Four generations of norteños : new research from the cradle of Mexican migration( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on decades of fieldwork in a high-emigration town in central Mexico, as well as nearly a thousand recent interviews, the authors investigate who migrates, how people-smuggling operates, whether border enforcement affects decisions to migrate, and migration's impact on family, health, and hometown economy. Their work sheds important new light on debates central to international migration studies. -- Back cover
Estimating the market-perceived monetary policy rule by James D Hamilton( )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We introduce a novel method for estimating a monetary policy rule using macroeconomic news. We estimate directly the policy rule agents use to form their expectations by linking news' effects on forecasts of both economic conditions and monetary policy. Evidence between 1994 and 2007 indicates that the market-perceived Federal Reserve policy rule changed: the output response vanished, and the inflation response path became more gradual but larger in long-run magnitude. These response coefficient estimates are robust to measurement and theoretical issues with both potential output and the inflation target
Estimates of the cyclical inflow of undocumented migrants to the United States by Scott C Borger( )

Essays on migration and monetary policy by Scott Charles Borger( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation is comprised of three chapters, each a free-standing paper. The first chapter estimates the inflow of undocumented migrants to the United States. I find that the estimates are consistent with the previous estimates in the literature and the methodology provides a longer time series of undocumented migrants inflows than currently exists in the literature. The inflows of undocumented migrants are correlated with the business cycle in both the United States and Mexico. The second chapter models the decision to migrate over different costs structures and finds that both the lower- and upper-income shifted inward as a result of the increased smuggling fees over the previous 15 years. The model is estimated in low-cost and high-cost periods of migration to determine whether the decision to migrant has changed for different income groups. The third chapter estimates the market-perceived monetary policy rule by using macroeconomic announcements to forecast changes in market expectations. We find evidence that between 1994 and 2007 the market-perceived Federal Reserve policy rule changed: the inflation response became more hawkish, and the output response vanished
Migración desde la Mixteca : una comunidad transnacional en Oaxaca y California( Book )

Migration from the Mexican Mixteca : a transnational community in Oaxaca and California( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides a vivid portrait of a transnational migrant community anchored in both the remote Mixteca region of Oaxaca and the San Diego metropolitan area. Drawing on surveys and interviews with migrants and potential migrants conducted by a binational research team in 2007-2008, the contributors show how the Oaxaca-based and the California-based natives of the town of San Miguel Tlacotepec have built parallel communities separated by an increasingly fortified international border. Their findings shed important new light on a range of vital issues in US immigration policy, including the efficacy and impact of border enforcement, how undocumented status affects health and education outcomes, and how modern telecommunications are shaping transborder migrant networks."--Book cover
