Generating electric power in the Pacific Northwest : implications of alternative technologies ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 157 libraries worldwide
The Pacific Northwest faces some critical energy issues over the next 20 years. There is significant uncertainty about energy supplies, energy prices, and the implications of competitive energy markets. As energy demands continue to rise, it is important for the states in the region to understand the risks and opportunities of different energy supply and demand options. This report examines the implications of using alternative power-generation technologies to meet future energy demands in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. Three scenarios are evaluated: (1) replacing 20 percent of new natural-gas-fired generating capacity with energy efficiency and/or renewable-energy generation (wind and/or solar power); (2) replacing the electricity produced by the lower Snake River dams with combinations of natural-gas-fueled generation, energy efficiency, and wind power; and (3) replacing the new electricity that will be needed by the most energy-intensive industries (primarily aluminum smelters) with energy efficiency. It is concluded that the electricity portfolio could be diversified with energy efficiency and renewable-energy sources such as wind and solar power without much impact on the economy, either positive or negative. Diversification could provide a way to hedge against future volatility in natural-gas prices and supply and hydroelectric capability, while also providing other benefits, both environmental and economic, to the region.
Coronary artery bypass graft surgery and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty : ratings of appropriateness and necessity by a Canadian Panel ( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 155 libraries worldwide
This publication provides the definitions used by a nine-member panel of Canadian physicians who rated the appropriateness and necessity of indications for the use of coronary artery bypass graft surgery and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, the methods by which the ratings of the panel were analyzed, and the final panel ratings by indications. The results of the panel ratings of appropriateness are provided in Appendix A. The results of the panel ratings of necessity are in Appendix B. This publication is part of a three-volume series. Two volumes report ratings for the appropriateness and necessity of performing coronary artery bypass graft surgery, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty and coronary angiography. The other volume provides the medical records abstraction form and guidelines for its use.
Coronary angiography : ratings of appropriateness and necessity by a Canadian panel ( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 155 libraries worldwide
This publication provides the results of a two-stage Delphi process by which a panel of Canadian physicians rated the appropriateness and necessity of indications for the use of coronary angiography. Chapter One, "Methods and Appropriateness Results," summarizes the methods by which the panelists rated the appropriateness of indications for coronary angiography and discusses how those ratings were analyzed. The actual ratings of appropriateness are provided in Appendix A. Chapter Two, "Methods and Necessity Results," summarizes the methods by which the panelists rated the necessity of appropriate indications for coronary angiography and discusses how those ratings were analyzed. The actual ratings of necessity are shown in Appendix B. Chapter Three, "Definitions Used by Panel in Final Ratings of Indications," provides the definitions that were used by the panelists in making their final round of ratings. This publication is part of a three-volume series. Two volumes report ratings for the appropriateness and necessity of performing coronary artery bypass graft surgery, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty and coronary angiography. The other volume provides the medical records abstraction form and guidelines for its use.

An assessment of the economic reform in Poland's state-owned industry by Keith Crane ( Book )
2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 91 libraries worldwide
This Note assesses the economic reform in Polish state-owned industry begun in 1982. It describes the system and traces out how the competing policy goals of the Polish government have served to generate a plethora of contradictory regulations that have greatly reduced the potential effectiveness of the reform. Using survey data from interviews with Polish managers, the Note finds that administrative constraints on the procurement of inputs, coupled with a distorted price and incentive system, not the psychological attitude of enterprise managers, have limited economic efficiency. Data on investment, employment, and productivity show that resource flows have been the reverse of what one would expect based on enterprise profitability, indicating that administrative decisions, not markets, continue to determine the allocation of goods and services in Poland.

The dimensions of power as illustrated in a steady-state model of conflict by Jack Hirshleifer ( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 83 libraries worldwide
This Note presents a theoretical analysis of the determinants of power, defined as the ability to achieve one's ends in the presence of rivals. The author analyzes two-sided interactions between contenders assumed to be rational and interested solely in maximizing income. Each contender strikes an optimal balance between productive activity (aimed at generating income through cooperation with the other side) and conflictual activity (aimed at appropriating the income produced by others or defending against others' efforts to do the same). The author discusses the factors determining power under three broad headings: (1) capabilities, including the resources on each side and the efficiency with which they can be used for productive or conflictual ends; (2) payoff functions--the equations that translate productive efforts into income and conflictual efforts into distributive shares; and (3) protocol, or the rules of the game, which determine what solution is applicable.
