  • Each household member records spending for the same two diary weeks, so we must pool observations across households to study expenditures over an entire month. Given that distance from payday is orthogonal to household characteristics, this pooling should not bias our estimate of the relationship between distance and spending.8 We impose a number of sample restrictions.

  • “KNOW THYSELF” and “To thine own self be true,” aphorisms taken from classic literary works and passed down through many generations as standard wisdom, remain popular even today. Centuries ago, when Socrates and Shakespeare penned those now-immortal words, they probably did not know that they were glimpsing a broader, more exact science—that of emotional intelligence.

  • Academic literature has raised questions about the effectiveness of such arrangements, pointing out that a "regulatory arm" of an exchange can be financed through the budget of the profit making entity. Unless the budget of the regulatory arm is both independent and substantial, the number of instances that it can investigate may arguably be insufficient (Brown, 2008). The importance of further insulating the regulatory entities which are part of exchange groups has therefore been repeatedly stressed in public debate.
