Guilty Property: A Qualitative Analysis Of Civil Forfeiture, Brian Johnson, Greg Warchol Apr 2014

Guilty Property: A Qualitative Analysis Of Civil Forfeiture, Brian Johnson, Greg Warchol

Greg Warchol

The objective of this article is to explore how property seized under the federal civil-judicial forfeiture laws for drug law violations is proceeded against by the government. The methodology is primarily exploratory. A sample of federal civil-judicial drug forfeiture cases is described and then analyzed in regard to the relative importance of the cases’ characteristics. The findings raise serious questions about the use of this policy and the government’s intent behind forfeiture. Implications and suggestions for future research are also presented.

Storage For Good Times And Bad: Of Rats And Men, Ted Bergstrom

Ted C Bergstrom

How do rats and squirrels decide how much to hoard for the winter when they do not know how long the winter will be? This paper argues that natural selection is likely to result in random differences in the attitudes toward systemic risk by genetically identical individuals.

Do Guaranteed-Low-Price Policies Guarantee High Prices, And Can Antitrust Rise To The Challenge?, Aaron S. Edlin Nov 1997

Do Guaranteed-Low-Price Policies Guarantee High Prices, And Can Antitrust Rise To The Challenge?, Aaron S. Edlin

Aaron Edlin

Price-matching policies can be highly anticompetitive. They allow firms to raise their prices above competition levels by discriminating in price between informed and uninformed customers. The resulting high prices can persist even when new firms enter the industry, a fact that gives price matching the potential to be much more socially costly than an ordinary monopoly or cartel. At the same time, widespread entry implies that the agreement among sellers that is typical of a Sherman Act price-fixing case may be absent. In this article, Professor Edlin argues that there is nonetheless an analogy between a seller offering (and agreeing ...

International Trade Between Consumer And Conservationist Countries, M. Scott Taylor, James A. Brander Oct 1997

International Trade Between Consumer And Conservationist Countries, M. Scott Taylor, James A. Brander

M. Scott Taylor

We consider trade between a Consumer country with an open access renewable resource and a Conservationist country that regulates resource harvesting to maximize domestic steady-state utility. In what we call the mild overuse case, the consumer country exports the resource good and suffers steady-state losses from trade, as suggested by the conventional wisdom that weak resource management standards confer a comparative advantage on domestic firms in the resource sector but cause welfare losses. Strikingly, however, when the resource stock is most in jeopardy, the conservationist country exports the resource good in steady state and both countries gain from trade.

Stagflationary Consequences Of Prudent Monetary Policy In A Unionized Economy, Peter Skott Sep 1997

Stagflationary Consequences Of Prudent Monetary Policy In A Unionized Economy, Peter Skott

Peter Skott

Stylised models of the policy game between monetary policy makers and the private sector have suggested that discretionary policy regimes suffer from an inherent inflationary bias and that pre-commitment to a target rate of inflation may be desirable. This paper shows that in the presence of labour unions, the monetary policy game can lead to radically different results: a central bank that is completely indifferent to the level of inflation may obtain outcomes with high employment rates and zero inflation while 'prudent', inflation-averse, central banks generate stagflation with positive inflation and low rates of employment
