Description : In School Choice and the Future of American Democracy, Scott Franklin Abernathy shows what is lost in the school choice debate. Abernathy looks at parents as citizens who exert power over the educational system through everything from their votes on school budgets to their membership on school boards. Challenging the assumption that public schools will improve when confronted with market-based reforms, Abernathy examines the possibility that public schools will become more disconnected and isolated as civic life is privatized. Scott Abernathy takes up big questions and provides answers grounded in the complex reality of policy and politics. School Choice and the Future of American Democracy is a book written for those who understand that the world does not fit the simple explanations too often put forward. --Clarence Stone, Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland, and Research Professor, George Washington University Will school choice revive or eviscerate democratic processes and institutions? Will it narrow or exacerbate the range of educational inequities? This book takes several differently angled slices into these questions and draws intriguing answers. --Jeffrey R. Henig, Teachers College, Columbia University, and author of Rethinking School Choice: Limits of the Market Metaphor Through extensive research and refreshingly impartial analysis, Scott Abernathy probes how the use of market principles to reform public schools affects democratic citizenship. Treating citizens first and foremost as customers, he finds, threatens civic engagement and the well-being of schools, especially in the nation's neediest communities. This thoughtful and balanced appraisal is must-reading for those concerned about the future of American education and democracy. --Suzanne Mettler, Alumni Associate Professor, Syracuse University, and author of Soldiers to Citizens: The G.I. Bill and the Making of the Greatest Generation Scott Franklin Abernathy is Assistant Professor of Political Science, University of Minnesota

Description : In Law and Public Choice, Daniel Farber and Philip Frickey present a remarkably rich and accessible introduction to the driving principles of public choice. In this, the first systematic look at the implications of social choice for legal doctrine, Farber and Frickey carefully review both the empirical and theoretical literature about interest group influence and provide a nonmathematical introduction to formal models of legislative action. Ideal for course use, this volume offers a balanced and perceptive analysis and critique of an approach which, within limits, can illuminate the dynamics of government decision-making. “Law and Public Choice is a most valuable contribution to the burgeoning literature. It should be of great interest to lawyers, political scientists, and all others interested in issues at the intersection of government and law.”—Cass R. Sunstein, University of Chicago Law School

Description : Public choice has been one of the most important developments in the social sciences in the last twenty years. However there are many people who are frustrated by the uncritical importing of ideas from economics into political science. Public Choice uses both empirical evidence and theoretical analysis to argue that the economic theory of politics is limited in scope and fertility. In order to arrive at a more comprehensive understanding of political life, political scientists must learn from both economists and sociologists.

Description : "An important managerial challenge is choosing the payoff horizon for strategic investments, since projects with long run benefits have immediate costs that reduce short run profits. My dissertation draws from the behavioral theory of the firm and agency theory to explain differences in payoff horizon choices between firms, based on performance relative to aspirations, incentive compensation, and external market pressure. I also test the intuition that long horizon investments have a positive impact on long run performance. The business model for cable operators during its programming variety phase from 1972-1996 offers a quasi-experimental setting ideally suited for research into these issues. Like public utilities, local cable companies are natural monopolies with single providers in each market. Unlike electricity, heat, or water service, however, there is neither a mandate for universal service nor municipal financing for capital investments. Furthermore, the distribution technology of microwave and, later, satellite eliminate the need for single firms to serve contiguous geographic regions, and the industry's pre-1972 history as a broadcast retransmission service contributed to a particularly disparate pattern of geographic expansion. As a result, cable operators during the research period do not compete with each other for market share among customers, but they do compete over future growth through their choice of investments. These investments have varying payoff horizons. In testing predictions about which firms pursue longer or shorter payoff horizons, I use simultaneous equation techniques. To assess the impact of short- and long-horizon investments on ex post performance, I use dynamic panel modeling that allows the direction and significance of investment choices to be interpreted at different lag lengths. What makes firms choose different payoff horizons? Are longer horizon investments associated with higher eventual performance, as conventional wisdom suggests? The first question is central to understanding firm strategy, while the second is crucial for evaluating that strategy. By addressing both, my dissertation generates corporate governance implications and insight into the value-creation potential of longer payoff horizons. In addition, it analyzes the causes and effects of the wide heterogeneity of firm strategies observed in the partially regulated and monopolistic cable industry"--Http://www.cablecenter.org/education/awards/2006GrantWinner.cfm (as viewed on 08/18/08).
