"To survive and profit in the 21st century world, organizations must plan their operations well into the future, including cause and effect of fiscal realities, both within and outside a project's principal scope.

The methods, concepts and tools discussed in this glossary provide managers, planners and engineers the means to determine a course of action resulting in the lowest cost, greatest profit, lowest financial risk, or other criteria; often based on comparative cost studies. Decision making information is derived, using the time-value of money for projects with one or more capital components. Examples include the setting of rates, taxes, revenues, fees or tariffs related to a civil works project or a new product, determining the feasibility of an undertaking, or to meet regulatory requirements.

Acleris uses business tools like these for analysis of complex client projects and have prepared this glossary to give managers and planners access to the knowledge relating to making sound economic business decisions, ever more necessary in our increasingly competitive yet cost constrained global industrialized society. We believe that organizations can make better decisions using these powerful tools, especially after the legacy of the dartboard economic decisions of the dot-com era."

(EN)-(PDF) - A Glossary of Terms and Concepts in Peace and Conflict Studies | upeace.org

"The mission of the University for Peace is to provide humanity with an international institution of higher education for peace with the aim of promoting among all human beings a spirit of understanding, tolerance, and peaceful coexistence, to stimulate cooperation among peoples, and to help lessen obstacles and threats to world peace and progress in keeping with the noble aspirations proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations.

 

The idea for this glossary originated with the positive response to the lecture ‘Definitions, Conceptions, and Debates in Peace and Security Studies in Africa’.


Delivered by Dr Ebrima Sall at the Africa Programme Advisory Meeting in Maputo, Mozambique, 23–25 October 2003, it was jointly written by Sall, then at the Nordic Africa Institute, and Dr Mary E. King, professor of peace and conflict studies at the University for Peace."

"R. H. Inglis Palgrave's original Dictionary of Political Economy (1894-9) was a landmark in both publishing and economics: a liberal and scholarly overview of the whole sphere of economic thought in its day. Henry Higgs's revised edition, Palgrave's Dictionary of Political Economy (1923-6), retained the spirit of the original publication while embracing new concepts in the development of economics as a discipline.

 

The four-volume The New Palgrave: A Dictionary of Economics, edited by John Eatwell, Murray Milgate and Peter Newman, was published in 1987 to international acclaim. Its scope had expanded and evolved almost beyond what Palgrave himself would have recognized, but the tradition of drawing together eminent contributors from across the spectrum of methodological and ideological schools produced not only an unsurpassed work of reference on the grand scale, but also many individual classic essays of enduring importance. Well into the 21st century it remained a standard work for economists in all spheres of the discipline and, as Palgrave described his original work, 'an almost unique example of economic cooperation'.

 

In 2008, Palgrave Macmillan published The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics, 2nd edition, edited by Steven N. Durlauf and Lawrence E. Blume. While some classic articles from the 1987 were retained, around 80% of the text was either entirely new or ..."
