Adverse selection problem

• Banks have to be aware of a particular type of borrowers. Some borrowers will have hidden negative information not available to the bank. As the bank demands a higher interest rate, borrowers with safe projects will drop out. Hence, the fraction of borrowers with risky projects will depend on the interest rate. The higher the interest rate, the higher risk will be the pool of applicants. This is called the adverse selection problem.

Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing. Thomas Alva Edison
