  • Music Then and Now: Using Technology to Build a Lyric Animation Module
    • Authors: Wayne Geerling, G. Dirk Mateer, Brian O’Roark
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This article describes a student group project (Music for Econ) which synthesizes music with economics and is a great way to connect with your audience. We trace the journey of Music for Econ from its inception as a Pop-Up video in the early 2000s through to the creation of a Music for Econ library on Critical Commons. Music for Econ is a pedagogical device which can be used to demonstrate the everyday application of economics and help unlock student creativity. Consequently, we provide the instructor with a do it yourself (DIY) manual, which shows them how to set up the project, customize it depending on the size of their class, and how to avoid common pitfalls. We also include an end of project survey template for reference and future use in an appendix. More broadly, Music for Econ is simply fun to watch if you like music and enjoy leaning about economics.JEL Classifications: A20, A21, A22

  • Game Theoretic Choices Between Corrupt Dictatorship Exit Emoluments and
           Nation-Building CDR Benefits: Is There a Nash Equilibrium'
    • Authors: Dennis Ridley, Aryanne de Silva
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Recent developments in economic theory have established that gross domestic product (GDP) is determined almost entirely by the institutions of capitalism, democracy, and rule of law (CDR). To raise GDP, a corrupt dictator-led country must raise its CDR index. Its corrupt ruler aims to maximize his personal wealth in what he perceives to be a zero sum game. He maximizes personal wealth from a certainty undeserved large share of low GDP versus a deserved small share of high GDP, the former share being larger than the latter in absolute value. We explore the question of how to pay off the corrupt dictator with an emolument, conditional on the dictator reforming or leaving the country, and replaced by a democratically elected government. A game is designed such that when played, it reveals the Nash equilibrium emolument that the reformed or exiting corrupt leader and the entering nation-builders will agree to.JEL Classifications: A20, A22

  • Do Teacher Credentials and Characteristics Affect Teacher Effectiveness in
           High School Economics'
    • Authors: John R. Swinton, Chris Clark
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      We use student-level administrative data from Georgia to examine how teacher characteristics affect student learning. Specifically, we examine students’ normalized end-of-course test scores for a required high school economics course. We develop two models. First, we examine returns to activities often linked to teacher effectiveness—experience, advanced degrees, National Board Certification, and curriculum-specific in-service workshops. Second, we investigate the importance of having teachers share characteristics with their students. Similar to many studies before us, we find little systematic link between any of the observable teacher characteristics and better student outcomes once we control for unobservable teacher characteristics. Of note, we do find that female students tend to perform better with female teachers than with male teachers. Overall, the results highlight the difficulty in relying on just one specific measure of teacher quality to ensure student performance.JEL Classifications: A13, A21, I24

  • Assessing the Role of Governance in West African Fiscal Performance
    • Authors: Fisayo Fagbemi
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      The article analyzes the short-run and long-run dynamic relationship between the quality of institutions and fiscal performance in 12 West African countries over the period of 1984 to 2016 using Pooled Mean Group and Mean Group estimator. The results show that, in the long run as well as in the short run, improved governance appears to lead to decreasing deficits. In comparison with other measures, in the long run, democratic accountability dimension seems to have the most significant effect on West African fiscal performance. However, the empirical evidence further reveals that, in the short run, the institutional dimensions are found to be insignificant in explaining West African fiscal performance. Hence, given that increased public debt could harm the quality of sustainable fiscal measures, the study suggests that creating incentives for the building of sound institutions and securing enabling governance would enhance fiscal prudence and sustainability in West Africa.JEL Classifications: G, H

  • A New Theory of Demand-Restricted Growth: The Basic Idea
    • Authors: Thomas Gries
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      In mainstream theory, growth is explained fully by elements of the supply side. In this article, we depart from neoclassical mechanisms and suggest a hybrid approach that allows for growth restrictions induced by demand-side elements. We obtain such demand-restricted growth by suggesting an unconventional equilibrium concept in a stochastic environment. We define macroeconomic equilibrium as stationary no-expectation-error equilibrium. This equilibrium concept relates to the Nash idea of individual stationary behavior as long as expectations prove to be realized. No rigidities are introduced. Even if potential growth is generated by technical change and capital accumulation, the growth path is restricted by effective earnings and can be stable below the neoclassical path of potential growth. However, the growth process mutates to the neoclassical process if effective earnings and potential earnings equalize. Therefore, our hybrid model could help to bridge a gap between Keynesian and neoclassical ideas of economic growth.JEL Classifications: E12, E13, O40, E60

