The U.S. health care system is in critical condition--but this should come as a surprise to no one. Yet until now the solutions proposed have been unworkable, pie-in-the-sky plans that have had little chance of becoming law and even less of succeeding. In Code Red, David Dranove, one of the nation's leading experts on the economics of healthcare, proposes a set of feasible solutions that address access, efficiency, and quality. Dranove offers pragmatic remedies, some of them controversial, all of them crucially needed to restore the system to vitality. He pays special attention to the plight of the uninsured, and proposes a new direction that promises to make premier healthcare for all Americans a national reality. Setting his story against the backdrop of healthcare in the United States from the early 20th century to the present day, he reveals why a century of private and public sector efforts to reform the ailing system have largely failed. He draws on insights from economics to diagnose the root causes of rising costs and diminishing access to quality care, such as inadequate information, perverse incentives, and malfunctioning insurance markets. Dranove describes the ongoing efforts to revive the system--including the rise of consumerism, the quality movement, and initiatives to expand access - and argues that these efforts are doomed to fail without more fundamental, systemic, market-based reforms. Code Red lays the foundation for a thriving health care system and is indispensable for anyone trying to make sense of the thorny issues of health care reform. 1. Language: English.

Bankrupting America: How Government Interventio...
9,95 € *

Before we can fix our economic problems, we must first diagnose what is causing them. Many of our political and intellectual leaders call for more government intervention to fix the economy. They tell us that it creates jobs, corrects "market failures", and boosts economic growth. And they insist that we need such intervention to help the poor, to coddle the consumer, and to protect the worker. But they're dead wrong. Government intervention is not the solution to our economic problems; it's the cause. Bankrupting America: How Government Intervention Is Wrecking the Economy analyzes all the major categories of government intervention in the economy - from taxes, deficits, antitrust, and price controls to regulation, protectionism, central banking, and wealth redistribution. In this book, you'll find out: Why protectionist policies such as tariffs destroy more jobs than they save Why the antitrust laws penalize the most productive, successful companies Why price controls cause shortages Why the minimum wage increases unemployment Why regulation stifles productivity Why high taxes, chronic deficits, and excessive government debt hinder economic growth Why government-provided services cost twice as much as those provided by the private sector Why private charity is more effective than government welfare Why the Federal Reserve's manipulation of interest rates exacerbates the business cycle Why government "stimulus" spending during a recession does not accelerate a recovery And much more Backed by numerous academic studies and sound economic logic, the conclusion is incontestable: Government intervention simply doesn't work. It stifles saving, investment, and capital accumulation. All of this translates to higher unemployment, higher consumer prices, and lower economic growth. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Nagle.

The Deep Learning Revolution
18,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

How deep learning—from Google Translate to driverless cars to personal cognitive assistants—is changing our lives and transforming every sector of the economy. The deep learning revolution has brought us driverless cars, the greatly improved Google Translate, fluent conversations with Siri and Alexa, and enormous profits from automated trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Deep learning networks can play poker better than professional poker players and defeat a world champion at Go. In this book, Terry Sejnowski explains how deep learning went from being an arcane academic field to a disruptive technology in the information economy. Sejnowski played an important role in the founding of deep learning, as one of a small group of researchers in the 1980s who challenged the prevailing logic-and-symbol based version of AI. The new version of AI Sejnowski and others developed, which became deep learning, is fueled instead by data. Deep networks learn from data in the same way that babies experience the world, starting with fresh eyes and gradually acquiring the skills needed to navigate novel environments. Learning algorithms extract information from raw data; information can be used to create knowledge; knowledge underlies understanding; understanding leads to wisdom. Someday a driverless car will know the road better than you do and drive with more skill; a deep learning network will diagnose your illness; a personal cognitive assistant will augment your puny human brain. It took nature many millions of years to evolve human intelligence; AI is on a trajectory measured in decades. Sejnowski prepares us for a deep learning future.

Organizations in Jordan have invested heavily in employee training. However, these training efforts may not be as effective. One area of particular interest is learning transfer, or the extent to which learning from training is applied on the job. Recent research efforts have led to the development of the Learning Transfer System Inventory (LTSI), the only valid and reliable measure of key transfer system factors. This study validated the constructs of the LTSI for use in Jordan. By doing so, HRD practitioners in Jordan can use such instrument to diagnose early problems with learning transfer, the key to training effectiveness and individual performance. The LTSI was translated through a rigorous cross-cultural translation process which involved forward and back translations, pilot testing, and the establishment of equivalency using objective measures of evaluation. The ALTSI was administered to 500 employees employed by 28 public and private sector organizations operating in Jordan who have attended nine different types of training. Responses were received from 450 employees with a response rate of 90%. The results showed that 18 factors were valid for use in Jordan.

Expert System to Diagnose Spinning Process Faults
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

There are few expert systems already developed for the textile sector but there are many untapped sectors of the textiles and one of them is spinning. As day by day the yarn quality requirements are becoming more stringent but they mainly depend upon the human beings who are expensive and are mortal as well, hence use of expert system is becoming more crucial. This expert system can diagnose spinning process faults and by removing respective causes of these faults it is possible to produce high quality yarn. It can also reduce the costs by enabling the lower paid people to do the same task which is performed by the higher paid. In the development of an expert system the knowledge base is the key part and in this case it is developed by using data of spinning process faults which was gathered by capturing the knowledge of domain experts. Expert systems are free of any limitations that are associated with the human experts. Also, this tool can significantly reduce the training and support costs and can increase employee and employer satisfaction.

The tourism sector is considered as one of the priorities of the administrative perspective. It is a mean of overcoming the challenges in order to guarantee the outputs the tourism organizations/sectors. This is in addition to the efforts made by the government to help these organizations. If these efforts are not administered and managed in an effective manner, it would not be possible to accomplish the social, financial and political aspects which are in parallel to the spending. This legitimizes the extra attention to the intellectual capital and competitive strategies in the tourism division in general and more specifically to the elegant hotels in the city of Erbil. To achieve the current Study objectives, the High-end hotels in Erbil were selected to identify the role of the most important dimensions of intellectual capital in the competitive strategies in these hotels and to diagnose the nature of the relationship and influence between them. Thus, the importance of the current Study is to address two main variables and their application in the tourism sector. One is to assess the current conditions of the hotels in Erbil and the other is factors supporting its development.
