While the high cost of education draws headlines, the cost of not educating America's children goes largely ignored. The Price We Pay remedies this oversight by highlighting the private and public costs of inadequate education. In this volume, leading scholars from a broad range of fields—including economics, education, demography, and public health—attach hard numbers to the relationship between educational attainment and such critical indicators as income, health, crime, dependence on public assistance, and political participation. They explore policy interventions that could boost the education system's performance and explain why demographic trends make the challenge of educating our youth so urgent today. Improving educational outcomes for at-risk youth is more than a noble goal. It is an investment with the potential to yield benefits that far outstrip its costs. The Price We Pay provides the tools readers need to analyze both sides of the balance sheet and make informed decisions about which policies will pay off. Contributors include Thomas Bailey (Teachers College, Columbia University), Ronald F. Ferguson (Harvard University), Irwin Garfinkel (Columbia University), Jane Junn (Rutgers University), Brendan Kelly (Columbia University), Enrico Moretti (UCLA), Peter Muennig (Columbia University), Michael Rebell (Teachers College, Columbia University), Richard Rothstein (Teachers College, Columbia University), Cecilia E. Rouse (Princeton University), Marta Tienda (Princeton University), Jane Waldfogel (Columbia University), and Tamara Wilder (Teachers College, Columbia University).

The growth of Google as a gate to information and entertainment is as dizzying as it is fascinating. 'I can't imagine a life without Google', is an often heard saying. There is a blind trust at its ground, but are we aware of Google's selection processes and what it does with the information on our behavior on the internet? The search results are getting more and more personal and the so-called 'free' services are paid for by the information on our surf behavior. We have become both the producer of and a product to Google. It even intends to become our personal advisor. Where will this lead us? This book will analyze the advantages and risks of the growing power of this corporation. It is not an accusation, but a critical analysis on basis of facts. Peter Olsthoorn (1960) studied history before he became a successful journalist at various newspapers and magazines in the Netherlands, Germany and the US. He has been one of the first European journalists publishing daily online articles since '95. Moreover, Olsthoorn is currently the Chairman of the Internet Section at the Dutch Association for Journalists, and a member of the Netherlands Press Council. This ebook contains exclusive interviews with Google Privacy Director Alma Whitten and Danny Sullivan, founder of Search Engine Land. It also contains practical instructions on how to combat data collection about your personal life.

The author criticises the post war obsession with economic growth, which he regards as neither desirable in itself or necessary as a means of increasing exports. He draws attention to the disparities between social and commercial costs, and severs the conventional link between rising economic opportunity and social welfare.

Will Controlled Chaos Be Enough To Free Them? Angela has moved Safe Haven to the Mountains of Georgia to make their stand. She has put a plan in motion that will free them all or get them all killed. For her, everything since the apocalypse has come down to this moment. It's what she's been training for, what her men have tried to prepare her for, but only fate knows if it will be enough. Marc assumes he will be Safe Haven's leader soon. He is sure Angela won't risk their child by continuing to endanger herself, so he's waiting, working, and following orders. What will happen when he finds out Angela doesn't intend to ever give up leadership? Will he try to take it from her to protect their baby? Adrian hopes he can twist the couple apart by using Kendle. If he can't succeed that way, Adrian will turn himself into the bunker. Under no circumstances can he see himself living in camp while watching Angela and Marc raise the family that he now longs for with her. He'd rather die trying to take down the enemy from the inside. Kendle is having a hard time adjusting to being back with her own kind. She doesn't like any of them. They're not serious enough in her opinion, not hard enough to deserve a leader like Marc, who she is drawn to against her will. She wants to fight, to spill blood, but as far as Safe Haven is concerned, she couldn't care less if they all live or die. Their fight isn't hers. Samantha has a vital mission and neither of her men knows about it. Her role is one that Neil and Jeremy would never have allowed, had they been told. Samantha's time to prove herself has come and she'll need all of her strength, her concentration, to accomplish it. She has a hard job in Angela's plan and if she fails, she will die. Sam wouldn't have that any other way. The Eagles are tired of the drama. They want things back the way they were and after this battle, if they survive, they plan to make sure it happens. Angela is who they will support if she saves them all, even against Marc. The camp members feel the same. They will follow whoever gives them freedom. The government is counting on the chaos. News of it has reached the bunker and those in charge are confident that they can sweep in and grab the important people while everyone is distracted. They plan to kill the rest of Safe Haven. There are too many descendants in that camp, too many future dangers. If they don't take them out now, the government knows they aren't likely to get such a good chance again. Having all those powerful people in one place is a huge mistake that the government plans to take advantage of. They've sent Major John Donner to handle the situation. Major Donner has studied the descendants for his entire military career. He spends months at a time underground with them in the labs. He knows them better than anyone on the government's payroll does. He's the guy they call to recapture their escapees or to hunt down new specimens. His family has served in this manner for a century. His name is whispered with loathing among descendants and soldiers alike. He is brilliant, he is ruthless, and the government has turned him loose on Safe Haven. Nature is growing tired. It is almost time for her to sleep, to give life a pass in all its form, but before she does, she will deliver one final blow meant to wipe out mankind in brutal numbers. Will this be the final straw to send Safe Haven over the edge of no return? Get your copy today!
