This note provides an overview of the uncovered interest parity assumption. It traces the history of the interest parity concept, summarizes evidence on the empirical validity of uncovered interest parity, and discusses the implications for macroeconomic analysis. The uncovered interest parity assumption has been an important building block in multiperiod and continuous time models of open economies, and although its validity is strongly challenged by the empirical evidence, its retention in macroeconomic models is supported on pragmatic grounds, at least for the time being, by the lack of much empirical support for existing models of the exchange risk premium.

This paper tests for uncovered interest parity (UIP) using daily data for 23 developing and developed countries through the crisis-strewn 1990s. We find that UIP works better on average in the 1990s than in previous eras in the sense that the slope coefficient from a regression of exchange rate changes on interest differentials yields a positive coefficient (which is sometimes insignificantly different from unity). UIP works systematically worse for fixed and flexible exchange rate countries than for crisis countries, but we find no significant differences between rich and poor countries.

We provide empirical evidence that deviations from uncovered interest rate parity (UIP) display significant nonlinearities, consistent with theories based on transaction costs or limits to speculation. This evidence suggests that the forward bias documented in the literature may be less indicative of major market inefficiencies than previously thought. Monte Carlo experiments allow us to reconcile these results with the large empirical literature on the forward bias puzzle since we show that, if the true process of UIP deviations were of the nonlinear form we consider, estimation of conventional spot-forward regressions would generate the anomalies documented in previous research.

One often wonders as they approach the union of marriage if this bliss will last forever. With the divorce rate in our society, many are skeptical to enter in the union that should last forever. Marriage is a social union or legal contract between people they call spouse. In our culture, a definition of marriage varies such as a union that is formalized by a wedding ceremony with two persons of the opposite sex. In the twenty first century, several countries have legalized same sex marriages. In some countries, marriage is compulsory before sexual relationship. Some marriages are arranged, some are done due to family obligations, legal establishments of a nuclear family unit, and the legal protection and public declaration of commitment. In spite of national laws, there are some people who have polygamous marriages. Marriage can be recognized by a state, an organization, religious authority, local community, or peers. Civil marriage is the legal concept of marriage as a government irrespective of religious affiliation. Forced marriages are illegal in some jurisdiction. There is no doubt that in many of these cases, careful thought and consideration is placed in this matter, but in the end, divorce has skyrocketed. Divorce is the final termination of a martial union cancelling the legal duties and responsibilities of the marriage. Between 1971 to 2011, several countries have legalized divorce. Divorce laws vary among jurisdictions. In 2009, divorce rate was 9.2 among men, and 9.7 among women; among the reasons given were irrevocable differences, infidelity, and abuse. Marriage can be lasting and there are many couples who could attest to that. We have to be clear on our reasons and motives and see if they are right. In this book, you will see the different ways each individual react to the marriage vow. You will see the fruits of true love. You will also see what lust is about. We will see where communication, compromising, and forgiving is important in any relationship. Most important, we will see if we enter this institution based moral principles as set forth by God, who is the inventor of marriage, we will be able to overcome the obstacles that we will come upon. First Corinthians 13 speaks of love that conquers everything. For those who are married and for those who intend to get married, be sure you are in it, or in the right reason, and that you are entering it for the right reasons.

Uncovered is the life story of eighty-three-year-old cold war veteran John Sager. An operations officer in the Central Intelligence Agency, his postings to pre-revolutionary Iran, Gamal Abdel Nasser's Egypt, and Nikita Khrushchev' s Soviet Russia thrust him into the midst of America's most tumultuous half-century since World War II. The author's memoir reveals an up-close vision of the nitty-gritty of cold-war intelligence work: recruiting and handling agents, devising ways to insert them into the hermetically sealed Soviet Union, managing the CIA's Moscow station, and running intelligence-gathering operations in the United States. Over his fifty-plus years of service, he experienced much of the CIA's silent struggle with America's principal adversary. Now he shares those reflections, through the eyes of a born-again Christian. But the story is more than that. Sager combines his spy craft with a passion for fly fishing, an avocation that took him to Russia's remote Kamchatka Peninsula, where he found the long arm of the Russian intelligence service waiting. And when he returned to the United States to stay put, he reconnected with the love of his life in a marriage that lasted barely five years, cut short by tragedy.

Greg was homeless. As he walked through the park one day, he was surrounded by people. Good people. Caring people. Christian people. People doing ministry. But people totally oblivious to Greg. No one saw him, talked to him, noticed him, or tried to minister to him. The Christians were preoccupied—working hard on the ministry they were putting together—a ministry intended to provide help and healing to the most vulnerable in their city, a ministry designed to reach . . . the homeless! How do Christians, benefactors of the overwhelming grace of an immeasurably generous God, fail so miserably at showing and distributing—of all things—grace? In voice and style evocative of Donald Miller and Scot McKnight, yet with a message all his own, Rod Tucker explores how we Christians have become masters of self-deceptive and fake moral living. Just like Adam and Eve, we don’t want anyone to know we are spiritually naked. But covering up around God denies us the freedom of his grace. Until we can be honest with ourselves, honest with God, and honest with others, daily grace will continue to elude us, either as gift received or as gift given. We remain trapped in our Botox spirituality until we come to grips with exactly who we are.

