  • The theoretical metrics developed, such as genetic variance and heritability (Fisher, 1930; Wright, 1931), provided the quantitative standards necessary for the evolutionary synthesis. Further research has focused on the origin of genetic diversity, its maintenance and its role in evolution. Simple questions such as “who breeds with whom” initiated studies on the relatedness of populations.

  • The observed differences between willingness to pay and willingness to accept have been labeled an “endowment effect”, intimating that the phenomena is due to loss- aversion to the domain of choices over bundles of goods and money (Thaler, 1980; Tversky and Kahneman, 1991;Camerer, Loewenstein and Prelec,2003). The theoretical idea is that an individual who owns a good anticipates a loss from the sale and, thus requires a higher payoff than the individual would pay to acquire the good if it were not owned (Kahneman 1991, Kahneman 1990, Knetsch 1989, Knetsch 1984).

  • It is highly likely that by augmenting the amount of funding available to banks, securitization activity had a significant and positive impact on credit growth during the years prior to the credit crisis (Loutskina and Strahan, 2009, Altunbas et al., 2009). In a number of countries experiencing a period credit growth, securitization activity probably strengthened the feedback effect between increases in housing prices and the credit expansion.

  • The second reason illustrates a more profound difficulty. The image of nonchalance is linked in perhaps subtle ways to power, and ethical aspects of its use. A challenging book, born out of a deep understanding of mostly western culture, is Robert Greene’s The concise 48 Laws of Power. In his preface (page xii) he states, “If like the courtier of times gone by, you can seduce charm, deceive and subtly outmaneuver (sic) your opponents, you will attain the heights of power. You will be able to make people bend to your will without them realizing what you have done....

  • Many human societies have tended to identify and marginalise all kinds of people based upon their real or perceived difference to an accepted common standard, whether racial, physical, cultural or otherwise. Fear of diversity has led to prejudice, victimisation and oppression. It is hardly inconceivable to imagine that cloned humans at least during the early stages of introduction of clones into society may be the subject of abuse which runs contrary to their well being.

  • We are giving increasing prominence to environmental ‘performance indicators’ as complements to traditional emission limits. Emission data can be normalised for the scale of process operation and/or environmental burden to generate performance data that are valuable in targeting regulatory effort at the most important environmental issues. Performance indicators can address not only emissions (to air, water and waste) but also raw material use (including water and energy).

  • The previous section suggested that a long period of high government debt/GDP ratios may increase uncertainty about the future path of interest rates, both real and nominal. Doubts about how governments will respond probably increase uncertainty about inflation and, perhaps, about future growth. Macroeconomic tail risks seem to have risen. At least much market commentary suggests so – some talk about latent inflation risks while others fret about deflation. The credibility of fiscal and monetary policy frameworks in the advanced countries has been weakened by the crisis.

  • Traditional estimates that often find minimum wage disemployment effects include controls for state unemployment rates and state- and year-fixed effects. Using CPS data on teens for the period 1990–2009, we show that such estimates fail to account for heterogeneous employment patterns that are correlated with selectivity among states with minimum wages. As a result, the estimates are often biased and not robust to the source of identifying variation.
