Downloadable (with restrictions)! This article attempts to determine whether controlling for the time-varying risk premium would improve the ability of the federal funds futures to predict the Federal Open Market Committees (FOMC) decision regarding the direction and magnitude of changes in the federal funds target rate at different forecast horizons. This is done using an appropriate categorical dependent variable model, which is estimated using real-time monthly data covering the period from January 1994 through September 2008. Following Piazzesi and Swanson (2008), control is made for the risk premium using a number of business-cycle indicators including nonfarm payrolls, the industrial production index, the help wanted index, and a measure of the Treasury yield spread. The results indicate that accounting for the risk premium modestly improves the predictive performance of the futures rate for the longer forecast horizons. Moreover, such a control appears to alleviate the over-prediction of
Downloadable! Despite the vast literature dealing with the impact of the subsidies on world cotton prices, there is no consensus regarding the quantification of these effects. The aim of this paper is to contribute to this literature through the implementation of a meta-regression analysis. This methodology allows us to: (i) identify the main sources of heterogeneity between the primary studies, (ii) give some tracks to improve the modeling, (iii) provide a reliable quantification of the removal of subsidies on world cotton prices. Relying on the estimation of various models to derive robust results, our findings show that a withdrawal of US subsidies would increase the world cotton price by around 10%.

In December 2012, the Ministry of Health launched the Citizens Health Portal, where all citizens have secure and private access to their medical records from public institutions, as well as registration information and relevant healthcare information. HIM professionals will also be key players in ensuring that the system remains secure and reassuring that the public keeps its trust in the system. Brasil has focused on creating a state-of-the-art electronic health system and national data collection of health information has grown in importance in Brasil over the last decade. The Brasilian Federal Government, through the Ministry of Health, has a bold challenge in implementing its CNS project, i.e. the National Health Card. Its goal is to have all its citizens records stored in a single national database by the end of 2015.. Initiatives like the National Health Card have encouraged new technologies, competition between organizations, and globalization of activities, and have revealed the need ...

What the Bush financial team is doing is to place virtually all the load, present and immediate future on the American taxpayer. While the LIBOR rate is approaching 7% and interest rates in other places ranges from 4-6% (not counting Brazil etc.),the 2% Federal Funds rates makes life easier for banks and investment firms who have caused this problem, while penalizing those few off us who were savers. We have a negative interest rate with current inflation of at least 5.5% (if you believe the massaged numbers from the government). - Real inflation is likely higher, but the government can still borrow at negligible rates, encouraging further fiscal irresponsibility. - After the Congress just increased the debt limit very quietly by another $900 billion or so, just like the last time,money which we do not have is being spent wildly, and the war is continuing to be paid for off budget.. Now that the market has lost almost 20% of its peak value of last October, all the stockholders have felt the ...
Trump threatens to strip funds from UC Berkeley When President Donald Trump threatened to strip federal funds from UC Berkeley last week a
So, if one rejects any of these monetary measures as a reliable gauge of the Feds policy, how does one avoid the following meaningless circularity: "Why were interest rates so low? Because of Greenspans expansionary monetary policy. How do we know that Greenspans policy was expansionary? Because interest rates were so low." To anchor the claim that Fed policy caused undesirably low interest rates, one must turn to Taylors estimate that the equilibrium, real Federal funds rate of two percent remained constant throughout this period. Doing so arbitrarily excludes by assumption any alternative explanation for the periods low interest rates, including the one that both Ben Bernanke and Greenspan offered. Somewhat misleadingly referred to as the "global saving glut" thesis, it was supported by the fact that the net inflow of savings from abroad dwarfed the Feds increase of the monetary base. In 2006 alone, that annual inflow was about $800 billion, far exceeding the mere $200 billion increase ...
Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says he needs $6.9 billion in federal funds to keep the state afloat. Video courtesy of Fox News.
The old saying goes that cant have your cake and eat it too. However that is exactly what the Federal Reserve is apparently attempting to accomplish at the moment, as chairwoman Yellen continues to assure that a rate hike is just around the corner, and this time itll absolutely be for real. Of course invariable by that date absolute economic perfection has yet to be achieved which naturally is why any meaningful hike in the federal funds rate continues to be looming just around the corner, in perpetuity.. Until recently the strategy has been to simply postpone rate hikes for the next time or to the next quarter, with only one or two actively voting FOMC token members in opposition. However now it appears that an internal rift of sorts has developed in that one side is preaching caution in a low-inflation environment while another worries over the price of delaying. So if youre worried about the value of your Dollar savings and your purchasing power swirling down the toilet bowl then this news ...

