    Wage subsidy could be seen as a way of "feeding" the capital asset represented by the training investment mentioned, which is a way of maintaining aggregate wealth. Without this, the assets are abandoned at a greater rate, a loss of wealth.

    The study is quite interesting. Are there significant differences between the emerging economies in the far east to developed economies and emerging economies like India and China in regard to the conclusions you have drawn?
    Have the legal and regulatory impacts made any positive impact on credit access.

    Pablo, Congrats!
    Where are the boundaries between personality, behavior, and behavioral change?
    And the boundaries on intervention? Public policy vs manipulation? Well, advertisement is full of manipulation and not always aligned with the common good.

    Congratulations, Pablo!
    Very interesting blog.
    In what aspects these personality features are related to more or less financial culture?
    For example, how being more extroverted conflicts with an effective financial behavior?
    And also this might depend on how we define to be financially savvy. For example, someone who takes more risks than the average, leveraging his activities, joggling between different activities might be seen as not financially capable from a narrow perspective, but he or she might be one of these geniuses that at the age if 30 becomes a tycoon....
    There might be limits to the scope and outreach of financial education. The main scope of financial education might be to help level the playing field for people with different backgrounds and skills to help them take decisions that be in their own financial interest.
    Really interesting to put the boundaries of FE beyond common knowledge...
