Experimentos con los principios económicos by Theodore C Bergstrom( )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2022 in Spanish and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Estábamos hartos. Estábamos cansados de dar clase a estudiantes soñolientos que querían "repasar" lo que ya habían subrayado en el libro de texto para poder recordar las "ideas clave" de cara al examen. Queríamos que nuestros estudiantes tuvieran un aprendizaje activo, aprovechar su curiosidad natural por los temas económicos induciéndolos a pensar cuáles eran las preguntas importantes antes de tratar de darles las respuestas. Constatamos que la realización de experimentos económicos en clase, con debates antes, durante y después de los experimentos, era una manera eficaz, y a la vez amena, de pasar del aprendizaje pasivo al aprendizaje activo. Experimentos con los principios económicos es el fruto de estos esfuerzos." -Extracto del prólogo de los autores. Este libro está pensado para un primer curso de economía. Puede utilizarse como texto principal en un curso de introducción o como complemento de un libro de texto tradicional de principios de economía. El libro alterna los "capítulos experimentales" con "capítulos analíticos". La alternancia de un experimento y un debate marca el ritmo de la clase. En el laboratorio, los estudiantes participan y experimentan en un tipo de mercado, por ejemplo, o en una determinada interacción social. Los informes de laboratorio que tienen que escribir les permiten poner en orden sus reflexiones sobre lo que ha ocurrido. En la clase siguiente, están preparados para debatir los resultados experimentales y examinar las explicaciones teóricas de estos resultados. Los capítulos experimentales normalmente contienen una introducción, las instrucciones para realizar un experimento en clase y un "informe de laboratorio". Los experimentos se realizan "a mano", sin ordenadores o aparatos complejos. En el informe de laboratorio, los alumnos anotan los resultados, realizan un análisis elemental de los datos y responden a algunas preguntas que los animan a pensar sobre la importancia de lo que han observado. Los capítulos analíticos introducen las teorías económicas que explican, en todo o en parte, los resultados experimentales. También contienen trabajos para casa en los que se pide a los alumnos que comparen los resultados experimentales con las predicciones teóricas y analicen las consecuencias que las teorías y los experimentos permiten extraer para su aplicación a los problemas del mundo real. Los módulos de análisis están pensados para ser lo suficientemente independientes unos de otros de tal manera que los profesores puedan cambiar el orden de presentación de los temas u omitir los que deseen. Para un estudiante, cursar una asignatura de economía experimental es un poco como estar invitado a comer en casa de un caníbal. Puede ocurrir que sea simplemente un comensal, que sea parte de la comida o que sea ambas cosas a la vez. En un curso de laboratorio de ciencias naturales, los estudiantes tienen que mezclar sustancias químicas o andar tirando de poleas o diseccionar la proverbial rana, pero siempre son ellos quienes experimentan y nunca son los sujetos del experimento. En cambio, en los experimentos que se realizan en esta clase, los estudiantes son a la vez los participantes en los mercados, y los observadores científicos que tratan de entender los resultados de estos mismos mercados experimentales. Es difícil imaginar que un químico pueda ponerse en el lugar de una molécula de hidrógeno. Es improbable que un biólogo que estudia la conducta animal sepa lo que sienten los patos. El estudiante de este curso es más afortunado. Estudiará la conducta y las interacciones de la gente en situaciones económicas. Y siendo uno de estos agentes económicos, podrá experimentar de primera mano los problemas con los que se encuentra uno de ellos. Sospechamos que su experiencia como participante en el experimento le permitirá comprender los principios económicos casi tanto como su análisis como observador del experimento

The efficiency of the supply of public education by Theodore C Bergstrom( )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question of whether governments spend too much or too little has been a frequent subject of debate, but has been infrequently analyzed.This paper proposes and then applies a methodology which checks to see whether the "Samuelson condition" for the efficient provision of local public education is satisfied, i.e. whether the sum over the school district of individual marginal rates of substitution between public education and a private numeraire equals the marqinal rate of technical substitution between these two qoods. The econometric methodology uses a micro-based approach to the estimation of marginal rate of substitution functions which accounts for possible biases associated with the selection of school districts by individual households

One chance in a million altruism and the bone marrow registry by Theodore C Bergstrom( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transplants of donated stem cells save the lives of many patients with blood diseases. Donation is somewhat painful, but rarely has lasting adverse effects. Patients can accept transplants only from donors with compatible immune systems. Those lacking a sibling match must seek donations from the population at large. The probability that two persons of the same race are compatible is less than 1/10,000. Health authorities maintain a registry of several million genetically-tested potential donors who have agreed to donate if asked. We study the peculiar structure of voluntary public good provision represented by the registry, and compare the marginal benefits and marginal costs of expanding the registry

Demographics and the political sustainability of pay-as-you-go social security by Theodore C Bergstrom( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The net present value of costs and benefits from a pay-as-you-go social security system are negative for young people and positive for the elderly. If people all vote their financial self-interest, there will be a pivotal age such that those who are younger favor smaller social security benefits and those who are older will favor larger benefits. For persons of each age and sex, we estimate the expected present value gained or lost from a small permanent increase in the amount of benefits, where the cost of these benefits is divided equally among the population of working age. Assuming that everyone votes his or her long run financial self-interest, and calculating the number of voters in the population of each age and sex, we can determine whether there is majority support for an increase or a decrease in social security benefits. We use statistics on the age distribution and mortality rates for the United States to explore the sensitivity of political support for social security to alternative assumptions about the discount rate, excess burden in taxation, voter participation rates, and birth, death, and migration rates. We find that a once-and-for-all decrease in benefits would be defeated by a majority of selfish voters under a wide range of parameters. We also study the predicted majority outcomes of votes on changing the retirement age
