  • “One size fits all” is not appropriate for poverty reduction, because con- ditions are different and because governments’ abilities are different. FOSIS in Chile, a fund that was not supported in any major way by the IDB, is a central part of the government’s machinery for poverty allevia- tion and is extremely flexible. The fund concentrates on productive projects, supports substantial microcredit activities, and imparts sub- stantial training to communities.

In the United States, infertility affects about 7.3 million women and their partners, or about 12% of the reproductive-aged population.

  • In this paper we examine whether and how accounting information about a firm manifests in its cost of capital, despite the forces of diversification. We build a model that is consistent with the CAPM and explicitly allows for multiple securities whose cash flows are correlated. We demonstrate that the quality of accounting information can influence the cost of capital, both directly and indirectly. The direct effect occurs because higher quality disclosures affect the firm’s assessed covariances with other firms’ cash flows, which is non-diversifiable.

We see what works, where it works, and why it works in one market, and maybe not in others. When we find anything new that has the potential to work better than our baseline programs, we incorporate the technique into our toolkit of tactics and menu of options for participants.

  • One advantage of conducting after-hours building walk-throughs to collect data on office equipment power status is that more buildings can be surveyed with a given amount of time and money. On the other hand, the data collected represents a snapshot in time, and does not capture variations in user behavior over time, which would require automated long-term time series metering of equipment power state and power levels. This is our most robust sample of buildings to date for collecting data on the after hours power status of office equipment.

  • The approach to assessing climate risks and im- pacts consists of the following sequential steps: (1) determining climate variables at the level of the city/watershed through downscaling techniques; (2) estimating impacts and vulnerability through hydrometeorological modeling, scenario analysis, and GIS mapping; and (3) preparing a damage/ loss assessment and identification/prioritization of adaptation options. As a first step, each of the city-level studies considered two IPCC scenarios, a high- and a low- emissions scenario, 4 and estimated climate risks to 2050.

  • One final word of caution. It is true that imperfect asset substitutability does give the government or the central bank an additional policy tool. But there is a qualification: Goodhart’s Law will eventually apply to debt operations. 14 The central bank may virtually fix the yield of its target bond. But if central bank action is known to have concentrated on a particular maturity, then its information content is compromised. Investors may judge that such paper is overpriced relative to paper of other maturities, and therefore avoid buying it.

  • There is a natural tradeoff in many cases between relevance and reliability. For example, the value of an infrequently traded asset may be very relevant, if the clear intent is to even- tually sell that asset to meet a liability. But the valuation of such an asset may be difficult or impossible to reliably determine. Different parties may place materially di fferent values on that asset, such that the reported value is impossible to verify by an external party or auditor. The only reliable value for the asset may be its original cost, but such a value...

  • David Smith began to exploit the potentialities of stainless steel as a medium in the 1950s. He employed this material for the creation of his Cubi, a brilliant series of twenty-eight sculptures that were destined to become the capstone of hid career.
