Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infects the liver and uses its cell host for gene expression and propagation. Therefore, targeting host factors essential for HBV gene expression is a potential anti-viral strategy. Here we show that treating HBV expressing cells with the natural phenolic compound curcumin inhibits HBV gene expression and replication. This inhibition is mediated via down-regulation of PGC-1α, a starvation-induced protein that initiates the gluconeogenesis cascade and that has been shown to robustly coactivate HBV transcription. We suggest curcumin as a host targeted therapy for HBV infection that may complement current virus-specific therapies. We develop a model of status seeking in the presence of incomplete information and derive its implications for aggregate savings. Status seeking endogenously takes the form of conspicuous consumption. Its Ugg Canada Shop impact on savings depends on the scheduling of the contests for status over the life cycle. If individuals engage in conspicuous consumption when old, aggregate savings are increased. We also study the role of social segmentation. While social segmentation reduces the inequality across status seekers and fuels social rivalry under complete information, we show that under incomplete information, social segmentation weakens the incentive Ugg Outlet to strive for greater status.
