Reducing drug trafficking revenues and violence in Mexico : would legalizing marijuana in California help? by Beau Kilmer( )

U.S. demand for illicit drugs creates markets for Mexican drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) and helps foster violence in Mexico. This paper examines how marijuana legalization in California might influence DTO revenues and the violence in Mexico. Key findings include: 1) Mexican DTOs' gross revenues from illegally exporting marijuana to wholesalers in the United States is likely less than $2 billion; 2) The claim that 60 percent of Mexican DTO gross drug export revenues come from marijuana should not be taken seriously; 3) If legalization only affects revenues from supplying marijuana to California, DTO drug export revenue losses would be very small, perhaps 2-4 percent; 4) The only way legalizing marijuana in California would significantly influence DTO revenues and the related violence is if California-produced marijuana is smuggled to other states at prices that outcompete current Mexican supplies. The extent of such smuggling will depend on a number of factors, including the response of the U.S. federal government. 5) If marijuana is smuggled from California to other states, it could undercut sales of Mexican marijuana in much of the U.S., cutting DTOs' marijuana export revenues by more than 65 percent and probably by 85 percent or more. In this scenario, the DTOs would lose approximately 20% of their total drug export revenues

Networks or lemons? by Brittany M Bond( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Past research has argued that hiring personnel use employment as a signal of worker quality. If firms tend to keep high ability workers, then those who are not employed will tend to be "lemons," labor market leftovers who are of uncertain quality. To the extent that employers rely on employment as a signal, then well-qualified, but out-of-work job seekers will be stigmatized simply by being out of work. "Networking" is commonly prescribed as a means for job seekers to overcome the negative signals of being out of work. But for networking to work, someone must be willing to provide a connection for the unemployed person. This begs two important questions: 1) will potential referrers also view unemployment as a negative signal? and, 2) does the willingness to help depend on the strength of the network tie? We design a survey vignette experiment to study how potential referrers react to the signal of unemployment, and how their decisions to refer job candidates depend on whether the potential referral is a friend vs. stranger. We find that referrers generally do react negatively to unemployed job seekers. However, despite the risk to their reputation, friends are more likely to refer the unemployed, and do so without distancing themselves from the unemployed candidate. This suggests that networking can indeed solve the lemons problem confronting unemployed job seekers
