Over the past several decades, the increases in acquisition costs for U.S. Navy amphibious ships, surface combatants, attack submarines, and nuclear aircraft carriers have outpaced the rate of inflation. To understand why, the authors of this book examined two principal source categories of ship cost escalation: economy-driven
This report explores why, in recent decades, military fixed-wing aircraft costs have escalated beyond the rates of commonly used inflation indices, examining both economy-driven factors that the Services cannot control and customer-driven ones that they can. The authors found that this trend of cost increases is true for all types of aircraft

It is one of the most amazing countries in the world. The
Japanese call it Nippon or Nihon, meaning the source of the Sun.
Others call it the Land of the Rising Sun.We call it Japan. This
small nation of scattered islands off the eastern coast of mainland
Asia is often called the “Miracle of the Orient.” It has risen from
obscurity and self-imposed isolation to a position as a global
economic giant in little more than a century. Yet considering the
country’s physical geography, its history, and its huge population,
Japan should have been a huge failure.

The world has come a long way since Duke first started tumbling in early versions of
Netscape Navigator. Java has outgrown its humble origins as a cool way of providing
interactivity on Web pages and has found a new role as a major, server-side development
platform. The actual Java language has changed little in the intervening years, but an
enterprise-quality infrastructure has risen up around it.
The current explosion of the stock market is unprecedented by any period in its history. Since
the 1980s, the number of American households that own common stock has risen from
below 20 percent to just under half. And, this does not include households that hold stock
within their retirement plans or other indirect means. A significant portion of this growth is a
direct result of the proliferation of information available to the public through such new forums
as the Internet. Any information without explanation, however, is useless....

Growing numbers of governments and peoples around the world are now convinced
that if nothing is done, we will adversely and irreversibly affect the earth’s climate
to our own detriment. Yet even as global concern has risen, the prospect of an
effective collective response is not guaranteed.

learning and teaching mathematics for young children in hopes of catalyzing
a similar effort in mathematics....
Starting in the spring of 2009, a fast recovery in global equities and a rise
in house values in many economies (the euro area and Japan are exceptions)
were accompanied by a reduction in corporate bond spreads and other risk
premia (Graphs II.1 and III.2, top panels), though some risk measures have
meanwhile risen again in the context of the Greek sovereign debt crisis.
Reported VaR figures show that risk as measured by potential losses from
banks’ trading positions remains high (Graph III.2, bottom left-hand panel).

In the last two years, optical networking has risen into the public consciousness
in many different ways. It has become the next great technological
thing — businesses want it, service providers want to sell it, device
manufacturers want to provide equipment, and component manufacturers
are scrambling to supply pieces and parts to all of them. At the time of
this writing, an 18-month backlog on optical fiber and some optical amplifiers
exists because of the enormous and unanticipated demand for highbandwidth
Economics of Wireless Networks
The ﬁeld of mobile wireless communications is currently one of the fastest growing segments of the telecommunications industry. Wireless devices have nowadays found extensive use and have become an indispensable tool on the everyday life of many people, both the professionally and personally. To gain insight into the momentum of the growth of the wireless industry, it is sufﬁcient to state the tremendous growth in the number of worldwide subscribers of wireless systems.
Allocation is a cross-cutting challenge that has risen to priority status with the rapidly
approaching deadlines for the implementation of annual catch limits (ACLs) and accountability
measures (AMs). Allocation discussions and decisions are unique to each fishery and are shaped
by innumerable natural, social and economic factors. Despite these differences, all allocation
decisions address the fundamental question of how to distribute a limited renewable resource
among user groups. Allocation decisions introduce new challenges as well as opportunities.
Information about plant genetic diversity is necessary for the development of appropriate
strategies in conservation biology as well as in many other applied fields. From a basic
evolutionary standpoint, genetic diversity is assumed to be crucial for the evolutionary
potential of a species. Research programs that aim to investigate population structure
provide evolutionary insights into the demographic patterns of diverse organisms (Milligan
et al., 1994).
The private bond market remains much smaller than that for the government. The
outstanding issuance of corporate bonds has risen to almost 10 percent of GDP in 2011, but
the market is still very concentrated in short duration rates, with a limited investor base and
less diversified issuers. This suggests that the private fixed income market is not a significant
long-term financing source for non-financial corporations.
Indexation: Around 90 percent of private bonds are linked to the DI rate, resulting in little
incentive for active trading.
I had taken Mrs. Prest into my confidence; in truth without her I should
have made but little advance, for the fruitful idea in the whole business
dropped from her friendly lips. It was she who invented the short cut,
who severed the Gordian knot. It is not supposed to be the nature of women
to rise as a general thing to the largest and most liberal view—I mean of a
practical scheme; but it has struck me that they sometimes throw off a bold
conception—such as a man would not have risen to—with singular serenity....
