Gambling in America : costs and benefits by Earl L Grinols( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gambling in America carefully breaks new ground by developing analytical tools to assess the benefits and costs of the economic and social changes introduced by casino gambling in monetary terms, linking them to individual households' utility and well-being. Since casinos are associated with unintended and often negative economic consequences, these factors are incorporated into the discussion. The book also shows how amenity benefits - for casinos, the benefit to consumers of closer proximity - enter the evaluation. Other topics include agent incentives and public decision making, conceptual clarifications about economic development, cost-benefit analysis, and net export multiplier models. Professor Grinols finds that, in considering all relevant factors, the social costs of casino gambling outweigh their social benefits

Stochastic equilibrium and exchange rate determination in a small open economy with risk averse optimizing agents by Earl L Grinols( Book )

10 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper constructs a stochastic general equilibrium model of a small open economy consisting of risk averse optimizing agents. The stochastic processes describing the rate of monetary growth, government expenditure, private production, and the foreign price level are taken to be exogenous, determining all asset risks and returns, and the equilibrium stochastic processes describing the domestic inflation rate and the exchange rate. The model is used to examine a number of issues. These include: (i) the effects of the means and variances of policy shocks on the equilibrium; (ii) the determinants of the foreign exchange risk premium; (iii) the relationship between net export instability and economic growth

The Arc Models by Mike Fulmer( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Arc Models are a set of three-dimensional, dynamic CGI representations of the primary pedagogical models of international trade theory. By characterizing economies according to their manufacturing, service, and agricultural/natural resource sectors, the Arc Models present a novel approach to teaching trade theory by either focusing in on a single economy or altering the scale of observation to an economic grouping of world economies. The Arc Models are a collection of true, dynamic models in that they have the ability to capture the inter-temporal transitions between static equilibria using 3D animation. The diagrams and models that have been treated include: market supply and demand, the Ricardian model of comparative advantage, world production in the Ricardian model, the Ricardian fixed factor model, the Ricardian continuum of goods model, offer curves; the standard trade model, the Heckscher-Ohlin model including Findlay-Grubert diagrams, the 3-Factor model, and the specific-factors model

The economics of parallel markets for foreign exchange and illegal trade : focus on Tanzania by Richard Elias Mshomba( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis is divided into six chapters. Chapter 1 discusses incentives for smuggling and chapter 2 presents the Tanzanian institutional setting. Chapter 3 presents a smuggling model which links the smuggling of goods with the parallel markets for foreign exchange. We describe an economy with two regions, one accessible to smuggling and the other not. The economy produces three goods, a pure export crop, an import good, and a non-traded good. There are three factors of production: labor, which is mobile, and capital and land, which are sector- and region-specific. Our smuggling model explicitly shows price disparity can occur in the region with smuggling, even when smuggling occurs solely through unofficial channels. Our model also shows smuggling causes the traded goods to have different prices in the two regions. Chapter 4 estimates the quantity of coffee smuggled from northern Tanzania into Kenya. Our results suggest that about 12 percent of the arabica coffee (or an annual average of 3800 metric tons) produced in northern Tanzania between 1969 and 1985 was smuggled into Kenya. The annual average value of the estimated volume of coffee smuggled is about 8 million dollars. Chapter 5 places the smuggling model in a computable general equilibrium framework. The framework is used to analyze the impact of changes in trade taxes on inter-regional migration of labor and the magnitude of smuggling. Chapter 6 uses the general equilibrium framework to show how decreases in trade taxes increase economic welfare in both regions. This chapter also considers the policy of simultaneously giving producers of export crops farm input subsidies and taxing their exports. The discussion questions the logic of this policy where the government wants to reduce smuggling. It also challenges the notion that the so-called farm input subsidies are actually subsidies to farmers and raises the question whether they are not, instead, disguised subsidies from farmers to producers of inputs
