Quandl - Find, Use and Share Numerical Data - 52 views

  •  
    Hi Professor Neustadtl, I have developed a repository for sociology data tailored for researchers, and especially students.  The site is open and free, and has over 3 million social, financial, and economic time series datasets available for downloading.  Importantly, the ease by which a user can find, trim, transform, merge, and download time series data from www.quandl.com is in my opinion, unmatched elsewhere. My hope is that you will visit the site briefly, and perhaps offer me some feedback.  More information about the service is below. I've also included my LinkedIN profile should you be weary of my intentions with this email. www.quandl.com/academics with thanks, Tammer -- Tammer Kamel tammerk@quandl.com http://www.quandl.com http://www.linkedin.com/in/tammerkamel/

Bank of Canada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  • Bank of Canada
  • The bank began operations on March 11, 1935, after the passage of the Bank of Canada Act. Initially the bank was founded as a privately owned corporation in order to ensure it was free from political influence. In 1938, under Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, it became " a special type of " Crown corporation, fully owned by the government; thus, in effect, by the Canadian taxpayers; with the governor appointed by Cabinet. The responsibility for creating small bills was transferred from the finance department and the private banks were ordered to remove their currency from circulation by 1949.[

Fractional-reserve banking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 1 views

  • Fractional-reserve banking
  • Fractional-reserve banking is a type of banking whereby the bank does not retain all of a customer’s deposits within the bank. Funds received by the bank are generally lent to other customers. This means that available funds (called bank reserves) are only a fraction (called the reserve ratio) of the quantity of deposits at the bank. As most bank deposits are treated as money in their own right, fractional reserve banking increases the money supply, and banks are said to create money.

2010 October - feature: do schools need ICT? - 26 views

  •  
    Ian Yorston explains why investment in ICT doesn't necessarily pay "If you had to spend a million pounds, you'd really hope to have something to show for it. Yet most schools have spent at least that on ICT and get nothing obvious in return - aside from a few hundred PCs running Windows XP and a handful of smart gadgets."
