Synthetic Rubber by Attilio Bisio, Vernon D. Author Attilio Bisio, Vernon D. rbert /f Vernon io /f Attilio. They examine early attempts to extend natural rubber reserves.

Some effort had been made to develop synthetic rubbers prior to World War II. As early as 1860 it was known that natural rubber was made up of a hydrocarbon called isoprene. Around 1910, Hood Rubber Co. in East Waterton, MA had studied the manufacture of butadiene and similar materials for making synthetic rubber. Their most successful synthetic was e.

Consequently, by 1939, crude rubber was in dollar value the largest single commodity that was imported into the United States. That year, more than a half million tons of natural rubber were purchased, 98% from plantations in the Far East. In early 1942, after Pearl Harbor, the United States suffered an almost total curtailment of natural rubber shipments from the Far East.

This paper analyses the contributions of New Institutional Economics .

This paper analyses the contributions of New Institutional Economics (NIE) as regards. its ‘economics’, the problem arises that where there is economics in NIE, there is no history –. and where there is history in NIE, there is no economics. This dilemma is then met by NIE. proponents in a twofold manner. However, within economics and economic history, there has flourished a New. Institutional Economics (NIE), which has risen to somewhat of a new ‘orthodoxy’. notwithstanding the fact that its exponents wish to describe themselves as ‘non-mainstream’).

The history of economic thought deals with different thinkers and theories in the subject that became political economy and economics, from the ancient world to the present day in the 21st Century

The history of economic thought deals with different thinkers and theories in the subject that became political economy and economics, from the ancient world to the present day in the 21st Century. This field encompasses many disparate schools of economic thought. Ancient Greek writers such as the philosopher Aristotle examined ideas about the art of wealth acquisition, and questioned whether property is best left in private or public hands.

The authors recount how the synthetic rubber industry was created virtually overnight following the bombing of Pearl Harbor. They examine early attempts to extend natural rubber reserves. The rest of the story is that of the full scale effort by government, industry, and academia to develop a viable alternative to natural rubber within a short time and on an economically sound basis. The authors also provide an account of what has happened to the synthetic rubber industry between the end of the war and 1980, identify some lessons that can be learned from the synthetic rubber experience for government-industry programs, and draw parallels between the rubber dependency of the 1940s and the energy dependency of the 1980s.
