Check out David Graeber. He's an anthropologist who has done research on the history of debt.
His work is very interesting.

David Graeber

I did, he has worked with hudson and has articles on counterpunch. I'll have to read some more stuff that he's done.

I bought this book from hudson, the cover is Jesus flipping the tables and whipping the money changers in the temple. Hudson believes that Jesus came to restore the Jubilee and restore those in debt from interest. This angered not only the Romans but also the pharisees.

I hope you bought the hardcover for $3 more.
