Could marxmail readers please comment (in basic English assuming no 
understanding of
marxist economic theory AT ALL) on the significance of K Polanyi's The Great
Transformation? I have just read it but I am not sure what to make of it. 
Its analysis
of the transition to capitalism and critique of the market seem valuable. 
Its analysis
of fascism and the brief comments about USSR seem less useful.
