Essentials of applied econometrics by Aaron D Smith( )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Essentials of Applied Econometrics gives students and professionals the tools they need to do econometric analysis in a world in which more data surround us every day and in which econometrics is put to a diversity of uses. Vivid examples and data from a variety of real-world sources are used to teach best practices and state-of-the-art techniques. This book differs from traditional textbooks that assume the only goal of econometrics is to estimate causal effects and that confound sampling theory with causal analysis. It begins with sampling theory - how to use a sample to make inferences about a whole population. Then, in the last two chapters, it addresses causality as a distinct topic. In between, it covers the gambit of topics essential for doing econometrics, including properties of estimators, hypothesis testing, nonlinear relationships, heteroskedasticity, serial correlation, and sampling bias. This book covers essential theory but with an emphasis on the best practices for estimating econometric models. The text is succinct, written for students and professionals interested in continuing their econometric education"--Provided by publisher

The farm labor problem : a global perspective by J. Edward Taylor( )

10 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Farm Labor Problem: A Global Perspective explores the unique character of agricultural labor markets and the implications for food production, farm worker welfare and advocacy, and immigration policy. Agricultural labor markets differ from other labor markets in fundamental ways related to seasonality and uncertainty, and they evolve differently than other labor markets as economies develop. We weave economic analysis with the history of agricultural labor markets using data and real-world events. The farm labor history of California and the United States is particularly rich, so it plays a central role in the book, but the book has a global perspective ensuring its relevance to Europe and high-income Asian countries. The chapters in this book provide readers with the basics for understanding how farm labor markets work (labor in agricultural household models, farm labor supply and demand, spatial market equilibria); farm labor and immigration policy; farm labor organizing; farm employment and rural poverty; unionization and the United Farm Workers movement; the Fair Food Program as a new approach to collective bargaining; the declining immigrant farm labor supply; and what economic development in relatively low-income countries portends for the future of agriculture in the United States and other high-income countries. The book concludes with a chapter called "Robots in the Fields," which extrapolates current trends to a perhaps not-so-distant future. The Farm Labor Problem serves as both a guide to policy makers, farmworker advocates and international development organizations and as a textbook for students of agricultural economics and economics
International migration : prospects and policies in a global market by Douglas S Massey( Book )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study offers a comprehensive, up-to-date survey of global patterns of international migration and the policies employed to manage the flows. It shows that international migration is not rooted in poverty or rapid population growth, but in the expansion and consolidation of global markets. As nations are structurally transformed by their incorporation into global markets, people are displaced from traditional livelihoods and become international migrants. In seeking to work abroad, they do not necessarily move to the closest or richest destination, but to places already connected to their countries of origin socially, economically, and politically. When they move, migrants rely heavily on social networks created by earlier waves of immigrants, and, in recent years, professional migration brokers have become increasingly common. Developing countries generally benefit from international migration because migrant savings and remittances provide foreign earnings to finance balance of payments deficits and make productive investments. Some developing nations have gone so far as to establish programs or ministries dedicated to the export of workers. Developed nations, in contrast, focus more on the social and economic costs of immigrants and seek to reduce their numbers, regulate their characteristics, and limit their access to social services. Over time, receiving nations have gravitated toward a similar set of restrictive policies, yielding undocumented migration as a worldwide phenomenon. Globalization also creates infrastructures of transportation, communication, and social networks to put developed societies within reach. In the latter, ageing populations and segmenting markets create a persistent demand for immigrant workers. All these trends are likely to intensify in the coming years to make immigration policy a key political issue in the twenty-first century. -- Publisher's description
Education, migration, and productivity : an analytic approach and evidence from rural Mexico by J. Edward Taylor( Book )

30 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book challenges the assumption that the major benefits of investment in rural education accrue to traditional agricultural activities, such as staples production. Indeed, rural economies are much more complex than such an assumption would allow and the benefits from education are, therefore, rather dispersed, and vary significantly according to the level of educational attainment achieved. The authors have carried out a survey of rural households in Mexico, taking into account educational levels, not only of the head of household, but also of the other members of the family. Their overriding purpose is to present an approach for analysing education-migration-productivity interactions, to test this approach using real-world data, and to draw relevant conclusions for educational and development policy. The result is an analytical tool of great practical interest for policy makers, as well as for specialists who might wish to extend the technique to other societies and situations
Village economies : the design, estimation, and use of villagewide economic models by J. Edward Taylor( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J. Edward Taylor and Irma Adelman present a general framework for modeling village economies based on computable general-equilibrium techniques, estimate models for villages and a village-town in five different countries, and use these models to conduct a series of comparative experiments. The findings offer explanations for some paradoxical outcomes of exogenous shocks as their influence wends its way through rural economies, and they underline the importance of adopting a local economywide perspective when designing development policies

