  • Overestimates of the racial wealth gap and the case for reparations

    • Authors: John A. TATOM
      Pages: 152 - 173
      Abstract: Abstract. The racial wealth gap indicates relative wellbeing, but wealth differs for many reasons. For example, Black family heads are nine years younger. Adjusting for this reduces 2019 median white family wealth from 7.8 times as large to 4.6 times as large and the shortfall of overall Black wealth from $1.6 trillion to $1.4 trillion. Second, it shows the difference from using averages instead of medians, the representative measure when wealth is not normally distributed. Using averages assumes wealth differs only due to race and raises the Black shortfall to $8.4 trillion. Regardless of the size of the wealth gap, however, this paper argues that there is a long history of analyses of the bases for reparations, whose potential amounts were unrelated to the existence or size of a racial wealth gap. Most of those hypotheses and estimates are inconsistent with recent proposals to eliminate the gap using reparations.Keywords. Wealth, Redistribution; Racial wealth gap; Reparations.JEL.

  • Coalition government or federalism' The relationship between policy
           distance and institutional design

    • Authors: Takaharu ISHII
      Pages: 131 - 151
      Abstract: Abstract. This study theorises the political system after the introduction of democracy through one mechanism: federalism and coalition government. This study shows that if a stable ruling party can be constituted by a coalition government without a federal system, then either the coalition government is maintained or a single party runs the state government as the ruling party, without devolving as much power to the regions as in a federal system. However, if there is a strong opposition party and the ruling party cannot be expected to have sufficient policy effectiveness, and if the opposition is strong enough in some regions to be the opposition party in the national government but the ruling party in the regions if federalism is introduced, then both the ruling party and the opposition party will benefit from federalism. Incentives then arise for both the ruling party and the opposition to reduce the powers of the state as a state and increase the powers of local government. Institutional designers choose whether to introduce federalism or to constitute a coalition government as a way of optimising investment for policy by the parties as well as the balance between policy distance between parties and the size of the parties.Keywords.
