For three decades free-market leaders have tried to reverse longstanding Keynesian economic policies, but have only produced larger government, greater debt, and more centralized economic power. So how can we achieve a truly free-market system, especially at this historical moment when capitalism seems to be in crisis? The answer, says John C. Médaille, is to stop pretending that economics is something on the order of the physical sciences; it must be a humane science, taking into account crucial social contexts. Toward a Truly Free Market argues that any attempt to divorce economic equilibrium from economic equity will lead to an unbalanced economy—one that falls either to ruin or to ruinous government attempts to redress the balance. In Toward a Truly Free Market, Médaille not only points out the problems, but also offers viable solutions, showing how we can: Slash the federal budget by half Reduce the tax code from nine million words to a couple of pages Drastically curb the government’s sprawling bureaucracy Manage natural resources safely, while cutting the budget in half End the bailouts Really reform the health care system And much more In Toward a Truly Free Market, Médaille makes a refreshingly clear case for the economic theory—and practice—known as distributism. Unlike many of his fellow distributists, who argue primarily from moral terms, Médaille enters the economic debate on purely economic terms.

How has China been able to maintain high-speed economic growth during the last thirty-plus years and successfully transform itself from a poor, backward, and developing country to become the world's second-largest economy? What are the challenges that China faces today and how will she deal with them in order to continue moving toward a truly prosperous and modern society? Standing at a crossroads today, what future direction should China choose: a free market economy or state capitalism? In a series of penetrating dialogues, Wu Jinglian, China's most celebrated and influential economist, and Ma Guochuan, chief commentator of Caijing Magazine, attempt to address the following question: "Where is China going?" This volume offers critical insights into the historical evolution of China's ongoing economic and social transformation. Strongly reflecting Professor Wu's views on the future prospects of the economic reforms, the book provides readers with a deep and lucid understanding of the social and economic issues now confronting China, analyzes their underlying causes, and examines the serious challenges to implementing further reforms. Professor Wu argues that the only way to escape the various social ills in China today is to restart the economic and political reforms, which began thirty years ago but have slowed down during the recent decade, and to move China in the direction of a market economy, the rule of law, and democracy.

The key to understanding economics The economic crisis that erupted in 2008 was not inevitable. Proponents of the Austrian School of economics have repeatedly demonstrated that a boom-and-bust cycle is unnatural and unnecessary. Unfortunately, few people have even a cursory understanding of Austrian economics--a problem economist Harry C. Veryser tackles in It Didn't Have to Be This Way. Veryser provides a clear and persuasive introduction to the Austrian School and its major figures, such as Ludwig von Mises and F. A. Hayek, and before them Carl Menger. He shows why the Austrian view--emphasising individual human action and markets free from government intrusion--offers the surest path back to peace and prosperity. Best introduction to poorly understood Austrian economics: Veryser brilliantly explains a vitally important school of economic thought that many people know nothing about. This book corrects misconceptions and makes a convincing case why the Austrian view offers the best approach to economics. Explains current economic crisis: Veryser shows how Austrian economics predicted exactly the kind of collapse that occurred in 2008, and why a boom-and-bust cycle is unnatural and unnecessary.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER A look at how our current crises are caused by too much government, and how Ayn Rand's bold defense of free markets can help us change course. The rise of the Tea Party and the 2010 election results revealed that tens of millions of Americans are alarmed by Big Government, but skeptical that anything can or will be done to stop the growth of the state. In Free Market Revolution, the keepers of Ayn Rand's legacy argue that the answer lies in her pioneering philosophy of capitalism and self-interest –a philosophy that more and more people are turning to for answers. In the past few years, Rand's works have surged to new peaks of popularity, as politicians like Paul Ryan, media figures like John Stossel, and businessmen like John Mackey routinely name her as one of their chief influences. Here, Brook and Watkins explain how her ideas can solve a host of political and economic ills, including the debt crisis, inflation, overregulation, and the swelling welfare state. And most important, they show how Rand's philosophy can enable defenders of the free market to sieze the moral high ground in the fight to limit government. This is a fresh and urgent look at the ideas of one of the most controversial figures in modern history – ideas that may prove the only hope for the future.

