Extractions: Click here to see Figure 3. increase in the excess burden of this tax is given by how much bigger the triangle to the right of the revenue box grew. That is graphically depicted in Figure 3 by rectangle "B" plus little triangle "C." To sum up, the government gained rectangle A and lost rectangle B. The taxpayer lost rectangles A and B and little triangle C. Whether it was a good idea or not to raise taxes depends on how much you value the government's need for revenue and how much you value the taxpayer's well-being. Washington Post on February 20, 1990. In the second paragraph, the Post goes through an analysis very similar to the one which I have just performed. A key difference is that the discussion is about CUTTING tax rates, not RAISING them. So, we have to consider the question in reverse: What is the GAIN in taxpayer well-beingor the reduction in EXCESS BURDEN per dollar of revenue lost by the Treasury? Post is talking about area A as a loss to the Treasury and area B as a gain to the Treasury from an expansion in taxable income. The editorial goes on to talk about the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) estimates of the burden of the tax, citing $100 billion as the amount by which taxpayers would be better off over five years. This is the JCT estimate of areas B and C. It then gives an estimate of the net revenue foregone of $11 billion. This is the JCT estimate of area A minus area B.

Extractions: This page is designed to help you get started searching the Internet. One of the first things to cover is some terminology. What we are dealing with for our purposes here are commonly referred to as search engines. A search engine is really a front end to a very large database that contains a listing of web sites. The listing is searchable by keywords or phrases. It is this ability to search the content that makes the Internet so appealing. The following is not meant to be the definitive list, but rather a starting point. There are quite a few more search engines available, but these will give you a place to start, and if nothing else, search for other search engines. All-in-One Search Page Yahoo Search General Tips for Searching These tips are designed to be general in nature. Most search engines have specific tricks for maximizing the accuracy of the search. Use a specific search engine's help page for the most effective search when using their site. What we will focus on, however, are some general guidelines to help you find the information you are looking for more quickly. Start with a descriptive word or a phrase that is enclosed in quotes. The quotes tell the search engine to search for the phrase EXACTLY as it appears. For example, searching for "The Black Cat" will find a match with the phrase "...did you see The Black Cat run..." but won't find "...did you see The big Black Cat run..." because the word big interrupted the search sequence.
Extractions: The 1998 ALA Midwinter Meeting in New Orleans, LA marks the beginning of the five year anniversary of the Association of Research Libraries' (ARL) North American Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery (NAILDD) Project At the beginning of 1998, over 70 for-profit and not-for-profit organizations and project participate in the NAILDD Project's Developers/Implementors Group (DIG) and/or the ILL Protocol Implementors Group (IPIG). The DIG is the vehicle by which the NAILDD Project seeks to facilitate collaboration between libraries and a broad constituency of private sector organizations. The DIG is an effort on ARL's part to be proactive consumers. The DIG serves as a forum in which to communicate the library needs to the vendors who could potentially offer these services. ARL seeks a healthy competition in the ILL/DD marketplace and thus encourages all vendors to participate. The IPIG was formed in late 1995 to expedite implementation of the international standard for ILL communication. This status report highlights and salutes the responsiveness of some of the more active DIG and IPIG members to the NAILDD Project's technical priorities. The sustained commitment of these organizations and the resources invested to achieve the Project's goals are recognized as key contributions to the future success of library programs and services.
