Back To Work: Expectations And Realizations Of Work After Retirement, Nicole Maestas
This forthcoming paper analyzes a puzzling aspect of retirement behavior known as "unretirement." Nearly 50 percent of retirees follow a nontraditional retirement path that involves partial retirement or unretirement, and at least 26 percent of retirees later unretire. I explore two possible explanations: 1) unretirement transitions result from failures in planning or financial shocks; and 2) unretirement transitions are anticipated prior to retirement, reflecting a more complex retirement process. I show that unretirement was anticipated for the vast majority of those returning to work, and is not a result of financial shocks, poor planning or low wealth accumulation.

Income Taxes, Compensating Differentials, And Occupational Choice: How Taxes Distort The Wage-Amenity Decision (With Hui Shan), David Powell
The link between taxes and occupational choices is central for understanding the welfare impacts of income taxes. Just as taxes distort the labor-leisure decision, they may also distort the wage-amenity decision. Yet, there have been few studies on the full response along this margin. When tax rates increase, workers favor jobs with lower wages and more amenities. We introduce a two-step methodology which sues compensating differentials to characterize the tax elasticity of occupational choice. We estimate a significant compensated elasticity of 0.03, implying that a 10% increase in the net-of-tax rate causes workers to change to a 0.3 ...
Sustainable Value Management: Leading Organizations For An Integrated Triple Bottom Line, 2009 DePaul University
Sustainable Value Management: Leading Organizations For An Integrated Triple Bottom Line, Marco Tavanti
An organization without an integrated bottom line approach is not designed to last. Value management is the organizational glue which makes it possible to integrate financial sustainability with social responsibility and environmental concerns. This paper suggests sustainable value management in the context of recent developments in corporate social responsibility, sustainability and the triple bottom line. The author argues that economic, social, and environmental sustainability needs to be integrated into value-centered management. Sustainable value creation with leaders and managers leads to sustainable growth for 21st century managerial practices aiming to benefit both shareholders and stakeholders.
An Empirical Evaluation Of Three Post Keynesian Models, 2009 University of Massachusetts, Amherst
An Empirical Evaluation Of Three Post Keynesian Models, Ben Zipperer, Peter Skott
Structuralist and post Keynesian models differ in their assumptions about firms’ investment behavior and pricing/output decisions. This paper compares three benchmark models: Kaleckian, Robinsonian and Kaldorian. We analyze the implications of these models for the steady growth path and the cyclical properties of the economy, and evaluate the consistency of the theoretical predictions with empirical evidence for the US. Our regression results and the stylized cyclical pattern of key variables are consistent with the Kaldorian model. The Kaleckian investment function and the Robinsonian pricing behavior find no support in the data. JEL Categories: E12, E32, O41
The Multidimensional Structure Of Gottfredson And Hirschi's Concept Of Self-Control, 2009 University of Texas at El Paso
The Multidimensional Structure Of Gottfredson And Hirschi's Concept Of Self-Control, Gang Lee
The purpose of this study is to determine the unidimensionality of Grasmick’s operationalization of Gottfredson and Hirschi’s criminality inducing the concept of low self-control. By applying confirmatory factor analysis procedures that incorporate advances in the application, the proposed six factor model and two alternative models were examined suggesting that Grasmick’s low self-control scale actually contains 6 distinguishable factors, not a single factor. The factors identified to be consistent with the six factor model were impulsivity, simple tasks, risk seeking, physical activities, self-centered, and temper.
Cyclical Patterns Of Employment, Utilization And Profitability, 2009 University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Cyclical Patterns Of Employment, Utilization And Profitability, Ben Zipperer, Peter Skoot
The interaction between income distribution, accumulation, employment and the utilization of capital is central to macroeconomic models in the `heterodox' tradition. This paper examines the stylized pattern of these variables using US data for the period after 1948. We look at the trends and cycles in individual time series and examine the bivariate cycical patterns among the variables. JEL Categories: E12, E32, O41
Economic Evaluation Of A Prerelease Substance Abuse Treatment Program For Repeat Criminal Offenders, 2009 University of Miami
Economic Evaluation Of A Prerelease Substance Abuse Treatment Program For Repeat Criminal Offenders, Michael T. French, Hai Fang, Ralph Fretz
Michael T. French
Substance use disorders are common conditions among repeat criminal offenders. Without addressing these underlying substance use behaviors, parolees are significantly more likely to recidivate within 1 year of release. New Jersey is one of the first states to actively pursue substance abuse treatment options for inmates who are in the final stages of their sentences. Given the fiscal realities of taxpayer-supported programs, such initiatives must clearly demonstrate economic benefits for sustainability and growth. This article conducted one of the few comprehensive economic evaluations of prerelease substance abuse treatment to determine whether Community Education Centers' programs in New Jersey generated desirable ...

White House Staff, Justin S. Vaughn, José D. Villalobos
José D. Villalobos
The White House Staff provides the bureaucratic framework that makes presidential leadership possible. Even though modern presidents continue to face constraints by the constitutional structure and political reality in successfully straddling the expectations gap that continues to enlarge, the staff presents the president with his best opportunity to anticipate and exploit leadership opportunities in the best case and manage crisis and cope with challenges in the worst. In recent decades, scholarly efforts to analyze the influence and importance of the White House staff has continued apace the institution’s own evolution. In this chapter, we evaluate the state of these ...

The Urgency Of Building Oromo National Consensus, 2009 University of Tennessee - Knoxville
The Urgency Of Building Oromo National Consensus, Asafa Jalata
First, the paper explains how some political achievements without strong organizational and institutional structures have increased political crises in the Oromo national movement. Second, it identifies and explores external and internal factors that have hampered the development of the Oromo national consensus. Third, it suggests what Oromo activists and political organizations should do to overcome their ideological and political weaknesses and political ineptness to develop a national declaration that will be the central guiding principle of the Oromo national movement for human liberation and sovereignty in Oromia and beyond.
Language In Society (Winter 2010 Syllabus), 2009 Stanford University
Language In Society (Winter 2010 Syllabus), Adam Hodges
In this course, we will examine how language and society affect each other. We will place a significant focus on language use in our own society to explore regional and social differences in speech. We will examine the attitudes and ideologies people have about languages, language varieties, and their speakers (e.g. issues of prestige and stigma). We will explore how speakers use language to construct identities and interact with different audiences. And we will examine how language itself often becomes a political issue (e.g. in debates over language and education). The course will use a mixture of lectures ...

Legal Interoperability In Support Of Spatially Enabling Society, 2009 University of Maine - Main
Legal Interoperability In Support Of Spatially Enabling Society, Harlan J. Onsrud
Harlan J Onsrud
Spatial data is critically important for the wellbeing of society. Yet appropriate spatial data is often very difficult to find and, when found, the legal ability to use it is often in question. Lack of an operational web-wide capability allowing users to legally access and use the geospatial data of others without seeking permission on a case-by-case basis remains as an entrenched major impediment to general spatial enablement for all sectors in society. This chapter presents a legal inter-operability vision for offering, acquiring, and using spatial data and proposes an operational environment for gaining much greater legal clarity and efficiency ...
Labor Heterogeneity, Inequality And Institutional Change, 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst
Labor Heterogeneity, Inequality And Institutional Change, Peter Skott
US earnings inequality has increased dramatically since the 1970s, and the prospect of a reversal depends on what caused the trend. The standard explanation emphasizes skill-biased technical change. This paper briefly considers some aggregation issues and then proceeds to outline two alternative perspectives .power biased technical change and the effects of induced mismatch in the labor market .and their implications.
