Accounting For Agent Heterogeneity In Market And Policy Analysis, Konstantinos Giannakas Jan 2019

Accounting For Agent Heterogeneity In Market And Policy Analysis, Konstantinos Giannakas

Zea E-Books

doi:10.13014/K2416V8V

This book presents a multi-market framework of market and policy analysis that explicitly accounts for the empirically relevant heterogeneity in consumer preferences and producer characteristics. The explicit consideration of consumer and producer heterogeneity represents a significant departure from the representative consumer and producer that have been at the center of most of the literature on market and policy analysis, and enables the distributional impacts of changes in market conditions and policies to be fully identified. The framework is used to analyze the system-wide market and welfare impacts of a number of changes in market conditions (like ...


Out-Of-Pocket Cost For Individuals Being Treated For Opioid Dependence In Rutland County, Vermont, Christopher T. Veal Jan 2018

Out-Of-Pocket Cost For Individuals Being Treated For Opioid Dependence In Rutland County, Vermont, Christopher T. Veal

Family Medicine Clerkship Student Projects

Each day more than 140 Americans die from drug overdoses, 91 specifically due to opioids. In Vermont, more than 50 people die each year from opioid poisoning. With insurance coverage being a critical component of Opioid Dependence Recovery, many people seeking treatment are unaware of the financial barriers to recovery- namely the out-of-pocket costs associated with treatment. This study sought to provide insight on the financial impact of Opioid Dependence Treatment on the patient, and provide financial assistance information to the Rutland County community.

Principles Of Macroeconomic Literacy, John Scott Jan 2015

Principles Of Macroeconomic Literacy, John Scott

UNG Press Books

A Macroeconomics text that is economically sound, this textbook makes a unique contribution to the field of Macroeconomics. While outlining the basics of Microeconomics and defining the terms that measure aggregate economic outcomes, this textbook moves beyond the traditional Macroeconomics textbook by placing the individual, that is, the student, at the center of analysis. A course based upon this text is likely to provide real value for the curious student.

It also includes such critical Economics topics—that traditional texts usually ignore—as “Supply and Demand,” Public Choice Theory, Alternative Economic Systems, Subjective Value Theory, and Competing Schools of Economic ...


Perverse Nudges: Minimum Payments And Debt Paydown In Consumer Credit Cards, Jialan Wang, Benjamin J. Keys Apr 2014

Perverse Nudges: Minimum Payments And Debt Paydown In Consumer Credit Cards, Jialan Wang, Benjamin J. Keys

Penn Wharton Public Policy Initiative

Credit card minimum payments can act as an “anchor” that causes consumers to pay less of their debt than they otherwise would, leading to higher balances and interest costs, lower credit card scores, increased bankruptcy risks, and in the aggregate, suboptimally high levels of debt in the macro-economy. Policy “nudges,” which aim to increase the monthly amount that individuals pay on their credit card debt, have had mixed results.


Jobs Don’T Grow On Trees, Nicholas Johnson Apr 2013

Jobs Don’T Grow On Trees, Nicholas Johnson

Undergraduate Research Symposium 2013

Most contemporary macroeconomic models account for unemployment by making the simplifying assumptions that 1) there is an equilibrium level of unemployment and that 2) when the economy is not at that level it will tend towards equilibrium. Implicit in these models is also the assumption that the actual behavior of unemployment does not affect the equilibrium level. This paper joins a growing number of economists pointing out that such assumptions are false: the equilibrium does depend on past behavior, a trait called hysteresis. This paper considers the hysteresis hypothesis by using an iterated version of OLS to construct a series ...
