  • Asia whose growing share in world output is also raising the oil demand of the world economy as a whole. Furthermore, a thin margin of spare oil production capacity is expected to continue into 2007 despite new supplies from both non-OPEC and OPEC countries, as existing production comes close to its short-term capacity while some existing fields, e.g. the North Sea, suffer from declining yields. Rising crude oil stocks, which are close to five- year highs, will do little to dampen the oil price given the lack of spare capacity in oil production.

  • The relationship between tuberculosis and mankind has been known for many centuries, with the disease being one of the major causes of illness and death. During the early 1980s, therewas a widespread belief that the diseasewas being controlled, but by the mid-1980s, the number of cases increased. This change in the epidemiological picture has several causes, of which the AIDS epidemic, the progression of poverty in developing countries, the increase in the number of elderly people with an altered immune status and the emergence of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis are the most important.

Needless to say, since the NGO was just being formed, she had to lobby tirelessly to sell YouthAIDS as a charitable partner to the network, artists and potential corporate sponsors. But as more of them started to buy into the idea, this triggered a positive spiral and others...

  • This reluctance on the part of mainstream lenders creates an opportunity for microfinance but also underlines the paramount importance of credit risk management in an industry that, in Western Europe at least, continues to be driven by socially motivated investors and entities supporting microfinance as part of their social responsibility initiatives. This realisation has a significant impact on the pricing of financing instruments to such types of entities and has arguably served to undermine the development of viable microfinance models in terms of self-sustainability.

  • Apple products are easy to use because they eliminate “clutter.” This same design philosophy applied to every Steve Jobs presentation. There were no bullet points in his presentations. Instead, Jobs relied on photographs and images. Where the average PowerPoint slide has 40 words, it was difficult to find seven words on 10 of Jobs’ slides. This technique is called “Picture Superiority” — information is more effectively recalled when text and images are combined.

  • We conclude that additional investments in cleaner production and products may be stimulated by widening the cost gap between the two types of technologies, for instance, by additionally charging for the use of waste and energy. The potential for continuously substi- tuting end-of-pipe technologies with cleaner technologies might be limited, however, since not all regulations favoring end-of-pipe technologies can be cut down. For example, addi- tional filters currently reduce particulate emissions of Diesel cars more effectively than the more eco-efficient Diesel engines.

  • Diamond and Rajan (2009) argue that securitisation also plays an important role in the transmission of interest rate shocks to the housing market. Securitisation allows banks to share risks by moving them off their balance sheets. This leads to an increase in banks' risk appetite and strengthens the `risk-taking channel' described above. To the extent that banks become more lenient in their lending standards, the 'nancial accelerator' effect may be strengthened as well.
