The right look : conservative politicians look better and their voters reward it by Niclas Berggren( )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and German and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Previous research has established that good-looking political candidates win more votes. We extend this line of research by examining differences between parties on the left and on the right of the political spectrum. Our study combines data on personal votes in real elections with a web survey in which 2,513 non-Finnish respondents evaluated the facial appearance of 1,357 Finnish political candidates. We find that political candidates on the right are better looking in both municipal and parliamentary elections and that they have a larger beauty premium in municipal, but not in parliamentary, elections. As municipal candidates are relatively unknown, the beauty-premium gap indicates that voters - especially those to the right - use beauty as a cue for candidate ideology or quality in the municipal elections
Selfish and prospective: theory and evidence of pocketbook voting by Mikael Elinder( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We present and test a theory of prospective and retrospective pocketbook voting. Focusing on two large reforms in Sweden, we establish a causal chain from policies to sizeable individual gains and losses and then to voting. The Social Democrats proposed budget cuts affecting parents with young children before the 1994 election, but made generous promises to the same group before the 1998 election. Since parents with older children were largely unaffected we use a difference-in-differences strategy for identification. We find clear evidence of prospective pocketbook voting. Voters respond to campaign promises but not to the later implementation of the reforms. -- Elections ; Economic voting ; Pocketbook voting ; Self-interest ; Prospective voting ; Retrospective voting ; Child care
Optimal utilitarian taxation and horizontal equity by Henrik Jordahl( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We impose a horizontal equity restriction on the problem of finding the optimal utilitarian tax mix. The horizontal equity constraint requires that individuals with the same ability have to pay the same amount of taxes regardless of their preferences for leisure. Contrary to normal findings, we find that a good that is complementary to leisure can be encouraged by the tax system, and that a good that normally should be discouraged by the tax system can be subsidized even if the economy is composed of only two private commodities plus leisure. Also, the marginal effective tax rate can be different from zero at the top (of the ability distribution) when the tax mix obeys the horizontal equity constraint

The looks of a winner: beauty, gender, and electoral success by Niclas Berggren( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study the role of beauty in politics using candidate photos that figured prominently in electoral campaigns. Our investigation is based on visual assessments of 1,929 Finnish political candidates from 10,011 respondents (of which 3,708 were Finnish). An increase in beauty by one standard deviation is associated with an increase of 1720 percent in the number of votes for the average non-incumbent candidate. The relationship is virtually always statistically significant for female candidates, and in most specifications also for male candidates
The looks of a winner: beauty, gender and electoral success by Niclas Berggren( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We study the role of beauty in politics. For the first time, focus is put on differences in how women and men evaluate female and male candidates and how different candidate traits relate to success in real and hypothetical elections. We have collected 16,218 assessments by 2,772 respondents of photos of 1,929 Finnish political candidates. Evaluations of beauty explain success in real elections better than evaluations of competence, intelligence, likability, or trustworthiness. The beauty premium is larger for female candidates, in contrast to findings in previous labor-market studies"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site

Välfärdstjänster i privat regi : framväxt och drivkrafter by Henrik Jordahl( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Swedish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Den svenska välfärdsmodellen kännetecknas av offentlig finansiering, ökande grad av konkurrens mellan olika utförare samt större valfrihet för brukarna. Hur har den här modellen vuxit fram? Varför skiljer sig utvecklingen åt mellan olika delar av landet och mellan olika tjänster? Vilken roll har politiker på nationell och lokal nivå, utförarorganisationer och tjänsternas brukare spelat? I dag produceras en sjundedel av de skattefinansierade välfärdstjänsterna av privata utförare. Men variationen mellan enskilda kommuner och landsting är stor. I Stockholms län finns till exempel fler platser på privata än på kommunala äldreboenden, samtidigt som mer än hälften av landets kommuner helt saknar privata äldreboenden. Antologin redogör först ur ett historiskt perspektiv för privatiseringen av välfärdstjänster sedan 1980-talet, med fokus på nationella reformer och lokala initiativ. Därefter undersöks ett antal möjliga förklaringar till hur pass utbredd privatiseringen av olika tjänster är i olika delar av landet. Tillsammans visar antologins kapitel att politiska, ekonomiska och geografiska drivkrafter har samspelat när den privata produktionen har vuxit fram. I flera fall redovisas nya samband som åtminstone i Sverige inte har undersökts som möjliga förklaringar till välfärdens privatisering. Antologin ingår i SNS och IFN:s forskningsprogram Från välfärdsstat till välfärdssamhälle. Författare är forskarna Matz Dahlberg, Mikael Elinder, David Isaksson, Henrik Jordahl (red.), Anders Lindbom, Heléne Lundqvist, Ulrika Winblad och Richard Öhrvall. [Publit]

Outsourcing public services : ownership, competition, quality and contracting by Fredrik Andersson( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We survey the literature on the effects of public sector outsourcing. Guided by theory, we systematically arrange services according to the type and magnitude of their contractibility problems. Taken as a whole, the empirical literature indicates that public sector outsourcing generally reduces costs without hurting quality. This is clearly the case for "perfectly contractible services" like garbage collection, but outsourcing often seems to work reasonably well also for some services with more difficult contracting problems, e.g. fire protection and prisons. Outsourcing seems to be more problematic for credence goods, with residential youth care as the prime example. In contrast to previous reviews, we conclude that ownership and competition appear to be about equally important for the consequences of public sector outsourcing. -- outsourcing ; contracts ; tendering ; ownership ; competition ; quality
