A civil economy, transforming the market in the twenty-first century

Creator: Severyn Ten Haut Bruyn | Political Science - 2000-04-20

The NAD determined that Oreck's demonstration was an inaccurate representation of cleaning superiority. The Hoover Company challenged the accuracy of Oreck's broadcast and print advertising and its product demonstration.

About this book
A civil society is one in which a democratic government and a market economy operate together. The idea of the civil economy--encompassing a democratic government and a market economy--presumes that people can solve social problems within the market itself. This book explores the relationship between the two, examining the civil underpinnings of capitalism and investigating the way a civil economy evolves in history and is developed for the future by careful planning.Severyn T. Bruyn describes how people in three sectors--government, business, and the Third Sector (nonprofits and civil groups)--can develop an accountable, self-regulating, profitable, humane, and competitive system of markets that could be described as a civil economy. He examines how government officials can organize markets to reduce government costs; how local leaders deal with global corporations that would unfairly exploit their community resources; and how employees can become coparticipants in the development of human values in markets.A Civil Economy is oriented to interdiciplinary studies of the economy, assisting scholars in diverse fields, such as business management, sociology, political science, and economics, in developing a common language to examine civic problems in the marketplace.As an undergraduate text, it evokes a mode of thought about the development of a self-accountable system of markets. Students learn to understand how the market economy becomes socially accountable and self-reliant, while remaining productive, competitive, and profitable.Sveryn T. Bruyn is Professor of Sociology, Boston College.

    I Like this Vacuum

    I don't understand why this vac doesn't get more attention here on Amazon. I kept dismissing it because there was very little info and the one star review. It was three times the price of the Eureka 71B that I was considering as my top choice.After some availability problems for the 71B I came to realize I didn't really want or need the roller brush on my quick use hand held vac. We have a lot of long hair in our family and I would be always cutting it out of the roller brush, like I have to do with our large main carpet vac.I reconsidered my price range and looked at the Hoover Porta Power and the Oreck XL Pro that I am reviewing here... 4/5 Barkingmad (Colorado (wild west) USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    This vacuum sucks but in a good way. :)

    0 5/5 Dr. Si - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I have 2 Orecks at my house and wanted a small canister vacuum for my second home. In spite of the fact that there was only one review and it was 1/5 I purchased this unit and am happy. The flexible tube is 24 inches long and extends to 32 inches and the extension tube is 19 inches but extends to 30 inches so that's a full 5 feet of reach, and the unit is hanging from your shoulder at waist height. In case you don't figure it out there is a button on the tube to allow the extension to open to full-length. I'm over 6 feet tall and can use the crevice tool on the floor with no problems and without leaning over. It would be nice if it had come with a few replacement bags but not a deal breaker.Oreck Xl® Pro 5 Compact Canister Vacuum 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 3, 2011

    Broke within a week of use, Oreck has been unresponsive

    0 1/5 jls - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) A week after I purchased this item, the extender piece cracked. I contacted Oreck via phone as per the warranty and was told to fax the receipt and explanation to them complete with my phone and mail address. 2 1/2 months later I still have not received a response from my fax although I was told over the phone they would ship a replacement part to me immediately upon receiving the receipt. The vacuum works great otherwise but mine is now fixed up with duct tape. I am VERY VERY disappointed in Oreck customer service and I would hesitate to purchase another Oreck product in the future. NOTE: this is not a reflection on the distributor of the product since the vacuum arrived on time and in excellent condition. The problem lies with Oreck and their warranty customer service. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 27, 2011

    Nozzle is NOT as in picture! [Updated!]

    Hi. Our older similar model of this type of Panasonic vacuum cleaner's switch broke, so ordered this one, judging this should be better than the old one, as it has a much better nozzle, in the picture. Once the package arrived, we were quite disappointed that the nozzle was NOT the one as in the picture, but a much cheaper & less functional one. The Panasonic home page shows the same picture with the 'better' nozzle. I should call up Panasonic for what's this all about. Other than that, works fine just like the old one, and now has a metal (not plastic) straight hose.[Update 2011/12/13]Hi again. After a lengthly process of calling Panasonic USA many times over near a month, the proper 'as in the picture' nozzle head arrived at my doorsteps suddenly. Yep, this is the one. A bit shorter in width, though has wheels and an extra degree of freedom. Please see my posted pictures. The Part # YMV96QAR000.

