Another example would be the reputation of the manager: Has he got a bad reputation, than his salary would be lower than usual. Agents try to reduce monitoring costs by installing mechanisms to guarantee that they will behave in the interest of the principal or by proposing to compensate principals for their losses.

... the Supreme Court will review the Brady Bill Case. The issue of gun control is heating up... soon it will be up to the Supreme Court to decide on the Constitutionality of gun control. Special interest groups have been part of the American political process since its beginning and have been viewed ambivalently for more than 200 years. As early as 1787, James Madison warned about the "mischiefs of `factions.'" Beginning in the late 1970s, pressure groups took on new importance in U.S. politics. In the area of gun-control, political special interest groups are polarized. There is no middle of the road groups, they are either devoutly for or against gun control.

Since 1991, Hawaii's economy has suffered from rising rates of unemployment. This stands in marked contrast to the period 1980 to 1993, when the state enjoyed very low unemployment rates relative to the nation as a whole. But by 1994 the recession had raised Hawaii's unemployment rate to the national average (6.1%) for the first time in 15 years. In 1995, the state ... visitor spending since 1994.

... needs to be found. The issue of climate change holds one important key to this balance. Man and the Environment Thomas Malthus is well remembered for his position as a doomsayer.

He blamed this decline on three main factors: the overproduction of offspring; the ... in the developed world, this means increased prosperity and enhanced standards of living.

Many scholars believe that continuing on this ... the environment is an immediate problem. Though environmental concerns are widespread and many, perhaps the most challenging is the significant (30%) increase in greenhouse gasses accumulated in the atmosphere since the industrial revolution.

Second, Germany could have accepted a temporary acceleration of inflation associated ...
