Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2013 in the subject Economics - Economic Cycle and Growth, grade: 80, University of Westminster, course: BSc in Economics with Finance, language: English, abstract: The initial post-soviet union period has brought Russia a longest path towards expected economic growth, much of which are explained by external factors. The paper applies the neoclassical economic growth theory to the Russia's economy during 1990-2013, explaining the importance of foreign oil price changes, inflow of migrants and its geostrategic location towards global trading - including arm sales to notorious North Korea and Iran - to its annual output growth. I also explained the relative correlations between domestic, internal variables, such as changes in legislation/tax reformations, savings and the growth rates achieved periodically for comparative reasons. Future forecasts approved that the growth has been stabilized in a near-term and will become increasingly more depended on the number of Central Asian and other area migrant workers as long as the negative spread between birth and death rates hold in the long-term. And investment in IT industry and attracting foreign hi-tech investments are highly recommended to increase the factor productivity and lessen the oil dependency in the long term. A regression results on the Cobb-Douglas production function also proved our findings by putting more prominence on labor and technology, as the abundance of natural ...

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2011 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: A, University of Newcastle, language: English, abstract: During the past two decades, China's economy has been growing rapidly, so has the inflation rate. This research focuses on the relationship between China's inflation rate and economic growth. There are three sub-questions, consisting of whether there is a significant correlation between China's inflation and economic growth, whether there is a cause-and-effect relationship between China's inflation and economic growth, and how time factor influences their relationship. The result will be helpful for the government to find a way in order to achieve high economic growth and low inflation. After reviewing empirical literature, we know that as the dada and methods differ, different researchers have generated different conclusions regarding the relationship between inflation and economic growth. In this research, we use CPI to measure inflation rate and GDP growth rate to measure economic growth rate. All the data are collected from the National Bureau of Statistics of China. We use three methods to analyse data, including the Correlation Coefficient test, the Granger Causality test as well as the VAR model analysis. The result turns out to be that there is a bidirectional causality relationship between inflation and economy growth, but the relationship is not so strong because CPI is not solely driven by GDP. At last,...

Asmund Rygh vFairtrade and Information about Working Conditions

8127 руб.
In the last decades, there has been a strong growth in private voluntary initiatives, such as Fairtrade labelling and company codes of conduct, aiming at improving conditions for workers and producers in developing countries. This book looks closer at how consumers can find and verify information about working conditions in the production of the goods they consume. Despite the many voluntary initiatives, the book argues that in many cases, consumers lack adequate information on the basis of which to make such choices. This means that there is a market failure in the provision of information about working conditions, which could justify public policy. The book considers three types of policy intervention: Public provision of information, public regulation of labour standards through trade policy, and the public sector’s actions in the marketplace, e.g. through public procurement and public investment. The book surveys existing public policy in these areas, and briefly discusses their effects and the relationships between them. The book aims at providing a basis for future research, and may also be of use to policy-makers.

Ferraris for All: In Defence of Economic Progress

2007 руб.
The growth of the economy and the spread of prosperity are increasingly seen as problematic rather than positive - a trend Daniel Ben-Ami has termed "growth scepticism". Prosperity is accused of encouraging greed, damaging the environment, causing unhappiness and widening social inequalities. Ferraris for all is a rejoinder to the growth sceptics. Using examples from a range of countries, including the US, the author argues that society as a whole benefits from greater affluence. Action is needed - but to increase prosperity and spread it worldwide, not to limit prosperity as the sceptics would have it. Lively and provocative, this timely book will trigger debate and dissent in equal measure and will be essential reading for everyone who cares about the impact of western policy on developing countries.

Since several years, organizations have been depending on various marketing methods to promote products, services and brands. As time passes, the types of marketing strategies that are considered for have changed. Techniques that were used in 1950s shall not be helpful for organizations that operate in today's environment. In the same way, techniques that are currently used in today's environment shall not be useful after 50 to 60 years (Kotler and Keller, 2012). Unless marketing activities are planned based on present market conditions, it is not possible for organizations to reach wide-range of customers that spread across the world. As there are no boundaries in the target markets of most of the organizations, organizations have to use the combination of both traditional and online marketing methods. While traditional marketing methods such as print, radio or television marketing primarily restricted to tap domestic customers, it is online marketing strategy that helps organizations to reach customers, who spread across the world, with minimum marketing budget.