Then it likely would be appropriate for the committee to increase the target range for the federal funds rate in June," accorThe suggestion that a rate increase in June is firmly on the table suggests the Fed is closer to tightening monetary policy again than Wall Street had expected.

Getting these people back to work will require something more than companies returning to their pre-recession profitability. It will require new companies, new industries, new areas to invest. Twelve months ago, I would have pointed to green technology, but without a carbon price to advantage wind, solar and other alternative energies, I dont know that green jobs will thrive merely on the back of government subsidies and weatherization tax credits. The White House expects that jobs will continue to come mostly from health care, education, and government. If we dont add another industry to that trinity, were looking at a long, long job slog. ...

This study has determined that Chinese government subsidies on healthcare have been equitably distributed in outpatient services but "not yet" to the inpatient services. All GHS KIs for inpatient services were positive in both urban and rural areas in 2007. This indicates that the government health subsidies were concentrated on the rich relative to their ATPs. On the other hand, GHS KIs for outpatient services were all negative in 2007, suggesting the GHS was pro-poor after adjusting for the ATP. Additionally, it has been demonstrated that the equity of GHS has improved from 2002 to 2007 in outpatient services in rural areas but not in outpatient services in urban areas nor all inpatient services in both rural and urban areas. Equity in GHS on inpatients services was not improved based on the increased KI values both in urban (KI increased by 0.4049 from 2002 to 2007) and rural areas (KI increased by 0.1292). However, in rural outpatient care, GHS was inequality-reducing as indicated by the ...

Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) are not new to the American cultural landscape. For over three decades, they have provided pregnancy options counseling from an antiabortion perspective. But CPCs are relatively new to the political scene. The last few years have seen a sudden groundswell in both federal and state legislation designed to support and promote them. To date, such efforts have largely focused on two goals: securing direct or indirect government subsidies for CPCs and raising their profile and stature in the public eye.

Both of these resolutions encouraged the restructuring of Georgias Medicaid program from its current federal-state partnership structure to a block grant program. SR 349 urged the U.S. Congress to block grant funding for Georgias Medicaid program and indigent care needs, while HR 182 provided legislative permission to the Governor and the Department of Community Health to seek per capita block grant funding for Medicaid. Shifting Medicaid to either a traditional or per capita block grant structure would result in cuts to services and beneficiaries, putting Georgias most vulnerable children, parents, elderly, and people with disabilities at risk. Check out GHFs block grant fact sheet for more information about the dangers of restructuring the Medicaid program. While resolutions are non-binding and do not impact state law, they are viewed as the official position of the General Assembly.. ...
The objective of the first Public Expenditure Tracking Survey (PETS) for Niger is to increase understanding of the link between public spending and service delivery at the facility level in order to contribute to improving the effectiveness and accountability in the use of public funds. Specifically, this PETS focuses on identifying the discrepancies, inefficiencies and delays in public spending execution for selected expenditures in the education and health sectors. The medium to long term goal of these PETS is to launch a process aimed at continuous improvements in public expenditure efficiency and equity by focusing on capacity building in this area in the ministries of education and health and in the Institute of National Statistics (INS). The main challenge faced by a tracking survey in a country like Niger is the availability and accuracy of records keeping. The Niger PETS highlights a general lack of systematic information recording. The quality of records in the education sector is low ...
In the United States, as of 2006[citation needed], the Federal Reserve sets an interest rate target for the federal funds (overnight bank reserves) market. When the actual federal funds rate is higher than the target, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will usually increase the money supply via a repurchase agreement (or repo), in which the Fed "lends" money to commercial banks. When the actual federal funds rate is less than the target, the Fed will usually decrease the money supply via a reverse repo, in which the banks purchase securities from the Fed. The Federal Reserve conducts open market operations with the objective of controlling short-term interest rates and the money supply. These operations fall into 2 categories: Dynamic open market operations are intended to change the level of reserves and the monetary base, and defensive open market operations are intended to offset movements in other factors that affect reserves and the monetary base, such as changes in Treasury deposits with ...

