In this study, we test whether regional growth in 11 European countries depends on financial development and suggest the use of cost- and profit-efficiency estimates as quality measures for financial institutions.

More credit provided by efficient banks exerts an independent growth effect in addition to the direct quantity and ...

Agriculture accounted for only 20% of net material product and 10% of employment before the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991. Armenian mines produce copper , zinc , gold , and lead . The vast majority of energy is produced with imported fuel, including gas and nuclear fuel (for its one nuclear power plant) from Russia; the main domestic energy source is hydroelectric. Small amounts of coal, gas, and petroleum have not yet ...

2 Judson ISD trustees face election challenges
Growth and finance are among the top issues facing the Judson Independent School District, candidates for the board of trustees say. Voters in Districts 1, 2 and 4 will go to the polls to elect board members this spring. Richard LaFoille, who represents District 2, is unopposed in his bid for re-election.

The Multi-issue Agendas that Challenge the Two Party System
It seems pretty obvious to me, a moderate independent who tries to look at the many facets of a complex social problem, that our present two party political system is failing in providing the citizenry of the United States with a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Numerous contentious issues are brought to our attention daily because we are the registered voters who must elect the candidates for public office. Unfortunately, tough issues continue to be unaddressed promptly by the governmen. It may be too idealistic to assume that a democracy will eventually solve a country's social problems in a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
