  • Some analysts have wondered why uninsured people would purchase health insurance as the result of a mandate (Cassidy, 2010; Kling, 2010). After all, for many people the penalty would cost less (at least in the very short-term) than a policy. Health insurance mandates differ from some other requirements, such as the requirement to pay taxes: In exchange for compliance, enrollees individually receive a tangible good—health insurance—that they value. Health economics provides a framework for considering how changes in the price of health insurance affect coverage.

  • The economy continues to undergo structural change as it shifts from being dominated by the agricultural sector. The shares of the service and industry sector in real GDP have increased over the last three decades, whereas agriculture accounts for little more than 10% today compared to 25% in the mid-1970s. Because of the widely diverging labour productivities in the different sectors and significant employment of unpaid family workers in agriculture these changes are not fully reflected in the sectors’ shares in employment.

  • We posit that the Russian fiscal system presents noteworthy shortcomings relative to the Chinese system. These include lack of transparency in the capture of energy revenues, lack of integration of fiscal expenditures into a unified Treasury system, and massive implicit subsidies in relationships between producers and both national and sub- national governments. Further, we argue that, at least in the rapidly-growing coastal provinces of China, the public sector in China is moving more rapidly than in Russia toward a greater orientation to growth-supporting activities.

  • Reasonable as they might seem, the stakeholder arguments with respect to practitioneroriented research do not hold up under scrutiny. There is no self-evident relationship between lack of theory in a discipline and the ability to undertake research/consultancy for industry in marketing or elsewhere (Grey, 2001).

There have been approximately 30,000 reported cases of people living with HIV in the Pacific, but this figure is under-representative due to limited surveillance capacity across the region. Notably, cases from Papua New Guinea make up a significant majority of the total cases detected in the Pacific—from 21% in 1989 to over 99% in 2008.

  • The grade of an endometrioid adenocarcinoma is based on how much the cancer cells form glands that look like the glands found in normal, healthy endometrium. In lower- grade cancers (grades 1 and 2), more of the cancer cells form normal-looking glands. In higher-grade cancers (grade 3), more of the cancer cells are kind of jumbled up and do not form normal glands. Higher grade cancers tend to grow faster and are more likely to spread than lower grade cancers. Uterine carcinosarcoma (CS) is another cancer that starts in the endometrium and is covered here.
