Josephus Daniels his life & times by Lee A Craig( )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As a longtime leader of the Democratic Party and key member of Woodrow Wilson's cabinet, Josephus Daniels was one of the most influential progressive politicians in the country, and as secretary of the navy during the First World War, he became one of the most important men in the world. Before that, Daniels revolutionized the newspaper industry in the South, forever changing the relationship between politics and the news media. Lee A. Craig, an expert on economic history, delves into Daniels's extensive archive to inform this nuanced and eminently readable biography, following Daniels's rise to power in North Carolina and chronicling his influence on twentieth-century politics. A man of great contradictions, Daniels--an ardent prohibitionist, free trader, and Free Silverite--made a fortune in private industry yet served as a persistent critic of unregulated capitalism. He championed progressive causes like the graded public school movement and antitrust laws even as he led North Carolina's white supremacy movement. Craig pulls no punches in his definitive biography of this political powerhouse"--
To sow one acre more : childbearing and farm productivity in the antebellum north by Lee A Craig( Book )
7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"No one doubts that children supplied valuable labor on nineteenth-century American farms. But the value of that labor varied, and the children themselves represented economic costs as well as benefits. How did children affect a farmer's choices? Did bigger farms mean, in effect, bigger families? Drawing on census, wage, and other data, Lee A. Craig addresses such questions in offering a new econometric interpretation of productivity and fertility in the antebellum North." "In contrast to prevailing scholarly opinion, Craig finds that children did not provide a noteworthy advantage on the frontier, though they did so in the settled but rocky-soiled Northeast. He concludes that a farmer's economic strategy depended not so much on the size of his holding or his age (and fertility) as it did on regional agricultural patterns and proximity to market. These findings contradict the now-dominant view that farmers adjusted output according to the number of available laborers - including children. Distinguishing between the Northeast and Old Northwest, Craig constructs a model that incorporates the advantages and monetary disadvantages of child labor and accounts for the drop in fertility in regions where opportunities for children off the farm were greater than those at home."--Jacket
A history of public sector pensions in the United States, by Robert L Clark( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A History of Public Sector Pensions in the United States offers a comprehensive assessment of the political and financial dimensions of public sector pensions from the colonial period until the emergence of modern retirement plans in the twentieth century. The authors emphasize how retirement plans can help achieve human resource objectives, how public sector pension policy has sometimes been influenced by other government objectives, and how early pension plans were funded."

The integration of the European economy 1850-1913 by Lee A Craig( Book )
13 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume documents the economic integration of the European economy over the period 1850-1913. The authors argue that by 1913 the national economies of Western and Central Europe were so sufficiently integrated in most important aspects that one could refer to as composing a 'European economy' for all practical purposes. The study concentrates on the macroeconomic aspects of this integration, although from time to time it digresses into microeconomic topics, as the situation requires. By 'macroeconomic aspects' the authors refer both to the nature of the data that they consider and to the econometric tests that they apply to these data
State and local retirement plans in the United States by Robert L Clark( Book )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
State and Local Retirement Plans in the United States explains how economic and political events have shaped the development of pension plans in the last century, and it argues that changes in the structure and generosity of these plans will continue to shape policy and funding in the future. It also brings to bear a new rationale to the policies behind public sector pension plans. The authors use the history of how early public pension plans were established, how they matured and how they have grown in generosity to analyse what changes may be expected in years to come. Unique in its scope, t
Were free southern farmers "driven to indolence" by slavery? : a stochastic production frontier approach by Elizabeth B Field-Hendrey( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: Antebellum critics of slavery argued that it was responsible for the relative inefficiency of free southern farms. We examine this issue, employing a stochastic production function, which allows us to distinguish between technological superiority and technical inefficiency, and controlling for crop mix, which we treat as endogenous. We find that although large plantations enjoyed a technological advantage, slave farms were less efficient than free northern farms but more efficient than free southern farms. In addition, free southern farms were significantly less efficient than comparable northern farms
Nutritional status and agricultural surpluses in the antebellum United States by Lee A Craig( Book )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: We model the relationship between local agricultural surpluses, nutritional status, and height, and we test the hypothesis that adult height is positively correlated with the local production of nutrition in infancy. We test the hypothesis on two samples of Union Army recruits - one consisting of white recruits and the other black recruits. The white sample shows that a local protein surplus one standard deviation above the mean yielded an additional 0.10 inches in adult height, and a similar deviation in surplus calorie production yielded an additional 0.20 inches. For blacks, however, the effect was probably negligible
Development, health, nutrition, and mortality : the case of the 'antebellum puzzle' in the United States by Michael R Haines( Book )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: The Antebellum Puzzle' describes the situation of declining stature and rising mortality in the three decades prior to the American Civil War (1861-65). It is labeled a puzzle, since this period was one of rapid economic growth and development in the United States. Much of the debate regarding this puzzle has centered on whether the American diet, both in terms of protein and caloric intake in the mid-nineteenth century. But the mortality environment also appears to have worsened (or at least failed to improve), a situation associated with rapid urbanization, commercialization, transport improvement, and increased geographic mobility. The disease environment was being nationalized and internationalized. This paper analyzes the relationship between local agricultural surpluses, nutritional status, mortality conditions, and adult heights. Employing a sample of the muster records of Union Army recruits (1861-65) as well as data from the published population and agricultural censuses of 1840 and mortality data from the 1850 census of population, it tests the hypothesis that adult height is positively correlated with local production of nutrients in early childhood and negatively correlated with local mortality conditions, urbanization, proximity to transport, and population mobility. Results indicate that, although the United States was experiencing robust Smithian' economic growth induced by transport improvements and widening markets nation was also suffering from serious negative externalities which affected the health and longevity of the population
