  1. John Lanchester · Good New Idea: Universal Basic Income · LRB 18 July 2019

    Seems like a decent overview of the options, nicely written as ever.

  2. How Civilization Started | The New Yorker

    John Lanchester on re-evaluating the ease of life for hunter gatherers vs settled societies. (via @cityofsound)

  3. John Lanchester · Are we having fun yet?: The Biggest Scandal of All · LRB 4 July 2013

    This and the second part are so worth a read. Banks are mind-boggling.

  4. The Way They Live Now by Michael Lewis | The New York Review of Books

    A good review by Michael Lewis of John Lanchester’s ‘Capital’. I’ve realised there’s, often something extra enjoyable in reviews of very British books by Americans, and vice versa.

  5. Let’s Call it Failure (London Review of Books)

    John Lanchester on good, if depressing, form on the state of the UK economy and “austerity”.

  6. Instagram as an island economy (11 Apr., 2012, at Interconnected)

    The same with Matt Webb’s thoughts on Lanchester’s piece. Belatedly adding it to my link memory.

  7. John Lanchester · Marx at 193 · LRB 5 April 2012

    Just realised I never Pinboarded this at the time, only wrote about it. For completion’s sake.

  8. LRB · John Lanchester · Let Us Pay

    On the future of the newspaper industry. Many good nuggets, including: “New York Times, if it stopped printing a physical edition of the paper, could afford to give every subscriber a free Kindle. Not the bog-standard Kindle, but the one with free global data access. And not just one Kindle, but four Kindles. And not just once, but every year.”

  9. Mr Brown Goes to the Palace « London Review Blog

    John Lanchester’s started posting daily about the general election (if you click his name, that page also has an RSS feed just for him).

  10. LRB · John Lanchester · The Great British Economy Disaster

    Another must-read. “This is a direct transfer of wealth from the taxpayer to the banks, and the only difference between it and an actual, physical licence to print money is that the banks don’t have a piece of paper with the words ‘Official Licence to Print Money’ written across the top.”

  11. LRB · John Lanchester: It’s Finished

    Very long but very worth reading, on the collapse of the banks. One day I hope there’s a book called “John Lanchester Explains Everything”.
