The nature of creative development by Jonathan S Feinstein( )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Nature of Creative Development presents a new understanding of the basis of creativity, describing patterns of development of individuals engaged in creative endeavors. The author shows how creativity grows out of distinctive, unique creative interests individuals form, often years before they make their main contributions, which grow out of their interests. He describes how individuals' interests spark creative responses, as well as ways in which individuals are guided by their interests and values." "This book provides a framework for those engaged in creative work or managing individuals engaged in such work. It will help the reader understand the nature of creativity, including difficulties they may encounter in their work and ways to overcome them."--Jacket

The relationship between state and federal tax audits by James Alm( )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we present an econometric analysis of state and federal tax audits. We first present results from a survey of state tax administrators. The survey results indicate that most state tax audit programs are small and rely extensively on information provided by the IRS, although some programs are large and sophisticated. We then present results from a detailed econometric analysis of Oregon state and federal tax returns and tax audits for tax year 1987. Our analysis generates three main conclusions. First, Oregon state and IRS selection criteria are similar, but not identical, suggesting that both tax agencies might benefit from greater sharing of information, especially in some audit classes. Second, Oregon state and IRS audit assessments are strongly positively correlated, as expected. Third, we estimate the shadow values associated with providing additional audit resources to the Oregon Department of Revenue and the IRS in various audit classes, and find that for the IRS the shadow values range from two to five dollars, while for Oregon the values range from one to three dollars
Elderly asset management and health : a empirical analysis by Jonathan S Feinstein( )

17 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We present models of asset management by the elderly. We focus on saving, spend-down of assets, and gift-giving, and the influence of health on these precesses. We also study the evolution of elderly health and the impact of economic variables on health outcomes. We present results from estimating our models using data from waves one and two of the AHEAD dataset. Our model of asset management links elderly decisions about saving, spend-down of assets, and gift-giving in a system of equations. We divide households for which head and partner (if present) are in poor health and those for which head and partner are in good health; our specification allows for differences in health to affect both the average level of economic outcomes and the marginal effects of income and wealth on the outcomes. We also include in our model a set of sociodemographic control variables. Our model of health outcomes links health in the preceding period to health in the current period, allowing for three outcomes good health, poor health, or death. In our models of health outcomes we include variables measuring health in the previous period, wealth, age, education, and control variables. Our main results are the following. First, results for gift-giving suggest that at least some elderly do plan their estate transfer - those that have established trust funds or for which households assets exceed the estate tax filling threshold have a significantly greater propensity to give gifts. Second, the average level of gift-giving is lower for those in poor health, but the marginal effect of increasing wealth on gift-giving is much greater. This result is important in showing the ways in which health can interact with economic variables in influencing economic decision-making. Third, income is an important determinant of saving and spend-down. Fourth, other things equal, households that save are also more likely to give gifts. Fifth, sudden changes in family structure and health are associated with changing patters of economic behavior - most especially, becoming a widow or widower is associated with a significant increase in the likelihood both of spending out of assets and of making gifts. Finally, variables related to children have less effect on propensity to give gifts than expected - the only variable that has a significant effect is the number of children for which parents cannot provide income information, suggesting that the quality of the relationship between parents and children is important for gift-giving
Elderly health, housing, and mobility by Jonathan S Feinstein( )

13 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I construct dynamic economic models which focus on an elderly person's decision whether to move in response to changes in his or her health status. The models specify three health states (good, moderately disabled, and poor), three matching housing states (conventional, transitional, and institutional), and explicitly include several different kinds of mobility costs, including the direct utility costs, the indirect health effects of mobility, and, in the more complex model, financial transaction costs. The first model I present examines elderly mobility in a simple environment in which utility depends only on the match between housing and health, and a bequest. The second model extends the first to incorporate housing prices, household wealth, and elderly consumption decisions. Extensive simulations of the two models show that both predict considerable mobility, even when mobility costs are large. The results also highlight the importance of transitional housing, and provide evidence on the relationship between housing, mobility, household wealth, and consumption
Public goods in trade : on the formation of markets and political jurisdictions by Alessandra Casella( )