This week, both the Senate and the House of Representatives approved funding of the S.1793 Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS resources Emergency (CARE) Act through the year 2013. The legislation will provide improved healthcare for patients with HIV and AIDS.. "The Ryan White Program has been serving Americans living with HIV and AIDS for nearly 20 years," said Rep. Levin. "Strengthening this program will bring help to more people and maintain our commitment to HIV/AIDS patients while we continue to search for a cure.". The next step will be for President Obama to sign the act into law. There is not a specific date set for this to occur, but the Presidents Executive Office has released a Statement of Administration Policy in support of the act.. A 5% per year increase in funding was approved and will provide about $2.5 billion annually for primary medical care and support services to about 500,000 people each year, primarly those who are low-income, uninsured or under-insured..

Government subsidies and mandates on the agricultural sector for ethanol productions are harmful especially during a severe drought
Bundesverband Solarwirtschaft (BSW), the German solar industry association, announced Aug. 30 that 1,100 solar PV systems have received approval for the governments energy storage subsidy, and a further 4,800 applications are in the process of receiving approval.. According to the BSW, the energy storage subsidy, which has been available since May 1, provides a grant of up to EUR 600 to lower the cost of installing an energy storage component in a PV system up to 30 kW in size. The total annual budget available for the program in 2013 is reported as EUR 25 million, of which EUR 18.7 million has already been allocated.. The energy storage market in Germany will be dominated by the residential sector, with 30 MW of installations already supported by the subsidy in 2013, IHS says. Periodic decreases in FIT and continually increasing electricity prices, coupled with decreasing PV system prices, have now made it financially favorable for a homeowner to self-consume PV energy on-site rather than ...

New legislation to permit federal funds to be used for research on embryos, which would otherwise be destroyed following IVF, will be introduced to the US Congress.. Diana DeGette, Republican representative for Colorado, who has sponsored the bill, said: This legislation would place into statute a framework to ensure such critical research can be conducted unimpeded by political interference. If approved, the Stem Cell Research Advancement Act 2011 will seek to codify the US National Institutes of Healths (NIH) guidelines for human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research and will require the guidelines to be reviewed every three years. The Act will also prohibit the use of federal funds for human cloning techniques.. It is the third time such legislation has been considered by US politicians. Previous versions, which supporters say were similar to the current bill, were approved by Congress in 2006 and 2007 to be ultimately vetoed by former President George Bush. DeGette has called for broad ...

Starting with the Family Support Act of 1988, requirements for federal funding stipulate that child care subsidy rates be informed by market rates. In 1990 the federal government began a major investment in child care with the passage of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990. Support of parental choice was a key component of this new block grant program that sent new money to states to support child care. Parental choice and state control of policy remained central when the program was expanded in 1996 as a part of welfare reform legislation. At that time, child care funding became known as the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). States are required by the CCDF Final Rule to ensure that families receiving child care assistance have equal access to comparable care purchased by private-paying parents. A market rate survey (MRS) is a tool States use to achieve this program objective. Some States conduct surveys to collect the child care market rate and others use administrative ...

