The Wealth of Networks

by Henry Farrell on April 15, 2006

Yale University Press has just released Yochai Benkler’s _The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom_. You can buy it at “Powells”:, and Amazon, but it’s also available from Benkler under “Creative Commons”: with an associated wiki. There’ll be more about this book on CT soon – for the moment, suffice to say that I think that this is a really important book, not only for people interested in the politics of technology, but for people interested in left or liberal politics more generally. It fizzes with ideas.

Just gave this a cursory couple-hour read and yes–it’s fascinating & well-balanced. Hope we get to have a CT seminar on this soon (and that when we do, we have a centralized post/joint comments)!

Jack Balkin had us read most of this book for a class he was teaching last semester. Without looking back through my notes in order to make a substantive comment, I think I can safely say it was excellent.
