An Experimental Examination Of The Walrasian Tatonnement Mechanism, Vernon Smith, Corinne Bronfman, Kevin Mccabe, David Porter, Stephen Rassenti Mar 2014

An Experimental Examination Of The Walrasian Tatonnement Mechanism, Vernon Smith, Corinne Bronfman, Kevin Mccabe, David Porter, Stephen Rassenti

Kevin A McCabe

This is a systematic experimental comparison of the efficiency and competitive properties of a computerized multiunit tatonnement with or without a dynamic improvement rule, with or without publicity of order flow information. All versions of the tatonnement are comparatively less efficient than the continuous double auction. The tatonnement yields competitive prices, but both sides tend to underreveal demand/supply, causing inefficiency. Only the full-information, no-improvement-rule version of the tatonnement procedure approaches the efficiency of the double auction.

Such irreverence was nothing new to Nimrod. A half-century earlier he had encouraged [Abraham], who'd publicly renounced idolatry even though his father manufactured and sold graven images: how ridiculous, he reasoned, to worship clay figures that had been made the day before! Thus did Nimrod have Abraham thrown into a fiery furnace, from which, according to Midrashic legend, he emerged unscathed. Unlike Nimrod, Abraham eschewed power in favor of teaching ethics and morality to his people.

In the intervening years Nimrod concerned himself with the building of great cities as testimony to his own power and invincibility. And in ...

Accounting Adjustments For Amt With Commodity Sales, Neil Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

In the June 21, 1996, and the November 15, 1996, issues of the Digest, we examined in detail the potential liability for alternative minimum tax for installment sales and deferred payment sales of farm commodities. In this issue, we examine the accounting adjustments required in reporting AMT under the “substantial authority” that emerged in 1996.

Reporting Hta Losses, Neil Harl Dec 1996

Reporting Hta Losses, Neil Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

Hedge-to-arrive contracts, which in recent years had spread throughout Midwestern agriculture like a virus, pose important but difficult issues on how the losses are reported for federal income tax purposes. Some guidelines are well known and are relevant in determining whether losses are from hedges and thus are ordinary or are capital in nature.

A Fresh Look At Offender Characteristics, Nora V. Demleitner Dec 1996

A Fresh Look At Offender Characteristics, Nora V. Demleitner

Faculty Scholarship

As the Supreme Court has turned federal sentencing upside down in Booker, it has left a host of open questions in the wake of that decision. The outcome of these questions is often difficult to predict, for lower courts and commentators alike, as the Court has failed to develop an overarching sentencing philosophy to replace the rehabilitation-focused one that animated sentencing for so long. If the Court were to reach consensus on that issue, it would be better able to speak coherently on unresolved sentencing matters. This introduction to an Issue of the Federal Sentencing Reporter highlights some of the ...

The Essential Elements Of Judicial Independence And The Experience Of Pre-Soviet Russia, Thomas E. Plank Dec 1996

The Essential Elements Of Judicial Independence And The Experience Of Pre-Soviet Russia, Thomas E. Plank

William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal

Judicial independence, which first developed in the Anglo-American legal system, is valued by many countries as an important condition for the rule of law. Its existence in any legal system, however, depends on concrete institutional arrangements. In this Article, Professor Plank identifies four institutional elements necessary to establish and maintain an independent judiciary: fixed tenure (with limited exceptions), fixed and adequate compensation, minimum qualifications, and limited civil immunity. The presence of these elements ensures an independent judiciary in many countries. The lack of permanent tenure for judges in most American states, however, raises serious questions about their independence.

Grappling With Gender Equality, Jerry R. Parkinson Dec 1996

Grappling With Gender Equality, Jerry R. Parkinson

William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal

In this twenty-fifth anniversary year of the enactment of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the issue of gender equity in athletics is as divisive as ever. Lawsuits by female athletes and the demise of many men's teams have changed perceptions of Title IX in the 1990s and have provided an impetus for a thorough reexamination of the gender equity issue.

In this Article, Professor Parkinson begins with a brief overview of the regulatory framework governing Title IX's application to athletics. He then examines the legal standards by which the Department of Education's Office for ...


Lynching And The Law In Georgia Circa 1931: A Chapter In The Legal Career Of Judge Elbert Tuttle, Anne S. Emanuel Dec 1996

Lynching And The Law In Georgia Circa 1931: A Chapter In The Legal Career Of Judge Elbert Tuttle, Anne S. Emanuel

William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal

Elbert Parr Tuttle joined the federal bench in 1954, shortly after the Supreme Court decided Brown v. Board of Education. In 1960, he became the Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, the court with jurisdiction over most of the deep south. As Chief Judge, he forged a jurisprudence that proved effective in overcoming the intransigence and outright rebellion of those who had long denied fundamental constitutional rights to African Americans.

This Essay traces an episode that occurred in 1931, when Tuttle spearheaded an effort to obtain a fair trial for John Downer, a ...
