5.0 out of 5 stars A Call for Reason, 25 May 2012
This book shows how "state of the art" macroeconomics could provide a solution for the present crisis if it hadn't been forcibly replaced in academia by a "dark age" of quasi-religious, elite-serving, archaic macroeconomic speech, peddled by economists and ideologues who purposely forgot the lessons of the Great Depression. This backlash against Keynesianism deprived America and Europe of the tools we need to fight this recession.

Androv 32 Watt Screw Ioniser Full Spectrum Bulb by Androv
1.0 out of 5 stars Very unreliable, 19 April 2011
I can't say I'm disappointed: I had sufficient warning from other reviewers. This bulb went "buzz" and died after a few weeks very occasional use, which can't have totalled more than half a dozen hours. I still need a bright, full-spectrum bulb, but if the next one from Androv doesn't much more reliable I'll look for another purveyor.

3.0 out of 5 stars No bare feet, alas!, 2 Jan 2011
Always on the lookout for "barefoot slavegirl" erotica, and bored by John Norman's ranting, repetitive style, I am always happy to find something that contains, like Felix Baron's "The Persian Girl", even a few elements of the genre. I bought "Dominant" because it is by the same author, but I found nothing of what I was looking for.

Why doesn't Nexus add a "barefoot slavegirl" symbol to its contents set - which is, by the way, a very good idea?
