The Case for Discrimination
by Walter Block
Publisher: Ludwig von Mises Institute 2010
Number of pages: 514
Discrimination -- choosing one thing over another -- is an inevitable feature of the material world where scarcity of goods and time is the pervasive feature. There is no getting around it.

The goal of the book is to enable ordinary readers to understand that the economy we live in operates primarily to the advantage of those with a specific interest in profit. The benefit of the system for large numbers of Americans is recognized.
by Peter Barnes - Berrett-Koehler Publishers
Barnes' idea is that we need to use a 3rd institution to develop a better form a capitalism that takes into account natural resources that are used and not accounted for. This is needed, because government has failed to do a good job in this regard.
