GOODBYE CITIZEN CHAIRMAN





The most gripping coup d'état in human history. Contains the never before published thoughts which led Thomas Theisman to the final conclusion that Oscar Saint-Just simply had to die. The book opens with an interesting revelation of Theisman's personal account of his quite emotional, innermost thought preceding that fateful line...

'The Ides of March are upon us,' "Goodbye, Citizen Chairman."

<Beth and I>
—by Ariel


<THE TASTE OF STEEL>
—by Ariel



The first offering of the two volume set, contains an intimate look at the origin and history of Elizabeth's bonding with Ariel and many personal, charming, dangerous and often amusing accounts of the two thereafter.

The second volume contains previously classified accounts of the duo that affords a more "clandestine" look into the secret and often harrowing lives of the pair. Recently unclassified.

The blamarcket is not an actual warehouse sitting somewhere in the dead of space, but rather an economic hub of activity in which merchandise and/or services are bought and sold illegally. Also called the “underground market,” this market gets its name due to the fact that its activity is conducted out of sight and often “in the dark,” outside the sight of various agencies. It can be illustrated by something as innocent and innocuous as selling copyrighted HD music and movies. gum on the playground, or by something as serious as the sale of smuggled weapons or drugs.

In other cases, goods may be stolen and or pirated and then re-sold on the black market. When a good is euphemistically referred to as having “fallen off the back of a freighter ,” usually it means that it has been stolen for the purpose of being sold illegally. If you are purchasing a new stereo, for example, from an individual at an extremely low price, there’s a good chance that it’s been stolen. Another way that a transaction can be illegal is if it is an otherwise legal good or service that is bought or sold in such a way as to avoid proper licensing or taxes. This is the case with unregistered firearms and cigarettes, which usually include a hefty local, state, or federal tax.

Due to man’s inherently entrepreneurial nature, coupled with government’s pesky tendency to regulate, black markets can and do exist everywhere. They do, however, tend to develop more readily on planets and systems with especially heavy regulation. Even though a good or service becomes outlawed or heavily regulated, the market may continue to demand it. As a result, the black market springs up to meet the market’s demand. This is the case when governments place price controls, rationing or complete prohibition on a good or service.

Although the consumer’s demand is met, usually the seller or “black marketeer” is the one who profits from a transaction. Prices on this market tend to be higher due to smaller supply and constant demand. The risk that a marketeer takes in acquiring and selling a good or service is also included in the price. If it is a difficult good to acquire, it will have a higher price as well. At times, prices can be lower if the seller has lower “overhead” because he or she stole the good or is avoiding high taxes.

Consumers are often willing to overlook the illegality of a black market transaction if they feel that the good or service is “harmless.” This is often the case with illegal prostitution and also applied to alcohol sales during prohibition. Although some people think that most illegal transactions are relatively harmless, the money generated is often used for nefarious purposes. The mafia in the U.S. thrived during prohibition, resulting in bloody battles over turf and profits. Governments combating illegal markets spend vast fortunes fighting organized crime and racketeering, and lose millions in tax revenues from the prohibited good.

Many solutions to the black market have been proposed, including deregulation, legalizing drugs and prostitution, and increasing supply of a particular good. Some argue that this is a concession to criminals and drug users, while others argue that government resources can be put to better use.
