  • One possibility is that states in which saving rates are highest introduced mandatory education earlier than others did. The main defence is that a dummy in the individual savings regression for whether the state ever imposed compulsory education is not significant. The interpretation of this observation is that states that imposed mandatory education do not have different intrinsic saving rates relative to the others. This is only partially convincing in countering the argument that what might matter is not whether a mandate was imposed but when it was.

  • There was a time of optimism and progress in the 1960s, when there was greater hope for a braver new world, and for progressive international ideas. Colonies blessed with natural resources were becoming nations. The locals of co-operation and sharing seemed to be seriously pursued. Paradoxically, the 1970s slid slowly into moods of reaction and isolation while at the same time a series of UN conferences offered hope for greater co-operation on major issues.

  • Tellingly, college students benefit by simply providing them with 8 minutes of instruction to revise globally before they are asked to start a second and final draft of a text (Wallace, Hayes, Hatch, Miller, Moser, & Silk, 1996). Although this could be interpreted to mean that the students lack the knowledge that revision entails more than local changes, the results of Myhill and Jones (2007) with 13-14 year olds render such an interpretation unlikely.

  • Computer systems today are more powerful and more reliable than in the past; however they are also more difficult to manage. System administration is a complex task, and increasingly it requires that system administration personnel receive specialized training.
