Aristophanes
“[Y]ou possess all the attributes of a demagogue; a screeching, horrible voice, a perverse, crossgrained nature and the language of the market-place. In you all is united which is needful for governing.”
Aristophanes, The Knights

Richard J. Foster
“Because we lack a divine Center our need for security has led us into an insane attachment to things. We really must understand that the lust for affluence in contemporary society is psychotic. It is psychotic because it has completely lost touch with reality. We crave things we neither need nor enjoy. 'We buy things we do not want to impress people we do not like'. Where planned obsolescence leaves off, psychological obsolescence takes over. We are made to feel ashamed to wear clothes or drive cars until they are worn out. The mass media have convinced us that to be out of step with fashion is to be out of step with reality. It is time we awaken to the fact that conformity to a sick society is to be sick. Until we see how unbalanced our culture has become at this point, we will not be able to deal with the mammon spirit within ourselves nor will we desire Christian simplicity.”
Richard J. Foster, Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth

“There is a saturation of books on Amazon due to a sudden get-rich-quick surge in "everyone can be authors" seminars similar to the house flipping ones in the early 2000s which led to the housing bubble and an economic slowdown in the U.S. To distinguish quality books from those get-rich-quick ones, look at the author's track record - worldwide recognition as books that garnered credible awards, authors who speak at book industry events, authors who speak at schools, authors whose books are reference materials and reading sources at school and libraries. Get-rich books have a system to get over 500 reviews quickly, manipulates the Kindle Unlimited algorithm, and encourage collusion in the marketplace to knock out rivals. Be wary of trolls who are utilized to knock down the rankings of rival's books too. Once people have heard there is money to be made as a self-published author, just like house flipping, a cottage industry has risen to take advantage of it and turn book publishing into a get rich scheme, which is a shame for all the book publishers and authors, like me, who had published for the love of books, to write to help society, and for the love of literature.

“This planet was a marketplace where evil tugged murderously at its chains. Its spies were everywhere. At windy corners where young girls with knowing children’s faces were selling flowers and matches, on the operating tables at the hospitals, in the slums, at railway stations, under viaducts.”
Paul Leppin, Blaugast: A Novel of Decline

Jacques Ellul
“The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries abandoned the idea of spiritual or intellectual happiness in order to have this material happiness, consisting of a certain number of essential consumer goods. And hence, in the nineteenth century, happiness was linked to a well-being obtained by mechanical means, industrial means, production. The new thing that Saint-Just spoke about was that, in the past, happiness could appear as a very vague, very distant prospect for humanity, whereas now, people seemed to be within reach of the concrete, material possibility of attaining it. That was why happiness was to become an absolutely essential image for the nineteenth-century bourgeoisie, and for modern society. Happiness was attainable thanks to industrial development, and this image of happiness brought us fully into the consumer society.”
Jacques Ellul, Perspectives on Our Age

Erin Bow
“Kate faced the crowd. They were just eyes and teeth to her, just spit and voices. It was a moment, even, before they became people: a man with one blind eye, another whose neck was thick with lumps and weeping wounds of scrofula. The poorest of the market.
At Kate's feet, Drina. Her scarf and shirt were torn open.”
Erin Bow, Plain Kate

“Not having a recognised brand & trying to stand out in the market is like going to the market without any goods.”
Onyi Anyado

“The marketplace is an institution that teaches self-advancement, private acquisition, and the domination of nature. Its way of thinking is incompatible with the round river. Ecological harmony is a nonmarket value that takes a collective will to achieve.”
Donald Worster, Wealth of Nature: Environmental History and the Ecological Imagination

Jim Blasingame
“Every interaction in the marketplace produces some kind of evaluation or appraisal opportunity that can be conveyed to others by the person on the receiving end of the interaction.”

Svetlana Papazov
“A church for Monday fosters the creative streak placed in all of us from God and seeks sustainable ways to flourish the communities spiritually, socially, and economically. It translates the gospel for the postmodern world, develops whole-life disciples, and strategically embeds itself in the marketplace to grow the economy (Jer. 29:7).”
Svetlana Papazov, Church For Monday: Equipping Believers for Mission at Work

Svetlana Papazov
“As we know, the week has 168 hours. People spend on average only one hour at church on Sunday morning. What about the other 167 hours spent primarily at work, at home, and at play in a world quite intolerant of Christians, embracing other truths but opposing the truth of the Bible, enamored with narratives but rejecting the narrative of Jesus? What type of church prepares for that type of world? A Church for Monday!”

“All men can see these tactics
Whereby I master;
But out of which evolve profits
None can see the character.
Strategy without character
Is the slowest route to profits;
Tactics without strategy
Is the noise before loses”
Amah Lambert, The Art of Investing

Amah Lambert
“To discern profits only when it is within the ken of the market herd is not the acme of investing excellence”

Andrew McAfee
“Pricing strategies for two-sided networks can be aggressive and seemingly nonsensical if you don’t understand their peculiar economics. In particular, changes in the quantity demanded on one side of the network can affect demand on the other side of the network...Lowering the price on one side of the network increases demand on both sides of the network, creating an extra benefit for each price cut.”
Andrew McAfee, Machine, Platform, Crowd: Harnessing Our Digital Future

Svetlana Papazov
“I believe, the future church will be high-touch, experience focused, and Spirit-evident small congregations that grow from conversions, not church transfers. Its clergy will be co-vocational and willing to equip believers for their lives on Monday. It will be embedded in the marketplace, dual-using their facilities for their own sustainability and the flourishing of the local economy.”
Svetlana Papazov, Church For Monday: Equipping Believers for Mission at Work

“Church for Monday is a breakthrough book for ministry leaders willing to take innovative risks to reach their communities, and a must-read for anyone who longs to see the Good News reach beyond Sunday Church into a waiting, 7-day-a-week world.”
Dr. Jodi Detrick

“Church for Monday is a book that will awaken your imagination and ignite a passion in your heart to close the gap between faith and work. This book will help you see the people you interact with each day as more than just casual acquaintances, but as those whom God has placed in your life to experience His love.”
Jeff Greer, Senior Pastor

“WEALTH OR PEACE NEVER SATIATES THE BRAIN
THOUGHTS DEMAND THEIR OWN MARKETPLACE

दिमाग़ को सुकूँ ना दौलत ही चाहिए
सोच को अपना अलग बाज़ार चाहिए

DEEMAG KO SUKOON NA DAULAT HI CHAHIYE
MERI SOCH KO APNA ALAG BAAZAAR CHAHIYE”
Vineet Raj Kapoor
