  • Depletion of mineral resources is one of the major problems in the world. We have consumed available resources as if they were unlimited, and at the same time we generate a huge quantity of waste, thereby contaminating the Earth. The amount of waste in our society reflects how much resources we consume. We, as modern society, create more products and packaging which is visually appealing but cannot be easily decomposed. Energy demands, resource limitations, and environmental pollution are closely linked.

  • While the discussion of abnormal profit generation in inefficient markets can apply to any number of asset classes that trade in private markets, most of these markets suffer from a lack of data availability. The real estate market is an exception in this respect, and therefore provides an excellent laboratory for constructing a systematic view of whether and how informed institutional-level investors can generate abnormal profits through active trading in a somewhat inefficient market.

  • As indicated above, while YouthAIDS highlighted PSI’s ability to manage consumer brands, this same discipline had not been applied to the corporate “PSI brand.” PSI’s core audience was defined as those who influence resource decisions for public health investments in developing countries. As a result, PSI had focused its branding and outreach efforts with multi- and bi- lateral government donors. PSI had not been historically marketed to a broader audience and was not well-known to the general public.

  • Other retailers would rather save the time and money spent on trade shows and have sellers with wonderful products contact them directly via email so that they can concentrate on ‘minding the store.’ If you decide to contact retailers directly be sure to send excellent photos and pricing information. All of the retailers we spoke to stressed the importance of the story behind the product. The stories of your products, your producers and the species you are working to conserve are very important in building a relationship with green consumers.

  • Third, the demand for medical goods has increased. Consumer expenditure on these goods more than doubled between 1982 and 1986 and by 1990 had reached nearly seven times the 1982 level. Hospital and general practitioner fees are paid by the state in China, so this growth in consumer spending suggests that the people are paying increased attention to their health, and have begun to buy expensive health-related products. As a result of higher incomes, dramatic changes in the Chinese lifestyle are occurring.

  • The greatest shift in consumer purchase behavior over the past generation has been from table wines to quality wines, particularly in traditional wine drinking countries. Relatively few people consume wine. In the United States 40 to 45 percent of the adult population does not drink any alcoholic beverages. Of the remainder, less than 20 percent are “regular” wine drinkers, and they account for most of the wine consumption. The occasional wine drinker, an additional 40 percent of the remainder, tends to like wine and might buy more of it if persuaded to do so (Moulton...

  • Serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) is the only biomarker routinely used for the early detection of prostate cancer, but it is not a perfect test. Although PSA is highly specific for prostate, an elevated level is not specific for cancer, being increased in benign hyperplasia and prostatitis (Pungalia, 2006; Bozeman, 2002). Consequently, the majority of men with an increased serum PSA do not have prostate cancer and thus undergo unnecessary prostate biopsies.

  • When evaluating the pruchase power of the population, additional variables than average income should be considered. In the case of Mexico, for instance, the purchasing power of many younger Mexicans is higher than income statistics might suggest at first sight: Unlike their Central European or North American counterparts, it is not uncommon for young Mexicans to stay in their parents’ home up to (or even beyond) the time when they get married. They thus save considerable amounts of money on rent which then is often spent on consumer goods....

  • The best practice today is to read data into the SAS environment for processing. For highly repeatable processes, this might not be efficient because it takes time to transfer the data and resources are used to temporarily store in the SAS environment. In some cases, the results of the SAS processing must be transferred back to the DBMS for final storage, which further increases the cost. Addressing this challenge can result in improved resource utilization and enable companies to answer business questions more quickly. ...

  • A major difference between this concept and Kornai’s notion of soft budget constraints lies in the ex-ante attitude of creditors. While creditors (in particular, the state) explicitly bail out unprofitable firms (this information is available ex-ante), the adverse selection in the second case is due to imperfect information: if the relevant information had been available to the creditors ex-ante, they would have declined to finance the project altogether (Schaffer (1998)).
