A Macat Analysis of David Graeber's Debt: The First 5,000 Years
- By: Sulaiman Hakemy
- Narrated by: Macat.com
- Length: 1 hr and 33 mins
David Graeber's 2011 book, Debt: The First 5,000 Years, seeks to overturn hundreds of years of economic theory, specifically the idea that people have a natural inclination to trade with each other and that the concept of money developed spontaneously to overcome the inefficiencies of a bartering system. The US-born social activist uses his training as an anthropologist to trace the histories of money and of debt and reaches the conclusion that money was in fact created by the state as a means of exploiting the poor.
