The Psychopath Inside

Memo

p.101: A freshman and a senior in college are very differet human beings.  Sending kids to war at eighteen is ridiculous, as they're still in an active state of frontal lobe development.

Inputs in the Production of Early Childhood Human Capital: Evidence from Head Start

Inputs in the Production of Early Childhood Human Capital: Evidence from Head Start Christopher Walters NBER Working Paper No. 20639 Issued in October 2014

My results show that Head Start centers offering full-day service boost cognitive skills more than other centers, while Head Start centers offering frequent home visiting are especially effective at raising non-cognitive skills. Head Start is also more effective for children with less-educated mothers.

途上国支援の一アイデア

途上国は経営者の人的資本が弱い(La Porta and Shleifer 2014)。途上国のNGO/NPOも弱いだろう。大会社からファンドをとって、Freeeを英語化。それを使えるようになった先進国(日本でもよい)middle-level managerが現地に飛んで、現地NGO/NPOを数か月で支援。当該managerはlocal marketを理解できるので将来のBOPに繋がる。

日本のmanagement practiceが弱いのでmanagerを送っても駄目だという議論には、日本のmanagement practiceは弱くない(Bloom and Van Reenen 2010)と反論できます。

Managementが大事だという議論については、Does Management Matter? Evidence from India. By: Bloom, Nicholas; Eifert, Benn; Mahajan, Aprajit; McKenzie, David; Roberts, John. Quarterly Journal of Economics. なお、ここでテストされている企業はフォーマルなようなので、basicな会計などは持っているはず。
