In Two Lucky People, Rose and Milton Friedman provide a memorable and lively account of their lives, the people they knew, and the work they shared. Their involvement with world leaders and many of this century's most important public policy issues moves their memoir beyond the merely personal and makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the history of twentieth-century ideas. "The Friedmans come across as the last Enlightenment thinkers in a post-modern world. . . . This is a book that restores your faith in reasoned discourse. . . . There really are people who believe in scholarly exchange as a way to discover truth."—David Brooks, New York Times Book Review "The Friedmans are a feisty couple, who clearly delight in their lives and each other. And shining through their reticence, and their conservatism, is a decency that even liberals will recognize."—Milton and Judith Viorst, Washington Post Book World "This engaging book recounts the life and contributions of one of America's most influential writers and economists in the second half of the twentieth century. And her husband's no slouch either. . . . An indispensable guide through the evolution of economic thought."—Stephen Moore, National Review "A thought-provoking book and one rich in history, the personal history of the Friedmans . . . and the cultural and political history of our country."—Steve Huntley, Chicago Sun-Times Books "[Two Lucky People] is almost like a letter from a couple of old friends—a couple of old friends who had a long, compelling intellectual journey, came to know some of the great world leaders of this century, and had 60 years of happy, supportive marriage."—N. Gregory Mankiw, Fortune "A rich autobiographical and historical panorama."—William P. Kucewicz, Wall Street Journal

Most of us are somewhere between these two extremities. We may never really know why, or whether there is something to be done. There is! That's why this book was written.

Eric comes out of the closet to tell about his gay life, Bob gives us an insight into the life of a Moonie, the surgeon general of the United States receives her walking papers from the president, childhood memories of nonsensical rhymes, neighborhood stories, a little gossip, and a few smoke dreams are but a few of the memories included.

A bold indictment of some of our most accepted mainstream economic theories—why they’re wrong, and how they’ve been harming America and the world. Budget deficits are bad. A strong dollar is good. Controlling inflation is paramount. Pay reflects greater worker skills. A deregulated free market is fair and effective. Theories like these have become mantras among American economists both liberal and conservative over recent decades. Validated originally by patron saints like Milton Friedman, they’ve assumed the status of self-evident truths across much of the mainstream. Jeff Madrick, former columnist for The New York Times and Harper’s, argues compellingly that a reconsideration is long overdue. Since the financial turmoil of the 1970s made stagnating wages and relatively high unemployment the norm, Madrick argues, many leading economists have retrenched to the classical (and outdated) bulwarks of theory, drawing their ideas more from purist principles than from the real-world behavior of governments and markets—while, ironically, deeply affecting those governments and markets by their counsel. Madrick atomizes seven of the greatest false idols of modern economic theory, illustrating how these ideas have been damaging markets, infrastructure, and individual livelihoods for years, causing hundreds of billions of dollars of wasted investment, financial crisis after financial crisis, poor and unequal public education, primitive public transportation, gross inequality of income and wealth and stagnating wages, and uncontrolled military spending. Using the Great Recession as his foremost case study, Madrick shows how the decisions America should have made before, during, and after the financial crisis were suppressed by wrongheaded but popular theory, and how the consequences are still disadvantaging working America and undermining the foundations of global commerce. Madrick spares no sinners as he reveals how the “Friedman doctrine” has undermined the meaning of citizenship and community, how the “Great Moderation” became a great jobs emergency, and how economists were so concerned with getting the incentives right for Wall Street that they got financial regulation all wrong. He in turn examines the too-often-marginalized good ideas of modern economics and convincingly argues just how beneficial they could be—if they can gain traction among policy makers. Trenchant, sweeping, and empirical, Seven Bad Ideas resoundingly disrupts the status quo of modern economic theory. From the Hardcover edition.

As a high school history teacher for the past 25 years, I have collected and read hundreds of books pertaining to my subjects taught. On the completion of each book, I would carefully take notes on the most interesting events, quotes, or interpretations that I felt would enhance instruction for my students. After filling numerous notepads of information on over 800 books, I contemplated a project of sharing my most interesting findings. The result of this twenty plus year project is this book. This book is divided into 16 chapters based on the various topics presented. Some chapters contain a small amount of entries such as Nicknames, Espionage, or Labor while chapters on the Presidents or quotes will fill over thirty pages. The first chapter puts emphasis on the role my home state of Alabama has played on the national scene. One chapter is entitled Miscellaneous – Odds and Ends due to the subject matter not fitting into any other classification.

Milton Friedman and George J. Stigler shaped economics as we know it today – their Chicago School laid the groundwork for much of the neoclassical tradition in economic analysis. This book brings together a collection of letters from these two Noble laureates from the post-war years, containing new information about their personal and professional relationships, and also illuminating the development of ideas which are now fundamental to economic theory. The book, expertly edited by Dan and Claire Hammond, contains an introductory chapter, chronologies for Friedman and Stigler, and transcripts of sixty eight letters written from 1945 to 1957 along with enclosures.

