    A Deep Well of Insight

    Polanyi's book is a fascinating exploration of the market assumptions which still underlie much economic thought in our day. That Austrian School and Neo-Liberal/Classical economists have such vitriolic contempt for this work evidences its radical reinterpretation of free-market origins. A crucial piece for anyone who wishes to better understand the social and ideological genesis of our age.

    One of the best non-fiction books ever written

    Whether you're into economics, sociology, history or politics, this is a classic you will not want to miss. It's probably the single most intriguing book I have read.

    Satanic Mill

    This epic work has transformed the way we look at classical economic and political history. The father of the "Markets as a Creation" model and the "Ficticious Commoidification" theories, create new understandings of comparative political-economic theory. "The Great Transformation" is a timeless peice, allowing us to see capitalism, human motivation, and society in new light.
