The effects of minimum wages on the health of working teenagers.

Appl Econ Lett 2017 16;24(16):1127-1130. Epub 2016 Dec 16.

La Follette School of Public Affairs, University of Wisconsin - Madison, Madison, WI, USA.

This article examines the effect of minimum wage increases on the self-reported health of teenage workers. We use a difference-in-differences estimation strategy and data from the Current Population Survey, and disaggregate the sample by race/ethnicity and gender to uncover the differential effects of changes in the minimum wage on health. We find that white women are more likely to report better health with a minimum wage increase while Hispanic men report worse health. Read More

Chess players' fame versus their merit.

Appl Econ Lett 2015 Dec 30;22(18):1499-1504. Epub 2015 Apr 30.

Department of Electrical Engineering, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1594, USA.

We investigate a pool of international chess title holders born between 1901 and 1943. Using Elo ratings, we compute for every player his expected score in a game with a randomly selected player from the pool. We use this figure as the player's merit. Read More

Spousal Employment and Intra-Household Bargaining Power.

Appl Econ Lett 2014 May;21(8):560-563

University of Colorado Boulder.

This paper considers the relationship between work status and decision-making power of the head of household and his spouse. I use household fixed effects models to address the possibility that spousal work status maybe correlated with unobserved factors that also affect bargaining power within the home. Consistent with the hypothesis that greater economic resources yield greater bargaining power, I find that the spouse of the head of household is more likely to be involved in decisions when she has been employed.

The wealth, health and wellbeing of Ireland's older people before and during the economic crisis.

Appl Econ Lett 2014 Jul 6;21(10):675-678. Epub 2014 Mar 6.

TILDA, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.

The economic crisis of 2008/9 was felt more acutely in Ireland relative to elsewhere and culminated in the international bailout in 2010. Given the economic collapse, Ireland provides an ideal case-study of the link between wealth collapses and movements in variables such as health and well-being. Using nationally-representative samples of older people collected before and during the crisis, we show that mean net assets fell by 45 percent between 2006/7 and 2012/13. Read More

Just passing through: the effect of the Master Settlement Agreement on estimated cigarette tax price pass-through.

Appl Econ Lett 2013 ;20(4):353-357

Department of Risk, Insurance, & Healthcare Management, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA 19122, USA.

In 1998, cigarette manufacturers and state attorneys general in the United States settled a group of lawsuits in an agreement known as the Master Settlement Agreement (MSA). Among the provisions of this agreement were a set of mandated escrow payments to the states that would be based on cigarette sales. The result of these provisions is that the apparent relationship between taxes and prices changed substantially following implementation of the MSA. Read More
