Eight people, including some city council members, were arrested after squatter protests in Rajkot, a city of 1.2 million people, ExpressIndia reports. The city authorites have embarked on a rapid demolition drive against 3,000 squatters.
--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.
