Some updates

 A solid book on late state development highlights the impressive growth record of the SYrian state in the 70s.  David Waldner, State Building and Late Development. He highlights that Syrian GDP grows at 5.7% between 1960-1970 and 9% between 1970-1979.  It’s amazing that this is in line for its times though. A great performance especially coming in the 70s.
 
On FInancialization: Beverly Silver mentions that there are two waves of financialization, under reagan to suck up capital, and in 1994 under larry summers in repsonse to international competition. THe first created international globalization, the second was a response to the impact of the first wave.
