Taxing choice : the predatory politics of fiscal discrimination ( Book )
5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Taxing behavior deemed "politically incorrect" has long been a convenient way for politicians to fund programs benefiting special interest groups, to the public's disadvantage. Government policy toward various foods, drugs, tobacco and alcohol, for example, has been locked into a regulatory cycle of tax and taboo. And the products subjected to excise and other "selective" taxation have varied from soft drinks, fishing gear, and margarine to airline tickets, telephone calls, and gasoline

The Oxford handbook of managerial economics ( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La 4e de couverture indique : " The Oxford Handbook of Managerial Economics, the first of its kind, aims to provide researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and teachers with summaries of the most up-to-date research in the field of managerial economics. Edited by the coauthors of two managerial economics textbooks, this volume consists of 25 chapters contributed by leading scholars and business consultants from around the globe, drawing on the literature of economics, finance, industrial organization, marketing, behavioral economics, game theory, and auction theory. The Handbook summarizes cutting-edge approaches to the analysis of the decision-making challenges faced by the managers of for-profit and not-for-profit enterprises. The problems addressed range from cost estimation, product development and promotion, optimal pricing strategies for network industries, and make-or-buy decisions to organizational design, performance pay, corporate governance, strategies for multinational corporations, and the social responsibilities of business. Each of the contributed chapters also identifies the problems that are yet to be solved and thus points the way toward topics for future research. Managerial economics has moved far beyond simply applying neoclassical microeconomic theory to the actual world of practical business decision-making. By illustrating how disciplines other than economics can fruitfully be brought to bear in helping to analyze and to understand the incentives and constraints under which business managers operate, the Handbook fills in the gaps between theory and practice. Sometimes technical, but always reader-friendly, no one with an interest in the modern world of business or public policies can afford to ignore the analyses and the important lessons taught in this Handbook"

Supply rate and equilibrium inventory of Air Force enlisted personnel : a simultaneous model of the accession and retention markets incorporating force level constraints by Arthur DeVany ( Book )
4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The objective of this research is to develop and test a general model of the Air Force manpower market. Previous studies of manpower supply have had mixed results, some even indicating that enlistments are negatively related to the Air Force wage. This study indicates that previous work failed to account for the simultaneous determination of enlistments and retentions and so has misinterpreted their regressions as supply equations when they are, in reality, reduced from equations resulting from the joint interaction of Air Force demand and enlistment supply activity. A stochastic process model is used to represent the Air Force manpower market. The variables which determine the levels of the steady state manpower inventory, personnel turnover and new enlistment flows are the mandated force level requirement, Air Force and civilian wages, the unemployment rate and the perceived civilian returns to Air Force provided training. Because both the enlistment rate as well as the planned duration of service are treated in the model it is possible to trace the impact of changes in the determining variables upon retention and enlistments. The empirical work rejects the standard regression 'supply' approach and supports the simultaneous demand and supply approach developed in the study
Determinants of Case Growth in Federal District Courts in the United States, 1904-2002 by William F Shughart ( )
2 editions published in 2004 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study analyzed the determinants of the explosion in the caseload of the United States federal district courts that commenced in 1960. First, the study sought to provide forecasts of future demands on the federal courts while reducing forecasting errors by taking account of the time series properties of the case data. The researchers constructed a comprehensive dataset based on annual aggregated civil and criminal case volumes of individual federal district courts spanning the period 1904-1998, for a total of 95 yearly observations. Secondly, the study specified and estimated multivariate econometric models of the determinants of civil case filings over time and across geographic space using panel data techniques. These empirical models were run on three alternative datasets consisting of observations on statewide, districtwide, and circuitwide United States civil, private civil, and total civil cases per capita, over the period 1960 to 1998. The empirical models included standard socioeconomic variables, such as income, population density, and race, along with variables that controlled for fixed effects associated with the courts' geographic location. The study also addressed the pressing issue of allocating judgeships across circuits and districts. Variables include total civil and criminal cases, percentage of minority population, unemployment rate, percentage of drug and immigration cases, annual unweighted and weighted total case filings per judge, and annual civil and criminal case filings per judge....
