The Prospects of American Industrial Recovery

The Prospects of American Industrial Recovery

John E. Ullmann examines the underlying causes of the impending American economic blight. Specifically, he identifies the arms race as preempting technical talent and capital resources to the degree that it impairs the rest of the economy. According to Ullmann, it is the confluence of related misunderstandings and rationalizations about military spending that have inhibited a proper response to current economic and technical challenges. He demonstrates that solutions lie only in concentrating on direct action and physical realities, on industrial redevelopment and technical needs, and on the broader issues of the nature of work and its organization. Through a discussion of individual industries and their problems, Ullmann sets forth a series of proposals for their recovery and renewed progress.

From Industry to Arms

The linkages between the government and the industrial economy that shape the direction of America's technological development are the focus of this work. DiFilippo analyzes this political economy both empirically and comparatively, and argues that an improvement in U.S. competitiveness, manufacturing, productivity, and the standard of living require a shift of technological resources from the military to the civilian sector. He examines such topics as conventional explanations of competitive decline and the industrial policies of Japan, West Germany, and France, and provides a practical alternative to confront many of the current economic problems.

An Ecosystem Approach to Economic Stabilization

An Ecosystem Approach to Economic Stabilization

The creation of economic institutions that can function well under substantial uncertainties -- Black Swans -- is analogous to the dilemmas confronting our hunter-gatherer forefathers in the face of large-scale ecological unpredictability. The ultimate solution was not the development of a super hunter-gatherer technology that could ride out repeated catastrophe, but rather the invention, in neolithic times, of culturally-adapted 'farmed' ecosystems constructed to maximize food yield and minimize risks of famine. Recent advances in evolutionary and ecosystem theory applied to economic structure and process may permit construction of both new economic theory and new tools for data analysis that can help in the design of more robust economic institutions. This may result in less frequent and less disruptive transitions, and enable the design of culturally-specific systems less affected by those that do occur. This unique and innovative book applies cutting-edge methods from cognitive science and evolutionary theory to the problem of the necessary stabilization of economic processes. At the core of this book is the establishment of a statistics-like toolbox for the study of empirical data that is consistent with generalized evolutionary approaches. This toolbox enables the construction of both new economic theories and methods of data analysis that can help in the design of more robust economic institutions. This in turn will result in less frequent and less disruptive Black Swans, and enable as well the design of culturally-specific systems less affected by those that do occur.

Collective Consciousness and Its Discontents

Collective Consciousness and Its Discontents

An earlier book by Rodrick Wallace entitled Consciousness: A Mathematical Treatment of the Global Neuronal Workspace Model, introduced a formal information-theoretic approach to individual consciousness. This latest book takes a more formal 'groupoid' perspective to its predecessor and generalizes the results presented in that earlier book. It applies a multiple-workspace version of Dr. Wallace’s earlier consciousness model to large-scale institutional cognition.
