  "In 1890 American exports to China amounted to $3M, which was 0.3% of total US exports worldwide. A decade later Americans were exporting $15M worth of goods to China, which still amounted to only 1.1% of total exports. Some American entrepreneurs dreamed of selling 400M cotton shirts to 400M Chinese consumers, as well as to the Japanese and Koreans." --- Robert Kagan 2007 _Dangerous Nation: America's Foreign Policy from Its Earliest Days to the Dawn of the 20th Century_ pp329-330

  "The mystery of human personality remains. And in any case -- which means in every case -- explanations by means of a single cause, hidden, startling, 'scientific', is to be distrusted, if not on the face of it disallowed. The concatenation of acts, motives, and results can only be understood and described by the intuitive skill of the historian as artist. He will see [any historical figure] as doer." --- Jacques Barzun & Henry F. Graff 1957, 1970, 1992 _The Modern Researcher_ pg165

  "the Arab states have an unusually large number of skilled and educated individuals, often with advanced degrees, who are currently unemployed. Second, the populations of the Arab states include groups famous the world over for their 'entrepreneurialism'. As [Fareed Zakaria] notes, 'The Palestinians, tragically, have long been the region's best merchants and would probably respond fastest to new economic opportunities if they could put the intifada behind them.' Finally, again unlike most 'developing' countries, the Arab states generally do not face the 'problem' of an internal market-dominant de-stabilizing at the national level. Thus, with certain optimistic assumptions, markets can be a key to long-term Middle Eastern reform, both economically and politically." --- Amy Chua 2003, 2004 _World on Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability_ pp 225-226

  "While it's true that the New Deal's 'soak the rich' taxes yielded far less revenue than the high rates would suggest -- only about 5% of Americans paid the federal income tax, for instance -- these taxes surely discouraged employers from making investments. As E.I. du Pont de Nemours president Lammont du Pont testified before a senate hearing: 'If an investment proves successful, most of the profit goes to the government. If unsuccessful, the individual bears all the loss; the investor hesitates to wager several to one on a venture attended with such risk.' These New Deal taxes came on top of increasing state taxes during the Great Depression." --- Jim Powell 2003 _FDR's Folly_ pp83-84 (citing Mark H. Leff 1984 _The Limits of Symbolic Reform: The New Deal and Taxation 1933-1939_ pg4)

"Thus saith the Lord GOD: Let it suffice you, O princes of Israel; remove violence and spoil, and execute justice and righteousness; take away your exactions from My people, saith the Lord GOD. Ye shall have just balances, and a just ephah..." --- Ezekiel/ יחזקאל/ Yechezqal 45:9-
"Now this is the mitzvoth, the statutes, and the ordinances, which HaShem your God commanded (Moshah/Moses/Musa) to teach you, that you might comply-with/execute/carry-out/fulfill/do them in the land to which you go to possess... Hear, oh Israel; HaShem our God, HaShem is unique. And you must love HaShem your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words, which I command you this day, must be in your heart; and you must teach them diligently to your children, and must talk about them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the path, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you must bind them like a sign on your hand (so you will often see them), and as a sign on your fore-head between your eyes (so others with you will often see them). And you must write them on the door-posts of your house, and on your gates (so those who enter or pass by will see them)." --- Deuteronomy/ דברים/ deberim/debrim/words 5-6

  "But engineering is not simply about fixing things. When an engineer's automobile develops problems, he, like most other people, will take it to be [repaired, adjusted, or maintained] by an experienced mechanic. Even if he believes that he has diagnosed what is causing the trouble, he is not likely to have the proper tools, parts, or know-how to reach and replace what needs doing. As odd as it might seem that someone who can design an automobile might not be able to fix one, that is the reality of it... There are mental skills and there are physical skills, and while they are usually present in some combination in engineers and mechanics alike, they do not necessarily transfer from one to the other." --- Henry Petroski 2010 _The Essential Engineer: Why Science Alone Will Not Solve Our Global Problems_ pg37

  "the greeks knew it as the La Tene period. Xenophon described the division of labour in his day: 'Here a man lives only from sewing the shoes, there another only from cutting them... The simpler the process, the more successful it is.' This must also have been understood and practised by the Celts. They certainly lacked neither technical skills nor a sense of reality. This was even appreciated on the Mediterranean. The Celtic invention of the barrel replaced the wine-jug north of the Alps. Their 2- and 4-wheeled chariots were among the most perfect and elegant constructed at the time, and the utensils they manufactured looked so alike throughout the great area between the Carpathians and the Atllantic that we have to conclude that there must have been great factories in the oppida working to much the same specifications for axes, pots, hammers and pick-axes." --- Gerhard Herm 1975, 1976 _The Celts_ pg136

  "The bill that emerged from the hearings had 3 major provisions.     First, the government would collect a pay-roll tax on the first $3K of income, which would start at 2% (half paid directly by the employer but really by the employee [out of the value he produced for the employer]), rising to 6% in 1948...     Exempted from having to participate and pay [Socialist Insecurity] taxes were federal government employees, state government employees, agricultural workers, domestic workers, and perhaps employees of non-profit organizations.     [Socialist Insecurity] tax revenue was intended to be enough to cover the benefits of currrent retirees.     [Socialist Insecurity] tax revenue not needed for current retirees would go into an Old Age Reserve Account where it would be invested in US government bonds.     Second, beginning 1942-01-01, individuals who were 65 and had quit work could collect monthly benefit payments.     Consequently, [Socialist Insecurity] wouldn't do any good for elderly poor people during the Great Depression.     The aim was to build up the Old Age Reserve Account before the government started issuing benefit checks...     one of the ulterior purposes of the [Socialist Insecurity] Act was to get older people out of the work-force and create openings for younger people who were unemployed." --- Jim Powell 2003 _FDR's Folly_ pp182-183 (citing Carolyn L. Weaver 1982 _The Crisis in Social Security: Economic and Political Origins_ pg79)
