Studies in state and local public finance by Harvey S Rosen( )

22 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and held by 1,368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In fiscal year 1981-82, state and local government spending actually exceeded federal nondefense spending. However, past research in public finance has focused on federal spending and policies and paid little attention to the economic problems of state and local governments. Studies in State and Local Public Finance goes far in correcting this omission. Developed from a National Bureau of Economic Research conference on state and local financing, the volume includes papers summarizing and extending recent research as well as commentaries. Covering a wide range of topics, the papers share an empirical orientation and a concern with policy issues. The first two papers look at the role of tax-exempt bonds in local public finance. Their findings suggest that tax policies significantly affect municipal borrowing practices and that financial advantage can be achieved under certain of these practices. Other papers address specific issues related to state and local tax policy: the impact of local taxes on location decisions; efficient road-use charges for trucks; and the relation of income and general sales tax systems over time. Examining issues related to United States federalism, the last paper focuses on the impact of federal grant aid to states. The research and findings these papers report make an important contribution to the study of local public finance and should be of particular interest to policymakers and those involved in private and public financing at the local, state, or federal level
Fiscal federalism : quantitative studies by Harvey S Rosen( )

26 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We often think of fiscal decisions as being made by a single government, but in the United States the reality is that an astounding number of entities have the power to tax and spend. State, local, and federal governments all play crucial roles in the U.S. fiscal system, and the interrelation has been the source of continuing controversy. This fact is the focus of the seven papers and commentaries presented in this volume, the result of a conference sponsored by the NBER. The contributors use various quantitative tools to study policy issues, obtaining results that will interest policymak

The conflict between equilibrium and disequilibrium theories : the case of the U.S. labor market by Richard E Quandt( Book )

15 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and Spanish and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph estimates both disequilibrium and equilibrium models of the U.S. labor market and compares the results and their implications for policy. Because a great deal of work in the U.S. labor market has followed the equilibrium paradigm, this essay devotes a disproportionate amount of time to discussing the problems that arise in formulating and estimating a disequilibrium model. Chapter 1 is an introduction that addresses the policy and methodological issues. Chapter 2 discusses equilibrium and disequilibrium approaches to labor market analysis, with special focus on policy implications. An estimable disequilibrium model of the labor market is specified in Chapter 3, and in Chapter 4 the data are discussed, the estimation procedure is outlined, and results are presented. Chapter 5 specifies and estimates an equilibrium model of the labor market and discusses its implications. Chapter 6 concludes with comparisons between the disequilibrium and equilibrium results and some suggestions for future research. An appendix containing the data and a list of references are included. (Ylb)

Insurance and the utilization of medical services among the self-employed by Craig William Perry( )

22 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has been substantail public policy concern over the relatively low rates of health insurance coverage among the self-employed in the United States. We use data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey conducted in 1996 to analyze how the self-employed and wage-earners differ both with respect to insurance coverage and utilization of a variety of health care services is not as strong as assumed in the policy debate. For a number of medical care services, the self employed have the same rates of utilization of as wage-earners, despite the fact that they are substantially less likely to be insured. And when the self-employed are less likely than wage-earners to utilize a particular medical service, the differences are generally less than one would expect solely on the basis of the difference in insurance coverage rates. The self-employed thus appear to be able to finance access to health care from sources other than insurance. Further, analysis of out-of-pocket expenditures on health care suggests that doing so not lead to substantial reductions in their ability to consume other goods and services. Finally, there is no evidence that children of the self-employed have less access to health care than the children of wage-earners. Hence, the public policy concern over the relative lack of health insurance among the self-employed may be somewhat misplaced
Sales taxes and prices : an empirical analysis by Timothy Besley( )

23 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most fundamental questions in public finance is who bears the burden of taxes -- the incidence of taxation.' Our understanding of incidence from an empirical standpoint is quite meager. Indeed, there seems to be little evidence even in the case that is theoretically the easiest -- partial equilibrium commodity taxes. Are taxes levied on commodities completely shifted into their prices, or does the incidence also fall on firms? How long does the shifting process take? In this paper we employ a unique data source to examine the incidence of sales taxes. The main idea is to take information on the prices of specific commodities in different U.S. cities and to examine the extent to which differences in tax rates and bases are reflected in prices, controlling for other factors (such as costs). We find a surprising variety of shifting patterns. For some commodities, the after-tax price increases by exactly the amount of the tax, a result consistent with the standard competitive model. However, taxes on other commodities are overshifted -- an increase in tax revenue of one dollar per unit increases the price by more than one dollar
Horatio Alger meets the mobility tables by Douglas Holtz-Eakin( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question of how entrepreneurship relates to income mobility is cogent given the current public debate about the sources of income inequality and mobility in United States society. We examine how experience with entrepreneurship has affected an individual's place in the earnings distribution. Our basic tack is to follow individuals' positions in the income distribution over time, and to see how their mobility (or lack thereof) was affected by involvement with entrepreneurship. Our main finding is that for low-income individuals there is some merit to the notion that the self-employed moved ahead in the earnings distribution relative to those who remained wage earners. On the other hand, for those at the upper end of the earnings distribution, those who became self-employed often advanced less in the earnings distribution than their salaried counterparts
Vertical externalities in tax setting : evidence from gasoline and cigarettes by Timothy Besley( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A common feature of federal systems is that tax bases are joint property. Consequently, state and federal tax setting decisions are interdependent. Our aim here is to put forward a rudimentary theoretical analysis of this phenomenon, and to use the theory as a framework for econometrically estimating the magnitude of the responses. We find that when the federal government increases taxes, there is a significant positive response of state taxes. For example, a 10-cent per gallon increase in the federal tax rate on gasoline leads to a 3.2-cent increase in the state tax rate
Following in her footsteps? : women's choices of college majors and faculty gender composition by Brandice J Canes( )

