Ironic that the the production of this article was itself a bullshit job - summarising work that does not need summary, presumably to fill a contractual requirement to submit x articles per year.

David Graeber is great. Go read the real thing, either in the Guardian [0] or one of the books. His history of debt is mind-bending.

I highly recommend Debt: the first 5000 years https://www.amazon.com/Debt-Updated-Expanded-First-Years/dp/...

and Heilbroner's Worldly Philosophers https://www.amazon.com/Worldly-Philosophers-Economic-Thinker...
