  • they want to keep costs down and make sure that labor is docile and obedient
  • If you have to control people, you have to have an administrative force that does it
  • we should put aside any idea that there was once a “golden age.” Things were different and in some ways better in the past, but far from perfect
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • And I think those are the kinds of things we should be moving towards: a democratic institution, in which the people involved in the institution, whoever they may be (faculty, students, staff), participate in determining the nature of the institution and how it runs; and the same should go for a factory
  • There are more and more professional administrators, layer after layer of them, with more and more positions being taken remote from the faculty controls

Quandl - Find, Use and Share Numerical Data - 52 views

    Hi Professor Neustadtl, I have developed a repository for sociology data tailored for researchers, and especially students.  The site is open and free, and has over 3 million social, financial, and economic time series datasets available for downloading.  Importantly, the ease by which a user can find, trim, transform, merge, and download time series data from is in my opinion, unmatched elsewhere. My hope is that you will visit the site briefly, and perhaps offer me some feedback.  More information about the service is below. I've also included my LinkedIN profile should you be weary of my intentions with this email. with thanks, Tammer -- Tammer Kamel