  • Ex-Incarceree/Convict Status: Beneficial for Self-Employment and
    • Authors: Armel Irankunda, Gregory N. Price, Norense E. Uzamere, Miesha J. Williams
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This article considers whether ex-incarceree/convict status favorably conditions the decision to be self-employed—a proxy for entrepreneurship. With data from the U.S. General Social Survey, we estimate the parameters of simple Probit and Bivariate Probit treatment specifications of individual self-employment outcomes as a function of ex-incarceree/convict status, and several measures of individual risk-taking propensities. Parameter estimates reveal that ex-incarceree/convict status has a positive and significant treatment effect on self-employment, particularly for Black Americans, after controlling for various measures of individual risk propensities. Our results suggest that the expansion of entrepreneurship training programs and the elimination of any barriers that restrict access to start-up capital for ex-incarcerees/convicts would reduce crime and recidivism, ameliorate mass incarceration, and complement pro-growth economic policies that induce more self-employment and entrepreneurship.JEL Classification: J01, J24, L26, Z13

  • What Does Political Economy Tell Us About the Dearth of Black
    • Authors: Vincent E. Mangum
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      There is a historical and consistent lack of parity in the Black community between labor and firms. Various authors have attributed entrepreneur-centered failures and shortcomings as the source of Black Entrepreneurship under-performance. This study, however, utilizing the Theory of Market Barriers, sought to discover the factors associated with market conditions that may play a causal role on new firm entry and coincidentally entrepreneurship choice. With count data from the Survey of Minority Owned Enterprises 1992-1997 (SMOBE), this study estimated the parameters of a Limit Profit Model to determine the effect political economic barriers have on new firm entry. The results implicate historical and ongoing biased policy generating imperfect market conditions lowering the economic value of entrepreneurial choice and hindering Black Entrepreneurship. This suggests that among the various explanations for the dearth of Black entrepreneurs, low Black labor demand and persistent high Black unemployment, barriers emanating from political economy, also appear to be important.JEL Classifications: I, J, O

  • The Effects of IMF Loan Condition Compliance on GDP Growth
    • Authors: Lauren Hackler, Frank Hefner, Mark D. Witte
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Since beginning operations in 1947, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has evolved from its original purpose of overseeing the world’s monetary system to becoming a loan administrator for member nations facing extreme economic crises. Today, the IMF provides conditional lending programs to catalyze economic recovery and growth in recipient countries. Critics of these programs cite various reasons for conditional loan program failures, naming the borrowing countries, creditor countries, and/or the IMF itself as responsible. Using data from 8,377 loan conditions associated with 93 countries’ IMF loan arrangements from 2000 to 2014, this article studies the effects of complying with individual conditions on the borrowing countries’ real gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate. Our results suggest that real GDP growth rates are directly affected by meeting the compliance standards of select loan conditions.JEL Classifications: 019, F35

  • Henry A. Wallace as Vice President: The Last New Dealer
    • Authors: Per Magnus Wijkman
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      In his third term, Roosevelt appointed Vice President Henry A. Wallace to Chair the Board of Economic Warfare. Conflicts soon arose with Secretaries Jessie Jones and Cordell Hull. An ailing Roosevelt replaced Wallace by Leo Crowley and adopted a bipartisan policy to win the war. He abandoned the New Deal, and left to Wallace to support trade unions, to protect the rights of Blacks in the South and of those working in defense industries in the North and to champion the interests of the common man. Roosevelt dropped Wallace from the ticket in 1944 to get southern support to run for a fourth term. As Secretary of Commerce in President Truman’s cabinet, Wallace advocated normalizing relations with the U.S.S.R. But like his father before him, he now represented a minority view in a government dominated by industrial, military, and financial interests. At the urging of Secretary of State Byrnes, President Truman dismissed Wallace in 1946.JEL Classification: F5.

