Biography As A “Tree Of Choices”: Discovering The Life Trajectories Of Young Entrepreneurs In Russia, Anastasia Poylova, Elizaveta Polukhina May 2107

Biography As A “Tree Of Choices”: Discovering The Life Trajectories Of Young Entrepreneurs In Russia, Anastasia Poylova, Elizaveta Polukhina

The Qualitative Report

The article reveals the life trajectories of Russian entrepreneurs in the context of four modern institutions of socialization which determine individual career paths—family, education, social environment and professional experience. Our empirical data were 20 semi-structured narrative interviews with entrepreneurs analyzed based on grounded theory (open and axial coding). We analyzed individual life trajectories as “trees of choices,” where the main branches are institutions of socialization, and the subsequent branches—individual life features. Finally, we showed the meanings of each institution and found out the determining role of gender and the city of socialization. The empirical output is a model ...


An Empirical Investigation On The Great Gatsby's Curve, Carlos Urrutia, Marina Mendes Tavares Jan 2106

An Empirical Investigation On The Great Gatsby's Curve, Carlos Urrutia, Marina Mendes Tavares

Carlos Urrutia

Cross country evidence suggests a negative relation between inequality and intergenerational mobility, sometimes dubbed as the “Great Gatsby's Curve". From a time series perspective, we analyze the relation between the increase in inequality and the observed trends in intergenerational mobility in the U.S. over the last three decades. As an empirical contribution, we document a significant increase in the intergenerational elasticity of earnings, both at the family level and at the individual level, between 1977 and 2012. However, we do not observe a significant trend in the intergenerational elasticity of family income, suggesting an important role for transfers ...

A Different Kind Of Black, But The Same Issues: Black Males And Counterstories At A Predominantly White Institution, Don C. Sawyer Iii, Phd, Robert T. Palmer Dec 2103

A Different Kind Of Black, But The Same Issues: Black Males And Counterstories At A Predominantly White Institution, Don C. Sawyer Iii, Phd, Robert T. Palmer

Robert T. Palmer, PhD

Much has been written about Black men over the years and in different institutional contexts (e.g., community colleges, predominantly White institutions [PWIs], and historically Black colleges and universities). However, very little of this research has emphasized how the intersecting identities of Black men shape their experiences in higher education. To this end, this article draws from intersectionality and counternarratives, both of which has roots in critical race theory (CRT), to discuss how race, class, and gender informs the experiences of two Black males enrolled in a PWI. This article concludes with critical implications to help institutional leaders at PWIs ...

Overparenting And Young Adult Narcissism: Psychological Control And Interpersonal Dependency As Mediators, Nathan Alexander Winner Aug 2019

Overparenting And Young Adult Narcissism: Psychological Control And Interpersonal Dependency As Mediators, Nathan Alexander Winner

Dissertations

Overparenting, or “helicopter parenting,” is a unique style of parenting characterized by parents’ well-intentioned but age-inappropriate over-involvement and intrusiveness in their children’s lives. Recent research has linked overparenting to the development of narcissistic traits in young adults, although the mechanisms of this relationship remain unclear. Two plausible mechanisms include the parenting behavior of psychological control and the increased interpersonal dependency of the child. Psychological control is a construct that overlaps with overparenting and has been linked to both dependent and narcissistic traits. Similarly, interpersonal dependency is a key predictor of narcissistic traits. Therefore, the present study sought to examine ...


A Systematic Investigation Of The Effect Of Wildfire Events And Risks On Property Values, Qiuhua Ma Jul 2019

A Systematic Investigation Of The Effect Of Wildfire Events And Risks On Property Values, Qiuhua Ma

Economics ETDs

Wildfires frequency and severity have been increasing in the western United States over the past few decades. This rising threat is caused by the accumulated fuel load, climate change, and the rapid expansion of housing in the wildland-urban interface (WUI). Since most mitigation and suppression costs are borne by taxpayers, policy analysts seek both market (e.g., protection and suppression cost) and non-market cost estimates of wildfires. As one tool, the hedonic pricing method is commonly used to investigate wildfire effects on property values. There are a variety of hedonic studies investigating wildfire, with mixed and/or inconsistent results. Model ...

The Right To Be Forgotten And Implications On Digital Collections: A Survey Of Arl Member Institutions On Practice And Policy, Virginia A. Dressler, Cindy Kristof

Virginia A Dressler

In the spring of 2017, digital librarians and digital collection managers at Association of Research Libraries (ARL) member institutions were surveyed on practices and policies surrounding takedown requests in openly accessible digital collections. The survey collected basic demographic information surrounding the digital repositories (anonymized) and presented a series of hypothetical scenarios for respondents to consider and reflect upon. The survey received a 25.8% response rate, with many intriguing insights. Survey findings are presented, along with a discussion on future recommendations for work in this area.

