Moral hazard and the composition of transfers : theory with an application to foreign aid by J. Atsu Amegashie( Book )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and German and held by 19 libraries worldwide
The paper presents a theoretical and empirical analysis of a donor's choice of the composition of unrestricted and in-kind/restricted transfers to a recipient and how this composition is adjusted in response to changes in the moral hazard behavior of the recipient. In-kind or restricted transfers may be used, among others, to control a recipient's moral hazard behavior but may be associated with deadweight losses. Within the context of foreign aid, we use a canonical political agency model to construct a simple signaling game between a possibly corrupt politician in a recipient country and a donor to illustrate the donor's optimal choice of tied (restricted) and untied foreign aid. We clarify the condition under which a reduction in the recipient's moral hazard behavior (i.e., improvement in the level of governance) leads to a fall in the proportion of tied aid. We test the predictions of our theoretical analysis using data on the composition of foreign aid by multilateral and bilateral donors
Le sacrement constitutionnel by Bazoumana Ouattara( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in French and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Cinq nouvelles où l'auteur développe plusieurs thèmes : les dérives identitaires, la pauvreté, le libertinage, les coutumes, la sorcellerie, etc et de nombreuses tranches de vie. Dans la première nouvelle, la disparition de Kagasho, chef mythique et fondateur de Sokala-Sobara, se pose le problème de sa succession au trône royal. Les quatre autres se concentrent sur le thème de l'école et les diverses fortunes de la vie estudiantine (réformes académiques, grèves etc.)
An empirical inquiry into the nature of welfarism by J. Atsu Amegashie( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Economists typically evaluate policies based on how such policies affect individuals' utilities. We follow this approach by taking a welfarist view of the USA's espoused policy of promoting liberty in other parts of the world. However, we take a nuanced view by investigating the type of welfare that the USA promotes. On one hand, we identify a direct value of liberty in the sense that basic human rights like freedom of speech, freedom to express one's religious beliefs, and freedom to form associations improve welfare. In this case, liberty is directly consumed. We argue that this improvement in welfare comes simply from giving people greater levels of freedom and is independent of the existence of other inputs. On the other hand, we identify an indirect value of liberty because liberty is indirectly consumed insofar as it is an input in an economy's production function and therefore affects welfare through its effect on an economy's capacity to produce goods and services. However, unlike the direct effect mentioned above, we argue that liberty alone cannot produce this indirect effect and therefore needs complementary inputs like investments in physical and human capital. We identify foreign aid as a source of information for investigating a donor's direct and indirect values of liberty. In our empirical work, our identification strategy exploits the aforementioned difference in the characteristics of the direct and indirect values of liberty to test whether the USA's foreign aid allocation is motivated by a direct value or and/or an indirect value for liberty. As a test of validity, we apply our methodology to the aid allocation of donors who, we believe, are different from the USA. These are Arab donors and Scandinavian countries (i.e., Sweden, Norway, and Denmark). We also include the UK. -- donor ; foreign aid ; liberty ; welfarism
Modelling the long run determinants of private investment in Senegal by Bazoumana Ouattara( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
This paper investigates the determinants of private investment in Senegal over the period of 1970-2000. It first tests the variables for unit root using two, relatively, new tests namely the Dickey-Fuller generalised least square de-trending test proposed by Elliot et al. (1996) and the Ng-Perron test following Ng and Perron (2001). The long run private investment equation is derived using the Johansen cointegration techniques (Johansen, 1988; Johansen and Juselius, 1990) and the newly developed bounds test approach proposed by Pesaran et al. (2001). In both cases, the results indicate that public investment, real income and foreign aid flows affect positively private investment, whilst the impact of credit to private sector and terms of trade is negative

Mécanismes moléculaires impliqués dans le développement des dyskinésies induites par la lévodopa : implication des récepteurs glutamatergiques by Bazoumana Ouattara( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 1 library worldwide
Depuis plus de 4 décennies, la lévodopa (L-dopa) demeure la pierre angulaire du traitement pharmacologique de la maladie de Parkinson. Malheureusement après 4 à 5 années de traitement chronique, des patients développent des effets secondaires à la L-dopa comme les complications motrices de type détérioration de fin de dose (wearing-off) et dyskinésies. Ces complications motrices seraient dues en partie à une stimulation non-physiologique des récepteurs dopaminergiques. L'hyperactivité des récepteurs du glutamate au striatum est aussi une des hypothèses plausibles expliquant les dyskinésies induites par la L-dopa. Cette seconde hypothèse a été l'objet principal de ce travail. L'étude a porté d'une part sur des cerveaux d'humains parkinsoniens traités à la L-dopa et ayant des complications motrices, et d'autre part sur des modèles de singes MPTP. Les singes de l'espèce Macaca fascicularis ont été ovariectomisés puis rendus parkinsoniens avec la neurotoxine MPTP. Les singes MPTP traités avec la L-dopa seule ont tous développé des dyskinésies. Par contre ceux traités avec la L-dopa + CI-1041 (antagoniste NR2B/NMDA) ou L-dopa + cabergoline (agoniste D2) n'en avaient pas. Les singes traités avec L-dopa + Ro 61-8048 (inhibiteur de la kynurénine-3-hydroxylase) ou L-dopa + AFQ056 (antagoniste mGluR5) avaient de faibles dyskinésies. Nous avons investigué dans le striatum et le globus pallidus des cerveaux humains et des primates non-humains les récepteurs NR2A/NMDA, NR2B/NMDA, AMPA et mGluR5 en utilisant l'autoradiographie d'un ligand spécifique à chacun de ces récepteurs du glutamate. Par hybridation in situ, nous avons évalué les niveaux d'ARNm de mGluR5 et PSD95 puis par immunobuvardage les taux protéiques de PSD95 et l'état de phosphorylation d'ERKl/2. pERKl/ERKl et pERK2/ERK2 diminuaient quand les taux de L-dopa et dopamine diminuaient dans le striatum. Ro 61-8048, en inhibant l'activité de la kynurénine-3-hydroxylase, augmente la synthèse de l'acide kynurénique pour bloquer les récepteurs du glutamate. Ceci a réduit la phosphorylation d'ERKl/2. L'activation d'ERKl/2 est donc modulée par la dopamine et le glutamate. NR2B/NMDA et mGluR5 augmentent chez les animaux dyskinétiques. Cette augmentation est empêchée par les traitements antidyskinétiques. mGluR5 activé, induit une cascade de signalisation qui renforce l'activité des récepteurs ionotropiques AMPA et NMDA qui sont stabilisés dans la membrane plasmique par la protéine PSD95. Nos résultats démontrent que les récepteurs du glutamate sont impliqués dans la pathogénèse des dyskinésies induites par la L-dopa
Aid, debt burden and government fiscal behaviour in Côte d'Ivoire ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This paper examines the impact of foreign aid on public sector fiscal behaviour in Côte d'Ivoire. A special interest is the relationship between aid, debt servicing and debt, given that Côte d'Ivoire is a highly indebted country. The theoretical model employed differs from those of previous studies by highlighting the interaction between debt servicing and the other fiscal variables. This model is estimated using 1975-99 time series data. Key findings are that the bulk of aid is allocated to debt servicing and that aid is associated with increases in the level of public debt
