over a period of time. When the price level rises, each unit of currency buys fewer goods and services; consequently, inflation is also an erosion in the purchasing power of money – a loss of real value in the internal medium of exchange and unit of account in the economy. A chief measure of price inflation is the inflation rate , the annualized percentage change in a general price index (normally the Consumer Price Index ) over time. Inflation's effects on an economy are manifold and can be simultaneously positive and negative . Negative effects of inflation include a decrease in the real value of money and other monetary ...
Dynamic Pricing and Low Income Customers -- Can they Co-Exist?
n regulatory proceedings involving business cases for advanced metering infrastructure, the benefits of dynamic pricing often play a prominent role.  Several studies have shown that dynamic pricing can provide substantial benefits to utilities and customers.  It does so by lowering peak demand during hours when the power system is experiencing critical conditions such as extremely high prices or threats to reliability. Hence, dynamic pricing results in avoiding expensive capacity and energy costs in the long term and lowering wholesale market prices in the short term.   Few would dispute the positive impact of dynamic pricing ... market research, surveys and trends

Hits & Misses - November 1, 2005
(Business 2.0) – [HIT] The power of positive pricing. While U.S. automakers were busy sacrificing profit margins for sales volume in June and July with their employee discount programs, Honda stuck with its sticker prices--and ultimately stuck it to the competition. In August, as waning interest in the promotions led to a 6.8 percent year-over-year sales drop for the Big Three, Honda chalked up a record month. Sales grew by 19 percent over the previous year thanks to solid performance in both sedans and trucks and a 243 percent jump in sales of hybrid vehicles--proof, it seems, that growing numbers of Americans prefer ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
GE Energy - 2010 Press releases
Even though many U.S. consumers are in the dark when it comes to knowledge about smart grid innovations, those who are enlightened about the technology’s capabilities are ready to upgrade—especially when their lights are out. In the wake of recent Nor’easters that left hundreds of thousands without power for days, nearly four of every five Americans (78 percent) familiar with the term smart grid say that it would help reduce the number of power outages and restore power more quickly when outages do occur, according to a survey released today by GE (NYSE: GE). Utilities like Con Edison, Connecticut Light & Power Co. and New ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
TURNING ROCKS, STONES into gem business
At the start of her mining business, Sylvia Mariano, general manager of Minex Crystals, and her Australian business partner wanted to mine stones in the Philippines and export them. But Mariano found out that our local stones and crystals could not compete in the international market when pitted against the gems of Brazil and India. Pricing, according to her, was also a deterrent. Moreover, she said, mining in the Philippines is risky since it requires exploring the remote areas of Mindanao and other far-flung provinces (“and dealing with rebels and leftists for myself and my staff’s safety!”). “Thus we ended up importing from ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Concerned about your job status? You should be
In 2000, 136 million Americans held jobs and the Dow Jones industrial average hovered just over 11,000. Ten years later, 139 million Americans held jobs and the Dow hovered just under 11,000. Talk about your lost decades. After growing by a robust 2.5% annually during the last 20 years of the 20th century, job creation crept along at a mere 0.5% per year during the first decade of the new century, according to the Economic Cycle Research Institute. Everyone, or so it seems, is concerned about their job status - as well they should be. Pricing power is non-existent. Adjusted for inflation, wages have been falling or stagnant for ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Nuclear Issues Paper
Nuclear power has been presented as providing net environmental benefits.� Specifically, nuclear power makes no contribution to global warming through the emission of carbon dioxide.� Nuclear power also produces no notable sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, or particulates.� When nuclear power is produced, nothing is burned in a conventional sense.� Heat is produced through nuclear fission, not oxidation. Nuclear power does produce spent fuels of roughly the same mass and volume as the fuel that the reactor takes in.� These spent fuels are kept within the reactor�s fuel assemblies, thus ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Nuclear Energy is the most certain future source.
Incidentally, I'm Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, emeritus (means retired) as of 2001 January 1. Here's my main page . I write about sustainability as a volunteer public service. I am not professionally involved with nuclear energy. Here's a new page on Nuclear Energy Now . It is motivated by the Bush Administration in the U.S. having tentatively re-opened the question of building new nuclear plants in the U.S. I hope they persist and are successful. One of the major requirements for sustaining human progress is an adequate source of energy. The current largest sources of energy are the ...

The Power Of Positive Thinking | Intuit Community
       I have recently discovered a wonderful insight into what brings success to those who seek it. Have you ever woken up in the morning feeling sick, tired and unhappy or like the walls are closing in around you? I know I certainly have. And I know that if you stand upright and have a pulse, you have had a day like that as well. What I have come to understand though, is that it is times like these when we determine whether we will find success in our lives. The miracle of that moment when we are faced with such negative influences is that we have a choice. An opportunity to decide whether we are going ...
