My favorite discount online broker is Vanguard. They are not the cheapest commission-wise, but their customer service has been excellent. Plus, they give a high credit interest rate on the cash portion of your account. Mises, Rothbard, and Austrian Economics The school of "Austrian Economics" advocates credit-based money instead of debt-based money. There are two separate websites, www.mises.org and www.mises.net . These philosophies are a precursor to agorism. However, they still hold out false hope that the people who control the government can be convinced to switch to a fair monetary system. They fall short of ...
The trade union, through its leadership, bargains with the employer on behalf of union members (rank and file members) and negotiates labour contracts ( collective bargaining ) with employers. This may include the negotiation of wages , work rules, complaint procedures, rules governing hiring, firing and promotion of workers, benefits, workplace safety and policies. The agreements negotiated by the union leaders are binding on the rank and file members and the employer and in some cases on other non-member workers. Originating in Europe , trade unions became popular in many countries during the Industrial Revolution , when the ...

The connotation is difficult to get at, but maybe the denotation is clear. L&O conservatives like police officers. They also like all branches of the military. By "like" I mean, in any dispute between a particular police officer and a citizen, or a particular member of the military and a civilian, their default position is to trust the former against the latter. If we know nothing else, our gut reaction ought to be to trust the uniformed against the non-uniformed, says the L&O conservative. The same is not true of judges, especially Supreme Court judges. Judges are often subject to ridicule at the hands of these ... market research, surveys and trends

Will Hutton: The British middle class is operating a closed shop ...
If Mao and Attlee could not get rid of it, don't expect much progress in the foreseeable future. I'm talking class. The ability of China's Communist party to reinvent itself as a version of the Confucian elite it purported to eliminate - a Chinese Animal Farm - and the capacity of Britain's private-school system to carry on supplying most of Britain's elite are two sides of the same coin. Class, like death and taxes, is always with us. The resourcefulness of class in its resistance to social levelling, whether its roots are parliamentary or revolutionary, is extraordinary. A classless society has proved ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Defiant: RMT union leader Bob Crow said the Government's cuts programme amounted to a 'declaration of war' This is the moment that the brothers have been waiting for. After years of sullen acquiescence under the rule of Labour, their natural political allies, the trade unions are now eagerly gearing up for a full-blooded confrontation with the new Tory-led Coalition Government. Protests and strikes seem inevitable. The anger of the trade union leaders has been fuelled by the programme of massive public sector cuts announced by the Coalition to tackle the crippling deficit. Predictably the unions, whose membership ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Yvette Cooper claims the Coalition's emergency budget is the worst for women since the creation of the welfare state Women are set to bear the brunt of the Coalition's budget cuts, with the majority of the �8billion raised from tax and benefit changes to come from female taxpayers. Research commissioned by shadow welfare secretary Yvette Cooper showed that �6billion - more than 70 per cent - of the revenue raised will come from women and just �2billion from men.

Utah History Encyclopedia
In 1955 Utah's predominantly Mormon and Republican legislature passed its version of a "right-to-work" law and Governor J. Bracken Lee, a conservative non-Mormon Republican, signed the bill. Utah thus became the eighteenth state, and one of the few outside the South, to enact this type of legislation. The passage and retention of this law, outlawing all forms of union security in Utah, has deep historical roots associated with the locally dominant Mormon Church, which has had a long history of conflict with the labor union movement. The beginning of official church resistance to union security provisions, usually ...

losed shop and open shop The term "closed shop" is used to signify an establishment employing only members of a labor union. The union shop, a closely allied term, indicates a company where employees do not have to belong to a labor union when hired but are required to join within a specified period of time in order to keep their jobs. An open shop, strictly speaking, is one that does not restrict its employees to union members. Among European workers the issue of the closed shop has not been so sharply contested as in the United States, where since c.1840 the closed-shop policy had been adopted by most labor unions. ...
