The global financial crisis quickly evolved into a full blown economic crisis that has hit the Pacific. The looming impacts look to be larger than expected 6 months ago, are unfolding rapidly, and are likely to be felt over 2009 and into 2010. Even if the global economy picks up in the second half of 2010, as the most recent forecasts suggest, it may take until 2011 for the Pacific economies to fully recover. This policy brief looks at the challenges created by the global economic crisis and discusses policy options to mitigate its impacts. Should monetary policy be relaxed? Is a fiscal stimulus appropriate? What would a fiscal stimulus look like, and how long should one last? What can be learnt from the actions of neighboring economies? These are the sort of pragmatic considerations that the region's economic decision makers are facing. This policy brief tries to help decision makers "take the helm" in finding a way through these difficult economic times.

This collection offers inspirational and motivational insight on the reality of living by faith. Thank God for a love that went right on reaching down to us, even after we nailed it to a tree! If we need to make some changes, picking January 1 as a starting point won’t help much. The changes God requires of us have to do with courage, discipline, and faith. They are spiritual battles that are waged daily, and we dare not leave them for the first of January. Sometimes we are like people going up in an elevator, holding on to our heavy suitcase. Put it down, and the elevator will take care of it for you. When living by faith, you are instructed to “give all your worries and cares to God for He cares about what happens to you” (1 Peter 5:7 NLB). Revival should be an everyday affair, where day by day I come under the lordship of Christ. It’s not what comes down from heaven that brings revival; it’s who is already in your temple and mine. It’s not a vertical downpour; it’s a horizontal takeover. As we allow the Holy Spirit to claim all the ground in our lives, that’s revival!

Widely regarded as one of the most active and publicly engaged university presidents in modern academia, Duderstadt— who led the University of Michigan from 1988 to 1996— presided over a period of enormous change, not only for his institution, but for universities across the country. His presidency was a time of growth and conflict: of sweeping new affirmative-action and equal-opportunity programs, significant financial expansion, and reenergized student activism on issues from apartheid to codes of student conduct. Under James Duderstadt’ s stewardship, Michigan reaffirmed its reputation as a trailblazer among universities. Part memoir, part history, part commentary, The View from the Helm extracts general lessons from his experiences at the forefront of change in higher education, offering current and future administrators a primer on academic leadership and venturing bold ideas on how higher education should be steered into the twenty-first century.

Joseph Bates was born in 1792 in Rochester, Massachusetts. At the age of fifteen, he accepted a job as a cabin boy aboard the Fanny, sailing from New York City to London. Thus began his career on the high seas, which culminated in Joseph becoming a respected ship captain. During one of his trips, Joseph read the Bible his wife had packed in his trunk and was converted. Thus set in motion his most important quest—developing a deeper understanding of Scripture and a deeper love for his Lord and Savior. In 1839 Bates accepted the teachings of William Miller. Then, months after the Great Disappointment, in the spring of 1845, Joseph accepted the seventh-day Sabbath truth. Consequently, he shared this good news with James and Ellen White, which resulted in his second career as a speaker, writer, and founding pioneer of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, which was formed in 1863. The Autobiography of Elder Joseph Bates provides an in-depth look into his childhood, his adventures traversing the ocean, his conversion and the reform movements he supported, and his study of Scripture and the biblical truths he discovered.