16 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is frequently asserted that a college's female undergraduate enrollment in the sciences and engineering can be increased by raising female representation on the faculties in these areas. Despite the widespread acceptance of this proposition, it does not appear to have been subjected to any kind of serious statistical analysis. In this paper, we assemble panel data from three rather different educational institutions, and use them to examine the relationship between the gender composition of the students in an academic department and the gender composition of its faculty at the time the students were choosing their majors. We find no evidence for the conventional view that an increase in the share of females on a department's faculty leads to an increase in its share of female majors
Estate taxes, life insurance, and small business by Douglas Holtz-Eakin( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One criticism of the estate tax is that it prevents the owners of family businesses from passing their enterprises to their children. The problem is that it may be difficult to pay estate taxes without liquidating the business. A natural question is why individuals with such concerns do not purchase enough life insurance to meet their estate tax liabilities. This paper examines whether and how people use life insurance to deal with the estate tax. We find that, other things being the same, business owners purchase more life insurance than other individuals. However, on the margin, their insurance purchases are less responsive to estate tax considerations and they are less likely to have the wherewithal to meet estate tax liabilities out of liquid assets plus insurance
The way we were (and are) : changes in public finance and its textbooks by Harvey S Rosen( )

13 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper uses a comparison of a contemporary Public Finance textbook with one written in the 1940s as a vehicle for assessing the changes in the field since the beginning of the National Tax Journal 50 years ago. The comparison indicates that there have been major changes in the field. From a methodological point of view, the most important change is the embrace of microeconomic theory as the framework for analyzing both positive and normative issues. In addition, the incorporation of econometrics has dramatically affected the field. With respect to topical coverage, research in Public Finance has changed along with the items on the public policy agenda, and the results of this new research have made their way into contemporary textbooks. But there is continuity as well as change: some topics and their treatments have metamorphosed very little in the last half century
Health insurance and the supply of entrepreneurs by Douglas Holtz-Eakin( )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some commentators have suggested that the absence of portable health insurance impedes people from leaving their jobs to start new firms. We investigate this belief by comparing wage-earners who become self-employed during a given period of time with their counterparts who do not. By examining the impact of variables relating to the health insurance and health status of these workers and their families, we can infer whether the lack of health insurance portability affects the probability that they become self-employed. The evidence does not support the conjecture that the current health insurance system affects the propensity to become self-employed. Hence, whatever its other merits, there is no reason to believe that the introduction of universal health insurance would significantly enhance entrepreneurial activity
Financial aid packages and college enrollment decisions : an econometric case study by David M Linsenmeier( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study the effects of a change in financial aid policy introduced by a Northeastern university in 1998. Prior to that time, the university's financial aid packages for low-income students consisted of grants, loans, and campus jobs. After the change, the entire loan portion of the package for low-income students was replaced with grants. We find the program increased the likelihood of matriculation by low-income students by about 3 percentage points, although the effect is not statistically significant. The effect among low-income minority students was between 8 and 10 percentage points and statistically significant at the 10 percent level
The self-employed are less likely to have health insurance than wage-earners : so what? by Craig William Perry( )

16 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: There is considerable public policy concern over the relatively low rates of health insurance coverage among the self-employed in the United States. Presumably, the reason for the concern is that their low rates of insurance lead to worse health outcomes. We use data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey conducted in 1996 to analyze how the self-employed and wage-earners differ with respect to insurance coverage and health status. Using a variety of ways to measure health status, we find that the relative lack of health insurance among the self-employed does not affect their health. For virtually every subjective and objective measure of health status, the self-employed and wage earners are statistically indistinguishable from each other. Further, we present some evidence that this phenomenon is not due to the fact that individuals who select into self-employment are healthier than wage-earners, ceteris paribus. Thus, the public policy concern with the relative lack of health insurance among the self-employed may be somewhat misplaced
