ESSAYS ON FINANCIAL ECONOMICS Further research with large-scale voucher programs will be needed to
determine whether administrators of effective schools are rewarded by increased demand in
the choice regimes that these policies create.
This book is dedicated to the many students we have taught over the years,
whose thought-provoking questions led us to rethink what we had learned as
graduate students. For all such questioning minds, we offer the research efforts
of scholars around the world who have come to the conclusion that uncertainty
can be decomposed into a risk component and a reward component; that all
uncertainty is not bad.

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
Truly great and rewarding projects do not happen without the vision, motivation, and
support of talented people. Such has been the case with Money for Life. I am grateful
for the assistance and support of many people without whom this project would not

To start the preface of the last edition, we wrote, “The
selling profession is at a critical time. For that past two
years, Manpower, the placement agency, has reported
that sales is the most difficult job to fill. Never in our 20
years of teaching sales have we seen the demand for
professional salespeople to be so great, which presents
you with a great opportunity. You have an opportunity
to participate in a period of rapid change for the sales
profession as you prepare young people for a career.”
Then the economic tsunami hit, and things changed rapidly.
Sustainability is increasingly being viewed as a non-negotiable added extra that comes at a
price, although it can offer financial rewards, particularly over the longer term. These
rewards are measured in micro (energy efficiency, recycling etc.) and macro terms
(greenhouse gas reducing, less resource depleting etc.), and are nearly always
environmentally-based. The social aspects of sustainabilty (productivity, well-being etc.)
must also be seriously considered. However, financial rewards from investment in this area
are less understood.
CHOICE IN HIGHER EDUCATION: COLLEGE MAJORS. FINANCIAL AID. AND TRANSITION TO THE LABOR MARKET The argument above, supported by the
theoretical model developed in the next section, predicts that ∂ 0

θ when δ is zero or large (i.e. when parents care only about
effectiveness or only about peer group).
Life-cycle finance is arguably the most important specialty in finance. At some level,
all institutions exist to serve the individual. But investing directly by individuals,
who reap the rewards of their successes and suffer the consequences of their
mistakes, is becoming a dramatically larger feature of the investment landscape.
A production tax credit (PTC) is an example of such a performance-based incentive that
provides the investor or owner of an eligible renewable energy system with an annual tax
credit based on the amount of electricity generated by the system. By linking the incentive to
energy produced rather than capital invested, this type of incentive encourages and rewards
projects based on performance.
Community health centers in partnership with skilled nursing facilities build on an
existing continuum of care and create caring and competent communities. Partnerships
with skilled nursing facilities can be financially rewarding, improve organizational
reputations, and enhance the overall capabilities of the health center and its staff. Beyond
partnering with SNFs some health centers may also choose to own and operate a SNF in
However, police and jails would be unnecessary if such attitudes always
prevailed. Rationality implied that some individuals become criminals be-
cause of the financial rewards from crime compared to legal work, taking
account of the likelihood of apprehension and conviction, and the severity
