Legacy[edit]

I just thought it should be mentioned that there is a successor group to Polanyi's, ISCANEE (International Scholars Conference on Ancient Near Eastern Economies), an international group of Assyriologists and archaeologists that has published a series of colloquia analyzing the economic origins of civilization. Four volumes have appeared so far, dealing with privatization, urbanization and land use, the origins of money, accounting, debt, and clean slates in the Ancient Near East (a fifth volume, on the evolution of free labour, is in progress). This new direction in research is now known as the New Economic Archaeology. WjtWeston (talk) 11:58, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Moses Finlay and the Ancient Economy should probably feature as well, in a lot of ways that is his most controversial and lasting legacy 195.194.86.1 (talk) 10:54, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Economic democracy[edit]

In para 2 of our lead we assert: His theories eventually became the foundation for the economic democracy movement. This does not seem to be sourced - and (and this is more my worry) Polyani does not seem to be mentioned at all in the long article on economic democracy that this is linked to. Perhaps I should ask on the talk page of that article for some sourcing or prompt some addition there about Polyani. My agenda is just curiosity.
