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.

    Finally ... a Vacuum Cleaning System Worth the Money

    First, a disclaimer of sorts .... I'm a long-term, died-in-the-wool Hoover evangelist. No, I don't work for Hoover, but I've always used them religiously for over 30 years. I've tried switching off to other top-of-the-line brands (Oreck, Eureka, Kenmore, etc.), but I always return to Hoover for their unsurpassed cleaning power and reliability.That does not, however, mean they were perfect.* The Hoover WindTunnel U6439 bagged upright that I've had for the last several years would suck up a Buick. Unfortunately, it also rivaled a Buick in the weight category. Although it's supposedly a "self-propelled" model, I felt like I had to go into training in order to vacuum my house. It became something I would put off because I wasn't sure I had the strength to wrestle this bulky beast all over my house.* The WindTunnel controls which allow you to change the brush height from carpet to floor were manual, hard-to-move levers on the brush housing which... 5/5 Jan Schroeder (Denver, CO) - See all my reviews This review is from: Hoover Platinum Collection Lightweight Bagged Upright with Canister, UH30010COM (Kitchen) First, a disclaimer of sorts ....

    Can the canister - Not your best Hoover

    We read the overwhelming positive reviews and decided, with confidence, to buy our first nice vacuum. We were extremely pleased with the upright vacuum. It's lightweight just as others had promised. It sucked up everything and even felt cool to operate. Huge bag, nice filtration, excellent light and comfortable design. We were pleased!Then came time to vacuum the hardwood, linoleum and stairs. I took out the "handy" shoulder-strapped canister, placed the floor tip on and went to work. OUCH!!! This thing is so loud and bulky. The motor whines with a loud high pitch when tools are on and it only does an average job of sucking up our normal dust and dirt. The on-board tools fall out every time you pick up the canister and there's no cord rewind at all. Just the cord. (No hooks & no rewind option) The Hepa bag is tiny and fills immediately. The replacement bags aren't cheap either. No way would I put up with this.We're normal people that require a versatile... 3/5 Samary (Colorado) - See all my reviews This review is from: Hoover Platinum Collection Lightweight Bagged Upright with Canister, UH30010COM (Kitchen) We read the overwhelming positive reviews and decided, with confidence, to buy our first nice vacuum.

    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

    0 5/5 Rlm - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) In short, WELL PLEASED. I found unit to be of high quality, well designed, and incredible in it's cleaning. I am extremely satisfied with job it did on hardwoods floors, oriental rugs, cleaning upholstered furniture, and sucking the dust off of furniture. As I have a lot of Victorian furniture, with lots of nooks and crannies, molding, carving,etc . . . lots of places for dust to accumulate, I was pleasantly surprised at the great job this unit did in cleaning all af these hard to get to places. Unit has A LOT of suction.. While cleaning isn't my idea of fun, this unit makes the job considerably easier. Would not be without it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 28, 2012

    Oreck

    Best vacuum cleaner I have owned

    I was always a bit skeptical of Oreck with their bowling ball commercial. I was given a chance to try out the Oreck Magnesium and didn't know what to expect. I find myself pleasantly surprised.First, the Magnesium is very light. The cord almost feels heavier than the entire vacuum cleaner itself. Set up took less than a minute. The Magnesium comes almost assembled - you just have to attached the handle, which doesn't require tools and takes a couple seconds.The rest of the construction feels solid, apart from the plastic tube near the back. I wish that was made of the same material as the handle. The bag and zipper parts also feel well made. I never owned a bagged vacuum cleaner before, but Oreck's bagged system actually works well. The bag seals itself, so there's no mess (unlike with my bagless cleaner that ends up spreading dust around when I dump it out). I'm also a sucker for the electric blue accent color of the bag portion.As for... 5/5 Quoad Toad (Chicago) - See all my reviews, June 5, 2012

    Good performance, high price, annual maintenance cost.

