Here is my review of Yochai Benkler’s The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom (Yale University Press, 2006). It will appear in the Fall 2008 issue of The Independent Review. Benkler has written a fine book, though I have some reservations, as explained in the review.

Here is Benkler’s website and here is a wiki for his book.

    Thanks. If that’s the worst of the errors then I’m in pretty good shape. :-)