18 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current debate in Western Europe centers on the relationship between economic and political integration. To address this problem, we construct a simple general equilibrium model in which the returns to trading are directly affected by the availability of a public good. In our model, heterogeneous agents choose both a club and a market to belong to. In the club, agents vote over the public good, are taxed to finance this good, and receive access to it when they trade. In the market, they are randomly matched with a partner. If a match occurs between traders of different clubs, they both suffer a transactions cost. We show that, in general, the political boundaries established by the clubs can be distinct from market borders, leading to international trade between members of different clubs. Further, as the region develops, markets become wider (eventually leading to a common market) and the desire to avoid transaction costs initially leads to political unification. At still higher levels of development, however, where transaction costs are less important, traders prefer the diversity offered by multiple clubs
An economic analysis of life care by Jonathan S Feinstein( )

13 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Life care communities offer long term care to the elderly in the context of a residential community. Residents move into a life care community while still relatively young (though typically past age 65), initially occupying an independent living unit situated in a living complex similar to a retirement community. Later, when a resident requires more intensive care, she moves to an on-site nursing facility. We present an economic analysis of the life care industry. Our model includes a detailed specification of elderly couples' utility, a description of elderly morbidity and mortality experiences, and a formulation of the life care contract. Using extensive computer simulations we show that life care offers two main advantages to elderly as compared with stand-alone nursing homes: (i) reduced mobility costs and nearness to spouse and friends when sick; and (ii) insurance, linked to a rebate paid to the couple's heirs. We also investigate regulation of life care and the effects stemming from the risk of operator bankruptcy
Management of a common currency by Alessandra Casella( )

12 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents a simple general equilibrium model of two countries using a common currency. The goal is to study how the monetary arrangement influences the optimum financing of a public good. If the two countries are allowed to print the common currency autonomously, they will finance their fiscal spending with money, oversupplying the public good and crowding out the private sector. The possibility to export part of the inflation creates a distortion in incentives such the resulting equilibrium is strictly welfare inferior to the one prevailing under flexible exchange rates. If the management of the common currency is deferred to an international central bank, each country will try to use domestic policy variables (taxes) to manipulate in its favor the actions of the bank. With no independent domestic taxes, the bank can improve welfare. However, its policies naturally support the larger country, and to induce the smaller one to participate requires giving it a disproportionately large, politically unrealistic, representation in the bank's objective function
The dynamics of housing demand by the elderly : wealth, cash flow, and demographic effects by Jonathan S Feinstein( )

8 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using Waves one through fifteen of the PSID data set, we investigate the pattern of housing mobility amongst the elderly. We focus especially on two issues: (1) Determining which household characteristics tend to increase the probability of a move; and (2) Whether elderly households systematically move to smaller, less expensive dwellings when they do move, and, if so, which characteristics make such "downsizing" particularly likely. We find that wealthier households are less likely to move and to downsize, and that changes in family composition or retirement status significantly increase the likelihood of a move. We do not find much evidence of imperfections in the housing market, or of pervasive liquidity constraints. Finally, we develop a Lagrange Multiplier test for unobserved heterogeneity amongst elderly households, and strongly reject the null hypothesis of homogeneity

Mercy Corps : sustainable innovation through corporate partnerships by Andrea R Nagy( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mercy Corps was known for its gutsy approach to disasters. While other relief and development organizations were scrambling to plan a response, Mercy Corps would already be on the ground with aid and skilled field workers. In addition to performing emergency relief, the agency had also developed strong programs in economic development using a 'community mobilization' approach that emphasized local control and sponsorship of projects. This case examines Mercy Corps' continued progression and development
Veterans Health Administration : Dr. Kizer considers radical surgery on an ailing system by Allison Mitkowski( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a navy diver and an emergency room physician, Dr. Kenneth Kizer had faced pressure-filled situations requiring focus and determination. As the director of the California Department of Health Services, he had proven his ability to navigate a bureaucracy, and had built a reputation for orchestrating major improvements using a no-nonsense approach to managing healthcare. In 1994, as the newly-appointed director of the Veteran's Health Administration (VHA), the doctor knew he would have to draw on his past experiences as he faced the most formidable challenge of his career. This case study examines this topic
