Kristian Garthus-Niegel replied to ryan anderson's discussion Upcoming OAC online seminar: Finance, Value, and Inequality (April 15-22, 2016)
"I'm not sure I'm with those of you folks who'd like to keep boundaries, aesthetics, poetics, words etc. center of gravity. This stuff is absolutely interesting and important, but I think the crucial outcome is how they interact with…"

"By no means did I intend to en-noble the Inkas viz. Financiers Daniel; I'm fully with you on pocketing the moral revolver here. Archaeological data does not lend itself well to words vs. deeds-tests, which is one of the main comparative…"

Kristian Garthus-Niegel replied to ryan anderson's discussion Upcoming OAC online seminar: Finance, Value, and Inequality (April 15-22, 2016)
"A further short note: As the paper at hand attributes key importance to numerical abstractions in distributive economic technologies, when discussing the longue duree of finance, I think one can't get around the GDP-concept. Recently,…"

"Thanks Ryan/Daniel for setting up/providing a textual starting point for this paramount topic of our day, and thanks to the rest of you for feeding the discussion. I'm learning a lot from all of this. I also think that one of the most exciting…"

Kristian Garthus-Niegel replied to ryan anderson's discussion Upcoming OAC online seminar: Finance, Value, and Inequality (April 15-22, 2016)
"Dear Daniel, To my knowledge, apart from Douglas Holmes' "Economy of Words", there hasn't really been done any ethnographic work within the central quarters of the World Bank, IMF, ECB, or the Eurogroup (but Keith could surely…"

"Great paper Daniel; most accessible account of various main finance players I ever read. One question that came up with me was how state reform programs and their antecedent governmental agents would compare here (aka IWF-South, or EU…"

Kristian Garthus-Niegel replied to John McCreery's discussion Are we ready for The Lively Science?
"As of being a social science, why not concentrate primarily on modelling the social variables in human systems? Take for instance traffic; even though full of everyday slips, it's a good example of a relatively stable human system which emerges…"

Kristian Garthus-Niegel replied to Huon Wardle's discussion Whatever Happened to 'Social Science'?
"Thanks also Huon for valuable thought supplements. Off the hand, I'd say, based on my participant observation-intuition, that the most plausible of your explanatory variables are Q2, Q3/second part. Future horizons seem very narrow;…"

Kristian Garthus-Niegel replied to Huon Wardle's discussion Whatever Happened to 'Social Science'?
"Thanks for the elaborations John. First, I should underline, in line with previous arguments, that these are thought as interacting elements of an explanatory model (i.e. not mutually exclusive). The list is far from exhaustive; in the meanwhile, a…"

Kristian Garthus-Niegel replied to Huon Wardle's discussion Whatever Happened to 'Social Science'?
"Lee, in our manifold discussions over the latest half year, I have already proposed sketches of various explanatory models to particular phenomena at hand. See for instance here, here and here; then we also had this good one from…"

Kristian Garthus-Niegel replied to Huon Wardle's discussion Whatever Happened to 'Social Science'?
"John, Huon, I'll get back with some more experiences and reflections from the German reception front. Currently what has particularly caught my attention is how the chaos following the refugee tide has big man-society-like features emerge in…"

Kristian Garthus-Niegel replied to Huon Wardle's discussion Whatever Happened to 'Social Science'?
"Hm Huon, I like the plain and sober style of your ordering efforts; in particular because of how they squeeze our minds to aspire for inferring simple, non-esoteric mechanistic principles from vastly complex empirical processes. That, I think,…"

"...and whilst we revel in theory-sama, folks at LSE don't even mention us as a potential sosci-research partner in the refugee crisis ..."

"Boy,those theory-loops...ethnographic case materials/methodological venues please?"

Kristian Garthus-Niegel replied to Huon Wardle's discussion Whatever Happened to 'Social Science'?
"Yo, Agar is a great guy. Even though some started more than half a century ago, anthropologists have still yet but began to translate complexity theory into a firm ethnographic methodological program (Agar's one of the few wave-crusters). On…"

"- Private Pegida FB-post; in a week ca. 1000 likes (Pegida - German rightwing anti-immigration popular movement which emerged 1 year ago, main base: Dresden) Lee, reading your essay I realize you are quite a bit more radical than I was first aware.…"
