The aim of this book is to review the innovation systems in their «classical» version before defining them in the light of emerging economies through the objectives of economic and sustainable development. If we return particularly to the innovation system and its importance, we will show through these new MINTs that their innovation systems are perpetuated, based on very localized experiments, despite the fragility of their links, the lack of national coherence of innovation and above all the weakness of their innovation policy.

Punzo Chiara The Theory of Monetary Circuit as a Development Issue

This book analyzes the role of financial system in economic growth and stability, dealing with the reforms of financial system in emerging economies. It analyzes the role of finance in the Graziani's Theory of Monetary Circuit (TMC) by means of transaction matrices. To understand the distinctive feature of circuitist approach, it is compared to more consolidated approaches in economic theory - from neo-classical to Keynesian approach, without neglecting classical one. TMC represents an alternative to the Quantity Theory of Money. Endogenous money is widespread in economic theory. This work deals with the debate searching a point of convergence between microeconomic dimension and macroeconomic one. It deals with the relation between finance and incentives to efficiency and stability in TMC. This work assesses the impact of financial system reforms, and identifies incentives and institutions coherent with financial system reform strategies in emerging economies.

Marcus Goncalves, Jose Alves, Rajabahadur Arcot Doing Business in Emerging Markets. Roadmap for Success

Like Advanced Economies and Emerging Markets, the 'flagship' book of the series, from which this book is derived Doing Business in Emerging Markets recognizes that there is intense competition among emerging markets to capture their share of the global economy. The series addresses questions that are germane to accomplishing this goal. Most important to this end is the study and practice of international business and foreign trade. Undertaking such a study raises many questions which the series will attempt to answer: Why are emerging markets and the firms doing business in them internationalizing so aggressively; and why in the past decade has the pace of internationalization accelerated so rapidly? What competitive advantages do these emerging economies enjoy in comparison to advanced economies, such as the G20, and what are the origins of those advantages? This volume is devoted to presenting the practical aspects and challenges of doing business in global emerging markets.

Karimi Mazaher, Mokhlis Hazlie Under-Frequency Load Shedding Scheme for Islanded Distribution Network

Abnormal conditions such as overload and generator tripping usually result in large excursion of power system frequency, voltage and other system variables. In this case, an effective method to prevent the electric power system from instability, frequency collapse and blackout is an under-frequency load shedding scheme. It is applied in order to maintain stability of the system, when the power system generation fails to supply the increase of load. Load shedding is a common technique to maintain the power system stability by curtailment of partial load in some part of the system. However, the load shedding techniques for an islanded distribution network should be treated differently from the transmission power system. A particular approach of under-frequency load shedding scheme is required for an islanded system which is known to be not as strong as the grid.

MD Shafiqul Islam Shafiq Zero Oil Discharge from Ship. Improved Protection of Marine Environment

Scientific research reveals that a 15-ppm regulatory limit of oil discharge from shipboard operations has a long-term harmful effect on the marine environment, its biodiversity and eco-system. Yet, operational discharges from machinery spaces remain the largest oil polluting source of the oceans from shipping activities. However, use of technologies can reduce the oil content of the operational discharges from machinery spaces much below the regulatory limit and even almost to zero-ppm. Hence, eliminates the harmful effects of operational discharges into the marine environment. This book provides an ample opportunity for the ship owners, operators and the regulators around the world to act now to meet the future requirements in conserving the marine environment. The separator, filter and other related equipment producing industries will also be immensely benefited if proactive actions taken immediately. The marine scientists, researchers and the environmentalists having interest in protecting and preserving the marine biodiversity and its eco-system, the food chain and the ocean- the Mother Nature in general, will also find this book interesting and enlightening.

