The novel reads as capitalism versus the “Unimaginable Other” (Jarvis) of capitalism. By opposing these elements, a revelation fails to present itself at the end of the book which leaves the readers to make up their own truth about the story. However, I concede that after 9/11 and the Snowden affair, America’s mentality has changed towards the Internet and the government. It now seems like they are searching for negative elements rather than positive ones. Still, I believe the book can be read in the same way: that we need to find a way to live with technology in order to prevent losing control, if we have not
The dream conjured up by schooling is one which makes “futile promises of salvation to a poor to the technological age”. Illich thinks deschooling central to the adjustment in order to bring society to a more humane level. He suspects Marxists and others who promote the cause of social change but see no problem with schooling. For Illich, the mentality of schooling goes to the heart of the impoverished lives we lead and also analyzes the multiple and total roles of the teacher in this enclosed institution. The teacher has three roles: as a custodian, therapist, and a preacher.

Generally speaking, the history of economic analysis and policy discloses three major developments since Smith: (1) Microeconomic theorists have tried to fill in the details of Smith’s grand vision of how markets work. Part of this activity has been technical, aimed at giving greater precision to Smith’s vision, and part has attempted to develop areas that Smith failed to treat or to comprehend, including the development of the demand side of price analysis, the formulation of a theory of the economic forces determining the distribution of income, and the analysis of resource allocation in other than perfectly competitive
188.8.131.52 The Portfolio Theory and the Capital Asset Pricing Theory (CAPM) One of the most celebrated theories in financial economics is the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), a single-index asset pricing equilibrium model developed separately by Sharpe (1964), Lintner (1965) and Mossin (1966). CAPM has been very influential as it is widely used as a benchmark to measure the value of financial assets and capital budgeting projects as well as to assess fund managers‟ performance.

Rewarding students for satisfying grades is an atrocious idea because the student’s internal drive to succeed should drive the students to perform well in school.

To begin with, students should have the motivation to succeed from their internal drive to succeed and not for the money will be rewarded at the end. A student’s internal drive should push them to succeed so they can achieve an excellent job.
