Here is section 37 - Book III, Chapter XV: Of Money Considered as an Imported Commodity. Please give it a listen. Track length is 10:12.28, volume is 87.7 dB. This is my first go at non-fiction, any feedback happily accepted!

Thanks Mike! I will let you know as soon as I can, I am a little backed up so it might be a couple of days.

Section 37 is PL OK! You did a great job, Mike! It is different reading non-fiction as compared to fiction, but you did just fine!

Hi there,

This is one of my favorite books - yeah I'm an economist. I'm just getting a new, better mic and would love to do section 20 (Profits) & 21 (Rents)

Gauguin :D

all right, this is not an April Fool's joke, but as my first participation in the April's challenge I will broaden my horizon with an economy book. I will be humble and claim the smallest chapter though :oops:

47 Book IV, Chapter IV: Consequences of the Tendency of Profits to a Minimum, and the Stationary State

let's hope I understand enough to give my reading credibility

ah, I'm not shying away from a challenge ;) and actually, I am pleased to say, contrary to my fears, I did understand the chapter I was recording :lol: Mill's ideas were quite sound from what I glimpsed in this chapter.

here it is, hope all is ok :) Let me know if my intonation of a sentence is off or strange, because that may mean I did not understand it correctly after all. :?
