--news from Robert Neuwirth--
I recently (January 2020) signed a contract with Beacon Press for a new book of reportage on the economics of community.
I'm also working on a collection of short stories about economics called The Book of Derivatives.
Backstory: I've written two previous books: Stealth of Nations (on the global growth of the informal economy) & Shadow Cities (on the global growth of squatter communities).
I live in New York City and do most of my writing on manual typewriters.
I read Shadow Cities and it really impacted me. I leave for Malawi, Africa later this month. Along with a small group, I will be visiting families that are in extreme need and will attempt to help. You book has given me new questions to ask, and I hope to uncover not just immediate needs but long term solutions. Anyway, thank you for your work.
