  • Measurement of efficiency started with Farrell (1957) who, following Debreu (1951) and Koopmas (1951), proposed a division of efficiency into two components: technical efficiency, which represents a firm’s ability to produce a maximum level of output from a given level of inputs, and allocative efficiency, which is the ability of a firm to use inputs in optimal proportions, given their respective prices and available technology. The combination of these two measures yields the level of economic efficiency.

  • These donors—and the parliaments that approve their budgets—grew impatient with “traditional” approaches to aid that produced limited results or benefited the rich more than the poor. They now favor results-oriented programs that seek to address the underlying structural problems of poverty or broad international development goals, rather than provide specific health services.

  • IN CHAPTER 5 WE DISCUSSED plants’ requirements for mineral nutrients and light in order to grow and complete their life cycle. Because living organisms interact with one another and their environment, mineral nutrients cycle through the biosphere. These cycles involve complex interactions, and each cycle is critical in its own right.

  • The large amount of water required for the production of plant substance is taken from the soil by the roots. Leaves and stems do not absorb appreciable quantities of water.

In humid countries, the rain that falls during the growing season is looked upon, and very properly, as the really effective factor in the production of large...
