  • "Der Markt" Existiert Nicht: Aufklarung Gegen Die Marktvergotterung

    Der Markt diktiert unsere Wirtschaft: Er zwingt Unternehmen zu Entlassungen, scheucht die Politik vor sich her oder reagiert nervos. Doch existiert dieser -Markt- uberhaupt? Und was verbirgt sich dahinter? Peter Seele und Lucas Zapf raumen auf mit dieser Vergotterung eines bewahrten Tauschmechanismus zwischen Individuen, Unternehmen und offentlichen Akteuren. In diesem Buch betrachten sie den Marktbegriff unter logischen Aspekten und untersuchen seine Bedeutung und Verwendung in der Sprache. Mit diesem logischen Blickwinkel fallen sie keine Aussage uber ein wahrhaftiges Dasein des Marktes - vielmehr weisen sie darauf hin, wie die Marktvergotterung genutzt wird, um beispielsweise unangenehme Entscheidungen zu legitimieren und die Verantwortung auf einen ominosen Markt abzuwalzen. Sie entwerfen einen freien und aufgeklarten Marktbegriff, der diese riskanten Verzerrungen verhindert. Die Autoren Peter Seele ist Professor fur Corporate Social Responsibility & Business Ethics, ausgebildet als Okonom, Philosoph und protestantischer Theologe. Lucas Zapf ist Postdoc, Religionsokonom und interdisziplinarer Geisteswissenschaftler. Beide arbeiten an der Universita della Svizzera italiana in Lugano.
  • "The Law", "The State", and Other Political Writings, 1843-1850

    Frédéric Bastiat was a keen observer and analyst of political and economic problems and a passionate proponent of liberal economic theory. “The Law,” “The State,” and Other Political Writings (1843–1850), collects nineteen of Bastiat's "pamphlets," or articles, ranging from the theory of value and rent, public choice and collective action, government intervention and regulation, the balance of trade, education, and trade unions to price controls, capital and growth, and taxation. Many of these are topics still relevant and debated today.Bastiat's famous essay "The Law" showcases his talents as an activist for the free market. He explains that the law, far from being what it ought to be, "namely the instrument that enabled the state to protect individuals' rights and property, had become the means for what he termed 'spoliation,' or plunder." From the article "The State," in which Bastiat argues against socialism, comes perhaps his best-remembered quotation: "The state is the great fiction by which everyone endeavors to live at the expense of everyone else."Throughout his articles, Bastiat demonstrates how the combination of careful logic, consistency of principle, and clarity of exposition is the instrument for solving most economic and social problems. Readers will find extensive introductory material, including notes on the translation and on the editions of the OEuvres Complètes, a chronology of Bastiat’s life and works, two maps of France showing the cities associated with Bastiat, annotations to the articles, and a bibliography. A special section provides little-known anecdotes about Bastiat and his contemporaries, including his editor Prosper Paillottet, who became Bastiat’s friend and eventually his executor.In addition, this edition also contains footnotes and glossary entries that help explain the political, economic, and intellectual context in which Bastiat lived and worked. Filling gaps on Bastiat and his philosophy, this volume features articles that have never before been translated in English.Frédéric Bastiat (1801–1850) was one of the leading advocates of free markets and free trade in the mid-nineteenth century.Jacques de Guenin is founder of the Cercle Frédéric Bastiat. He is a graduate of the École des Mines in Paris and holds a Master of Sciences from the University of California, Berkeley.Pascal Salin is Emeritus Professor of Economics, Paris University, and former president of the Mont Pelerin Society. He is the author of Libéralisme; Français, n’ayez pas peur du libéralism; and Revenir au capitalisme, pour éviter les crises.Dennis O'Keeffe is Professor of Social Science at the University of Buckingham, Buckingham, England, and is Senior Research Fellow in Education at the Institute of Economic Affairs, London.David M.

    "The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasn't fashion - it was a stolen book. She spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and dumpster diving. By age twenty-two, she had resigned herself to employment, but was still broke, directionless, and checking IDs in the lobby of an art school--a job she'd taken for the health insurance. It was in that lobby that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Flash forward eight years to today, and she's the Founder, CEO and Creative Director of Nasty Gal, a $100+ million online fashion retailer with over 350 employees. Sophia's never been a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she's written #GIRLBOSS for girls like her: outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, evenwhen that path is windy as all hell and lined with naysayers.
