This is not a comforting book it is a book about disturbing issues that are urgently important today and enduringly critical for the future It rejects both merit and historical redress as principles for guiding public policy It shows how peace movements have led to war and to needless casualties in those wars It argues that equality is neither right nor wrong but meaningless br i The Quest for Cosmic Justice i shows how confused conceptions of justice end up promoting injustice how confused conceptions of equality end up promoting inequality and how the tyranny of social visions prevents many people from confronting the actual consequences of their own beliefs and policies Those consequences include the steady and dangerous erosion of the fundamental principles of freedom and the quiet repeal of the American revolution, Controversies in politics arise from many sources but the conflicts that endure for generations or centuries show a remarkably consistent pattern In this classic work Thomas Sowell analyzes this pattern He describes the two competing visions that shape our debates about the nature of reason justice equality and power the constrained vision which sees human nature as unchanging and selfish and the unconstrained vision in which human nature is malleable and perfectible A Conflict of Visions offers a convincing case that ethical and policy disputes circle around the disparity between both outlooks, Scary headlines and scarier statistics tell the story of a financial crisis on a scale not seen in decades certainly not within the lifetime of most Americans Moreover this is a worldwide financial crisis Financial institutions on both sides of the Atlantic have either collapsed or have been saved from collapse by government bailouts as a result of buying securities based on American housing values that eroded or evaporated Now completely revised in paperback The Housing Boom and Bust is designed to unravel the tangled threads of that story It also attempts to determine whether what is being done to deal with the problem is more likely to make things better or worse, This is the revised and enlarged edition of a new kind of introduction to economics for the general public without graphs statistics or jargon In addition to being updated Basic Economics has also become more internationalized by including economic problems from more countries around the world because the basic principles of economics are not confined by national borders While most chapter titles remain the same their contents have changed considerably reflecting the experiences of many different peoples and cultures