    Just what I was looking for

    0 5/5 Rainy Daze - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Panasonic MC-CG301 Bag "Suction" Canister Vacuum Cleaner (Kitchen) I needed a small vacuum for my RV that was light and easy to use and powerful and this is it! The dust bag is so easy to change. I also use it to blow the leaves off my deck. It is not as powerful as a leaf blower, but it still does the trick. If you have throw rugs you would have to adjust the lever on the wand so it is not as powerful, but it works well on rugs too and I have 1 dog and two cats in the RV. It is well worth the money! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 12, 2011

    Same as Kenmore for Half the price!

    This vac might actually be worthy of a 5-star review, but I haven't used it long enough to have that strong of an opinion, so I'm giving it 4 stars for now.I never thought I'd buy a vacuum cleaner online -- I'm so picky about little things like ergonomics, how well it cleans, etc, and I know that shipping back an unwanted vac would be so expensive that I'd end up keeping a vac I didn't like.However, I had looked everywhere in town for a vac that did well in Consumer Reports testing but didn't cost a lot, and I'd had no luck.

    Good Machine, Good Value

    Overall, I'm happy with this product. It gets the job done better and more efficiently than the canister and upright vacuums I was using.Pros:- Off/floor/carpet slide switch is on the top of the handle - super convenient to run from rugs to bare floor and back.- Good suction - picks up small rocks.- The power head is low profile - gets under the toe kicks and sofa.- The long cord reaches several rooms, rewinds.- The extra floor attachment is ~9" and so gets into the nooks and crannies the powerhead won't.- The wand / powerhead clip on the unit when upright so it stores compactly in the closet.- Powerhead is light, a breeze to whip around the room, but see handle con.Cons:- The carpet height indicator is hard to see in anything but bright light.- The handle rotates freely 90d ccw, which is good for getting under the sofa if you're right-handed, but not so good if you're left handed.

    Revised review - died after one year

    I got this vacuum after initially purchasing another brand and sending it back. This is exactly what I want a vacuum to be. It's lightweight to pull around. I had a similarly designed Hoover for 15 years and this is as powerful as it was, but much lighter and easier to maneuver. Cleverly designed so the handle can rotate to go under beds, etc. without too much stooping on my part, which is good since I have issues with my back. Best of all, it has really powerful suction, even on my deep pile carpets. It was also very easy to put together - I was able to put it together without help from my husband, who gets called in on the tough jobs. It would have gotten 5 enthusiastic stars from me, except for one minor design flaw. I like to use the brush attachment for dusting, but this b rush is so wide and narrow (what was wrong with round brushes?) that when you turn on the vacuum, the suction causes the soft plastic of the brush to close up completely! So basically, the brush tool... 2/5 L. Young "lisafx" (Clearwater, FL USA) - See all my reviews, December 26, 2010

    Great vacuum from Panasonic - lightweight, lossless suction comparable to Dyson. But read on for side-by-side comparisons...

    We tested *most* of the top-selling vacuums on Amazon, in side-by-side tests. First, two observations:(1) Dyson is not the "best" vacuum ever made, but they do have the best marketing. If you're looking for the "best" vacuum, let's reframe the question a little bit - perhaps what's the best vacuum under $500 or under $1000? If you're looking for the "best", be prepared to spend a minimum of $2,000-$3,000 for a commercial upright or whole-house system.(2) About rating systems - only side-by-side comparisons make sense to us. A friend owns a Ferrari, and complains about expensive tune-ups. He would give his Ferrari 3 stars on a bad day, 4 stars on a good day. My dad really likes his Hyundai, and would give it 5 stars. Does that make Hyundai better than Ferrari? We believe only in comparing apples to apples.Wish we could just say "XYZ is the best at everything, buy it!" ... but the fact is, each vacuum has its pros and cons. Some are better at area... 5/5 Mad Max (Seattle, WA USA) - See all my reviews, January 16, 2013

    Great Vacuum

    0 4/5 Stephenie - See all my reviews This review is from: Panasonic "Jet Force Bagless" Upright Vacuum Cleaner MC-UL425, Dynamic Blue & Black finish (Misc.) Purchased this vacuum in August 2012...I would rate it highly. Only complaint is that the top round 4 inch filter on the unit seems to get dirty rather quickly (which probably means it's working fine to trap dust). All you have to do is wash it out with water to clean it...the problem is that it takes forever for it to dry out (24 hours is suggested). Thus you can't use the vacuum until that filter is completely dry. I ended up having to purchase a second filter, which I can pop in while the first one is drying, should you want to use the vacuum again in less than 24 hours.Took me awhile with Panasonic on the phone to get the part number and finally get it ordered.
