The economics of physiocracy; essays and translations by Ronald L Meek( )

"This book offers a detailed strategic planning methodology that nonprofits can use to get the best results for their fund-raising dollars. Wesley Lindahl shows how nonprofit organizations--including health care providers, colleges and universities, and others--can optimize gift income by strategically allocating fund-raising resources." "Lindahl explains how to analyze such programs as major gifts, planned giving, annual campaigns, direct mail appeals, and phone-a-thons, and distribute resources among them most effectively. Drawing on a specific example of how the methodology has been used at Northwestern University, he describes each step in developing a strategic plan, from initiating the planning process to monitoring its results. And he explains how a range of institutions--from small groups using just two or three fund-raising techniques to large institutions with a wide array of programs--can adapt and utilize this strategic planning method." "Lindahl summarizes the planning process in four major steps--mission strategy, budget, and control--and enumerates the benefits of using this method. He describes how to set up a steering committee and schedule the necessary planning sessions throughout the fiscal year. He explains how to interpret past results, survey the current economic and regulatory climate, and assess the public image of the organization--and how to use this information in planning fund-raising efforts. He specifies how electronic spreadsheets and special software can be used to determine the optimal allocation of resources, shows how to apply this analysis in a usable strategy, and discusses the strategic advantages of emphasizing long-term development programs."--BOOK JACKET
Matrices and society by Ian Bradley( )

19 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and held by 1,269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Matrices offer some of the most powerful techniques in modem mathematics. In the social sciences they provide fresh insights into an astonishing variety of topics. Dominance matrices can show how power struggles in offices or committees develop; Markov chains predict how fast news or gossip will spread in a village; permutation matrices illuminate kinship structures in tribal societies. All these invaluable techniques and many more are explained clearly and simply in this wide-ranging book. Originally published in 1986. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-o
Lectures on jurisprudence by Adam Smith( Book )

61 editions published between 1977 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smith's Lectures on Jurisprudence, originally delivered at the University of Glasgow in 1762-1763, present his "theory of the rules by which civil government ought to be directed." The chief purpose of government, according to Smith, is to preserve justice; and "the object of justice is security from injury." The state must protect the individual's right to his person, property, reputation, and social relations. Building on his Theory of Moral Sentiments, Smith argues that the state must act as an impartial spectator, judging when an individual has been injured. The state must then design and apply civil and criminal laws to prevent further injuries and punish transgressors. Laws are also the means by which the state promotes public prosperity. Thus, regulations concerning trade, commerce, and production must be crafted so as to encourage rather than interfere with our productive capacities

Social science and the ignoble savage by Ronald L Meek( Book )

30 editions published between 1976 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1976 book is concerned with the emergence, in the latter half of the eighteenth century, of a new theory of socio-economic development, based on the idea that the key factor in the developmental process was the way in which men made their living. Professor Meek traces the prehistory of the four stages theory, from its emergence with French and Scottish Enlightenment thinkers to its modification by critics and revisionists. He argues the theory was shaped by literature about savage societies, especially American Indian. It is well known

Turgot on progress, sociology and economics: A philosophical review of the successive advances of the human mind, On universal history [and] Reflections On the formation and the distribution of wealth by Anne-Robert-Jacques, baron de l'Aulne Turgot( Book )

25 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A.R.J. Turgot (1727-81), one of the greatest thinkers of the century of the Enlightenment, is known to political historians as a pioneer of the doctrine of universal progress, which he first put forward when a student at the Sorbonne in a lecture on The Successive Advances of the Human Mind. He is also well known to economists as the author of Reflections on the Formation and the Distribution of Wealth, in which he anticipated - and in some respects surpassed - the theoretical system of classical political economy. In this volume, translations of these two works are printed together with a lesser-known work entitled On Universal History, which should be of great interest to sociologists. Professor Meek has prefaced his own translations of the three texts with an introduction in which he analyses the interesting interrelationship between Turgot's political, economic and sociological theories
