The great transformation by Karl Polanyi( Book )

279 editions published between 1944 and 2016 in 16 languages and held by 3,316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this classic work of economic history and social theory, Karl Polonyi analyzes the economic and social changes brought about by the "great transformation" of the Industrial Revolution. His analysis explains not only the deficiencies of the self-regulating market, but the potentially dire social consequences of untempered market capitalism. New introductory material reveals the renewed importance of Polanyi's seminal analysis in an era of globalization and free trade."--Jacket

At a recent meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, it was reported that a ghost was haunting the deliberations of the assembled global elite - that of the renowned social scientist and economic historian, Karl Polanyi. In his classic work, The Great Transformation , Polanyi documented the impact of the rise of market society on western civilization and captured better than anyone else the destructive effects of the economic, political and social crisis of the 1930s. Today, in the throes of another Great Recession, Polanyi's work has gained a new significance. To understand the profound challenges faced by our democracies today, we need to revisit history and revisit his work. In this new collection of unpublished texts - lectures, draft essays and reports written between 1919 and 1958 - Polanyi examines the collapse of the liberal economic order and the demise of democracies in the inter-war years. He takes up again the fundamental question that preoccupied him throughout his work - the place of the economy in society - and aims to show how we might return to an economy anchored in society and its cultural, religious and political institutions. For anyone concerned about the danger to democracy and social life posed by the unleashing of capital from regulatory control and the dominance of the neoliberal ideologies of market fundamentalism, this important new volume by one of the great thinkers of the twentieth century is a must-read

La subsistance de l'homme : la place de l'économie dans l'histoire et la société by Karl Polanyi( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Penseur majeur de l?économie de marché et historien du libéralisme, Karl Polanyi reste l?un des rares théoriciens capables de nous aider à comprendre la nature du libéralisme en économie et à reconnaître les limites actuelles de nos démocraties. La Subsistance de l?homme? ouvrage inachevé paru aux États-Unis en 1977, et enfin disponible en français? prolonge et complète son oeuvre magistrale, La Grande Transformation. Polanyi y formulait une critique de l?utopie libérale du XIXe siècle à l?origine du mouvement social d?autoprotection, de l?"État providence", aujourd?hui encore fortement menacé. En prenant le parti d?analyser la subsistance de l?homme sur une très longue période historique, Polanyi offre ici une interprétation originale de la nature et des racines de l?économisme contemporain. L?économie des sociétés primitives, de la vieille Babylone, de l?Égypte ancienne et du royaume du Dahomey au XVIIIe siècle permet de repenser l?universalité et la spécificité des relations sociales et des modes d?"encastrement" de l?économie au sein de la société. Dans la Grèce antique, le commerce extérieur, les usages de la monnaie et l?émergence de marchés à l?échelle locale ou méditerranéenne sont autant d?exemples où l?échange était subordonné à la réciprocité et à la redistribution et où l?économie était étroitement liée au politique. Derrière ce travail de recherche, exigeant et exceptionnel, se déploie l?une des grandes pensées humanistes du XXe siècle, aujourd?hui indispensable pour desserrer l?emprise que la logique libérale exerce sur notre représentation de l?économie et du monde."

Un Siècle de marxisme : avec deux textes inédits de Karl Polanyi by Lucille Beaudry( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in 3 languages and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'importante mobilisation intellectuelle des penseurs radicaux alentour du projet de Marx a produit une floraison d'interprétations et de contributions dans tous les domaines de la connaissance des faits sociétaux. Sans dénier l'importance historique de ces apports à la connaissance, la question reste encore ouverte : l'oeuvre de Marx et de ses continuateurs constitue-t-elle une rupture épistémologique radicale avec la pensée dominante?
