Competitive Equilibrium Without Transitivity, Monotonicity, Or Free Disposal, Ted Bergstrom Dec 1973

Competitive Equilibrium Without Transitivity, Monotonicity, Or Free Disposal, Ted Bergstrom

Ted C Bergstrom

This paper shows how to relax several of the standard assumptions used to prove the existence of competitive equilibrium. I thought it was more interesting than the referees did. Some of the ideas in this paper appear in my other papers on general equilibrium.

Heterogeneous Labor, Minimum Hiring Standards, And Job Vacancies In Public Employment, Ronald G. Ehrenberg Nov 1973

Heterogeneous Labor, Minimum Hiring Standards, And Job Vacancies In Public Employment, Ronald G. Ehrenberg

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Although a government employer may be the only employer of a particular class of employees in an area (say firemen), it does not necessarily follow that the government agency possesses monopsony power, as current or potential employees can find employment in alternative occupations in the private sector. Moreover, a model is presented in this paper that indicates that the existence of persistent vacancy rates for a class of employees is compatible with there being a greater number of applicants than there are positions, at a wage rate that is predetermined either through a legislative process or collective bargaining. In ...


A Detailed Investigation Of The Sociological, Economic, And Ecological Aspects Of Proposed Reservoir Sites In The Salt River Basin Of Kentucky, Stuart E. Neff, Louis A. Krumholz, John R. Baker, Daryl E. Jennings, Andrew C. Miller, Jerry S. Parsons, Vincent H. Resh, David S. White Nov 1973

KWRRI Research Reports

Samples of water, bottom fauna, and fishes were collected from 66 stations in the Salt River and one of its principal tributaries, the Beech Fork and its tributary, the Chaplin River, Kentucky. Precipitation ranged from 38.86 inches (1969) to 58.04 inches (1970), an increase of nearly 50 percent with marked fluctuations in discharge. Intensive comparisons of phosphates, sulfates, specific conductance, total alkalinity, total hardness, and turbidity showed the streams to be relatively clean and healthy. Nearly 300 different kinds of benthic organisms and other macroinvertebrates have been collected and identified from the basin. Detailed studies of caddisflies and ...

Municipal Government Structure, Unionization, And The Wages Of Fire Fighters, Ronald G. Ehrenberg Oct 1973

Municipal Government Structure, Unionization, And The Wages Of Fire Fighters, Ronald G. Ehrenberg

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Also important to any analysis of labor costs in the public sector today is, of course, the effect of collective bargaining on wages. For reasons described in a recent article by Orley Ashenfelter, fire fighters provide an excellent test of union wage effects at the city level. This study will therefore use fire fighters as an example with which to assess and compare the effects on wages of both unionism and the structure of municipal government.

This article is in many respects an extension of the excellent study by Asehenfelter, who examined the effect of the International Association of ...

External Diseconomies In Competitive Supply: Comment, George A. Hay, John J. Mcgowan Sep 1973

External Diseconomies In Competitive Supply: Comment, George A. Hay, John J. Mcgowan

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

In a recent article in this Review, Charles Goetz and James Buchanan (G-B) assert that " . . . the standard description of misallocation in the presence of external production diseconomies is misleading . . . " because these externalities produce a ". . . combination of exchange-inefficiency with production-inefficiency [which ] renders the construction of correction devices much more difficult" (p. 889). Stated otherwise their contention is that with external diseconomies that are internal to an industry, i.e., those that each firm in an industry inflicts on other firms in the same industry, a competitive regime in the presence of a per unit tax on output designed to eliminate the ...

An Analysis Of The Effect Of Urban Concentration And Occupational Structure On Wage Differentials Between Women And Men In Selected Geographic Divisions Of The United States, Susan Stickler Hession-Eaton Aug 1973

An Analysis Of The Effect Of Urban Concentration And Occupational Structure On Wage Differentials Between Women And Men In Selected Geographic Divisions Of The United States, Susan Stickler Hession-Eaton

Graduate Thesis Collection

When attempting to explain the economics of occupational structure, income servies as the apex of discrimination. Women earn only 60% of what men earn. This statistic does not offend enough people since efforts to change the situation have provided only further resistance by women and men for improvement in the earnings split. Women tend to receive lower wage and salary earnings than men because of differences in types of jobs held, job training and continuity of work experience. Large numbers of women work in traditionally low-paying occupations and low-wage industries. Women tend to respond to their cultural up-bringing. My hypothesis ...


A Study Of The Utility And Validity Of Earnings Forecasts, Michael P. Howell Aug 1973

A Study Of The Utility And Validity Of Earnings Forecasts, Michael P. Howell

Honors Theses

According to William J. Casey, the past Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and recently appointed Under Secretary of State and Economic Affairs, forecasting should be the first and most important priority of all areas of management and public accounting. Only large institutional investment corporations have had access to such "useful" information when needed. Consequently, large investors are able to make more objective and intelligent investment decisions. A recent study determined that few investment corporations veritably have access to pertinent internal forecasting models. In fact, when interviewed, many executives claimed that even if they could procure such information, they ...

An Evaluation Of Tin Can Recycling In Kalamazoo, Michigan, Rose Ann Husted

Master's Theses

An Overview of Tin Can Recycling

Recycling Rationale

The economic system of the United States is based on taking natural resources, converting them into consumer products by industrial processes, and selling these products to consumers. It is assumed that consumers will use up all of these products. But this is not the case. The consumer uses only parts of these goods and discards the unwanted remains.

The Demand For State And Local Government Employees, Ronald G. Ehrenberg Jun 1973

The Demand For State And Local Government Employees, Ronald G. Ehrenberg

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] The primary purpose of this paper is to present empirical estimates of the wage elasticities of demand for different categories of state and local government employees. The employment demand equations that are estimated are derived from a utility maximization model of state and local government behavior. After presenting this model in the first section, we next briefly discuss the data used in the study. The structural system of demand equations is then estimated using pooled time-series and cross-section information, with annual individual state data as the units of observation. A number of alternative estimation methods are used in the ...
