  • Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? Why do drug dealers still live with their moms? How much do parents really matter? What kind of impact did Roe v. Wade have on violent crime? These may not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much heralded scholar who studies the stuff and riddles of everyday life-;from cheating and crime to sports and child rearing-;and whose conclusions regularly turn the conventional wisdom on its head....

  • This book challenges the conventional wisdom that natural resource wealth promotes autocracy. Oil and other forms of mineral wealth can promote both authoritarianism and democracy, the book argues, but they do so through different mechanisms; an understanding of these different mechanisms can help elucidate when either the authoritarian or democratic effects of resource wealth will be relatively strong.

  • Social scientists teach that politicians favor groups that are organized over those that are not. Representation through Taxation challenges this conventional wisdom. Emphasizing that there are limits to what organized interests can cred- ibly promise in return for favorable treatment, Gehlbach shows that politicians may instead give preference to groups – organized or not – that by their na- ture happen to take actions that are politically valuable.

  • Too often, our failure to succeed as crafts professionals lies not in the absence of talent or skills, but in resistance to acquiring a knowledge of sound business practices—especially those related to law and contracts. Like it or not, artists and artisans are as involved as other professionals in business and business law. Because art is at best a precarious means of life support, we require familiarity with applicable law in order to proceed easily and confidently in business transactions.

  • USER APPLICATIONS VERTICAL VERSUS HORIZONTAL The trade press is rife with conventional wisdom reports on vertical versus horizontal markets. ARDIS is “known” to focus only on the verticals because of its “heritage and infrastructure limitations”1 or its “genetic” differences.2 BSWD is thought to focus only on horizontals. In reality, during 1996 roughly 90% of BSWD’s revenues came from vertical applications.3 CDPD carriers work for the horizontal market with credit card processing4 or Smartphone plans, but sell in the verticals, especially public safety.

  • The performance of current transport systems is inadequate when viewed in terms of economic efficiency, sustainability, and safety. Towards Better Performing Transport Networks examines the tools that are necessary to effectively measure these systems and those that are required to improve them.

  • Many policy makers and researchers believe that voluntary cost pooling of employees across small firms will make insurance affordable to these firms. This is possible because, on average, expected costs of employees at small firms are only slightly higher than large firms. We show that risk pooling across firms may not work as well as this conventional wisdom would suggest, because of large between-firm heterogeneity in employee characteristics at small firms.

  • Business leaders can put aspiration into practice when they pursue their vocation, motivated by much more than financial success. When they integrate the gifts of the spiritual life, the virtues and ethical social principles into their life and work, they may overcome the divided life, and receive the grace to foster the integral development of all business stakeholders. The Church calls upon the business leader to receive—humbly acknowledging what God has done for him or her —and to give—entering into communion with others to make the world a better place.

  • Conventional wisdom is that an increase in the target Fed funds rate leads to an imme- diate increase in market interest rates, and a fall in bond prices; yet evidence for this view is elusive. Cook and Hahn (1989) documented a strong response in the 1970s, but regressions using data from the 1980s and 1990s show little, if any, impact of Fed policy on interest rates. Roley and Sellon (1995), for example, conclude that “although casual observation suggests a close connection:::, the relationship between Fed actions and long-term interest rates appears much looser and more variable.
