God Wants you to be Rich May 23, 2010
This book was right on time and it definitely let's us know that God has an abundance of everything!
The world is designed as a super abundant place Jul 31, 2009
Pilzer argues that the world was designed as a super-abundant place, with technology as the engine that delivers the greatest benefits to the greatest numbers. To support this thesis, Pilzer cited, inter alia, the fact that since 1750 the gross world output has increased more than 1700 times whilst population has increased only 6 X.Given its aim to find the most equitable distribution of scarce resources, it is no wonder that economics was given the title of the "dismal science". But economists take little account of 2 factors that are in fact central to its understanding: people, who have limitless creativity to create new products and services that makes life better, and technology, enabling us to produce things with greater ease and at lower cost. Industrial competition forces ever increasing technological replacement to produce the best, cheapest products for the consumers, a process that economist Joseph Schumpeter called "creative destruction". Pilzer describes this process as "the grease that keeps the wheels of prosperity in motion".
Dreadful Mar 15, 2008
The author wrote an interesting book on economics and technology long ago. It was published in the late 1980s or early 1990s. Then he became a tiresome and annoying fundamentalist. Since then he has written nothing worth reading. A friend gave me his copy of this title after losing interest in it by the third chapter. I managed to read the entire book on a plane ride. Unfortunately, it was the only reading material I had.
If god wants you to be rich, it appears that he hates 95% of humanity because it's poor.
Don't waste your time and money on this tiresome religious propaganda.
Here's a far better alternative: Randy Gage's Why You're Dumb, Sick, and Broke.
Debunking the poverty myth Feb 16, 2008
I have listened to a great many people talk about the poverty of people and portraying themselves as the saviors of the have-nots. It always made me feel like I was from another planet because their rhetoric did not make sense at all. These people think that robbing one group of people Marxist style and give it to another would some how bring an end to poverty. Driven by envy they have convinced millions to think that their lack was caused by the ingenuity and industriousness of others who recognized the benefits of a free market economy which Karl Marx dubbed Capitalism.
Now I am back on earth because Paul Zane Pilzer debunked the poverty myth and confirmed my thoughts on the subject. It gives an excellent account of what is causing the never ending cycle of poverty. It is not ingenuity nor is it capitalism. Poverty is caused by the lack of faith and the continued indoctrination that government is responsible for peoples well being. I love the title because faith is the force that moves you to make things happen. The following excerpt says it all.
"In his last great book Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy the economist Joseph Schumpeter predicted that capitalism would eventually self-destruct because the people displaced by advancing technology would democratically vote in a socialist form of government."
"The word "economics" comes from the Greek word oikonomia meaning the "management of a household." While today "economics" has come to mean the study of business and government issues by professional academics, the real economists in our society are the ones who practice economics--the hundreds of millions of people seeking to economically manage their own households or lives every day."
And when it comes to continually proving Schumpeter wrong in what he regarded as his great triumph, there is nothing more important than the role that now befalls you, the real economist, the reader of this book--the role to continually teach every member of our society how and why we live in a world of abundance, and how and why God wants every one of us to be rich. God bless you."
Instead of beating the same old poverty of the people drum the saviors of the have-nots need to read this book and give up the antiquated mindset that is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. Poverty begets poverty but God wants all his children to be rich not just some...go for Yankee ingenuity!
God Wants You to Be Rich: How and Why Everyone Can Enjoy Material and Spiritual Wealth in Our Abundant World
Yes, God does, but... Oct 20, 2007
Yes, God does want you to be rich, but please avoid Judas' fate. He was mislead by his desire/attachment to wealth and as a result he betrayed Jesus. When he realized he had been used by well intentioned religious leaders, he killed himself. Beware of your own motive for riches. And yes, God has blessed me with wealth.