For more than a decade, emerging markets have proved one of the most exciting areas of investment, but the sector has not been without its dangers. Private and professional investors alike have continuously been attracted by the promise of riches on offer from countries such as China, India, Brazil and Russia but, as often as not, have been left with their fingers burnt. Investing in Emerging Markets: The BRIC Economies and Beyond tempers the undoubted causes for emerging market optimism with a healthy dose of reality, illustrating how for every argument in favour of investing in the sector there are one or more reasons to tread very carefully indeed. In the wake of the credit crunch and ensuing market turmoil, it also analyses where the emerging markets now fit within the global investment landscape. With the economies of the US, Europe and Japan hit by an economic crisis very much of their own making, has the credibility gap between developed and developing markets narrowed? Has the playing field become more level? Investing in Emerging Markets: The BRIC Economies and Beyond offers a fresh, clear-eyed and objective look at an area that can only grow in importance over the next decade. It balances a realistic appraisal of the opportunities on offer from the emerging markets with a pragmatic assessment of the potential pitfalls facing investors, in the process providing an accessible introduction to newcomers and more experienced investors with a valuable and compact point of reference.

Jamil Ahmad Asymmetries in the Emerging Multilateral Trading System under the WTO. An Analysis

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2011 in the subject Economics - International Economic Relations, Aligarh Muslim University (Department of Economics), language: English, abstract: The fundamental principles of the multilateral trading system is to help trade flow as freely as possible, on the one hand, and deal with disputes over trade issues on the other. The expansion of trade has played a dynamic role in the growth of the global economy since World War II. Trade is important for the development of all types of economies. But its sustained growth calls for a free and fair Multilateral trading system. A trading system that is rule based helps in the expansion of trade. Similarly, a trading system that lowers trade barriers through negotiations and applies the principle of non-discrimination promotes trade from developing countries. Further, the trading system that allows disputes to be settled effectively and constructively has the added advantage for the developing countries. The world trading system under the WTO promises all but its working over the past years since its establishment has revealed that the pace and pattern of implementation by different member countries have not been uniform. More powerful players in the trade space have evolved many new instruments of safeguarding their national interest while the weaker players have been forced to implement their commitments. This has generated asymmetries in the pattern of effective market access in the diff...

The electrical power supply is about to change; future generation will increasingly take place in and near local neighborhoods with diminishing reliance on distant power plants. The existing grid is not adapted for this purpose as it is largely a remnant from the 20th century. Can the grid be transformed into an intelligent and flexible grid that is future proof? This revised edition of Electrical Power System Essentials contains not only an accessible, broad and up-to-date overview of alternating current (AC) power systems, but also end-of-chapter exercises in every chapter, aiding readers in their understanding of the material introduced. With an original approach the book covers the generation of electric energy from thermal power plants as from renewable energy sources and treats the incorporation of power electronic devices and FACTS. Throughout there are examples and case studies that back up the theory or techniques presented. The authors set out information on mathematical modelling and equations in appendices rather than integrated in the main text. This unique approach distinguishes it from other text books on Electrical Power Systems and makes the resource highly accessible for undergraduate students and readers without a technical background directly related to power engineering. After laying out the basics for a steady-state analysis of the three-phase power system, the book examines: generation, transmission, distribution, and utilization of electric energy wind energy, solar energy and hydro power power system protection and circuit breakers power system control and operation the organization of electricity markets and the changes currently taking place system blackouts future developments in power systems, HVDC connections and smart grids The book is supplemented by a companion website from which teaching materials can be downloaded.

The human immune system is constantly exposed to chemical contaminants, whether from food, water or air. Some chemicals directly elicit an immune response, while others indirectly activate or deactivate components within the immune system. Thus when tracking or predicting the effect of a chemical on the immune system, many different pathways and modes of action need to be considered. Following an introduction to the various pathways and toxicity mechanisms from a systemic perspective, the main part of this comprehensive reference surveys individual molecular mechanisms of important immunotoxicants, from PAHs to biopharmaceuticals, and from receptor-mediated toxicity to nanoparticle toxicity, using analyses based on molecular effects rather than on animal models. Taken together, the knowledge presented here provides an up-to-date overview of this hot topic that can be directly applied to the prediction and characterization of immunotoxic effects in drugs, chemicals, and environmental contaminants.

