War at any price? : the total economic costs of the war beyond the federal budget by United States ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost the United States in many ways. For the American Armed Forces, the human toll has been profound: as of November 9, 2007, 4,578 American soldiers have lost their lives, and 30,205 have been wounded, many of them gravely. The damage to our international reputation at a time when the United States faces grave security challenges all over the world has also been severe. And the full economic costs of the war to the American taxpayers and the overall U.S. economy go well beyond even the immense federal budget costs already reported. These "hidden costs" of the Iraq war include the ongoing drain on U.S. economic growth created by Iraq-related borrowing, the disruptive effects of the conflict on world oil markets, the future care of our injured veterans, repair costs for the military, and other undisclosed costs. In this report, the Joint Economic Committee estimates the total costs of the long war in Iraq to the American economy as a whole. The total economic costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan so far have been approximately double the total amounts directly requested by the Administration to fight these wars. The future economic costs of a prolonged military presence in Iraq would be massive. Even assuming a considerable drawdown in troop levels, total economic costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan would amount to $3.5 trillion between 2003 and 2017. This is over $1 trillion higher than the recent CBO Federal cost forecast for the same scenario, which counted only direct spending and interest paid on war-related debt resulting from that spending. The total economic cost of the war in Iraq to a family of four is a shocking $16,500 from 2002 to 2008. When the war in Afghanistan is included, the burden to the American family rises to $20,900. The future impact on a family of four skyrockets to $36,900 for Iraq and $46,400 for Iraq and Afghanistan when all potential costs from 2002 to 2017 are included
Understanding the economy long-term unemployment in the African American community ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report provides an in-depth look at unemployment, including long-term unemployment, among African American or black workers. The report shows that while African American workers have historically faced rates of unemployment and long-term unemployment higher than the overall rate, the unemployment problems in the African American community were exacerbated during the Great Recession. Additionally, a larger percentage of African Americans are currently "marginally attached" or have ropped out of the work force, relative to the population as a whole
The downgrading of DACOWITS how President Bush has failed America's women in uniform ( )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The report contains five key findings: The Bush Administration has cut the membership, staffing, and funding for DACOWITS (Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services) -- The Administration has revoked much of the committee's autonomy by giving control to the Pentagon -- The Administration has watered down DACOWITS' attention to women's issues -- The Administration has reduced the number of installations that DACOWITS visits each year and has hindered its effectiveness by requiring committee members to travel to installations in groups -- DACOWITS membership is now less diverse, and the member selection and replacement process is less transparent. The report also makes several recommendations for DACOWITS, including restoring the membership to between 30 and 40, removing family issues from its charter, and reinstating pre-2002 total annual operating budget levels, adjusted for inflation."--Congresswoman Maloney's website
2000 CENSUS: Coverage Evaluation Matching Implemented as Planned, but Census Bureau Should Evaluate Lessons Learned ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Matching A.C.E. and census records was an inherently complex and labor- intensive process that often relied on the judgment of trained staff, and the bureau prepared itself accordingly. For example, the bureau provided extensive training for its clerical matchers, generally provided thorough documentation of the process and criteria to be used in carrying out their work, and developed quality assurance procedures to cover its critical matching operations. As a result, our review identified few significant operational or procedural deviations from what the bureau planned, and the bureau took timely action to address them. Nevertheless, our work identified opportunities for improvement. These opportunities include a lack of written documentation showing how cutoff scores were determined and programming errors in the clerical matching software and software used to print field follow-up forms. Without written documentation, the bureau will be less likely to capture lessons learned on how cutoff scores should be applied, in order to determine the impact on clerical matching productivity. Moreover, the discovery of programming errors so late in the operation raises questions about the development and acquisition processes used for the affected A.C.E. computer systems. In addition, one lapse in procedures may have resulted in incomplete geocoding sections versifying that the person being matched was in the geographic sample area. The collective effect that these deviations may have had on the accuracy of A.C.E. results is unknown. Although the bureau has concluded that A.C.E. matching quality improved compared to 1990, the bureau has reported that error introduced during matching operations remained and contributed to an overstatement of the A.C.E. estimate of census undercounts
