Wealth Poverty and Politics

Author: Thomas Sowell
Publisher: Hachette UK
ISBN: 9780465096770
Release Date: 2016-09-06
Genre: Political Science

In Wealth, Poverty, and Politics, Thomas Sowell, one of the foremost conservative public intellectuals in this country, argues that political and ideological struggles have led to dangerous confusion about income inequality in America. Pundits and politically motivated economists trumpet ambiguous statistics and sensational theories while ignoring the true determinant of income inequality: the production of wealth. We cannot properly understand inequality if we focus exclusively on the distribution of wealth and ignore wealth production factors such as geography, demography, and culture. Sowell contends that liberals have a particular interest in misreading the data and chastises them for using income inequality as an argument for the welfare state. Refuting Thomas Piketty, Paul Krugman, and others on the left, Sowell draws on accurate empirical data to show that the inequality is not nearly as extreme or sensational as we have been led to believe. Transcending partisanship through a careful examination of data, Wealth, Poverty, and Politics reveals the truth about the most explosive political issue of our time.

Zen und die Kunst ein Motorrad zu warten

ISBN: 9783104028484
Release Date: 2013-04-11
Genre: Fiction

»Dieses Buch bietet eine andere, ernsthaftere Alternative zum materiellen Erfolg an. Das heißt, es ist eigentlich weniger eine Alternative als viel-mehr eine Ausweitung der Bedeutung von ›Erfolg‹ auf etwas Größeres als das bloße Bemühen, eine gute Stellung zu finden und sich nichts zuschulden kommen zu lassen. Und auch etwas Größeres als bloße Freiheit. Es setzt ein positives Ziel, auf das man hinarbeiten kann, das einen aber nicht einengt. Das, so scheint mir, ist der Hauptgrund für den Erfolg des Buches. Es traf sich, daß die ganze Kultur genau nach dem auf der Suche war, was dieses Buch anzubieten hat.« Robert M. Pirsig

Die Visualisierung von Sachverhalten ist noch erheblich verbessert worden. Ein umfangreiches Glossar mit deutschen und englischen Begriffen ergänzt dieses bewährte Lehrbuch.

Leben auf dem Mississippi Nach dem fernen Westen

Author: Mark Twain
Publisher: BoD – Books on Demand
ISBN: 9783862678624
Release Date: 2014-01-24
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Mark Twain (1835-1910) verbrachte seine Kindheit in der Kleinstadt Hannibal am Mississippi. Seit 1859 war er Lotse auf dem Fluß, musste die Arbeit 1862 jedoch wegen des amerikanischen Bürgerkriegs aufgeben. Danach unternahm er ausgedehnte Reisen in den Westen der USA. In den beiden Teilen dieses Buches schildert er auf humoristische Weise seine Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen und setzt sich sarkastisch mit dem »American Way of Life« seiner Zeitgenossen auseinander.
