Quotes On Organizing and Management From Mary Parker Follett

I am convinced that any feeling of exaltation because we have people under us should be conquered, for I am sure that if we enjoy being over people, there will be something in our manner which will make them dislike being under us.

The manager cannot share his(/her) power with division superintendent or foreman or workman, but he(she) can give them opportunities for developing their power.

Unity, not uniformity, must be our aim. We attain unity only through variety. Differences must be integrated, not annihilated, not absorbed.

The Fed As Super Duper Regulator? Will We be Duped Again?

 By L. Randall Wray

     Treasury Secretary Geithner is floating a plan that would consolidate more power in the hands of the Fed. The idea is that because it failed so miserably over the past decade to recognize a series of asset bubbles and growing systemic risk, it should be placed in charge of assessing and controlling systemic risk.

The Neo-Classical Economists have No Clothes (tri-fold pamphlet)

  The 19th-century creators of neoclassical economics are credited with transforming their field into a scientific discipline, though in practice this really is not true at all This is the theory that now serves as the basis for coordinating economic activities on a local and global scale. The truth is that they established an abstracted world view that serves as a cover story to justify massive extraction of wealth.

The Hocus Pocus Monetary Policies of the US Federal Reserve (tri-fold pamphlet)

The corporate media promotes the myth that the US Federal Reserve (hereafter noted as "the Fed") 'fights' inflation by increasing interest rates. The importance of this staged intervention is far less than the problems which it creates. It's past time to put this fiction of the "wizards" of Oz to rest. All of these definitions are based upon a centrally controlled banking system. In most cases these terms are only useful on a sector and regional basis. The basic definition of money is that it is a legal institution to facilitate exchanges.
