God the Economist

God does not appear in the modern market. For most economists this is as it should be. It is in no way necessary, according to modern economic theory, to consider God when thinking about economy.

God does not appear in the modern market. For most economists this is as it should be. It is in no way necessary, according to modern economic theory, to consider God when thinking about economy. Indeed, the absence of God in economic matters is viewed as necessary to the great advances in modern economy. The difficulty with modern market economies, however, is that human livelihood is also left out of the theory and practice of the market economy. ?"I propose to bring the church's teaching about God, the doctrine of the Trinity, to bear on the masked connections between God and economy. I will treat the Trinity as the way of understanding what the Bible calls the 'economy of God.'?

Political Europe

This booklet contains 10 briefs on the political structure and individual parties of the European Economic Community, all of which have previously appeared in The Economist. The first four briefs deal with the' institutions and powers of the central bodies in Strasbourg and Luxembourg: the parliament, the budget process and the day-to-day problems of managing a multi-lingual European government. A page of maps and charts then explains and analyses the outcome of the elections to the assembly. Following this are six briefs on the major political groupings within the European parliament, contrasting their power there with the influence they have inside the individual member countries. The booklet is thus a practical and, it is hoped, useful guide to the development and present state of European political ideas -communism, socialism, liberalism, Christian democracy, conservatism and nationalism - within the broader context of the relatively new idea of a federated European community.

Xenophon the Athenian was born 431 B.C. He was a pupil of Socrates. He marched with the Spartans, and was exiled from Athens. Sparta gave him land and property in Scillus, where he lived for many years before having to move once more, to settle in Corinth. He died in 354 B.C. The Economist records Socrates and Critobulus in a talk about profitable estate management, and a lengthy recollection by Socrates of Ischomachus discussion of the same topic.

Since its founding by James Wilson in 1843, The Economist has been the world's most enduring and distinguished proponent of free markets and free trade. In celebration of this influential paper's 150th anniversary, Ruth Dudley Edwards has written The Pursuit of Reason, an authoritative history over 10 years in the making. Now published for the first time in the United States, this edition features a new foreword by Bill Emmott, editor of The Economist since 1993. Edwards's narrative is the product of hundreds of interviews and exhaustive research - a herculean effort exacerbated by the fact that most of the paper's records had been destroyed in 1941 during the London Blitz. The Pursuit of Reason tells the stories of a distinguished group of men - and some women - who managed the paper and reported on the leading issues of their day. Of particular interest to those concerned with the future of the press is Edwards's account of the steps taken in 1928 by Wilson's descendants to preserve the independence of The Economist in a transfer of ownership, and of the endurance of this unusual trust arrangement over time as similar efforts throughout the newspaper industry have failed. The Pursuit of Reason is the story of a powerful newspaper, and of how quality journalism is made. It is also a chronicle of modern ideas and a sweeping history of the major international economic, business and political issues of the past 150 years.
