How Robust Is Undominated Nash Implementation?, Takashi KUNIMOTO 2010 Singapore Management University

How Robust Is Undominated Nash Implementation?, Takashi Kunimoto

Research Collection School Of Economics

Palfrey and Srivastava (1991) show that almost any social choice correspondence(SCC) is implemented in undominated Nash equilibrium, a refinement of Nash equilibrium. Byrequiring solution concepts to have closed graph in the limit of complete information, Chung andEly (2003) investigate the robustness of undominated Nash implementation. Their robustnesstest concludes that when preferences are strict (or more generally, hedonic), only monotonic SCCscan be implemented in the closure of the undominated Nash (equilibrium) correspondence.This paper re-examines this robustness test. I show that almost any SCC is implementedin the closure of the undominated Nash correspondence, provided that the planner is certainthat there ...


Testing Monotonicity In Unobservables With Panel Data, Liangjun SU, Stefan HODERLEIN, Halbert WHITE 2010 Singapore Management University

Testing Monotonicity In Unobservables With Panel Data, Liangjun Su, Stefan Hoderlein, Halbert White

Research Collection School Of Economics

Monotonicity in a scalar unobservable is a crucial identifying assumption for an important class of nonparametric structural models accommodating unobserved heterogeneity, as in, for example, Altonji and Matzkin (2005) and Imbens and Newey (2009). Tests for this monotonicity have previously been unavailable. Here we propose and analyze tests for scalar monotonicity using panel data for structures with and without time-varying unobservables, either partially or fully nonseparable between observables and unobservables. As it turns out, our tests also have power against relevant failures of exogeneity. Our nonparametric tests are computationally straightforward, have well behaved limiting distributions under the null, are consistent ...


Evaluating Microfossil Content Of Dental Calculus From Brazilian Sambaquis, Verônica Wesolowski, Sheila Maria Ferraz Mendonça de Souza, Karl Reinhard, Gregório Ceccantini 2010 Escola Nacional de Saúde Pública Sérgio Arouca/Fiocruz

Evaluating Microfossil Content Of Dental Calculus From Brazilian Sambaquis, Verônica Wesolowski, Sheila Maria Ferraz Mendonça De Souza, Karl Reinhard, Gregório Ceccantini

Karl Reinhard Papers/Publications

To date, limited numbers of dental calculus samples have been analyzed by researchers in diverse parts of the world. The combined analyses of these have provided some general guidelines for the analysis of calculus that is non-destructive to archaeological teeth. There is still a need for a quantitative study of large numbers of calculus samples to establish protocols, assess the level of contamination, evaluate the quantity of microfossils in dental calculus, and to compare analysis results with the literature concerning the biology of calculus formation. We analyzed dental calculus from 53 teeth from four Brazilian sambaquis. Sambaquis are the shellmounds ...

The main objectives of this study were (a) to elucidate the psychological symptoms and support needs of parents of child sexual abuse victims as they present to group treatment, (b) to examine changes in psychological symptoms and support needs and their relationship with child functioning over the course of a parallel group treatment, and (c) to examine the impact of these factors on completion of group treatment. Participants included ...


Sem. Bot. At The University Of Nebraska, Richard E. Voeltz 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Sem. Bot. At The University Of Nebraska, Richard E. Voeltz

White Papers: University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries

The Sem. Bot. (Seminarium Botanicum or Botanical Seminar) began in 1886 as an association of seven students (two Juniors, two Sophomores, and three Freshmen) at the University of Nebraska. They collected plants, campaigned against the “Lits and Philistines” (literary and classical studies), and controlled the Science Club and several debating societies. “Show me a Lit” was their rallying cry. Charles Bessey was a force in organizing and developing the Sem. Bot.

Human Capital, Education, And Entrepreneurs: Evidence From The Yangtze River Delta, Zhining Hu, Jianghuai Zheng, Jialing Wang 2010 Gettysburg College

Human Capital, Education, And Entrepreneurs: Evidence From The Yangtze River Delta, Zhining Hu, Jianghuai Zheng, Jialing Wang

Economics Faculty Publications

This paper seeks to examine the relationship between education demand and entrepreneurs in the process of enhancing the growth of human capital in China. We develop a theoretical model that incorporates the important roles played by human capital, education and entrepreneurs. Then, we derive an immigration condition under which the demand for education depends on the existence of entrepreneurs. Finally, we test whether this condition holds true in China, using a panel data set from the Yangtze River Delta which is considered a key barometer of Chinese economy. The empirical results reveal a significant positive relationship between entrepreneurs and education ...


Employer Strategies And Wages In New Service Activities: A Comparison Of Coordinated And Liberal Market Economies, Rosemary Batt, Hiroatsu Nohara, Hyunji Kwon 2010 Cornell University

Employer Strategies And Wages In New Service Activities: A Comparison Of Coordinated And Liberal Market Economies, Rosemary Batt, Hiroatsu Nohara, Hyunji Kwon

Articles and Chapters

Using survey data for call centre establishments in eight countries, we examine the relationship between wages and human resource practices. High-involvement work design and the use of performance-based pay are significantly positively related to wages, whereas intensive use of performance monitoring is negatively associated with wages. These relationships are larger among liberal economies compared with coordinated ones, but individual country differences are large and, in many cases, do not conform to expectations regarding institutional differences between liberal and coordinated market economies. The exception is Denmark.

