The US dispatched a large quantity of troops to Taiwan in 1950 and constructed American Military Housing in Shilin District. The United States military in Taiwan provided military and economic assistance. The preference to the US increased with enhancing national living standards so that local economic and cultural development were greatly affected by the introduction of the US culture. By applying DEA to measuring the performance evaluation of local governments, appropriate input/output factors are selected to efficiently evaluate the performance of local governments. To integrate the selection of input/output factors with expert opinions, reduce input costs, and avoid fuzziness in the investigation process, Fuzzy Delphi Method is utilized for sieving input/output factors. The research results show the relative efficiency of 2 local governments being strong-form efficiency, with the efficiency = 1, revealing the better relative efficiency. The relative efficiency of 3 local governments, 25% of all DMUs, appears in 0.9–1, presenting the relative efficiency of such local governments being more easily enhanced. The efficiency of 7 local governments, 58% of all DMUs, is lower than 0.9, showing the distinct inefficiency.
The analysis of household foreign currency (FX) lending begins with a short review of the theoretical and empirical literature. I investigate the factors that have helped or hindered such lending, particularly in Central and Eastern Europe. The study goes on to look at the experiences in Poland, Romania and Hungary. The choice is based on the fact that all three countries operate a flexible exchange rate regime and that household FX lending is prevalent in all of them. The analysis of each country touches upon the factors that have contributed to the local development of FX borrowing. However, the study focuses on the regulatory measures taken to curb such lending. The study concludes with a review and critical assessment of the policies that have been adopted with an eye to solving social and economic difficulties arising from FX indebtedness.