Ranjit Singh, Rohit Kumar, Sukhwinder Singh Jolly A computer-aided approach for gating system design for multi-cavity dies

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Engineering - Mechanical Engineering, grade: 8, , language: English, abstract: This work presents a system that would help in automatic design of multi-gates for multi-cavities dies. The system is able to automate: (i) the determination of the placement of gate, and (ii) determination of the shape of gate for die-casting parts having simple shapes. The system has to be implemented in GUI of MATLAB 7.10 using the best industry practices and recommendations from NADCA for gating-system design. The proposed system is able to generate parameters of multi-cavity gating-system for parts requiring multi-gates from the part model data. The other information required for working of the system includes material properties, die-casting process parameters and die-casting casting machine parameters which comes under the data initialization process. The parameters of the gating-system which are determined by the system are used for design of gating-system for the multi-cavity dies. This is done by updating the parameters of pre-modeled gating-system features stored as feature library. Chapter 3 , 4 and 5 present the various modules of the system along with its implementation on case-study parts. The results from the case-studies are quite encouraging and are in-line with the best industry practices. The present work describes a novel methodology for computer-aided automatic placement of the gating system for a die-casting part. it uses ...

An engaging look at the road to a sustained economic recovery The global finance system can be regulated to prevent massive credit fraud, tame capitalism, confront the sovereign debt crisis, and move towards investing in the real economy and full employment. «Obamanomics», and American reinvention can lead to a sustained economic recovery but only together with major domestic, European, and global monetary reforms in cooperation with emerging nations. For decades, the U.S. dollar has served as the world's reserve currency. But after the global market meltdown and the resulting massive stimulus spending meant to keep the Great Recession from becoming an even Greater Depression, confidence in America's ability to make good on its growing debt is at all-time lows. In Brave New World Economy: Global Finance Threatens Our Future, Wilhelm Hankel and Robert Isaak—two extremely controversial, yet highly respected experts on international economics and management—describe how «Obamanomics,» the Euro crisis, and shift of economic growth from the West to emerging economies, if handled properly, can lead to true economic stability and job creation. Highlights America's 'Great Bluff' bail-out strategy to cope with the crisis and the reforms Obamanomics must make to bring about sustainable job recovery Describes the risks and rewards of borrowing from future generations—in the United States, Europe, and the developing world—to save the current generation Details how money became separated from government control and why the interbanking credit system threatens western nations with bankruptcy, undermining pensions, and the human right to work Points out why nation-states need to go back to helping themselves and not rely on the false promises of regional integration and globalization Shows how legalizing underground labor will create more jobs How we arrived at this economic crossroads isn't as important as the decision as to which path to take. The Brave New World Economy points us in the right direction.

Project Report from the year 2012 in the subject Library Science, Information- / Documentation Science, Kampala International University (computer studdies), course: none, language: English, abstract: For many years, universities & colleges have used file based / manual system to manage library use. Whereas this was quite efficient for some time, due to the expansion of the library and increase in the number of students, the system wastes a lot of time especially when searching for a particular book or resource. In response to this problem, more librarians have been added (employed), and this has escalated the cost of managing the library. This inefficiency, led to the study that was aimed at automating the book keeping function of the library.A study was carried out at Kampala International University Dar salaam Campus and it was discovered that the manual system had inefficiencies ranging from time wastage, high cost of operation in terms of human resources, long search time, data redundancy among others. A computer based library management system was developed using visual studio. The new system allows the user to add books into the system, search for books from the system database, track member information, manage borrowing among others.By automating library operations, the university will enjoy the advantages of using databases and transaction processing systems.

