Journals of Continental Congress - Library of Congress Collection

1 post / 0 new

I have heard Thom mention the transcipts and/or journals from the Continental Congress and in my search for the most comprehensive and complete I have found many. There is a series, 34 volumes, that are numberically listed and published by the Library of Congress. They are categorized by the years and months (e.g. Sept. 5, 1774 to Oct. 26, 1774) and can be found in the The Library of Congress/American Memory/Lawmaking Home. I am wondering if these are the best to buy? Amazon has this set listed and I am anixous to begin my reading. Could somone tell me if this is the best of the lot or are there other publications that are better? Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read and reply.

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
