22: Economics: Foreign Trade
... is spending more than it earns. This means that we have to borrow from other countries in order to pay for the things we purchase (imports). When we borrow from them we have to pay interest rates and these are additions to the original debt, therefor they increase the total debt owed. It is considered a bad thing to have an increasing current account deficit because we are borrowing from other countries and then repaying them even more, due to interest rates.

24: Could Gambling Save Science: Encouraging an Honest Consensus
... popular media tend to focus on those scientists prone to hyperbole. An honest consensus of relevant experts is often lost from public view, as advocates on each side accuse the other of bias and self-interest. Public policy can suffer dramatically as a result, a consequence that becomes more serious as the pace of technological change quickens. On the whole, current academic institutions seem less than ideal, with incentives that reward ... takes to publish (or perish). The social organization of any human effort can have a tremendous effect on its efficiency. Consider that different past societies with different ways of organizing science have had very different rates of scientific progress; compare Europe with China over the last five centuries.

On controversial questions, we want a clear measure of ...

As a consequence, the sharp run-up in short-term interest rates that had characterized previous financial crises was avoided in this case.
