Hottest Downloads All Time
Particularly since my SAGE Encyclopedia of War Entries came out in October 2016, my international downloads from my academia.edu website have tripled. Here are the hottest papers, mainly since then and since my Nobel Peace Prize nomination in early 2016. USA interest has stayed about the same, but international interest has exploded. These are listed by title first, then downloads, then views, then percentage of downloads per view. Ranked by downloads, some long standing articles have as many downloads as the end of the list, but rank low on percentage so are not included. These eight are the hotties that you may have missed and want to take a second look at. They cover a good cross section of my most important work.
Military Economy, Direct 11, 15 pages, 54/65=83%
Here are the realities of the military economy, simply by studying the historical data looking for the obvious patterns, with a huge boost from Ruth Sivard’s bar charts. Economists have talked themselves out of the scientific method as a physicist or engineer would understand it. They are unfortunately convinced that a scientific analysis of the historical data can never lead to a science of economics. Their belief system has stopped them from making the progress I easily made as an engineer.
SAGE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF WAR, 6 pages, 50/93=54%
Releasing this last October 2016 lead to a tripling of the rate of international downloads the last six months, as the combination of peer review and the Nobel Peace Prize nomination boosted my international credibility. I am holding back some of my best work for release in a comprehensive book, as piecemeal release only benefits certain specialized publications and not the general understanding.
High Interest Releases, 12 pages, 23/36=64%
Readers have scoured the older releases for a few good gems. Here they are, a motley lot, but with very interesting implications for understanding our world and my discoveries better. I especially like the one on how civilizations evolve with temperature changes. https://www.academia.edu/29770996/HIGH_INTEREST_Releases_2013-2014_12p
History Presidents Military Economy, 3 pages, 21/34=62%
I received multiple requests for an article on this subject, but I have refrained to accumulate more interest in a book. Nevertheless, this is a good beginning on why one advisor has recommended that I concentrate on publishing with the economic historians. The Great Depression and World War II are especially significant. https://www.academia.edu/4044532/HISTORY_Presidents_Military_Economy_1910-2009_3p._2013
Framework for Academic Class, 6 pages, 20/60=33%
This outlines the basics of a class taught around this material, including subjects for about 30 class periods, my own multidisciplinary background that made this all possible, and a summary of the 13 key high correlations that define the general subject matter.
Militarism Control Empire Social Decay, 6 pages, 18/50=36%
This is where I begin the discussion of the social decay of empire, linking the multiple lines of fracture of the society with the whole process of depleting the economic engine of the society as the first domino in a series of important dominoes that fall together.
SAGE Military Keynesianism, 5 pages, 10/27=37%
This second SAGE encyclopedia of war entry has been recommended by an oil country former finance minister with one million views on his academia.edu website. Explains the main flaw in Keynes’ theory, the assumption that non-productive work still can stimulate the economy.
Wars, Coldest Year, 2 pages, 8/21=38%
Looking over several of the earth cycle press releases, this one has stood out as a very interesting finding that major wars tend to break out at the end of two or three year cooling spells. Of course, this also happens after the 27 years of plenty have creating a new world order, and, as that prosperity begins to fade tensions are at a peak.
Still, I personally recommend these 9 pages for better understanding about the global warming cycle:
