4、Capping retired pay for senior field grade officers : force management, retention, and cost effect 2018

摘要:從書:Research report (Rand Corporation), RR-2251-OSD. xvii, 76 pages : color illustrations ; 28 cm The 2007 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) made several compensation changes to increase the incentives for the most senior personnel to stay in service longer. However, the number of field grade and noncommissioned officers with more than 30 years of service has increased significantly since 2007--something that was not a target of the 2007 NDAA. In response to this finding, the Senate Armed Services Committee directed the Secretary of Defense to review the advisability and feasibility of capping mid-grade retired pay so that only members of the highest grades and with the most years of service would earn the highest retired pay. This report provides analysis to support the Secretary of Defense review. The RAND team took a multi-method approach focused on active duty personnel and drew on expert knowledge, administrative data, and advanced econometric methods for estimating retention behavior and for simulating policy responses. The researchers found that the increase in senior field grade officers was driven by an increase in officers with prior enlisted service. Experts provided several possible explanations and cautioned that capping retired pay for these officers would hurt retention, morale, and, possibly, the accession of officers who come up from the enlisted ranks. The researchers used RAND's Dynamic Retention Model to estimate the effects of using special and incentive pays to offset losses in retention but found that doing so would result in a net cost increase. The authors conclude that capping retired pay for senior field grade officers would have no positive benefits and could result in harmful outcomes with respect to force management and cost.

5、An assessment of the military survivor benefit plan 2018

摘要:1 online resource (xxii, 152 pages) : illustration The Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) provides income security for the survivors of U.S. service members who perform in an authorized-duty status--whether active or inactive--and die in the line of duty, as well as for the survivors of retired members enrolled in SBP. This report responds to Congress's request for an assessment of SBP. The assessment includes information about SBP participation and available benefits, how SBP compares with similar plans in public organizations and private companies, and how large a contribution SBP makes to survivors' incomes. Congress also requested that the assessment consider the feasibility and advisability of having SBP provided by commercial sources. Overall, the authors find that SBP is well structured to serve the role of providing survivor benefits to service members and military retirees, and SBP benefits generally compare well to those of public and private plans. Using commercial sources to provide survivor benefits appears feasible; however, the advisability of shifting to commercial sources requires information not currently available about internal and external cost and quality of service under different approaches to outsourcing.

12、Welcome to Venice : RXCX : when I have fun they call 911 2018

摘要:1 volume (unpaged) : chiefly illustrations (some color) ; 29 cm Artist and musician Ric Clayton has been at the flashpoint of several cultural movements originating in Venice, California. His illustrations for thrash punk band Suicidal Tendencies are instantly recognisable around the world. Clayton was in the mix just as punk and metal cross-pollinated in the early 80s, but he also stood at the crossroads of the Dogtown skating scene and cholo culture in Los Angeles. Impossibly, Clayton embodied and portrayed all of these movements simultaneously in his artwork. In 'Welcome to Venice' you'll enjoy a generous serving of this riveting artist's output.

14、The effects of conventional and unconventional monetary policy on exchange rate 2018

摘要:從書:Working paper series (National Bureau of Economic Research), no. 25021. 1 online resource (64 pages) : illustrations. What are the effects of monetary policy on exchange rates? And have unconventional monetary policies changed the way monetary policy is transmitted to international financial markets? According to conventional wisdom, expansionary monetary policy shocks in a country lead to that country's currency depreciation. We revisit the conventional wisdom during both conventional and unconventional monetary policy periods in the US by using a novel identification procedure that defines monetary policy shocks as changes in the whole yield curve due to unanticipated monetary policy moves and allows monetary policy shocks to differ depending on how they affect agents' expectations about the future path of interest rates as well as their perceived effects on the riskiness/uncertainty in the economy. Our empirical results show that: (i) a monetary policy easing leads to a depreciation of the country's spot nominal exchange rate in both conventional and unconventional periods; (ii) however, there is substantial heterogeneity in monetary policy shocks over time and their effects depend on the way they affect agents' expectations; (iii) we find favorable evidence to Dornbusch's (1976) overshooting hypothesis.

Counting the mounting chorus of anti-immigrant voices, "No one is illegal" debunks the leading ideas behind the often violent right-wing backlash against immigrants, revealing their deep roots in U.S. history, and documents the new civil rights movement that has mounted protests around the country to demand justice and dignity for immigrants.
