Fiscal adjustment and contingent government liabilities : case studies of the Czech Republic and Macedonia by Hana Polackova Brixi ( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Governments' contingent liabilities increase fiscal vulnerability, but are omitted in traditional measures of the current deficit. In the Czech Republic this omission may mean that fiscal adjustment has been overstated by 3 to 4 percent of annual GDP, with future budgets having to pay for past guarantees. The stock of existing contingent liabilities in Macedonia could add 2 to 4 percent of GDP to that country's future deficits

Conscription and crime by Sebastián Galiani ( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The initiation in criminal activities is, typically, a young phenomenon. The study of the determinants of entry into criminal activities should pay attention to major events affecting youth. In many countries, one of these important events is mandatory participation in military service. The objective of this study is to estimate the causal relationship between mandatory participation in military service and crime. The authors exploit the random assignment through a draft lottery of young men to conscription in Argentina to identify this causal effect. Their results suggest that participation in military service increased the likelihood of developing a criminal record in adulthood (in particular, for property and weapon-related crimes)
The indirect approach by David P Ellerman ( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Aid and conditionalities are the "carrot and sticks" of the conventional direct approach to fosering economic development. Considering the outcomes of the conventional approach, it might be worthwhile to explore alternative indirect approaches that focus on enabling clients to act more autonomously, rather than try for fuller control of clients' actions with improved carrots and sticks

The intriguing relation between adult minimum wage and child labour by Kaushik Basu ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Raising adult wages through a minimum wage law can in some circumstances have the paradoxical effect of increasing the amount of child labor. In other words, using minimum wage legislation as a form of international labor standard can exacerbate problems of child labor
Child labor across the developing world patterns and correlations by Jean Farès ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The aim of this study is two-fold. First, based on summary data at the country-level for an unusually large set of developing countries originally obtained from household sample surveys conducted between 1993 and 2003, the authors construct a detailed profile of child economic activity and child labor, attempting, wherever the data permit, to identify similarities and differences across regions and between genders. Second, they link the country-level data on child economic activity and child labor to country-level indicators of the state of economic and social development in the same time period in order to (1) ascertain if cross-country correlations previously identified in the literature are found in the data, and (2) illumine other possible correlations that may exist. As part of this exercise, the authors examine one important relationship that has thus far not been directly investigated in the literature, namely, the cross-country correlation between child labor, agriculture, and poverty
Fiscal adjustments in transition economies : social transfers and the efficiency of public spending : a comparison with OECD countries by Barbara Fakin ( Book )

Who owns the media? by Andrei Shleifer ( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Almost universally the largest media firms are controlled by the government or by private families. Djankov, McLiesh, Nenova, and Shleifer examine patterns of media ownership in 97 countries around the world. They find that almost universally the largest media firms are controlled by the government or by private families. Government ownership is more pervasive in broadcasting than in the printed media. Government ownership is generally associated with less press freedom, fewer political and economic rights, inferior governance, and, most conspicuously, inferior social outcomes in education and health. The adverse effects of government ownership on political and economic freedom are stronger for newspapers than for television. The adverse effects of government ownership of the media do not appear to be restricted solely to instances of government monopoly. Djankov, McLiesh, Nenova, and Shleifer present a range of evidence on the adverse consequences of state ownership of the media. State ownership of the media is often argued to be justified on behalf of the social needs of the disadvantaged. But if their findings are correct, increasing private ownership of the media--through privatization or by encouraging the entry of privately owned media--can advance a variety of political and economic goals, especially those of meeting the social needs of the poor. This paper--a product of the Office of the Senior Vice President, Development Economics--is one in a series of background papers prepared for World Development Report 2002: Institutions for Markets
