You think you're having a rough day? Try being a rental bowling shoe...in New Jersey! Meet Jim. He began life as the skin of a cow. Jim had no idea that one day, he'd end up as a left-foot rental bowling shoe in Bayonne, New Jersey. Working at 12 Strikes Bowling World, he has to put up with long hours, sweaty-footed customers, splinters on the floor, the incompetent brothers who run the alley, and arrogant coworkers. But not everyone is rude to Jim. In fact, the many cockroaches that live in the alley are quite friendly, And then there's Sally, a piece of leather Jim met in his youth whom he dreams of finding one day. But to do that, he'll need to escape 12 Strikes Bowling World--a tall order for a short shoe. Adventures of a Bowling Shoe comes with 33 illustrations that bring the disgusting horribleness of the bowling alley to life! Great for the whole family. (Maybe not.)
It was at the fifth SEEP-Conference on Economic Ethics and philosophy in autumn 1997 that the organizational work of the seventh conference in 1999 was entrusted to the editors of this volume. Prof. Peter Koslowski, series editor of The Studies in Economic Ethics and Philosophy, SEEP, expressed the hope that the SEEP-Conference be held in the Far-East for the fist time would bring a new comparative aspect to economic ethics and philosophy. Further, the agenda of economic ethics seemed to increase its significance also in Japan and other Asian countries especially due to the spread of corruption in the government and business under the financial crisis that attacked these nations in the late 1990s. Though we chose "ComÂ petition, Trust, and Cooperation" as the general theme of the conference, this should include the collusion, distrust, and corruption as the opposite side of the medal. The conference was held on March 10-12, 1999 at the Kansai Seminar House of the Nippon Christian Academy, Kyoto, Japan. Fourteen papers were submitted to the conference. In addition to twelve papers that are printed in this volume, Prof. Ruisheng Wang (Capital Normal University, Beijing) read his paper on ethical problems in the context of Asian financial crisis and Prof. Agnar Sandmo (Norwegian School of Economics and BusiÂ ness Administration) did the same by his paper on societal aspect of the competition promotion policy.
