  • Because an interest rate swap is just a series of cash flows occurring at known future dates, it can be valued by sim ply summing the present value of each of these cash flows. In order to calculate the present value of each cash flow, it is necessary to first estimate the correct discount factor (df) for each period (t) on which a cash flow occurs. Dis count factors are derived from investors’ perceptions of in terest rates in the future and are calculated using forward rates such as LIBOR. The following formula calculates a theoretical rate (known as the “Swap Rate”) for...

  • In the 1980s and 1990s, policymakers took a big leap, arguing that the new microfinance institutions should be profitable -- or in the prevailing code language, they should be “financially sustainable.” The argument for emphasizing profit-making microfinance institutions proceeds in three steps. First, it holds that small loans are costly for banks to administer but that poor households can pay high interest rates.

  • For example, take the claim that many poor households will pay high interest rates without flinching, and the related claim that the existence of moneylenders implies the insensitivity of most borrowers to interest rates. Moneylender loans are often taken for short periods of less than a month, however, and are often used as a short-term patch to meet pressing consumption needs--while microfinance loans are typically held for several months at minimum and are targeted at business investment. The standard Grameen Bank loan, for example, had a one-year term.

  • Using Fed funds futures rates to disentangle expected from unexpected policy actions, this paper shows that interest rates’ response to the “surprise” component of Fed policy is significantly stronger than the response to the change in the target itself; in fact, rates’ response to the anticipated component of policy actions is minimal, consistent with the efficient markets hypothesis.

  • The average total daily energy expenditure is higher in obese than lean individuals when measured at stable weight. However, energy expenditure falls as weight is lost, due in part to loss of lean body mass and to decreased sympathetic nerve activity. When reduced to near-normal weight and maintained there for a while, (some) obese individuals have lower energy expenditure than (some) lean individuals. There is also a tendency for those who will develop obesity as infants or children to have lower resting energy expenditure rates than those who remain lean.

  • Interest rate swap terms typically are set so that the pres ent value of the counterparty payments is at least equal to the present value of the payments to be received. Present value is a way of comparing the value of cash flows now with the value of cash flows in the future. A dollar today is worth more than a dollar in the future because cash flows available today can be invested and grown. The basic premise to an interest rate swap is that the coun terparty choosing to pay the fixed rate and the counterpar ty choosing to pay the floating...

Nutritional deficiencies, anaemia and stunting, for example, are more common in poor women who live in the less-developed regions of the country, in rural and indigenous communities or in marginal urban areas. On the other hand, overweight and obesity currently affect women of all income groups, but rates are higher in the more economically advanced regions and big cities.

  • When interest rates fall steadily and continuously, corporations may be able to save money by refunding their existing bond issues. According to Boyce and Kalotay [2], the accepted wisdom is to refund a bond issue when interest rates fall 1% below the coupon rate on the existing bond. However, the refunding decision is in reality a complicated one.

As with the frontal program, the test protocol was based on an existing Federal standard, FMVSS No. 214 “Side Impact Protection”, and again the test speed was increased by 8 km/h (5 mi/h). 1 Starting with the 2001 MY, the agency began using NCAP to rate vehicles for rollover resistance based on a static measurement of a vehicle’s track width and the height of its center of gravity. The test protocol was not based on an existing Federal standard. The Transportation...
