Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I just finished reading my $2 used hardback copy of this book. OK, so I don't have it on my Kindle (which piece of junk died recently anyhow) but 57 bucks? And I thought MY post-acid grip of reality was tenuous.
As FH writes: "the pursuit of private and essentialy individualistic goals by enterprises. consumers, and workers in their
market choices -- the distinctive capitalistic values that give the system its drive -- must be girded at key
points by a strict social morality which the system erodes rather than sustains."
Seeds of its own destruction, anyone? I didn't agree with everything here, especially FH's take on labor unions, but I don't require full agreement to learn something. And I'm obviously not an expert in the subject matter. Anything but.
But this is a tremendous book, diabolically dense in ideas despite its small size. Dated, but still usable, Social Limits is not popularized or dumbed-down. Buy a nice used HB and use the savings to buy something for someone.

Not having read this book myself, I want to point to the 17 June 2013 review written by Steven Hayward on I found it hard to believe his reference the $57.00 Kindle price, but, hey, it might be worth it.
