Doing the world a favor. For Michael.


I did indeed post Dilke's work. Then I reposted it. Then, ten years later, Contributions to Political Economy reprinted Dilke's pamphlet, along with an essay about it by Giancarlo de Vivo. And forthcoming in the next issue of CPE is my article on the "Ambivalence of Disposable Time." Thank you, Michael, for asking me to do the world a favor. Rest in Peace.

He had very deep and original insight that was not nearly as widely appreciated as it should have been. But there he was, this heterodox radical at Chico State writing a whole bunch of books ignored by most economists.

Looking back at mentions of Michael on Twitter over the past four or five months since his death, it would appear that he had a broad outreach, even if economists ignored him.
