Product liability entering the twenty-first century : the U.S. perspective by Michael J Moore( )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are liability "crises" an inevitable part of the modern industrial landscape' Does the inherent nature of the insurance industry promote recurring liability crises' What have been the effects of the liability reforms of the 1990s' Should lawyers be given de facto regulatory authority' This report provides perspective on these and other key issues concerning the law and economics of products liability. The authors begins with a brief description of the evolution of products liability doctrine in the U.S., up to the point of the liability crisis of the late 1980s. They discuss the economic implications of product risk for both consumers and producers, offer economic hypothesis on the implications of the increased scope of liability and subsequent reforms, and provide an update of trends in litigation and liability law. The book ends with a discussion of pending legislation and prospects for further improvements. Moore and Viscusi make the point that effective liability policy calls for a balancing of the incentives for improved public safety on one hand, and the benefits of new and existing products on the other

Habit and heterogeneity in the youthful demand for alcohol by Michael J Moore( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: Observed patterns of youthful drinking indicate substantial persistence. This paper analyzes how much of that persistence reflects the actual development of a habit, and how much is due to unobserved aspects of the individual and the environment. The role of restrictions on alcohol availability, both in the current period and in adolescence, is also explored. We find that much of the observed persistence represents habit formation, and not unobserved characteristics. Consequently, restrictions on availability, particularly at an early age, alter subsequent patterns of alcohol consumption and abuse
Alcohol by Philip J Cook( Book )

4 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: Excess drinking is associated with lost productivity, accidents, disability, early death, crime, neglect of family responsibilities, and personality deterioration. These and related concerns have justified special restrictions on alcoholic-beverage commerce and consumption. The nature and extent of government involvement in this arena vary widely over time and place, and are often controversial. Economists have contributed to the evaluation of alcohol policy through empirical work on the effects of alcohol-control measures on consumption and its consequences. Economics has also provided an accounting framework for defining and comparing costs and benefits of interventions, including excise taxes. Outside of the policy arena, economists have analyzed alcohol consumption in the context of stretching the standard model of consumer choice to include intertemporal effects and social influence. Nonetheless, perhaps the most important contribution by economists has been the repeated demonstration that there is nothing unusual about alcohol in at least one essential respect: consumers drink less ethanol (and have fewer alcohol-related problems) when alcohol-beverage prices are increased. Important econometric challenges remain, including the search for a satisfactory resolution to the conflicting results on the effect of price changes on consumption by consumers who tend to drunk heavily. There are also unresolved puzzles about the relationship between drinking and productivity; even after controlling for a variety of other characteristics, drinkers tend to have higher earnings than abstainers, and women's earnings (but not men's) tend to increase with alcohol consumption
An information approach to international currencies by Richard K Lyons( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper addresses currency competition from an information perspective. Transactions in traditional models do not convey information, so transaction costs -- the driver of competition outcomes -- are driven by market size. In our model transactions do convey information (consistent with recent empirical findings). Several important departures arise. First, adding the information dimension resolves the traditional indeterminacy of currency trade patterns (by mitigating the concentrating force of market-size economies). Second, whether transactions are executed directly or through a vehicle actually affects prices (because these trading methods do not in general reveal the same information). Third, our model provides a new rationale for why some currency pairs never trade directly (information is not sufficiently symmetric to support trading). Fourth, our model formalizes the arbitrage process and shows that arbitrage transaction quantities and price levels are jointly determined. Empirically, the paper provides a first integrated analysis of transactions in a triangle of markets: /$, $/Euro, and /Euro. Data for the full triangle permits comparison of direct, indirect and arbitrage transactions, for each pair. The information model predicts that transactions should affect prices across markets (e.g., flow in the /$ market should convey information relevant to $/Euro and /Euro prices), which is borne out
BHP Billiton : mining potash by Thomas N Hubbard( )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

BHP, an Australian mining company, threatens to enter the potash mining industry through a hostile takeover of the Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan. Complicating matters is the fact that the Canadian potash industry has operated as a legal cartel in which the provincial government has a stake. This case enables students to assess BHP's strategy in terms of value creation and value capture, how it relates to its existing investments in the industry, and the risks and rewards of alternatives to BHP's strategy

Compensation mechanisms for job risks : wages, workers' compensation, and product liability by Michael J Moore( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this major new work, Michael J. Moore and W. Kip Viscusi explore the question, "How are workers compensated for exposing themselves to the risk of physical injury while on the job?" The authors detail the diverse nature of labor market responses to job risks and the important role played by compensation-for-risk mechanisms. Following an overview of the literature, they present a number of unprecedented results. Comprehensive and systematic discussions of issues such as wage-risk tradeoffs, the effects of workers' compensation on wages and risk, the role of unions, and the role of product liability suits in job-related injuries make the volume an essential work for all those interested in risk policy and workplace safety. Among the major results presented for the first time are the first estimates of the value of life derived from recently released occupational fatality risk data from the National Traumatic Occupational Fatality Survey. From these same data the authors also demonstrate that higher workers' compensation benefit levels significantly reduce fatalities on the job--a finding that challenges virtually every other treatment of this topic.

Monetary policy in stage two of EMU by Michael J Moore( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Stage Two of European Monetary Union (EMU) in Europe develops, a major issue is the coordination of monetary policies. Member countries of the European Monetary System (EMS) will have to align their domestic source moneys. This paper argues that for this purpose, the Treasury and central bank in each country needs to be consolidated. The implications of this are that external financing of budget deficits becomes part of domestic money creation. This concept is set in a steady-state version of the Girton-Roper framework for the monetary approach to the balance of payments. The theory is tested for a number of European countries using the Johansen procedure

Covered purchasing power parity, ex ante PPP and risk aversion by Michael J Moore( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The standard expectations augmented theory of ex-ante purchasing power parity (PPP), which was first developed by Roll, assumes that agents are risk neutral. A Covered Purchasing Power Condition is developed which holds for the general case of risk aversion. A risk-augmented form of ex-ante PPP is then derived using a Lucas-style asset pricing framework. From this I conclude that real exchange rates may not possess the martingale property though the analysis clarifies the circumstances under which this property does hold.A consumption-based orthogonality condition is tested for, using 1970s and 1980s data for the seven main industrial countries. An interesting by-product of the study is that it provides us with a useful example of unit root testing on seasonal data. Overall the results give rise to cautious optimism
