  • The data allow us to focus on eight basic questions about the microfinance “industry”: Who are the lenders? How widespread is profitability? Are loans in fact repaid at the high rates advertised? Who are the customers? Why are interest rates so high? Are profits high enough to attract profit-maximizing investors? How important are subsidies? How robust are the financial data? The answers then take us back to reconsider the initial questions of subsidy, profit, and social impact in microfinance. Who are the lenders? The clash between Grameen Bank and...

  • The process of counting correct answers began by assigning a value to the responses to each question (Table 6). Where countries have substituted questions, or reworded them, we have also given a value of 1 to a correct response and 0 in all other cases. In the case of a country with fewer than 8 financial knowledge questions we have rescaled each score as necessary (typically multiplying by a factor of 8/7).

  • Whilst we are cautious about making firm conclusions about the similarities and differences of countries from the pilot data because of the different questions used in some cases, we have employed a statistically conservative approach to analysing across the countries in order to look for general patterns. We have used an approach that looks at the average scores for each country, and then groups the countries according to whether or not their results are significantly different.

  • It is surely one of the best –one of the most interesting and most important –questions in the history of human inquiry. It can be asked as plainly as we like, yet be disputed as fiercely as any, ever: Why do you believe what you do, and not something else? We can ask this question generally or specifically, grandly or trivially. It can, for instance, be about the origin of the universe or the fate of next season’s marigolds, the existence of God or the prospects for the Miami Hurricanes or the TottenhamHotspurs, the best treatment for breast cancer or the worst way to play bridge.

  • Unsustainable growth in medical spending has sparked interest in the question of whether prevention saves money and could be the answer to the health care crisis. But the question misses the point. What should matter (for both prevention and treatment services) is value -- the health benefit per dollar invested. We discuss a package of effective clinical preventive services that improves health at a relatively low cost. Cost-effectiveness should also be examined for disease care, the major driver of health spending.

  • The risk of arterial disease and microvascular complications in people with diabetes are known to be related to the extent of hyperglycaemia with time. While the lifestyle, oral agent, and injectable therapies discussed in this guideline can improve blood glucose control, their efficacy is limited, as the underlying pathogenesis of diabetes worsens with time. As symptoms are not a reliable guide to blood glucose control in people on therapy, it is important to have an accurate means of measuring blood glucose control over time, to enable decision-making.

  • The objective of this paper is to estimate the covariance matrix of stock returns. This is a fundamental question in empirical Finance with implications for portfolio selection and for tests of asset pricing models such as the CAPM. The traditional estimator — the sample covariance matrix — is seldom used because it imposes too little structure. When the number of stocks N is of the same order of magnitude as the number of historical returns per stock T, the total number of parameters to estimate is of the same order as the total size of the data set, which is clearly problematic.

  • For some doctors in affluent countries the first question about prevention of coronary heart disease (CHD) nowadays is whether to write a prescription for one of the statins (simvastatin, pravastatin, fluvastatin, atorvastatin, etc) which inhibit an early step of cholesterol biosynthesis in the body (see p 7). Tables are available to show whether the 5- or 10-year risk justifies the cost of long term statin medication, but the relation of diet and CHD is still of primary importance for the majority of people. What we eat is bound up with the aetiology of CHD.
