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.


Mental Health Parity: National And State Perspectives: A Report, Bruce Levin, Ardis Hanson, Richard Coe, Ann Taylor Oct 2011

Mental Health Parity: National And State Perspectives: A Report, Bruce Levin, Ardis Hanson, Richard Coe, Ann Taylor

Bruce Lubostsky Levin, DrPH, MPH

This report contains a summary of the available information on the key issues involved in parity initiatives: the experiences at the national level (see “National Parity Initiatives”) as well as the experiences of other states that have developed and/or implemented parity legislation (see “State Parity Initiatives”); the cost experiences resulting in implementing parity for mental disorders (see Costs”); and implications and suggestions for proceeding with the development of mental health parity in Florida (see "Evaluating Benefits from Mental Health Parity” and “Conclusions”).

Using Auctions To Divest Generation Assets, Peter Cramton, Lisa J. Cameron, Robert Wilson Dec 1997

Using Auctions To Divest Generation Assets, Peter Cramton, Lisa J. Cameron, Robert Wilson

Peter Cramton

In most states, ratepayers will compensate utilities for their stranded costs. As a result, these costs must be measured as accurately as possible, in a manner that is easily understood by all concerned parties. We describe the options for measuring stranded costs and argue that a simultaneous ascending auction is the best approach.

Descentralización Y Participación Social, Fernando Carrión Mena Dec 1997

Descentralización Y Participación Social, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las principales características del Estado Nacional en el Ecuador pueden definirse en los siguientes términos: Estado unitario, régimen presidencialista, organización descentralizada (a través de provincias y cantones) y sectorializada (ministerios), y estructura funcional (ejecutivo, legislativo y judicial).

Todo Estado unitario, en su integración, da prioridad a los siguientes criterios:

1. Mayor importancia de lo sectorial sobre lo territorial, lo cual significa que la intervención estatal se la hace desde ciertos recortes de la realidad definidos por el centro y hacia la periferia. En la actualidad el desarrollo nacional descansa en las políticas sectoriales, descuidando las regionales, provinciales y locales.

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 ...


Storm-Time Dependence Of Equatorial Disturbance Dynamo Zonalelectric Fields, L. Scherliess, Bela G. Fejer Nov 1997

Storm-Time Dependence Of Equatorial Disturbance Dynamo Zonalelectric Fields, L. Scherliess, Bela G. Fejer

Bela G. Fejer

We use Jicamarca radar observations of F region vertical plasma drifts and auroral electrojet indices during 1968–1988 to study the characteristics and temporal evolution of equatorial disturbance dynamo zonal electric fields. These electric fields result from the dynamo action of storm time winds and/or thermospheric composition changes driven by enhanced energy deposition into the high-latitude ionosphere during geomagnetically active conditions. The equatorial vertical drift perturbations last for periods of up to 30 hours after large increases in the high-latitude currents. On the average, this process can be described by two basic components with time delays of about 1 ...

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.

Package Bidding For Spectrum Licenses, Peter Cramton, John Mcmillan, Paul Milgrom, Bradley Miller, Bridger Mitchell, Daniel Vincent, Robert Wilson Oct 1997

Package Bidding For Spectrum Licenses, Peter Cramton, John Mcmillan, Paul Milgrom, Bradley Miller, Bridger Mitchell, Daniel Vincent, Robert Wilson

Peter Cramton

The FCC was an innovator in adopting the rules of the simultaneous ascending-price auction for its sales of spectrum licenses. While these rules have performed well in the auctions conducted so far (and would perform even better with the design improvements suggested in our first report), there are two inherent limitations in any design that seeks to assign and price the licenses individually. First, such designs create strategic incentives for bidders interested in multiple licenses that are substitutes to reduce their demands for some of the licenses in order to reduce the final prices of the others; this is the ...


Stylizedfacts Of Government Finance In The G-7, Riccardo Fiorito Oct 1997

Stylizedfacts Of Government Finance In The G-7, Riccardo Fiorito

riccardo fiorito

The stylized facts of government finance in the G-7 show that revenues lag real GDP procyclically, while government spending mostly fail to lead the economy pro-cyclically. This is shown using detailed spending and revenue variables for quarterly, hp-filtered, data. Government deficits are always counter-cyclical bu there is little evidence that stabilization is equally successful in stimulating the economy before shocks materialize.


Women, Technology, And Rural Life: Some Recent Literature, Pamela Riney-Kehrberg Oct 1997

Women, Technology, And Rural Life: Some Recent Literature, Pamela Riney-Kehrberg

Pamela Riney-Kehrberg

Historical study of American farm women has had a relatively short life, reaching back approximately twenty years. Rural women rarely existed in earlier scholarship that reserved the categories of farmer and farming for males. Agricultural history thus manifested itself as a story of men and their tools, stretching back historiographically into the early days of the 20th century. Although in 1953 Jared van Wagenen described in careful detail many of the physical processes of farming in The Golden Age of Homespun, the women's work from which he derived his title occupied less than twenty pages at the end of ...