The term growth and development as used in the studies of physical growth is referred as a process not only intimately linked with time, but also affected by different genetic conditions and environment modifications. In India due to variability in culture, religion, socio-economic status and dietary habits; there are no fixed anthropometric indices has been formulated. And the norms which are laid down for one region are not hold good in the other parts of the country. Also the growth studies especially of preschool age group are very few particularly in India. Thus the present attempt would add to our knowledge of the growth pattern of preschool age group i.e. at birth to 5 year children. The data collected for our study would be useful to be as an anthropometric measurement for reference and comparison with international standard.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2012 in the subject Communications - Journalism, Journalism Professions, , language: English, abstract: This study is a contribution to development in the field of journalism in Malawi and neighbouring countries of Malawi, Zambia and Tanzania, at a time of growing concern about the developmental challenges being posed by the spread of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Southern Africa.For Malawi in particular, it examines the struggle against the pandemic that has been underway since 1993 and how the interventions to check its spread have included calls for projects and information that would lead to behaviour change and lowering of infection rates. The campaign along this line has targeted the media, among key stakeholders.To gauge the extent to which journalists are playing their role in the campaign in question, a survey was carried out in Malawi and then also in Zambia and Tanzania. This revealed that journalists in all the three countries covered are currently somewhat hampered in their advocacy of HIVAIDS issues, and that is due to several factors. These include the dearth of communication research in the region, as well as the related lack of relevant education and training opportunities for journalists. They also encompass the absence of laws granting journalists access to relevant government information about epidemiology; the culture of silence which surrounds the exchange of news about HIV/AIDS related deaths and competition in the...

The analysis of birth intervals explicitly recognizes the distinct renewable nature of the fertility process. It considers the progression from one birth to the next during a woman's reproductive life. Birth spacing among women is affected by several factors and as a result for some women a birth interval is too short; for some women the interval is too long; and for other women it is just right. Hence birth intervals play a major role on childbearing and receive attention in the study of human fertility. Wider birth interval has several benefits. Longer gap between births allows a mother more time to recover from pregnancy and delivery; the next pregnancy and birth are more likely to be at full conception and growth; there is less competition between existing children for breastfeeding, food, nutrition, the mother's time, and other resources. Therefore, Birth Interval analysis undoubtedly provides useful information on reproduction and family formation.

An in-depth look at the Chinese car industry that sheds new light on the delicate nature of China's planned economy China's unprecedented growth over the last three decades, along with the recent financial crisis in the West, has raised questions about the superiority of state-led capitalism. In Designated Drivers: How China Plans to Dominate the Global Auto Industry, G.E. Anderson, a specialist in finance and Chinese political economics, uses the auto industry to examine how China's industrial planning works, and explores whether state involvement in the economy really is a winning formula for sustainable growth. Bringing to light the strengths and weaknesses that define the Chinese economy, Anderson finds that in some ways the government has become its own worst enemy, unable to choose between industrial competitiveness and social stability. While the economy is booming now, evidence suggests that long-term success is far from assured. Tracing the evolution of the post-Mao auto industry through thirteen case studies, Designated Drivers raises the difficult questions about the future of China that few people have dared to ask. Offers a unique insight into the Chinese economy through the lens of the auto industry Explores how successful the central government has been in spurring economic growth and the long-terms costs of intervention Uses case studies to illustrate China's explosive growth over the last three decades A painstakingly researched analysis of the Chinese automobile industry, Designated Drivers explains the risks and rewards inherent in doing business in China that anyone interested in, or already working there need to understand.

