In defense of selfishness : why the code of self-sacrifice is unjust and destructive by Peter Schwartz( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and Russian and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is one central, non-controversial idea we're taught about morality--that self-sacrifice is a virtue. What if it's wrong? From childhood, we are told that serving the needs of others, rather than our own, is the essence of morality and the way to achieve social harmony. To be ethical--it is believed--is to be altruistic. Here, Peter Schwartz questions this notion. In Defense of Selfishness shows that what altruism demands is not that you respect the rights of your neighbor and refrain from acting like Attila the Hun, but rather that you subordinate yourself to others. Altruism entails not benevolence and cooperation, but servitude. Schwartz asks why the fact that someone needs your money makes him entitled to it, while the fact that you've earned it, doesn't. Schwartz rejects sacrifice, under which one person's gain comes at the price of another's loss. Instead, he proposes an alternative to altruism, whereby people deal with one another not by sacrificing but by offering value for value, to mutual benefit, and by refusing to seek the unearned. Schwartz proposes a world, based on Ayn Rand's ethics of rational self-interest, under which individuals live honest, self-respecting, productive lives. Using real-life examples, In Defense of Selfishness illustrates the iniquity of requiring one man to serve the needs of another, challenging readers to question the standard by which they decide that something is morally right or wrong"--
Return of the primitive : the anti-industrial revolution by Ayn Rand( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The late 1960s saw the first widespread expression, in overt form, of the creed of anti-industrialism in America. The original edition of this book was published as a response - as an analysis and refutation of that deadly phenomenon. Among noted thinkers of the day, Ayn Rand alone stood firm against the tide of Kantian nihilism and in support of reason, individualism, and laissez-faire capitalism - the philosophic ideals that are the foundation of American achievement and progress. Three decades later, despite a seemingly different sociopolitical climate, the intellectual essence of the "New Left" endures. Its continued influence - manifested in such ideologies as environmentalism and multiculturalism - renders Rand's observations and warnings as relevant, and as urgently needed, as when they were first written. In this newly revised and expanded volume, Peter Schwartz supplements Rand's work by shedding new light on the dangerous legacy of the New Left - a legacy that seeks to return mankind to the era of primitivism
Alternative futures for environmental policy planning, 1975-2000 by Duane Elgin( Book )

9 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report explores a range of alternative futures covering the next 25 years (1975-2000). These concentrate on the United States, but place this nation's future experience in a world context. It is believed that by exploring the uncertainty of the near future and placing boundaries on it, environmental policy planners will be provided with an important tool for anticipating issues and gauging the utility of policies designed to meet them. The approach to the construction of alternative futures entails the projection of certain key trends over the next 25 years and estimating the social, economic, and political consequences of a varying combination of their impacts. This report contains the scenarios of the alternative futures, the policy conclusions drawn therefrom, and recommendations for the continuing use of the alternative futures method in the Environmental Protection Agency planning process.

As it emerges from centuries of social, military, and political strife, China--which represents one fifth of the world's population and its third largest economy--is poised to play a major role in global business. But what will that role be? In this book, two experts, who have created business scenarios for some of the world's largest organizations--including Royal Dutch/Shell, AT & T, IBM, and Motorola--present three very informed versions of how China's future may unfold in the coming years and what it means to the rest of the world. These scenarios provide a foundation on which today's companies can build business strategies for years to come.--Publisher description
