Entrepreneurial Economics is the study of the entrepreneur and entrepreneurship within the economy. The accumulation of factors of production per se does not explain economic development. They are necessary inputs in production, but they are not sufficient for economic growth.

In 1969 the first meeting of a European group of scientists, later known
as the WHO Drug Utilization Research Group (DURC), was convened in Oslo,
Norway. At that time drug utilization data were not available to research
workers in most places and only a limited number of countries were
represented. The number of countries and research workers interested in this
field has however grown steadily over the years. The International DURG
meetings which have bee...

Executive Summary: This report covers the 6-month reporting period from April 1, 1990, through September 30, 1990. It provides an account of the major work of the Office of Inspector General by describing significant problems and deficiencies we identified during our audits, investigations, and reviews as well as the recommendations we made for corrective action. We also describe the Foundation's responses to our findings and acknowledge management's contribution to our mission.
Introduction: the diagnostic challenge
Dengue is diagnosed by isolation of the virus, by serology, or by molecular diagnostic
methods. Although several commercial kits for the diagnosis of dengue are
available, concerns have arisen with respect to the performance characteristics of
these kits. In theory, it should be possible to establish a diagnosis of on-going or
recent dengue infection during the acute or early convalescent stages of the disease.

Foreword: When we unveiled the first National Money Laundering Strategy last year, we sent a clear signal that our approach toward this vital issue had changed fundamentally. The 1999 Strategy was premised on the idea that money laundering threatened not only the United States by facilitating drug trafficking, organized crime, international terrorism, and other crimes, but that it also posed a threat in and of itself, by tainting our financial institutions and underminin...

The agency?s finance programs enhance the ability of lenders to provide long- and short-term loans to small businesses that might not qualify through normal lending channels. There are four basic types of SBA lending and equity investment programs available: the 7(a) Loan Guaranty Program, the 7(m) Microloan Progra...

Foreword: Pretrial services programs can be valuable resources for making significant improvements in the criminal justice system because they are used in the early stages of the criminal case process. Unnecessary detention before trial not only results in unnecessary jail costs, it also deprives defendants of their liberty. From a policy perspective, decisions about detaining or releasing defendants should balance the benefits of release and the risk of flight or threat...
Summary: The Bush Administration identified transformation as a major goal for the Department of Defense (DOD) soon after taking office and has since worked to refine and implement its plans for defense transformation. Defense transformation can be defined as large-scale, discontinuous, and possibly disruptive changes in military weapons, concepts of operations (i.e., approaches to warfighting) and organization. The issue for the 109th Congress is how to take the concept...
Abstract: This study investigates the impact of two new process technologies developed in the ATP Flow-Control Machining Project: abrasive flow-control machining (AFCM) and non-traditional combustion chamber sizing (NCCS). These new processes offer large potential benefits to manufacturers who need to increase the functional precision and performance of cast-metal machine parts. The new processes advance the state-of-the-art in the finishing of cast-metal parts that carr...