LinkedIn at the Library is a unique example of an academic library’s partnership with a career services unit.


2020 Census Faces Challenges In Rural America, William P. O'Hare Dec 2018

2020 Census Faces Challenges In Rural America, William P. O'Hare

The Carsey School of Public Policy at the Scholars' Repository

In this brief, author Bill O’Hare discusses how the 2020 Census will have ramifications for every person in the United States, urban and rural residents alike. Outlining the special challenges that will make some rural areas and populations difficult to enumerate accurately, he identifies rural areas where special outreach and operations will be needed to get a complete and accurate count. He reports that though the rural population is generally easier to count than the urban population, several places and populations in rural areas will be difficult to enumerate accurately in the 2020 Census. They include: blacks in the ...

Journal Of Qualitative Research In Sports Studies Issn 1754-2375 Overview: Guide To Contents, Editorials And Themes By Volume, Clive Palmer

Clive Palmer

The Journal of Qualitative Research in Sports Studies presents a valuable opportunity for students; undergraduates and postgraduates alike to write mentored publications of their research activities within the sport’s world. The papers are externally reviewed by academics from institutions (UK and overseas) who have an interest in researching sport and physical education. They also share a similar vision for raising confidence in students’ writing and encouraging greater involvement with researching sport from a qualitative standpoint. Towards these ends the journal has three core aims which the Editorial Board hope the reader will recognise as being educationally valuable in terms ...

Assessing The Role Of Tif And Lihtc On Affordable Housing Development, Jaime Luque Aug 2018

Assessing The Role Of Tif And Lihtc On Affordable Housing Development, Jaime Luque

Jaime Luque

The goal of this paper is to understand the impact of Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) and Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs) in an equilibrium model of affordable housing development. Developers in different jurisdictions compete to sell their LIHTCs to a corporation, and LIHTC prices are determined in equilibrium. In this setting, when a jurisdiction decides to provide TIF to its developer, housing becomes more affordable, but both the construction costs and the leverage ratio of the project may increase with respect to a project without TIF money. In essence, TIF ameliorates the demand for LIHTC equity and makes equity ...


Developers, Wall Street And Taxmen, Marta Faias, Jaime Luque Aug 2018

Developers, Wall Street And Taxmen, Marta Faias, Jaime Luque

Jaime Luque

We propose a general equilibrium model of commercial real estate (CRE) development in a multi-jurisdictions economy with segmented commercial good and equity markets. The CRE assets' capital structures and cash flows, the prices of equity, debt, and commercial goods, and the jurisdictions' property taxes and land use policies are all endogenous. The capital structures of CRE assets in different jurisdictions are interdependent. Shocks to a developer's funding capacity, the production of a CRE asset, and a jurisdiction's property tax illustrate this result. Our model also captures the impact that global real estate markets have on local jurisdictions' fiscal ...


Mortgage Default Risk Amplifies The Effect Of Systemic Risk On Risk Premium, Adilson Almeida, Marta Faias, Jaime Luque Aug 2018

Mortgage Default Risk Amplifies The Effect Of Systemic Risk On Risk Premium, Adilson Almeida, Marta Faias, Jaime Luque

Jaime Luque

In this paper, we derive a Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) formula from a general equilibrium model that allows agents to trade non-recourse mortgage debt in addition to risk free debt and risky equity. As in Geanakoplos and Zame (2014), borrowers must constitute collateral to obtain a mortgage loan, and effective mortgage payments are endogenous because default depends on the collateral value. Our main result is that binding collateral constraints (or, in terms of observables, a positive expected mortgage default rate) amplify the effect of a higher systematic risk on the risk premium of a portfolio with non-recourse mortgage debt.


Non-Prime Mortgage Market Structures: A Credit Scoring Perspective, Jaime Luque, Timothy Riddiough Aug 2018

Non-Prime Mortgage Market Structures: A Credit Scoring Perspective, Jaime Luque, Timothy Riddiough

Jaime Luque

Our theory rationalizes how credit scoring technologies control the availability of non-prime mortgages to low-income individuals who seek to own a house. The fundamental trade-off is the availability of soft information in credit risk assessment in the case of traditional banks versus secondary market liquidity in the case of remote originate-to-distribute (OTD) lenders. We incorporate this trade-off into a general equilibrium model where the non-prime mortgage market structure is endogenous. We show that increases in classification accuracy may result in a larger lax screening OTD sector. House price booms occur when low-risk borrowers migrate en masse into the OTD lending ...


