  • A coffeepot that was connected to the Internet (before it was even called the Internet) and which provided information about its status (long before there was Twitter). In 1991, researchers at Cambridge University shared a single coffeepot among several floors. The researchers were frustrated by the fact that they would often climb several flights of stairs, only to find the coffeepot empty. They set up a videocamera that broadcast a still image to their desktops about three times per minute — enough to determine the level of coffee in the glass pot.

  • To deal with the lack of reported information, we propose a novel approach to obtain the exposure contained in the net position in interest-rate derivatives. We specify a state space model of a bank’s derivatives trading strategy. We then use Bayesian methods to estimate the bank’s strategy using the joint distribution of interest rates, bank fair and notional values as well as bid-ask spreads. Intuitively, the identification of the bank’s strategy relies on whether the net position (per dollar notional) gains or loses in value over time, together with the history of rates.

  • While the resulting American health care model proved a clever way to ensure that the money would roll in from patients, employers, and government, it contained a flaw that is proving fatal. The flaw is that health care consumers have been removed from par- ticipating in decisions regarding their care. Our approach to health insurance ignores the important role consumers play in controlling costs and enhanc- ing quality. Dr. Gorman found that people who pay for their own care cut utilization by 10% to 30% with no discernable effect on health.

  • Priority-setting approaches in the area of health have slighted SRH concerns. A disease-oriented approach to health priority setting has not recognized the importance of preventing unintended pregnancies. The consequences of these extend beyond the direct individual disability concerns to social participation, familial health and complex empowerment issues. Returns to investments in SRH are, therefore, difficult to assess and often omitted from policy dialogues.

  • A number of companies operate bonus and performance plans simulta- neously.

  • On top of these pay disparities, women also face higher healthcare costs than men, which can put a serious dent in their incomes.

  • The idea to build small cars for the Indian market is almost as old as India’s independence. Already by the late 1950s, the Indian Government established a Commission with the task to look at costs and prices of motor vehicles produced in the country and invited proposals for the production of an ‘economy car’. In response, different manufactures submitted proposals. Tata, for example, submitted a proposal for the license production of a DKW light car.

  • An efficient capital market is one in which security prices adjust rapidly to the arrival of new information and, therefore, the current prices of securities reflect all information about the security. What this means, in simple terms, is that no investor should be able to employ readily available information in order to predict stock price movements quickly enough so as to make a profit through trading shares.

  • Many recent institutional reforms of the financial system have relied on the introduction of an explicit scheme of Deposit Insurance. This instrument aims at two main targets, contributing to systemic stability and protecting depositors. However it may also affect the interest rate spread in the banking system, which can be viewed as an indicator of market power in this financial segment. This paper provides an empirical investigation of the effect of deposit insurance and other institutional and economic variables on bank interest rates across countries.

  • Nevertheless, vitalism continued to find its way into the description of life processes. For instance, Pasteur writing about his discovery of the importance of oxygen availability for sugar fermentation by yeast, to be later known as the Pasteur effect, argued for the exclusive dependency of intact cell structure, a variant of cell theory postulated by Matthias Schleiden, Theodor Schwann, and their predecessors, and “ferments”, a set of biocatalysts represented as vital forces.
