Pygmalion
Pygmalion In this day of repressive, unsavory humanity, where the young idolize the lower classes, while the politically correct look down upon the elite, every household should have a copy of this timeless tale. Although many scorn the elite, it is they who preside over society. This book is as entertaining as it is provocative. Often these two qualities do not harmonize, but in Pygmalion they are conjugal. With its inclusion of religious issues, gender issues, social issues, family issues, an

The Godfather story was written before the movie came out approximately 30 years ago. At first glance, the book and the movie appear the same. Upon further investigation, however, the two forms of media do possess certain differences. Although they are different in the areas of characters, setting, and dialog,

The trick to discovering that passion is to find what makes us happy.

The crisis has caused Asian currencies to fall 50-60%, stock markets to decline 40%, banks to close, and property values to drop.

Keynes was more geared toward the bigger picture and focused on macroeconomics. His work led to the government and many economists believi

Ricardo's Theory Of Value
Ricardo\'s Theory Of Value One of the enduring questions of economics is Where do profits come from? One of the ways in which economic philosophers have tried to answer it is by first answering the question of value. At the center of most economic paradigms is a Theory of Value. The classical political economists found value to be determined in production; since most of the cost of production could be reduced to labour, this approach was refined into The Labour Theory of Value.
