer reviewed open access journal Valuation Studies just published its
second issue. It contains four items:

• An editorial “Valuation Studies and the Spectacle of Valuation” by the
editors Fabian Muniesa and Claes-Fredrik Helgesson brings up the topic that
valuation is something that people may watch as entertainment, such as in
television shows like the Antiques Roadshow, and suggest that there is a
voyeuristic pleasure to be had in witnessing valuations being performed.

• In “What Is a Good Tomato? A Case of Valuing in Practice” Frank Heuts and
Annemarie Mol explore different register of valuing involved in the
valuation of tomatoes as well as the importance of care for making tomatoes

• “Regulating Crisis: A Retrospective Ethnography of the 1982 Latin
American Debt Crisis at the New York Federal Reserve Bank” by Julia
Elyachar looks at the daily life inside the bank during the crisis and not
the least the import of devices and different styles of working and
generating knowledge.

• The final article, “The Conditional Sink: Counterfactual Display in the
Valuation of a Carbon Offsetting”, by Véra Ehrenstein and Fabian Muniesa is
a case study of a carbon offsetting reforestation project in the Democratic
Republic of Congo and in particular the role of counterfactual valuations
in such projects.
