15. Polanyi's the Great Transformation

I always heard from my conservative friends phrases like "prove your worth in the free market" as if talent, intellect, character can be tested out like lines and equations drawn out on a piece of paper. In college I remember reading Polanyi's book on debunking the self-regulation that free marketers held dearly, making the "lawless market" even more appalling in the face of logic.
