How to use substitution in a sentence?

  1. Greg Daco:

    That's misguided, the type of imports that we bring in from China and the scale of the imports... make substitution, at least immediate substitution, nearly impossible.

  2. Timothy Kaldas:

    The policy of import substitution was popular during the period of decolonization ... It's one of those policies that looks good on paper but doesn't work, lots of things are imported because there is no alternative but also because they are cheaper than domestic alternatives. There are many imports poor people depend on. Even if in theory local production could pick up the slack it would take time and in the meantime we could see a sharp reduction in employment.

  3. Professor Martin Tangney:

    Butanol, which is our fuel, is an advanced fuel that's a four carbon alcohol, so inherently it has more energy, it has almost the same amount of energy as petrol, whereas bioethanol has only got 70 percent of it, you can store it and pipe it and use the existing infrastructure to distribute this, and in fact you do not need to modify an engine. So this is a genuine like-for-like substitution for oil or diesel - and moreover the fuel is not restricted to automobiles. It's currently being trialled in shipping industry and is a very good base unit for jet fuel.

  4. Peter Drucker:

    Management means, in the last analysis, the substitution of thought for brawn and muscle, of knowledge for folkways and superstition, and of cooperation for force. It means the substitution of responsibility for obedience to rank, and of authority of performance for the authority of rank. Whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.

  5. Jennifer Morgan:

    Material substitution is a false solution, it will just shift the impact to the world's forests and agricultural lands.
