Participating in the economy is a part of everyday life, yet much of what is commonly accepted as fact is wrong. Keynesian schoolteachers and the liberal media have filled the world with politically correct errors that myth-busting professor Robert Murphy sets straight. Murphy explains hot topics like outsourcing (why it's good for Americans) and zoning restrictions (why they're not). Just like the other books in the P.I.G. series, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism pulls no punches. Murphy defends the free market on such issues as safety regulations, racial discrimination, and child-labor laws, in a breezy manner that is anything but textbook-like. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism sets the record straight on everything you thought you knew about economics. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Perry Richards.

We have met the enemy and they are ours.” (Oliver Hazard Perry)Sandwiched between the Revolution and the Civil War, the War of 1812 is one of America’s forgotten conflicts, and the stalemated nature of the war (which resolved virtually none of either side’s war aims) has also ensured that it is often given merely a cursory overview. Great Britain, as the leader of several coalitions of conservative European countries trying to isolate and snuff out the revolutionary spirit and the ambitions of Napoleon, had been at war with France almost continuously since 1792. Under President Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809) and James Madison (1809-1817), the United States tried to steer a course that would keep it from being drawn into the European war and defend its neutrality on the high seas. However, both Britain and France wanted to hurt the other side economically by keeping goods out of their enemy’s hands. Thus, they did not faithfully respect the rights of neutral nations. The British government, in 1807, had issued the “Orders in Council”, which enforced a naval blockade against France, and with a shortage of seamen to man the Royal Navy, Britain also felt justified in stopping and sometimes firing on ships flying the American flag in the name of apprehending escaped British sailors. The other main cause of war was distress on the Northwestern frontier, where the British in Canada were supporting Indian resistance to American settlement. So called “War Hawks” from that region in Congress pushed for a declaration of war. Some hoped that a war would not only stop Indian depredations but evict the British from Canada and lead to completion of some unfinished business from the American Revolution, namely Canada joining the US. Americans had few things to celebrate during the War of 1812, and fighting on the frontier against the British and their native allies didn’t go any better than the conflict did in other theaters, but one of the on UNKNOWN N N ©2019 Charles River Editors;(P)2019 Charles River Editors http://www.audible.de/pd/B07ZR9RK56?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B07ZR9RK56?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Sinister Wizardry: Royals of Villain Academy, Book 3 (Unabridged) 20.95 AVAILABLE Sinister Wizardry: Royals of Villain Academy, Book 3 (Unabridged) Sinister Wizardry (Unabridged) Eva Chase Do I want to spend my summer with my vicious classmates at Bloodstone University - better known as Villain Academy?

No, thank you. But I've got to find a way to tackle my enemies before they try to destroy me again, and the trail to potential answers starts there.I've had it with taking the high road, though. Come at me, and you'd better believe I'll hit you back just as hard. Maybe that'll mean I have to tap into my dark magic instincts more than I'd ever have planned to, but I'm not letting one more person I care about get hurt.That also means I've got to steer clear of the one guy I completely trust, or I might ruin his life, too. With two of the other scions vying for my attention and the last shifting his campaign against me in an unexpected way, I've got my hands full as it is.I can't say whether I'll survive everything this summer has in store. All I know for sure is it's going to be a hot one.Sinister Wizardry is the third book in a university-age paranormal academy series. Expect magical villainy, a tough heroine who bends to no one’s will, a dollop of steam, and a slow-burn enemies-to-lovers reverse harem romance where there'll be no choosing required.

In Who Gets in and Why, journalist and higher education expert Jeffrey Selingo dispels entrenched notions of how to compete and win at the admissions game and reveals that teenagers and parents have much to gain by broadening their notion of what qualifies as a good college". Hint: It's not all about the sticker on the car window.Selingo, who was embedded in three different admissions offices - a selective private university, a leading liberal arts college, and a flagship public campus - closely observed gatekeepers as they made their often agonizing and sometimes life-changing decisions. He also followed select students and their parents, and he traveled around the country meeting with high school counselors, marketers, behind-the-scenes consultants, and college rankers.While many have long believed that admissions is merit-based, rewarding the best students, Who Gets in and Why presents a more complicated truth, showing that "who gets in" is frequently more about the college's agenda than the applicant. In a world where thousands of equally qualified students vie for a fixed number of spots at elite institutions, admissions officers often make split-second decisions based on a variety of factors - like diversity, money, and, ultimately, whether a student will enroll if accepted.One of the most insightful books ever about "getting in" and what higher education has become, Who Gets in and Why not only provides an usually intimate look at how admissions decisions get made, but guides prospective stu 1.

Lone Star Nation: How Texas Will Transform America
29,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

To most Americans, Texas has been that love-it-or-hate it slice of the country that has sparked controversy, bred presidents, and fomented turmoil from the American Civil War to George W. Bush.  But that Texas is changing-and it will change America itself. Richard Parker takes the reader on a tour across today's booming Texas, an evolving landscape that is densely urban, overwhelmingly Hispanic, exceedingly powerful in the global economy, and increasingly liberal.  This Texas will have to ensure upward mobility, reinvigorate democratic rights, and confront climate change-just to continue its historic economic boom.  This is not the Texas of George W. Bush or Rick Perry. Instead, this is a Texas that will remake the American experience in the twenty-first century-as California did in the twentieth-with surprising economic, political, and social consequences.  Along the way, Parker analyzes the powerful, interviews the insightful, and tells the story of everyday people because, after all, one in ten Americans in this century will call Texas something else: Home.

Practically Human

If you are a student wondering what to study in college, this book is for you. It invites you to seek out the practical benefits of studying literature, language, the arts, history, religion, and philosophy. These disciplines-known collectively as the humanities-will teach you to analyze complex social dynamics, articulate good arguments, and apply the hard-won wisdom of the past to new and challenging situations. ENDORSEMENTS 'The intellectual insights offered in this book are what we would expect from members of Calvin College's world-class faculty. What we also get, however, is some marvelous storytelling about personal scholarly pilgrimages. A must-read for people who need to be convinced of the value of Christian liberal arts education. And a fine refresher course for those of us who are already convinced!' Richard Mouw President and Professor of Christian Philosophy Fuller Theological Seminary 'The humanities are dying, or so we're told. These authors enliven them with stories, examples, and images that nourish the mind and soul. They challenge us to expand our humanity-to think more deeply, to listen more carefully, to see more astutely, and to empathize more profoundly.' Perry L. Glanzer Associate Professor of Educational Foundations Baylor University

Addressing the proper relation of moral and religious belief to politics and law, especially constitutional law, Perry here discusses whether a common moral foundation exists that is capable of providing, in a diverse social system like ours, consistent guidelines for handling divisive political, policy, religious and constitutional disputes. His study represents a distinctive position in the vast and growing literature on the moral foundations of liberal political and legal life.
