    Oh, I would love to come and debate this.

      Well, dunno if there will be much time for debate, as it’s the ‘Einführungsvorlesung’… and you know how autocratic I can be at times. Anyway, according to my plan the session on economic anthropology will take place at 10 to 12 AM on 09 January 2012 in lecture hall BU101 in the Oettingenstr. 67 ;-)

    True :-D. I see what I can do, but if I can’t make it to the lecture I propose we discuss this over a pint of beer sometimes this winter. I’ll be done with the MA on tuesday and I’ll certainly drop by Munich not before too long. Will let you know.

      Did you just confirm me being autocratic? Oh, you … prepare yourself for some psychological cruelties after the second beer.

        I did confirm but I must add that I don’t especially reject autocrats in all situations. Lectures ideally are shows and showmasters can’t me democratic.

        As for the alcohol-combined psychological cruelty: I do prefer not to be Voight-Kampff’ed this time.

        Klandestino: Thanks for the hint! Will have a look at both.

    Hi guys,
    if I may put my two cents in…
    Regarding some theories about nation, economy, politics and institutions
    Mancur Olson popped into my head ;)
    “The Logic of Collective Action” and “The Rise and Decline of Nations: Economic Growth, Stagflation, and Social Rigidities” in combination.
    Very interesting, regarding the economic problems we’re facing nowadays.

    Maybe antronaut and me should meet especially for this special lecture to build the “Einführungsveranstaltungsguerrilla” against the Autocrat zeph…Just kiddin’ ;) As far as I remember, there wasn’t much time to debate, so…
    But hey, nice intro to Eco Anthro! Sounds interesting (Polanyi) and it’s not the standard literature! So thumbsup.
