Canonizing economic theory how theories and ideas are selected in economics by Christopher D Mackie ( )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Beyond the market designing nonmarket accounts for the United States ( )
9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The national income and product accounts that underlie gross domestic product (GDP), together with other key economic data price and employment statistics are widely used as indicators of how well the nation is doing. GDP, however, is focused on the production of goods and services sold in markets and reveals relatively little about important production in the home and other areas outside of markets. A set of satellite accounts in areas such as health, education, volunteer and home production, and environmental improvement or pollution would contribute to a better understanding of major issues related to economic growth and societal well-being. Beyond the Market: Designing Nonmarket Accounts for the United States hopes to encourage social scientists to make further efforts and contributions in the analysis of nonmarket activities and in corresponding data collection and accounting systems. The book illustrates new data sources and new ideas that have improved the prospects for progress

Intangible assets measuring and enhancing their contribution to corporate value and economic growth ( )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Intangible assets--which include computer software, research and development (R & D), intellectual property, workforce training, and spending to raise the efficiency and brand identification of firms--comprise a subset of services, which, in turn, accounts for three-quarters of all economic activity. Increasingly, intangibles are a principal driver of the competitiveness of U.S.-based firms, economic growth, and opportunities for U.S. workers. Yet, despite these developments, many intangible assets are not reported by companies, and, in the national economic accounts, they are treated as expenses rather than investments. On June 23, 2008, a workshop was held to examine measurement of intangibles and their role in the U.S. and global economies. The workshop, summarized in the present volume, included discussions of a range of policy-relevant topics, including: what intangibles are and how they work; the variety and scale of emerging markets in intangibles; and what the government s role should be in supporting markets and promoting investment in intangibles"--Publisher's description

Subjective well-being : measuring happiness, suffering, and other dimensions of experience by Panel on Measuring Subjective Well-Being in a Policy-Relevant Framework ( )
2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Subjective well-being refers to how people experience and evaluate their lives and specific domains and activities in their lives. This information has already proven valuable to researchers, who have produced insights about the emotional states and experiences of people belonging to different groups, engaged in different activities, at different points in the life course, and involved in different family and community structures. Research has also revealed relationships between people's self-reported, subjectively assessed states and their behavior and decisions. Research on subjective well-being has been ongoing for decades, providing new information about the human condition. During the past decade, interest in the topic among policy makers, national statistical offices, academic researchers, the media, and the public has increased markedly because of its potential for shedding light on the economic, social, and health conditions of populations and for informing policy decisions across these domains. Subjective Well-Being: Measuring Happiness, Suffering, and Other Dimensions of Experience explores the use of this measure in population surveys. This report reviews the current state of research and evaluates methods for the measurement. In this report, a range of potential experienced well-being data applications are cited, from cost-benefit studies of health care delivery to commuting and transportation planning, environmental valuation, and outdoor recreation resource monitoring, and even to assessment of end-of-life treatment options. Subjective Well-Being finds that, whether used to assess the consequence of people's situations and policies that might affect them or to explore determinants of outcomes, contextual and covariate data are needed alongside the subjective well-being measures. This report offers guidance about adopting subjective well-being measures in official government surveys to inform social and economic policies and considers whether research has advanced to a point which warrants the federal government collecting data that allow aspects of the population's subjective well-being to be tracked and associated with changing conditions

Nuclear Officer Retention: MSR and Beyond ( )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
To combat low retention in the nuclear officer community, the Nuclear Officer Incentive Pay (NOIP) program was designed. A 1981 study of nuclear submarine officer retention found a significant, positive effect of NOIP on their retention at the end of the minimum service requirement (MSR). In 1996, the study was broadened to include nuclear-trained surface warfare officers. Again, a significant, positive effect of NOIP on the MSR retention rate was found. This report documents the results of an investigation of historical nuclear officer retention behavior at the MSR decision point and 9 decision points later. It specifies an ACOL-2 model and quantifies the impact of the NOIP retention bonus program on 10 retention decisions. Separate models of retention were estimated for the submarine and surface nuclear officer communities. For both communities, the retention elasticities with respect to the NOIP retention bonus program were small, but significant indicating that 'pay does matter.' These models can be used to assess the retention and cost impacts of alternative NOIP retention strategies
