Additional Information:This paper examines the use of marketing exchange theory in the nonprofit sector and argues that current mainstream marketing theory is ill equipped for such use. It is argued that this is due to its continued reliance on neoclassically derived assumptions of human behaviour, resulting in a dominant instrumentalist exchange paradigm. As the basis of this is individual rather than socially determined utility maximisation, achieved exclusively through the medium of exchange, it can be seen as inappropriate for application to this sector.
To explore this we study the dynamics of a small one dimensional Rydberg lattice gas subject to dephasing noise by numerically integrating the quantum master equation. We interpolate between the coherent and the strongly dephased regime by defining a generalised concept of a blockade length. We find indications that the main features observed in the strongly dissipative limit persist when the dissipation is not strong enough to annihilate quantum coherences at the dynamically relevant time scales.

The decline of rural employment opportunities, multi generation households, village shops and strong community networks has run parallel to the ageing of rural populations and the out migration of young adults to employment and affordable housing opportunities in urban areas. These trends have come alongside an element of counter urbanisation: an in flow of mobile, affluent commuters and retirees attracted by images of cleaner, greener rural landscapes and the slower pace of rural life.
It was kinda difficult. I burned through all my life savings pretty much. I assumed I would be in the poor house and paying the hospital for the rest of my life who’s gonna take a cancer patient, you know?” With help from one of Delaware’s marketplace guides, he picked a plan “that fit my financial situation and best met my medical needs.” Says Holback: “I’m proud to live in a country that makes it possible for a person like me to get insurance.”.
Today, Americans think they live in a free country. But most do not realize their entire health care system is structured in direct opposition to free markets and free choice. The sick care industry can’t afford for you to have a free choice, because to do so would destroy their entire business model..
