Clark on Polanyi (the Bad One)

Greg Clark’s NY Sun takedown of Karl Polanyi’s The Great Transformation is ripping good fun. This response, by a sociologist, is entertaining for other reasons. For example, I like how it starts out strong by pointing out that Sun is a neocon rag. The commenters at Mark Thoma’s, from whence comes the link, are aghast at Clark’s lack of reverence for the wrong Polanyi. Anyway, I want more new reviews of sixty year-old books!
