I received an email from a PR company about Ivy Turow's new book "Saying Goodbye to Verena". M/S Turow apparently provides interesting commentary about extreme wealth in today's society. She asks: is being a predator the only way to get ahead? Can only a select cutthroat few succeed while the ethical everyman struggles to get by?
When I read this I just had to laugh for just last night I published an article at kingscalendar about just this issue. The title of the article was "Giving the Finger to Comrade GOOGLE's brand of Communism
So pleased am I to have received the PR email and its content that I have sent a message to the company inviting M/S Turow to pen a few of her thoughts and ideas at Magic City Morning Star News. It would provide publicity for her book and give Magic City readers someone new to read. Anyway, without further ado, here is the email I received:
Dear Mr. BenDedek,
"Play nice" is a phrase we often hear as children. Yet that sort of thinking is starting to become obsolete in the corporate workforce today. And when being a predator is the only way to get ahead, only a select few can succeed while the others scrape and save.
Expert economist Ivy Turow's new book Saying Goodbye to Verena provides interesting commentary about extreme wealth in today's society. She asks: is being a predator the only way to get ahead? Can only a select cutthroat few succeed while the ethical everyman struggles to get by?
Major themes in the book include:
The relationship between absent morals and career mobility
Corporate tendency to do what they do simply because they can
A call to arms for decency as a means to a collective end
The common affliction of people spending so much more than their means
The use of "game theory" to argue extreme observations about our current economy
Blending hard facts with fiction, Saying Goodbye to Verena is a novel that will bring these issues to the public in a format that is accessible and unprecedented. This book calls the reader to arms using forceful, clear, and emotive prose.
Ivy Turow is an economist with three degrees, including a postgraduate degree in philosophy. After working for several corporations herself, she became frustrated with the system and decided to address the problem at its root. Now, the owner of her own business, she strives hard to be an example for decent capitalism. She currently resides in England.

Giving the Finger to Comrade GOOGLE's brand of Communism
By Comrade R.P. BenDedek
August 26, 2013
I have come to the decision that the only thing I can do is take a page out of Comrade Google's 'Little Red Book' and say: 'Screw You!' Comrade Google didn't like the way the Communist Government of China kept changing the rules. Comrade Google would not submit to a 'totalitarian authority'. Comrade Google decided to pull up stakes and leave. Is there a lesson to be learned in that?
