Economy

The current state of the economy in the United States is a feeble one, unable to consistently keep its head above water. While the economy is not currently in a recession, we may eventually fall victim to the first recession we?ve had in nearly ten years. Making a prediction on what exactly will happen to the US economy in the future will be extremely difficult. While there is much debate, many economists do not agree on what will become of the economy. Some feel that we will begin a recession over the next year, and some feel that there is significant policy implementation that will allow us to dodge a recession and regain our economic strength. There are many factors that make up the US economy. The means in which I will discuss the overall growth and current status of the economy is by analyzing the Gross Domestic Product, and discuss the factors that cause it to rise and fall. The GDP is the total aggregate income of the United States. It is comprised of consumption, investment, government spending, and net exports. The GDP in the fourth quarter of 2000 grew at a 1.1% annual rate, the lowest

The Market-Socialist Economy Of China

The Market-Socialist Economy Of China

?The planned economy is not tantamount to socialism,
because a capitalist country also practices the planned economy;
market economy is not tantamount to capitalism
because a socialist country also practices the market economy.
Both the planned economy and the market economy are economic means.
The essence of socialism is to emancipate and develop the
productive forces, destroy exploitation, eliminate polarization,
and attain common prosperity in the end.?
Deng Xiaoping, 1987

The building of the ?market-socialist economy? in China, is understood to be one of many great Chinese experiments, a continuation of the ?permanent revolution? that Mao upheld. The financial fragilities created by a growing public debt (particularly when one includes the debt owed to state-owned banks by state-owned enterprises), rising unemployment, and the difficulties in maintaining legitimacy based on traditional views of citizenship rights under ?socialism? are likely to push the Chinese Communist Party into the arms of corporate patrons (both domestic and foreign).
The Chinese leadership has a keen understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of a market-socialist economy, gained over years of experimentation and struggles to maintain economic growth while containing inflation. In a society that has significant centrifugal forces at work, it is considered necessary to keep a greater degree of control over a

Environmental Ethics Animal Testing

Environmental Ethics: Animal Testing

Are animals moral beings Is it morally right for a person to test products on animals I ask my self these questions when it comes to the topic of animal testing. All living organisms are part of an on going cycle; from the tiny particles in the air to plants to human beings, we?re all correlated in one way or another. All the things in between plants and humans need to be present for existence because one could not be present with out the other and the life cycle chain would be broken. This chain works in an orderly fashion that was created to be managed and ruled by natural resources not human judgment. So what happens when humans want to play that role of changing what has been determined (I.e. using certain species to experiment for human purposes.) This has been an environmental issue that has many environmental scientists concerned, because animals are used by experimenters as models to test human products. But who is to say that these animals are moral beings or not Who is to say animal testing is right or wrong In this research

Engine analysis is done on the generator to ensure it is operating properly and at optimum performance. A performance analysis of the number three ship service diesel generator was done aboard the T.S. Golden Bear. The indicated power for each cylinder was determined by using equation 1. From this equation we can determine how well the power is balanced across the six cylinders.

The Life Of Americans Versus That Of Canadian

The Life Of Americans Versus That Of Canadian

The Life of Americans Versus that of Canadians

Many Americans that live along the border with Canada traverse the short distance across the border every day, for many live in the US but work in Canada. The opposite is true for many Canadians that live along that great expanse we call the US Canadian border. Being from Canada but having lived in the US I?ve had the opportunity to see how residents in both countries live and how the economies work. As I look at both nations I cannot help but notice how interconnected their economies are and how standards of living in both are closely related.
A constitution-based federal republic with a strong democratic tradition runs the United States. While in comparison the Canadian government is a confederation with parliamentary democracy. Even today despite its current economic problems the US still has one of the top economies in the world with Canada not far behind. In 2002 the CIA world fact book reported the United States per capita GDP ranking 2nd at $37,600 with a real growth rate of 2.45%. (CIA) Canada was ranked 9th with a per capita GDP of $29,400 with a real growth rate surpassing that of the

1. The possible stockholders in this situation are the stockholders, the FDA, the Law firms, all of the accountant firm?s ea. The Big Five & Enron, the waste management services. The parties that are involved directly would be Enron, the stockholders, the Law offices, the Enron workers, George W. Bush (Arthur Anderson was a big help in getting him elected into office), and the Wall Street Journal.
2. Gross Misconduct-Behavior not conforming to prevailing standard or laws.
Negligence-Dishonest or Bad management by persons entrusted or engaged to act on another?s behalf.
Arthur Andersen is guilty of Gross Misconduct because they did not adhere to the laws established by GAAP.
Their rights to be an auditing firm can be taken away, and then they can also be taken to court on not adhering to the laws established.
3. It should be illegal to work for a firm that is your client, the example are the
workers working for Enron were accountants for Andersen. They risks and potential dangers that can result from allowing this to happen can be that they can merge documents to make fake ones or even the code of conduct can be messed with.

