An Economic Impact Study Of The "Boom" Period Of Baseball Stadium Redevelopment, Emily McNab 2010 Claremont McKenna College

An Economic Impact Study Of The "Boom" Period Of Baseball Stadium Redevelopment, Emily Mcnab

CMC Senior Theses

The intention of this study is to analyze the economic impact of redeveloped Major League Baseball stadiums opened between 1991 and 2004. Using two empirical models, including an event study, this impact analysis captures the economic conditions of the cities during the opening year of the stadium, as well as the prior conditions leading up to the opening of the stadium, along with any lingering effects or gradual changes in conditions. The impact was measured in relation to the Metropolitan Statistical Areas corresponding to the 18 ballparks included, specifically looking at the impact on employment rates and per capita personal ...


A False Sense Of Security: The Social Security Debate, Chris Shipman-Sercu 2010 Claremont McKenna College

A False Sense Of Security: The Social Security Debate, Chris Shipman-Sercu

CMC Senior Theses

My motivation to write this thesis is based on the controversy surrounding the Social Security system that has recently infiltrated the media. Through my research, I have discovered the debate concerning Social Security is not a recent development but has existed since the 1930’s. Many sources are warning citizens to no longer count on Social Security as they most likely will not receive benefits until a extremely old age if they receive benefits at all. Current retirees are fearful of either a decrease in benefits or not receiving the money they contributed to the system through the years of ...


China And Brazil: Potential Allies Or Just Brics In The Wall?, Anthony Petros Spanakos 2010 Montclair State University

China And Brazil: Potential Allies Or Just Brics In The Wall?, Anthony Petros Spanakos

Department of Political Science and Law Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

Brazil is an increasingly important actor in global governance and for China specifically. Sino-Brazilian relations have deepened considerably but they remain concentrated in areas of trade and investment. There is also considerable overlap in interests between the two countries in other areas, such as diplomatic and political relations. At the same time, China must manage carefully important differences that exist over the enlargement of the UN and the potential challenge to the Brazilian industry.


What Are The Consequences Of Consequentiality?, Joseph Herriges, Catherine L. Kling, Chih-Chen Liu, Justin Tobias 2010 Iowa State University

What Are The Consequences Of Consequentiality?, Joseph Herriges, Catherine L. Kling, Chih-Chen Liu, Justin Tobias

Economics Publications

We investigate the extent to which dichotomous choice referenda responses are shaped by whether the individual believes the survey itself will ultimately impact policy. Using survey data from the Iowa Lakes Project, we test this supposition. Specifically, we employ a Bayesian treatment effect model in which the degree of perceived consequentiality, measured as an ordinal response, is permitted to have a structural impact on willingness to pay (WTP) for a hypothetical environmental improvement. We test whether the estimated WTP distributions are the same for each value of the ordinal response.

In our survey data, a subsample of individuals were randomly ...


Economic Impact Analysis Of School Facility Construction, Wright State University, Center for Urban and Public Affairs 2010 Wright State University

Economic Impact Analysis Of School Facility Construction, Wright State University, Center For Urban And Public Affairs

Economic Development

In 2009, Huber Heights City Schools contracted with the Center for Urban & Public Affairs (CUPA) to conduct the economic impact analysis of new school construction on the local economy. For this study, CUPA used IMPLAN, a tool for economic impact assessment to estimate the direct, indirect, and induced impacts of the $159.1 million1 school facility construction project on the local (zip code 45424) and the regional economy (Montgomery, Greene, and Miami counties). It should be noted that these impacts are estimated for the project as a whole and not estimated for each year of the 32‐month construction period ...


Local Government Services And Regional Collaboration Grant Program: Advantage Sharing Program Feasibility Study, Wright State University Center for Urban and Public Affairs 2010 Wright State University

Local Government Services And Regional Collaboration Grant Program: Advantage Sharing Program Feasibility Study, Wright State University Center For Urban And Public Affairs

Economic Development

The Advantage Sharing Program, or ASP, is a multi-county collaboration comprising Greene, Miami and Montgomery Counties. The program’s purpose is to provide additional dollars to economic and workforce projects that have been developed by local governments. The projects submitted by local governments address the needs of businesses that are locating, expanding or sustaining operations. ASP provides to local officials a source of additional funding to meet business needs. Local governments apply for funds after their best offer does not secure a development agreement. This funding does not replace incentives typically offered by local governments. Requests for funding are made ...


