The article states: "In fact, Sonia Ben Ouagrham-Gormley —an associate professor at George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government, and one of the first to write about the challenges of addressing proliferation financing—recommended in 2012 that governments increase information-sharing relationships with the private sector.

Hilton L. Root published “Keynes, Hayek and the Roots of Complexity Theory in Economics” appears in the Spring 2018 edition of The Journal for Policy and Complex Systems. Abstract: This paper explores the deep roots of complexity theory in economics. It looks at the great debate between John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich Hayek—both of whom used theories that presaged the complexity science approach. That debate, often defined as a debate between optimism and pessimism, is really about how they viewed the economic system. Both saw it as a “living” system of interacting parts, and both aspired to a global order.

This article argues that Iraq’s obstruction of inspectors in the late 1990s was motivated by his desire to shield Iraq’s regime security apparatus from UNSCOM’s intrusive counter-concealment inspections, not a purposeful effort to create ambiguity as part of a strategy of ‘deterrence by doubt’. The failure to understand how strongly Saddam’s concerns about his personal safety drove Iraq’s contentious relationship with UNSCOM set the stage for the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

The results imply an increase of 3 to 3.5 jobs for each million dollars of loans, suggesting real effects of credit constraints. Estimated taxpayer costs per job created are in the range $21,000-$25,000.
