This book symposium discusses Daniel Fridman’s Freedom from Work: Embracing Financial Self-Help in the United States and Argentina, which appeared in 2016. Our interest emerges from a workshop on economic sociology that took place in Santiago, Chile, where we, the three present reviewers, realised that we had all been reading Fridman’s book. The common influence of José Ossandón and the blog ‘estudios de la economía’, which links our interest on Fridman’s book, should also be mentioned. In what follows, our three perspectives on the book and Daniel Fridman’s response to our comments are presented.
