King Capital

I’ve been wanting to shout this from the rooftops, and now I can. I’ve just signed a contract for my next book, which is called King Capital, with Random House, where I’ll be working with Molly Turpin, who edited one of my favorite books of the last decade. After floundering around for a few years, with one false start after another, I’m thrilled to be writing this book and working with Molly. I feel more than lucky that Sarah Chalfant (The Wylie Agency), who did so much for this shidduch, is my agent.

Now to write the book. In the meantime here’s a brief article on the sale, which was reported in yesterday’s Publishers Marketplace.

    Excellent topic. You’ll want to take a look at this book, especially chapters 5 and 6:

    When I read the phrase “capitalism subsumes ancient power politics” I think of Karl Polanyi? I’m getting through a biography of his life right now by Gareth Dale. I think that it better helped me to understand his book “The Great Transformation”. He wrote the book in Vermont, but the idea for it first came to him while serving in Galicia in World War One. Is this what he means by the economy being embedded in social relations, or disembedded from them. He was friendly with many Christian socialists, while exiled in England, and knew the Labour leader R. H. Tawney, and was influenced by the histories of Arnold J. Toynbee. He was critical of Keynes particularly at Bretton Woods, and was against what would become NATO. Sounds like a great subject for a book.

    Wonderful title. Soon Burger King and the descendants of the “Kingfisher” will be sending you their legal notices.
    Seriously, good luck. Because many needed major changes seem stalled, it’s a good time to write the longer works with historical and theoretical perspectives.

    How exciting! I do hope Kalecki gets at least a mention. The Political aspects of Full Employment is quite possibly the best thing I have ever read.