The new rural poverty : agriculture & immigration in California by Philip L Martin( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immigration is changing the face of rural America, from Florida to Washington and from Maine to California. Migrants arrive, many from Mexico, to fill jobs on farms and in farm-related industries, usually at earnings below the poverty. Leaders of rural industries are adamant that a steady influx of foreign workers is necessary for economic survival. But the integration of these newcomers is uneven: many immigrants achieve some measure of the American dream, but others find persistent poverty, overcrowded housing, and crime. The New Rural Poverty examines the effect of rural immigration on inla
Poverty amid prosperity : immigration and the changing face of rural California by J. Edward Taylor( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the socioeconomic links among farm employment, immigration, and welfare use not only within California's Central Valley, but also along the state's Central Coast and in its southern regions. Using U.S. Census data and information collected from extensive community-level site visits, the authors find that immigration, largely from rural Mexico, is changing the face of rural California, increasing levels of population, poverty, and public service demands. The authors caution that upward mobility among these immigrant workers may be limited and that recent legislative changes are reducing the public resources available to help newcomers adjust, just as the number of immigrants is increasing."--BOOK JACKET

Beyond experiments in development economics : local economy-wide impact evaluation by J. Edward Taylor( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides researchers, students, and practitioners with a methodology to evaluate the impacts of a wide diversity of development projects and policies on local economies. Projects and policies often create spillovers within project areas. LEWIE uses simulation methods to quantify these spillovers. It has become a complement to randomized control trials (RCTs), as governments and donors become interested in documenting impacts beyond the treated, comparing the likely impacts of alternative interventions, and designing complementary interventions to influence program and policy impacts. It is also a tool for impact evaluation where RCTs are not feasible. Chapters 1-4 motivate and present the basics of impact simulation, including how to design a LEWIE model, how to estimate the model, and how to obtain the necessary data. The remaining chapters provide a diversity of interesting real-world applications and extensions of the basic models. The applications include evaluations of the impacts of cash transfers for the poor, ecotourism, global food-price shocks, irrigation projects, migration, and corruption. Each chapter provide readers with the tools they need to conduct their own local economy-wide impact evaluations. All models and data used in this book are available on-line.--

Éducation, migration et productivité : une analyse des zones rurales au Mexique by J. Edward Taylor( )

16 editions published in 1999 in French and English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'investissement dans l'éducation en zone rurale profite-t-il essentiellement aux activités agricoles traditionnelles comme, par exemple, les cultures vivrières? Cet ouvrage montre qu'il n'en est rien. En effet, les économies rurales sont beaucoup plus complexes que ne le laisse supposer une telle hypothèse : les effets bénéfiques de l'éducation se manifestent dans divers domaines, et non dans un seul, et varient considérablement selon le niveau d'instruction atteint. Les auteurs de ce livre ont enquêté auprès de ménages ruraux mexicains en tenant compte non seulement du niveau d'instruction du chef de famille, mais aussi de celui des autres membres de la famille. Leur objectif premier était de formuler une méthode d'analyse des interactions entre éducation, migration et productivité, de tester cette méthode à l'aide de données réelles et d'en tirer des conclusions utiles pour l'élaboration des politiques de l'éducation et du développement. Leurs travaux nous offrent ainsi un outil analytique d'un grand intérêt pratique pour les décideurs et pour les spécialistes qui souhaiteraient utiliser cette méthode dans d'autres contextes

Impacts of policy reforms on labor migration from rural Mexico to the United States by Susan M Richter( )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using new survey data from Mexico, a dynamic econometric model is estimated to test the effect of policy changes on the flow of migrant labor from rural Mexico to the United States and test for differential effects of policy changes on male and female migration. We find that both IRCA and NAFTA reduced the share of rural Mexicans working in the United States. Increased U.S. border enforcement had the opposite effect. The impacts of these policy variables are small compared with those of macroeconomic variables. The influence of policy and macroeconomic variables is small compared with that of migration networks, as reflected in past migration by villagers to the United States. The effects of all of these variables on migration propensities differ, quantitatively and insome cases qualitatively, by gender"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site
Does migration reshape expenditures in rural households? : evidence from Mexico by J. Edward Taylor( )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Migration reshapes rural economies in ways that may go beyond the contribution of migrant remittances to household income. Consumption and investment expenditures by migrant-sending households may transmit some of the impacts of migration to others inside and outside the rural economy, and they also may shape the potential effects of migration within the source household. Numerous studies have attempted to quantify the impact of migrant remittances on expenditures in migrant-sending households following one of two approaches. The first asks how migrant remittances are spent. It has the advantage of being simple but the significant disadvantage of ignoring the fungibility of income from migrant and nonmigrant sources. Remittances almost certainly have indirect effects on expenditures by way of their contribution to households' total budgets. The second uses a regression approach that considers remittances as an explanatory variable, in addition to total income and other controls, in a household expenditure demand system. It has the advantage of enabling one to test whether remittances affect expenditures in ways that are independent of their contribution to total income. But it does not take into account other ways, besides remittances, in which migration may influence expenditure patterns in households with migrants. It also may suffer from econometric bias resulting from the endogeneity of migration and remittance receipts. The same variables may simultaneously affect both remittances and household expenditures, and unless one controls for this, biased estimates may result."--World Bank web site
