      Authors: Ben L. Kyer, Gary E. Maggs
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      In 2016, Hurricane Matthew caused approximately 10 billion dollars of damage in the United States and nearly 350 million dollars in South Carolina. The historic rainfall damaged or completely destroyed roads, bridges, buildings, crops, and dams. This paper documents how one small lakefront community in eastern South Carolina formed a de facto Buchanan Club to fund the reconstruction of a dam destroyed by Matthew and restore a small lake, an exemplary club good. This private response was needed because both the Federal and State governments declined public assistance. In the end and roughly approximately two years after Matthew, the dam was repaired and the lake refilled with the rainfall of Hurricane Florence.

  • Teaching Methods in Undergraduate Intermediate Theory, Statistics and

           Sixth National Quinquennial Survey

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Cynthia Harter, Carlos J. Asarta
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This article is an extension of a recent article published in The American Economist (Asarta et al., 2021) and presents the second report of basic findings from the 2020 online administration of the sixth national quinquennial survey on teaching and assessment methods in economics. Consistent with the results from the first report, we find that “chalk and talk” remains the staple method of instruction across the entire undergraduate economics curriculum. Lessons, activities, and references that address diversity, inclusion, or gender issues are almost never used in intermediate theory, statistics and econometrics, and other upper-division field courses. There has been notable growth in the use of cooperative learning/small-group assignments, as well as in instructor-led and “student(s) with student(s)” discussions over the past 25 years. Overall, however, there have been minimal changes in teaching methods over time.JEL Classifications: A20, A22

      Authors: Mary H. Lesser
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Many colleges and universities have put in place some form of freshman or first-year experience. This article suggests the use of a course in behavioral economics when the first-year experience has an academic basis and demonstrates how such a course can assist in the achievement of acculturation goals as well as help diagnose areas of strength and weakness in academic preparedness.JEL Classifications: A20, A22, D90, D91

  • Henry A.Wallace as Presidential Candidate: “Am I in
           America'”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Per Magnus Wijkman
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Henry A. Wallace challenged the bipartisan foreign policy of President Truman in 1948. The Progressive Citizens of America opposed Truman’s “get-tough policy” (the Truman Doctrine, loyalty investigations, Universal Military Training, and the Marshall Plan) and founded the Progressive Party. Other “liberals” formed Americans for Democratic Action and supported Truman, who claimed that the Progressive Party was a Soviet construction. Wallace refused to participate in segregated meetings during his campaign in the South and was violently attacked. He advocated the need for federal measures to prohibit segregation, discrimination, the poll tax, and lynching. Wallace was resoundingly defeated but proved right in the long run: military means could not solve social problems. Instead, it spread hatred of the United States in many countries. The 1948 election determined U.S. foreign policy for over 50 years, resulting in missed opportunities to improve housing, education, and social security at home, which still has repercussions today.JEL Classifications: N42, F50

  • A Guide to Using the Synthetic Control Method to Quantify the Effects of
           Shocks, Policies, and Shocking Policies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Bibek Adhikari
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Governments introduce various policies intending to improve the overall economy or to influence individual behavior. However, estimating the causal impact of these policies is challenging. I describe how the Synthetic Control Method (SCM) can be used in undergraduate econometrics or capstone courses to estimate the impact of economic policies. The SCM is a data-driven design that provides a systematic way of constructing a comparison group that looks very similar to the group implementing the policy. Thus, it allows us to estimate the policy’s impact by comparing the outcome variable’s post-policy path between the policy group and the comparison group. I review a broad range of policies and events that are analyzed using this method, briefly describe the theory behind the method, discuss various best practices, and provide a step-by-step implementation guide using the adoption of a value-added tax (VAT) by France as an example.JEL Classifications: C01, A1, A2

      Authors: Frederick Chen
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This note presents a simple graphical approach for deriving the profit maximizing two-part tariff when there are two types of consumers in the market. The exposition covers both the case in which a monopoly can offer only one two-part tariff plan and the case in which the monopoly can offer two different plans.JEL classification: D4

  • The Treatment Effect of Business Education on the Supply of High School
           Entrepreneurs in Atlanta and New Orleans

