CARRIN decided that he could trace his present mood to Miller's suicide last week. But the knowledge didn't help him get rid of the vague, formless fear in the back of his mind. It was foolish. Miller's suicide didn't concern him. But why had that fat, jovial man killed himself? Miller had had everything to live for—wife, kids, good job, and all the marvelous luxuries of the age. Why had he done it? "Good morning, dear," Carrin's wife said as he sat down at the breakfast table. "Morning, honey. Morning, Billy." His son grunted something. You just couldn't tell about...

In recent years, however, major changes have greatly diminished the city’s
ability to both retain and create a sizable middle class. Even as the inflow of
new arrivals to New York has surged to levels not seen since the 1920s, the cost
of living has spiraled beyond the reach of many middle class individuals and,
particularly, families. Increasingly, only those at the upper end of the middle
class, who are affluent enough to afford not only the sharply higher housing
prices in every corner of the city but also the steep costs of child care and private
schools, can afford...

imprisonment considerably higher than for men’s imprisonment.

Most respondents knew that high inflation meant the cost of living was increasing, suggesting an
awareness of simple economic terms. It appears that in most countries people were more likely to know the
definition of inflation than know what impact it has on their spending power, but in Armenia considerably
more people understood the time value of money than recognised the definition.
The various diversification questions used in different countries proved to be challenging.
But in Africa, microfinance has caught on more slowly than
in other regions of the developing world. While it has made
some inroads, primarily in urban areas, most Africans, who
live off the land and in small towns and villages, have yet
to be reached. Until very recently, the cost of bringing
financial services – even microfinance services – to remote
parts of Africa has been prohibitive, and the logistics of
doing so daunting.

“Housing Our Elders” (1999) uses a supplement to the 1995 AHS on home
accessibility needs and modifications to develop a baseline of information on elderly
housing conditions, needs, and strategies. It is found that “overall, older Americans are
among the best housed citizens of a well-housed Nation”. However, “millions of elderly
households continue to live in housing that costs too much, is in substandard condition,
or fails to accommodate their physical capabilities or assistance needs”.

The first years of independence in Estonia were not only marked by an increase in the cost of
living, inflation and confusion brought along by the reorganisation of state structures, but also by
a decline in the business culture. For people who began their business activities during the first
half of the 1990s, it was practically impossible to avoid contacts with criminal groups – the socalled
local mafia, consisting mostly of immigrants from the former Soviet Unio
