The environmental economics literature has ignored the effects of the interaction among capital mobility, private and public pollution abatement, and cross-border pollution on environmental policies. We analyze these effects in the context of a general equilibrium model. We find, among other things,....

https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v753y2009p611-638.html

The market for schoolteachers, at least outside metropolitan areas, has frequently been cited as an example of labor monopsony. To test for monopsony, this study measures the employment effects of increases in state-mandated minimum salaries in two nonunion states: South Carolina and Texas. In South....

Random parameters logit models have emerged as a standard approach in estimating public preferences for a range of goods and services. However, to simplify calculation of welfare measures, the marginal utility of income is often assumed to be constant across the population. We show that by shifting ....

   Third Degree Price Discrimination in Linear-Demand Markets: Effects on Number of Markets Served and Social Welfare
Southern Economic Journal, Southern Economic Association
30-Nov-2007
https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v752y2008p558-573.html

We analyze the welfare impact of monopolistic third degree price discrimination when all markets are not necessarily served by uniform pricing. We consider n markets with linear demand curves. Each demand is characterized by the price intercept of the demand curve and by the size of the market, as m....

   Taxes and Agglomeration Economies: How Are They Related to Nonprofit Firm Location?
Southern Economic Journal, Southern Economic Association
30-Nov-2007
https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v752y2008p538-557.html

For-profit studies have investigated the effect of taxes and agglomeration economies on individual firm location, but these factors have been largely overlooked for nonprofit institutions. I use firm-level data to investigate how corporate income, property, sales, and individual taxes and the presen....

   Corruption, Centralization, and the Shadow Economy
Southern Economic Journal, Southern Economic Association
30-Nov-2007
https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v752y2008p524-537.html

In their pioneering work on corruption, Shleifer and Vishny (1993) find that a centralized bureaucracy results in lower bribes. Our paper extends the analysis to economies with formal and informal sectors. When corrupt officials operate in both sectors, bureaucratic centralization is beneficial when....

This paper uses national data from 1975 to 2003 to examine which alternative academic disciplines were chosen by undergraduates as if they were complements to, or substitutes for, an economics major. One familiar hypothesis suggests that majoring in economics is a reluctant choice for students more ....

Southern Economic Journal, Southern Economic Association
30-Nov-2007
https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v752y2008p410-428.html

Many production activities generate undesirable outputs in conjunction with the desirable outputs. In this paper we present the first estimates of a multiple-input, multiple-output directional distance function that relates good and bad inputs from home, school, and environment to good and bad outpu....

30-Nov-2007
https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v752y2008p383-409.html

Conventional wisdom is that depression lowers productivity. The magnitude of this effect has been of interest to economists and other social scientists as well as medical researchers. In this paper, I take advantage of the longitudinal nature of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 to inve....

   Free Cash Flow and Takeover Threats: An Experimental Study
Southern Economic Journal, Southern Economic Association
30-Nov-2007
https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v752y2008p351-366.html

A classic theory of corporate governance holds that when cash flow is high and investment opportunities scarce, takeover threats reduce managerial self-dealing and encourage dividend payment to owners. I conduct laboratory experiments studying the effect of cash flow on selfdealing and the effect of....

Southern Economic Journal, Southern Economic Association
30-Nov-2007
https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v752y2008p282-299.html

Though many empirical and theoretical approaches to comparative development assume that institutions persist for long periods of time, specific institutions vary a lot over periods as long as a century. Therefore, a convincing theory of institutional persistence must explain how persistence of insti....

   Wages, Productivity, and Work Intensity in the Great Depression
Southern Economic Journal, Southern Economic Association
30-Nov-2007
https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v751y2008p91-103.html

We show that U.S. manufacturing wages during the Great Depression were importantly determined by forces on firms' intensive margins. Short-run changes in work intensity and the longer-term influence of potential productivity combined to influence real wage growth. By contrast, the external effects o....

https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v751y2008p9-25.html

Media coverage of humanitarian crises is widely believed to influence charitable giving, yet this assertion has received little empirical scrutiny. Using Internet donations after the 2004 tsunami as a case study, we show that media coverage of disasters has a dramatic impact on donations to relief a....

   Monetary Policy in the Presence of Asymmetric Wage Indexation
Southern Economic Journal, Southern Economic Association
30-Nov-2007
https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v751y2008p69-90.html

We study optimal monetary policy in the presence of asymmetric wage indexation. We find that the monetary authorities do not react to small output shocks, and that their reaction to large shocks is asymmetric, insofar as they absorb positive shocks more than negative ones. As a consequence, we obser....

Using industry level data for Japanese foreign direct investment (FDI) flows to five Asian countries, we investigate how the sensitivity of FDI to the exchange rate changes across different industry types and exchange rate indices. Key results are as follows: (i) aggregated FDI data reported at the ....

https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v751y2008p261-278.html

The use of equity-based compensation is an increasingly popular means by which to align the incentives of top management with those of the shareholders. However, recent theoretical and empirical research indicates that the use of equity-based compensation has the unintended consequence of creating t....

In the aftermath of the Asian financial crisis, Taiwan's bank credits slowed down dramatically while the economy experienced one of the worst recessions in recent history. Whether the slowdown was mainly caused by the demand or the supply effect is unclear. An innovative empirical approach is adopte....

   Tipping as a Strategic Investment in Service Quality: An Optimal-Control Analysis of Repeated Interactions in the Service Industry
Southern Economic Journal, Southern Economic Association
30-Nov-2007
https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v751y2008p246-260.html

We present an optimal-control model in which tipping behavior creates a reputation that affects future service. Tipping and reputation can evolve in four path prototypes: converging to an interior equilibrium, converging to minimum tips and reputation, and two prototypes that start differently but e....

   Giving in Dictator Games: Regard for Others or Regard by Others?
Southern Economic Journal, Southern Economic Association
30-Nov-2007
https://ideas.repec.org/a/sej/ancoec/v751y2008p223-231.html

Recent bargaining experiments demonstrate an effect of anonymity and incomplete information on behavior. This has rekindled the question whether fair behavior is inspired by regard for others or driven by external forces. To test this, we compare a dictator game treatment that provides receivers wit....
