This book makes no mistake of assuming there is a such thing as a “normal” family. All families are unique and put together in a different way. There are people you are born related to, then there are those chosen without you, and lastly, the people you pick! Family members are like a team. They all come together, brining their talents and love, to help you win in life. To appreciate your family, and know they appreciate you, get into this book. We talk about parents, siblings, friends, teachers, and even “frienemies!” Never heard about frienemies? Let’s get started! Don’t skip this book, get it, read it, pass The Lesson, and remember to get involved in The Lesson Coaching series!
Lexi Morris arrives late to a Human Trafficking awareness seminar at her job and immediately distracts Luke Miller, the presenter, an FBI Special Agent on the Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force/Coalition in central Pennsylvania. Their eyes meet and an instant connection occurs. After working late Lexi walks to her car in a dimly lit parking lot while texting plans for a fun weekend with friends but her weekend comes to a crashing halt when she´s abducted with the intentions of being sold into sex slavery. Luke, at his cabin in the woods for the weekend, observes suspicious activity at his late uncle´s cabin. When he investigates, he finds Lexi held captive and rescues her but not before engaging in a shootout with traffickers. He sets off on foot in a snowstorm, Lexi in tow, seeking the safety of his own cabin with her kidnappers in hot pursuit. But is it simply coincidence when Lexi finds money, lots of money, in his jacket pocket? Is Luke her buyer and not her liberator? What will it take for her to trust him? Can he really protect her from a life of sex slavery?
A masterful introduction to the key ideas behind the successes?and failures?of free-market economicsSince 1946, Henry Hazlitt?s bestselling Economics in One Lesson has popularized the belief that economics can be boiled down to one simple lesson: market prices represent the true cost of everything. But one-lesson economics tells only half the story. It can explain why markets often work so well, but it can?t explain why they often fail so badly?or what we should do when they stumble. As Nobel Prize?winning economist Paul Samuelson quipped, ?When someone preaches ?Economics in one lesson,? I advise: Go back for the second lesson.? In Economics in Two Lessons, John Quiggin teaches both lessons, offering a masterful introduction to the key ideas behind the successes?and failures?of free markets.Economics in Two Lessons explains why market prices often fail to reflect the full cost of our choices to society as a whole. For example, every time we drive a car, fly in a plane, or flick a light switch, we contribute to global warming. But, in the absence of a price on carbon emissions, the costs of our actions are borne by everyone else. In such cases, government action is needed to achieve better outcomes.Two-lesson economics means giving up the dogmatism of laissez-faire as well as the reflexive assumption that any economic problem can be solved by government action, since the right answer often involves a mixture of market forces and government policy. But the payoff is huge: understanding how markets actually work?and what to do when they don?t.Brilliantly accessible, Economics in Two Lessons unlocks the essential issues at the heart of any economic question.
