On Fiscal Discipline and the Choice of Exchange Rate Regine This result conflicts with a well-known recent result from Hoxby (2000a), who
argues that metropolitan areas with less centralized educational governance, and therefore

portion of Hoxbys data, and find reason to suspect the validity of her conclusions.

UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY YOUTH SUBSTANCE USE AND HUMAN CAPITAL FORMATION In this chapter, I use data on school assignments and outcomes of students across
schools within different metropolitan housing markets to assess parents revealed
preferences. To preview the results, I find little evidence that parents use Tiebout choice to
select effective schools over those with desirable peers, or that schools are on average more
effective in markets that offer more choice.
Stressful life events such as trauma, loss of a loved one,
a diicult relationship or any stressful situation—whether
welcome or unwelcome—oten occur before a depressive
episode. Additional work and home responsibilities, caring
for children and aging parents, abuse, and poverty also may
trigger a depressive episode. Evidence suggests that women
respond diferently than men to these events, making them
more prone to depression.
The state of the national economy has a profound effect on career interests and the choices
of prospective job seekers. This is reflected in part by the variation in the number of people
seeking admission to vocational schools, colleges, universities, and professional schools at
different periods in time. The variable economic cycle also influences, to some extent, those
considering health-care careers. Nevertheless, the aging population has greatly increased
the demand for professionals and paraprofessionals in the health-care field.

The late Neogene (the period between − 14 and − 2.4 Ma) is one of the most

ecosystems. It was during this time that the change took place from the
middle Miocene dominant subtropical forests that stretched across southern
Europe and western Asia to a more open but still wooded biotope that
now prevails in warm–temperate areas. This change in vegetation, which

Changes to the UCITS directive introduced in 2001 extended the scope of eligible assets for
UCITS to new classes of assets.
As a result, UCITS managers now invest in a much greater
number of countries and in more complex instruments than in 1985. As more investment
opportunities arise in different third country jurisdictions, the necessity to appoint sub-
custodians in these jurisdictions increases.
Despite the enlargement of eligible investment instruments, the UCITS Directive does not
define the conditions applicable in case a depositary delegates custody to a sub-custodian.
