Externalities, Freedoms and Consequences

Externalities, Freedoms and Consequences by Jon Clucas

Externalities, Freedoms and Consequences by Jon Clucas

Externalities, or effects of transactions on indirectly related parties, are not adequately included in monetary prices and tend to be obscured or completely hidden from consumers. This inadequacy of consumer capital markets is detrimental to democratic values and can be improved with information and communication technologies and legal reform. This book presents a brief overview of the history and status of externalities and freedoms in consumer capitalist markets and attempts to provide a starting point for reforms.

If All These Young Men

If All These Young Men by Florence Roma Muir Wilson

If All These Young Men by Florence Roma Muir Wilson

Another remarkable World War I novel by Romer Wilson, “If All These Young Men” is a character study of a group of young 20-something friends in England dealing with the looming, grey presence of the War in their lives. The story begins on Good Friday 1918, and centers on Josephine Miller, a restless, strong-minded young woman who cannot tolerate trivialities or frivolities so long as the War goes on, and who agonizes over how to go on living in its shadow. The characters of Josephine and her friends are patterned on those of Wilson and her own coterie at the time, both male and female, revealing the profound angst of young intellectuals of the time who lived under the dread not only of invasion and national destruction, but also of the alien world that would be left for them when the monstrous conflict was over.

Castles in the Air

Castles in the Air by Baroness Emmuska Orczy

Castles in the Air by Baroness Emmuska Orczy

Castles in the Air, a short novel or perhaps more like a collection of short stories with memories of a French rogue in the early 19th century Paris, and about it I quote from the foreword: In very truth my good friend Ratichon is an unblushing liar, thief, a forger–anything you will; his vanity is past belief, his scruples are non-existent. How he escaped a convict settlement it is difficult to imagine, and hard to realize that he died–presumably some years after the event recorded in the last chapter of his autobiography–a respected member of the community, honored by that same society which should have raised a punitive hand against him.

Poems on Slavery

Poems on Slavery by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Poems on Slavery by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

This is a short volume of abolitionist poetry by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, first published in 1842. As Wikipedia notes, Longfellow himself was not entirely satisfied with his work: “However, as Longfellow himself wrote, the poems were ‘so mild that even a Slaveholder might read them without losing his appetite for breakfast’. A critic for The Dial agreed, calling it ‘the thinnest of all Mr. Longfellow’s thin books; spirited and polished like its forerunners; but the topic would warrant a deeper tone’. The New England Anti-Slavery Association, however, was satisfied enough with the collection to reprint it for further distribution.” Despite these shortcomings, however, this volume is of historical importance and will interest many listeners.

Musings of a Chinese Mystic

Musings of a Chinese Mystic by Chaung Tzu

Musings of a Chinese Mystic by Chaung Tzu

If Lao Tzu then had revolted against the growing artificiality of life in his day, a return to nature must have seemed doubly imperative to his disciple Chuang Tzu, who flourished more than a couple of centuries later, when the bugbear of civilization had steadily advanced. With chagrin he saw that Lao Tzu’s teaching had never obtained any firm hold on the masses, still less on the rulers of China, whereas the star of Confucius was unmistakably in the ascendant. Within his own recollection the propagation of Confucian ethics had received a powerful impetus from Mencius, the second of China’s orthodox sages. Now Chuang Tzu was imbued to the core with the principles of pure Taoism, as handed down by Lao Tzu. He might more fitly be dubbed “the Tao-saturated man” than Spinoza “the God-intoxicated.” Tao in its various phases pervaded his inmost being and was reflected in all his thought. He was therefore eminently qualified to revive his Master’s ringing protest against the materialistic tendencies of the time.
