It will take years, years the emperor may not have. Someone’s causing trouble, and war is coming.Will the empire’s new navy be ready in time? This is the fourth book of the Empire Series.Interview with Rich Weyand:The first trilogy of Empire pretty much left everything in order. What happens in the second trilogy?A. The first trilogy dealt with domestic issues, particularly corruption, which affected everything from the courts to military procurement, from who got promoted in the military to who got what commercial monopolies in the economy.

With enough insider information and a million dollars, you can go broke in a year. "What I am is a realist. I always knew I'd like what I'm doing. Oh, perhaps it would have been nice to be a major-league baseball player, but that's where the realism comes in." "If a graduating MBA were to ask me 'How do I get rich in a hurry?' I would not respond with quotations from Ben Franklin or Horatio Alger, but would instead hold my nose with one hand and point with the other toward Wall Street." "Wall Street is the only place that people ride to work in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway."

From the past to the future, the development of human civilization has been closely related to the Earth's soil. However, we are now on the planet with the productive forces of soil resources that are gradually exhausting. In many agricultural areas, crop yields have been devastated by heavy soil erosion. Global warming, on the other hand, accelerates microbial greenhouse gas released in soils and has a key role in recent climate change. In the first part of this book, we show the challenges faced by human beings in the 21st century because of the direct and indirect responses of the soil expansion made by human past and future activities. We also stress that soil and forest are the future survival and development key factors for human beings. The circular economy is a philosophy of sustainable management. More specifically, it is a concept of zero waste. If the waste can be fully recycled or converted into energy, it will achieve the core values of the circular economy as well as the highest level of energy efficiency. The second part of this book presents an overview of the development of waste energy in three countries in the East Asian, namely, Taiwan, China, and Japan.
This book focuses on the sources and impacts of research and development (R&D) and innovation in Norway. The Norwegian case is rather special. One the one hand, the level of R&D and innovation is low in Norway compared to other industrialized countries. On the other hand, the Norwegian economy has proven to be very robust when it comes to economic growth. This is combined with an alleged low tech industrial structure. The words puzzle and paradox figures predominantly in the discussions about Norway s innovative and economic performance. It is in this context that this book explores and analyzes the main sources and effects of R&D and innovation. This book is organized in three different parts that examine the sources of innovation and their links to performance at different levels of analysis. In the first part the book explores the existence of sectoral specialization patterns linked to technology and entry & exit dynamics in the Norwegian economy. The second part is devoted to analyzing the main sources of R&D and innovation among firms.In the third part we explore how innovation policies interact with the firm level.
Pakistan's domestic edible oil production doesn't meet the need of the country. Annually about $1.5 billion is spent on its import to meet the demand. In this way, edible oil stood at the top in the import of food group and on number second after petroleum group in the total import. This huge drain on our hard-earned foreign exchange resources is a great challenge for our planners, agricultural scientists and extension workers. Any attempt to help in amelioration of this worsening situation is the need of the day. Among existing oilseed crops rapeseed/mustard and sunflower have assumed special position in the agriculture economy of Pakistan. Much of the research efforts have been directed towards the improvement of these oilseed crops. The book in hand can furnish baseline information and is highly recommended for every agricultural library.
The relationship between trade, growth and the balance-of-payments (BOP) has been a subject of considerable interest and empirical scrutiny in growth and development economics. This study addresses the following question: How did trade liberalization affect the BOP and growth of the Turkish economy over the period 1960-2004?, a question that has become even more crucial after the financial crises in the 1990s and early 2000s. The issue has been investigated through a case study of Turkey from 1960 to 2004 with the application of first- and second-generation balance of payments-constrained growth (BPCG) models developed by Keynesian economists. The study is of interest to academics, policy makers and professionals in the fields of economic growth and development, and international trade. In addition, analysts of balance of payments who may be interested in developing countries'' economies under financial liberalization would benefit from the work at hand. Needless to say, it is invaluable to students of the issue.