      First page: 167
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      The first Sveriges Riksbank Prizes in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel were awarded in 1969, 50 years ago. In this essay, we provide the historical origins of this sixth “Nobel” field, background information on the recipients, their nationalities, educational backgrounds, institutional affiliations, and collaborations with their esteemed colleagues. We describe the contributions of a sample of laureates to economics and the social and political world around them. We also address—and speculate—on both some of their could-have-been contemporaries who were not chosen, as well as directions the field of economics and its practitioners are possibly headed in the years ahead, and thus where future laureates may be found.JEL Classifications: A1, B3

  • A Note on Pricing With Market Power: Third-Degree Price Discrimination
           With Quality-Differentiated Demand
    • Authors: Charles F. Adams
      First page: 183
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      The article points up limitations in the standard undergraduate treatment of third-degree price discrimination by monopolists. While such treatments allude to qualitative distinctions between higher and lower priced alternatives, failure to capture those distinctions in underlying cost and demand structures results in only partial and possibly misleading conclusions about the nature and consequences of such discrimination. Deriving quality-differentiated linear demand and cost structures from the constructs underlying undergraduate microeconomics, the article compares the standard analysis of price discrimination with one that explicitly accounts for quality choices and monopoly power in manipulating those choices. The analysis illustrates the potential for substantially greater monopoly profits and greater efficiency losses by forcing some groups of consumers into suboptimal quality choices once quality variations are explicitly accounted for.JEL Classifications: A1, A22, D11, D21, D42

  • Estimation of Wage–Risk Differentials Without Wages
    • Authors: Donald F. Vitaliano
      First page: 188
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Utilizing the duality properties of a production/profit function, this article estimates the risk premium received by Pennsylvania bituminous coal miners in 1915, without recourse to any information related to wages. A Cobb-Douglas coal production function is fitted to data for 694 mining establishments. Miners received modest risk compensation, expressed as the value of a statistical life (VSL), of US$6,020 for fatal injuries and US$3,550 for nonfatal accidents. Converted to current price and wage levels, the death risk VSL is roughly US$400,000—far below modern multi-million dollar life values for workplace risk.JEL Classifications: I10, J17, J28, L11, L72

  • Mental Health and Happiness: Evidence From the U.S. Data
    • Authors: Nazgol Makki, Madhu S. Mohanty
      First page: 197
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      The current study examines the role of poor mental health characterized by depression in the determination of an individual’s happiness measured by self-satisfaction and job satisfaction. Using two samples from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, 1979 (NLSY79) and following an ordered probit approach, the study demonstrates that, other variables held constant, an individual suffering from mental depression is likely to have lower levels of self-satisfaction and job satisfaction than those with better mental health. The significance of this variable in both self-satisfaction and job satisfaction regressions indicates that metal health status is an important covariate of an individual’s overall well-being, and should not, therefore, be omitted when estimating relevant happiness equations.JEL Classification Codes: A12, J28, Z13

  • The Effects of Work Hours on Physical and Mental Health of Late Prime Age
           Men and Women
    • Authors: Comfort F. Ricketts, Randall C. Campbell, Jon P. Rezek
      First page: 216
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Our results show that negative returns to health outcomes set in at around 50 work hours per week, and that the negative effects of working long hours manifest earlier for women than men. Increased work hours are associated with higher incomes and better access to medical care. However, increased work hours also generate greater physical and mental stress, which may cause health problems. We examine these questions empirically with data from the 2006 wave of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY), using two-stage least squares to account for endogeneity of work hours and income in the health outcomes model.JEL Classifications: I10, J22, C36

  • Convergence of Mortality Among African Americans
    • Authors: Shahdad Naghshpour, Sediq Sameem
      First page: 237
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this study is to explore any possible convergence in African American mortality rates in the United States. Using county-level data of the United States over a period of nearly five decades (1968-2015), the findings indicate that β-convergence has occurred in mortality rates of African American population implying that their mortality rates are getting closer to their means. The results are particularly stronger for females and the elderly. The findings reflect lower cost of implementation and dissemination of strategies that would target the health of such population.JEL Classifications: I10, I30, R10

