Revamping the Political Economy after the Impending Collapse No country can borrow indefinitely without fatal consequences. But that is just what the United States is doing; adding nearly a trillion dollars annually to its already massive debt, as overseen by a Congress with an approval rating in the 10-to-14 percent range. In the process, the mind-set that spawned the sub-prime mortgage now renders the entire economy sub-prime. This book explains why and how resolution might obtain after the collapse. The essence is termed polity economics, given that the bifurcated concepts of capitalism and socialism have lost their utility yet persist as incompatible political touchstones. This perspective includes some twenty explicit elements, all addressed at length. Yet by itself, it too will also eventually fail. For it is also essential to restate the Constitution so that it becomes efficaciously aligned with the evolved culture and ethic of the United States, especially to instill stability within the fiscal operations that have come to dominate the country. The ABC's of that admittedly profound document simply do not address the D-through-Z's that have devolved over more than two centuries. Excerpts On fiscal carrying capacity. Isn't the United States simply too big to fail? History laughs. Every empire and nation has been laid waste when it continuously reached for more than it could grasp, which leads to the primary argument in this book: --Every economy has a substantive need for just so much money and fungible assets: a carrying capacity, so to speak. When that capacity is exceeded, money becomes a commodity in its own right. Given propensities to accumulate money and inflate values over a bread-and-butter baseline, the econ-omy degenerates in three successive tiers. The first tier harbors the inevitable dis-tensions of economics, such as periodic business cycles and recessions. Yet money remains a tool, not the essence. But if recessions are avoided, money begins to compete with the substantive aspects of an economy. This is the second tier, where leveraged val-ues inherently devolve unstable, followed eventually by a depression. Yet even de-pres-sion can be staved off by massive bailouts and unsustainable debt. This is the third tier. Money takes pri-or-ity over substance, until, that is, the economy collapses. On political versus supposed economic rights. There may be free speech; there is no free lunch."

In legal interpretation, where does meaning come from? Law is made from language, yet law, unlike other language-related disciplines, has not so far experienced its "pragmatic turn" towards inference and the construction of meaning. This book investigates to what extent a pragmatically based view of l linguistic and legal interpretation can lead to new theoretical views for law and, in addition, to practical consequences in legal decision-making. With its traditional emphasis on the letter of the law and the immutable stability of a text as legal foundation, law has been slow to take the pragmatic perspective: namely, the language-user 's experience and activity in making meaning. More accustomed to literal than to pragmatic notions of meaning, that is, in the text rather than constructed by speakers and hearers the disciplines of law may be culturally resistant to the pragmatic turn. By bringing together the different but complementary perspectives of pragmaticians and lawyers, this book addresses the issue of to what extent legal meaning can be productively analysed as deriving from resources beyond the text, beyond the letter of the law. This collection re-visits the feasibility of the notion of literal meaning for legal interpretation and, at the same time, the feasibility of pragmatic meaning for law. Can explications of pragmatic meaning support court actions in the same way concepts of literal meaning have traditionally supported statutory interpretations and court judgements? What are the consequences of a user-based view of language for the law, in both its practices of interpretation and its definition of itself as a field? Readers will find in this collection means of approaching such questions, and promising routes for inquiry into the genre- and field-specific characteristics of inference in law. In many respects, the problem of literal vs. pragmatic meaning confined to the text vs. reaching beyond it will appear to parallel the dichotomy in law between textualism and intentionalism. There are indeed illuminating connections between the pair of linguistic terms and the more publicly controversial legal ones. But the parallel is not exact, and the linguistic dichotomy is in any case anterior to the legal one. Even as linguistic-pragmatic investigation may serve legal domains, the legal questions themselves point back to central conditions of all linguistic meaning.
