A History of Wealth Distribution in
the United States (Volume 1)

The United States is the wealthiest country on the planet and this wealth that we all know is not a coincidence. The accumulation of capital and wealth is the evolution of the history of a whole country that commenced as a mere British colony in North America to become the most powerful and wealthiest nation in post-World War II. In order to understand why and how the United States became so wealthy, it is therefore necessary to comprehend how the distribution of wealth has taken place throughout its history. The undeniable fact is that American society is a socioeconomically unequal society, and the foundation of this socioeconomic inequality is capitalism.

This book subsequently argues that although the wealth has been unequally distributed because of the nature of the capitalist system, this same system has enabled the ordinary American citizen to significantly improve his living standard compared to that of other advanced economies, and it has enhanced its economic development by creating economic opportunities for immigrants to improve their lives. In other words, despite the shortcomings of the unequal distribution of wealth that we all know, this system has not always brought negative aspects to American society. It has also enabled the United States, as a free society, to promote the concept of private initiative, which is the cornerstone of individual freedom and the land of economic opportunity. This book, therefore, embarks on the history of the distribution of wealth in America by explaining the metamorphoses of the accumulation of capital throughout its economic, political, and social development.

Conspiracy & The Subject

Although there is a rise in Lacanian and Hegelian studies around the world, particularly with Slavoj Žižek at the forefront, there are few texts which offer a detailed understanding of one of the most dangerous and prevalent trends we see in modern politics – conspiracy theories.
Conspiracy and the Subject provides an intricate but accessible Lacanian psychoanalytic study that is woven together with a Hegelian philosophical framework. It is written in a readable style so that both veterans of Lacanian and Hegelian theory and a wider educated audience can understand. Beginning with a ground-zero outline of Lacan, interested new readers can feel comfortable this being their first text from the Lacanian field. This text aims to foster an urgent conversation on both the social and psychical implications if conspiracy theories continue to run rampant. By looking beyond the conspiracy theory itself, that is, looking at the individual or subject that finds enjoyment in professing it, the text shifts towards the broader relation a political economy structured on ever-increasing profit has with the rise of conspiracy theories. Tracing these implications, Coates concludes that the need to look for an alternative to an economy structured primarily on profit is dire.

What is meant by education? How does one become educated? Does it require attending college to get a piece of paper that asserts that you are educated?

On The Face Of It

Travel literature is naturally difficult owing to the simple fact that destinations are almost always more interesting and dreamy than the people writing about their experience going there. To that end, On the Face of It is meant to be as inspiring and insightful as famous titles in the travel genre by employing exactly, what I feel, are the ingredients that make travel such a uniquely special activity.

The addictive feeling of complete foreignness that makes up great travel comes about as each of the senses is pulled in various directions into areas of unfamiliarity. Just like this, On the Face of It explores the act of traveling, travelers as people, and the world at large by tugging the reader’s heart and mental faculties in different directions using combinations of information from great literature, scientific research, journalism, history, and a choice selection of personal anecdotes from many months of fulfilling travel around the world.

The premise is to use this broad variety of information to show how vitally important—not just travel— but travel at a high level can be for a fulfilling life. Separated into two parts, the first aims to explore why some people have the insatiable desire to travel and who they are, or might be, in our society, as well as the standout aspects of a traveler’s character and life experience. The second part looks at the world upon which the travelers take their journeys. It contains sections on culture, politics, war, colonialism, nature, time and place, religion, geography, and philosophy, and asks the questions “how does travel affect these,” or “how do these affect travel?

Millennial Economics

Let us take a position that life is a game, a game of actions defined by economic parameters. Now if we accept this perspective to hold true with how we observe market forces, then understanding the mechanics of these forces is necessary. The elevation in understanding of our economic reality, implies an elevation in individual consciousness, and thus that of the collective of individuals. The purpose of this manifesto is to structure the parameters by which humans can become a homoeconomicus; a social animal who understands the fundamental mechanics of economic truths by which they operate. Conscious evolution is needed for free market principle to dominate, allowing mankind to find and sustain a continuum of prosperity.

Notes From An Austro-Punk

An economist is only as useful as his model of the world, and his model is only as useful as its depiction of the world in which he acts.

Beyond governance, the examination delves into China's economic policies, highlighting how historical models, such as those from the Han or Qing dynasties, have influenced contemporary economic practices. Moreover, the role of Confucianism and other philosophical traditions in shaping Chinese values and social structures is explored, shedding light on their enduring impact.
The Little Red Book aims to address the fundamental question: "Why is China the way it is economically and politically." This inquiry delves into the enduring threads connecting China's past with its present, offering insights crucial for navigating diplomatic relations with this enduring and influential civilization. Through considering historical, cultural, and economic perspectives, this analysis provides a comprehensive view of China's development and its implications for the global stage.

Understanding The Credit-Based Economy

The United States of America is the wealthiest country in the world with a gross domestic product of more than $25 trillion, which is the highest in the world. This means that it produces more output than any other country. It is the country that produces the most the most billionaires thanks to its system of free enterprise.
Yet most Americans feel that the system has failed them as they believe that they are not reaping the profits of what they produced. This feeling of economic injustice is based on the belief that American capitalism is a system that privileges the few at the expense of everyone else. As a result, most Americans have turned to government as a rampart and solution to reduce wealth inequality when the expansion of wealth inequality in America is the consequence of decades of unsound monetary and fiscal policy that deteriorated the American economic system.
Thus, the objective of this book is to explain to the average citizen how the government’s fiscal policy and the monetary policy of the Federal Reserve have exacerbated wealth inequality and unfairly reinforced resentment towards capitalism.
