"This is a study of U.S. government policymaking during the 30 years of the Vietnam war, 1945-75, beginning with the 1945-1960 period. Although focusing on the course of events in Washington and between Washington and U.S. officials on the scene, it also depicts major events and trends in Vietnam to which the U.S. was responding, as well as the state of American public opinion and public activity directed at supporting or opposing the war."--Preface

Nuclear energy policy by Mark Holt( Book )

52 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nuclear energy policy issues facing Congress include the implementation of federal incentives for new commercial reactors, radioactive waste management policy, research and development priorities, power plant safety and regulation, and security against terrorist attacks. The Bush Administration has called for an expansion of nuclear power. For Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear energy research and development and infrastructure, the Administration is requesting $801.7 million for FY2008, a nearly 30% increase from the FY2007 appropriation. The request would boost funding for the Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI) from $167.5 million in FY2007 to $395.0 million in FY2008 as the primary component of the Administration's Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP). The House Appropriations Committee recommended cutting AFCI to $120.0 million while providing a total funding level of $835.2 million (H.R. 2641, H. Rept. 110-185). The Senate Appropriations Committee recommended $242.0 million for AFCI and $795.5 million for nuclear energy overall (S. 1751, S. Rept. 110-127). Significant incentives for new commercial reactors are included in the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (P.L. 109-58), signed by the President on August 8, 2005. These include production tax credits, loan guarantees, insurance against regulatory delays, and extension of the Price-Anderson Act nuclear liability system. Together with higher fossil fuel prices and the possibility of greenhouse gas controls, the federal incentives for nuclear power have helped spur renewed interest by utilities and other potential reactor developers. Plans for about 30 reactor license applications have been announced, although no commitments have been made to build the plants. No reactor has been ordered in the United States since 1978, and all orders since 1973 were subsequently canceled

China-U.S. trade issues by Wayne M Morrison( Book )

63 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

U.S.-China economic ties have expanded substantially over the past several years. Total U.S.-China trade rose from $5 billion in 1980 to $343 billion in 2006. China is now the 2nd largest U.S. trading partner, its second-largest source of U.S. imports, and its fourth-largest export market. With a huge population and a rapidly expanding economy, China is a potentially huge market for U.S. exporters. However, economic relations have become strained over a number of issues, including China's large and growing trade surpluses with the United States; it failure to fully implement its World Trade Organization (WTO) commitments, especially in regards to intellectual property rights (IPR); its refusal to adopt a floating currency system; and its maintenance of industrial policies and other practices deemed unfair and/or harmful to various U.S. economic sectors
U.S. international trade : data and forecasts by Dick Kazuyuki Nanto( Book )

48 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2004 the United States incurred a record merchandise trade deficit of $651 billion on a Census basis and $665 billion on a balance-of-payments basis (BoP). A surplus in services trade of $48 billion gave a deficit of $617 billion on goods and services (BoP) for the year -- up $121 billion or 24.3% from the $496.5 billion deficit in 2003. In 2004, U.S. exports of goods and services totaled $1.147 trillion, compared with $1.020 trillion in 2003 and $0.975 trillion in 2002. In 2004, U.S. imports were $1.764 trillion, compared with $1.517 trillion in 2003, and $1.387 trillion (balance of payments basis) in 2002. Year-to-date (August 2005), the trade deficit in goods and services, at $463.3 billion, was 17% higher compared to the same period in 2004. Since 1976, the United States has incurred continual merchandise trade deficits. They increased dramatically from $36.5 billion in 1982 to a peak in 1987 at $159.6 billion. The deficit dropped to $74.1 billion in 1991 but rose to $436.1 billion in 2000 and to $532 billion in 2003. (Census basis). Overall U.S. trade deficits reflect a shortage of savings in the domestic economy and a reliance on capital imports to finance that shortfall. Capital inflows serve to offset the outflow of dollars to pay for imports. Movements in the exchange rate also help to balance trade. The rising trade deficit (when not matched by capital inflows) places downward pressure on the value of the dollar which, in turn, helps to shrink the deficit by making U.S. exports cheaper and imports more expensive. Central banks in countries, such as China and Japan, however, have been intervening in foreign exchange markets to keep the value of their currencies from appreciating significantly (if at all) against the dollar. Trade deficits are a concern for Congress because they may generate trade friction and pressures for the government to do more to open foreign markets, to shield U.S. producers from foreign competition, or to assist U.S. industries to become more competitive. As the deficit increases, the risk also rises of a precipitous drop in the value of the dollar and disruption in financial markets. The broadest measure of U.S. international economic transactions is the balance on current account. In addition to merchandise trade, it includes trade in services and unilateral transfers. In 2004, the current account deficit rose to $665.9 billion from $530.6 billion in 2003. After reaching a peak of $160.7 billion in 1987, the current account deficit fell steadily through 1991, when it attained a surplus of $3.8 billion, before turning into deficit again. Higher oil prices and imports are expected to worsen the current account deficit, to $821 billion in 2005 and $922 billion in 2006. In trade in advanced technology products, the U.S. balance dropped from a surplus of $32.2 billion in 1997 to a deficit of $37.0 billion in 2004. In trade in passenger automobiles, the $98 billion U.S. deficit was mainly with Canada, Germany, Korea, Japan, and Mexico. In imports of crude oil, major sources of the $132 billion in imports were Saudi Arabia, Canada, Venezuela, Mexico, and Nigeria
Campaign financing by Joseph E Cantor( Book )

44 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Current law governing financial activity of campaigns for federal office is based on two principal statutes: the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) of 1971, as amended in 1974, 1976, and 1979, and the Revenue Act of 1971. These laws were enacted to remedy widely perceived shortcomings of existing law, the Corrupt Practices Act of 1925, and in response to reports of campaign finance abuses over the years, culminating in the 1972-1974 Watergate scandal. This report provides a summary of major provisions of federal law and a chronology of key legislative and judicial actions."
