Basnagoda Rahula’s doctoral disseration – pdf and rtf

I’ve discussed Basnagoda Rahula’s doctoral dissertation a few years ago on this blog. I accidentally chanced upon its PDF version (which is available here) while cleaning up my computer.

I decided to spend 5 minutes to OCR to RTF, so this excellent document can be more readily read/ accessed. Download: PDF | RTF

I notice that Basnagoda Rahula is now an English professor at Lone Star College in Houston.

He is also President of the Houston Vihara.

He has written a well-received book: The Buddha’s Teachings on Prosperity

Please download and share free e-books on economics for children, by Michael A. Malgeri

Michael A. Malgeri has just sent me an email which I’m sharing here (and will also share on my Economics for Children Facebook page) [Writing for children continues to be one of my goals – but it is on the back burner at the moment, given many other priorities.]

Btw, I had introduced readers to Michael Malgeri’s work in 2013, here.


We corresponded several years ago about my children’s book series that teach young people the fundamentals of Capitalism.

I’m offering the ebooks as FREE downloads on my website and thought you might be interested in spreading the word to your community.

The “Johnny Profit” series teaches Capitalism and other free enterprise concepts through short, simple fiction.

The series has been endorsed by Steve Forbes, Larry Kudlow and Joseph Bast of the Heartland Institute (see below my signature).

I’m currently involved in helping spread ideas of innovation, entrepreneurship and liberty among the youth of Africa.

Please consider visiting  where you can download each of the books in the series.

There are also pictures of the programs in Africa.

Thank you for your consideration.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

Michael A. Malgeri

“Michael Malgeri has created a series of small books that could change the way an entire generation views individualism, profit-making, and capitalism. The books are easy to read and fun to discuss with children of all ages. They capture the imagination and explain the moral foundations of the free society with just a few words and pictures. Adam Smith and Milton Friedman would have approved!”  – Joseph Bast, President, The Heartland Institute.

“Kids will learn from these. But adults would, too! Should be mandatory reading in Washington.”  – Steve Forbes, Forbes Magazine

‘Johnny Profit’ bucks convention and takes the labels of guilt and greed out of honest profit making.” – Larry Kudlow, host of CNBC’s The Kudlow Report
