Short Stories of Dependency 2.0

By the occasion of the World Economics Association online conference, I prepared a new version of the Short Stories of Dependency. As you may see, I have not resolved the ethical issues I am facing in my research and in the meantime new issues have been raised.

You may find the new version of the paper at this link

  1. Hello Irene, I stumbled across this site through an old Google Alert.

    You may be interested in our new book "People Money - the Promise of Regional Currencies" which is a field guide to local currencies around the world: http://www.triarchypress.com/pages/Regional-Currencies-People-Money.htm

    I could not get much information about Greece whilst writing it, so there is little included. You can contact me via:

    All the best with your research

  2. Hello John!
    Thank you so much for this. I did not know about the book and i am afraid that i missed the website among all this info in the CC-Research google group (i remembered it once i opened the link you gave me). Now, at least i put the link on the blog, so that i do not miss it again.
    I am waiting for my viva appointment to be arranged and then i will write to you. In case you need info and websites on greek schemes, look for the paper concerning the crisis. The dissertation will have more updated info.

    Best regards from me too!
