The central theme of this book is national land and infrastructure design in the age of the declining population and the recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake in the affected regions in Japan. Based on the theory of spatial economics and evidence from Japanese history, the authors show that the growing economy with a population increase develops into a multi-cored and complex structure. In the population decline phase, however, such construction will be destabilized because of agglomeration economies in the central core. Then, a catastrophic shock that strikes may provoke the decline of the lower-rank-size provincial cities and their eventual disappearance if they compete only in lower prices of staple products. Not only is the practice bad for the residents; it also leads to lower national welfare resulting from the loss of diversity and overcrowded big cities. The authors argue that small local towns can recover and will be sustained if they will endeavor in innovative production by making good use of local natural resources and social capital. Under the ongoing declining population in Japan, an undesirable concentration in Tokyo will proceed further with increasing social cost and risk. The recent novel coronavirus pandemic has highlighted that concern.

Echoes of prospectors, forlorn widows and politicians linger in the streets and historic remnants of Nevada's former boomtowns. In the throes of early financial disaster, the Silver State had little to entice newcomers or discourage residents from leaving. Jim Butler's silver discovery at Tonopah changed everything. With a subsequent gold discovery near Goldfield, the rush was on, and from these burgeoning mines, Nevada's early leaders amassed their wealth and power. Paranormal historian Janice Oberding shares firsthand accounts of ghostly encounters in the Goldfield and Mizpah Hotels and uncovers the history behind the mysterious cowboy ghost, the haggard hitchhiker and other eerie local tales.

Firm leaders are dying, being taken out by an unknown enemy. The epidemic created by greedy corporations has grown out of control and the world is now a zombie utopia. Ally Lane wakes up aboard a cargo ship dazed and confused. She has survived the explosion of the Betty Loo only to discover she's in more danger than ever. The captain has a hold full of zombies and the doctor on board is out for himself. The reality of what is happening hits her when she sees a map of the infected areas. Armed with the truth, Ally must find a way to let as many people know what is really going on. She runs into a snag when the captain betrays her, turning her over to an enemy from a past she'd rather not remember. Mark Richards, the man responsible for who she is, takes her to his compound. She ignores his attempts at talking, the anger inside bubbling over when she realizes he is the one responsible for the death of all her friends and her fiancé, Marcus, on the Betty Loo. She fights her way free, only to find herself in the middle of hell. Charlie Myers, a former friend turned enemy from her past shows up and with the help of him and his men they escape. Ally doesn’t know who to trust, but has to play the game long enough to stay alive, figure out what's happening, and get a message out to those left. Joseph Erdman is the head of the Israeli Firm, but abandons his post when the undead close in. He heads for America and the one person who can help him, Ally. In a remote location, several forces collide and Ally must side with former enemies and turn her back on friends in order to save what's left of the world. Joseph has a plan, but he doesn’t share all of the details. While Ally and a team of mercenaries try to get him to the Old House so he can claim the Presidency and give people guidance in the time of crisis, another foe is heading directly for them. Ally finds the Old House and another structure where men in uniforms are taking a stand. Joseph has gone missing and her opportunities to broadcast the truth are gone. She knows nuclear weapons were part of the plan and decides to get to them first.
