was implemented to provide data on the United States' International Portfolio Investment and Capital Movements, known today as TIC. The data was collected and reported by various agencies over the years, such as the Bureau of Economic Administration and the census, but problems arose due to a lack of interaction between agencies. Problems existed with the type and quality of information in the early years, so the Office of Federal Statistical Policy and Standards coordinated statistical efforts across agencies and it ran smoothly for many decades.

Greece is Restructuring Debt Now « naked capitalism
of a development that has passed most commentators by, namely, that Greece is starting to restructure state debts. This hasn’t yet gotten the attention it merits because it’s bonds issued by particular government bodies (in this case, the Greek state hospital system) and the investors aren’t big Eurobanks but suppliers. Old outstanding coupon bonds are being replaced with zero coupon bonds. The relevant ministries contend this amounts to a 19% haircut; Dizard thinks the discount rate is too low (hence the proper discount is even greater) and an expert who deals in particularly exotic debt thinks this paper will ... market research, surveys and trends
Will treasuries kill climate deal?
There is a grave danger that in December, world leaders will gather in Copenhagen to decide on a new global climate-change regime, only to find its chances effectively wrecked by the treasuries and finance ministries of the rich developed world. There are a number of potential deal breakers in these negotiations. One of them is the fact that developing countries will no longer let themselves be sidelined. In the past, developing countries have been brought on board by promises of financial support. But all they got was the creation of a couple of funds that subsequently stayed more or less empty. This has not gone unnoticed, and ... market research, surveys and trends


IMF Survey Supplement on the Fund, September 2001
The rise in world oil prices during 2000, weaker equity markets, a slump in the high-tech sector––especially in the United States––and continued difficulties in the financial and corporate sectors in Japan are among the factors that have dampened world economic growth in 2001. Global output growth is now projected to come in at slightly less than 3 percent, down from almost 5 percent in 2000. Although short-term prospects have worsened significantly during 2001, the most likely outcome remains a relatively mild and short-lived slowdown, with growth recovering in 2002–03. Nevertheless, there ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

But I agree, you could also see the half full glass here : It means, if the BOT haven’t piled up USD, the THB would have been even stronger. I remind you the obsession of virtually every asian central banks : weaken their local currencies versus the US Dollar, in order to boost, stimulate their dear exports. Each countries use different tools, but with the same cheap short term obsession : the Beggar thy neighbour policy. China for instance sets the exchange-rate (It’s much more convenient) because China is an authorian (to use the word “communist” would be an insult to Karl Marx…) state and because ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Google Answers: I before E
frodo2366-ga, The Merriam-Webster 9th Collegiate Dictionary contains 4,979 i-before-e words (of which 332 violate the i-before-e rule), and 1,191 e-before-i words (of which, only 78 follow the 'i-before-e-except-after-c rule). Many of the e-before-i words do, in fact, have a long "A" sound to them, but many do not. Still, the bulk of the words have the i-before-e combination. So, i before e is the definite winner, but not by as much as one might suppose. Cheers, pafalafa-ga ================ source of word lists: ...
