Sending your government a message : e-mail communication between citizens and government by C. R Neu( Book )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1995, RAND published a book exploring the feasibility and societal implications of providing "universal" access to electronic mail within the United States (Robert H. Anderson et al., Universal Access to E-Mail: Feasibility and Societal Implications, MR-650-MF). Among the nine policy conclusions and recommendations in that report were these: It is critical that electronic mail be a basic service in a national information infrastructure; it is important to reduce the increasing gaps in access to basic electronic information services, specifically, access to electronic mail services; there are no fundamental technical barriers to providing universal access to electronic mail services. This book explores the possibility for expanded citizen-government personalized electronic communication. Of particular interest are interactions between government agencies and individual citizens--interactions involving personal information, iterated communications between an individual and a government agency, and the use of a personal electronic mailbox for the individual. It provides an informal survey of current state uses of such communication, supplemented by two case studies of potential use. It also uses 1997 Current Population Survey data to update the electronic access trends in the United States that were highlighted in the 1995 study
Balancing state intervention : the limits of transatlantic markets( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The evolution of the international system; the gradual erosion of state control over industrial change, public action, and political authority; and changes in American and European economic, political, technological, social, and demographic conditions have created a wide array of problems that render the current environment quite unrecognizable from that of the Cold War world
The role of Southeast Asia in U.S. strategy toward China by Richard Sokolsky( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China's geopolitical ambitions and growing military capabilities and the Southeast Asian states' perceptions of a "rising China" will play a crucial role in shaping the future of Southeast Asia and the U.S. military posture in the region. The authors examine the role of regional states in developing a hedge against the possible emergence of an overly aggressive China. They find that rather than confronting a conventional attack, the United States and the Southeast Asian countries are likely to find a continuation of China's creeping irredentism and ambiguous threats. Southeast Asia is likely to prove a critical testing ground for a "third way" of dealing with China's rising power--what in other RAND work has been called a policy of "congagement"--That seeks to integrate China into the international system while both deterring and preparing for a possible Chinese challenge. The report recommends that the United States adopt an incremental approach to this hedging strategy, focusing on peacetime military engagement with Southeast Asian states, development of a more robust and diversified network of access arrangements, and strengthened military ties with the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam
The effects of the Tokyo round of multilateral trade negotiations on the U.S. economy : an updated view by United States( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The formal negotiation phase of the Tokyo Round of Multilateral Trade Negotiations (MTN) was concluded in Geneva on April 12, 1979, with 23 countries, including the United States, agreeing to a package of measures designed to reduce obstacles to international trade. Eighteen other countries endorsed only parts of the complete package. The agreements reached in Geneva included a multilateral reduction in t tariffs, the establishment of new codes of conduct for international trade, some reductions in barriers to trade in specific commodities, and reforms of the framework of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), the general set of principles that has governed international trade throughout the postwar period. In accordance with the terms of the Trade Act of 1974, which gave the U.S. President authority to negotiate changes in U.S. trade policy, President Carter has submitted to the Congress the Tokyo Round agreements and the legislation necessary to implement these agreements. The Trade Act stipulates that the Congress must approve or reject the agreements and the legislation without amendment within 90 legislative days. The agreements will enter into force for the United States when and if the implementing legislation is approved by both houses of the Congress. The Trade Act gives the President power to reduce U.S. tariffs without subsequent Congressional approval. Accordingly, only the nontariff parts of the Tokyo Round agreements require Congressional action
U.S. trade policy and the Tokyo Round of multilateral trade negotiations by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The multilateral trade negotiations (MTN) now underway in Geneva have become the focus of growing interest in U.S. policy toward international trade and, more generally, in the entire set of rules and practices that govern the conduct of international trade. These negotiations, in which 98 nations are participating, have as their goal the conclusion of multilateral agreements that will result in major tariff reductions, in substantial progress toward the reduction of a variety of nontariff barriers, and in general reform of the rules and procedures laid down for international trade in the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). This round of negotiations has been underway since early 1975 and is now nearing its conclusion. On January 4, 1979, the President, in accordance with the terms of the Trade Act of 1974, notified the Congress of his intention to enter into a multilateral trade agreement. Ninety days after this notification, the President may conclude a trade agreement. He will then submit the text of the agreement, along with the required implementing legislation, to the Congress for approval, and the agreement will enter into force for the United States upon enactment of the implementing legislation. The Trade Act of 1974 prohibits the Congress from amending the trade agreement after it has been formally submitted by the President. The terms of this agreement, however, are expected to be quite broad, allowing considerable leeway for interpretation. The exact content of the implementing legislation will be a matter for negotiation between the President and the Congress, and thus the Congress will exercise considerable influence over the ultimate effect that any new trade agreement will have on the U.S. economy. Events of the last few years--oil price increases, worldwide recession, international monetary instability, widely varying rates of inflation, and the emergence of some developing countries as exporters of manufactured products--have placed strains on the trading system, shifting patterns of trade and producing large imbalances in the flow of trade. Some of these same factors have had the effect of disrupting domestic economies and causing significant dislocation of workers. In these circumstances, it is not surprising that pressure for more restrictive trade policies is growing in many countries. Indeed, in the developed countries from which data are available, the last three years have seen a noticeable increase in official actions that have the effect of limiting imports. Although the primary goal of the Geneva talks is a significant liberalization of world trade arrangements, many see agreement in Geneva as necessary if the current liberality of trading arrangements is to be maintained. Without an agreement, these observers argue, it will be impossible for many governments to resist growing pressure for protectionist policies. For the most part, the "new protectionism" that is emerging has taken the form of nontariff barriers to trade. Thus, most attention at Geneva has focused on agreements governing such practices rather than on the tariff reductions that will also be part of any agreement reached in Geneva. Unfortunately, the effects of reductions in many nontariff barriers are very difficult to quantify and must sometimes be excluded from formal analyses of the effects of liberalized trade
The economic dimensions of national security by C. R Neu( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The end of the Cold War has shifted attention from military threats to other things that might negatively affect the people of the United States. High on the list of concerns is national economic security--the ability to protect or to advance economic interests in the face of circumstances that may threaten or block these interests. The United States is not economically isolated but an integral part of the world economy, doing business in world markets and influencing--and being influenced by--the international financial environment, economic policies, and commercial and financial infrastructure. Thus, enhancing international economic security enhances U.S. economic security--and its physical security, because some situations can escalate to the point that they require a military response. A strong military to respond to such a threat requires strong economic underpinnings--and economic instruments can serve as a nonmilitary form of defense, even as defense considerations can affect the economy
A new Bretton Woods : rethinking international economic institutions and arrangements : Rand Summer Institute by C. R Neu( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1944, an international conference was convened in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, to lay out a framework for international economic relations in the postwar world. The institutions that grew out of that conference --the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT)--have generally served us well. But today's international economic environment is much different than could have been foreseen in 1944, and the time may be ripe for a broad rethinking of international economic institutions and arrangements. Four fundamental policy questions underlie debates about the future nature and purposes of international economic institutions. First, should concerted efforts be made to stabilize exchange rates among major currencies? Second, has the expansion of private credit and capital markets eliminated the need for official sources of international credit? Third, do the GATT principles of nondiscrimination and multilateralism still provide the best basis for expanding world trade? Fourth, what aspects of economic regulation require international cooperation?

