...ECON3007 Economic Policy Analysis Topic: Institutions and Economic Reforms Wendy Carlin This topic focuses on the role of institutions in economic growth and the implications of this for the design of economic reforms. We examine why some large-scale economic reforms have been surprisingly successful and others have been disappointing. It will be argued that the consistency between existing institutions in the economy and the reforms is an important factor in determining reform success. We look at property rights and contracting institutions, at the experience of transition economies – both in the former Soviet bloc and China and at reform policies including privatization. The empirical techniques that we study include cross-sectional and panel regressions using aggregate (i.e. country-level) data and micro-economic data.

Eco/101

...Economics 101 By Alicia Fletcher April 29, 2013 ECO/372 Shah Danyal Economics 101 The gross domestic product is the output of goods and services provided by labor and property located in the US. The measurement is used to determine the growth of the economy and can determine what areas may need a boost in their output to help the economy grow. An inflation-adjusted measure that reflects the value of all goods and services produced in a given year, expressed in base-year prices. Often referred to as "constant-price," "inflation-corrected" GDP or "constant dollar GDP". Real GDP is the nominal GDP plus adjustment for inflation. Real GDP is also called per capita real output which is where the total population divides the real GDP. Unlike nominal GDP, real GDP can account for changes in the price level, and provide a more accurate figure. Nominal GDP is a gross domestic product (GDP) figure that has not been adjusted for inflation. Also known as "current dollar GDP" or "chained dollar GDP.” ("Invetopeida", 2013) The unemployment rate is the percentage of the total labor force that is unemployed but actively seeking employment and willing to work. Inflation is defined as a sustained increase in the general level of prices for goods and services. It is measured as an annual percentage increase. ("Invetopeida", 2013) As inflation rises, every dollar you own buys a smaller percentage of a good or service. Interest rate is the amount charged, expressed as a percentage......

Ps 101

...going to be as successful going forward as it has been. China needs to shift away from an export-driven economy to more of a consumption model. It needs to be mindful about funding its state-owned enterprises, about subsidizing state-owned companies. It needs to lessen its reliance on low-end manufacturing and move up the value chain. By the way, these aren’t my observations; these are observations by Chinese leadership. If you follow any Chinese leader’s speech on China’s economic transformation, these are the points he’ll make. We would call that market rationalism or just normal evolution as a country rises to middle-income status. But there are also some countervailing impulses. There’s a strong streak of economic nationalism; there is a desire to promote national champions; there are protectionist impulses; and investment barriers—the policies called indigenous innovation, where China looks for ways to highlight or promote local companies at the expense of international competition. The fundamental economic question is: Will market rationalism prevail over these kinds of distortions, whether you call them mercantilism or protectionism or rent-seeking or other kinds of state interventions? My prediction is that Chinese leadership is moving toward market rationalism, but only somewhat. What we’re going to see with Xi Jinping’s leadership, is that the Chinese are very concerned about open-ended financial support for the state-owned enterprises and they want to contain,......

...ECONOMICS 31 101 Economics is fundamental to everything we do. Each day we take decisions on economic grounds: • how much to spend on different types of goods and services • whether to travel by bus or train • whether to eat in the Union or in a local pub/cafe • whether to buy textbooks or clothes Others also take decisions which have an impact on us: • companies decide to raise/lower their prices • government may change income tax, vat, student maintenance allowances, tuition fees TV, radio and press commentators are constantly examining the implications of decisions and choices. Scarcity - The Central Issue Taking decisions/making choices - made necessary by scarcity: the volume of goods and services which can be produced is less than the amounts people want to have. Page 1 of 30 Scarcity arises because resources to produce goods and services are limited. Resources (factors of production) are: 1. Labour - human resources (labour force) are limited in number and skills 2. Land and raw materials - natural resources 3. Capital - manufactured resources: equipment, factories (influenced by technology - how we combine resources) Economic Questions What to produce?