      Authors: Gregory N. Price, Chris W. Surprenant
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Strengthening the pathway to entrepreneurship for high school students could be important in regions of the United States where economic mobility is low. We examine the impact of high school business education on the decision to be a self-employed entrepreneur in two southeastern urban U.S. high schools. We appeal to a potential-outcomes framework to estimate the treatment effect of having taken a business and coding/programming course in high school on actually being a self-employed entrepreneur, and planning to do so in the future. We find evidence that having taken a business course in high school increases the likelihood of actually being a self-employed entrepreneur, and on planning to be one in the future. Our results suggest that, at least in Atlanta and New Orleans, urban high school business education can be effective in increasing the supply of entrepreneurs, which could improve economic mobility in these urban regions.JEL Classification: C14, C21, E10, I26, J01, J20, J40, M13

  • Too Much of a Good Thing: Quality-Differentiated Demand and Monopoly Bias

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Charles F. Adams
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Previous teaching notes focused on the logic and mechanics of a quality-differentiated linear demand structure. This note takes up the question of potential bias in how markets respond to quality-related aspects of consumer choice. Earlier examples demonstrated instances where monopoly interests might conflict with those of consumers in matters of quality choice. This article points to a more general propensity toward excessively high levels of quality under a monopoly market structure.JEL Classifications: D4, D41, D42

  • Factors Affecting the Availability of Abortion Providers

      Authors: Marshall H. Medoff
      First page: 190
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This study, using state data, empirically examines the factors affecting the availability of abortion providers over the period 1992–2011. The empirical results found that the labor force participation of women and the percentage of women of reproductive age in the 18–24 age group were positively associated with the number of abortion providers in a state. The level of antiabortion activities and antiabortion attitudes were negatively associated with the number of abortion providers in a state. Also, a state’s abortion rate was positively associated with the number of abortion providers. The enforcement of a parental involvement law by a state significantly deters physicians or organizations from becoming or remaining abortion providers.JEL Classifications: I11, I18, K32, K38

  • The Mathematical Revolution in Economics: Factor Flows in the Production
           of Academics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Dennis L. Weisman
      First page: 202
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      The main theme of this essay is that the mathematical revolution in economics precipitated factor flows in the production of academics, wherein able, if not creative, mathematicians moved into economics to earn large rents. This “technical migration” set in motion a counterproductive path dependency from which the discipline may find it difficult to extricate itself. A secondary theme explores the disparate views of Keynes and Schumpeter on economics as an “exact science” and the role that mathematics should play. The seminal question is not whether mathematics is an important tool for economic analysis, because this is not a debatable proposition, but whether the deification of mathematics has come at too high a cost. This cost includes elevating elegance over substance, discounting the importance of other disciplines, and dissuading gifted undergraduates from pursuing advanced study in economics because they do not aspire to be “mathematicians.”JEL Classifications: A22, A23, B31, B41

  • Modeling Student Effort: Flat Tires and Dead Batteries

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Joshua J. Lewer, Colin Corbett, Tanya M. Marcum, Jannett Highfill
      First page: 301
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This article develops a student effort model that considers several uncertainties students face: the chance of missing an exam as well as the uncertainty associated with translating knowledge into an exam grade. The model suggests that student effort increases when makeup exams are offered and when grading protocols are adopted that reduce knowledge-to-grade frictions; effects on student utility depend on time endowments, and leisure preferences.JEL Classifications: A20, D81, I21

  • A Note Concerning the Dynamics of Government Bond Yields

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Tanweer Akram
      First page: 323
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Keynes argued that the central bank can influence the long-term interest rate on government bonds and the shape of the yield curve mainly through the short-term interest rate. Several recent empirical studies that examine the dynamics of government bond yields not only substantiate Keynes’s view that the long-term interest rate responds markedly to the short-term interest rate but also have relevance for macroeconomic theory and policy. This article relates Keynes’s discussions of money, the state theory of money, financial markets, investors’ expectations, uncertainty, and liquidity preference to the dynamics of government bond yields for countries with monetary sovereignty. Investors’ psychology, herding behavior in financial markets, and uncertainty about the future reinforce the effects of the short-term interest rate and the central bank’s monetary policy actions on the long-term interest rate.JEL classifications: E12; E40; E43; E50; E58; E60; F30; G10; G12; H62; H63