By reviewing thecontributions from the neoclassical and endogenous growth theory and empiricevidences for the link between ICT and economic growth, the paper clearly concludesthat ICTs facilitate economic growth, principally by providing incentives for capitaldeepening and increasing productivity through rapid technological progress.However, the impact on growth is more extensive from the long-term ICT use and networking that though requires appropriate ICT investment and complementary efforts in order that spillovers and productivity improvements are triggered and exploited totally. This paper derives the key determinants and interacting factors that, in the corresponding correct synergic combination, promote ICT's impact on growth-generating processes. For a variety of reasons, the states of these factors in developing countries provide a less ICT favourable environment for taking advantage from ICTs. These economies exhibit a lower stock of human capacities and per capita capital to trigger the productivity benefits from the ICT use.Therefore, the level of effort is higher than in the developed world to receive...

I delivered twenty babies in the summer of 1977. I was hardly more than a baby myself, just turned twenty-four and starting my third year of medical school."-from Birth Day So began Mark Sloan's three-decades-long exploration of the wonders and oddities of human childbirth. Pediatrician, husband, and father, the author has attended nearly three thousand births since that long-ago summer, encountering everything from routine deliveries to tense labor-room dramas. In Birth Day, Sloan draws on his personal and professional experience to weave the strands of memoir, history, science, and culture into a fascinating-and often funny-tapestry of this fundamental human passage.Birth Day takes the reader on a remarkable journey, from the dawn of human history to the quiet efficiency of a modern operating room; from Aristotle and Julius Caesar to a trailblazing, cross-dressing British army surgeon; from a recent past filled with the horrors of childbirth gone wrong to a present day, in which every pregnancy is expected to end happily. Some of Birth Day's many topics include• The evolution of human childbirth-or, why do gorillas have it so easy?• The first five minutes of life-scuba divers, astronauts, and the amazing adaptations that transform a fetus into an air-breathing, out-in-the-world baby• Cesarean section-a look at its origins, its future, and how it came to be the most frequently performed operation in American hospitals• Pain and politics-the age-old quest for pain...

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,8, University of Applied Sciences Stuttgart, course: International Management, language: English, abstract: During the last two decades the way people and companies communicate have significantly changed. Some of the existing communication channels are adapted to new layers. Other communication channels such as Electronic-Mail (E-Mail), Web Chat, or Social Media are new and additional. At the same time our communication behavior changed through the today´s broad range of diverse communication channels. The so called generation of "Digital Natives" read blocks rather than newspapers, they often meet each other online before the meet in person and they are more likely to send an Instant Message (IM) than to pick up the telephone. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have progressed dramatically and entered every part of life. It is hard to imagine our society today without mobile phones, computers and the Internet. The industry of Information and Communication Technologies has become one of the most dynamic economic sectors and its importance continues to increase. The ICT sector has a high potential for growth, thus offering many opportunities to both the economy and the population. For Germany as a high-tech location, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) plays a substantial role. Smart networkin...

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: Cultural industries, like the sector dedicated to the production of media content, have long been marginal in academic research, arguably because they do not fit pure concepts of the economical, the socio-political, nor the cultural. This relative neglect is in stark contrast to the omnipresence of audio-visual media services in many daily lifes, and the cultural and political significance of such information imparted as media content. These information services fulfil crucial functions for communication, education, inspiration, recreation and entertainment. It also contrasts with the economic dynamism of the sector. In the last two decades, the sector has gone through a „wave of mergers and acquisitions during the 1980s and 1990s” leading to a ”concentration of ownership to international corporations“. The sector is further characterised by technological change, in particular due to the diffusion and development of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) applications. Meanwhile, initial efforts to conduct cultural accounting from the late 1980s onwards provided evidence that the production and distribution of information as media content accounts a) for a significant part of GNP and employment in most industrialised countries, and b) has tended to expand more rapidly than economies as a whole, i.e. has been a source of economic growth and job creation. Not least for EU policy makers, media content came to be seen as one of the growth sectors in...