Tariq Alrifai Islamic Finance and the New Financial System. An Ethical Approach to Preventing Future Financial Crises

Can Islamic finance save the global system? Islamic Finance and the New Financial System describes how the adoption of Islamic finance principles in future regulatory decisions could help prevent future shocks in the global financial system. Using illustrations and examples to highlight key points in recent history, this book discusses the causes of financial crises, why they are becoming more frequent and increasingly severe, and how the new financial system will incorporate elements of Islamic finance – whether deliberately or not. With an introspective look at the system and an examination of the misconceptions and deficiencies in theory vs. practice, readers will learn why Islamic finance has not been as influential as it should be on the larger global system. Solutions to these crises are thoroughly detailed, and the author puts forth a compelling argument about what can be expected in the future. Despite international intervention and global policy changes, the financial system remains in a fragile state. There is an argument to be made about integrating Islamic finance into the new system to facilitate stronger resilience, and this book explains the nuts and bolts of the idea while providing the reader with a general understanding of Islamic finance. Understand the key principles of Islamic finance Examine the history of the current financial system Discover how Islamic finance can help build a new debt-free economy Learn how Islamic finance theory doesn't always dictate practice Although Islamic finance is a growing market, it is still a foreign concept to many. Those within the Islamic finance circles wonder why the system has yet to gain broader appeal despite its ability to create a strong and well-balanced economy. Islamic Finance and the New Financial System provides clever analysis and historical background to put the issues into perspective.

Noura Semary Image coloring Techniques and Applications

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2011 in the subject Computer Science - Miscellaneous, Minufiya University (Faculty of Computers and Information), language: English, abstract: After the appearance of Image Colorization in the literature and the different developments of colorization techniques, it was necessary to search for new applications for this new field rather than coloring gray images. This thesis is a research and implementation study for various applications that can exploit from colorization techniques. Three proposed colorization applications are proposed in this thesis; Automatic Movie Colorization System, Color Image Encoding System Using HSI Space Embedding System and Color Image Encoding System Using Morphological Decolorization. The first application of image colorization attracts researchers in this field is Old Movies Colorizing. This thesis presents a new proposal for a system that works on coloring the old movies automatically. The proposed system is based on coloring the film shot by shot instead of frames as it is common in this area. This is done by splitting the film into shots and coloring the first frame in the shot (the key frame) . After that the motion vector between the frames of each shot is generated to transfer the colors from the key frame to the following frames in the shot using the motion vector.Color image encoding becomes an important application for image colorization. The idea is to remove colors from color images at the s...

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: A-C, Stockholm School of Economics (Stockholm School of Economics), course: Creative Economy, language: English, comment: Can emerging economies find shortcuts in their economic development through applying their creative potential? Results of this study imply that there are possible shortcuts in economic development that emerging countries can take, in order to achieve the level of economic wellbeing similar to that of the developed countries faster. Finally, a term of "neat" creativity as a constant driver of economic development, be it creativity of slack or creativity of deficit, has been discussed, which raises numerous questions for further research. , abstract: The major query addressed in this study is whether emerging economies can find shortcuts in their economic development through applying their creative potential.

Nyundo Lucy Mobile Money Ecosystem in Zambia-Economic Stimulus with challenges

The possibility of tapping into the non-conventional financial system has been accelerated by contemporary information and telecommunications technology like mobile telephones and mobile network platforms. Therefore, banking the unbanked still remains an attractive business opportunity, especially in emerging and developing regions like South America, Asia and Africa because a great percentage of the population in such regions can afford a mobile phone but not a bank account. Riding on the mobile telephone and network technology, a non-conventional financial system has emerged which does not rely on the traditional banking infrastructure but relies on different platforms in a complex business ecosystem. However, this ecosystem appears to be in a state of flux and presents different business opportunities and challenges that can potentially stimulate emerging and developing economies like Zambia.

Abel Muyisa China.s emergence and the balance of power

Document from the year 2018 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Far East, , language: English, abstract: The global political system resulting from the end of the Cold War, which consecrated the implosion of the Soviet Union at the turn of the 1990s, remains marked with the American superpower. China, which has naturally always been a great nation in the international system, is on a steady and tremendous growth, a development process which is leading to a dramatic change in the global power distribution and the positioning of China as a potential contender of the U.S. the world affairs. While China needs to pursue its economic, security and political goals, it must also deal with the security dilemma induced by its emergence as a great power. This study discusses how China pursues its rise with the constraint of the American dominance of the international system. Essentially a theoretical undertaking, this thesis proposes an analysis of China's emergence from the assumptions of offensive realism developed by John J. Mearsheimer. It results from this analysis that China appears to follow a strategy that combines three complementary dimensions: on the internal level, economic and military reforms; and externally, an assertive and effective diplomacy in line with its strategic goals. Such an approach is innovative in the sense that it aims to raise the national and international profile of China through mainly economic power rather than military.

