Seminar on David Graeber’s Debt – admin notice

by Chris Bertram on February 28, 2012

We’ve now received and published all the contributions in our online seminar on David Graeber’s _Debt: The First 5000 Years_ . For those wanting a handy index the posts are:

Chris Bertram, “Introduction”:
John Quiggin, “The unmourned death of the double coincidence”:
Henry Farrell: “The world economy is not a tribute system”:
Barry Finger “Debt jubilee or global deleveraging”:
John Quiggin (slight return): “The end of debt”:
Neville Morley: “The return of grand narrative in the human sciences”:
Malcolm Harris: “The dangers of pricing the infinite”:
Daniel Davies “Too big to fail: the first 5000 years”:
Lou Brown: “Good to think with”:
Richard Ashcroft: “Money out of place: ‘debt’ and incentives”:
Rob Horning: “Debt on the 12th planet”:

Stay tuned, as we’re hoping that David Graeber will be able to write a response to some of this soon, but that won’t happen for at least a week or so.
