'I'll be lucky to last a bloody year,' was the prediction of nineteen year old Charlie Schultz. That was 1928, when he first arrived to take up the management of Humbert River Station. A tiny run-down property in a tangle of wild ranges, neighbour to the vast and legendary Victoria River Downs, Humbert was at the very edge of Australia's last frontier. There were hostile blacks in the ranges, fences were almost unknown and wild cattle overran the stations. Battling loneliness, hardship and the wild bush itself, Charlie was to last the year. He went on to work Humbert Station for another forty-three years. Gathered from extensive interviews with Victoria River District historian Darrell Lewis, Charlie's remarkable life-stories intersect with the colourful events and characters of the day. Here are the renegades, ruthless bosses, floods and droughts, gun fights and spearings, Christmas sports and horse races that capture the historic sweep of Charlie Schultz's extraordinary life and achievements.

The astonishing national bestseller and hugely entertaining story that completely changed the way we run. An epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt? Isolated by Mexico's deadly Copper Canyons, the blissful Tarahumara Indians have honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury. In a riveting narrative, award-winning journalist and often-injured runner Christopher McDougall sets out to discover their secrets. In the process, he takes his readers from science labs at Harvard to the sun-baked valleys and freezing peaks across North America, where ever-growing numbers of ultra-runners are pushing their bodies to the limit, and, finally, to a climactic race in the Copper Canyons that pits America’s best ultra-runners against the tribe. McDougall’s incredible story will not only engage your mind but inspire your body when you realize that you, indeed all of us, were born to run.

This book explores how to set up an empirical model that helps with forecasting long-term economic growth. GDP forecasts for the years 2006 to 2020 for 40 countries are derived in a transparent way. Offering a systematic approach to models of potential GDP that can also be used for forecasts of more than a decade it fills the wide gap between the high demand for such models by banks, international organizations, and governments on the one hand and the limited supply on the other hand. Frequent forecast failures in the past (e.g. Japan 1990, Asia 1997) and the heavy economic losses they produced motivated the work. The book assesses the large number of theories of economic growth, the drivers of economic growth, the available datasets and the empirical methods on offer. A preference is shown for evolutionary models and an augmented Kaldor model. The book uses non-stationary panel techniques to find pair-wise cointegration among GDP per capita and its main correlates.
