This small book is about the slow recovery from the recent recession. In its Part I it addresses the Tea Party and other economic conservatives and sets forth thirty statements they dont want to believe, but must come to believe if they are ever to stop blocking private and government investment spending that will speed our economic recovery. But economic conservatives are not alone in their need to make changes. Economic theory needs to recognize more expansively and more rigorously that getting things done in an economy and especially in a sick economy requires a combination of free markets and economic organization, not free-markets alone. Part II of this book essentially provides the basic postulates of a theory of economic organization. Core principles of economic organizations are: that they exist to economize on the communications costs of markets; that above all truth and open information (transparency) are essential to the communication that supports economic cooperation; that economic organizations exist to serve individuals, not the other way around. This book joins the many other publications that have found Wall Street and all the other major financial markets wanting in respect to both first principles. The third part of this book sets forth specific examples of the changes needed in three major parts of current mainstream economics: Microeconomics; Macroeconomics; and International Economics.

It is a wise and inspiring book that reveals the lasting relevance of an ancient ceremony.

Making Tea Making Japan

The tea ceremony persists as one of the most evocative symbols of Japan. Originally a pastime of elite warriors in premodern society, it was later recast as an emblem of the modern Japanese state, only to be transformed again into its current incarnation, largely the hobby of middle-class housewives. How does the cultural practice of a few come to represent a nation as a whole? Although few non-Japanese scholars have peered behind the walls of a tea room, sociologist Kristin Surak came to know the inner workings of the tea world over the course of ten years of tea training. Here she offers the first comprehensive analysis of the practice that includes new material on its historical changes, a detailed excavation of its institutional organization, and a careful examination of what she terms "nation-work"—the labor that connects the national meanings of a cultural practice and the actual experience and enactment of it. She concludes by placing tea ceremony in comparative perspective, drawing on other expressions of nation-work, such as gymnastics and music, in Europe and Asia. Taking readers on a rare journey into the elusive world of tea ceremony, Surak offers an insightful account of the fundamental processes of modernity—the work of making nations.

From its origins as a distinct set of ritualised practices in the sixteenth century to its international expansion in the twentieth, tea culture has had a major impact on artistic production, connoisseurship, etiquette, food, design and more recently, on notions of Japaneseness. The authors dispel the myths around the development of tea practice, dispute the fiction of the dominance of aesthetics over politics in tea, and demonstrate that writing history has always been an integral part of tea culture.

Our American government began with a revolutionary idea. Alexis de Tocqueville called the evolutionary process of revolution wherein society evolves and institutes sweeping changes in government. The government of the United States was the most unique creation of human history since it was an actual collaboration between Nature and the Individual, for Nature and the Individual, with the express purpose of facilitating and improving that relationship. It took all of humanitys history, its successes and failures along with Natures tools of inspiration and evolution for the conception to manifest itself, until a government of the Individuals, by the Individuals, for the Individual, had come into being. The individual citizens of the United Colonies were living in a state of grace with nature and the society they made up created a clear mirror image of themselves, including internal equilibriums intended to preserve their self actualization process. A few years later, another revolution took place, one de Tocqueville would call the political kind. This revolution occurred in France, it would be the precursor for many other modern revolutions wherein one Centralized Collective Authority replaces another and where government attempts to impose its will on society. Today, in America this spiritual battle continues. On one side is the Tea Party Patriots carrying on the spiritual tradition of our Founders and Framers, on the other side those who look toward the archaic Eurocentric and Asiatic concepts of an all powerful Centralized Collective Authority.

A “fascinating” look at what students in Russia, France, Iran, and other nations are taught about America (The New York Times Book Review). This “timely and important” book (History News Network) gives us a glimpse into classrooms across the globe, where opinions about the United States are first formed. History Lessons includes selections from textbooks and teaching materials used in Russia, France, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Canada, and others, covering such events as the American Revolution, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Iran hostage crisis, and the Korean War—providing some alternative viewpoints on the history of the United States from the time of the Viking explorers to the post-Cold War era. By juxtaposing starkly contrasting versions of the historical events we take for granted, History Lessons affords us a sometimes hilarious, often sobering look at what the world thinks about America’s past. “A brilliant idea.” —Foreign Affairs

The Tea Party And The Remaking Of Republican Conservatism

This revised edition features a new afterword, updated through the 2016 election. On February 19, 2009, CNBC commentator Rick Santelli delivered a dramatic rant against Obama administration programs to shore up the plunging housing market. Invoking the Founding Fathers and ridiculing "losers" who could not pay their mortgages, Santelli called for "Tea Party" protests. Over the next two years, conservative activists took to the streets and airways, built hundreds of local Tea Party groups, and weighed in with votes and money to help right-wing Republicans win electoral victories in 2010. In this penetrating new study, Harvard University's Theda Skocpol and Vanessa Williamson go beyond images of protesters in Colonial costumes to provide a nuanced portrait of the Tea Party. What they find is sometimes surprising. Drawing on grassroots interviews and visits to local meetings in several regions, they find that older, middle-class Tea Partiers mostly approve of Social Security, Medicare, and generous benefits for military veterans. Their opposition to "big government" entails reluctance to pay taxes to help people viewed as undeserving "freeloaders" - including immigrants, lower income earners, and the young. At the national level, Tea Party elites and funders leverage grassroots energy to further longstanding goals such as tax cuts for the wealthy, deregulation of business, and privatization of the very same Social Security and Medicare programs on which many grassroots Tea Partiers depend. Elites and grassroots are nevertheless united in hatred of Barack Obama and determination to push the Republican Party sharply to the right. The Tea Party and the Remaking of Republican Conservatism combines fine-grained portraits of local Tea Party members and chapters with an overarching analysis of the movement's rise, impact, and likely fate.