The Georgia Department of Transportation board allocated $128 million for the construction of the fifth and final phase of the Truman Parkway.. "This is a great Christmas present for everybody in Chatham County," said Pete Liakakis, Chatham County Commission chairman.. After the state did not grant any federal money for the project earlier this year, federal funds and state fuel-tax revenue now will be used to extend the parkway from Whitfield Avenue to Abercorn Street, just north of Holland Drive. Also approved was about $866,000 to widen an Interstate 95 exit ramp to Ga. 204.. The money originally was to fund multiple projects across the state, but those projects were not yet ready to build, said Tom Thomson, executive director of Chatham County-Savannah Metropolitan Planning Commission. Instead of waiting for those projects to be finalized, the federal government wanted to get the projects started in order to produce jobs as soon as possible, Thomson said.. "We are the beneficiaries of a ...

A key mandate of BioCanRx is to foster partnerships with potential users of research we fund. As a result, our research budget catalyzes, but does not fully fund, BioCanRx projects. BioCanRx requires Catalyst and Enabling Studies projects to find partners for at least 50% of the total budget at the outset, and to continue seeking additional third-party funding if the project is approved. Clinical Trial projects are expected to secure at least 60% of their trial budget from partners. Partner funding must be cash and/or in-kind contributions by "NCE eligible sources." NCE eligible sources include corporations, not-for profit organizations and government, but exclude the following federal funds: CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC, CFI, other NCEs and Genome Canada.. In addition, the quality of partner engagement is considered. Highly rated partners are those that are engaged in the technology development process with Network Investigators, and that both benefit from and add value to the BioCanRx research projects ...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (TSU News Service) - Tennessee State University agriculture officials say they hope President Trumps tariffs on Chinese goods is not long term. Last month, Trump announced that tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods would go up from 10 percent to 25 percent. The U.S. has also begun investigating whether $300 billion of other Chinese goods could be subject to tariffs.. And last week, the president announced a 5 percent tariff on all Mexican goods, starting June 10, if that country does not substantially halt illegal immigration across the border. Dr. Chandra Reddy, dean of TSUs College of Agriculture, said the tariffs are affecting producers, and that federal government subsidies may not be enough to help farmers who have to take out loans to make ends meet. Trump unveiled a $16 billion bailout last month for farmers hurt by the trade war. "Its very unfortunate that agriculture gets caught in this crossfire," Reddy said. "Its not good for us, not good for the rest of ...

To address Nelsons concerns over federal funds, Boxer and Murray agreed to a plan requiring insurers to collect separate payments from subscribers to cover abortions. Heres how the newly proposed segregation system would work: insurers that wanted to cover abortion would be required to collect two payments from every enrollee. One would go into a general fund, one would go into a fund that exclusively covers abortion. Every enrollee in a plan covering abortion-male or female, regardless of whether they wanted abortion coverage-would need to pay into both funds, the idea being the separate payment is not a rider but rather a standard part of the premium that must be paid separately. Insurers would be barred from advertising the breakdown of payments: in promotional materials, one would only see the lump sum premium payment advertised. Enrollees would learn of the breakdown after they signed up as part the summary of benefits ... at the time of enrollment, according to the amendment. ...
been affected?. By Richard Hill Adams. The Federal Reserve Bank Chairwoman Janet Yellen and the Federal Reserve Board increased the Federal Funds rate by a quarter of one percent; the sky did not fall and interest rates did not rocket to the moon. What you see when we look at the interest rates is that they are sliding downward from last December when the 10-year Treasury Bills were at 2.27 percent; today the 10-year Treasury is at 1.71 percent. Interest rates are incredibly important in the housing industry; the construction loans typically float over The WSJ Prime Rate, which at its zenith was 21.5 percent in December 1980, and decreased to 3.5% today. The last time our economy saw the Prime Interest Rate at 3.5 percent was in April 1958 when Eisenhower was President of the United States. The economy around the world is soft and that will help hold interest rates in the lower ranges for some time to come. The housing market, which is so dependent upon interest rates, has been blessed with the ...
holding answer 18 July 2001]: The analysis of public expenditure by region published in Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses (Cm 5110) attempts to allocate spending over regions to reflect the relative benefits incurred by the respective populations. The commentary in that document (paragraph 8.2) notes the limitations of this approach, in particular the definitional problems associated with allocating spending on the basis of who benefits. Where there is no clear basis for deciding which region benefits from a particular spending programme, or where accounting information for allocating spending by region is not available, allocation is based on other available indicators. Spending on agriculture has therefore been allocated over regions on a per capita basis. ...

