In this capacity, he has been one of the chief intellectual architects of the movement to modernize progressive politics for the global age. Called "Bill Clinton's idea mill," PPI's policy analysis and proposals were the source for many of the "New Democrat" innovations that figured prominently in national politics over the past two decades. The Institute also has been integral to the spread of "Third Way" thinking to center-left parties in Europe and elsewhere.

by its inhabitants and neighbours. As the distinction between "Roman Empire" and "Byzantine Empire" is purely a modern convention, it is not possible to assign a date of separation, but an important point is Emperor Constantine I 's transfer in 324 of the capital from Nicomedia (in Anatolia ) to Byzantium on the Bosphorus , which became Constantinople (alternatively " New Rome "). During its existence of over a thousand years the Empire remained one of the most powerful economic, cultural, and military forces in Europe, despite setbacks and territorial losses, especially during the Roman–Persian
fantasy election drafts
Gilgemesh has voiced his disappointment, not only in the candidates, but at playing in a rigged game all together.  The way I see, it, if the game is boring, cheer on the cheerleaders. While it is true, in the remaining Primaries, if you are a Republican or Independent, you have no real options, and in Pennsylvania, most likely you won’t have much of an impact on the November Election, but that’s not a reason to head for your car to beat the traffic and just listen to the rest of the game on the radio.  I’ve always enjoyed the primaries, not for any information they provide, but for the entertainment.  As ... market research, surveys and trends

of the White House.  At the time, I was on the NPR staff and thought that the six-month review was over and that we’d all be going back to our home agencies.  But it turns out that ceremony was just the beginning. The report contained nearly 400 recommendations with over 1,200 specific governmentwide and agency-specific action items.  Vice President Gore asked a small group of the more than 250 staff on the original reinvention team to remain behind.  I was one of the few to continue, being asked to help implement the recommendations. The effort extended to the end of the Clinton Administration and claimed a number of successes . market research, surveys and trends

Problems of Institutional Instability and Green Revolution Bureaucracy in Ethiopia
Allow me to take the liberty to respond to the concerns of two authors, Berhanu Tesfaye and Wonemhunegn Ezezew, who underlined the importance of institutional stability/change when considering green revolution and industrial decentralization in Ethiopia. In my previous postings I mentioned the need for institutional reforms passing. To bring the on-going discussion to another level I find it necessary to suggest ways of accommodating their concerns. For the sake of avoiding unnecessary misunderstanding, I would like to summarize Berhanu Tesfaye discussion in terms of the concept of policy implementation style. This concept ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Washington Post Series Overlooks Intel Success
President George W. Bush's rebuilding of an intelligence community broken and demoralized under Bill Clinton should be embraced by conservatives as the U.S.'s best response to the September 11 attacks. Clinton had so downsized and discarded the Central Intelligence Agency, and 15 other intelligence agencies, that his first CIA director quit. George Tenet, the longest-running CIA chief under Clinton, later wrote that his agency was in Chapter 11 bankruptcy as Clinton was leaving the presidency. The National Intelligence Agency, the nation's listening post, was going deaf, Tenet wrote. It had not kept up with basic ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The Rise and Fall of Bureaucracy
Paul Krugman calls 1913 the high-water mark of the First Global Economy. He notes, that over the preceding century, the world economy had been transformed by technology and the widespread acceptance of the belief that free markets, with secure property rights, were the best way to achieve economic progress. After 1913 the market atrophied -- long-distance trade shrunk, private international movements of capital virtually disappeared, and a third of the world rejected private property. How does one explain this reversal? Perhaps, more importantly, how does one explain the even more astonishing reversal of fortune that, at the ...
