  • Recent experience illustrates this point. Consider the fact that the Fed cut interest rates sharply in response to two of the most serious financial crises in recent years: the October 1987 stock market break and the turmoil following the Russian default in 1998. Arguably, in retrospect, interest rate policy remained too easy for too long in both cases.

  • We also demonstrate that optimal portfolios of mutual funds are in°uenced substantially by prior beliefs about both managerial skill and pricing models. For example, consider two investors who both rule out managerial skill but believe strongly in di®erent models: one believes in the CAPM while the other embraces a four-factor model. If either investor is forced to hold the portfolio chosen by the other, the resulting ex ante loss is about 60 basis points per month in certainty equivalent return.

  • Fashola and colleagues (1996) examined whether Spanish-speaking second-, third-, fifth-, and sixth-grade students would produce more errors consistent with the correct application of Spanish phonological and orthographic rules than would English- speaking students. For example, the correct application of Spanish orthographic rules to the sounds of English words would result in using the letters “i” for the /ee/ sound, “qu” for the /k/ sound and “j” for the /h/ sound.

  • Human growth is a measure of the physiological processes associated with birth weight, genetics, and environment. Poor environmental factors, including inadequate health care and nutrition can prevent the attainment of one’s full growth potential (Martorell, 1999; Pelletier, 1994; Monckeberg 1992). Health care providers that practice high quality prenatal and child healthcare can directly influence the efficacy of the production of child health inasmuch as their practices have an empirical basis.

The distributions of deaths by cause are similar, with between 20 and 25 percent of all medically certified deaths attributable to causes associated with air pollution (respiratory illnesses and cardiovascular disease). Roughly the same percentage of deaths are attributable to infectious diseases and to perinatal causes. The distribution of deaths by age group differs somewhat between the NDMC and the National Capital Territory.

  • Carsharing (or short-term auto use) provides a flexible alternative that meets diverse transportation needs across the globe, while reducing the negative impacts of private vehicle ownership. Although carsharing appeared in Europe between the 1940s and 1980s, it did not become popularized until the early 1990s. For nearly 20 years, there has been growing worldwide participation in carsharing. Today, carsharing operates in approximately 600 cities around the world, in 18 nations, and on four continents. Malaysia is operating a carsharing pilot, with a planned launch in late-2006.

  • If demagnitizing is required, place a resistance in series with a switch across two of the three phases. A voltmeter should be connected to these phases to monitor voltage (figure 10). Start with approximately 200 ohms resistance and close the switch momentarily with the unit running at rated speed. The measured voltage will drop when the switch is closed and then return to a value less than the original when the switch is opened. If the voltage is still higher than the rated voltage, close the switch again. If the voltage is dropping in very small...

  • The effect of wealth on consumption has been studied extensively in the empirical literature on consumption functions. In this section we provide a brief overview of the findings of these studies. 2 Few studies have examined the relationship between consumption and total wealth for Australia. Tan and Voss (2003) have estimated the marginal propensity to consume (MPC) out of total wealth at 0.04 or, in other words, that long-run annual consumption increases by 4 cents in response to a one dollar increase in wealth. Bertaut (2002) puts this number marginally higher at 0.05.