Gaining new military capability : an experiment in concept development by J. L Birkler( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The process of modernizing U.S. military forces is the focus of this report. This process requires reinvigorating concept development efforts, thinking broadly about alternatives, and pursuing concept development before decisions are made about which services, which platforms, or which technologies are best suited for accomplishing current or new military tasks. In February and March 1996, RAND convened a concept options group (COG), which included broadly knowledgeable technologists drawn from a variety of scientific and engineering backgrounds, experienced military operators, and senior analysts and planners. By focusing on two specific military tasks, the COG considered options for using technologies that could enable U.S. forces to perform an existing military mission better, perform it differently, or gain a new capability. This report presents highlights from the COG discussions as well as some suggestions for convening future COGs
Monitoring the changes in use of Medicare posthospital services by Andrea Steiner( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report studies patients in five selected diagnosis-related groups using a 20-percent random sample of all Medicare discharges in the 12 months ending June 1988. The report finds that female patients were more likely to use skilled nursing facilities (SNF) than men, though less likely to use rehabilitation care after a stroke; whites were more likely to use SNF care and less likely to use home health and rehabilitation care than non-whites; patients discharged from proprietary hospitals were more likely to use home health care than those discharged from not-for-profit or government-owned hospitals; and patients discharged from hospitals having a disproportionate share of Medicaid patients were more likely to receive rehabilitation care. There also seems to be a positive correlation between the prevalence of home health care use and the likelihood a patient will use rehabilitation care

