Komnenian economy has yet to receive a more recent treatment, but you'll want to look at Harvey's Economic Expansion in Byzantium, 900-1200 and Hendy's Studies in the Byzantine Monetary Economy. For pronoia, you're in luck - Mark Bartusis recently published a very large book on the topic.
I wasn’t aware of Bartusis’s new book. I was going to recommend his Late Byzantine Army, since it deals with pronoia and financing the Army, but this seems considerably more useful to O.P.
I found it to be somewhat arcane, I guess I lack the background to really understand the relationships. I’m just an interested amateur, after all.
