    The Multifaceted Impact of US Trade Policy on Financial Markets

    The Effectiveness of FX Interventions: A Meta-Analysis

    There is ample empirical literature centering on the effectiveness of foreign exchange intervention (FXI).

    Active Learning Improves Financial Education: Experimental Evidence from Uganda

    We conduct a randomized field experiment to study the effects of two financial education interventions offered to small-scale retailers in rural western Uganda. The treatments contrast “active learning” with traditional “lecturing” within standardized lesson-plans. After six months, active learning has a positive effect on savings and investment outcomes, in contrast to small or zero effects for lecturing. ...

We compare this with the effects of a rule-of-thumb training by itself and a control group. Targeting about 500 small entrepreneurs in Uganda, we find that the personalized ...
