The vampire state : and other myths and fallacies about the U.S economy by Fred L Block( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much right-wing political effort has gone into creating an image of the US government as a "vampire", sucking the lifeblood from the economy. Americans have been told that if they want a healthy economy, they have to tighten their belts, save more, and eliminate the federal budget deficit by drastically downsizing the government. This work argues that these claims derive their persuasiveness not from good economics but from popular allegories and metaphors that have shaped public understanding for generations

The great transformation by Karl Polanyi( Book )

15 editions published between 1957 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Desde la paz relativa instaurada en el siglo XIX -la cual descansaba en el equilibrio de sus instituciones- hasta nuestros días signados por guerras de baja y alta intensidad, es posible observar cómo se han privilegiado ciertas políticas que, al entronizar la economía mercantil y convertir en aleatorias las transformaciones sociales, exhiben a un hombre que pierde progresivamente su libertad y sus rasgos humanos. Karl Polanyi cuestiona en estas páginas clásicas esa subordinación del perfil social al progreso económico y propone invertir el planteamiento: encontrar primero la esencia de la convivencia histórica a través de una plena reorganización internacional de las instituciones sociales, antes de que el pragmatismo económico anule los valores esenciales de la vida humana que tan trabajosamente sobreviven en este siglo. Esta nueva edición incluye un prólogo de Joseph Stiglitz y una introducción de Fred Block, que analizan claramente el pensamiento de Polanyi y subrayan la vigencia de esta obra, a casi 60 años de su publicación, en estos tiempos de neoliberalismo y globalización