Public School Choice And The Public-Private School Decision, Kylie Goggins 2010 University of Kentucky

Public School Choice And The Public-Private School Decision, Kylie Goggins

University of Kentucky Doctoral Dissertations

This dissertation is a compilation of three studies related to public school choice issues. Chapter 2 examines whether access to public schools of choice influences a household’s decision to choose private school for their child. I employ a multistate, individual-level data-set on students and their families — for which I have been granted access to restricted geo-code information. I supplement these data by matching students with their respective school districts using geographic information systems (GIS); I then examine whether relative measures of public school choice (PSC) in a school district influence the household’s public-private school decision. I find slight ...

Black Tuesday And Graying The Legitimacy Line For Governmental Intervention: When Tomorrow Is Just A Future Yesterday, Donald J. Kochan 2009 Chapman University School of Law

Black Tuesday And Graying The Legitimacy Line For Governmental Intervention: When Tomorrow Is Just A Future Yesterday, Donald J. Kochan

Donald J. Kochan

Black Tuesday in October 1929 marked a major crisis in American history. As we face current economic woes, it is appropriate to recall not only the event but also reflect on how it altered the legal landscape and the change it precipitated in the acceptance of governmental intervention into the marketplace. Perceived or real crises can cause us to dance between free markets and regulatory power. Much like the events of 1929, current financial concerns have led to new, unprecedented governmental intervention into the private sector. This Article seeks caution, on the basis of history, arguing that fear and crisis ...


Juridische Kaders In De Sociale Economie: Een Rechtseconomische Doorlichting, Astrid Coates, Wim Van Opstal 2009 Universiteit Antwerpen

Juridische Kaders In De Sociale Economie: Een Rechtseconomische Doorlichting, Astrid Coates, Wim Van Opstal

Wim Van Opstal

De sociale economie hanteert in ons land hoofdzakelijk het vzw-statuut en bestaat traditioneel ook uit (erkende) coöperatieve vennootschappen. In 1995 werd hier ook de vennootschap met sociaal oogmerk aan toegevoegd. In dit artikel bespreken we enkele randvoorwaarden voor een geslaagd ontwerp en een succesvolle implementatie van juridische kaders voor de sociale economie. Vervolgens bespreken we bondig de essentiële kenmerken van deze drie juridische kaders. We besluiten met een vergelijkende analyse en belichten daarbij de belangrijkste relatieve troeven en zwaktes ten opzichte van elkaar.


Radiografía De La Brecha Digital En Chile: ¿Se Justifica La Intervención Del Estado?, Claudio A. Agostini, Manuel Willington 2009 Universidad Adolfo Ibañez

Radiografía De La Brecha Digital En Chile: ¿Se Justifica La Intervención Del Estado?, Claudio A. Agostini, Manuel Willington

Claudio A. Agostini

En las últimas décadas la aceleración del desarrollo de las tecnologías de información y comunicación —en particular de Internet y el acceso a través de conexiones de banda ancha— ha generado transformaciones importantes en las sociedades. Sin embargo, especialmente en los países subdesarrollados y en desarrollo, el acceso a estas tecnologías y a sus beneficios no es parejo y hay diferencias significativas entre distintos grupos de la población. Esta llamada "brecha digital" ha llevado a muchos países, y Chile no ha sido la excepción, a preocuparse de promover el acceso a estas tecnologías. Así, hace ya varios años se crearon ...


Learning And Engaging The Information Values Of A Karst Community Of Practice, Kaya van Beynen, Spencer Fleury Ph.D. 2009 St. Petersburg College

Learning And Engaging The Information Values Of A Karst Community Of Practice, Kaya Van Beynen, Spencer Fleury Ph.D.

Spencer Fleury Ph.D.

The Karst Information Portal (KIP) is a publicly accessible Internet portal for karst literature and data, hosted by the University of South Florida (USF) libraries. It was created to foster interaction and collaboration among the karst community by identifying, acquiring, and facilitating access to karst literature in a single, centralized location. Karst is a type of terrain typified by soluble rocks, such as limestone, gypsum, and dolomite, where solutional processes are dominant, forming sinkholes, depressions, caves, and enhancing underground drainage. The karst community consists of formal researchers working in academic or governmental institutions along with an informal cohort of recreational ...

The General Equilibrium Incidence Of Environmental Mandates, Don Fullerton, Garth Heutel 2009 University of Texas at Austin

The General Equilibrium Incidence Of Environmental Mandates, Don Fullerton, Garth Heutel

Don Fullerton

Pollution regulations affect factor demands, relative returns, production, and output prices. In our model, one sector includes pollution as an input that can be a complement or substitute for labor or capital. For each type of mandate, we find conditions where more burden is on labor or on capital. Stricter regulation does not always place less burden on the better substitute for pollution. Also, restrictions on pollution per unit output create an “output-subsidy effect” on factor prices that can reverse the usual output and substitution effects. We find analogous effects for a restriction on pollution per unit capital.
