Wealth of nature

  • NEARLY three decades ago, while engaged in the postgraduate study of American history, I began reading a book of nature writing by Joseph Wood Krutch, The Twelve Seasons, and immediately saw what was missing from my seminars. There was no nature in their history—no sense of the presence and influence of the land on past human experience, no soil, no countryside, no smell of fungus, no sound of spring peepers trilling from the marsh at dusk.

  • The annual labour of every nation is the fund which originally supplies it with all the necessaries and conveniences of life which it annually consumes, and which consist always either in the immediate produce of that labour, or in what is purchased with that produce from other nations. According therefore as this produce, or what is purchased with it, bears a greater or smaller proportion to the number of those who are to consume it, the nation will be better or worse supplied with all the necessaries and conveniences for which it has occasion....

  • Although the term "Waste Places" carries an implied meaning of "worthless," yet, interpreted in the light of Nature's methods, each region described, useless as it may apparently seem, possesses a definite relation to the rest of the world, and therefore to the well-being of man. The Sahara is the track of the winds whose moisture fertilizes the flood-plains of the Nile. The Himalaya Mountains condense the rain that gives life to India. From the inhospitable polar regions come the winds and currents that temper the heat of the tropics....

  • With the amount of genetic information available, a lot of attention has focused on systems biology, in particular biomolecular interactions. Con-sidering the huge number of such interactions, and their often weak and transient nature, conventional experimental methods such as X-ray crystal-lography and NMR spectroscopy are not sufficient to gain structural insight into these. A wealth of biochemical and⁄or biophysical data can, however, readily be obtained for biomolecular complexes.

  • THE first Edition of the following Work was printed in the 1 [ 1 ] end of the year 1775, and in the beginning of the year 1776. Through the greater part of the Book, therefore, whenever the present state of things is mentioned, it is to be understood of the state they were in, either about that time, or at some earlier period, during the time I was employed in writing the Book.

  • This book challenges the conventional wisdom that natural resource wealth promotes autocracy. Oil and other forms of mineral wealth can promote both authoritarianism and democracy, the book argues, but they do so through different mechanisms; an understanding of these different mechanisms can help elucidate when either the authoritarian or democratic effects of resource wealth will be relatively strong.

  • There are few areas of economic policy- making in which the returns to good decisions are so high – and the punishment of bad decisions so cruel – as in the management of natural resource wealth. Rich endowments of oil, gas and minerals have set some coun- tries on courses of sustained and robust prosperity; but they have left others riddled with corruption and persistent poverty, with little of lasting value to show for squandered wealth. And amongst the most important of these decisions are those relating to the tax treatment of oil, gas and minerals....

  • This is a work in progress. It is a work that has been in progress for at least the last ten years if not more. It is a work that has much more yet to come. The study of environmental harm is relatively new for most criminologists. For myself, in writing this book I have had to draw upon my own work over the last decade plus that of a relatively small handful of criminologists who are fellow travellers in this area. On the other hand, there is a wealth of material from other fields and disciplines that is entirely relevant and useful to a study such as this...

  • Ennore Creek becomes the pollution point in Bay of Bengal which influences the marine resources and productivity of the region. This coastal belt in the neighboring areas of the city is viewed as dumping sites for industrial effluents and disposing domestic waste (Arunagiri et al., 1998). The natural wealth of the creek is now being eroded to mere sewage channel (Jayaprakash, 2003). The Ennore Thermal Power Plant uses the river waters as coolant and lets out the warm water, in the Ennore Creek.

  • The use of private property rights to regulate natural resources is a con- troversial topic because it touches upon two critical issues: the allocation of wealth in society and the conservation and management of limited resources. This book explores the extension of private property rights and market mechanisms to natural resources in international areas from a legal perspective. It uses marine fisheries to illustrate the issues that can arise in the design of regulatory regimes for natural resources. ...

  • This book contains a wealth of useful information on current research on viscoelasticity. By covering a broad variety of rheology, non-Newtonian fluid mechanics and viscoelasticity-related topics, this book is addressed to a wide spectrum of academic and applied researchers and scientists but it could also prove useful to industry specialists. The subject areas include, theory, simulations, biological materials and food products among others.

  • Weishang Qu, head of modelling at the Millennium Institute, Washington DC, has examined the World Bank’s new sustainability indicators, including genuine savings, and found that they “are very much GDP dependent”. As genuine savings calculations start with GDP figures before adding and subtracting certain values, they will tend to justify increasing real GDP/economic growth as the central measure of development/progress. 22 Nations with strongly positive GDP are far less likely to obtain a weak or negative genuine savings result.

  • A long-standing tenet of distributed systems is that the strength of a distributed system can grow as more hosts partic- ipate in it. Each participant may contribute data and computing resources (such as unused CPU cycles and storage) to the overall system, and the wealth of the community can scale with the number of participants. A peer-to-peer (P2P) distributed system is one in which participants rely on one another for service, rather than solely relying on dedicated and often centralized infrastructure.

  • In 1776, Adam Smith wrote An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. Economists have been busily exam- ining the issue ever since. It is one of the most widely studied topics in the field of economics. One of the most common findings relates to how economic activity is organized. For example, capitalist coun- tries (those in which economic activity occurs on the basis of volun- tary exchange within private markets) tend to grow faster than socialist countries (those in which economic activity is organized by government).

  • This paper presents a new approach to bitext correspondence problem (BCP) of noisy bilingual corpora based on image processing (IP) techniques. By using one of several ways of estimating the lexical translation probability (LTP) between pairs of source and target words, we can turn a bitext into a discrete gray-level image. We contend that the BCP, when seen in this light, bears a striking resemblance to the line detection problem in IP.

  • Agriculture is taken in a broad sense to include crop production, range, and pasture lands. The output materials from these land areas, and forestry, are "bio-based" and are renewable through primary production from solar energy, atmospheric carbon dioxide, and terrestrial nutrients. The United States has significant resources in good soils, extensive natural water distribution, and a technology base that allows both resource protection and resource use to generate a wealth of renewable production every year....

  • Nonribosomal peptide synthetases serve as multidomain protein templates for producing a wealth of pharmaceutically important natural products. For the correct assembly of the desired natural product the interactions between the different catalytic centres and the reaction intermediates bound to the peptidyl carrier protein must be precisely controlled at spatial and temporal levels.
