    The Flying Cars piece predates the Bullshit Jobs piece (and more recent book), but yeah.

    I love Graeber, from Debt: The First 5000 Years to The Utopia of Rules to Bullshit Jobs, not to mention his central role in Occupy Wall Street. Always an interesting and provocative read.

    The Baffler is Thomas Frank's magazine. He's strongly associated with Harper's magazine, which is where i first read Graeber as well as Eric Janszen. Graeber and EJ are the two luminaries who have most influenced my thinking over the past 10+ years.
