    I've just finished The Hard Eight, and I have the Thorn King but i don't want to read drak fantasy just now. Hope the library can deliver some of the fluffy funny woman's mysteries before I go book-starved.

    Just started Bob Altemeyer's The Authoritarians (free PDF, available here) and so far it's very interesting. It's about the psychology behind authoritarianism and authoritarian followers.

    No, Graeber doesn't seem to fit into a Keynesian or a Smithian or a Friedmanian paradigm--his ideas are pretty fresh to my eyes. The book is also mostly a historical view of the actual origins of debt and credit. I really enjoyed it, though it was definitely a long, slow read.
