"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, nuclear weapons proliferation, 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 requested $801.7 million for FY2008, nearly 30% above the FY2007 funding level. The request would have boosted funding for the Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI) from $167.5 million in FY2007 to $395.0 million in FY2008. The FY2008 omnibus appropriations act holds AFCI to $181 million and shifts the mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel program-totaling $281 million-to the nuclear energy program from the nuclear nonproliferation program. That brings the nuclear energy total to $970.5 million ($961.7 million with an across-the-board rescission), about 20% above the request. An additional $75.9 million provided in the Other Defense Activities account brings the Office of Nuclear Energy's total spending level to $1.046 billion ($1.037 billion with the rescission)

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 an estimated $231 billion in 2004. China is now the third-largest U.S. trading partner, its second-largest source of imports, and its fifth-largest export market. With a huge population and a rapidly expanding economy, China is becoming a large market for U.S. exporters. Yet, U.S.-China commercial relations have been strained by a number of issues, including a surging U.S. trade deficit with China ($162 billion in 2004), lax protection of U.S. intellectual property rights (IPR), widespread trade barriers, and its refusal to float its currency (the yuan)
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

This report provides an overview of the current status, trends, and forecasts for U.S. international trade. The purpose of this report is to provide current data and brief explanations for the various types of trade flows, particularly U.S. exports, along with a short discussion of particular trends and points of contention related to trade policy. The United States is now running huge deficits in its trade with other nations. Between 2006 and 2007 the U.S. merchandise trade deficit declined slightly from $838 billion to $8l9 billion on a balance-of-payments (BoP) basis and from $8l7 billion to $790 billion on a Census basis. A 2007 surplus in services trade of $119 billion resulted in a deficit of $700 billion on goods and services for the year-down $53 billion or 7.0% from the $753 billion deficit in 2006. While U.S. exports are highly competitive in world markets, these sales abroad are overshadowed by the huge demand by Americans for imported products. In 2007, U.S. exports of goods and services totaled $1,646 billion, while U.S. imports reached $2,346 billion. Since 1976, the United States has incurred continual merchandise trade deficits with annual amounts fluctuating around an upward trend. The current slowdown in the U.S. economy plus the declining value of the dollar have worked to reduce the deficit
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."
