dc.description.abstract Time-dependent x-ray and radio observations of accreting sources give considerable insight into how jets might be produced, both in low-luminosity and high-luminosity situations. I discuss recent observations of binary x-ray sources and AGN that may have a direct bearing on jet production, and I review the theoretical efforts that have been made to understand them. While it is certainly true that jet production can be understood only with good accretion model, I also arue that accretion onto compact objects cannot be understood without fully taking into account the production of a jet. Jets are probably a fundamental aspect of some accretion modes. en
