Rescued from certain death, with love and care this brave little dog survived - and won the nation's hearts at Crufts. My name is Buddy and I love playing frisbee in the park. But life hasn't always been so easy for me. The day I was discovered on a wasteland outside London, I had been abandoned in a crate and was suffering from mange and severe dermatitis. I weighed only 3kg, and the vets said I was the worst case of neglect they had ever seen. They gave me only a few days to live. But my human friend Nicola showed me the love and affection I needed to pull through, and together we helped each other find happiness again. Now 11, I am adored by my online fans for my intelligence, my energy and my winning smile.

Can the Poor Save?

Many policymakers argue that the best poverty policy not only provides cash to the poor for subsistence but also incentives and structures that encourage long-term social and economic improvement. As part of this, they make the case for Individual Development Accounts (IDAs), a new policy proposal designed to help the poor save and to build assets. This book explores IDAs to determine their effectiveness. IDAs are matched savings accounts targeted on low-income, low-wealth individuals. Savings in IDAs are used for home ownership, post-secondary education, small business development, and other purposes. Do IDAs work? If they do, for whom? And does how an IDA is designed determine savings outcomes? This volume is the first analysis of matched savings by the poor to use data from monthly bank statements. It comes at a critical time, as debate rages over the merits of individual social security accounts. IDAs also respond to policy that is becoming more asset based and less inclusive of the poor. The authors argue for the efficacy of IDAs to counter this tendency. They find that while savings outcomes vary among participants, no characteristics (such as low income or public assistance) preclude saving. They examine effects of IDA design (the match rate, savings targets, and the use of automatic transfer) on savings results and analyze factors that influence varying rates of saving and spending over time. They conclude that financial education and other support services, though costly, improve savings performance. To address the issue of cost they suggest a two-tier system of IDA design, one with broad access and simple services and the other with targeted access and intensive services. Can the Poor Save? offers a wealth of lessons to those interested in saving and asset accumulation among the poor. It not only breaks new ground in the scientific study of savings behavior, but also offers concrete, evidence-based recommendations to improve policies designed to encourage the poor to save and how to make such policies more inclusive.

Welcome to a meeting with The Last Men in the Last Battles of World War II. Travel with them as they scale enemy escarpments, attack heavily armed caves and fly in cockpits against Kamikazes, visit them on Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Peliliu, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa, and learn why Admiral Nimitz said, “Among these men uncommon valor was a common virtue.” This book presents selected stories about thousands of Army Infantry, Sailors, Pilots and Marines who fought a brutal enemy. Hear Chaplain Sydney Wood-Cahusac say of those who did not return “Immortality is not our gift to give, but we can recall them as individuals, as human beings, as friends and not just as number.” The Keys, through personal interviews with eleven of these men, their sons, or best friends, have captured stories that present them as real persons with feelings about the war, the enemy and their buddies wounded and dying nearby. Read stories of how Sergeant Major Hank Clark led others to save New Zealand and how Mustang pilot Bill Stringer downed three enemy planes, though badly wounded while sleeping in his cockpit. Some Cam Home captures stories about the men’s families, jobs, joys, and problems after returning home.