    I had always shied away from Orecks in the past. I have friends who absolutely adore them, but as they explained their experience with Oreck I was always unsure it was a good idea for me to buy an Oreck for myself.Why?Well, there are two reasons really.1) Regular maintenance despite a higher cost up front. Orecks cost more than most other vacuums as a rule. But once you pay the premium price, you have to take it to an Oreck service center annually to replace motor parts, gaskets, and belts. This is not the case with any other vacuum brand that I am aware of. Of course, my friends had their Oreck vacuum for years and years, but over the lifetime of the vacuum they continued to shell out money on something they already purchased.2) Orecks are never rated very highly by Consumer Reports. I've never seen any Oreck model in the top ten vacuums in independent testing of 50 vacuums.Now, my Oreck fanboy friends never like it when I point... 3/5 Just Trying to Help (USA) - See all my reviews, June 8, 2012

    Important Aspects To Consider

    First, some quick background info.I did quite a bit of research prior to this purchase. I own a 20 year old home in need of new carpet so, we decided to go with a high quality carpet; Mohawk SmartStrand Silk. This carpet is an average length cut yet super dense pile and it is a darn good thing that I asked our salesperson what vacuum was recommended. He gave me a certain model of Oreck vacuum.Prior to this I was looking into a Rainbow vacuum because I always wanted one but, I am glad I decided against it because a Rainbow vacuum requires some minor cleaning after each use, and my wife and I did not want the extra work. Secondly, I was considering a Miele because of the superior engineering and the quiet/easy operation. But, I began to consider an Oreck after it was recommended by our local flooring company that has a long standing positive reputation in our community of about a quarter million population.The local Tarjay has the Oreck Magnesium for sale... 5/5 Paul Fucich (Palmdale, CA) - See all my reviews, March 11, 2013

    The best vacuum I have ever owned

    I have only had the Miele (pronounced 'Mee-lah') S7260 Cat and Dog for a short time, but I have put it through its paces throughout the house, which is approximately 3500 sq. ft. and consists of all type of flooring - plush carpet, Berber carpet, wool area rugs, hardwood, ceramic tile, stair runners, etc. Barring anything happening to change my opinion (such as something breaking that shouldn't break, etc.), I really like this machine!In the past, I have used bagless machines - which I hated because they are a filthy mess to empty. Also, if you have a dog with fur dander, the dander winds up plugging up all the inner suction holes and you have to use another vacuum to clean your vacuum (how stupid is that?), and they build up odor that you can't get rid of. So - nothing for me without a good bag system, thank you very much. Had an Oreck XL-21 (top of the line when purchased) that has served us pretty well for many years, but because of some issues with the Oreck store and... 5/5 Justin Opinion (USA) - See all my reviews, January 26, 2012

    Miele Cat and Dog S7260

    I have used Kirby, Rainbow, and several other high end vacuums. The Miele S7260 is by far the best vacuum I have used in its price range. Much better design than the Dyson Ball. The Dyson Ball will not roll under furniture but the Miele lays completely flat and turns better than a Dyson Ball. The vacuum is powerful, quiet, and I enjoy using it. I ended up purchasing the unit from Carmens Vacuum and Janitorial in Columbus Ohio. The owner was very helpful and couldn't recommend any other vacuum in the store. I asked if price was not a problem what vacuum would you buy? He said the Miele upright. I compared several other $500-$800 vacuums and went with the Miele. Carmens offered a 7 year full warranty at no cost. The S7260 comes with the LED lights and the pet filter. I won't post the price but I couldn't find a better deal; not even on Amazon.

    good when it works

    Here are my thoughts about the Miele Cat and Dog S7260 VacuumFirst, I would like to preface this review with some information I think is relevant. Prior to my purchase of the Miele Cat and Dog, I owned a Royal canister vacuum for about 14 years. It was extremely powerful, and for 14 years I thought it was the greatest vacuum cleaner ever. Mostly. The only things I didn't like about it were that it was a little unwieldy to lug up and down the stairs and the air that it spewed didn't smell very good. Oh, and truthfully it really wasn't pretty (a minor thing, but still). So naturally when it came time to find a new vacuum I checked out Royals first. Well, let's just say the quality has gone way down hill for that company. Still looking for a high-quality, powerful vacuum, my research then led me to Miele. I ended up deciding on the S7260 partly because we have a cat and dog, but also because I decided an upright might be easier to deal with and because the long hose... 3/5 MuseeMommy (Montana) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
