      Essayad, Musa; Gordon, David (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska., 1990)
      In their endeavor to sketch a strategic plan for the 1990s, the board of directors of the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority (AIDEA) asked the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) of the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) to render independent, professional advice on how to establish a framework for evaluating AIDEA's direction and options for the future. The analysis and findings of the study are based on the policy and functional issues unique to AIDEA, and on the experiences of similar development financing institutions in other countries. A summary of findings and recommendations follows this introduction, and four subsequent chapters detail our findings.
