Born of the unlikely union between a strict Baptist matriarch and her husband, a bigamist, alleged rapist, and snake-oil salesman, Rockefeller’s early childhood was spent learning how to shoulder an adult’s responsibility for his family and turn a deaf ear to the gossip that followed wherever his father went.This book contains highlights from the extraordinarily long life of a man many believed to be little better than a criminal, preying on small business owners to establish the supremacy of the Standard Oil Trust.

A Brief Introduction to the Economics of Greed and Exploitation

by Ashok Malhotra

Driven by insatiable greed, modern economic practices have developed in a manner so that while some executives and bankers walk away with millions of compensation, others are driven out of their homes to the street. At the same time, governments who had freely incurred massive debts in the past with an eye on the next election and a fond hope that economies would continue to grow forever are now staring at mountains of debt. Nations that seek solace in a money printing press are producing inflation that is snatching bread from the poor man’s table, while the rich laugh all the way to the bank and luxury destinations. as inequalities hit the roof. Many national economies teeter on the verge of collapse. The ensuing outrage has given rise to phenomenon such as the occupy movement.

Bancarotta!: An Allegory About Central Banking - or - What Ron Paul Didn't Say in 'End the Fed'

by King, M

116 Pages / 220 Illustrations
Why is it that so many people are in so much debt at the same time? Does it seem strange to you that no matter how hard one works, and in spite of all the advances in society, most hard working people cannot escape the treadmill of perpetual debt? Why are so many families losing their homes to foreclosure? Why are so many households dependent upon credit cards to supplement their income? Why does it take TWO working spouses to maintain a middle class lifestyle when it used to take just one? Why are so many young people still living at home with their parents? Why do prices always creep up? Why, in spite of continued economic “growth”, are living standards actually falling?

Europe after the Minotaur: Greece and the Future of the Global Economy

by Yanis Varoufakis

Syriza’s victory in the Greek general election in January 2015 is a truly historic and profound event – the first government of the radical left in Europe since World War Two. In this short ebook, extracted from the updated edition of The Global Minotaur, Yanis Varoufakis, the new finance minister of Greece and a Syriza MP, outlines his economic and political thinking and how he believes Europe can move beyond cuts and austerity. Varoufakis shows how today’s crisis in Europe is one inevitable symptom of a global ‘system’ which is now as unsustainable as it is imbalanced. With powerful clarity and conviction, he lays out the options available to us for reintroducing reason into a highly irrational global economic order.This is a unique insight into the thinking of a key figure in ...

Notes Towards a New Way of Life in America

by Luke Lea

In this 21st century 'capitalist' eutopia, Luke Lea explores a world of New Country Towns in which the people work part-time outside the home, and in their free time build their own houses, cultivate gardens, cook and care for their children and grandchildren, and pursue hobbies and other outside interests. They live on small family homesteads grouped around neighborhood greens, and get around town in glorified golf-carts. So thoroughly are work and leisure integrated into the fabric of their everyday lives that they don’t feel the need to retire, and they die at home in their beds as a rule, surrounded by loved ones.For those who would like to move to this world he provides a map with some directions for how to get there from here.*A eutopia (from the Greek eu-, good + topos, place; hen...

Untamed Urbanisms (Open Access) (Routledge Advances in Regional Economics, Science and Policy)

by Mark Swilling and Adriana Allen

One of the major challenges of urban development has been reconciling the way cities develop with the mounting evidence of resource depletion and the negative environmental impacts of predominantly urban-based modes of production and consumption. This book aims to re-politicise the relationship between urban development, sustainability and justice, and to explore the tensions emerging under real circumstances, as well as their potential for transformative change.For some, cities are the root of all that is unsustainable, while for others cities provide unique opportunities for sustainability-oriented innovations that address equity and ecological challenges. This book is rooted in the latter category, but recognises that if cities continue to evolve along current trajectories they will be ...

Disability, Health and Human Development (Palgrave Studies in Disability and International Development)

This open access book introduces the human development model to define disability and map its links with health and wellbeing, based on Sen’s capability approach. The author uses panel survey data with internationally comparable questions on disability for Ethiopia, Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda. It presents evidence on the prevalence of disability and its strong and consistent association with multidimensional poverty, mortality, economic insecurity and deprivations in education, morbidity and employment. It shows that disability needs to be considered from multiple angles including aging, gender, health and poverty. Ultimately, this study makes a call for inclusion and prevention interventions as solutions to the deprivations associated with impairments and health conditions.  ...

India’s Rise: Toward Trade-Led Growth

by C. Fred Bergsten

A new study by C. Fred Bergsten shows that India could increase its exports by $500 billion per year by joining the next stage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement. Bergsten argues trade liberalization would enable India to increase its annual economic growth to 8 to 10 percent, as targeted by the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Millions of new jobs would be created as a result, and poverty would be substantially further reduced. By contrast, India will lose as much as $50 billion of current exports because of increasing discrimination against it by other countries if it remains outside the new global trade network. This network includes the plurilateral agreements on international services, environmental goods, and government procurement now being negotiated ...