  • Are People Trained in Economics “Different,” and if so,
           Why' A Literature Review
    • Authors: Simon Niklas Hellmich
      First page: 246
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Some argue that frequent confrontation with the homo economicus actor-concept motivates economists to adjust their behavior to that paradigm. Another thesis is that economists are different because the discipline attracts individuals with preferences that differ from those of noneconomists. This article discusses survey, experimental, and field evidence collected during this debate. In certain situations, there appear differences between the behavior of people trained in economics and other groups, but as the existing evidence is mostly ambiguous, a comprehensive picture of the nature and sources of these differences has not yet emerged. The article concludes that economics teachers and researchers should pay more attention to the influence the normative statements inherent in basic neoclassical economics can have on cognitive frames and interindividual processes in moral decision making.JEL Classifications: A13, A2

  • Publishing and Scholarship in Economic Education: A Catalog and Assessment
    • Authors: Carlos J. Asarta, Frank G. Mixon
      First page: 269
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      The American Economist (AEX) has a long history of publishing scholarship in economic education. In fact, a recent study by Lo, Wong, Mixon, and Asarta found AEX to rank third in terms of economic education articles published in all economics journals indexed in the Social Sciences Citations Index. According to Asarta, Jennings, and Grimes, AEX’s contributions to the field can be cataloged into four major categories: program design, instructional and assessment methodology, instructional materials, and student outcomes. To continue with AEX’s history of encouraging, promoting, and disseminating economic education scholarship, this article catalogs the opportunities that now exist for publishing such work in journals focused on economic education–specific work. In addition, the article assesses the relative impact of the work presented in those journals since 1995, a key year in the field, with the ultimate goal of serving as a valuable resource for scholars interested in publishing in the dynamic field of economic education.JEL Classifications: A20, A30

  • Illustrating the Difference Between a Pigovian Tax and Emissions Fee Using
           Isoquant and Isocost Geometry
    • Authors: Christopher S. Decker
      First page: 282
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      The study of environmental economics is motivated by the idea that pollution constitutes a negative externality. When production costs do not include the harm to human health and the environment, the market price is too low and output levels are too high, relative to the efficient levels. The initial solution to this problem is usually the “the Pigovian tax” on production. However, all subsequent tax analysis focuses directly on emissions. This tends to leave students wondering (a) why discuss Pigou in the first place and (b) why is it better to focus on pollution emissions rather than production. I provide a graphical analysis, using isoquant and isocost geometry, to illustrate that a direct fee on the externality-generating input is more efficient than a tax on output. This analysis is something teachers might consider utilizing to clarify why there is a transition from output taxation to input taxation.JEL Classifications: A22, A23, Q50

  • Pricing Footraces in the United States: An Application of Hedonic Pricing
           to the Running Industry
    • Authors: Randy R. Grant, Brittany Teahan
      First page: 293
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Footraces, as a market commodity, are a curious thing. Nonrunners often ask racers why they pay to engage in an activity that they could do on their own at a much lower cost (both in terms of money and time), not recognizing that races offer unique attributes obtainable only through organized events. Employing more than 1,200 observations from 199 running races that occurred in 2015, this analysis uses a standard hedonic pricing model to identify both demand and supply side factors that determine the final price of a race event across the United States. Results suggest that late registration, race distance, the existence of complementary distances within the race, and the inclusion of a race shirt and/or medal with the paid entry increase the price of the race. Early registration, the number of years a race has been in existence, and a nonpaved race surface have a negative and statistically significant effect on the entry fee.JEL Classifications: Z20, Z21

    • Authors: Per Magnus Wijkman
      First page: 306
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      In three successive generations, a Henry Wallace advocated interests of the agricultural Midwest: trust busting, natural resource conservation, application of science in agricultural, freer trade, and international comity. While characterized as a Midwest institution, the family’s success as Secretaries of Agriculture ultimately depended on presidential support. Henry C. Wallace failed to restore prosperity to farmers in the depression after World War I due to the opposition of President Harding. His son Henry A. Wallace succeeded in the Great Depression thanks to strong support of President Roosevelt.JEL Classifications: N13, Q15
