The analysis focuses on one northern city-Cincinnati, Ohio.The evidence comes from a new longitudinal dataset containing information on individuals linked...Economic outcomes; Residential segregation; Black urban neighborhoods2005
27 Li, MinqiSecular trends, long waves, and the cost of the state: evidence from the long-term movement of the profit rate in the U.S. economyTheorists in the tradition of either Classical Marxism or Keynesianism understand that as capitalism provides an historical space for the development of material forces of production, its economic and social contradictions tend to develop, requiring progressively more complex institutional structure...Marxism; Social structures of accumulation; Neoliberalism2006
28 Jameson, Kenneth P.Has institutionalism won the development debate?Institutionalism has again become central to development thinking, accompanied by an appreciation of the variety and complexity of institutional evolution. The result is not the 'old institutionalism' of Thorstein Veblen and Clarence Ayres or the 'new institutionalism' of the early Douglass North. ...Development; Institutionalism; Markets2006
29 Holzner, Claudio A.; Jameson, Kenneth P.; Maloney, Thomas N.; Abebe, Berhanie; Lund, Matthew; Schaub, KristenEconomic impact of the Mexico-Utah relationshipThis study began during the Summer of 2005 and set out to examine the complexity of the globalized relation between Utah and Mexico, concentrating on broadly defined "economic linkages." It was designed to build upon earlier similar studies done in Arizona and in Texas on those states' relations wit...Economics, Utah; Migration; Immigration; Mexico; Undocumented immigrants2006-03-10
30 Zick, Cathleen D.; Srisukhumbowornchai, SivitheeDoes housework matter anymore? The shifting impact of housework on economic inequalityIn recent years, American women's housework time has declined while American men's housework time has risen. We examine how these changes have affected economic inequality in America. Using time-diary data from the Time Use in Economic and Social Accounts, 1975-76 (N=1,484) and the American Time Use...Demography; Socioeconomic status; Household duties; Female; Male; United States; Economics2006-09-25
31 Li, MinqiChina: hyper-development and environmental crisisChina's spectacular economic growth has been one of the most dramatic developments in the global economy over the past quarter century. Between 1978 and 2004 the Chinese economy expanded at an annual rate of 9.4 per cent. No other large economy has ever grown so rapidly for so long in the economic h...China; Economic growth; Environmental impacts2007
32 Fowles, RichardDeterminants of motor vehicle fatalities using classical specification testing and Bayesian sensitivity methodsThis paper uses classical regression methods along with Bayesian Extreme Bounds Analysis (EBA) to addresses the effect of cell phones on motor vehicle fatality rates so as to examine the potential of net life-taking and life-saving effects. The models adjust for a time trend (YEAR), the maximum b...Motor vehicle fatalities; Motor vehicle statistical studies; Cell phones2008-01-09
33 Maloney, Thomas N.Living standards in black and white: evidence from the heights of Ohio prison inmates, 1829-1913The use of height data to measure living standards is now a well-established method in the economic history literature. Moreover, a number of core findings are widely agreed upon. There are still some populations, places, and times, however, for which anthropometric evidence remains limited. One su...Stature, Inequality, Nineteenth century US race relations2008-07
34 Von Arnim, Rudiger LennartWage policy in an open economy kalecki-kaldor model: a simulation studyThis paper discusses a Post?Keynesian model of income, production, and trade. The one?country, one?sector model features Kaleckian investment demand, Kaldorian productivity and a labor market module based on a wage?price spiral. The model is first presented for a closed economy with exogenous real w...2010
35 Fowles, RichardCell phone effect on motor vehicle fatality rates: a Bayesian and classical econometric evaluationThis paper examines the potential effect of cell phones on motor vehicle fatality rates normalized for other driving related and socioeconomic factors. The model used is nonlinear so as to address both life-taking and life-saving attributes of cell phones. The model is evaluated using classical meth...2010
36 Von Arnim, Rudiger LennartLabor productivity and energy use in a three sector model: an application to EgyptThis paper presents a model of a developing economy with three sectors| industry, agriculture, and energy. Industry and energy are assumed to be demand- constrained, but agriculture supply-constrained. The model highlights (a) structural transformation, through labor transfer from agriculture to in...2010
37 Von Arnim, Rudiger LennartA global model of recovery and rebalancingThis paper presents an investigation of global recovery from the great recession and rebalancing of global external imbalances, using a global model of sixteen countries and composite regions. The model applies to the short run, and only to the real side. Key features are demand-driven output determ...2010-01-01

40 Jameson, Kenneth P.Institutions and development: what a difference geography and time makeHa-Joon Chang, in his article ?Institutions and Economic Development: Theory, Policy, and History?, provides a description and critique of the mainstream view of institutions and development. It applies well to Latin America in the 1980s and 1990s. However, the effort to introduce these Anglo-Americ...2011
41 Jameson, Kenneth P.Measuring the effect of Bi-directional migration remittances on poverty and inequality in NicaraguaThis paper examines the impact of migrants' remittances on poverty and income distribution in Nicaragua. Nicaraguan emigrants are fairly evenly distributed between the United States and Costa Rica. Poorer migrants overwhelmingly migrate to Costa Rica; richer migrants favor the United States. This bi...2011-01-01
42 Von Arnim, Rudiger LennartStructural transformation in China and India: the role of macroeconomic policiesThis paper explores macroeconomic policies that can sustain structural change in China and India. A two-sector open-economy model with endogenous productivity growth, demand driven output and income distribution as an important determinant of economic activity is calibrated to a 2000 SAM for China a...2012-01-01
43 Fowles, RichardUnderstanding the cell phone effect on vehicle fatalities: a Bayesian viewThis article examines the potential effect of various factors on motor vehicle fatality rates using a rich set of panel data and classical regression analysis combined with Bayesian Extreme Bounds Analysis, Bayesian Model Averaging and Stochastic Search Variable Selection procedures. The variables e...2012-01-01
44 Von Arnim, Rudiger LennartRebalancing through expenditure and price changesThis paper puts forth a Neo-Kaleckian open economy model of two countries in order to investigate adjustment of US-China external imbalances. First, a stylized fixed mark-up model is presented, and discussed based on graphical analysis. Second, we present estimates of bilateral income and price elas...2012-12-01
45 Waitzman, Norman J.Connecting the dots and merging meaning: using mixed methods to study primary care delivery transformationObjective: To demonstrate the value of mixed methods in the study of practice transformation and illustrate procedures for connecting methods and for merging findings to enhance the meaning derived..

46 Maloney, Thomas N.Occupation and fertility on the frontier: Evidence from the state of UtahBACKGROUND Most of what we know about fertility decline in the United States comes from aggregate (often state or county level) data sources. It is difficult to identify variation in fertility change across socio-economic classes in such data, although understanding such variation would provide deep...2014-01-01
47 Li, MinqiChinas grain production: a decade of consecutive growth or stagnation?Some progressive writers have argued that while China's agricultural privatization achieved short-term gains, it did so by undermining longterm production facilities such as the infrastructure and public services built in the socialist era.1 Environmental scholars have questioned the sustainability ...2014-01-01
48 Von Arnim, Rudiger LennartRedistribution in a neo-Kaleckian two-country modelWe investigate the interaction between demand-driven growth and income distribution in open economies, by combining expenditure-switching and demand spillover effects in a neo-Kaleckian two country model. First, we specify elasticities of wage share and real exchange rate to the money wage relative ...2014-01-01
