Phineas Finn by Anthony Trollope Phineas Finn is the sequel to "Can you Forgive Her?" and the second novel in Trollope's Palliser series. The eponymous hero is a young Irishman who becomes a member of the English parliament. Trollope aspired to become an M.P. himself, and he ably describes the workings of the English political scene. There is also a love interest, as the somewhat inconstant Phineas courts three different women: his Irish sweetheart, Mary Flood Jones; Lady Laura Standish, the daughter of a prominent Whig politician; and a lovely heiress, Violet Effingham. (Summary by Karen Merline) This is the second of Trollop's six "Palliser" novels. LibriVox recordings of other novels in the series are available: 1-Can You Forgive Her? 2-Phineas Finn 3-The Eustace Diamonds 4-Phineas Redux 5-The Prime Minister 6-The Duke's Children

Principles of Economics (Audio Book), Book 6: The Distribution of National Income by Alfred Marshall Principles of Economics is a leading economics textbook by Alfred Marshall (1842-1924), first published in 1890. Marshall began writing the Principles of Economics in 1881 and he spent much of the next decade at work on it. His plan for the work gradually extended to a two-volume compilation on the whole of economic thought. The first volume was published in 1890 to worldwide acclaim that established him as one of the leading economists of his time. It brought the ideas of supply and demand, of marginal utility and of the costs of production into a coherent whole, and became the dominant economic textbook in England for a long period. The second volume, which was to address foreign trade, money, trade fluctuations, taxation, and collectivism, was never published at all. This reading is based on the eighth edition, published in 1920.
