Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Authors from various fields were commissioned to write essays that identified positive and non-normative fundamentals in the relationship, that were that were not specific to a property- government system, and that identified the subjects that their ideology and specific property-government systems take positions on down to the deepest levels of existential problems. Among the 22 resulting perspectives are the origins of property and the powers of government, democracy and markets, product standards, and what government and money can do for each other.
