"This book takes a unique approach of utilizing computer simulation methods to introduce students to the key ideas of statistical inference.Methods such as bootstrap intervals and randomization tests are very intuitive to novice students and capitalize on visual learning skills students bring to the classroom. With proper use of computer support, they are accessible at very early stages of a course with little formal background. Our text introduces statistical inference through these resampling and randomization methods, not only because these methods are becoming increasingly important for statisticians in their own right but also because they are outstanding in building students' conceptual understanding of the key ideas"--

“Worth a read for anyone who cares about making change happen.”—Barack Obama A powerful new blueprint for how governments and nonprofits can harness the power of digital technology to help solve the most serious problems of the twenty-first century As the speed and complexity of the world increases, governments and nonprofit organizations need new ways to effectively tackle the critical challenges of our time—from pandemics and global warming to social media warfare. In Power to the Public, Tara Dawson McGuinness and Hana Schank describe a revolutionary new approach—public interest technology—that has the potential to transform the way governments and nonprofits around the world solve problems. Through inspiring stories about successful projects ranging from a texting service for teenagers in crisis to a streamlined foster care system, the authors show how public interest technology can make the delivery of services to the public more effective and efficient. At its heart, public interest technology means putting users at the center of the policymaking process, using data and metrics in a smart way, and running small experiments and pilot programs before scaling up. And while this approach may well involve the innovative use of digital technology, technology alone is no panacea—and some of the best solutions may even be decidedly low-tech. Clear-eyed yet profoundly optimistic, Power to the Public presents a powerful blueprint for how government and nonprofits can help solve society’s most serious problems.

This is the Student Solutions Manual to Accompany Statistics: Unlocking the Power of Data, 2nd Edition. Statistics, 2nd Edition moves the curriculum in innovative ways while still looking relatively familiar. Statistics, 2e utilizes intuitive methods to introduce the fundamental idea of statistical inference. These intuitive methods are enabled through statistical software and are accessible at very early stages of a course. The text also includes the more traditional methods such as t-tests, chi-square tests, etc., but only after students have developed a strong intuitive understanding of inference through randomization methods. The text is designed for use in a one-semester introductory statistics course. The focus throughout is on data analysis and the primary goal is to enable students to effectively collect data, analyze data, and interpret conclusions drawn from data. The text is driven by real data and real applications. Students completing the course should be able to accurately interpret statistical results and to analyze straightforward data sets.

The bestselling bond investing classic―updated to help you profit today and position yourself for the post-COVID era and decade ahead Since the 2008 global financial crisis, the investing world has changed radically. Credit is more difficult to access, populations across the world are aging, and economic growth has been tepid. And now, the global pandemic has shaken the global financial system to its core. Investors are facing a future where structural—rather than cyclical—change will have greater impact on financial markets. In this new edition of The Strategic Bond Investor, you’ll find everything you need to generate profits while mitigating risk in the “new normal.” PIMCO Executive Vice President and lead investing strategist Anthony Crescenzi explains how deeply the bond market impacts the global economy, the best ways to invest in bonds, and how to “read” this market to inform your overall strategy. Along the way, Crescenzi provides unique and invaluable insights into the role of the bond market in recent economic crises (both 2008 and 2020), in an era of the rise of socially responsible investing, and at a time when we may well be witnessing a seismic shift in economic and financial power from the United States to China. Crescenzi draws on his vast experience, as well as personal conversations with Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, Janet Yellen, and other influential figures in finance, politics, and academia. He provides a glimpse at PIMCO’s storied investment process, along with numerous types of investment strategies to meet various investing goals.

An inclusive, digitally-enabled agricultural transformation could help achieve meaningful livelihood improvements for Africa’s smallholder farmers and pastoralists. It could drive greater engagement in agriculture from women and youth and create employment opportunities along the value chain. At CTA we staked a claim on this power of digitalisation to more systematically transform agriculture early on. Digitalisation, focusing on not individual ICTs but the application of these technologies to entire value chains, is a theme that cuts across all of our work. In youth entrepreneurship, we are fostering a new breed of young ICT ‘agripreneurs’. In climate-smart agriculture multiple projects provide information that can help towards building resilience for smallholder farmers. And in women empowerment we are supporting digital platforms to drive greater inclusion for women entrepreneurs in agricultural value chains.

The articles in this special issue of the New England Journal of Public Policy are unusual in two respects. First, they reflect the practical wisdom of seasoned actors, rather than the theoretical knowledge of academicians. The typically unexamined assumption of the academy is that good practice in the world is simply the application of sound theory from the academy. It does not take long in the public arena, however, to discover that leaders there are not applying theory from the academy to the decisions they face. Rather, they base their interventions on what they have learned about people, organizations, conflict, race, and politics in the rough and tumble of living in the world. Their working understandings may be valuably leavened by theory, but are not guided primarily by it. Second, the authors were not separate individuals working on isolated issues, like children engaged in parallel play, but rather partners in a fluid, informal, collaborative social action network operating in an environment of constantly shifting challenges and possibilities for change. The authors are not a collection of “Is”; they are a “we.” They decided pragmatically to connect their power—their political and financial and social capital—at critical moments to accomplish shared goals. The network grew more powerful in the process, becoming more than the sum of its organizational parts. This volume is ours, as was the collective action out of which it emerged. Like a choir’s songs, its articles give voice to a group’s experiences. Each is a part of a larger whole. Whenever I speak about how Hurricane Katrina changed New Orleans, an audience member invariably asks: “Would the changes you described have occurred without a hurricane?” The simple answer is “no,” but a fuller response is required to do justice to the situation: Nature can create temporary vacuums but it cannot fill them. The coalition-led public meetings, action campaigns, election fights, and legislative lobbying recounted here, and the transformations they caused, might not have happened in the wake of the great storm. But they did. In these pages you will meet some of those whose practical wisdom, courage and integrity drove those changes.
