In October 2008, the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 established the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) to enable the Department of the Treasury to purchase or insure troubled assets as a way to promote stability in financial markets. Section 202 of that legislation requires the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to prepare a report on those transactions within 45 days of a report issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on the TARPżs activities.

When the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) was created, it was granted żother transactionż authority -- a special authority used to meet mission needs. While the authority provides greater flexibility to attract and work with nontraditional contractors to research, develop, and test innovative technologies, other transactions carry the risk of reduced accountability and transparency -- in part because they are exempt from certain fed. acquisition regulations and cost accounting standards. This report determines the extent to which nontraditional contractors have been involved in DHSżs other

The 2011 co-called e-commerce volume at approx. $3.5 trillion. The volume of e-commerce is expected to increase and state and local governments are concerned because collection of sales tax on these transactions is difficut to enforce. Under current law, states cannot reach beyond their borders and compel out-of-state Internet vendors (those without nexus in the buyerżs state) to collect the use tax owed by state residents and businesses. The Supreme Court ruled that requiring remote vendors to collect the use tax would pose an undue burden on interstate commerce. Estimates put this lost tax

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. In the period prior to the financial crisis, leverage in the financial system increased substantially. This buildup was likely facilitated by, among other factors, a loosening of credit terms related to OTC derivatives and securities financing transactions. However, little or no systematic data on these trends were available at the time. The new Senior Credit Officer Opinion Survey on Dealer Financing Terms, which was conducted for the first time in June 2010, partially fills this gap. The new survey provides qualitative informat
