Mini-essays that try to bring a loosely philosophical style of analysis to various topics (insofar as the blog format permits!). Constructive comments are welcome and I will try to improve the relevant post in response. Meritocracy means that those who deserve to, succeed, and those who succeed are those who deserve to. What could possibly be more fair than that? While it seems easy to agree that a functioning and successful society should endorse meritocracy to some extent, a society based on merit alone would not only be impossible to achieve, but might also become more awful the more we tried. What is a meritocracy? It would ...

The Myth of Public Goods
The myth of public goods is based on the belief that there are special things that everybody needs, but nobody will pay for. The priests perpetuating this myth include self-interested professors who spend a lifetime informing young, bright-eyed students about the magical qualities of these special goods that can only be provided by popular people with big guns. The media reports on the provision of these special goods and services as if this violently engineered operating system was mandated from the heavens. The democratic-corporate state is therefore a necessary evil that must impose itself on society, touching ... market research, surveys and trends


Poll: The Politics Of Health Care - CBS News
Although most Americans say they are generally satisfied with the quality of their own health care, including 41 percent who say they are very satisfied, it's a different story when it comes to the cost of care.

A Comment on Rothman and Espenshade and a Reply to Simon
article titled "Fiscal Impacts of Immigration to the United States", Eric S. Rothman and Thomas J. Espenshade made some incorrect statements about my work on the tax-and-transfer-payment situation of immigrants. These statements may mislead the reader and wrongly give the impression that my work was in error or not soundly done. 1. Rothman and Espenshade say that there was an "omission of older immigrant groups" and that this "gives a sense of incompleteness to Simon's findings" (p. 386). In fact, I did not omit any groups. The data on the oldest group were presented in my original published ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Gaza Blocakade: A Dialogue

I would like to  quickly address  a few issues:  is Israel's blockade of Gaza legal?    Is it strategically  necessary?  Is there a humanitarian disaster in  Gaza, that should place it as a top priority among all the  areas in the world where human rights advocates should be directing their ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
People in Gaza Await Easing of Israeli Blockade
GAZA — The beach was teeming with children and their parents, and it seemed the whole neighborhood had come out to kick a ball, fly kites or just sit in the sand as the sun set in the Mediterranean Sea. So Muhammad Ali decided it was the perfect time to start a business, to try to sell corn on the beach. On Monday at the Gaza City port, Palestinians protested against the Israeli blockade of Gaza and in support of ships bound for Gaza from Lebanon. Since the Israeli blockade of Gaza began three years ago, he said, he had been unable to find steady work. So on Monday he piled fresh-picked corn onto the back of a donkey cart, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Why is it okay for illegal immigrants to obtain goods and services ...
Okay - I'm playing the devil's advocate. I have seen a lot of questions regarding the recent laws passed in Arizona reagrding illegal immigration. There are a lot of people for and against the law. I personally am trying to understand why people feel it is okay to allow illegal immigrants to stay in this country illegally. (I am totally for legal immigration and feel our diversity is what makes this Country great) Many responses to other questions "pulled the race card". Putting race aside, putting human rights aside, please answer this question purely from an economic standpoint. "Why is it okay for Illegal ...
