Environmental compliance guidebook beyond US water quality regulations by Christine Herndon( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guidebook is the result of working with agencies in the water sector over the past several years. Although water and wastewater utilities are intimately familiar with the requirements to meet their missions, whether delivering safe drinking water or treating wastewater and meeting discharge requirements, they are often much less familiar with other environmental regulations such as those governing the management of hazardous waste. Furthermore, most agencies do not have a person, much less a department, dedicated to ensuring environmental compliance. Therefore, the need for a guidebook such as this became apparent, and through the support of the American Water Works Association (AWWA), Water Utility Council (WUC), and the Water Industry Technical Action Fund (WITAF), it became a reality. Additionally, AWWA's legal advisors reviewed the guidebook to ensure it accurately describes and references the regulatory requirements. Water is a vital resource that no one can live without. Assisting utilities in complying with environmental regulations to minimize their risk is critical to ensure that resources available for capital improvements and other projects will enable facilities to fulfill their mission
Reforming the international monetary system by Emmanuel Farhi( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We propose a simple model of the international monetary system. We study the world supply and demand for reserve assets denominated in different currencies under a variety of scenarios: a Hegemon vs. a multipolar world; abundant vs. scarce reserve assets; a gold exchange standard vs. a floating rate system; away from vs. at the zero lower bound (ZLB). We rationalize the Triffin dilemma, which posits the fundamental instability of the system, as well as the common prediction regarding the natural and beneficial emergence of a multipolar world, the Nurkse warning that a multipolar world is more unstable than a Hegemon world, and the Keynesian argument that a scarcity of reserve assets under a gold standard or at the ZLB is recessive. We show that competition among few countries in the issuance of reserve assets can have perverse effects on the total supply of reserve assets. We analyze forces that lead to the endogenous emergence of a Hegemon. Our analysis is both positive and normative
Public debts nuts, bolts and worries by Barry J Eichengreen( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The importance of fiscal discipline for developed countries has long been ignored or minimised, because they seem able to borrow and to keep borrowing for decades. The crisis has shown that discipline may be slow to assert itself, but has acutely painful consequences when it does. This 13th Geneva Report on the World Economy is devoted to fiscal policy reforms in the US, Europe and Japan. It offers a common political-economy framework to diagnose the need for fiscal consolidation and proposes institutional solutions rooted in that diagnosis. It includes a detailed analysis of how we got to the current situation, as well as a look at the very long run, when demographic factors already in place will sharpen an already degraded situation. The political-economy framework presents the common pool interpretation of the deficit bias, the widespread tendency of demographic governments to spend more than they can collect in taxes. It arises because those who benefit from public spending are not the same as those who pay taxes. The former ask for more spending, the latter ask for less taxation, and governments need to please voters to be (re)elected. The policy response must address these fundamental characteristics of advanced democracies by adopting institutions and rules that lessen the common pool problem. Because electoral systems differ widely from one country to another, leading to different forms of common pool effects, no single institutional arrangement is best suited everywhere. This report links political systems to forms of institutional arrangements. At this juncture, when the sovereign debt crisis is acute in the Eurozone, menacing in the US and potentially festering in Japan, the report argues that fiscal stabilization is easier the faster the economy is growing. It also advances suggestions on how to make debts sustainable through growth-enhancing measures."--Page 4 of cover
