Debt: The First 5,000 Years

David Graeber

David Graeber’s assault on debt. In an attempt to render the book a serious bit of anthropological scholarship, the middle is packed with research & academic stuff. But the introduction & conclusion can be read in conjunction to get the gist.

Again, just like his Bullshit Jobs - so good. Witty, informed, thoughtful; Graeber is an existentially creative thinker & writer.
