This monograph is a follow-up fabric to the 1st FRRPP booklet via Gerard Caneba in 2009. It contains extra conceptual effects, implementation of the FRRPP approach in emulsion media to provide quite a few block copolymers, and different FRRPP-related supplementary themes. Conceptual subject matters comprise the applying of the quantitative research awarded within the first FRRPP monograph for the incidence of the FRRPP strategy to the polysterene-styrene-ether (PS-S-Ether) and poly(methacrylic acid)-methacrylic acid-water (PMAA-MAA-Water) structures, in addition to extensions via unsteady country research of the incidence of flat temperature profiles.

Far from experiencing net inflows, Russia suffered massive capital flight over the decade. The longer period of communist rule in Russia compared with Eastern Europe meant that adherence to the rule of law was weak. Furthermore, Russia had the kinds of natural resources that, when combined with a nomenklatura tradition of state capture by a closed elite, were highly susceptible to appropriation by oligarchs. The outcome of all these influences was that in the Russian context it was harder to get good results from reform and thus harder to build, support, and sustain reforms.
In one place the bottleneck will be the weeks it takes to clear customs; in another it will be unreliable power. In most cases, the underlying problem will be an institutional failure involving, for example, corruption or inefficient regulation or poor incentives in the public sector, and the solution will require the design of new institutional arrangements with proper incentives and monitoring, together with regular feedback mechanisms. We must include among the problems here the norms of behavior of both public officials and private agents.
Too often, the public sector has been used as a means of patronage for the well-connected, through employment generation, rather than as an instrument for delivery of services to the larger community and to the poor. But even when the government wants to use public expenditure for the benefit of the poor, it is difficult to devise institutions that achieve this objective. If norms of social responsibility are weak among public employees, strong incentives or sanctions may be needed in order to change behavior.