Emerging Asia was the fairytale story to emerge from the economic horror that engulfed much of the world in 2008 and 2009. Even at the height of the crisis key emerging Asian economies made headlines for extraordinary macro growth numbers. But the question frequently asked is whether emerging Asian nations, especially China, will be able to sustain their pace of growth. In this timely book, Asian expert Aaron Chaze asks whether the booming Asian economies have what it takes to move away from an export-led, external-trade dominated economy and truly embrace a free-market philosophy. The Asia Investor provides a solid framework for analyzing investment opportunities across the region and picking potential winners. Asia is buoyed by several trends that drive these opportunities and it is the analysis of these trends that forms the core of this book.

Krzysztof Jaskólski Availability and integrity model of Automatic Identification System (AIS) Information

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2014 in the subject Nautical Science, , course: -, language: English, abstract: Automatic Identification System (AIS) is a data exchange system which was introduced to improve shipping safety and the possibility of exchanging data, at a country and international level, about ships heading to or from ports, as well as exchanging data relating to passengers and dangerous or environment-polluting cargo carried by ships. The main purpose of introducing AIS was to offer a wider spectrum of available, continuous and reliable navigational data. Apart from being useful for traffic control in a marine area, AIS data can be a very important source of information used in collision avoidance process. However, some reservations are voiced with regard to the unconditional reliance on the data transferred through this channel. The information integrity problem had been raised already at the stage of system implementation and some fragmentary outcomes were published in the past. However, it can be assumed that the results from the system introduction period may not represent reality. Thus, it seems reasonable to base the assessment on theoretical analysis, through the development of multi-criteria model describing the AIS information integrity.

Legacy system refers to an existing system that has been developed in the past and running critical business processes within a company. It could also be considered as the core of the company's system architecture that has significant business value. Therefore this valuable asset must be highly considered in the adaption to SOA. However, not in all cases the company can migrate the legacy system to SOA successfully. The migration process depends on some factors which vary from one legacy infrastructure and series of business processes to another. There is no easy way to transform the existing legacy assets. The fact that considering the right factors to reach legacy system migration success in a specific company is the key value. Therefore, we studied these factors from both business and technical perspectives. In this book, we studied and shared experiences about the factors influencing success of migrating the legacy system into SOA in five different case companies with different expertise including bank, airline, engineering and furniture companies. This book should help the researchers or the readers who are interested in the service-oriented architecture system.

As rightly quoted by University Education Commission (1948-49) that, "If we are to suggest a single reform in the system of education then it would be that of examination". The remark was followed by formation of number of committees and commissions with different recommendations for the evaluation system for the Indian education system. All intelligentsia converged to the CCE as an assessment tool for wholistic evaluation of the students' learning. Further with internal examination this component cease to happen in the way it is suppose to be. Students being the internal and indispensible part of the education system had to undergo such system.

Zamir Iqbal The Stability of Islamic Finance. Creating a Resilient Financial Environment for a Secure Future

The Stability of Islamic Finance main focus is on the question of the sources of financial instability which seems inherent in the conventional system. As a core component of this focus, the book will consider episodes of turbulence and instability in a historical context recalling the occurrence of such events from mid-19th century to the present. It will present various theoretical explanations along with solutions and alternative financial systems that avoid instability provided by various scholars dating back to mid-19th century to present. The book then will present and discuss the architecture of an Islamic financial system and show that at its core, this system shares many characteristics of an stable financial system proposed by Western scholars throughout history to avoid the inherent instability of the present dominant system. Particular emphasis will be placed on the present financial crisis and its causes as well the financial crisis of the 1997 in Southeast Asia, Russia, and Latin America relating these episodes to the fundamental features of the dominant system. The debt crisis of the low income countries will also be part of this discussion. It will then argue that these crises could be mitigated under an Islamic system or any other system with similar architecture.

