Abstract: Recent literature on the e ffect of immigration on wages assume perfectly inelastic labor supply. This paper departs from this assumption estimating a labor market equilibrium dynamic discrete choice model with U.S. micro-data for 1967-2007. Individuals adjust to immigration by changing education, participation, and/or occupation. Results suggest important adjustments that mitigate initial e ffects on wages and inequality. Adjustments are heterogeneous. Some individuals substantially increase their education while others reduce it. The model also corrects for a self-selection bias at the lower tail of the wage distribution produced by labor market detachment. The results imply that the perfectly inelastic labor supply assumption is too restrictive.

Titolo: Analyzing the EuroVotePlus Experiment

Abstract: This paper reports on an online experiment that took place in several European countries during the three weeks before the 2014 elections for the European Parliament. We created a website where visitors could obtain information about the electoral rules used in different European Member States for this election. Participants were then invited to cast (simulated) ballots for the election according to three voting rules: closed list proportional representation, open list proportional representation with preferential voting, and open list proportional representation with cumulative voting and panachage. Participants were also invited to think about, and experiment with, the idea of electing some members of the European Parliament through pan-European party lists. The data gathered from this study enable researchers to consider the effects of electoral systems on outcomes in individual countries, and also to investigate the potential popularity and effects of Europe-wide European Parliament constituencies.
