Every so often a book comes along that works its way into a majority of the interesting conversations you have with both friends and colleagues. Such is the case with Rana Foroohar’s Makers and Takers: The Rise of Finance and The Fall of American Business. Foroohar was kind enough to send me an early draft to read several months ago, and I found myself quoting from it in nearly everything I subsequently wrote, in every talk I gave, and even in various Slack channels at work. Makers and Takers is that rare work of journalism that both appears at a fortuitous moment in history, and captures the essence of that moment’s core narrative.

Prehistoric peoples could kill mammoths: how about corporations?

Most legal systems today recognize the registered business firm as a distinct legal person, separate from its stockholders, board of directors or employees. In fact, laws would often refer to "natural or legal persons". It should therefore be safe to conclude that such registered business firms or corporations are persons (ie, organisms), but not "natural…

Difference between revisions of "Toward a Neo-Polanyian Conception of Capitalist Crisis" - P2P Foundation

Difference between revisions of "Toward a Neo-Polanyian Conception of Capitalist Crisis" - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"The double movement is the periodic balancing in capitalist societies between the push for marketization, which aims to disembbed the market from society, and the counter-movement pushing for social protection, which seeks to re-embed the market into society.
