This book discusses the role played by the exchange rate in the economy and the pros and cons of fixed and flexible rates are discussed. The classification of exchange rate regimes is examined from theoretical, practical and historical perspectives. Macroeconomic performance under various exchange rate regimes is assessed, followed by a survey of models of exchange rate regime choice. Some factual case studies are presented and related to the theoretical foundations, including the choice of exchange rate regime in the post-conflict case of Iraq.
The contributions are concerned with the theoretical and empirical analyses of fixed and flexible exchange rate systems, the role of central bank and other government policies in such systems, the prospects, workings and effects of a European Monetary System, and capital mobility and economic integration.
This much-anticipated book presents the procedural phases required to achieve optimal results in the esthetic rehabilitation of patients in need of fixed prostheses. Communication between the clinician and the technician, which is essential to the esthetic, biologic, and functional integration of the prosthetic rehabilitation, is highlighted through a step-by-step presentation of all clinical and laboratory procedures. Chapters demonstrate methods to obtain accurate facebow recordings, impression materials and techniques, fabrication of provisional restorations, and incorporation of interdisciplinary therapies for ideal comfort and esthetics. All of this information is transferred to the final restorations, which should provide patients with long-term prosthetic solutions exhibiting appropriate fit, form, and function. Hundreds of full-color clinical photographs and detailed illustrations accompany each treatment phase and situation described. This beautiful book picks up where Volume 1 ended and delivers its message with equal clarity and precision.
This book makes basic pricing concepts more accessible to business students through a simple unified system for the setting and management of prices. Robert M. Schindler demystifies the formulas used in pricing and shows students how they can do the math necessary for making effective price-related decisions. He demonstrates how pricing should be guided by the marketing concept, focusing on the needs and sensitivities of the customer, showing that an understanding of consumer behavior is central to core pricing questions. Chapters end with discussion questions and exercises to help reinforce what students have learned.
