17.910 Reading Seminar in Social Science: International Political Economy (MIT)
This course examines the politics of international economic relations. We begin with a discussion of the analytical "lenses" through which we can view the global economy. We then examine the politics of trade policy, multinational corporations, and international monetary and financial relations. We will also examine third-world development, communist transition, and the debate over "globalization." Finally we will explore the fight against terrorist financing and money laundering, the proper rol

Emerging Markets in a Nutshell
Three leading academics discuss emerging markets and explore both the issues faced by the economies in China and Latin America and the challenges faced by companies looking to invest in or do business with them. Emerging markets are fast growing economies in a transitional stage between developing and developed. They offer a wealth of opportunities in trade, technology transfer and foreign direct investment, but there are also risks involved. Three leading academics discuss emerging markets and

TALAT Lecture 2401: Fatigue Behaviour and Analysis
This lecture explains why, when and where fatigue problems may arise and the special significance to aluminium as structural material; it helps to understand the effects of material and loading parameters on fatigue; to appreciate the statistical nature of fatigue and its importance in data analysis, evaluation and use; it shows how to estimate fatigue life under service conditions of time-dependent, variable amplitude loading; how to estimate stresses acting in notches and welds with conceptual
A Web-Based Virtual Reality Model for Preliminary Estimates of Hi-Rise Building Projects
Cost estimating of a construction project at its early stage is considered to be very important task since it will be used as a base to commit or otherwise not to commit funds to that project. Preparation of a reliableand realistic preliminary estimate to aid the decision makers to commit funds for a specific project is a complicated assignment. Traditional methods and operations produced unsatisfactory aid due to lack ofaccuracy especially in the pre-design stage of a project. This participates
