Debt: Almost a book review


I am learning a lot from the rich and erudite book written by the late David Graeber, entitled Debt: The First 5,000 Years. You might even say I owe quite a bit to this book!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Oh, you'd like to know what I'm learning from this dense, thorough, anthropologically oriented book on the history and meaning of debt?

Oooooh. Good question! And well put. I'd super like to know the answer too!

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
