When States Go Broke collects insights and analyses from leading academics and
practitioners who discuss the ongoing fiscal crisis among the American states. No
one disagrees with the idea that the states face enormous political and fiscal challenges.
There is, however, little consensus on how to fix the perennial problems
associated with these challenges. This volume fills an important gap in the dialogue
by offering an academic analysis of the many issues broached by these debates.
A valuable study of past policy failures and future policy options, the book is primarily aimed at policy-makers and students of rural development.

The key for us is to identify better-qualified customers in the first stage and then to convert a greater number of these to signed contracts.
Denise had only one question: “Why did you charge the costs of the 70 customers you failed to convert to the 10 that you sold?” Dave answered, “Actually, initially we broke out the cost of the 70,...
The growth of the Internet, which I have been involved in, and the growth of mobile
telephone services, which NTT DoCoMo has been a leader in, have been peculiarly interlinked
and at the same time separate. The Internet is a lab experiment that broke free, and
finds itself in a world of its own contriving, which it often does not understand. The mobile
telephone world was developed for commercial purposes, and is in many respects the son of
its father, the wired telephone system.

take his pound of Antonio’s flesh without shedding “one drop of Christian
blood”: blood had not been specified as part of the bargain.

your words, your words don't mean a damn thing!
This may be a new idea for you, or not. It doesn't
matter! Aligning our intentions with our actions is something

your potential, get out of debt, and get ahead in life. It
is something you can learn, but in exchange you have to
give something up.

Practitioner, and David Maister’s work, especially his 1993 book, Managing
the Professional Service Firm.
