The modern family unit has been affected by the ongoing crisis. Stable marriages are on the decline, as is a sense of community with friends and neighbors. These factors impact our most precious resource - children- as more and more children grow up without a stable household to give them basic guidance, in a society that ridicules "old-fashioned" values and morality. In this book, Ms.Yi provides fundamental support for parents to educate their children about what is right or wrong, worthy or unworthy, important or unnecessary, in order to provide a basis for sound ethics and judgment in adulthood. Ms.Yi discusses generational changes in family structure, roles, and responsibilities and the ways in which these shifts can affect core values. This Guide's thorough and thought-provoking text gives parents and caregivers the opportunity to interact and reflect on fundamental aspects of their role in educating children and preparing them for life, as well as providing tools and a framework of healthy values. Preserving the family unit gives room to social improvement. The main purpose of Ms. Yi s Guide is setting a new path for the generations to follow.

From the INTRODUCTION.
The importance of our subject cannot be over-estimated.
Value has been called the corner-stone of economics, the fundamental idea, the dominant category of political economy, and, unless it be definitely and correctly determined, that science in its entirety is like a house built upon quicksand; it has no solid, abiding foundations.
Until the commerce of mankind,-until the product of industry can be weighed and balanced in the scales of justice, society in its true sense is impossible, and must inevitably become "an organized institution for picking pockets," such as it is, to a great extent, to-day.
The lack of equity and justice in the processes of production and distribution so painfully manifest at the present time, and so fruitful in evil, has its source in this one fact more than any other,-that there is no just standard measure or unit of value; that which is used as such being simply a disturber of values and a tool of exploitation and injustice through monopoly.
The wide interest manifested in our subject is a remarkable fact of current literature, hardly a paper or a magazine with any educational pretensions being void of some reference to value or to its intimate relations.
The Loco-foco party of 1836, which protested against paper and bank-notes, has split into bimetallists and mono-metallists, and the war of the standards rages from Dan to Beersheba, disintegrating political parties and becoming the bete noir of political saints and sinners.
Honesty is inscribed on both banners, while with intelligence both banners would vanish from the field.
One writer, pleading for a monopolized gold standard, under which rascality is a fine art, is so enthused with the moral aspect (to him) of his theme of monetary aggrandizement, that he makes a national application of the faith that is in him, asking, "Are we a nation of rascals?"
This Armageddon of ignorance continues as though some Joshua of political economy had halted the sun in its celestial course so that the slaughter of words might continue.
The economists fight upon questions to decide which value must be determined. One seeks his unit or standard of value in gold, the other in silver, and both, being blind leaders of the blind, fall into a pit.
The economists talk of value as vaguely as the red Indian talks of the Great Spirit. They compare values by means of a shifting point of comparison (worse than none); they measure values with an elastic thread; they confound utility and value; they differentiate price and value; they, in one breath, proclaim the ideality of value, its elusiveness and mentality; while, in the next breath, they talk of so many grains of this or that material substance as a standard of the ideal.


Determining The Economic Value Of Water

RRP $546.99

Water provides benefits as a commodity for agriculture, industry, and households, and as a public good such as fisheries habitat, water quality and recreational use. To aid in cost-benefit analysis under conditions where market determined price signals are usually unavailable, economists have developed a range of alternative valuation methods for measuring economic benefits.

This volume provides the most comprehensive exposition to-date of the application of economic valuation methods to proposed water resources investments and policies. It provides a conceptual framework for valuation of both commodity and public good uses of water, addressing non-market valuation techniques appropriate to measuring public benefits - including water quality improvement, recreation, and fish habitat enhancement. The book describes the various measurement methods, illustrates how they are applied in practice, and discusses their strengths, limitations, and appropriate roles.

In this second edition, all chapters have been thoroughly updated, and in particular the coverage of water markets and valuation of ecosystem services from water has been expanded. Robert Young, author of the 2005 edition, has been joined for this new edition by John Loomis, who brings additional expertise on ecosystem services and the environmental economics of water for recreational and other public good uses of water.
