A book I will definitely have to come back to! Reading about the Matsutake market in this book felt like a privileged glimpse into an unfamiliar world, one which exists outside the idea of scarcity. For example, I will be thinking about the image of a "pipe" of wealth waiting to be broken open for a long time.The idea of an almost playful economy based on work that defies our typical classifications for labor is fascinating.