Equilibrium In Fx Swap Markets: Funding Pressures And The Cross-Currency Basis, Jean-Marc Bottazzi, Jaime Luque, Mario Pascoa Aug 2018

Equilibrium In Fx Swap Markets: Funding Pressures And The Cross-Currency Basis, Jean-Marc Bottazzi, Jaime Luque, Mario Pascoa

Jaime Luque

    Departure from Covered Interest Parity (CIP), known as the cross currency basis, is not just a staple of crises: it can build up slowly and persist. Some bases exacerbated in 2008 and have not gone away since then. To understand this new normality, we turn the CIP logic on its head. We look at the Foreign Exchange (FX) swap market as the very market where scarce funding capacities are exchanged; the basis becomes an equilibrium outcome that compensates one of the parties for the temporary loss in the possession of one the currencies. Ultimately, the counterparty's funding pressure in ...


Leverage, Security Bubbles And The Regulation Of Repo Markets, Jean-Marc Bottazzi, Jaime Luque, Mario Pascoa Aug 2018

Leverage, Security Bubbles And The Regulation Of Repo Markets, Jean-Marc Bottazzi, Jaime Luque, Mario Pascoa

Jaime Luque

We examine the impact of regulation on repo, leverage, Ponzi schemes and bubbles. Repo Ponzi schemes can be done by creditors who collect haircut and then reuse the collateral that was pledged to them. In bilateral repo, only dealers have such haircut bene#12;t and regulation consists in limiting dealers' positions. In exchanges, the segregation of the haircut avoids Ponzi schemes. However, as we illustrate, both cases allow for bubbles when agents are not uniformly impatient. We also show that all agents may be worse off if repo markets were absent and that bubbles are robust to the endogenous ...

The question is to understand how repo funding and leverage induce banks to reallocate credit by geography and asset type.


Disability-Related Factors And Perceived Stigma: A Closer Examination Of Suicidality In Individuals With Physical Disabilities, Lauren Khazem Aug 2018

Disability-Related Factors And Perceived Stigma: A Closer Examination Of Suicidality In Individuals With Physical Disabilities, Lauren Khazem

Dissertations

Previous research has indicated an association between physical disability and suicidal ideation. However, the mechanisms contributing to the development of suicidal ideation in this population have remained largely unstudied within an empirically supported theoretical framework. The current study expands upon previous research by examining the relationship between different facets of physical disability and suicidal ideation intensity through the indirect effect of perceived stigmatization and interactions with mental states described within the Interpersonal Theory of Suicide, namely perceived burdensomeness and thwarted belongingness. Furthermore, this research aims to examine these potential relationships in a nonclinical sample of adults with physical disabilities ranging ...


Gendered Racism And Risky Sexual Behavior Among African American College Women: A Moderated Mediation Study Of Psychological Distress, Alcohol Use, Safe Sex Practices, And Alcohol Protective Behavioral Strategies, Danielle P. Cottonham Aug 2018

Gendered Racism And Risky Sexual Behavior Among African American College Women: A Moderated Mediation Study Of Psychological Distress, Alcohol Use, Safe Sex Practices, And Alcohol Protective Behavioral Strategies, Danielle P. Cottonham

Dissertations

Investigation of the effects of gender racism (i.e., discrimination based on race and gender) among African American college women is limited, which is concerning considering the impact this specific type of discrimination may have on mental health and coping behaviors among African American college women. African American students who have experienced racial discrimination and college women who have experienced sexual discrimination experience increased levels of psychological distress (i.e., symptoms of depression and anxiety). Further, harmful alcohol use is a common coping strategy for psychological distress among college students and has been linked to increased risky sexual behavior among ...


Explicit, Implicit, And Behavioral Stigmatization Of Mental Illness, Jessica S. James Aug 2018

Explicit, Implicit, And Behavioral Stigmatization Of Mental Illness, Jessica S. James

Dissertations

Mental health concern is a public health concern that continues to be stigmatized. While the dual process model has been applied to other areas of social cognition (e.g., racism), this framework has not previously been frequently used to examine the stigmatization of mental illness. The current study sought to examine the stigmatization of mental illness within a dual process model to determine the relationship between explicit and implicit stigmatizing attitudes and behaviors. A total of 104 undergraduate students from the University of Southern Mississippi participated in this study. Participants completed multiple implicit and explicit measures of stigmatizing attitudes and ...


Are Agricultural Professionals’ Farmland Value And Crop Price Forecasts Consistent?, Wendong Zhang, Wei Zhang, Chad E. Hart Jul 2018

Are Agricultural Professionals’ Farmland Value And Crop Price Forecasts Consistent?, Wendong Zhang, Wei Zhang, Chad E. Hart

Wendong Zhang

Using agricultural professionals’ forecasts of future farmland values and corn and soybean cash prices for their service area, we analyze whether their land and corresponding crop price expectations are consistent. We find that changes in expected land prices over time are positively correlated with expected crop price changes, suggesting these two forecasts are somewhat consistent. More importantly, we find that the linkage between these two forecasts is significantly stronger in the medium- and long-term as opposed to the short-term, as well as a substantially stronger correlation for districts that have heavier reliance on crop production as a net farm income ...
