  • Evaluating the Potential Socioeconomic Impact of a Proposed Sugarcane
           Factory on the Village of Mueang Phia, Thailand

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hideo Ishii-Adajar
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Thailand is the world’s second largest exporter of sugar, and under the 10-Year Cane and Sugar Strategy (2015–2024), the Thai government has granted an expansion of 13 new sugarcane factories. While most research focuses on the environmental consequences of sugarcane production, this paper examines the potential socioeconomic impact of a proposed sugarcane factory on a nearby (base) village by comparing it to a similar (treatment) village within the same region near an existing sugarcane factory. We find that treatment villagers have higher household income mainly due to their sugarcane-based village economy. They also disclose better perceived environmental quality while results for perceived health status are mixed. Yet, base villagers report higher perceived quality of life, likely due to factors beyond the socioeconomic conditions investigated in this study. Thus, the presence of a sugarcane factory, while socioeconomically favorable, may compromise other aspects of village life that contribute to its overall quality.

      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This lecture examines the lessons learned from the fiscal policy response to the Covid-19 pandemic. For each lesson, it discusses how the pandemic experience corroborates or contradicts earlier evidence on the efficacy and optimal design of fiscal policy. It also considers whether the lessons from the pandemic are likely to carry over to future recessions.

  • Gender and Racial Discrimination in the U.S. Music Industry

      Authors: Ying Zhen, Alan B. Krueger
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This study summarizes and analyzes the gender and racial discrimination that musicians may face in the music labor market of the United States, with a focus on exploring gender and race interactions’ effects on the economic return of musicians. This study is based on a survey of 1,227 musicians in the United States in 2018, which was conducted by the Music Industry Research Association (MIRA) and the Princeton University Survey Research Center (SRC), in partnership with MusiCares. The survey reveals that females, who make up about one-third of the population of musicians, report experiencing high rates of discrimination and sexual harassment. When considering female musicians, 72% report that they have been discriminated against because of their gender, and 67% report that they have been the victim of sexual harassment; corresponding figures for U.S. women more generally are 28% and 42%, respectively. For non-White musicians, 63% said they faced racial discrimination, as compared to 36% of on-White self-employed workers nationwide who said the same. Although the descriptive statistics suggest that musicians are suffering from both gender and racial discrimination, no initial empirical evidence has been found that this would have a negative impact on musicians’ music-related earnings. The interaction effects between gender and race in both general and specific forms on music-related earnings are studied to further explore the possible effect of gender/racial discrimination on the economic return to musicians’ music-related activities; however, although some race-associated differences have been found, the evidence of racial discrimination on the economic return is not strong.JEL Classifications: J15, J16, J44, J49

  • The Effect of Gender on Study Effort: Nudges Versus Market Incentives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jens Schubert
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      In an educational field experiment, I study the role of peers’ study habits (a social norm nudge) and for-credit assignments (a market incentive) on student study effort and learning outcomes. I randomize students in a large-enrollment introductory economics course into one of four treatments: for-credit practice problems only, information about successful peers’ study habits only, for-credit practice problems paired with peer information, and control. The 2x2 experimental design allows me to assess whether peer information and for-credit incentives act as complements or substitutes. I find that for-credit alone works significantly better than peer information alone to improve study effort. Interestingly, peer information works better for men than women. The interaction of the study incentives works best to improve study effort for women. The findings of this study inform micro-targeted educational choice architecture which could help narrow gender performance disparities in economics courses.JEL Classification: C93, I24, J16, D84, A22

  • Incorporating Quality-Differentiated Demand into the Undergraduate
           Microeconomics Core

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Charles F. Adams
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This paper addresses quality-related aspects of consumer choice in undergraduate microeconomics and is divided into two sections. The first develops a conceptual framework underlying a linear demand structure for quality-differentiated goods. The second section incorporates a quality-differentiated demand structure into a conventional undergraduate critique of market efficiency in responding to consumer choice. A competitive market is shown to produce the optimal quality mix of a quality-differentiated good, while a monopolist is biased in favour of higher quality and a potentially suboptimal quality mix.

  • Shelby County v. Holder and Changes in Voting Behavior

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Salvatore M. De Rienzo
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      In Shelby County v. Holder (2013), the U.S. Supreme Court declared unconstitutional Section 4(b) of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which required jurisdictions with histories of voter disenfranchisement to receive federal preclearance before altering voting laws. Since Shelby, 1688 polling sites across 13 states have closed. Utilizing a sample of eligible voters from the Current Population Survey, I first predict the likelihood of voting. Then, I analyze how Shelby has influenced the likelihood of ballot box access issues among non-voters. Overall voter turnout is 0.9pp lower in post-Shelby elections. Black eligible voters are 5.4pp less likely to vote after Shelby. However, Shelby is not associated with a higher likelihood of ballot box access issues. While the mechanisms through which Shelby affects voting behavior remain inconclusive, Shelby is significantly associated with widespread voter disenfranchisement. These findings are relevant for policymakers in creating a revised preclearance formula to curb voter disenfranchisement.

  • Using Federal Reserve Economic Data® Data to Address Diversity and
           Inclusion in the Classroom

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Diego Mendez-Carbajo
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This article describes 30 instructional resources produced by the Federal Reserve Bank of St Louis suitable to address topics related to diversity and inclusion in the undergraduate economics classroom. These resources employ FRED® data to broach a wide range of topics in the areas of gender, race, and inequality. The resources take the form of FRED Blog Reading Questions and Answers, Page One Economics essays, and Lesson Plans. Borrowing from the science, technology, mathematics, and engineering literature, we argue for the use of examples and demonstrations that draw connections between formal instruction and the social context of the learning process itself. To that end, we put forward examples for leveraging economics data from FRED® in instructional settings emphasizing active learning and the development of practical data-related skills.

