  • The Making of the Indebted Man
    The Making of the Indebted Man (English, Paperback) Maurizio Lazzarato

They are all "debtors," guilty and responsible in the eyes of capital, which has become...

  • Why Minsky Matters
    Why Minsky Matters (English, Hardback) L. Randall Wray

    Perhaps no economist was more vindicated by the global financial crisis than Hyman P. Minsky (1919?96).

Yet even today he remains largely outside mainstream economics; few people have a good grasp of his writings,...