Robert Clive And Imperial Modernity, Nigel Joseph 2010 The University of Western Ontario

Robert Clive And Imperial Modernity, Nigel Joseph

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "Robert Clive and Imperial Modernity" Nigel Joseph analyzes the work of Robert Clive by postulating the questions of why Clive would be emblematic of the bleak modernity of Tocqueville, Weber, and Foucault? Rapacious yet docile, personally ambitious yet capable of curbing ambition in others, Clive seems to be an anomalous figure. Joseph posits that Clive's career is a metaphor for both the trajectory of the imperial state and for the imperial subject. In order to retain his Indian-derived wealth, Clive is forced into a series of paradoxical postures: beginning as the archetypal private marauder, he transforms ...


Modernizing The Colonial Labor Subject In India, Valerian DeSousa 2010 West Chester University

Modernizing The Colonial Labor Subject In India, Valerian Desousa

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "Modernizing the Colonial Labor Subject in India" Valerian DeSousa discusses how the colonial project in India sought to counter the labor movement's evolving anti-colonial consciousness through law, the primary signifier of British dominance. DeSousa argues that colonial labor law was an instrument of "governmentality," a way of deploying the authority of the state, both in India and in Africa where the law encoded meanings of property and subjectivity. In India, labor law was the means to "reconstruct" the "traditional" worker and to constitute a "modern" and "efficient" labor subject to fit into the new industrial vision ...


Aesthetics, Nationalism, And The Image Of Woman In Modern Indian Art, Kedar Vishwanathan 2010 University of Sydney

Aesthetics, Nationalism, And The Image Of Woman In Modern Indian Art, Kedar Vishwanathan

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In his article "Aesthetics, Nationalism, and the Image of Woman in Modern Indian Art" Kedar Vishwanathan discusses how developments in visual culture impacted India's configuration as nation. Between 1880-1945 in Bombay (Mumbai) and Calcutta (Kolkata) a burgeoning visual culture developed in service of anti-colonial nationalism. Used as a method to imagine a nation free of colonial rule, in particular images of women proliferated in private and public spaces. Crucial to this development was the reformulations of modernity based on an ambivalent combination of British and Indian vernacular art. Vishwanathan focuses on how the female was appropriated for the cause ...


The Anti-Colonial Revolutionary In Contemporary Bollywood Cinema, Vidhu Aggarwal 2010 Rollins College

The Anti-Colonial Revolutionary In Contemporary Bollywood Cinema, Vidhu Aggarwal

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article "The Anti-Colonial Revolutionary in Contemporary Bollywood Cinema" Vidhu Aggarwal discusses several contemporary films including Rakesh Omprakash Mehra's Rang de Basanti with focus on the figure of the revolutionary hero. The Bollywood film is a cultural form that combines several aesthetic styles, from within India and from the outside. With its formal heterogeneity and as a product of one of India's largest cities, Mumbai Bollywood has had an ongoing fascination with "arrival," that is, with India's status as a contemporary nation-state. While some Bollywood films seem to celebrate fantasy scenarios of India's arrival on ...


Philosophy Of Modernity And Development In Jamaica, Novella Z. Keith, Nelson W. Keith 2010 Temple University

Philosophy Of Modernity And Development In Jamaica, Novella Z. Keith, Nelson W. Keith

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In their article "Philosophy of Modernity and Development in Jamaica" Novella Z. Keith and Nelson W. Keith postulate that a combined philosophico-practical inquiry is necessary to reduce the systemic asymmetries found in the North-South divide and to promote global interdependence. Proceeding from a deconstruction of European-inflected modernity, Keith and Keith sketch an alternative epistemology of uncertainty and unknowability and illustrate aspects of these epistemologies in theories and practices of modernization and its counter movements, dependency, and underdevelopment while also using them to discuss current practices of an NGO they created, Edu-Tourism , to bridge global divides as experienced in Jamaica. In ...


Nordestina Modernity In The Novels Of Freitas, Queiroz, And Lispector, Fernanda Patricia Fuentes Muñoz 2010 University of Brasília

Nordestina Modernity In The Novels Of Freitas, Queiroz, And Lispector, Fernanda Patricia Fuentes Muñoz

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article "Nordestina Modernity in the Novels of Freitas, Queiroz, and Lispector" Fernanda Patricia Fuentes Muñoz discusses aspects of the Nordeste — the northeastern region of Brazil — in Emília de Freitas's A Rainha do Ignoto (1899), Rachel de Queiroz's O Quinze (1930), and Clarice Lispector's A Hora da Estrela (1977; The Hour of the Star, 1992, Trans. Giovanni Pontiero). The region has traditionally been seen as located on the margins of modernity and as a site of underdevelopment in the Brazilian imaginary in opposition to the affluent Southeastern region. The construction of this binary opposition suggests a ...


New Modernity, Transnational Women, And Spanish Cinema, Maria Van Liew 2010 West Chester University

New Modernity, Transnational Women, And Spanish Cinema, Maria Van Liew

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In her article "New Modernity, Transnational Women, and Spanish Cinema" Maria Van Liew discusses aspects of migration to Spain in the context of histories of colonialism, racism, and sexism as represented in Spanish filmic narration. The flow of human traffic defies two aspects of European modernity: Non-linear time is reflected in the cycle of arrival/return/return as the nation relies on liminal subjects to determine its status as a progressive "First World" nation and in the effort to align representations of these cultural encounters accordingly, illusions of autochthonous national identity formations become dependent on practices of inclusion and, at ...