...English 101 Susan Akopee For many years, children growing up in a single parent family have been viewed as different. Being raised by only one parent seems impossible to many yet over the decades it has become more prevalent. In today’s society many children have grown up to become emotionally stable and successful whether they had one or two parents to show them the rocky path that life bestows upon all human beings. The problem lies in the difference of children raised by single parents versus children raised by both a mother and a father. Does a child need both parents? Does a young boy need a father figure around? Does the government provide help for single parents? What role do step-parents and step-siblings play? With much speculation, this topic has become a very intriguing argument. What people must understand is that properly raising a child does not rely on the structure of a family but should be more focused on the process or values that are taught to these children as they learn to mature. Children of single parents can be just as progressive with emotional, social and behavioral skills as those with two parents. People claim that the only way for children to gain full emotional and behavioral skills is to be raised by both a mother and a father. When a topic such as this one has a broad amount of variables it is impossible to simply link these problems to only having one parent. In the article, “Single-parent families cause juvenile crime”, author Robert L.......

(če bomo skozi cello predstavitev prikazovali ta primer) Rethinking the corporation * Najtežja naloga managementa je organizacija sistema, ki bo sposobno najti izdelke, ki se jim potencialni kupci ne bodo mogli upreti, za katere še sploh ne vedo da jih potrebujejo, si jih ne morejo niti zamisliti. * NEC se v 1980ih poveže v strateško zvezo z namenom pridobitve tehnoloških znanj. GTE tega ne stori (managerji višjih ravni še vedno delujejo, kot da upravljajo posamezne poslovne enote in ne podjetja kot celote). The roots of competitive advantage * Kratkoročno konkurenčnost podjetja izvira iz cenovne uspešnosti (price/performance) trenutnih proizvodov, dolgoročno pa izvira iz sposobnosti za izdelavo izdelkov z manj stroški in hitreje kot konkurenca. * Sistem korenin kot ključna kompetenca (ta primerjava z drevesom se mi zdi zelo nazorna, str 82, drugi odstavek in lepo razloži vse, lahko bi uporabili) How not to think of competence * Za ohranjanje ključnih kompetenc ni potrebno prehiteti konkurentov glede......

...IT 101-002 September 22, 2013 IT News Report Assignment 1 Article Summary The article, “The iPhone 5s fingerprint reader: what you need to know”, explains how the fingerprint sensor works to its readers. For the first time, Apple has introduced a new technology called the “Touch ID” in its iPhone 5s. Basically, this feature enhances the security for the phone’s owner, where they no longer have to solely rely on entering a passcode to access their phone. The new iPhone 5s makes use of a capacitance fingerprint reader, which measures and senses the user’s fingerprint and further forms an image. This sensor has been placed in the “home” button of the phone. Eventually, the iPhone does not store the user’s fingerprint but instead runs a scan every time a finger is placed on the sensor. The emergence of this new technology does not mean that passcodes will no longer be used. Passcode is a must! If the sensor breaks or something happens to your finger, you need a way to get back into your phone. Other Apple services, such as iCloud or iTunes, will still require passwords, as fingerprint readers cannot always be used for them. However, purchases can be made using the Touch ID. According to Apple, this new technology will prove to be exciting to its users. A simple four-digit passcode will no longer always need to be used to get into your phone. Touch ID along with the use of a passcode will prove to be more secure for the iPhone user. Analysis Day by day, new advancements in...

The staff is providing this guidance due, in part, to the large number of revenue recognition issues that registrants encounter. Based on these guidelines, revenue should not be recognized until it is realized or realizable and earned. SFAC No. 5, paragraph 83(b) states that "an entity's revenue-earning activities involve delivering or producing goods, rendering services, or other activities that constitute its ongoing major or central operations, and revenues are considered to have been earned when the entity has substantially accomplished what it must do to be entitled to the benefits represented by the revenues" [footnote reference omitted]. Paragraph 84(a) continues "the two conditions (being realized or realizable and being earned) are usually met by the time product or merchandise is delivered or services are rendered to customers, and revenues from manufacturing and selling activities and gains and losses from sales of other assets are commonly recognized at time of sale (usually meaning delivery)" [footnote reference omitted]. In addition, paragraph 84(d) states that "If services are rendered or rights to use assets extend continuously over time (for example, interest or rent), reliable measures based on contractual prices established in advance...
