How Longer Work Lives Ease The Crunch Of Population Aging, Nicole Maestas, Julie M. Zissimopoulos 2009 Rand Corporation

How Longer Work Lives Ease The Crunch Of Population Aging, Nicole Maestas, Julie M. Zissimopoulos

Nicole Maestas

[Formerly Work at Older Ages: The Shape of Change]

Population aging is not a looming crisis of the future -- it is already here. Economic challenges arise when the increase in people surviving to old age and the decline in the number of young people alive to support them cause the growth in society's consumption needs to outpace growth in its productive capacity. The ultimate impact of population aging on our standard of living in the future depends a great deal on how long people choose to work before they retire from the labor force. Here, there is reason for ...

Symbolic Or Substantive Policy? Measuring The Extent Of Local Commitment To Climate Protection, Rachel M. Krause 2009 University of Texas at El Paso

Symbolic Or Substantive Policy? Measuring The Extent Of Local Commitment To Climate Protection, Rachel M. Krause

Rachel M. Krause

Over 1,000 U.S. municipalities have formally committed to reduce their local greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through participation in one of several climate protection networks. This has attracted the attention of researchers interested in theories of free-riding and local political decision making who question why municipalities become engaged in this global effort. However, whereas joining a climate protection network or adopting an emissions reduction goal are relatively low cost acts, the implementation of such policies entails higher costs. This raises legitimate questions about the extent and type of follow-through made on municipal climate protection commitments. This paper begins to ...

Home Country Farewell: The Withering Of Immigrants' "Transnational" Ties, Roger D. Waldinger 2009 University of California, Los Angeles

Home Country Farewell: The Withering Of Immigrants' "Transnational" Ties, Roger D. Waldinger

Roger D Waldinger

This paper seeks to explore the importance of home country versus sending country comparing immigrants who moved to the United States as adults with immigrant offspring born abroad, but raised in the United States, the “1.5 generation”. Makes use of the public use data sets from four, large-scale surveys, the paper finds that home country connectedness is limited and that most immigrants view the United States as home. However, the 1.5ers have put down deeper roots and have steadily cut back their involvements in and ties to the countries where they were born. While we still know too ...


Managing Medical Bills On The Brink Of Bankruptcy, Melissa B. Jacoby, Mirya Holman 2009 University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Managing Medical Bills On The Brink Of Bankruptcy, Melissa B. Jacoby, Mirya Holman

Melissa B. Jacoby

This paper presents original empirical evidence on financial interactions between medical providers and their patients who go bankrupt. We use a nationally representative sample of people who filed for bankruptcy in 2007 to compare two popular but hotly contested methods of measuring medical burden. By applying both methods to the same filers, we find that nearly four out of five respondents had some financial obligation for medical care not covered by insurance in the two years prior to filing as measured by the survey method. The court record method paints a different picture, with only half of the cases containing ...

A Professionalized Society: Our Real Future, Melvyn L. Fein 2009 Kennesaw State University

A Professionalized Society: Our Real Future, Melvyn L. Fein

Melvyn L. Fein

Liberals and conservatives are both wrong. We are not moving toward the communal utopia liberals favor. Nor are we headed toward the theocratic utopia many conservatives prefer. To the contrary, thanks to the fact that we have become the first primarily middle class society in the history of the world, we are lurching toward a professionalized society. More of us than ever must acquire a self-motivated expertise in what we do. Whether on the job, in politics, within our marriages, or when raising our children, we must know what we are doing and be personally committed to doing it well ...


Everyday Conflict And Daily Stressors: Coping Responses Of Black Women, J. Camille Hall 2009 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Everyday Conflict And Daily Stressors: Coping Responses Of Black Women, J. Camille Hall

J. Camille Hall, PhD., LCSW

The purpose of this study was to explore how Black women cope with the impact of daily stressors in their lives. To understand stress and coping among Black women, it was necessary to explore the interlocking effects of race, gender, and social class on these stressors and their effects on the women’s ability to cope with the consequences for their health and emotional and psychological well-being. An exploratory design with grounded theory methods was used to develop a midrange theory about stress and coping among Black women on the basis of the women’s experience with sociocultural factors, namely ...


A Taste For Greeting Cards: Distinction Within A Denigrated Cultural Form, Emily West 2009 University of Massachusetts Amherst

A Taste For Greeting Cards: Distinction Within A Denigrated Cultural Form, Emily West

Emily E. West

Greeting cards are a denigrated product category in the United States, and yet consumers use them at high rates across taste formations. Consumers with relatively high cultural capital place a premium on originality in their self-expression, hence greeting cards present a consumption problem because they are a mode of expressing the self through mass-produced means. Based on interviews with 51 people, I show that consumers with higher cultural capital are more likely to prioritize card design over sentiment; select smaller, simpler designs and sentiments; prefer cards that are handmade, look handmade, or remind them of fine art; and are more ...


Person-Organization Incongruence As A Predictor Of Right-Wing Authoritarianism, Social Dominance Orientation, And Heterosexism, Kristie L. Seelman, N. E. Walls 2009 Georgia State University

Person-Organization Incongruence As A Predictor Of Right-Wing Authoritarianism, Social Dominance Orientation, And Heterosexism, Kristie L. Seelman, N. E. Walls

Kristie L Seelman

Using a sample of 124 incoming social work graduate students, we examined whether levels of perceived incongruence with social work values and the perceived culture of a graduate social work program significantly correlate with social psychological constructs. The social psychological constructs are associated with maintenance and support for social stratification in general and with prejudicial attitudes based on sexual orientation more specifically. Results suggest that higher levels of cultural incongruence are associated with significantly higher levels of right-wing authoritarianism, social dominance orientation, hostile heterosexism, aversive heterosexism, and paternalistic heterosexism. Nonsignificant results emerged for amnestic heterosexism and positive stereotypic heterosexism. Implications ...
