    I foolishly took it upon myself to read not only the assigned chapters, but the whole of Polanyi s magnum opus, and for the past few days have been lost in the labyrinth of 19th century poor laws and monetary policy in the Weimar Republic But this book was immensely profitable, if I may borrow a market based metaphor.In particular, three of Polanyi s simplest, most commonsensical contentions were extremely illuminating to me and greatly bolstered my ability to criticize capitalist orthodoxy.The I foolishly took it upon myself to read not only the assigned chapters, but the whole of Polanyi s magnum...

    I wouldn t think of reading this book without a guide Because Polanyi is an impossible readdifficult than Marx he doesn t have Marx s love of language or Marx s humor ,difficult than Hegel he doesn t have Hegel s pointed sense of knowing that his prose is torturing the poor reader If you have ever tried to read Aristotle, then you have some idea of how Polanyi writes tear duct vaporizing dry But you get something here you won t get in hegel or marx in part because he is I wouldn t think of reading this book without a guide Because Polanyi is an impossible readdifficult than Marx he doesn t have Marx s love of language or Marx s humor ,difficult than Hegel he doesn t have Hegel s pointed sense of knowing that his prose...

    This is a fascinating book, I m astonished I haven t heard of it earlier.Polanyi is not your run of the mill economist he does not use equations he uses context and does not describe events in a vacuum, integrating various disciplines from the social sciences He describes four elements which comprised 19th century civilization, and which have all been swept away by the great bloodbaths of the early 20th century the gold standard, the international balance of power, the classical liberal s This is a fascinating book, I m astonished I haven t heard of it earlier.Polanyi is not your run of the mill economist he does not use equations he uses context and does not describe events in a vacuum, integrating various disciplines from the social sciences He describes four elements which comprised 19th century civilization, and which have all been swept away by the great bloodbaths of the early 20th century the gold standard, the international balance of power, th...

    Polanyi understood economicsrealistically than most economists, and understood that economics does not stand alone, but exists within a larger social institutional context I know that sounds a bit stiff But until you get it, you will suspect that economists don t know something you don t You might even believe in the almighty market as something that exists outside of culture and politics, like the revolutions of the planets Economics is always, like religion or politics, something w Polanyi understood...

    I read this a few years ago.I ve been thinking about it again after reading Streeck s stunning How Will Capitalism End Maybe the key concept here is embeddedness Capitalist society relies on pre capitalist social formations to sustain itself The market on its own is an insufficient foundation for the spiritual and social bonds that constitute a people as opposed to just an aggregate of individuals.Thus it may follow the total triumph of capitalism w I read this a few years ago.I ve been thinking about it again after reading Streeck s stunning How Will Capitalism End Maybe the key concept here is embeddedness Capitalist society relies on pre capitalist social formations to sustain itself The market on its own is an insufficient foundation for the spiritual and social bonds that constitute a people as opposed to just an aggregate of individuals.Thus it may follow the total triumph of capitalism will also be its dissolution Contra most Marxists, the end of capitalism does not require a revolutionary subject to take its place Just the opposite, capitalism will deteriorate after it has eliminated all opposition Chaos reigns This book was actually published the same year as Road to Serfdom.Polyani Hayek Marx to me, that seems like an open question at the moment it almost seems equally radical to call for a new New Deal as a second Bolshevik revolution Hayek contended in The Road to Serfdom that even democratic forms ...

    The principle point made by this book is that the attempted transition from a market embedded in society to a society embedded in a self regulating market resulted in the collapse of 19th century civilisation, in the form of global conflict and economic recession Polanyi asserts that free markets, whereby labour, land and capital become fictitious commodities, result in massive social dislocation Socialism exists to counter this, giving a double movement , as recognisable now as in 1944 In h The principle point made by this book is that the attempted transition from a market embedded in society to a society embedded in a self regulating market resulted in the collapse of 19th century civilisation, in the form of global conflict and economic recession Polanyi asserts that free markets, whereby labour, land and capital become fictitious commodities, result in massive social dislocation Socialism exists to counter this, giving a double movement , as recognisable now as in 1944 In his opinion, the establishment of the free market is not an inherent part of human nature, but rather a human invention, which can, and must, be extensively controlled and regulated A truly free marke...

    I really didn t like this book, mostly because I felt that it was poorly formulated and based on a lot of incomplete examples Every time Polanyi tried to prove something he d give 4 examples of random indigenous populations in which the event occurred All of his examples seemed like exceptions rather than base cases for a rule, and his strange statements like previously to our time the 1940s Industrial Revolution period in general no economy has ever existed that, even in principle, was con I really didn t like this book, mostly because I felt that it was poorly formulated and based on a lot of incomplete examples Every time Polanyi tried to prove something he d give 4 examples of random indigenous populations in which the event occurred All of his examples seemed like exceptions rather than base cases for a rule, and his strange st...

    Polanyi s Great Transformation is a classic of economic history in its older, political economy mode, and a book too often forgotten in an era where economics is seen as a kind of physics, a discipline about ineluctable mathematical laws Polanyi looks at the social consequences of unfettered capitalism in early 19th c England and at the way British society, through relief schemes and workhouses, tried to cope with a world where workers were expected to behave as mere inputs A fine work, wel Polanyi s Great Transformation is a classic of economic history in its older, poli...

    When I was in graduate school, I read Michael Polanyi s Personal Knowledge Towards a Post Critical Philosophy 1958 and was impressed with the way in which he argues that positivism gives a false account of knowing Having had to endure the righteous fundamentalism of positivist professors as an undergraduate, it was wonderfully refreshing to encounter a book that, in a few pages, was able to dismantle thoroughly the positivist view of knowing I realized later that these folks had only read When I was in graduate school, I read Michael Polanyi s Personal Knowledge Towards a Post Critical Philosophy 1958 and was impressed with the way in which he argues that positivism gives a false account of knowing Having had to endure the righteous fundamentalism of positivist professors as an undergraduate, it was wonderfully refreshing to encounter a book that, in a few pages, was able to dismantle thoroughly the positivist view of knowing I realized later that these folks had only read Wittgenstein s Tractatus 1922 and never had gotten to his later book, Philosophical Investigations 1953 Polanyi was a polymath, who made important theoretical contributions to physical chemistry, economics, and philosophy Only recently, however, did I discover that Michael had an equally talented brother, Karl, the political economist.Like his brother, Michael, Karl Polanyi set ou...

    I have to admit that I took fifty one weeks to finish this The effect of that is that my take on it is somewhat disjointed Hence no proper review The four stars 3.5 really are because the author presents some excellent historical analysis and pulls that together to synthesize extremely original ideas of economic development I m surprised we don t seereferences to Polanyi s theories.I did have some concerns with his choice of historical events As is often the case, he has chosen thos I have to admit that I ...
