From the BookCloud computing has quickly become a buzzword in the information and communications technology (ICT) world. It refers to themyriad of information and communications activities that are increasingly taking place in the network, broadly defined. Like the migration of electricity in the early 1900s from local generation to an electrical grid with metered service, the cloud signals the movement of hard and soft functions such as storage, software applications and services to an off premises service industry.

Foreword Will Marshall and Mark Ribbing Mr. President, your election was a testament to our country’s amazing capacities for self-correction and reinvention.

With our country mired in war and a worsening economic crisis, Americans across the political spectrum sense that hyperpartisan grandstanding is a luxury they can no longer afford. They seek a new era of competence and comity, in which our people reach across old divides to find new solutions to the urgent challenges of our time. The purpose of this boo

MEDIA OWNERSHIP AND DEMOCRACY IN THE DIGITAL INFORMATION AGE combines a detailed review of First Amendment jurisprudence with rigorous economic analysis to demonstrate the continuing need for structural limits on media ownership to promote democratic discourse. Among the key findings: · Economic forces in mass media markets result in the undersupply of diverse sources of information, inadequate production of investigative "watch dog" news and the exercise of market power by media owners. · Increasing commercialism, concentration, consolidation and conglomeration undermine the ab

This 2010 edition of OECD’s periodic review of China’s economy finds that China’s spectacular expansion has continued in recent years, making for impressive improvements in living standards. The slowdown associated with the global financial and economic crisis was contained by massive fiscal and monetary policy stimulus, which has boosted domestic demand. This survey includes chapters on recent achievements and prospects, monetary policy, financial reforms, product market regulation and competition, inequality, the labour market, old-age security and the health care system.
