The New York Times calls them "the best folk band to have come out of Scotland in the last twenty years."

Karl Polyani on WUSB - Monday, Jan 25, 6:00 AM

Can free-markets properly organize society? This writer says no. This writer also states that self-regulating markets are a Utopian fantasy. This man, by the way, is Karl Polanyi (and, as I discover during the show, the 'y' is silent). Polanyi's critique of free-market fundamentalism can provide some powerful insights into why free-markets are essentially flawed, and why our concept of 'freedom' needs to be re-evaluated. 


Tune in this Monday morning from 6-7am to hear my discussion with Professor Fred Block, author of "The Power of Market Fundamentalism - Karl Polanyi's Critique."