BRICs and Beyond is an international business executive text written especially for executive and MBA students. It is based on extensive consulting in emerging economies and several years of experience teaching executive MBA courses around the globe. The author has continually faced the problem that the available textbooks for teaching international business focused almost exclusively on examples of Western multinationals for case illustrations. In the process of preparing cases nearer to the emerging market she worked in, the author realized that the often fascinating, frequently insightful and always different approach to business illustrated by these cases should be required reading for MBA students in typical Western environments too. With its wide range of current case illustrations and concise summaries this is a new-generation text that will welcome today's MBA student to the wider world of 21st century international business. «. . . this book is needed not only because it looks at business from the BRICs points of view; it also looks at business from the point of view of tomorrow's business leaders and the challenges that they will have to cope with.» –Professor Jonathan Gosling, Centre for Leadership Studies, and co-founder, The One-Planet MBA, the University of Exeter, UK «. . . Stephanie Jones advises Western businesses on doing business in emerging economies in a refreshingly straightforward manner, integrating in a novel way her three decades of global, practical experience with the daily barrage of reporting on the BRICs–distilling from these many lessons and principles. . .» –Extracted from the Foreword, by Professor Wim Naudé, Director of Research, Maastricht School of Management

Cédric Ehrmann Implantation of a premium automotive brand in the saturated German market

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,7, Nürtingen University; Geislingen, course: Preis und Produkt Politik, language: English, abstract: This research is based on the importance of the product portfolio and price policy for premium brands who want to penetrate the German automotive premium market. Aim is to find how important these two factors are and how far the foreign manufacturers should adjust them to have a competitive advantage over its historically established German competitors. This research is also aimed to show to the readers the potential similarities or discrepancies between importers and local manufacturers and in what way these have a positive or negative impact on the company sales in Germany.The following work will be dedicated to the premium brands, from developed countries as well as from emerging markets, coming to Germany. In a first place, brands from developed countries because manufacturers based in these countries also have created premium brands. Generalist manufacturers have launched premium brands to compete with historical brands. The brands from emerging countries (BRICS, Four Asian Tigers, Tiger Cub Economies) because these states are part of the most dynamical regions in the world with a strong demographic and economic growth. Secondly we will focus on premium brand because today they are the most profitable segment in the automotive sector and represent a significant part of the s...

An effective and cost efficient protection of electronic system against ESD stress pulses specified by IEC 61000-4-2 is paramount for any system design. This pioneering book presents the collective knowledge of system designers and system testing experts and state-of-the-art techniques for achieving efficient system-level ESD protection, with minimum impact on the system performance. All categories of system failures ranging from 'hard' to 'soft' types are considered to review simulation and tool applications that can be used. The principal focus of System Level ESD Co-Design is defining and establishing the importance of co-design efforts from both IC supplier and system builder perspectives. ESD designers often face challenges in meeting customers' system-level ESD requirements and, therefore, a clear understanding of the techniques presented here will facilitate effective simulation approaches leading to better solutions without compromising system performance. With contributions from Robert Ashton, Jeffrey Dunnihoo, Micheal Hopkins, Pratik Maheshwari, David Pomerenke, Wolfgang Reinprecht, and Matti Usumaki, readers benefit from hands-on experience and in-depth knowledge in topics ranging from ESD design and the physics of system ESD phenomena to tools and techniques to address soft failures and strategies to design ESD-robust systems that include mobile and automotive applications. The first dedicated resource to system-level ESD co-design, this is an essential reference for industry ESD designers, system builders, IC suppliers and customers and also Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). Key features: Clarifies the concept of system level ESD protection. Introduces a co-design approach for ESD robust systems. Details soft and hard ESD fail mechanisms. Detailed protection strategies for both mobile and automotive applications. Explains simulation tools and methodology for system level ESD co-design and overviews available test methods and standards. Highlights economic benefits of system ESD co-design.
