Having worked in and traveled to many countries, most recently as the Ambassador
and Permanent Representative of Thailand to the United Nations, I have
seen people in different societies react to trauma in various ways. While experts
contributed to this important book, Trauma Psychology: Issues in Violence, Disaster,
Health, and Illness, I share my perspectives from serving the people of Thailand and
other nations and from my experiences in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami that
struck the cities and towns in the Indian Ocean rim, including Thailand.
This paper, an abbreviated version of which appeared in the Los Angeles Times on October 27, 1985, discusses mistakes in diplomacy made by the U.S. government following the capture of the four hijackers of the Italian cruise ship, the Achille Lauro, and the subsequent demands for their extradition. The author suggests that these actions may have done more to damage relationships with Italy and Egy......

When we began this project, it would have been beyond
our most radical beliefs to think that we would be
seeing a nation fraught with intense worry, anxiety, acute
stress disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, grief, and
depression less than three years later. So now, as we put
our finishing touches on this work, and following the
terrorist incursions, we regrettably have been forced to
see the graphic proof of the inherent value of psychotherapy.
Sooner or later it happens to even the
most conscientious employers. No matter
how carefully they hire workers,
how many incentives they give for strong
performance, or how diligently
they try to
a positive and productive work environment,
all businesses—large and small—
may one day have to deal with a problem
In the aftermath of World War II, the United States enjoyed an easy
preeminence in the world economy. Neither the US education system, nor
the US tax system, nor American savings habits were criticized on
grounds of international competitiveness. During the 1980s, however,
Americans took notice of their faults as Japan and the European Union
both seemed destined to challenge US preeminence. For different reasons
neither Japan nor the European Union prospered during the 1990s but the
US economy thrived on a technology boom.
Most Cambodian elders have both living sons and daughters. Reflecting the higher mortality of males,
including losses due to political violence associated with the Khmer Rouge period and its aftermath, the
average number of surviving daughters modestly exceeds that of surviving sons. Some differences in the
number of living children are evident according to sex, location and age of elders. Elderly men average
larger numbers of surviving children than elderly women, reflecting the fact that men are far more likely
to remarry than women in cases of marital dissolution.

In the aftermath of September 11, the Port Authority’s mission was in large part redirected to
the rebuilding efforts around the WTC site. The organizational toll on the Port Authority
during the last decade cannot be underestimated.
Since the dawn of civilisation human society has been shaped by its interaction with water—whether
too much or too little. Indeed, water is one of the powerful forces of nature that have formed the planet
on which we live. Floods are not new—they continually make news because of both tragic effects on
individuals and acts of heroism in the emergency. The impact of floods on people can be dramatic even
if there are no fatalities; pictures of rescue make good television material with stories told of bravery
and fortunate escapes.
The current economic crisis, which has arrested and even somewhat
reversed the skyrocketing price of housing, might offer short-term oppor-
tunities to some in the market for homes. But the mortgage meltdown and
its aftermath will not change the underlying dynamic: over the past three
decades, a wide gap has opened between the means of most New Yorkers
and the costs of living in the city. We have seen this dynamic play out even
during the last 15 years, as the local economy thrived and crime rates plum-
Ron Paul, Will Rogers and the Tea Party:
Great Depression Thinking For Our Times Introduction The Great Depression was a time that saw the emergence of a great figure, Will Rogers. His thought was forceful and single minded about what needed to be done to fix the nation in the aftermath of predatory behavior
The principal themes pursued in this book emerge from the great transformation
that the Latin American and the Caribbean economies experienced in the aftermath
both of the foreign debt crisis of 1982 and of the macroeconomic stabilisation policies
that vividly and painfully produced the so- called ‘lost decade’ of the 1980s.
Any book written about a subject which is rapidly changing necessarily
represents a ‘snapshot’ in time—the author’s attempts to describe the current
situation, and to predict what might be the state of things when the book is
published. In the case of this book, the speed of change is rapidly increasing as
the European Community (EC) nears 31 December 1992, the target date which
the Single European Act defines as that by which a Single Market in products
should be established.
Weishang Qu, head of modelling at the Millennium Institute, Washington DC, has examined the
World Bank’s new sustainability indicators, including genuine savings, and found that they “are
very much GDP dependent”. As genuine savings calculations start with GDP figures before
adding and subtracting certain values, they will tend to justify increasing real GDP/economic
growth as the central measure of development/progress.
Nations with strongly positive GDP are far less likely to obtain a weak or negative genuine
