3. Good sense from GiveWell on microfinance
4. And, finally, the relative price of different liquids:

Prices of different liquids.
I was not convinced about the graph (given you can not buy ‘blood’ but only blood products like erytrocytes).
So I did it again in Euro per liter …. using Dutch prices I checked > http://vanstokkom.blogspot.com/2010/01/literprijzen.html
I’m pretty disappointed about your link to GiveWell’s microfinance review. It is definitely not the solution to poverty but their review is both misinformed and cursory. They’ve done next to nothing to acquaint themselves with the real status of social impact measurement, credit and lending methodology, and incentives in the field leading to some spurious conclusions (in my own opinion).
