dollars from the national budget. Concurrent with this economic aid, the United
States committed its troops to the Korean War, the first conflict in which inte—

1950-1953, the war ended with a stalemate, the loss of over fifty—four thousand
American lives, and fifty—four billion dollars in expenditures. In this tense political
context, ...

Taking up this challenge requires asking of our arguments or debates one of
Euben's recurring questions: “What is at stake—and what, specifically, for the

Fatalism easily shades into a conservatism from which standpoint any idea for
radical change – whether it be to increase IHT to pay for a generous citizen's
inheritance (as proposed by White), or to abolish IHT (as proposed by
Pennington) – seems unrealistic: 'They'd have to find the 2.4 billion elsewhere [if
we abolished IHT].' (female, 23, Oxford) 'In an ideal world I'd like ... on the basic

If it is our moral obligation to 'wade in' when in so doing we would prevent harm
befalling an innocent, then it is, surely, also our moral obligation to 'wade in'
when one person is acting so as to endanger an innocent person's life. So, while

running a significant risk of so doing — indeed, acting so as to be running a
significant risk of causing billions of future people almost unimaginable suffering.

Preussag stepped into the bidding, ultimately paying £1.8 billion ($2.995 billion)

of the BNP which raised FF28 billion and attracted 2.8 million shareholders (a
figure beaten only by the Paribas privatisation of 1986); the no less successful
sale of the state's 43 per cent stake in Rhône-Poulenc which raised FF13 billion;

executive Edgar Bronfman Jr, whose father once crossed swords with Minister
Farrakhan, raised eyebrows in the business community as well as the world of '

Nigeria is arguably the most vulnera— ble and unstable. Internally, it is under an
intense challenge from radical Islam as well as from armed, disaffected minority
groups in the oil center of the southeast. Its per capita gross domestic product ...
