Item Description: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. 0742536599 Solid retired library book with usual library markings; else VG. Text free of underlining, writing and highlighting. Overall, a very nice clean copy. What's the truth about globalization . . . and what's just "globaloney?" Michael Veseth believes that much of what students understand about globalization is really globaloney--bombast built on a few vivid images and exceptional cases that distort more than they reveal about the world around us. Globaloney separates rhetoric from reality by snapping close-ups of the classic globalization images and comparing them with unexpected alternative visions that resonate with culturally savvy college-aged readers. Do Michael Jordan and Nike really define globalization? Why not David Beckham and World Cup soccer? Is globalization McDonalds and McWorld? Why isn't the global wine market a better metaphor? And what can we learn about how globalization works at the grassroots by comparing the elitist, publicity-hungry Slow Food movement with the massive but virtually invisible international trade in worn and wrinkled second-hand clothes? Veseth convincingly explains how all globalization is local, why the French so love to hate it, and what Adam Smith has to do with it. The book shows why it is dangerous to generalize about globalization and, through its wealth of examples, demonstrates that globalization is not one big thing but many different yet related, particular things. An ideal supplement for courses on international political economy and international relations, Globaloney is an irreverent but important look at how globalization really works. 272 pages.

The Tea Party movement doesn t have a single leader or a central organization, and that s the way the members of the movement like it. How though, can an unorganized movement get anything done? Economist Adam Smith addressed this same question. He recognized that the free market is made up of countless businesses all pursuing their own goals. With no central leadership or organization the free market system in many ways resembles chaos. Yet out of this chaos emerges a coherent system that produces a greater common good: an efficient and productive economy. Smith called this phenomenon the free market s invisible hand. In this book we ll take concepts from economics and apply them in a new and unique way to politics. From the outside it will resemble chaos, but the result will be a coherent and efficient system that achieves the goals of the Tea Party movement. Our new system will produce a greater common good without centralized organization or leadership, because (like the free market system) it will be guided by an invisible force-the conservative hand.

Item Description: WW Norton Co, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 190 x 135 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Adam Smith (1723-1790) has been adopted by neoconservatives as the ideological father of unregulated business and small government. His invisible hand has become a commanding shorthand for politicians promoting laissez-faire economics, but Smith never used it in reference to free-market capitalism. Smith was a deeply moral man who considered himself a philosopher, not an economist. Drawing on twenty-five years of research, James Buchan renders an Adam Smith untainted by political and economic interests. This compelling narrative uncovers Smith s passionate commitment to develop an ethical theory essential to his vision of a just commercial society. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780393329940

Item Description: Bottom of the Hill Publishing, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 150 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Profits of Religion: An Essay in Economic Interpretation is a snapshot of the religious movements in the U.S. before its entry into World War I. The book is the first of the Dead Hand series: six books Upton Sinclair wrote on American institutions. The series also includes The Brass Check (journalism), The Goose-step (higher education), The Goslings (elementary and high school education), Mammonart (art) and Money Writes! (literature). The term Dead Hand ironically refers to Adam Smith s concept that allowing an invisible hand of individual self interest to shape economic relations provides the best result for society as a whole. In this book, Sinclair attacks institutionalized religion as a source of income to parasites, and the natural ally of every form of oppression and exploitation. Most clergymen are hypocrites, but they are not entirely to blame. Like other men, they are victimized by the competitive wage-system, which presents them with the alternative to swindle or to starve. Sinclair savages the Episcopal establishment for transforming the proletarian Jesus into a defender of wealth and privilege, and for a long history of alliance with political power in England and the United states. Turning to the nonconforming Protestant sects, adherents of The Church of the Merchants are focused on achieving prosperity within the existing economic system. So are the devotees of the mostly California-based new religions or cults , including New Thought. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781935785064