In Mazel Tov, celebrity journalist Jill Rappaport and photographer Linda Solomon offer an intimate glimpse of the bar or bat mitzvahs of some of the most talented people in entertainment, politics and business. This remarkable book brings together stories and never-before-seen family photos of a variety of public figures, as they look back on their thirteen-year-old selves and reminisce about the celebration that marked their transition into adulthood. The wonderfully candid interviews in Mazel Tov document deeply poignant, and often hilariously awkward, moments in these very public lives. Interviewees include Jeremy Piven, Senator Joseph Lieberman, Marlee Matlin, Richard Dreyfuss, Ronald Perelman, Howie Mandel, Gene Shalit, Harvey Fierstein, Judy Gold, Larry King, Donny Deutsch, Michael Kors, Charles Grodin, Josh and Andy Bernstein, and many others. Their experiences run the gamut: Kirk Douglas decided to be bar mitzvahed twice, while others, like Noah Wyle, always wanted one but never had the chance. There are stories of bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, confirmations, and the only documented "bark" mitzvah, held in honor of two beloved pets. Though the stories vary greatly in their detail, they all express a common appreciation for values and traditions that have been passed down through the generations. Illustrated with photos pulled from family albums as well as contemporary portraits, Mazel Tov is an appealing tribute to the enduring bonds of faith and family.

In einer sehr nahen Zukunft — nächsten Dienstag, wer weiß? — steht ein reizüberflutetes, konsumversessenes, analphabetisches Amerika vor dem Zusammenbruch. Aber sage das niemand dem russischstämmigen Hausmeistersohn Lenny Abramov, stolzem Autor des vermutlich letzten Tagebuchs und weniger stolzem Besitzer einer kahlen Stelle auf dem Kopf. Obwohl er in einem Unternehmen arbeitet, das der reichen Klientel Unsterblichkeit verspricht, pirscht sich der Tod an diesen 39-jährigen Cholesterinhappen gemessenen Schritts heran. Warum auch nicht? Lenny ist aus einem anderen Jahrhundert — liebt Bücher, auch wenn viele seiner Freunde glauben, dass sie «stinken». Aber noch mehr als Bücher liebt er Eunice Park, eine unwahrscheinlich süße und unwahrscheinlich abgebrühte 24-jährige koreanischstämmige Frau, die im Hauptfach Images und im Nebenfach Selbstsicherheit studiert hat und ihm in Rom in die Arme läuft. Sofort zeigt sie ihm, wie man effektiver die Zähne putzt, geht mit ihm nicht entflammbare Baumwollkleidung kaufen. Amerika hingegen ist weniger flammenresistent als Lennys neue Ausstaffierung. Das Land steckt in einer Kreditkrise und ist bei den Chinesen hochverschuldet, Unruhen brechen im New Yorker Central Park aus, Panzer der Nationalgarde stehen an jeder Ecke. Unbeirrt will Lenny seine wankelmütige Geliebte davon überzeugen, dass es sich in einer Zeit ohne Normen und Stabilität, in einer Welt, in der man «Attraktivität» und «Nachhaltigkeit» seines Gegenübers per Mausklick abfragen kann, in einer Gesellschaft, in der die Betuchten womöglich ewig leben, die Armen hingegen zu früh sterben werden, trotzdem lohnt, ein Mensch zu sein. Diese superromantische, superkomische und auch supertraurige Liebesgeschichte vor dem Hintergrund einer Zivilisation am Abgrund ist eine Achterbahnfahrt durch ein Morgen, das schon heute deutlich sichtbar ist, inklusive sprachlicher Überschläge, eines steilkurvig dahinschießenden Plots und ganz ohne Phantasiebremse. Gary Shteyngart, in Amerika längst Kult- und Bestsellerautor, übertrifft mit dieser Gänsehaut-Satire alles, was die an exzentrischen Verrücktheiten reiche US-Literatur bisher hervorgebracht hat.

When one of her recipes calls for EVOO, cooks knowingly reach for the extra-virgin olive oil. And when she declares a dish Yum-O, those who have tried her dishes can nod in agreement. Rachael Ray grew up surrounded by great cooks in restaurants, so cooking was a natural and integral part of her life. She first began cooking at home with her mother, moved on to her own cooking demonstrations at local food markets, and finally ended up making successful cooking shows on television. But how did an untrained cook growing up in small-town upstate New York go on to become one of the Food Networks biggest stars? And perhaps most intriguingly, what role has she played in Americas ongoing food revolution? "Rachael Ray" tells the story of a woman who has made a career of encouraging others to cook, eat, and love food as much as she does. From her catalog of cookbooks to line of cookware, Ray has become a powerful force in food education.
