Natural Resources and Economic Development explores a key para-
dox: why is natural resource exploitation not yielding greater benefits
to the poor economies of Africa, Asia and Latin America?
Part One examines this paradox both through a historical review of
resource use and development and through examining current theories
that explain the under-performance of today’s resource-abundant
economies, and proposes a frontier expansion hypothesis as an alter-
This briefing paper was commissioned by Ericsson (global provider of
telecommunications equipment and related services) and Zain (mobile operator
active in seven Middle Eastern and fifteen sub-Saharan African countries) in order
to describe the social and economic impact that mobile communication is having in
Sudan. The paper aims to give a concise overview of the key economic and social
effects of mobile telephony in Sudan and the social and economic development case
for continued investment in telecommunications infrastructure by foreign companies.
As a matter of fact, all key economic questions and problems arise because human wants exceed the
resources available to satisfy them. Our inability to satisfy all our wants is called scarcity. Faced with
scarcity we must make choices. We must choose the available alternatives. Therefore, economics as a
science can be defined as follows:
The implementation of the thesis is aimed to: Designing a model for evaluation of the competitiveness of the garment firms which is applicable to the scope of the study; Building a model for analysis of factors affecting the competitiveness of the garment firms; Identifying the current and predictable status of the competitiveness of garment enterprises in the region when compared with each other and with garment firms outside of the region.
Part II of this book focuses on financial markets, markets in which funds are trans-
ferred from people who have an excess of available funds to people who have a short-
age. Financial markets such as bond and stock markets are crucial to promoting
greater economic efficiency by channeling funds from people who do not have a pro-
ductive use for them to those who do. Indeed, well-functioning financial markets are
a key factor in producing high economic growth, and poorly performing financial
markets are one reason that many countries in the world remain desperately poor.
The most informative dictionary of economics available, the Routledge Dictionary of
Economics avoids the tendency to indulge in long-winded definitions of the major
concepts and provides students with a lucid, comprehensive and accurate guide to the
discipline. Employing the key feature of further reading with many of the terms, the
book uses the subject classification system defined by the Journal of Economic Literature
and The Economic Journal.
Few branches of economics have wielded as much influence on the world of policy as development economics. Virtually every major development strategy of the last 50 years is associated with some pioneering research that provided its intellectual underpinnings. Consider some of the key milestones. The dominant import substitution policies of the 1950s and 1960s were the practical realization of the ideas of Prebisch (1959) and Singer (1964) and were based on the famous Prebisch-Singer thesis on the declining terms of trade for primary products and the dynamic benefits of manufacturing. ...

Costing of physical activity programmes in primary prevention: a review of the literature
Silke B Wolfenstetter1 and Christina M Wenig1,2*
Abstract This literature review aims to analyse the costing methodology in economic analyses of primary preventive physical activity programmes. It demonstrates the usability of a recently published theoretical framework in practice, and may serve as a guide for future economic evaluation studies and for decision making.
Economics is the study of how human beings coordinate their wants and desires, given the decision-making mechanisms, social customs, and political realities of the society.One of the key words in the definition of the term “economics” is coordination.
The annual meeting at Jackson Hole always provides a valuable opportunity to
reflect on the economic and financial developments of the preceding year, and recently

childcare was most frequently mentioned as a key component of any support to young
mothers, for example. CED must consider the long-term benefits for women to improve
their wages and economic security by building transferable skills that are valued in the
economy. Whenever possible, these should be guided and led by young women
themselves, who identified that they wish to have the opportunity to lead the next
generation of youth.
This study found that many of the supports young women are...
This book has two parts. The first part talks about general characteristics of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) as well as common steps that have to be taken during the accession process. Theoretical studies related to the WTO activities are also presented. Finally, Part I of this book discusses one of the most useful methods of examining economic consequences of being WTO member, namely Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) Models. Part II continues analysis and shows application of CGE model to a specific case study.
This is the second part of the book that examines process and possible economic consequences of accession to the WTO. This part considers economic impact of the WTO accession and takes specific country as a case study, namely Ukraine. Computable General Equilibrium model for Ukraine is built and several scenarios are modelled. The facts that Ukraine has sufficiently large economy and accession was finalised quite recently should make it interesting to a wide audience.
