Blogging the Zombies: Expansionary Austerity – Further Reading

December 28th, 2011

Thanks to everyone who has made comments on the drafts of the new chapter of Zombie Economics, on Expansionary Austerity, for the forthcoming paperback edition.  I’m now editing in response, and adding a section on Further Reading. I’d welcome any suggestions for this chapter, as well as any useful references that weren’t in the hardback edition.

    Sorry. Didn’t mean to disturb you. Just spraying those annoying crickets.

    Hey, could you please upload the new chapter as pdf? By the way, your book is great 🙂

    The book is a fantastic history of economic thought.

    Two books you might like to cite in the paperback edition are:

    Karen Ho. Liquidated, an ethnography of Wall Street.

    Julia Ott. When Wall Street Met Main Street: The Quest for an Investors’ Democracy.

    Ho is an anthropologist who traces the origins of the idea of ‘shareholder value’ and Ott is a historian who takes on the notion that the stock market finances innovation.

    The phraseology you use is employed by Krugman here


    Nothing new in his post however.

    Little more than a repost of what Prof Quiggin wrote here: http://johnquiggin.com/2011/11/01/occupied-interview/

    “Debt: the first 5000 years” by David Graeber is a must read, I think.