Ive got news to report regarding our efforts to stop researchers from acquiring dogs and cats from shelters. We have learned that soon, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will no longer allow researchers who receive federal funds to purchase cats or dogs from class B "random source" dealers. These class B dealers sell animals who are bought from shelters or adopted from "Free to a Good Home" scenarios. They have even been known to steal animals from private backyards ...
Billions of dollars in federal funds are up for grabs as companies rush to capitalize on the 2001 law by telling struggling schools across the country they can comply with its tough standards by buying the companies products. In pitches often sweetened with dinner cruises and other perks, software vendors make sweeping claims for computer programs and on-line networks that promise to assess students weaknesses, raise test scores, and organize the data required by the law. "Were filling the needs of schools to help them 24-7, to supply what students need," Lamerson told school officials gathered at an alternative vocationalhigh school tucked between fog-draped hills along Logans Guyandotte River. However, software claims of success tend to be based on dubious studies, often performed or paid for by the companies themselves -- a problem that is acknowledged even by the Bush administration. While encouraging schools to use education technology to comply with No Child Left Behind, the ...

The presidency of Donald Trump, a/k/a Der Fuhrer, is terrorizing many across the globe but perhaps nowhere more than Germany which knows from history the dangers of people like Trump and the price of that complacency and failure to act early to prevent the advance of evil. Donald Trump has been in office a mere 14 days yet it already seems like an eternity in some ways. With each day we have seen more autocratic and bizarre behavior coming from the current occupant of the White House. First the Muslim ban - which excludes, of course Muslim nations where Trump has investments - and now a likely license to discriminate law that will give special rights and preferences to Christian extremists. Then there is the threat to send American troops into Mexico, the threat to take military action against Iran, the threatening and rude telephone conversation with the Prime Minister of Australia, a steadfast American ally for over 100 years. Oh, and lets not forget the threat to take away federal funds from ...
A commentary on the workings of the January 1839 congressional probe of the Treasury Department in the wake of the Swartwout embezzlement. (See "Price Current" and "Sub Treasurers Meeting in England," nos. 1838-21 and -20.) Led by administration opponent Henry A. Wise and chaired by James Harlan, the committee scrutinized procedures and irregularities in the reporting and handling of federal funds by Treasury Department officials. Here the artist seems unusually sympathetic to Treasury Secretary Levi Woodbury.. The secretary sits strapped into a "Scrutiny chair" with its seat of nails, probed and drilled by various committee members including Wise, who bores into his skull at upper right, and Harlan, who sniffs Woodburys palm saying, "I must say there is no smell of gold on the palm. Tho he did let others steal I dont think he shared in the booty!" The secretarys left foot is caught in an animal trap. His right leg is stretched to the left by a winch whose base is labeled "Power to employ a ...

Humans have spent the vast portion of their time on earth as hunter-gatherers, not as farmers and especially not as industrialists. Thats why it is important to learn about our food legacy of hunting and gathering prior to the complete transformation our food supply over the last 100 years. We may have overrun our natural evolutionary speed of adaptation to food.. We now base our agrarian and industrial food strategy on corn, wheat and soybeans. These are the capital intensive crops that power lower food costs for us, and attract massive government subsidies each year. We feed these subsidized cheap crops to ourselves, our pets, our food animals, and are now seeking ways to fuel our cars with them. Capital intensive crops benefit greatly from money and economy of scale; costs go down. This strategy, however, has been accompanied by dramatic increase in chronic diseases like heart disease, vascular disease, cancer and diabetes. We can either wait for more study of this, or to evolve over time ...
