Especially grim have been developments in Europe. In OECD countries in North America, unemployment has declined more than in Europe in recent years. In Japan, the unemployment rate has traditionally been much lower than in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The need to meet the challenge
An email circulating these days is that of a speech made by former Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar at a dinner in London for the Sri Lankan cricket team years ago when he was en-route to the UN in New York. An interesting aside he made was about the manner in which skipper Arjuna Ranatunga walked to the boundary line (but did not cross it) and the resultant consequences after spin wiz Muttiah Muralitharan was 'no balled' by an Australian umpire for allegedly 'throwing' the ball illegally rather than bowling it properly. Recalling the incident, Kadirgamar said the President of the Cricket Board had called ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

WikiAnswers - What is the difference between theory of absolute ...
Those theories both refer to international trade, however absolute advantage was mentioned earlier. According to it, a trade between 2 countries is possible only if one has absolute advantage (produces a good with less costs or with less time) and other has absolute disadvantage in producing that good but at the same time it must have an absolute advantage in producing the secong good. If a country produces a good better (cheaper/faster), it would specialize on it and export. Theory assumes that only 2 counties and 2 goods exist, no other costs except for labour are taken into account. First answer by Dushtakow . Last edit by
