The future of disability in America will depend on how well the U.S. prepares for and manages the demographic, fiscal, and technological developments that will unfold during the next two to three decades. Building upon two prior studies from the Institute of Medicine (the 1991 Institute of Medicine's report Disability in America and the 1997 report Enabling America), "The Future of Disability in America" examines both progress and concerns about continuing barriers that limit the independence, productivity, and participation in community life of people with disabilities.

Fiscal and Welfare Impacts of Electricity Subsidies in Central America (Directions in Development)

Fiscal and Welfare Impacts of Electricity Subsidies in Central America (Directions in Development) by Marco Antonio Hernández Oré
English | Oct. 23, 2017 | ISBN: 1464811040 | 221 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

Central American countries use approximately one percent of their aggregate gross domestic product to subsidize residential electricity consumption. This amount is comparable to what these countries spend on education and social assistance. The pressure that these electricity subsidies exert on government budgets is particularly high when international energy prices rise. Furthermore, electricity subsidies may have negative effects on the environment because of overconsumption of electricity and an increase in greenhouse gas emissions.

Higher education in Latin America and the Caribbean has expanded dramatically in the past 15 years, as the average gross enrollment rate has more than doubled, and many new institutions and programs have been opened. Although higher education access has become more equitable, and higher education supply has become more varied, many of the 'new' students in the system are, on average, less academically ready than are their more advantaged counterparts.
