Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows

Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows

"An important and groundbreaking contribution to the struggle for the welfare of animals." --Yuval Harari, New York Times best-selling author of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind The book offers an absorbing look at why and how humans can so wholeheartedly devote ourselves to certain animals and then allow others to suffer needlessly, especially those slaughtered for our consumption. Social psychologist Melanie Joy explores the many ways we numb ourselves and disconnect from our natural empathy for farmed animals. She coins the term "carnism" to describe the belief system that has conditioned us to eat certain animals and not others. In Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows , Joy investigates factory farming, exposing how cruelly the animals are treated, the hazards that meatpacking workers face, and the environmental impact of raising 10 billion animals for food each year. Controversial and challenging, this book will change the way you think about food forever. "An absorbing examination of why humans feel affection and compassion for certain animals but are callous to the suffering of others." -- Publishers Weekly "I think Gandhi would have loved Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows. For this is a book that can change the way you think and change the way you live. It will lead you from denial to awareness, from passivity to action, and from resignation to hope." -- John Robbins , author of Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution

Gold: the Final Standard (2017) effectively forms a trilogy with Gold: the Once and Future Money (2007) and Gold: the Monetary Polaris(2013), between them describing the tools and concepts to understand money in all its forms. Here, the approach is historical: to document, in clear terms, humans’ experience with gold-based money, and various forms of debased, devalued and floating currencies, from prehistory to the present day — the Ancient World, Medieval Era, Bimetallic Era, Classical Gold Standard Period, Interwar Period, Bretton Woods, and today’s Floating Currency Era. Along the way, a great many counterclaims are examined, in a manner that is necessarily brief, but, I hope, adequate to address the issues in an effective way. Contriving hugely complex but still inadequate models and intricate statistical clouds of mythopoeic aggregates—giving each other Nobel prizes and other awards—economists laboriously try to explain what in Lewis’ gripping history of the last six thousand years emerges as just another episode of monetary manipulation and debauchery. “The primary innovation of the last century,” he observes, “has been to sprinkle spurious math upon these age old claims.” from the introduction by George Gilder, author of The Scandal of Money (2016) This profoundly important, impressively researched and fluidly written book explodes numerous myths and misunderstandings of the past and present that have led to so many destructive monetary policies. Modern economics will be forever altered, and we and future generations will be the richer for it. Steve Forbes, author of Money: How the Destruction of the Dollar Threatens the World Economy, and What We Can Do About It (2014) Gold: The Final Standard offers a magisterial overview of the history, and I hope, future of the gold standard. Meticulously researched and beautifully written, it should be mandatory reading for all students of the gold standard and especially its critics. Kevin Dowd, Durham University, au...
