  • Contemporary interest in food is not confined to pleasure in its consumption, but extends in every direction: to its economic importance, the semiotics of food taste, the dangers of food additives and the politics of food security. We live in societies as dominated by food preferences as by sexual preferences, as obsessed about eating too little as by eating too much. In addition our interest in food is associated, for good and evil, with our interest in ‘nature’.

Alongside these developments, the rise of the organic food movement has helped to revitalize...

  • Many developing countries are currently in the process of restructuring their economies towards a more market-oriented production. This process had been initiated inter alia by efforts under the auspices of the World Trade Organization (WTO) to progressively liberalize international markets. More than 100 developing countries are now Members of the WTO. Since its establishment in early 1995, it became evident that progressively subjecting national production to market forces can have both positive and negative effects on Members’ economies, societies and environment.

  • Several main observations are developed in the discussion below. First, while geographic availability of depository services to areas not served by private banks was always a prime justification of postal savings – in the United States as well as in Japan and Europe – it has not proved to be the major source of demand for postal savings, even if it was important to a few rural customers. From the start, the U.S.

  • There is in human affairs a reason for everything we see, although not always reason in everything. It is the part of the historian to seek in the archives of a nation the reasons for the facts of common experience and observation, it is the part of the philosopher to moralize upon antecedent causes and present results. Neither of these positions is taken up by the author of this little book. He merely, as a rule, gives the picture of Dutch life now to be seen in the Netherlands, and in all things tries to be scrupulously fair to a people renowned for their kindness...
