Ever imagined having to deliver a baby by yourself? Could you do it? When Jennifer Slater unexpectedly had to deliver her own baby in the back of a jeep as her husband raced toward the hospital, the mistakes she made that morning could have cost her son his life. Jennifer realized how little we're taught about the few crucial steps that need to be taken if ever surprised by an extremely fast labor-it happens more often than you might think-so she compiled this small, but powerful book from experience, research, and interviews with others who delivered "en route." In this book readers will learn: what to expect if contractions suddenly race from 5 minutes apart to mere seconds what to do every step of the way until reaching the hospital the best position a mother should get into if she starts delivering the baby in the car what to do if the baby doesn't start crying new information about cutting the umbilical cord from the first contraction to their arrival at the hospital with a 5-minute old baby surprising similarities other parents experienced during their last trimester that resulted in unusually short (one hour or less) labors"
This study examines five decades of Italian economists who studied or researched at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge between the years 1950 and 2000. Providing a detailed list of Italian economists associated with Hicks, Harrod, Bacharach, Flemming, Mirrlees, Sen and other distinguished dons, the authors examine eleven research lines, including the Sraffa and the neo-Ricardian school, the post-Keynesian school and the Stone's and Goodwin's schools. Baranzini and Mirante trace the influence of the schools in terms of 1) their fundamental role in the evolution of economic thought; 2) their promotion of four key controversies (on the measurement of technical progress, on capital theory, on income distribution and on the inter-generational transmission of wealth); 3) the counter-flow of Oxbridge scholars to academia in Italy, and 4) the invigoration of a third generation of Italian economists researching or teaching at Oxbridge today.
A must-read for all those interested in the way Italian and British research has shaped the study and teaching of economics.
