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.

    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.

    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

    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

    Soniclean

    Let's start off by talking about assembly. I always get nervous when things aren't put together for me. But the Soniclean was fairly simple, The only thing that really needed to be done was attaching the handle, which took a few minutes at most. Once that was done, we were ready to start cleaning. One of the things I noticed about this vacuum right away is that it's extremely light weight. Its great for carting up and down the steps. The handle also bends all the way down to the floor, making it easy to slide the head under beds and chairs. It is a little too big to fit under my sofa but depending on how high it stands off the ground, some people would be able to squeeze it under there as well.As far as suction, this sucker is definitely powerful. I had no trouble picking up clumps of cat and dog hair, and those pesky cheerios came up easily as well in most areas. Because of the dual setting, I also found it worked great sweeping up the excess cat litter that got kicked... 4/5 NewAgeMama (New Jersey) - See all my reviews, August 28, 2013

    0 5/5 Bob G (California) - See all my reviews This review is from: VTplus by Soniclean: The First and Only Vacuum Cleaner To Use Sonic Cleaning Technology (Kitchen) So far so good. Purchased from Costco online @ $199.99 plus tax, delivery free one month ago. I don't vacuum that often so I still don't know about longterm reliability, but I'm impressed by the quality and performance so far. I have owned Oreck XL and Eureka The Boss uprights in the past, and the Soniclean I'd rate slightly below my old Oreck which I used for home and small cleaning business in the 70's and 80's, purchased for $125 at that time, and better than the lower quality Boss.

    Electrolux

    Compared to Dyson DC33 -- and I really, really like it!

    --> (2/10/14: Check the bottom of this review for a couple of updates)A quick summary: This unit cleans great! No problems with pet hair, edge suction is very good (much better than anything I've used previously), and the cleaning wand & hose setup is ingenious (though largely copied from Dyson's DC33). Dumping the dust bin is a snap, with a few less parts than Dyson, and is a relatively clean process. The pivoting handle may be a little bit gimmicky, but it does indeed cause the vacuum's head to turn towards the direction it's tilted.I'll preface this review by noting I have the green Nimble, model 8605 sold at Lowe's, but the review I wrote for that item a couple of days ago seems to have disappeared into cyberspace. Oh well -- these are identical vacs, with the exception of the color and the extra attachment included with the green one. Apologies for the duplicate reviews.A possible point of confusion on that difference between models, from the product... 4/5 Nathaniel Allen (Oakland) - See all my reviews, April 18, 2011

    Excellent vacuum, especially for the price

    We researched just about every single vacuum out there before purchasing the Electrolux Nimble. We found it on sale at our local Target, so we picked it up for right around $250. While we were obviously tempted to purchase a Dyson, there were just too many negative reviews to justify spending almost double what we did on this vacuum. The first day we brought it home we ran the test where we vacuumed our carpet with our old vacuum and then with the Nimble. We live in a fairly small home, and had to empty the canister THREE times while vacuuming! I could not believe the hair, dust, dirt, everything that this vacuum picked up.PROS*Putting it together was beyond easy and took less than two minutes.*The canister is SO easy to empty.*It is what I would consider lightweight-I am currently 9 months pregnant and had no trouble lifting or pushing the vacuum.*The washable HEPA filter. There's nothing more frustrating than spending money on a product only to... 5/5 BabyMama - See all my reviews This review is from: Electrolux Nimble Upright Bagless Vacuum, EL8602A (Kitchen) We researched just about every single vacuum out there before purchasing the Electrolux Nimble. We found it on sale at our local Target, so we picked it up for right around $250. While we were obviously tempted to purchase a Dyson, there were just too many negative reviews to justify spending almost double what we did on this vacuum.

    Good suction/ Terrible parts!!

    My husband and I purchased the Nimble at Best Buy and we thought it is an Electrolux so it would be great! My mother in law has an older and much more expensive canister and she just raves about it. Not having much carpet in our home(hardwood mostly) we couldn't justify the cost of the higher end vacuums. When we opened the box and tried it out on our 6x9 area rug the brush sensor came on immediately. After taking it apart and putting it back together several times it never worked. Thinking it was just a fluke we exchanged it the next day. The same thing happened but we got it to work by taking the guard on the bottom off and readjusting the roller, subsequently breaking one of the turn screws with very little pressure. I contacted CS at Electrolux and they said this was normal because it has such powerful suction and it will lift big rugs??? I again inquired if they thought this was an acceptable defect and asked for a second time about the screw and they said the parts were on... 2/5 Lisa - See all my reviews This review is from: Electrolux Nimble Upright Bagless Vacuum, EL8602A (Kitchen) My husband and I purchased the Nimble at Best Buy and we thought it is an Electrolux so it would be great!
