For example, the Louis Hyman mentioned in the article is a very good leftie who I have exchanged email with over my discussion of his terrific history of consumer credit: http://louisproyect.wordpress.com/2012/04/29/debt/.)

I had the same reaction. Some of these professors, and some of the books cited, sound as though they would be very critical of capitalism. Is anyone here familiar with any of the books named in the article?