The PREEN FAMILY HISTORY STUDY GROUP exists to research the family. It organises an Annual Reunion and is preparing a History of the Preen Family in four volumes. DNA analysis has shown that the Preen Family is divided into three groups, each with a common ancestor in the seventeenth century. Volume One will discuss the early history of the family and then Volumes Two to Four will each cover one of the three groups. This book is Volume Three describing the Kings Stanley Group. They are descended from John and Margery Preen who lived in Stone in the 1600s and the book traces their descendants as they spread throughout the Gloucestershire and later throughout the world. It ends with the families who appeared in the 1911 census. For more details of the Group, see our website www.preen.org.uk

Think you have untapped powers? You do. In this work, originally published in 1913, one of the earliest New Age thinkers asserts that not only do we all have the power to achieve greater wisdom, creativity, productivity, and fulfillment, but that this growth is possible for anyone who is willing to concentrate. Foreshadowing the modern field of positive psychology by decades, Larson provides illuminating information about how the brain works in tandem with the body and the emotions, and walks you through exercises that help you gain mental strength and agility, ultimately improving your thinking-and your life. American New Thought pioneer CHRISTIAN DAA LARSON (b. 1874) is the author of the well-known Optimist Creed and published several important works of spiritual science, including Mastery of Self, In the Light of the Spirit, and The Great Within.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Communications - Research, Studies, Enquiries, grade: 80.00, Ghana Institute of Journalism, language: English, abstract: The invention of the World Wide Web in the last decade has made information sharing very personal, convenient and easy. The growing trend of this new communication has facilitated the establishment of a medium through which news can be accessed without the purchase of a hardcopy newspaper, radio or television. Because of this, almost all television and radio stations as well as hardcopy newspapers in Ghana have an online representation of news. Could the introduction of the internet and online news portals be taking over from the traditional media or these portals complement traditional media? Data collected and findings of the study indicated that online news portals directly have an impact on the patronage of newspapers in Ghana but have not totally displaced newspapers. This is because while most respondents heavily depended on online news portals for information and majority felt satisfied, few others relied on newspapers for specific information such as job advertisements.Keywords: social media, online news, newspapers, news websites, newspaper patronage.

During the last two decades there has been considerable growth in the development of electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) as a practical method in the study of reaction mechanisms. This method allows the interception and characterization of key intermediates, either as transient species or as protonated/deprotonated forms of neutral species by API-MS. The outstanding features and advantages of ESI-MS make it one of the most suitable tools for the fast screening of intermediates directly from solution, providing hitherto unavailable chemical information to organic chemists. This monograph provides an overview of the mechanisms involved in ESI-MS, the historical perspectives before looking further in-depth at specific reactions and intermediates. Written by researchers in the field, this book is an unique resource for the understanding of this cutting-edge technique.

Student growth modeling and teacher value-added modeling are complex. Thecomplexity stems, in part, from issues due to non-random assignment of students into classes and schools,measurement error in students' achievement scores that are utilized to evaluate the added value of teachers, multidimensionality of the measuredconstruct across multiple grades, and the inclusion of covariates.

Each section has ten modules, and each module has eight lessons. Each of the three sections is approximately five hundred thousand words: it is the most extensive, in-depth, and intelligent up to date magical course that is currently available worldwide.The methods, information and techniques in the course enable the magician to engage any form of magic and work with it appropriately with the full knowledge of how that magic works, why it works and what is behind it. It also starts to guide the magician along the mystical path, a path that reaches beyond religions and faith, and one where the adept moves into mystical union with the universe around them.The lessons are detailed: each lesson has a very practical application which in turn develops the ‘magical muscle’ within the magician, thus preparing them for the power they will be exposed to in subsequent study sections.

Since China's reforms, the country has experienced tremendous growth and expansion. China's government has encouraged the companies to go global, with the recent reforms of the "Go West" and "Going Global" policy. Since China became a member of the World Trade Organisation in 2001, economic reforms have led to a spectacular economic success which has generated rapid economic growth over two decades. The country has moved from a centrally-planned economy towards a market economy.This research study focuses on the impact and the trends of Chinese FDI (foreign direct investment) on Kenya's economic sectors of agriculture, infrastructure, manufacturing, and tourism. It seeks to quantify the advantages and disadvantages through the SWOT analysis and to suggest policies necessary to maximize the development impact of China in Kenya. The study takes a qualitative and quantitative approach with close textual analysis of the existing data and information from the Kenya embassy in Beijing and KIA and auxiliary information from existing written literature, books, internet sources, journal articles and interpretation of these sources.

