  • In the past, the government often tried to ensure that we pay "a fair rate" of interest by implementing usury ceilings or limits on the rates that lenders can charge. During the 1980s there was a general trend toward eliminating or raising these limits as policy-makers reacted to the high inflation and record interest rates of the late 1970s. During the early 1990s, however, the trend reversed as some suggested that caps should be placed on credit card rates, which remained at historically high levels while other key interest rates declined significantly.

  • Irish IFs are owned mainly by non-residents, with 26 per cent held by other euro area residents and 68 per cent held by those outside the euro area and just 6 per cent owned by Irish residents.

Similarly most assets owned by Irish resident IFs are domiciled outside the state. When unclassified assets are excluded, just 9.4 per cent of capital is invested in Irish assets, 13.5 per cent invested...

  • Opportunity funds have delivered higher returns than core funds over the period 2003-2009.

  • As with every hypothesis test, inference based on alpha estimates can lead to the detection of a lucky fund, namely a fund with a significant estimated alpha, while its true alpha is equal to zero. When a single performance test is run on the estimated alpha of one fund (or one portfolio of funds1), luck is easily controlled by setting the significance level γ (or alternatively the Size of the test). For instance, if γ is set to 0.05, the probability of finding one lucky fund under the hypothesis that its alpha is zero amounts to 0.05, by construction.

  • The economy continues to undergo structural change as it shifts from being dominated by the agricultural sector. The shares of the service and industry sector in real GDP have increased over the last three decades, whereas agriculture accounts for little more than 10% today compared to 25% in the mid-1970s. Because of the widely diverging labour productivities in the different sectors and significant employment of unpaid family workers in agriculture these changes are not fully reflected in the sectors’ shares in employment.

  • Faster incorporation of new technologies into complex products and systems holds the possibility of ever-increasing advantages in cost, performance, durability, and new functionalities. A general perception on the part of many investigators is that incorporation of change is more difficult, expensive, and slow than it need be. The management of change in complex products and systems, however, does require an understanding of the significance of those changes as well as their consequences in terms of product performance and safety.

  • Nitrogen, found in commercial fertilizers and manure, is applied in many different chemical forms. Bacteria can convert all of them to nitrate, a form of nitrogen that can be taken up by plant roots. Nitrate is very soluble in water and is easily carried from farm fields into streams and rivers. Perforated pipes called tiles, which farmers bury under their fields to manage water drainage in an effort to maximize crop production, make the situation worse.

  • Individuals and businesses desire a certain quality from a GI service for which they are willing to pay a certain amount of money. If that GI service fails to meet the expectations in terms of quality and price, the service requestor is likely to patronize another provider. The availability of gradually differentiated quality versions of a GI service offered by a provider as a GI service product line enforces the user to self-select the price-quality combination that satisfies her or his needs.

  • The role of “mechanization” also needs consideration. Firstly, the asset base of farms must be appropriate to their needs – over capitalization will result in unprofitable farming. Secondly, it should be emphasised that the issue is management, and that mechanization is necessary to support modern management, no more and no less.

  • It is important to note that NPDES permits are only required of so-called “point sources.” Point sources tend to be larger industrial and commercial facilities and public treatment facilities. Some large agricultural operations are considered point sources, but, by and large, runoff from farms, roads, lawns, and most small pollution sources are not directly regulated. These “nonpoint sources” are the subject of increased scrutiny, since most of the nation’s remaining water quality problems are due to nonpoint pollution.
