Nevertheless, the system worked. In the presence of functioning global economic
governance, the global economy suffered only a temporary downturn. In its
absence, the world would have likely experienced an explosion of trade and
investor protectionism, an evaporation of liquidity, and a second Great
Depression. What about the future? It is one thing to say that the system has
worked in the first few post-crisis years. It is another thing entirely to assert that
current global governance ...

The findings of this research about the Watergate Affair can thus be summarized
as "the formal institutions helped" while the socially constructed and loose- knit
informal power dynamics worked and finally produced the outcome. It was those
informal interpersonal and collective power dynamics rather than formal state
institutions which played the major role that made the system work. THE SYSTEM

While the par value system worked smoothly for nearly 25 years, it had not
necessarily worked as initially envisaged. In fact, the system evolved in four ways
that had not been foreseen. Passive Role of the United States in Exchange
Markets The first was the way exchange rates were implemented under the
system. The United States assumed an essentially passive role in exchange
markets and in the determination of rates for the U.S. dollar. The exchange rates
of other currencies ...

They showed some interest in search strategy and recognized the value of
practice. Librarians also appreciated the need to educate users on how the
system worked and its limitations as well as the databases it covered. They
placed much emphasis on search strategies, including teaching users how to find
and use search terms, how to use search fields, refine searches, evaluate search
results, manipulate results, and so on. A fruitful strategy for increasing information
literacy on ...

DAVID R. CAMERON Ultimately, the system worked. Canada's parliamentary
democracy rose to its fundamental task; it held the government to account by
requiring it to fashion a policy that would enjoy the confidence of the House. Not

Consider where things stood as Canadians sat down to their Christmas dinner in
December 2008. An election had produced a minority Parliament with the
Conservatives ...

As gatekeepers start drawing up their checklists, they often take pride in being
comprehensive and making sure that they have covered all possible angles.
However, while having too few criteria can invalidate the process, there is also a
danger in having too many criteria. At a German company, we sat in on a
presentation where the executive in charge of innovation explained how the
filtering system worked. He needed several dozen PowerPoint slides to explain
the system, ...

My annual report for the year 1862 will show how successfully this system
worked. Where all were uninstrncted, and the duties imposed were new, and
sufficiently onerous, it was to be expected, that many difficulties would he
experienced in the performance of all the practical details neces_ sary, and that
many inquiries would be made and doubts suggested. But the system worked
effectively, and was founded upon the only fair and just principle for raising large
