THE DEADWEIGHT LOSS OF CHRISTMAS by Joel Waldfogel

When economists comment on holiday gift-giving, it is usually to condone the healthy effect of spending on the macroeconomy. However, an important feature of gift-giving is that consumption choices are made by someone other than the final consumer. A pontentially important microeconomic aspect of gift-giving is that gifts may be mismatched with the recipients´ preferences. This paper gives estimates of the deadweight loss of holiday gift-giving based on surveys given to Yale undergraduates.…

ECONOMICS OF SAINTHOOD (By Barro et.al.)

"Our goal is to apply economic reasoning to understand the Church’s choices on numbers and characteristics of saints, gauged by location and socioeconomic attributes of the persons designated as blessed. (...) In the present study, we analyze determinants of rates of canonization and beatification and how these rates varied by pope, including an impact from the cumulated stock of beatifieds who have not yet been canonized. We plan to investigate how the probability of being chosen depends on…

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE AND RESERVATION WAGES By Feldstein & Poterba

The present paper examines the reservation wages reported by a large sample of unemployed individuals in the United States in May 1976. The majority of unemployed individuals report reservation wages´ that are at least as high as the wage they paid on their last job. Approximately one-fourth of all job seekers required a wage that is at least 10 percent higher than the wage on their previous job.  Our econometric evidence shows that level of unemployment benefits relative to previous wages…

CROSS-BORDER SPILLOVER: U.S. GUN LAWS AND VIOLENCE IN MEXICO (Dube, Dube & García Ponce)

To what extent, and under what conditions, does access to arms fuel violent crime? To answer this question, we exploit a unique natural experiment: the 2004 expiration of the U.S. Federal Assault Weapons Ban exerted a spillover on gun supply in Mexican municipios near Texas, Arizona and New Mexico, but not near California, which retained a pre-existing state level ban. We find first that Mexican municipios located closer to the non-California border states experienced differential increases…
