Jackson As A President: Yesterday And Today - 940 words
The Andrew Jackson Administration, from 1829 to 1837, was very important in American history. A self-made man, Jackson exemplified republican virtues by restraining a centralized government and promoting the powers of the people. His administration left a lasting impact on American politics. With his extreme usage of the presidential veto, Jackson strengthened the executive branch and rendered it equal in power to the legislative branch. These Jacksonian ideals of decentralized government can still be seen in politics to this day. Jackson was the first American president to have come from the frontier society of the American West. He was a one-generation aristocrat (Hoftstedder, 58) whose am ...

Ibm History, Ibm Corporate Profile 1890-1938: The Early Years - 1,938 words
IBM was incorporated in the state of New York on June 15, 1911 as the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company. But its origins can be traced back to 1890, during the height of the Industrial Revolution, when the United States was experiencing waves of immigration. The U.S. Census Bureau knew its traditional methods of counting would not be adequate for measuring the population, so it sponsored a contest to find a more efficient means of tabulating census data. The winner was Herman Hollerith, a German immigrant and Census Bureau statistician, whose Punch Card Tabulating Machine used an electric current to sense holes in punch cards and keep a running total of data.

Intellect Economics - Increasing Returns - 1,249 words
... and most popular in a market, such as DOSs, can only last as long as a particular wave lasts. So, we can usefully think of two economic regimes or worlds: a bulk-production world yielding products that essentially are based on resources with a little knowledge and operating according to Marshalls principles of diminishing returns, and a knowledge-based part of the economy yielding products that essentially are based on knowledge with a little resources and operating under increasing returns.

Microsoft Antitrust - 653 words
Introduction: An accurate understanding of the economics of the computer and Internet industry is a crucial foundation for following the logic of the Microsoft Anti Trust Case.
