The papers in this book provide new information on several aspects of soil erosion
and applications of the National Resources Inventory (NRI). They were commissioned
following a planning workshop in July 1984 and were presented in December 1984
during a national convocation, “Physical Dimensions of the Erosion Problem.” The
workshop and convocation were held by the National Research Council's Board on
Agriculture in response to a request from the Soil Conservation Service of the U.S.

European national policy-makers broadly agree on the core objectives that their
health care systems should pursue. The list is strikingly straightforward: universal
access for all citizens, effective care for better health outcomes, efficient use of
resources, high-quality services and responsiveness to patient concerns. It is a
formula that resonates across the political spectrum and which, in various,
sometimes inventive, configurations, has played a role in most recent European
national election campaigns...

The field of macroeconomic theory has evolved rapidly over the last quarter
century. A quick glance at the discipline’s leading journals reveals that virtually
the entire academic profession has turned to interpreting macroeconomic
data with models that are based on microeconomic foundations. Unfortunately,
these models often require a relatively high degree of mathematical sophistication,
leaving them largely inaccessible to the interested lay person (students,
newspaper columnists, business economists, and policy makers).
Changes in the use of land reflect a variety of environmental and social factors, necessitating an equally varied suite of data to be used for effective analysis. While remote sensing, both from satellites and air photos, provides a central resource for study, socio-economic surveys, censuses, and map sources also supply a wealth of valid information. Land Use Change: Science, Policy and Management presents spacial theories and methodologies that support an integrated approach to the analysis of land use change.
Environmental and Natural Resource Economics takes a policy-oriented approach, introducing economic theory in the context of debates and empirical work from the field. Readers will gain a global perspective of both environmental and natural resource economics.
The role of interest rate in the determination of investment and, hence economic
growth, has been a matter of controversy over a long period of time. Yet, what constitutes an
appropriate interest rate policy still remains to be a puzzling question. Until the early 1970s,
the main line of argument was that because the interest rate represents the cost of capital, low
interest rates will encourage the acquisition of physical capital (investment) and promotes
economic growth. Thus, during that era, the policy of low real interest rate was adopted by ...

BAD GUY NOTICE: I only scanned this book to help my fellow students. If you like the book, go buy it. However, if you can't afford it, or you're simply too tired to go to the library every time you need to read it or copy pages from it, then don't complain about the quality.
Dear Mr Krugman, dear Mr Obstfeld, I honestly advise you to offer us a downloadable PDF-Version of your book.
The ideal economic policy, both for today and tomorrow,
is very simple. Government should protect and defend
against domestic and foreign aggression the lives
and property of the persons under its jurisdiction, settle
disputes that arise, and leave the people otherwise free
to pursue their various goals and ends in life. This is a
radical idea in our interventionist age.

The book is the outcome of a research project ‘Management of
Knowledge System in Natural Resources: Exploring Policy and
Institutional Framework in Nepal’ undertaken by ForestAction Nepal
with support from the International Development Research Centre
(IDRC), Canada. When we completed the research project with a set
of case studies and a review of theories related to knowledge systems
and governance and shared the findings with a network of readers, we
were excited to get very encouraging feedback....

This book is about the gender dimensions of natural resource exploitation and
management in Asia. It provides an exploration of the uneasy negotiations
between theory, policy and practice that are often evident within the realm of
gender, environment and natural resource management, especially where gender
is understood as a political, negotiated and contested element of social relation-

Recently public attention has turned toward the intricate interrelation
between economic growth and global warming. This book focuses on
this nexus but broadens the framework to study this issue. Growth
is seen as global growth, which affects the global environment and
climate change. Global growth, in particular high economic growth
rates, implies a fast depletion of renewable and nonrenewable resources.
Thus the book deals with the impact of economic growth on the envi-
ronment and the effect of the exhaustive use of natural resources as
well as the reverse linkage.
