I can’t make it because I’m heading upstate for an annual vacation, but tonight’s event at Melville House in Brooklyn looks compelling, and certainly timely: It’s a discussion about “the role of debt in the world economy” between Doug Henwood and David Graeber. Graeber’s new book is Debt: The First 5,000 Years.
(I will be posting around here while on vacation. I know it’s been quiet. I’m working on that, and hoping it changes more noticeably after Labor Day.)
