Retooling for Growth: Building a 21st Century Economy in America's Older Industrial Areas (American Assembly)
Retooling for Growth: Building a 21st Century Economy
Slow job growth, declining home values, a diminishing tax base, and concentrated poverty are but a few of the growing obstacles for well-established but struggling cities. Challenged by decades of globalization, technological change, and dramatic demographic shifts away from the urban core, these former industrial powerhouses, particularly in the Northeast and Midwest, have been eclipsed by burgeoning American cities with a viable niche in the new economy. In R etooling for Growth, experts present new frameworks, cutting-edge analysis, and innovative policy solutions for the nation's government, business, civic, and community leaders to sculpt a sustainable and supportable economy for older industrial areas. The unique focus on rehabilitating weak market cities outlines ideas for reshaping the role of public agencies, the workforce, business organizations, and technology. Implementation of these measures addresses challenges such as fostering entrepreneurship, reducing poverty and inequality, and maintaining and augmenting the number of skilled professionals who reside and work in a community, among others. This collection of essays offers practical, achievable strategies for revitalizing industrial areas and building upon the potential of existing but overlooked resources of eco...

Carolina Custom Cages Reptile GU10 Halogen Basking Light Assembly with 54" AC Cord
Carolina Custom Cages Reptile GU10 Halogen Basking Light
Reptile GU10 Halogen Basking Light Assembly with 54" AC cord by Carolina Custom Cages will allow you to use the increasingly popular GU10 halogen basking bulbs. The GU10 Halogen Basking Bulbs are much more compact and don't require "big dome" style reflectors. This gives you much greater flexibility for planning your habitat's basking areas. The ceramic socket securely engages GU10 halogen bulbs (much safer than the tiny pin MR11 types). Their basking heat output is much more focused than traditional basking bulbs and their smaller size allow them to be used under the screen mesh common with many cages. This allows you to use lower wattage bulbs; better efficiency, economy and effectiveness! We offer 20w, 35w, 50w and 75w halogen basking bulbs separately; as well as Reptile Digital IR Surface Thermometers.

America's Assembly Line
The mechanized assembly line was invented in 1913 and has been in continuous operation ever since. It is the most familiar form of mass production. Both praised as a boon to workers and condemned for exploiting them, it has been celebrated and satirized. (We can still picture Chaplin's little tramp trying to keep up with a factory conveyor belt.) In America's Assembly Line, David Nye examines the industrial innovation that made the United States productive and wealthy in the twentieth century. The assembly line developed at the Ford Motor Company in 1913 for the mass production of Model Ts - first created and then serving an expanding mass market. It also transformed industrial labor. By 1980, Japan had reinvented the assembly line as a system of "lean manufacturing." American industry reluctantly adopted the new approach. Nye describes this evolution and the new global landscape of increasingly automated factories, with fewer industrial jobs in America and questionable working conditions in developing countries. A century after Ford's pioneering innovation, the assembly line continues to evolve toward more sustainable manufacturing.

The Wages of Oil: Parliaments and Economic Development in Kuwait and the UAE
The Wages of Oil: Parliaments and Economic Development
The contrast between Kuwait and the UAE today illustrates the vastly different possible futures facing the smaller states of the Gulf. Dubai's rulers dream of creating a truly global business center, a megalopolis of many millions attracting immigrants in great waves from near and far. Kuwait, meanwhile, has the most spirited and influential parliament in any of the oil-rich Gulf monarchies. In The Wages of Oil, Michael Herb provides a robust framework for thinking about the future of the Gulf monarchies. The Gulf has seen enormous changes in recent years, and more are to come. Herb explains the nature of the changes we are likely to see in the future. He starts by asking why Kuwait is far ahead of all other Gulf monarchies in terms of political liberalization, but behind all of them in its efforts to diversify its economy away from oil. He compares Kuwait with the United Arab Emirates, which lacks Kuwait's parliament but has moved ambitiously to diversify. This data-rich book reflects the importance of both politics and economic development issues for decision-makers in the Gulf. Herb develops a political economy of the Gulf that ties together a variety of issues usually treated separately: Kuwait's National Assembly, Dubai's real estate boom, the paucity of citizen labor in ...
