Robert Thornton's comments about post-modern economic anthropology have an
interesting resemblance to pieces of the "substantivist" side of the
substantivist / fomalist debate I studied in economic anthropology as an
undergraduate. I say this not by way of criticism; I just find it
interesting how good ideas have a way of "coming back."
