Chomsky, N., & Barsamian D. (1994).  Keeping the Rabble in Line: Interviews with David Barsamian.
"Any form of concentrated power, whatever it is, is not going to want to be subjected to popular democratic control or, for that matter, to market discipline. Powerful sectors, including corporate wealth, are naturally opposed to functioning democracy, just as they're opposed to functioning markets, for themselves, at least. It's just natural. They do not want external constraints on their capacity to make decisions and act freely. It entails that the elites will be extremely undemocratic." (p. 242)
Kohler, H. (1992).  Kohler Economics.
"Although short-term involuntary unemployment may be viewed as a welcome vacation, prolonged unemployment wreaks havoc within the affected families. It erodes the self-worth of the affected individuals and possibly even their skills. Eventually, unemployment benefits cease, savings are used up, appliances, cars, and clothes wear out, and despair moves in. Various studies have linked rising unemployment rates with increased incidence of divorce, suicide, disease (notably cardiovascular failure and cirrhosis of the liver), crime, and more. The personal costs just cited, when sufficiently widespread, can tear apart civilized society." (p. 166)
