Not really, though I usually use Marxist in the political sense and Marxian in the philosophical sense.
The Rational Optimist - How Prosperity Evolves. In short, Ridley puts forward, very convincingly, that free trade and the benefits of commerce, technology, and innovation actually fueled philosophy and moral theory, etc. He analyzes a great deal of ancient economic history and shows how commerce was not just an element of cultural evolution but the very foundation of it. Unfortunately Ridley does not deal with money in any great depth, other than to say that it was a critical invention in the history of commerce (as we all know) because it greased the wheels of trade. I'll be very interested in reading this new book.

I appreciate your support. I wish I could give them away but unfortunately the publisher wouldn’t like that
Hi Nick, I'm interested in buying one of your copies at a discounted rate. Should I message you directly?
