BOOK REVIEW: “DEBT: THE FIRST 5,000 YEARS” BY DAVID GRAEBER
Debt: The First 5,000 Years by David Graeber
I had heard that this was a good book, but I was really surprised. It is a great book, much better than the recommendations.
Book Review: Debt: The First 5000 Years by David Graeber
I can’t recommend Debt: The First 5,000 Years highly enough. I think it’ll give you insights into just how money works if you don’t already know that at a deep level. Being a geek, being college-educated I had no clue if you have an engineering degree or even a PhD in engineering, this isn’t necessarily something that you learn about.
Debt: The First 5,000 Years
David’s magnum opus is a book that eludes simple summaries. Debt is an encyclopaedic journey through global history encompassing the stories of grand civilizations as well as small societies whose social logics reveal more about the human condition than anyone might imagine. It is primarily a story about money and the way material issues have always been underlain by moral considerations.
Meticulously researched and beautifully written, Debt was pronounced to be the anarchist bible and with a single stroke David placed the topic of debt at the center of academic debates, inspiring a whole set of scholars to wrest the understanding of economy away from professional economists. For the present generation, the call for clean slates and widespread debt cancellation had never rung so loudly.
