Reading Karl Polanyi for the Twenty-First Century by Ayse Bugra
Book DescriptionUsing Karl Polanyi's analysis of the separation of politics and the economy, the book argues that the market economy is not a spontaneous process, but a 'political project' realized through institutional change where labour, land, money, and currently knowledge are commodities. The contributions explore the impact of this commodification process.
