Review of My Book
May, 2013
Economics

Farley Grubb’s book GERMAN IMMIGRATION AND SERVITUDE IN AMERICA, 1709-1920 (New York: Routledge, 2011), ISBN: 978-0-415-61061-2, was reviewed by Simone Wegge on EH.Net, 1 May 2013, see attached link. Other scholars have already noted the following passage from the review:  
“Farley Grubb is a researcher’s researcher, or a scholar’s scholar: he cares more about uncovering the empirical truth than espousing a particular economic model or popular historical theme. Grubb is brutally honest about his work, how he came to the data, what they can do and cannot do, and what is old and what is new in this book. In another life he would make a great Atticus Finch or Detective Columbo. This is part of the reason this book was  
such a pleasure to read. I felt like I was getting the truth as best as he   
sees it, pretty or not."

Money, Democracy and the Constitution: revolutionary experience in the United States
January, 2013
Economics

This seminar explores the relationship between money and the legal formation of the modern liberal capitalist state, with a particular emphasis on the pre-Revolutionary and early United States. In contrast to conventional economic narratives that cast money as lubrication for existing forms of exchange, this event highlights the legal and political origins of our modern monetary system, and traces the influence of those forces on the shape of the modern economy.
