About ten days ago, I posted a complaint (“Credit default”), which could perhaps be characterized as “petulant,” about the uncanny resemblance between a Harvard Business Review piece (“What Good Are Shareholders?”) by Justin Fox and Jay Lorsch and my book Wall Street.
Justin Fox has just posted an extremely generous endorsement of my work: The Wall Street Book Everyone Should Read. I am very grateful and flattered and will even forgive his characterization of me as “crotchety.” Thank you, Justin.
Verso let the book go out of print but you can download it here. I apologize for the poor letterspacing—bad things happened to the PostScript code in the transition between PageMaker for Mac OS 9 and InDesign for OS X that I’ve been unable to compensate for.
This just in: the estimable Henry Farrell just posted a plea to me to write a second edition, calling it possibly “the best leftwing book on actually-existing-capitalism that’s been written in the last couple of decades.” Wow. My head swells. Henry suggests a Kickstarter to get it going. Hmm. How much demand is there for this?
