Southern Africa suffers from disproportionately expensive capital and this is denying the region its full growth potential. This book presents the ideas and proposals of a group of experts and practitioners from the state and business environments, brought together by the OECD Development Centre with public and private sector partners, on reducing the cost of capital in the region. It thus provides a unique insight into the nature of the problem of the cost of capital in Southern Africa and the effects it has on business activity and infrastructure development. In addition, the authors set out

Testimony on the distribution of revenues that could be generated by a cap-and-trade program for reducing U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide. The potential cost of reducing the effect of climate change may be significant because it would entail substantial reductions in global emissions over the coming decades. One option for reducing emissions in a cost-effective manner is to establish a carefully designed cap-and-trade program. Under such a program, the government would set gradually tightening limits on emissions, issue rights (or allowances) consistent with those limits, and then let firms t

Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) programs aim to reduce poverty by making welfare programs conditional upon the receivers' actions. That is, the government only transfers the money to persons who meet certain criteria. These criteria may include enrolling children into public schools, getting regular check-ups at the doctor's office, receiving vaccinations, or the like. They have been hailed as a way of reducing inequality and helping households break out of a vicious cycle whereby poverty is transmitted from one generation to another. Do these and other claims make sense? Are they supported by

For the last decade, one-third of military enlistees have failed to complete their first tours of duty. This report reviews the attrition rates of first term, active-duty military personnel who are separated within the first six months of their enlistments. Calculates how much the services could save by achieving their goals for reducing six-month attrition; determines the adequacy of the data that DoD uses to allow it to establish realistic goals for reducing attrition; and identifies the principal reasons that enlistees are separated from the services while they are still in training.
