The Road to Serfdom: Text and Documents–The Definitive Edition ...
has inspired and infuriated politicians, scholars, and general readers for half a century. Originally published in 1944—when Eleanor Roosevelt supported the efforts of Stalin, and Albert Einstein subscribed lock, stock, and barrel to the socialist program— The Road to Serfdom was seen as heretical for its passionate warning against the dangers of state control over the means of production.

First published by the University of Chicago Press on September ... market research, surveys and trends

The dilemma of the dingo
Victoria is taking the first tentative steps towards protecting its dingo population. But the moves are not without controversy. Photo: Nicole Emanuel The dingo helped shape Europeans' first impressions of the vast and perplexing Australian continent. Since those first colonial experiences, the dingo has taken on an iconic status in Australian culture, but a contradictory one. The dingo is deceptively familiar in its dog-like appearance. At the same time, there is something distant and defiant about it. It is resistant to human priorities. The perception of this native species as a danger to livestock as more land has been ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The author�s essential argument is that the computer and its applications in the workplace renew and refine the industrial culture that had formed the mass production and much of routine white-collar work throughout the 20th century (and had been introduced during the second half of the 19th century). The culture has consisted in the standardization of production and products; the simplification of the work process by transferring, or seeking to transfer, the worker�s skill and know-how to the engineer and machine; the measurement of the minimum time needed to perform given tasks; and close monitoring of the process and ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
