"There have been intense debates on whether microfinance can lift people out of poverty. Summarising research across seven countries, this column argues that microcredit is a useful financial tool but not a powerful anti-poverty strategy.

(Dr/Prof?) Yunnus' Nobel Prize was based on his idea that we can wipe out poverty with microlending. I'd be disappointed if we can't prove there's a lasting effect in at least some of the cases. 
By the "studies" can be used to prop up any argument, I'm sure we could prove that IAX is still the best hope for VoIP :-)

A good summary rejecting the common story that only private business can create wealth, without any help from the public: government and all the citizens. 
Mariana Mazzucato argues that, in its search for a new leader, the Labour party also needs a new story about innovation, the economy and wealth creation

TIL our tech can work at - 35°C on a comet millions of km away. Mind. Blown. 
Tweet Rosetta's lander Philae is out of hibernation! The signals were received at ESA's European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt at 22:28 CEST on 13 June.

TIL there other expats feeling like me - sometimes feeling you don't fit anywhere. 
When you're living abroad and your country's in the news to this extent, two things happen: one, it becomes a constant item of conversation; and, two, you become a de facto ambassador, a defender, an expert, an apologist.

"When the [lower ranks] feel unfairly treated by those higher up – and accusing officials of corruption in a system where they cannot stay clean and do their jobs is arguably unfair – they have ways of making their displeasure known, including the simple but effective refusal to take the decisions which keep the business of government running."

Lessons to be learned for those fighting corruption everywhere.
