    Determinants of poverty in South American countries by Fergin, Kaleb

    Ending extreme poverty is one of the United Nation’s 8 Millennium Development Goals; a goal hoped to be reached by 2015. In this study I attempt to determine the factors most influential on a country’s poverty level. I observe 10 of the 12 countries in South America over 3 time periods, 1998, 2003, and 2005, making 30 total observations of panel data. Variables that correlated positively in my model with poverty were population growth and the age dependency ratio. Variables that correlated negatively in my model with poverty were health expenditure, trade, government effectiveness and GDP growth rate. The most influential variables I found to be population growth and government effectiveness.

  • Thumbnail for Pocky Chocolate Biscuit Sticks
    Pocky Chocolate Biscuit Sticks

    Original Pocky, in all its glory. Pocky chocolate is Japan's number one treat. In 1965, the company Glico sold Chocotek, Pocky's original name, for the first time. At that time, Chocotek was sold for 60 yen per box. The product was expected to gross 10 billion yen in the first two years but exceeded expectations threefold. After that, Chocotek was renamed Pocky because of the pockin sound that it made when eaten. In 1971, Glico invented a new flavor, Almond Pocky. Six years later, Strawberry Pocky was invented. Now, a new flavor of Pocky is released every year.
