An Overview Of The Proposed Dickey-Lincoln School Lakes Hydro-Electric Project : Aroostook County, Maine, New England Division, Department Of The Army, Corps. Of Engineers, Department Of Energy

Dickey-Lincoln School Lakes Project

An overview of The Dickey-Lincoln Project in northern Aroostook County, Maine is a proposed Federally financed hydro-electric power generating facility. Electric energy generated by the facility would be introduced into the New England Power Pool system through construction of new transmission lines across northern Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.

Responsibility for investigation and construction rests in the two Federal agencies, i.e. dams and reservoirs in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and transmission lines in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The two actions are part of the same proposal, although they are in essence separate and ...

The Webb-Pomerene Act At Home And Abroad, Richard A. Sloan Apr 1977

The Webb-Pomerene Act At Home And Abroad, Richard A. Sloan

IUSTITIA

For the most prolonged period of time in recent history, American corporations have been experiencing difficulties in dealing with foreign economic competition. Consequently, there has been a growing interest in finding ways to enhance the marketing strength of American firms competing with foreign firms in foreign markets. This is not the first time concern with American firms' competitive strength has been articulated; the Webb- Pomerene Act of 1918 was an attempt by Congress to vitalize American exporting firms. Since 1918, the Webb-Pomerene Act has been the subject of disagreement as to its usefulness and effectiveness in achieving its stated goal ...

The Borda Game, Roy Gardner Jul 1976

The Borda Game, Roy Gardner

Economic Staff Paper Series

Recently, a number of authors have constructed axiomatic defences of Borda's rule [2, 4, 8], In every case, it Is assumed that voters mark their ballots honestly, in accordance with their preferences. That this assumption may be unrealistic was known to Borda himself [ij. Elsewhere • [3, 5], it has been shpwn how Borda's rule can reward misrepresented pref erences on the part of individual voters. This result is in the same spirit as, but not a consequence of, the Gibbard-Satterthwaite theorem [6, 7], since Borda's rule allows ties. This is in marked contrast to Condorcet's rule ...

A Note On Lags And The Assignment Problem, Harvey Lapan, Walter Enders Aug 1975

A Note On Lags And The Assignment Problem, Harvey Lapan, Walter Enders

Economic Staff Paper Series

Mundell (1962) demonstrated that monetary policy should be paired with external balance and fiscal policy with internal balance. This seminal article led to a voluminous literature^ which attempted to rectify many of the problems inherent in Mundell's flow equilibrium model. Harry Johnson (1972) has characterized this extension of Mundell's work as having lent itself to almost Infinite mathematical product differentiation, with little significant improvement in quality of economic product..." Although we do not fully agree with Harry Johnson--for there are many deficiencies in Mundell'a model-- we do believe that more can be said concerning the "Assignment Problem ...

Evaluation Research And Evaluation: Scientific Social Reform Movement And Ideology, Michael Baizerman Dec 1974

Evaluation Research And Evaluation: Scientific Social Reform Movement And Ideology, Michael Baizerman

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

The idea that human services programs should be evaluated is accepted by most practitioners and researchers. Discussion is about the technical aspects of this research and about how practitioners can be encouraged to utilize evaluative findings in their everyday practice. Emphasis is placed also on the organizational barriers to this utilization. These ideas and issues are found in a growing literature in the social sciences and, increasingly, in the even faster growing literatures in the professions and in the human services, including the social services, medical and health services, criminal justice and the like.

Here, evaluation research is discussed from ...


Conflict And Compromise In Evaluation Research: A Case Study, Joe Hudson, Peter Chommie Dec 1974

Conflict And Compromise In Evaluation Research: A Case Study, Joe Hudson, Peter Chommie

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

As has been pointed out by a host of writers, a crucial issue in conducting evaluative or action type research is the problem of gearing an appropriate research design into the cogs of organizations, ensuring that once initiated the evaluation is in fact conducted according to the original design, and that the results of the study are utilized in policy formulations and ultimately in program development. The focus of this case study is on the major political and administrative problems and processes involved in planning, conducting, and utilizing the findings from a field experiment dealing with the relative effects of ...

Exploitation Of Migrants By Crew Leaders: A Proposal For Change, Roberta Getman Oct 1973

Exploitation Of Migrants By Crew Leaders: A Proposal For Change, Roberta Getman

IUSTITIA

The agricultural industry, because of seasonal nature of crops, is unique in its use of labor. The required labor force fluctuates not only from year to year but from week to week, and day to day. Not as many laborers are required to weed and cultivate as are needed to plant and harvest. Inclement weather reduces the need for workers. The grower in Indiana needs an efficient means for ensuring a supply of labor for each season. Each spring between fifteen and twenty thousand Mexican- Americans come to Indiana to plant, cultivate, and harvest its crops. Traditionally, the work force ...

The Utilization Of Aides In Public Welfare; Analysis, Evaluation, And Proposal, Leonard Mark Robinson, Shirley Ann Youngstrom

Dissertations and Theses

The purpose of this project was to trace the developments which led to the utilization of para-profess iona1 persons as service aides in public welfare departments and to examine, in particular, the developments in Oregon at the state and county levels. The establishment of such programs was mandated in the Social Security Amendments of 1967. A review of the 1967 legislation showed the legislative intent to be inconsistent with the stated purposes of the program. This inconsistency, it was found, has been reflected in Oregon’s aide program. The theoretical origins underlying the aide concept were also examined in order ...
