Download Knowledge and Decisions ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB S cogent contribution to our understanding of the differences between the market process and the process of government In announcing the award the center acclaimed that the contribution to our understanding of the process of regulation alone would make the book important but in reemphasizing the diversity and efficiency that the market makes possible this work goes deeper and becomes even significant. Thomas Sowell s Knowledge and Decisions is just as important today as when it was written This book is dense and takes a bit of time to get through but it s worth it Sowell s main thesis is that decision making power has shifted to centralized bodies This has profound impacts on economics law and politics As power is concentrated there is less faith in the public and in mutually beneficial voluntary transactions Top down one size fits all solutions are much likely with increases in centralized power Local transactions in free markets are seen as chaotic and irrational when compared to articulated policies from above This has led to increased involvement by intellectuals in politics the need to articulate rational policies precipitates the need for them Sowell laments the popular belief that intellectuals live for ideas rather than live off of them He insists that we need to evaluate the incentive structure inherent in intellectual professions just as we evaluate the incentive structure for other positions He writes that we also need to do much the same for government employees There is no evidence that intellectuals or public employees operate under a different incentive structure than anyone else They are ultimately self interested as are all the rest of us The public expects too much of intellectuals and public employees to the public s own demise Sowell ends with some discussion on the United States and the intentions of the Founding Fathers which was a fitting ending to the book He believes that the Founding Fathers were realists about the human condition They understood that all of us including public employees are ultimately self interested The United States was designed to not allow ambition to override other portions of the government The French Revolution instead grew out of the belief that people could be changed if they only saw the light This is very much the same approach that a majority of intellectuals believe today Even if something is not favored by a large portion of the populace they will learn to like it because the almighty intellectuals have proclaimed it superior Sowell believes that this is a slippery slope that eventually leads to totalitarianism which is certainly plausible Government has intruded further and further on our lives since this book was written and a large portion of young voters want even government involvement in every part of our lives As usual Sowell weaves historical examples and logical deductions extremely well He is one of the best at looking at economics and history from a libertarian perspective and enforcing his points with diverse examples from all over the world at all points in history He continually emphasizes that we need to evaluate everything based on the incentives and constraints of the decision makers This is an economic principle that can be applied to politics law business and sociology Though it is simple this type of evaluation is shirked by most of the public We can judge judicial activism and the rapid growth of governmental agencies within this scope both grew from the incentive to wield power money and influence Though constitutional controls are meant to limit any part of the government from growing too powerful judicial activism has allowed for courts to escape many of the constraints facing them Much the same governmental agencies have consolidated legislative executive and judicial powers within one body contrary to the spirit of the Constitution This agencies now hire people use taxpayer money and wield power than they would without this consolidation of powers This is worth reading As I said in the first paragraph this may be even relevant today that it was when it was written Leftist intellectuals now wield greater influence over the public s opinion than they did even ten or twenty years ago The public need not trust them simply because they are experts Without empirical proof they are nothing than talking heads pushing an agenda

Thomas Sowell Ð 6 Download

Download Knowledge and Decisions ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB This reissue of Thomas Sowell's classic study of decision making which includes a preface by the author updates his seminal work in the context of The Vision of the Anointed Sowell one of America's most celebrated public intellectuals describes in concrete detail how knowledge is shared and disseminated throughout modern society He warns that society suffers from an ever widening gap between firsthan. If you can only read one book on knowledge and how it affects human decision making I would highly recommend Knowledge and Decisions It is an updated expansion of Friedrich Hayek s famous paper On the Use of Knowledge in Society most of the extra material being relevant examples in the fields of economics history law and politics There is a wealth of facts and data here and conclusions drawn from those facts will be a challenge to accepted ideologies on the left and the right This book will force you to think carefully about how the world works and how certain beliefs about this world can lead to conseuences of which nobody could have conceived On the other hand while the writing style is uite readable and to the point it can also be a bit dry My progress was very slow mostly because it took a lot of energy to digest all the facts and arguments in this very dense though relatively short book many other books covering the topics this book addresses are much longer and much boring It is definitely something to be taken carefully with a heavy helping of deep thinking A multi grain high fiber diet for your brain
