  • The lead agency must also coordinate with other agencies and review security plans for infrastructure and utilities that could threaten event security (local water supply, water treatment facilities, electricity supply, communications grid, sewer system, computer systems, etc.).

  • On the other hand, scholars have argued that adopting environmental and social policies can destroy shareholder wealth (e.g., Friedman 1970; Clotfelter 1985; Navarro 1988; Galaskiewicz 1997). In its simplest form the argument goes that sustainability may be just another type of agency cost where managers receive private benefits from embedding environmental and social policies in the company, but doing so has negative financial implications (Baloti and Hanks 1999; Brown, Helland, and Smith 2006).

  • Nevertheless, it is a widespread assumption that end-of-pipe technologies still domi- nate investment decisions in firms. This is because there has been exceptionally little empiri- cal analysis directed to the determinants of the use of specific types of abatement measures - principally because of the paucity of available data. On the basis of a unique facility-level data set based on a recent survey covering seven OECD countries (Canada, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Norway, and the U.S.) we find a clear dominance of cleaner production in these countries: Surprisingly, 76.

  • ong-term interest rates have also risen slightly, but remain very low. Figure L 1.2.5 illustrates the revision to long-term interest rate projections underlying our current forecast. They have risen by about 0.2 percentage points in the US and the Euro Area since October, but remain largely unchanged in the UK. The rise in short-rates relative to long-rates has introduced a flat and even temporarily negative yield curve in the US, and the implications of this are discussed in Box 1.1 below. There exist a number of tentative explanations for the current...

  • This recent trend of the FDI into the Brazilian pulp and paper sector is probably connected to the general international trend for substituting long for short-fiber pulp that has been observed in the pulp industry. The international producers are searching for new mixtures of the two fibers aiming to increase the content of short-fiber pulp, which is the cheapest one.

  • Businesses can invest in modernizing equipment, but the impact of further declines in interest rates is likely to be limited. There is a large body of research that finds that investment is not very responsive to interest rates. 8 Furthermore, the rate of growth of equipment and software investment is already quite rapid, with growth averaging 19.9 percent from third quarter of 2009 to the second quarter of 2010. It does not seem likely that lower interest rates will increase this rate substantially, especially in a context where demand is contracting due to budget cuts.

  • In North America maize is widely utilised due to the suitability of the climate and advances in Genetically Modified (GM) technology which assures consistency of the crop. In areas where conditions for growing maize are not suitable or irrigation is not possible, other crops containing high levels of starch such barley and wheat offer good substitutes. These crops are not harvested until they reach a late “milky dough” stage of maturation so that the levels of starch are maximised.

  • PSI President and CEO Karl Hofmann recalls: “In just over 10 years, the YouthAIDS platform grew into a brand that drove attention and resources for HIV prevention and education. PSI, at that time, was a highly successful implementing organization but traveled below the radar with little brand awareness except among a small set of development insiders. By creatively marketing the HIV implementation arm of our organization in a more attractive and media friendly way, Roberts was able to give YouthAIDS real substance and to raise diversified funds.

Relatively few people consume wine. In the United States 40 to 45 percent of the adult population does not drink any alcoholic beverages.