John Médaille maintains that philosophers-beginning with the consummate dialectician Socrates who gives Euthyphro a thorough drubbing-have illegitimately stifled the special access that theologian-poets have to ultimate truths at the heart of all human experience. Thomas Storck objects: the power to see reality as it is, to discover principles and arrive at conclusions, is as natural to man as breathing and walking; after all, even Scripture says we have no excuse if we fail to recognize God in his works, if we fail to yield to the testimony of miracles and the evidence for revelation. But what is reason, after all? Are there even facts apart from judgments, judgments apart from interpretations, and interpretations apart from worldviews developed through the stories we learn and tell one another? Back and forth it goes, as Storck defends philosophy, objectivity, and Thomism, while Médaille seeks to expose their vulnerable flanks. In a world of sound bites and short attention spans, how rare is an amiable, penetrating, sustained dialogue between two thinkers of great intelligence and undoubted good will, who, though disagreeing about many things, are still drawn back, again and again, to the central mystery of Christ, supreme Logos and sacrificial Lamb?

There Must Be More Than This

As millennials we stand accused--of aimlessness, entitlement, indifference, lack of gratitude--merely for existing under the wrong conditions, for illustrating simply by that fact the wrongness of those conditions. This book offers an apologia for an entire generation. It is not so much a solution to our problems as an orientation allowing us to face them. It provides a way of understanding ourselves, leading us to see what our increasingly economic mode of being has lopped off and discarded. We have inherited a deformed anthropology, an inane status quo, for which we have been told we ought to be thankful. We need to rediscover meaning in a world that has become a matter of indifference to us. It will take work, it won't be easy, and it will have to start with our generation. "A provocative re-orientation to the spirit and outlook of millennials; a testimony of faith from a generation not supposed to have any."--NATHAN SCHNEIDER, journalist and author of Thank You, Anarchy: Notes from the Occupy Apocalypse "Daniel Schwindt is one of those very unusual 'young voices' whose writing calls up very old questions: Why is our freedom in fact a form of exile? Why has the very concept of adulthood become meaningless? Why have our schools become 'our mental cancer'? Both radical and mindful of the radical nature of tradition, these short essays set off fireworks that signal the debut of a remarkable young social critic."--ELIAS CRIM, founder and publisher, Solidarity Hall "Daniel Schwindt has demonstrated with incisive clarity and sobriety that a spiritual life is a real life. He does not flatter, cajole, or seduce the reader; neither does he treat him or her to the fruits of his subjective impressions. He knows that the world is hard, that time is short, that we have all been disinherited, but that there is nonetheless a clear way to proceed. Solid, relevant, perceptive, uncompromising, compassionate without sentimentality, not a word out of place."--CHARLES UPTON, author of The System of Antichrist: Truth and Falsehood in Postmodernism and the New Age "Daniel Schwindt in a very brief book has produced a very powerful message. With an economy of expression that is nearly aphoristic, he has constructed a work that simultaneously grabs our hearts and our intellects. His words penetrate the web of lies that largely comprises modern life, as in brief but eloquent prose he deconstructs many of the shibboleths of the modern world, thereby clearing a path to the heart of our predicament. And, having shown us how we got there, he then suggests the way out. I hope that every member of Daniel's generation will read this book. And every member of my own as well."--JOHN C. MÉDAILLE, author of Toward a Truly Free Market: A Distributist Perspective on the Role of Government, Taxes, Health Care, Deficits, and More "In There Must Be More Than This, Daniel Schwindt gives utterance to the previously unarticulated existential ennui that plagues the so-called 'millennial' generation. Like a true doctor of souls, he diagnoses the various spiritual diseases afflicting it: affluence and its accompanying spiritual desolation; disillusionment with the hollow reality of the 'American dream'; the failure of religious, cultural, and political traditions to live up to their promises of a truly authentic engagement with life; and the technological colonization of the human person. In short, Schwindt describes with penetrating insight the 'existential self-centeredness' characteristic of postmodern existence, which results in a 'verbal universe' void of meaning and significance. But he is not without hope. He proposes an alternative, calling us to deep engagement with the cosmological reality of all that is, and the spiritual renewal that accompanies it."--MICHAEL MARTIN, author of The Submerged Reality: Sophiology and the Turn to a Poetic Metaphysics
