A Model Of The Implementation Of Quality Management Systems For Credence Attributes, Corinna Noelke, Julie Caswell Jul 2000

A Model Of The Implementation Of Quality Management Systems For Credence Attributes, Corinna Noelke, Julie Caswell

Julie Caswell

We develop a model of the impact of food quality management systems (QMS) on competitiveness and markets. QMS seek to control the quality of a product as determined by the array of individual attributes it possesses. To date only a few studies have attempted to better understand the effect of the introduction of quality management systems. No model has been introduced which captures the interactions within the supply chain and at the interface with consumers when these systems are introduced.

Consumer Choice Of Food Products And The Implications For Price Competition And For An Analysis Of Government Policy, Julie Caswell May 2000

Consumer Choice Of Food Products And The Implications For Price Competition And For An Analysis Of Government Policy, Julie Caswell

Julie Caswell

In this paper we develop a random coefficients discrete choice model to investigate what affected consumer demand for prepared frozen meals from 1993 to 1998, when government regulation of nutrition labeling changed from voluntary to mandatory. The model links individual consumer characteristics (e.g., income, knowledge about nutrition, nutrition label use) to underlying product characteristics (e.g., price, nutritional attributes) and allows us to obtain preference parameters for each consumer as well as demand elasticities with regard to product characteristics for each product considered. We find that prices, advertising, price reductions, and consumer preferences for taste have a significant effect ...

Operations, Information and Decisions Papers

The effect of alternative property rights regimes on the choice between taking an object and acquiring it via a consensual exchange is experimentally explored in a two-period screening game. Results are generally consistent with equilibrium predictions, suggesting that property rights regimes have a significant impact on observed behavior.


Concentration, Capacity And Market Power In An Evolutionary Labor Market, Leigh Tesfatsion Jan 2000

Concentration, Capacity And Market Power In An Evolutionary Labor Market, Leigh Tesfatsion

Economics Presentations, Posters and Proceedings

This paper reports on an experimental study of the relationship between job capacity, job concentration, and market power in the context of an agent-based computational model of a labor market. Job capacity is measured by the ratio of potential job openings to potential work offers, and job concentration is measured by the ratio of work suppliers to employers. For each experimental treatment, work suppliers and employers repeatedly seek preferred work-site partners based on continually updated expected utility, engage in work-site interactions modelled as prisoner's dilemma games, and evolve their work-site behaviors over time. The main finding is that job ...

Targeting Resource Conservation Expenditiures, Junjie Wu, Richard M. Adams, David Zilberman, Bruce A. Babcock

Economics Publications

Payments to landowners are a major vehicle to assure resource conservation and environmental protection. Examples of payment programs are listed in the sidebar, page. 34. Some of these programs (1, 2 and 3) compensate resource owners for changing resource uses while others (4, 5 and 6) involve the outright purchase of a resource. For example, the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) has compensated landowners to retire 37 million acres of highly erodible cropland at a current annual cost of approximately $1.9 billion, and the Nature Conservancy has protected more than 11 million acres of environmentally valuable land in the United ...