Could The Fall Of The Towers Have Been Prevented

Could The Fall Of The Towers Have Been Prevented

It is a mystery that thousands of people will have to live for the rest of time. No one will ever know exactly how many people did die immediately from the impact of the plane crashes into the Twin Towers. But what happened in, and to, the stairwells will be looked at for quite some time. For the lucky 18 people who escaped from the floors above the crash location in the South Tower, due to a detour in the vertical path of the stairwell was the reason they had a clear escape path.

Contrary to initial reports, experts now know that the common office furnishings and equipment found on those floors also fueled the fires, not just the jet fuel that was consumed in about nine minutes. And with the other five stairwells destroyed and the standpipes severed, hundreds of people trapped on those floors died from the burning interiors and the resultant collapses.

The following picture was taken on September 11, it shows a firefighter ascending the North Tower stairwell.

This picture shows a problem that firefighters and human factors experts have known for decades: that the standard widths of most buildings staircases are inadequate for evacuation and

The History Of The Phillips Curve

The History Of The Phillips Curve

History of the Phillips Curve

The Phillips Curve has been vital for over 25 years in macroeconomics models. The curve was named after A. W. Phillips that in 1958 gave the best repression of the modern formulation of the curve. The technical representation is that w = f(u) which is related to the rate of wag inflation w via the function f() to the excess demand for labor as measured by U, the deviation of unemployment form its equilibrium or labor market clearing rate. (Humphrey p.5). The curve also transformed through the assumed markup of prices over wages into the price-change equation p=f(u), where p is the rate of price inflation. (Humphrey p. 5). This curve is still used and is the modern why to show the relationship between rate of change of price and unemployment.
The early versions of the Phillips Curve where focused around the idea that an inflation-unemployment trade-off. Some other versions where looked at by David Hume( 1752) and Henry Thornton(1802).

Engineering Ethics

Engineering Ethics

There are many character traits and assets that one could posses to be an engineer. These traits will differ between individuals, and how they perform their job. In the engineering world, there are many issues that engineers go through that are not apparent to most people. Examples of this include organizational, ethical, and legal pressures that an engineer must face. Ethics would probably bee the most important of these factors. The engineering code of ethics must be followed in the course of a job, and if it?s neglected in any way, an engineer can most likely lose his employment, and respect by fellow engineers and companies. I believe that some of the character traits I posses that would help me succeed in the computer engineering field are honesty, dedication, time management skills, and a positive work ethic.

Honesty plays a very important role in the workplace. If employees were to lie to one another about the job they are performing, what work would get done Even though dishonesty is wrong, it occurs very often in the world of business.

Autobody Design – Nuccio Bertone

Autobody Design – Nuccio Bertone

Auto Body Design ? Nuccio Bertone
Nuccio Bertone
There have been many people involved in the evolution of the automotive design industry. Some have stood out in this field of styling and have managed to keep in mind the concerns of appearance, shape, texture and color, while and still creating masterpieces of art in design.
Some of these designs are considered to have come from the country rather than the person with a vision. One such individual who became a legend in this design industry was Giuseppe Bertone. Born in 1914. 2 years after his father Giovanni Bertone set up a carriage building and repair facility in Turin Italy. Few knew at the time that Giuseppe would have a major impact on the world of design. Giuseppi known as Nuccio started to work for his fathers business at the age of 20 in 1934 that year the Bertone Company exhibited a special-bodied Fiat Ardita, the Superaerodynamica at the Turin Auto Show. I
In the years that followed WW II, Nuccio Bertone raced Fiats, OSCAs, Maseratis, and Ferraris, an activity that taught him much about aerodynamics, cooling, and vehicle dynamics.
