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.

    Excellent Vacuum

    NOVEMBER 2014 UPDATE: Just happened to be responding to a response to my review and noticed all the negative comments about this vacuum! I'm shocked! While I don't doubt any of these reviews, I do have to say that I am still very happy with the vacuum, and so is my daughter with hers. It still runs beautifully and I have absolutely no complaints. Nothing has gone wrong with any of the parts or attachments. Can't comment regarding the customer service issues and that is unnerving to know. However, spending $200 for a vacuum is not a huge amount of money. For me, personally, I would still be happy with mine even if it started to act up after a few years of use. Things just aren't built the way they used to be. If Kenmore vacs were built the way they used to be (I had my old one for 15 years), I would have bought another Kenmore. For me, my Panasonic is holding up and I'll just keep my fingers crossed for the future!January 2013 UPDATE: It's been a year that I've owned and... 5/5 Grammy2 "Loving Life" - See all my reviews This review is from: Panasonic MC-CG917 "OptiFlow" Bag Canister Vacuum Cleaner (Misc.)

    Nicely built, excellent performance. Just a few minor issues.

    Overall I'm very pleased with this vacuum. It excels in the areas that are most important in a vacuum - it picks up dirt very well and it is solidly built.I find the second factor (build quality) to be something that's becoming harder to find these days. For example, I had a Hoover bagless canister that performed very well, but lasted less than 3 years before calling it quits. Along the way it started shedding pieces, such as a cracked hose, an on-again, off-again working status for the power head, and so forth. The Panasonic, however, feels very substantial, especially the hose. I know you're not supposed to pull it along by the hose connection, but I do (and I suspect that many others do as well). The hose is made of thick plastic and the end connectors seem very well up to the task of being stressed now and again.This is my second Panasonic vac - the other one is about 2 or 3 years old and works (and looks) as good as it did on day one (albeit some scuffing... 5/5 Comdet - See all my reviews, December 7, 2011

    Pretty good for a mid-priced canister vacuum

    Update April 30, 2014:I can't believe this vacuum is almost two and a half years old already. It's holding up extremely well. Impressed with how clean it stays inside the canister--not a lot of dust and debris like we've had with some vacuums. I guess the bag seals well at the entry point, the filtration system is good. There have been no problems at all with this device.----My wife and I have been using the OptiFlow canister vacuum cleaner for a few weeks now, and we agree that it competes quite well with the CR-recommended Sears unit we also own. We like to keep two vacuums: one for upstairs and one for downstairs most of the year, and then we take one of them to our little summer cabin to use there during the summer.As mentioned elsewhere, there's lots of plastic in this device.Advantages:1. Good sucking power--not as strong as the other device we have, but probably 90 or 95% as much. A close second.2. Good... 4/5 J. Friedman "J-F" (Upstate NY USA) - See all my reviews, January 19, 2012

    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. So, I went ahead and took a chance on this vac; it did really well in the latest Consumer Reports testing and had overall good reviews on Amazon.

    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
