The main aim of our new book, as reflected in its title, is to consider the
origins, development and current state of modern macroeconomics in a manner
appropriate for intermediate undergraduates taking courses in macroeconomics.
As such we have assumed that such students will already have a firm grasp
of basic economic principles and be familiar with introductory macroeconomic
theories and models as developed, for example, in textbooks such as those by
Abel and Bernanke (2001), Blanchard (2003), or Mankiw (2003).
The Current State and Trends assessment presents the findings of
the Condition and Trends Working Group of the Millennium
Ecosystem Assessment. This volume documents the current condition
and recent trends of the world’s ecosystems, the services
they provide, and associated human well-being around the year
2000. Its primary goal is to provide decision-makers, ecosystem
managers, and other potential users with objective information
and analyses of historical trends and dynamics of the interaction
between ecosystem change and human well-being.

To make the theoretical research about roles of state management on higher education quality, analyze and assess the impacts of state management on higher education quality in Vietnam then to propose solutions to improve the current state management on higher education quality in Vietnam.
The evolution of solid-state circuit technology has a long history within a relatively
short period of time. This technology has leaded to: the modern information society that
connects us and tools; a large market; and, many types of products and applications. The
solid-state circuit technology continuously evolves via breakthroughs and improvements
every year. This book is devoted to review and present novel approaches for some of the
main issues involved in this exciting and vigorous technology....
The information compiled in this report reflects evidence collected from
WHP policies in high-income countries, primarily within the European
and North American regions. The scarcity of information and case
studies from low- and middle-income countries was highlighted as an
important gap in the current knowledge that needs to be addressed.
Despite the limits of the available evidence, all stakeholders are
encouraged to develop and implement WHP policies and programmes
tackling unhealthy diets and physical inactivity....
The thesis is based on hypotheses that current provisions on Decentralization of State budget management in Vietnam today is not relevant and insufficient, the effectiveness of State budget management is then not high. Therefore, the researching purpose and task of the thesis is to gather information, prove and find solutions for more appropriated decentralization of budget management in Vietnam, bringing higher effectiveness in the management of State budget.
Bonds will play a crucial role in financing the transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy. Investor interest in the asset class is growing, but what is the current investment opportunity already out there?
This report, commissioned by the HSBC Climate Change Centre of Excellence and prepared by the Climate Bonds Initiative, presents a first estimate of the outstanding global bond market size linked to key climate change themes, and examines future drivers and trends in the short term.
The term usually used to describe the way insurance companies decide
when to pay benefits is “benefit triggers.” This term refers to the criteria
and the methods that the insurance company uses to evaluate when you
are eligible for benefits, and the conditions you must meet to receive
benefits. This is an important part of a long-term care insurance policy.
Look at it carefully as you shop. The policy and the outline of coverage
usually describe the benefit triggers. Look for a section called “Eligibility for
the Payment of Benefits” or simply “Eligibility for Benefits.

Traditional estimates that often find minimum wage disemployment effects include
controls for state unemployment rates and state- and year-fixed effects. Using CPS
data on teens for the period 1990–2009, we show that such estimates fail to account
for heterogeneous employment patterns that are correlated with selectivity among
states with minimum wages. As a result, the estimates are often biased and not
robust to the source of identifying variation.
Operationally, the problem is that, as noted earlier, while value-based management provides a criterion for strategies
to be selected and evaluated, it does not say how these strategies can be constructed. Before a strategy can be
put forward for SVA, a method for identifying the need for strategic change must exist. Then there must be a
process of constructing strategic options that have prospects of creating competitive advantage and enabling the
business to generate cash ﬂows that exceed costs including the cost of capital.
Alberta’s energy industry has been using the technology
for more than 20 years as a method of producing oil from
depleted fields. That means Alberta has the current
technology and experience needed for wider-scale
implementation. We also know CCS has the potential to
significantly reduce Alberta’s industrial GHGs—particularly
in the oil sands.

We analyze data from the 1993 Indonesian Family Life Survey (IFLS1), distinct in its
collection of a broad array of current and retrospective socio-economic and health information
among individuals, households, and communities2
. The selection of households is
representative of 83% of the Indonesian population, thus capturing the cultural and economic
diversity among Indonesia’s regional populations.
We consider a new subproblem of unsupervised parsing from raw text, unsupervised partial parsing—the unsupervised version of text chunking. We show that addressing this task directly, using probabilistic ﬁnite-state methods, produces better results than relying on the local predictions of a current best unsupervised parser, Seginer’s (2007) CCL. These ﬁnite-state models are combined in a cascade to produce more general (full-sentence) constituent structures; doing so outperforms CCL by a wide margin in unlabeled PARSEVAL scores for English, German and Chinese. ...
