Much of this growth was driven by use of expensive brand-name drugs, but price increases have been reported for some generic drugs as well.

Scotland's Lost Industries

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/scotland-s-lost-industries...
Until the 1960's The Clyde was synonymous with shipbuilding with many yards dotted on both sides of the river all the way from Glasgow to Greenock. Today they have all but gone, waterside apartments, exhibition centres and light industrial units taking their place. Scotland has many lost industries - from papermaking to gunpowder making as well as whaling, the motor industry, steel making, coal mining, shipbreaking and locomotive manufacture. Once, Scotland was a heavily industrialized country, making all sorts of industrial goods as well as food stuffs, cloth, coal, quarrying, paper, carpets and other goods. from jam to jute, from motor cars to aeroplanes, from sewing machines to ships, Scotland made them all. Nowadays the majority of industries found in Scotland at the turn of the twentieth century have gone, replaced by newer forms of manufacture - from the drilling of oil to the electronics industry. Michael Meighan takes us on a trip down memory lane, when Scotland was an industrial powerhouse, making goods for the Empire an Commonwealth as well as exporting to the world.

Early Whitewater Industry

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/early-whitewater-industry...
After the arrival of the Milwaukee and Mississippi Railroad in 1852, Whitewater became a regional shipping center that blossomed into a powerful industrial town. The Esterly Harvesting Machine Company and the Winchester and Partridge Wagon Works established their first factories in Whitewater after the coming of the Milwaukee and Mississippi. Their manufactured goods were known around the country for exceptional quality. A myriad of new inventions and patents came from Whitewater s business population, and Whitewater s farmers and dairymen consistently won prizes for their produce, while its factories produced reapers and wagons that won national competitions. In the 1890s, however, development suddenly stopped and Whitewater lost its economic clout in a few short years. This book explains what happened to Whitewater.

The Diet Industry

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-diet-industry...
Essay from the year 2010 in the subject English - Miscellaneous, grade: 98/100, Lindenwood University (-), language: English, abstract: With the number of obese children and adults in the United States rising year after year, the diet industry is given a growing possibility to make profit. Pills and shakes rule the nationwide commercials, promising a rapid weight loss and a youthful body. The diet industry makes billions of dollars every year by marketing and selling their products in a persuasive manner. However, those products are not the golden way out to lose weight. They can even cause severe health problems. Besides that, the diet industry should be federally regulated because its products are inefficient in helping people to lose weight, and the industry commits fraud by broadcasting misleading commercials.

This book, first published in 1973, analyses and sets in context one of the major issues in the growth of the European economy.

This book concludes with an account of the developments in worker councils and worker directors in nine other European countries.

Music Industry Management

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/music-industry-management...
Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2008 in the subject Communications - Broadcast and entertainment, grade: 1,6, London Metropolitan University (London Metropolitan University), language: English, abstract: Britney Spears is an American pop music singer, songwriter, dancer, actress and author. She has sold over 83 million records worldwide and is the only female in music history to have had her first four albums debut at No. 1. Britney's extremely successful career took off in the late 90's and was targeted at a teenage audience, with emphasis put on her projected image. Her at times controversial music videos and live performances have contributed to her success immensely as have product endorsements and merchandising. Britney, who was discovered by Larry Rudolph in 1995, was created and supported by a strong management team. Ever since splitting from long time manager Rudolph in 2004, Britney's management has changed constantly with even her being her own manager at one point. Combined with her current personal struggles this is having a rather negative impact on her career, with her image suffering greatly under these circumstances. Although sales for her newest album 'Blackout' have been doing well, critics tend to credit the producers rather than Britney herself. Other critics question as to whether the album, which is predominantly perceived as good, is enough to maintain her successful career. Taking all these current factors into consideration, it is advisable to contract a strong and stable management team for Britney who will step in to save her flagging career and simultaneously help her regain her high public profile.

Village Industries

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/village-industries-1...
Village Industries by M.K.Gandhi Pages - 68 I have no doubt in my mind that we add to the national wealth if we help the small-scale industries. I have no doubt also that true Swadeshi consists in encouraging and reviving these home industries. That alone can help the dumb millions. It also provides an outlet for the creative faculties and resourcefulness of the people. It can also usefully employ hundreds of youths in the country who are in need of employment. It may harness all the energy that at present runs to waste. I do not want anyone of those who are engaged in more remunerative occupations to leave them and take to the minor industries. Just as I did with regard to the spinning wheel, I would ask only those who suffer from unemployment and penury to take to some of these industries and add a little to their slender resources. Cent Per Cent Swadeshi, p. 5, Edn. 1958 The idea behind the village industries scheme is that we should look to the villages for the supply of our daily needs and that, when we find that some needs are not so supplied, we should see whether with a little trouble and organization, they cannot be profitably supplied by the villagers. In estimating the profit, we should think of the villager, not of ourselves. It may be that, in the initial stages, we might have to pay a little more than the ordinary price and get an inferior article in the bargain. Things will improve, if we will interest ourselves in the supplier of our needs and insist on his doing better and take the trouble of helping to do better. Harijan, 23-11-1934, p. 324 This is a constructive, not a destructive, programme. The big industries can never, they don't hope to, overtake the unemployed millions. Their aim is primarily to make money for the few owners, never the direct one of finding employment for the unemployed millions. The organizers of Khadi and other village industries don't hope in the near future to affect the big industries. They may hope to bring a ray

Industry in Towns

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/industry-in-towns...
Originally published in 1952. This book addresses one of the most pressing problems in town planning - the proper place of industry in our towns. The author writes from the standpoint of a town planner who realizes that factories are just as important as houses and schools, and that if industry does not prosper, all our schemes for urban reconstruction must fail through the lack of the necessary resources. In the course of his research he has visited hundreds of factories to get the necessary facts at first hand. Almost as a by-product he describes in simple terms the manufacture of such varied objects (to paraphrase Lewis Carroll) as "ships and needles and silverware; chocolates and glue." Plenty of photographs of industrial buildings in Britain and abroad are included, which show how great an architectural transformation is possible, and that an industrial area can become one of the showplaces of a town.

Airline Industry

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/airline-industry...
Many business sectors have been, and are being, forced to compete with new competitors-disrupters of some sort-who have found new ways to create and deliver new value for customers often through the use of technology that is coupled with a new underlying production or business model, and/or a broad array of partners, including, in some cases, customers themselves. Think about the disruption created by Apple by the introduction of the iPod and iTunes, and by Netflix within the entertainment sectors using partners within the ecosystem;?think of Uber that didn't build an app around the taxi business but rather built a mobility business around the app to improve customer experience. Airline Industry considers whether the airline industry is poised for disruptive innovations from inside or outside of the industry. Although airlines have a long history of continuous improvements and innovation, few of their innovations can be classified as disruptive innovations. The few disruptive innovations that did emerge were facilitated, for example by new technology (jet aircraft) and government policy (deregulation). Now there are new forces in play-customers who expect to receive products that are more personalized and experience-based throughout the entire journey, new customer interfaces (via social media), advanced information systems and analytics, financially powerful airlines based in emerging nations, and the rise of unencumbered entrepreneurs who think differently as well as platform-focused integrators.