  • Financial Integration and Economic Performance: Comparative Evidence from
           SADC and ECOWAS Regions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Benjamin U. Onah
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This paper examined the impact of financial integration on economic growth in Southern African Development Community (SADC) and Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) countries over the period 1993–2013. Using the Panel ARDL PMG Model developed by Pesaran and Shin, other control variables (trade openness, inflation, government expenditure, and institutional quality) were captured in the model. It was found that there is a significant and positive impact of financial integration on economic growth in the ECOWAS region in the long run. Whereas, even after controlling for necessary variables, financial integration exacerbates negative and insignificant effects in determining economic growth in the SADC region, both in the short run and long run. The insignificant and negative impact of financial integration on the region’s economic growth was attributed to several possible factors, including the low level of financial development in the SADC region, which is unconnected with the poor level of governance, unstable and fragile financial stability, or low creditworthiness, that are prevalent in developing countries like those in SADC countries. The findings suggest, amongst others, that increasing financial integration could improve the productive capacity of the economy, including more investments and the efficient allocation of capital, thus enhancing economic growth in these regions. This paper sheds new insights on a better evaluation of the past and present theorizing on the subjects of financial integration and economic growth, especially in comparing the separate effects on the economies of the SADC and ECOWAS countries.

  • Structured Notetaking and Student Performance in Microeconomics Courses

      Authors: Benjamin Artz, Denise Robson, Angel Camacho
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Notetaking is a vital component of student learning and perhaps even more critical in the recent emergence of e-learning settings. The conventional literature proposes notetaking increases student attention, provides students an external source of knowledge, and gives students the ability to encode learned material into a form most digestible to them. We utilize a framed field experiment to investigate whether training students in a structured notetaking method improves the quality of students’ notes and their performance on assessments in two Principles of Microeconomics courses in Spring 2019. We find in t-tests, ordinary least squares regressions, and fixed effects estimations that training in structured notetaking positively correlates with both the quality of student’s notes and their performance on course assessments.

  • Closing the Curriculum Gap by Updating Content Standards and Guidelines
           for Teaching Monetary Policy

      Authors: Jane Ihrig, Scott Wolla
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      The topic of the Federal Reserve’s (the Fed’s) implementation of monetary policy has a significant presence in economics teaching resources. Over the past decade or so, the Fed has purposefully shifted the way it implements monetary policy, introducing a new methodology with new policy tools. Unfortunately, many teaching materials are out of date with the Fed’s current ample-reserves regime and classroom teachers are often guided to teach old content. This guidance often comes from the Voluntary National Content Standards (VNCS) in Economics and the Advanced Placement (AP) Course and Exam Description that are sadly outdated. The VNCS influences the treatment of economics content in K-12 curriculum and textbooks, and the AP course framework determines the content taught in thousands of high school classrooms every year. As such, revising these influential documents is instrumental for closing the curriculum gap. We provide recommendations for how these materials can be updated.

  • Gender Differences in Financial Decision-Making and Behaviors in Single
           and Joint Households

      Authors: Jamie Wagner, William B. Walstad
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This study investigates gender differences in household financial behavior using data from the 2018 National Financial Capability Study, a large and nationally representative survey about adults’ financial behavior, knowledge, and attitudes. The behaviors include paying your credit card in full each month, having a 3-month emergency fund, having non-retirement investments, and having a non-employer retirement account. Results showed that single females were significantly less likely to engage in any of the financial behaviors compared to men. Additionally, females in joint households were also significantly less likely to engage in the behaviors compared to males. These results are robust when splitting the single and joint household samples by age, level of financial literacy, and using a sample from a prior year. Therefore, females may not be well-prepared for financial decision-making in single or joint households, which can have adverse consequences for managing current personal finances and building wealth for the future.JEL codesD12, D14, I21

  • Do Actions Speak Louder than Words'

      Authors: Alan Green, Daniel Humphrey
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      Are preferences for redistribution based on self-interest, ideology, or identity' This paper describes an experiment where participants play a game that requires both luck and skill for cash payoffs. At the end of the game, participants vote on the distribution of payoffs. Options range from full equality to unequal payments based on final rank. These votes are then analyzed; results show that self-interest, ideology, and identity all impact how participants vote. Those who do well are much more likely to vote for an unequal payoff while those who do poorly are likely to vote for an equal payoff. The degree of acceptable inequality, however, is influenced both by ideology (stated preferences over redistribution) and identity (race and age). The experiment also led to some changes in perspective, with those who did poorly in the game in particular being highly likely to shift their views in favor of redistribution.

  • The Economic Case Against Time Travel: Using Science Fiction Ideas to
           Emphasize Economic Processes in the Classroom

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: John R. Swinton
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      I describe a though experiment in which students can consider the importance of the profit motive, the passage of time, and the dissemination of information in various markets by imagining that time travel is possible. The thought experiment allows students to conclude that because the economic conditions that would result from time travel do not exist outside of the theoretical market models, certain types of time travel cannot exist. But, more importantly, it provides a tool to help students think more deeply about the assumptions of the economic models presented.JEL Classifications: A1, A2, D8, I20

  • Peak-Load Pricing With Quality-Differentiated Demand

      Authors: Charles F. Adams
      Abstract: The American Economist, Ahead of Print.
      This is the fifth in a series of teaching notes on quality-differentiated demand. With an eye on accessibility to undergraduate economics majors, the focus here is on peak-load pricing and highway tolls. Once quality considerations are accounted for, a richer set of insights is derived to guide social planners in deciding optimal levels of traffic flow and tolls.JEL Classifications: L0, D0
