Neal Rockwell sat down with David Graeber while he was in Montreal last week. They talked about a number of topics from his book Debt: The First 5000 Years. These ranged from precapitalist economies, to markets which during certain periods have prevented rather than fostered capitalism and to how our contemporary concept of freedom originated from Roman property law and slave ownership.
David Graeber launched his book Debt: The First 5,000 Years in Montreal at QPIRG Concordia, Monday, November 21st.
