Governing by Debt
Thu, 2015-02-12 22:04

In Governing by Debt, Lazzarato confronts a wide range of thinkers—from Félix Guattari and Michel Foucault to David Graeber and Carl Schmitt—and draws on examples from the United States and Europe to argue that it is time that we unite in a collective refusal of this most dire status quo.

The Specter of Capital
Fri, 2015-02-13 07:00

"To understand what capitalism means today, we must ask about economics and culture, for capital is central to each. It takes on spectral form: shadowy, fleeting, but omnipresent. This is finance capitalism. It has existed before but is of newly dramatic power now. Vogl's book is full of insights into what is going on and what it all means." Craig Calhoun -- LSE

Institutions, Innovation, and Industrialization: Essays in Economic History and Development
Fri, 2015-02-13 07:04

"The origins of modern economic growth have been a central preoccupation of economic historians since, well, there has been modern economic growth. As this volume edited by Greif, Kiesling, and Nye makes clear, that preoccupation is very much alive, and scholarship on the subject is alive and well. For readers interested in understanding the state of the art, there is no better place to start."--Barry Eichengreen, University of California, Berkeley
