Examples of efficiently in a Sentence

  1. Arnold Ahlert:

    [A] deep-rooted culture of incompetence and corruption has made it virtually impossible for government to function fairly and efficiently. And because most government employees are shielded by layers of protection, they couldn't care less. Never before in the history of this nation has there been a greater divide between a self-serving federal leviathan and millions of Americans... 'Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem,' Ronald Reagan reminded us during his inaugural address in 1981. Nothing's changed since then, with one exception: It's gotten far worse.

  2. Neal McCluskey:

    You may not see prices rising as much, but you will still see huge amounts of wasted money, as people are encouraged to consume more education, and they’ll do it less efficiently as they aren’t presented with a price.

  3. Edsger W. Dijkstra:

    The argument against recursive procedures was always an efficiency argument: non-re-entrant code could be executed so much more efficiently. But with the advent of multiprogramming another need for felxible storage allocation has emerged.

  4. Chief Executive Bayard Gontijo:

    I want the time to use our cash in the most effective way. If it is for debt payments, then let's take time to pay the most expensive debts. If it is for a merger, then let's use our cash efficiently.

  5. Edmund Burke:

    It is by imitation, far more than by precept, that we learn everything; and what we learn thus, we acquire not only more efficiently, but more pleasantly. This forms our manners, our opinions, our lives.
