There is no evidence here that Medicaid coverage leads to reductions in utilization in other dimensions. In fact, Medicaid coverage makes people more likely to visit the Emergency Department, and increases their number of visits relative to their baseline.
In Lukewarming: The New Climate Science that Changes Everything, Pat Michaels and Chip Knappenberger explain the real science and spin behind the headlines and come to a provocative conclusion: global warming is not hot—it’s lukewarm. Climate change is real, it is partially man-made, but it is clearer than ever that its impact has been exaggerated—with many predictions now being rendered implausible or impossible. This new paperback edition of the book is an expanded edition of last year’s ebook-only edition of Lukewarming, and includes updates in science and policy following the accords reached at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.

Accounting scandals at many corporations and the collapse of Enron and several other large corporations have led many investors to question the value of corporate accounting, the deregulation of energy and telecommunications, and the use of modern risk-spreading instruments. That, in turn, has led to demands for increased federal regulation of accounting, auditing, and the rules of corporate governance. This book, by leading practitioners in the markets for risk-spreading instruments, focuses primarily on the effects of the collapse of Enron on the markets in which it operated and the specialized financial instruments that it used and concludes with a caution about a political overreaction to those developments. Please join the experts for a timely discussion of these issues.
