  • We also suggest that interventions providing associated benefits in kind may be less likely than those offering a straightforward financial reward to be perceived as a 'purchase' of a body part: indeed, for egg-sharing we have noted the argument that the benefit being received is not financial at all in nature but rather the opportunity to bear a child. Given that one of the key concerns around any form of non-altruistic-focused intervention is the risk of material being mis- valued, we distinguish between these two approaches through rungs 5 and 6 on the Intervention Ladder.

Some states have a regulation requiring the insurance company and the agent to go through a worksheet with you to decide if long-term care insurance is right for you.

  • Following site characterization, working hypotheses about important mechanisms that control the behavior of injected CO2 are developed and tested. This approach has been studied extensively over the last decade from a risk assessment perspective (Savage et al., 2004; Lewicki et al., 2006). The mechanisms that have controlled past behavior, and will control future behavior, need to be understood through fluid flow simulation based on an understanding of the fluid and chemical processes active at the pore level and guided by available injection/production and monitoring data.

Perhaps, the industry has moved beyond the first phase, in which it established itself as a part and parcel of the investment matrix.
