Fiscal adjustment and contingent government liabilities : case studies of the Czech Republic and Macedonia by Hana Polackova Brixi( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 67 libraries worldwide
Governments' contingent liabilities increase fiscal vulnerability, but are omitted in traditional measures of the current deficit. In the Czech Republic this omission may mean that fiscal adjustment has been overstated by 3 to 4 percent of annual GDP, with future budgets having to pay for past guarantees. The stock of existing contingent liabilities in Macedonia could add 2 to 4 percent of GDP to that country's future deficits
Household labor supply, unemployment, and minimum wage legislation by Kaushik Basu( Book )

How child labor and child schooling interact with adult labor by Ranjan Ray( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 65 libraries worldwide
The link between household poverty and child labor is much stronger in Pakistan than in Peru. Providing good schools in South Asia could help reduce child labor. The link between child labor and adult labor markets varies with gender
Conscription and crime by Sebastián Galiani( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 63 libraries worldwide
The initiation in criminal activities is, typically, a young phenomenon. The study of the determinants of entry into criminal activities should pay attention to major events affecting youth. In many countries, one of these important events is mandatory participation in military service. The objective of this study is to estimate the causal relationship between mandatory participation in military service and crime. The authors exploit the random assignment through a draft lottery of young men to conscription in Argentina to identify this causal effect. Their results suggest that participation in military service increased the likelihood of developing a criminal record in adulthood (in particular, for property and weapon-related crimes)

The indirect approach by David P Ellerman( file )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 57 libraries worldwide
Aid and conditionalities are the "carrot and stick" of the conventional direct approach to fostering economic development. Considering the outcomes of the conventional approach, it might be worthwhile to explore alternative indirect approaches that focus on enabling clients to act more autonomously, rather than try for fuller control of clients' actions with improved carrots and sticks
The costs and benefits of regulation implications for developing countries by J. Luis Guasch( file )

The causes of government and the consequences for growth and well-being by Simon Commander( file )

Helping people help themselves towards a theory of autonomy-compatible help by David P Ellerman( file )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 53 libraries worldwide
How can an outside party ("helper") assist those attempting to undertake autonomous activities (the "doers") without overriding or undercutting their autonomy? The answers could have implications for the helping agency itself

This paper inaugurates the mathematical treatment of property theory, proving the two fundamental theorems for the property system that correspond to the two fundamental theorems for the competitive price system

Child labor across the developing world : patterns and correlations by Jean Farès( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
The aim of this study is two-fold. First, based on summary data at the country-level for an unusually large set of developing countries originally obtained from household sample surveys conducted between 1993 and 2003, the authors construct a detailed profile of child economic activity and child labor, attempting, wherever the data permit, to identify similarities and differences across regions and between genders. Second, they link the country-level data on child economic activity and child labor to country-level indicators of the state of economic and social development in the same time period in order to (1) ascertain if cross-country correlations previously identified in the literature are found in the data, and (2) illumine other possible correlations that may exist. As part of this exercise, the authors examine one important relationship that has thus far not been directly investigated in the literature, namely, the cross-country correlation between child labor, agriculture, and poverty
