GOOD SOCIETY DOGGEREL Stephen L. Elkin The elephant goes marching by The stumbling beast of society We swing our shovels to its steps In the shadow of its massive rear We are analysts and we clean up But we falter, our work never ends Why the plop, plop of society's beat? Why the stench of the beast's great bowels? Surely there is more We promised so much Maybe we need a new beast Please submit your poems, short stories, and other creative contributions for a good society to email@example.com. Notice of Publication--November 2008 UNJUST DESERTS: How the Rich Are Taking Our Common Inheritance and Why We Should Take It Back By Gar Alperovitz and Lew Daly Presenting a bold new theory of distributive justice for the knowledge economy. "The viewpoint presented in this important and provocative book by Alperovitz and Daly should alter the current public discourse on income distribution. Present incomes are largely derived from past accumulations of knowledge, the common property of mankind, so that there is no justification for large income differences. They show how this position has many precedents among leading thinkers of the past and present and is thoroughly grounded in the evidence.