Financial crises and contagion in emerging market countries by Julia Lowell( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores why some financial crises appear to be contagious, and why some financial markets in emerging market countries appear to be vulnerable to contagion whereas others are not. The authors analyze multicountry crisis episodes from January 1989 to August 1997 and develop four informal models of transition mechanisms: (1) "Economic linkages" describes the case where a foreign financial crisis acts as a common shock to countries with strong economic linkages to the country in crisis; (2) "heightened awareness" suggests that investors with incomplete information may ignore poor economic conditions in some countries until a crisis occurs somewhere else, at which point they dump their investments in those countries; (3) "portfolio adjustment" describes what happens when liquidity-constrained portfolio managers sell off other countries' assets in order to meet an expected increase in redemptions from a country in crisis; (4) "herd behavior" is probably the most widely accepted view of contagion, suggesting that investors abandon their investments largely in response to what they think other investors are doing. Finally, case studies of Argentina, South Africa, and Thailand illustrate the usefulness of the models

Defense spending and the trade performance of U.S. industries by Loren Yager( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

U.S. defense spending increased sharply during the early 1980s, especially in the defense budget categories of procurement and research, development, testing, and evaluation. Purchases from these categories are concentrated in a small number of high-technology industries. During this same period, the U.S. surplus in high-technology trade declined sharply. This report examines the effect of increases in defense spending to determine whether they contributed to the poor trade performance of high-technology industries. The authors develop trade performance measures to highlight the performance of sectors that are exposed to different degrees of competition for scarce inputs. Industries with good trade performance include plastic and rubber medical supplies, optical instruments, and missiles and space vehicles. Those with the poorest trade performance include iron and steel products and also service industry machines, yachts, and fabricated structural metal products. The findings suggest that, to the extent that increases in defense spending led to a higher budget deficit, they may have contributed to poor trade performance in the form of a higher overall trade deficit by increasing the value of the dollar. But the authors find no evidence that increased defense spending was particularly damaging to the trade performance of high-technology industries
Soviet international finance in the Gorbachev era by C. R Neu( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report was originally intended as a simple portrait of Soviet international financial practice: what kinds of international financial transactions the Soviet Union undertakes and who the counterparties to these transactions are. Since work began on this report in late 1989, though, the international financial circumstances of the Soviet Union have changed in important ways. In particular, the Soviet Union has gone from a first-class borrower, able to get the finest of terms in international credit markets, to what markets now perceive as a serious credit risk, able to borrow only with guarantees from Western governments. In addition to providing a profile of Soviet international financial activity, this report has necessarily also become a short history of the Soviet Union's reversal of financial for tunes
Toward a profile of Soviet behavior in international financial markets by C. R Neu( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report uses publicly available, unclassified information as background for an effort to describe the nature of and motivations for Soviet international hard-currency financial transactions. These include all Soviet dealings with the industrialized world outside the Soviet Bloc and most Soviet dealings with developing countries. The authors attempt to determine how much, with whom, how, and why the Soviets deal in international financial markets. In addition, they have aimed to assess the value of future research into Soviet financial dealings. The report (1) provides an overview of the Soviet hard-currency balance sheet; (2) assesses the completeness of current reporting on Soviet debts; (3) discusses Soviet assets; (4) examines the style of Soviet operations in international financial markets; and (5) outlines possible directions for future research
Medicare patients and postacute care : who goes where? by C. R Neu( Book )

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of an effort to understand better the "natural history" of episodes of care among Medicare beneficiaries, this report documents patterns of postacute care use by Medicare patients and explores some factors that may explain these patterns. The research suggests that there are factors unrelated to a patient's medical condition that determine the setting in which postacute care is given. These factors include economic and social circumstances, and characteristics of the discharging hospital. Specifically, whites are significantly more likely to use skilled nursing facility (SNF) care than nonwhites, whereas nonwhites are significantly more likely to use home health care than whites. A similar pattern is repeated at the hospital level: Patients discharged from hospitals with a "disproportionate share" of Medicaid patients are less likely to receive SNF care but more likely to use home health care than are patients discharged from other hospitals. Because SNF and home health care appear to be substitutes for each other, policy measures that affect care in one of these settings will probably affect care in the other
