The mandatory nature of recommendations made by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) in the UK has highlighted inherent difficulties in the process of disinvestment in existing technologies to fund NICE-approved technologies.

for the factories that formed the basis of the city's economy for a century. The city of Lowell was started in the 1820s as a money-making venture and social project referred to as "The Lowell Experiment", and quickly became America's largest textile center. However, within approximately a century, the decline and collapse of that industry in New England placed the city into a deep recession. Lowell's "rebirth", partially tied to Lowell National Historical Park , has made it a model for other former industrial towns, although the city continues to struggle with de-industrialization and ...
Early Childhood, Economic Stimulus and the Story We Keep ...
Early childhood programs are generally assumed to be more or less worthless in the court of popular opinion.  Some people think they are great IF you can afford it.  Some people actually think they are bad (free babysitting for lazy people, parents should teach children at home, the “Nanny State” trying to hijack the minds of their children, etc..).  When budgets are to be cut, and sacrifices to be made, no fiscal surgeon falters before cutting what appears to be a easy-to-reach chunk of fat blocking the strained arteries of any given budget.  When compared to other line items, early education and child care funding ... market research, surveys and trends

It is possible to have a seemingly successful society in the short run by choosing to run an economy on political ideology, but in the long run economic forces overwhelm the political structures which have tried to ... market research, surveys and trends

from The FDC reveals what many already know: children and families have been facing more and more stressors during the recession, and it's taking its toll. The FDC's annual Child and Youth Well-Being Index is a composite of 28 indicators in 7 domains that directly impact the overall well-being of children.

June 29 (Bloomberg) -- India’s decision to free gasoline and diesel prices from state control will help in selling shares of Indian Oil Corp., the nation’s second-biggest refiner, Chairman B.M.
