In the Spotlight

Jonathan BauchetProfessor takes closer look at financial life of those in impoverished households

Some families in the world's poorest countries may spend half of their yearly income on a funeral for a loved one. Those families struggle to develop plans to meet these expenses, particularly since they have limited access to loans and other financial services. But thanks to research by Jonathan Bauchet, assistant professor of consumer science, families in that situation may now be better able to manage their financial needs and make the best of limited resources.

Quote of the Day

"I was stranded in New York City during the 2003 blackout, and for the next two years, I carried a small flashlight in my backpack. The flashlight did not cost much, but its potential to help in another blackout was obvious and to use it I needed only to press a button. For microinsurance to be accepted on a massive scale, it cannot cost much, its value must be obvious, and it must be simple to use." -- Brandon Matthews | Head of Microinsurance, Zurich Financial Services
