  • Renewable fuels standard (RFS) policies are becoming a popular public policy mechanism for developing the market for renewable fuels in the transportation sector. During the past decade, U.S. states and several countries began implementing these more market-based (less command and control) policies to support increased biofuels production and use. This paper presents an overview of current and proposed U.S. state-level policies, as well as selected electric sector policies and international fuel standard policies. Current U.S.

  • This paper explores the emergence, consolidation and challenges to India’s small car path in the passenger car industry. The paper shows that this path can only be properly understood if we consider the interplay of a wider range of context conditions, including political, social, economic and infrastructural conditions. The paper shows that while the state has played a pivotal role in creating the path, it was the socio-economic conditions that channelled the political choices.

  • Within developing countries, health sector reform, often including decen- tralized priority setting, increases the information and advocacy burden for inclusion of SRH concerns. Central functions (like operating logistic systems and service quality control) require high-level commitment and a supportive policy and regulatory framework. The international discussion on SRH emphasizes an outcome-oriented public health approach but people react to multiple dimensions. Strong pas- sions and intensive debates continue on a range of issues: abortion, adolescent SRH and even family planning.

  • Globally, the most recent gender breakdown of social media usage (if we take Facebook, as an example) reflects that of real- world demographics, with the number of male and female Facebook users roughly equal. 5 This trend, however, does not hold in the Arab region, where only a third of Facebook users are women. 6 This ratio has not changed since the last edition of the Arab Social Media Report was published in May 2011, despite the fact that Arab women have been active on social media sites across the region throughout the “Arab spring.

  • Behrman (1982) find that child health and nutrition are positively associated with schooling, except in low-income rural areas. These references suggest the existence of bottlenecks that need to be addressed: low education does not allow other interventions to improve health care (as in Jalan and Ravallion, 2003) or poverty does not allow education to improve child health (as in Wolfe and Behrman, 1982).

  • Vertical integration. Although the delivery of health care is concentrated in the vertically integrated medical care sector (organized around primary, secondary, and tertiary care), many other essential child health service programs are located in the public and population health sectors (Women, Infants, and Children, or WIC; Head Start; and Early Head Start).

  • A truly distributed service would allow a client to use services by connecting to a broker nearest to the client’s geographical location. By having such local broker, a client does not have to re-connect all the way back to the broker that it was last attached to. If the client is not satisfied with the response times that it experiences or if the broker that it has connected to fails, the client could very well choose to connect to some other local broker.

  • It has been a decade since book-length writing about law and the Internet began in earnest. Ethan Katsh’s wonderful book Law in a Digital World (1995) is just over a decade old, and anticipated the flood. My first book, Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace (1999), is just under. Most of these early books had a common character. We were all trying first to make the obscure understandable, and second, to draw lessons from the understood about how law and technology needed to interact.

  • In this paper we show that nontraded goods (in ¯nal consumption and in retail services) play an important role in exchange rate behavior in the context of an otherwise standard open-economy macro model. In our model, nontraded goods have an important role even though °uctuations in the relative price of nontraded goods account for a small proportion of real exchange rate °uctuations. 3 Our quantitative study with nontraded goods generates implications along several dimensions that are more closely in line with the data relative to the model that abstracts from nontraded goods.

  • The dehesa is both a resilient and a fragile system; its resilience derives from the perseverance of its operators, and its fragility is its susceptibility to unfavourable economic factors that influence its profitability (Siebold, 2009). Livestock grazing is an integral management component of a dehesa and undergirds the conservation function of the system. The livestock component, including cattle, accounts for the largest fraction of revenue from the dehesa.

  • Our first investor, the dogmatist, has extreme prior beliefs about the potential for manager skill. The dogmatist rules out any potential for skill, either fixed or time varying, for any fund manager. That is, the dogmatist’s view is that ai0 is fixed at 1 12ðexpense þ 0:01  turnoverÞ and that ai1 is fixed at zero, where expense and turnover are the fund’s reported annual expense ratio and turnover, and where we assume a round-trip total trade cost of 1% (this prior specification is similar to Pastor and Stambaugh (2002a,b)).

  • Moreover, there is a contradiction between central approval and local priority-setting. This is almost a problem of the technocrats against the people. In some countries, the technocrats at the central level are excel- lent, and they want projects to be technically sound before they approve them. In other countries, the technicians are not as good. However, there may be a more democratic aspect here, because the technicians do not demand as much of the projects as the more technically advanced coun- tries do.

  • Real assets definitely play a significant part in the portfolios of both private and institutional investors. The magnitude of the capital and current investments in real assets can, however, be only roughly estimated as investors – as described – can choose different forms of investment, the market volume of which is often not transparent. The purpose of the investment is also not always clear. For instance, an owner-occupied property is certainly a real asset investment. However, the house owner does not necessarily purchase or build a home with the aim of making a profit.

  • Conceptually, we base our model mainly on the setups of Hannan (2006) and Brewer and Jackson (2006). In contrast to Hannan (2006), we use an index of fees instead of individual fees as the dependent variable and we modify the setup to control for greater heterogeneity in the data. Unlike Brewer and Jackson (2006), 6 the index composition is based on the actual distribution of services purchased by a representative bank client instead of imposing equal weights.
