Cleavages Of Political Values Among Generations In Brazil, Editor Jul 1997

Cleavages Of Political Values Among Generations In Brazil, Editor

International Bulletin of Political Psychology

This article was written by Professor of Psychology Fabián Echegaray, Professor of Sociology Paulo Krischke, and Director of Institutional Ethics Aluir Toso. All three researchers are at the Universidad Federal de Santa Cantarina. They posit and provide supporting theory and data that values which are postmaterialist (emphasizing psychological well-being and self-actualization) as opposed to materialist (emphasizing materialistic goods) are more likely to be displayed by younger than older Brazilians and by those with higher than lower social class. Thus older, lower class Brazilians will be most materialist and younger, higher class Brazilians will be most postmaterialist. The paper was presented ...

Relativism, Reflective Equilibrium, And Justice, Justin Schwartz Jan 1997

Relativism, Reflective Equilibrium, And Justice, Justin Schwartz

Justin Schwartz

THIS PAPER IS THE CO-WINNER OF THE FRED BERGER PRIZE IN PHILOSOPHY OF LAW FOR THE 1999 AMERICAN PHILOSOPHICAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE BEST PUBLISHED PAPER IN THE PREVIOUS TWO YEARS.

The conflict between liberal legal theory and critical legal studies (CLS) is often framed as a matter of whether there is a theory of justice that the law should embody which all rational people could or must accept. In a divided society, the CLS critique of this view is overwhelming: there is no such justice that can command universal assent. But the liberal critique of CLS, that it degenerates into ...


Opening Attempt: North Korea And The Rajin-Sonbong Free Trade And Economic Zone, Marcus Noland Jan 1997

Opening Attempt: North Korea And The Rajin-Sonbong Free Trade And Economic Zone, Marcus Noland

Marcus Noland

In response to its economic crisis, North Korea has intensified efforts to attract investment to its Rajin-Sonbong Free Economic and Trade Zone. While this effort to promote the zone represents an important start, the zone clearly has a long way to go before it will be able to attract the type of investment envisioned by its supporters. Lack of infrastructure appears to be a severe impediment to the development of the zone. If the infrastructural hurdle is to be surmounted, it will likely to be due to Chinese interest in developing the zone for transshipment trade associated with the economic ...

External Shocks And The Real Exchange Rate: A Simulation Model For Egypt , Khalifa Hassanain Jan 1997

External Shocks And The Real Exchange Rate: A Simulation Model For Egypt , Khalifa Hassanain

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

In March 1990, the Government of Egypt (GOE) launched a comprehensive economic and social reform program (ERSAP) to strengthen Egypt's ongoing adjustment program. The reform program constituted a major break from the policies pursued in the past, and had the underlying objective of modernizing the country and improving living standards. While the program has scored many successes, many observers of the Egyptian economy believe that the real exchange rate (RE) is currently out of equilibrium;The RE prevailing in a country at any point in time is determined by two main factors: structural (e.g., external capital flows, changes ...


A Spatial Econometric Model For Transboundary Air Pollution Control Treaties: An Analysis Of Noncooperative International Behavior , Keith Allen Sargent Jan 1997

A Spatial Econometric Model For Transboundary Air Pollution Control Treaties: An Analysis Of Noncooperative International Behavior , Keith Allen Sargent

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation develops a theoretical model that explains differences in emission reductions of transboundary air pollutants among nations based on national income, political freedom, the cost of emission reductions, emissions from other countries, the type of pollutant, and the pollutant's dispersion characteristics. The model is based on the theory of the private provision of impure public goods. This theoretical model is then used to derive a reduced form demand equation for emission reductions that can be econometrically estimated using spatial autoregressive techniques for time-series cross-section data;The econometric model is applied to 25 European nations and covers the period ...

Social Security Trust Fund (Sstf), The Government Fiscal Use Of The Sstf, And Intergenerational Equity , Jae Kyeong Kim

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

In this dissertation we pay particular attention to changing share of unfunded and fully funded SS systems and to the alternative government fiscal policies regarding the use of the social security trust fund (SSTF) in order to investigate the resulting economic and intergenerational equity consequences. To carry out this investigation, we develop a computational two periods lived overlapping generations model with production in which a wide range of possible SS arrangements and possible government fiscal uses of the SSTF are incorporated in parameterized form. The parameterization of the SS system permits the comparative dynamic study of a family of SS ...

Gaining The Competitive Advantage: Ontario Universities And The Global Economy, Jonathan Sidney Greene Jan 1997

Gaining The Competitive Advantage: Ontario Universities And The Global Economy, Jonathan Sidney Greene

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

Using a radical political economy approach, this thesis examines how changing global economic and political pressures have forced the Ontario government to reconsider their policies toward higher education. Specifically, this thesis describes and analyses provincial government initiatives toward universities in the period 1985 and 1995, and assesses what these changes mean for understanding the functions of Ontario universities in the present era of global economic change. The thesis argues that Ontario universities historically have served three primary functions: ideological, vocational, and research. In the period under study the Ontario government established an industrial strategy that focused on those industries that ...


The Effects Of For-Profit Health Care Corporations On American Health Care, Erik Leaver Jan 1997

The Effects Of For-Profit Health Care Corporations On American Health Care, Erik Leaver

Honors Theses, 1963-2015

My thesis investigated the implications associated with the increasing numbers of investor-owned hospitals in America's hospital market. Traditionally, most hospitals have been non-profit, and I wanted to analyze whether the drive for profits would compromise the care that hospitals provide to their patients. I studied the differences and similarities between non-profit and for-profit ownership types in three key areas: quality, access, and efficiency. I discovered through my research that the differences between the two ownership types are becoming increasingly difficult to identify. I concluded that for-profit hospitals have created a more competitive environment, and this increased competition will help ...