Grenada Uncovered distinguishes Grenada-a 120-mile tropical, Caribbean island- beyond the obvious notion that it is a tourist's paradise. It is the pictorial representation of a Grenada with rich history, pristine natural habitat, unmistakable developmental potential, and a people boldly desirous of progress. It reveals tidbits as simple as the appropriateness of names used in present-day Grenada and as complex as the meaning of the word, Grenada, in ancient Greece, Rome, and Persia. It covers topics germane to Grenada's international image: the rich harmony in its ethnic diversity; the wealth of islets that surround Grenada; livestock, fishing, and agricultural potential; historical treasures; and the resourcefulness of its people, whether in the making of locally derived toys or in the use of its waterways. A 246-page publication, Grenada Uncovered displays hundreds of full-color pictures that expose Grenada's beckoning aura; a tranquil landscape, reflective of confidence and composure; and a landscape that not only invites, but often seems to reward the pursuit of happiness. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Grenada Uncovered is an encyclopedia of Grenadian promise, fully substantiated in its representation of its unspoiled territories, breathtaking views, and coastal charm.

San Antonio is in the national spotlight as one of the fastest growing and most dynamic emerging major cities in America. Yet local lore has it that every Texan has two hometowns—his own and San Antonio. The Alamo City's charm, colorful surroundings, and diverse cultures combine to make it one of the most interesting places in Texas and the nation. In San Antonio Uncovered, Mark Rybczyk examines some of the city's internationally known legends and lore (including ghost stories) and takes a nostalgic look at landmarks that have disappeared. He also introduces some of the city’s characters and unusual features, debunks local myths, and corrects common misconceptions. Rybczyk embraces San Antonio's peculiarities by chronicling the cross-country journey of the World’s Largest Boots to their home in front of North Star Mall; the origins of the Frito corn chip and chewing gum; the annual Cornyation of King Anchovy; and Dwight Eisenhower's stint as the football coach at St Mary’s University. This completely updated, new edition of San Antonio Uncovered highlights San Antonio as a modern, thriving city with the feel of a small town that sees beauty in the old and fights to save it, even something as seemingly insignificant as an old Humble Oil Station; and its diverse inhabitants as those who appreciate the blending of the old and the new at the Tobin Center and fight to save what’s left of the Hot Wells Hotel.

Many Christians have told me to quit being so nit-picking and let by-gone be be-gones, that what happened in the past was then, and now is now and things have changed. But, that is not true. Christians still read from their so-called NEW testament that is full of Jew-bashing, so subliminal that most Christians overlook it. It is not my desire to claim Christianity is wrong and that you should not believe in your god - but I want people to think. Perhaps what you have been led to believe is wrong? Think... Why is it wrong for a Christian to deny the divinity of Jesus yet why do Christians turn their blind eye to Christians Missionaries trying to convert Jews against the basic tenants of Judaism? Why is it that most all pictures of the different characters in Christianity have a sun-disk above their heads? The Church made its own "spin" on this calling them halos, but didn't the Church change Sabbath to Sunday, the day of the sun? Who actually wrote the Christian bible that Christians all over the world swear it? The Church admits they really don't know for sure and only guessed. Did Jesus write anything in the NEW testament, or was his thoughts written by men who thought they knew? Why did it take 2,000 years before the Pope acknowledged the Christian hatred towards Jews and the need for Christians to repent? Why all of a sudden were the Church wrong and the Jews right?

Many Christians have written and spoken a great deal about the evil of atheism in one form or another. This book lays no claim for promoting atheism. The author strongly feels that a faith and a belief in a God and a subsequent religion which follows, is a matter of a personal choice. What the book does claim, is the facts that are hidden in Christianity, as a cover up for all the misdeeds that took place in the garb of religion six thousand years ago, if we are to go by the Christian calendar, and what is taking place today is the continuation of a trend that began in BCE.

Uncovered Treasures sets the reader on a path of discovery through Old and New Testament selections from the Word of God. These selections convey synonymous parallels when referenced with subject matters that are often overlooked, go unnoticed, or given total disregard. Ordinarily, when scriptural passages speak on particular subjects, be it person, place or thing, most often only the literal content of the area under discussion is given consideration. We may not always sense Gods Word as treasures hidden beneath the surface of verses that make up each chapter. God speaks to our hearts through his Word on common, ordinary matters that we in secret rationalize for ourselves or search for explanations and answers. In our quest to realize the reassurance and affirmation we individually seek, our resolution begins with the Word. At the onset of each chapter, scriptures are presented to set in motion revelations that follow in a down-to-earth manner with realistic implications uncovered from the Word. Mind Power reveals how knowledge is a powerful tool and to be short of it may lead to forms of destruction within our own parameters. God Meets us Where We Are shows us that deep in the fragility of our self-worth are the answers to lifes thirst for satisfaction. Positioning illustrates the importance and place for order and progress in our lives. More than Enough proclaims the Creators unyielding flow of abundance as constant and steadfast. Containers of Power makes known our ability to create and influence with words. Self-Portrait challenges us from being what we are to becoming who we are. This compilation of heartfelt writings will allow the reader, through the Word, to understand depth and insight from some of lifes common events. The practical and simplistic conversational style offered by the author will cause the reader to ponder personal introspect and self-evaluation, while being inspired, enlightened and encouraged.