In 1935 geneticist Nikolai Timoféeff-Ressovsky, radiation physicist Karl G. Zimmer, and quantum physicist Max Delbrück published “On the Nature of Gene Mutation and Gene Structure,” known subsequently as the “Three-Man Paper.” This seminal paper advanced work on the physical exploration of the structure of the gene through radiation physics and suggested ways in which physics could reveal definite information about gene structure, mutation, and action. Representing a new level of collaboration between physics and biology, it played an important role in the birth of the new field of molecular biology. The paper’s results were popularized for a wide audience in the What is Life? lectures of physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1944. Despite its historical impact on the biological sciences, the paper has remained largely inaccessible because it was only published in a short-lived German periodical. Creating a Physical Biology makes the Three Man Paper available in English for the first time. Brandon Fogel’s translation is accompanied by an introductory essay by Fogel and Phillip Sloan and a set of essays by leading historians and philosophers of biology that explore the context, contents, and subsequent influence of the paper, as well as its importance for the wider philosophical analysis of biological reductionism.Издательство - The University of Chicago Press

With the support of technology we receive more and more information from companies and this information overload brings consequences with it. Consumers suffer from confusion and frustration because they cannot consider every information in their decision process. Therefore, the present thesis analyses the influence of information overload on decisions towards smartphones. A broad literature review is conducted in order to get a better understanding of the consumer decision process, the influencing factors, the concept of information overload and brand behavior. In order to answer the research question, a quantitative online survey is performed. An experimental task of either one of two tables with different level of information load is implemented. The two groups can be compared in order to reveal significant differences. Furthermore, the moderator effect of perceived information overload on satisfaction of a decision is analyzed. First, the participants were asked about their satisfaction of the decision, based on what choice criteria they evaluated and the information overload is measured. Additionally, the participants assess their inform...

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The beginning of the 21st century with the fear of the "Year 2000"-threat (Y2K) became a milestone for the "Information Age", a term coined for the post-industrial stage of leading countries „[…] when information and information technologies become the main strategic national resource which results in an avalanche growth of information dependence in all spheres of society and state activities.”. In organisations the awareness of the dependence on information has led to corporate initiatives to treat information as an asset, which includes various efforts for its protection. Management trends such as "knowledge management" have identified "knowledge sharing" as a new means for achieving competitive advantage, thus promoting information to be disseminated. Due to an ever closer relationship with customers, suppliers and even competitors, organisations have expanded their "information network" outside of the original boundaries. The dualism of protection of information assets on the one hand and a free flow of information has been identified to become a challenge for organisations, described as „[…] how to satisfy this need to share information without exposing the organization to undue risk.”. With the information society implying radical changes, the need to act has been accelerated by a new mindset reacting to the advent of "e-business". Information Security (InfoSec) is often mistaken to be a purely tech...

The growth in surveillance has been a component of the growth of contemporary society, however, due to advances in information technology and the rise of greater links in communication there are other forms of surveillance, such as the internet and social media, which complicate methods of social control. The mix of advanced technologies supported by sufficient data management systems used by governmental agencies and corporate groups has provided a more undistinguishable and more powerful means of surveillance. Modes of social control have now developed into systems of control where an individual can be empowered and empower others. Living in a society where every movement whether online or while shopping on the local high street can be monitored and scrutinized leads to an environment where intrusion becomes an integral part of modern life. A life of surveillance is therefore sure to prevail.This paper discusses how contemporary surveillance has elements of the principles of panopticism in its processes. The discourse suggests that contemporary forms of control have some elements of discipline however principles of constant observation with constant scrutiny are highlighted to be a significant aspect of contemporary surveillance processes. Furthermore the paper highlights that contemporary surveillance, where data is power and having knowledge about individuals and groups by governmental agencies and corporations extends this power, collects its information reminiscent of p...
