The Impacts of Sino-US Trade on China’s Economic Growth  [PDF]
Hao Xie
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2014.46037

China has witnessed many exciting changes after the Chinese government adopted reform and opening-up policy in 1978. In this process, the United States has a positive influence on China’s economic growth. Traditional view thinks that the influence of exports on China's GDP growth is greater than imports, but the result of regression analysis shows that imports have a greater impact on China’s GDP growth rather than the exports. Based on the statistics from 1998-2007, China’s GDP will increase by 0.455% if the volume of China’s exports to US increases by 1% while China’s GDP will increase by 0.825% if the volume of China’s imports from US increases by 1%.

The paper presents pertinent data illustrating that a large gap exists in wealth accumulation between Black and Whites in the United States. The paper presents a number of implications for the Black American population as a result of this large wealth gap.

Is Consumption in the United States and Japan Too Much or Too Little?  [PDF]
Yutaka Kurihara, Kei Tomimura
iBusiness (IB) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2012.43029
Abstract: This article reports on the results of an empirical examination of whether consumption in the United States and Japan is too much or too little relative to productivity in these countries (1993-2011). Findings reveal some clear and common characteristics of both countries for the sample period. The most typical one occurred during financial crises around 2008, which is often called the Lehman shock. In both countries, consumers had considerably reduced consumption around that period. The IT boom collapse at the beginning of the 2000s also diminished consumption in the United States. This paper examines impulse responses to trace the effect of a productivity shock to one of the innovations on the current and future value of consumption. Findings indicate that the effect of the shock of productivity on consumption is long both countries
Drought and Associated Impacts in the Great Plains of the United States—A Review  [PDF]

The Great Plains region of the United States is susceptible to drought of all kinds including meteorological/climatological, agricultural, hydrological, and socioeconomic. Drought conditions in the region span varying spatial and temporal scales and the causes include: 1) certain synoptic conditions that favor drought such as mid-tropospheric ridging over the drought-affected area and a weak low-level jet; 2) sea surface temperature anomalies and associated teleconnections; 3) land-atmosphere coupling; and 4) anthropogenic effects. While drought can span as few as a couple of months, the most severe droughts can occur at the decadal scale such as the 1930s Dust Bowl, the worst drought in recent history from a societal standpoint. Such droughts in the Great Plains have widespread impacts on agriculture, water resources, human health, and the economy.

Guerra y Política Mundial. Dimensiones De La Hegemonía De Los Estados Unidos
Análisis Político , 2007,
Abstract: analysts should avoid the retrospective illusion of believing that the us hegemony, as a trend and a firmly entrenched practice occurred during the independence or a little later (with the monroe doctrine). in fact, the onset of hegemony took place during the last decades of the xixth century and strengthened during the following century, particularly because of the european decline. moreover, the period following 09/11 has been a very crucial one, with the emergence of a new foreign policy that combines a large element of the doctrine of intervention, with the ancient just-war doctrine, a difficulty to take into account the change in the art of war, and the forgetfulness of the classical terms of the diplomatic and strategic behavior. the successive years will reveal if the eruption of condoleeza rice's "transformational diplomacy" represents a real epoch-making turning point.

The Relations between the United States and Russia
Manuel de la Cámara
UNISCI Discussion Papers , 2007,
Abstract: Although it is evident that neither in Washington nor in Moscow it is wished to recreate the Cold War, and there is no ideological confrontation like before, many regret the use of a Cold War rhetoric or, at least, the "cold peace" that the former two superpowers have entered. Russia's image in the West has greatly deteriorated in the West during the past few months. But the reality is that Russia is there, and it still is a fundamental actor in the European and international context. The West must identify the failures and abuses and denounce them, but over all it must try to gradually extend to Russia the rules and institutions that fully guarantee prosperity and existing liberties in our countries.

Abstract: Throughout the 1990’s Poland pursued a security policy steered by Atlanticism and a close bond with the United States. Atlanticism shaped Warsaw’s choices on all key security issues during the past decade, but became particularly apparent after 9/11 when Poland lent its full support to the US-led war on terror. Whilst membership in the EU will affect the priorities and conduct of Polish security policy, it is argued here that the deep-seated nature of Atlanticism in Polish strategic culture , together with the broader implications of enlargement upon the EU’s foreign policy ambitions will ensure that Poland will remain a keen Atlanticist in the New Europe.
