Summary The risk assessment approach described in this monograph applies only to essential trace elements (ETEs) involved in human health and not to non-essential elements. The purpose of this monograph is to provide the scientific principles that support the concept of an "acceptable range of oral intake" (AROI), which uses a "homeostatic model" for determining the range of dietary intakes for essential trace elements (ETEs) that meet the nutritional requirements of a healthy population and avoid excess intakes. To facilitate comparisons, AROIs are discussed in relation to other risk assessme

He maps out a plan to bring about a dollar that is as good as gold, one that would be protected against manipulation by government and central bankers. Part of that strategy is the minting of a new gold one but the more far-reaching plan involves a redefinition of the dollar and complete

For decades, governments and donors have attempted to improve social welfare through public support for development finance institutions (DFIs). This monograph presents two measures of social cost. The first measure is the Subsidiary Dependence Index (SDI) and the second is the Net Present Cost to Society (NPCs). These measures help to establish benchmarks and to chart trends. They help to measure the social cost of development finance institutions (DFIs) that receive public funds. This is significant since funds earmarked for development are scarce. The measurement of social cost in this mono
