Commanding heights : the battle for the world economy by Daniel Yergin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Episode two: Illustrates how economies with strict governmental control encountered serious trouble in the 1980s and how many leaders embraced the idea of "shock therapy," a rapid conversion to free-market capitalism. The program focuses in detail on how reform played out in several countries: Russia, Poland, India, Bolivia, and Chile, as they lived through the upheavals of rapid change, dealing with both the new freedoms and the new dangers of privatization, deregulation, and competition

Learning outcomes for the 21st century : report of a community college study by Cynthia D Wilson( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet describes a study that helped clarify the current status of community college efforts in defining and documenting student acquisition of 21st Century Skills (general education skills). This study is traced through four stages: (1) an exploratory focus group involving presidents from ten U.S. community colleges recognized as leaders in the learning outcomes movement; (2) a follow-up focus group with representatives from 15 community colleges, including two Canadian representatives, to achieve consensus on what constitutes 21st Century Skills; (3) a survey of the status of 21st Century learning outcomes practices in U.S. and Canadian community colleges; and (4) two institutional narratives describing model community college approaches to 21st Century student learning outcomes, one at Cascadia Community College (Washington) and the other at Waukesha County Technical College (Wisconsin). Outcomes included: (1) there is widespread attention on improving the process for determining what students are learning in community colleges; (2) community colleges are more likely to use "general education core" or "core competencies" to refer to 21st Century Skills; and (3) the stages of developing and institutionalizing processes to define student learning outcomes do not necessarily follow a linear progression. Appendices include lists of focus group participants and the survey. (Emh)
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 147 WorldCat member 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.

Generating electric power in the Pacific Northwest : implications of alternative technologies( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member 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 angiography : ratings of appropriateness and necessity by a Canadian panel( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member 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
Economic reform and the military in Poland, Hungary, and China by Keith Crane( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report compares the extent to which economic reforms in Poland, Hungary, and China significantly improved the operation of their economies. It also evaluates the reforms' effects on these countries' militaries, and vice versa. In general, reforms improved economic efficiency, but the improvements were most notable in the private sector; improvements in the state-owned industrial sector were marginal. All three militaries had more difficulty attracting personnel after the introduction of the reforms--private-sector opportunities became more attractive than military careers for more individuals. Increased pressures to reduce military budgets and operate the militaries more efficiently also accompanied the reforms. The militaries, in turn, affected the course of the reforms. In Poland and China, military intervention in politics retarded the implementation of the reforms

An assessment of the economic reform in Poland's state-owned industry by Keith Crane( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member 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 78 WorldCat member 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

Financing child care in the United States : an expanded catalog of current strategies by Anne Mitchell( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalog provides information on innovative financing strategies, primarily state and community strategies, being used successfully to fund child care in the United States. Five sections of the manual are devoted to profiles of programs using the following categories of strategies: (1) generating new public revenue for child care, including tax strategies, tax credits, deductions, and exemptions, and fees and lotteries; (2) allocating existing public general revenue for child care; (3) financing child care in the private sector, such as employer- and union-supported care and community child care initiatives; (4) financing child care through public-private partnerships; and (5) financing child care facilities, including using grants, bonds, and loans. The catalog's introduction describes characteristics of successful financing strategies for raising money for child care. Each profile describes a specific financing strategy, when it was initiated, the amount of funding it generates, how funds are distributed, what services are funded, and who is eligible for them. Additional locations using similar financing strategies are listed with contact information. Also in each profile are opinions and analysis of the pros and cons of each strategy plus lessons learned from the participants' perspective. Historical, political, and economic factor contributing to the success of an approach are included. Four appendices describe revenue-generation methods, outline tax strategies and governmental powers, and list key national organizations in child care and family support, and members of the National Children's Facilities Network. Contains 58 references. (Kb)

The Performing arts in a new era by Kevin F McCarthy( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the state of the performing arts in America at the turn of the 21st century? After decades of expansion, how are performing arts organizations faring? Has demand for live performances been increasing or decreasing? Are more Americans choosing the performing arts as a profession? And what is the likely effect of the Internet on the arts? The authors identify key trends affecting audiences, artists, arts organizations, and financing for all the performing arts. The most dramatic growth in demand for the performing arts has taken place in the market for recorded and broadcast performances. Live performances are increasingly provided by small performing groups at the community level--low-budget dance troupes, music groups, and theater ensembles that perform for little or no pay. In a few major cities, the largest and best-known organizations are growing even larger by focusing on star-studded productions that pull in the crowds. But conventional midsized arts organizations--once seen as the foremost purveyors of culture to middle America--are under significant financial stress. These and other trends suggest that policies that support artists and arts organizations may be less effective than strategies encouraging greater participation in the arts by a wider range of Americans in a wider range of art forms
