Access to ILO Databases at the International Labour Organization. The ILO’s main databases include: Labordoc, the library’s catalogue; ILOLEX database on international labour standards; LABORSTA database of labour statistics covering the economically active population, employment, unemployment, wages and related variables; NATLEX information on national laws including labour, social security and related human rights issues; ATLAS information system. We have seen capitalism when it is unrestricted. The financial collapse of 2008 was a direct result of the reckless and unregulated nature of our economy. Ayn Rand’s prodigy, Alan Greenspan (former Chairman of the Federal Reserve), even admitted after the collapse that he was wrong. Our economy could not self-regulate. The human need for greed is great and capitalism only spurs that. But, capitalism has also been great for increased standard of living among all members of society. It has its pros and cons, but one thing it should never be is unregulated. 72 Bree Cook et al, Victims’ Needs, Victims’ Rights: Policies and Programs for Victims of Crime in Australia (Research and Public Policy Series No.19, Australian Institute of Criminology, 1999) x. Modern university departments of political science (alternatively called government or politics at some institutions) are often divided into several fields, each of which contains various subfields. Vietnam watchers have acknowledged that the country’s one-party regime is in a difficult position politically, and an active alliance with either the US or China would bring about its own set of challenges, some existential. 2. Alan Brown, Modern Political Philosophy: Theories of the just society (Harmondworth: Penguin, 1986), p. 14, considers political philosophy to differ from political theory, as the first concerns finding rational grounds for accepting the latter, and thus leaves open the possibility that political theories are merely irrational assemblages. This, however, mistakes the practice of political theorizing, which also prioritizes rational analysis, for the object being studied. Michael Freeden Ideologies and Political Theory: A conceptual approach (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1996) argues that whilst political theory and philosophy have a large degree of overlap, the latter is primarily concerned with ‘evaluating … validity, and … offering ethical prescriptions’ (p. 6) whilst the first is more wide-ranging as it includes the study of ideologies, which involves identifying the interrelationships of core and peripheral concepts, and to locate these concepts spatially and temporally, exploring the cultural as well as rational controls on their adoption and development. However, as Freeden acknowledges, these criticisms of the absences in political philosophy are specific to the Anglo-American, analytic versions of political philosophy, rather than the canon of political philosophy as a whole. Consequently, Paul Kelly’s account is possibly more accurate; he argues that the distinction between political philosophy and political theory is ‘an institutional one: political philosophers are political theorists employed by philosophy departments and political theorists are political philosophers employed within government or political science departments’ (P. Kelly, ‘Political Theory—The State of the Art’, Politics, 26 (1) (2006), p. 47).
