IC2 is a research institute which is active in developing programs in a variety of areas, from possible pricing strategies on the Internet to approaches to aid insurance regulators. This book examines the strategies and applications developed to forward these programs.
What can research contribute in the way of innovative approaches to deal constructively with the burgeoning problems related to juvenile delinquency? How can the Internet and the World Wide Web be used to advance health care? How should the services of the Internet be priced when the US government ceases its support? These are some of the questions addressed in this volume illustrating the impact of IC2.
The book is divided into three sections: the first examines new programs being developed by IC2; the second looks at new methodologies; and the third reviews new science. The research topics covered point to potential ways of bringing research into practical use. This book will be of interest to scholars and researchers interested in the improvement of management and social policy issues.
