1. Patiño Peña, Fausto. Essays on Government Policy and the Allocation of Resources.

Degree: PhD, Economics, 2019, University of Minnesota

This dissertation studies the effects of government policies on macroeconomic aggregates. Chapter 1 evaluates the impact of occupational licensing on consumer welfare, the allocation of labor, and the wage premium between licensed and unlicensed workers. In the United States, workers must undergo training and pay a fee to become licensed. Licensing policy protects consumers by alleviating an information asymmetry in the product market. However, it is an entry barrier that distorts the occupational choice of workers in the labor market. To analyze this trade-off, a framework with adverse selection in the product market and occupational choice in the labor market is developed. The model is calibrated to the US labor market using worker level micro-data. Removing licensing training requirements leads to a 4 percent reduction in consumer welfare and the wage premium falls by more than half. Chapter 2 is written jointly with Marcos Dinerstein. This chapter studies the effect of corporate taxes on aggregate total factor productivity (TFP). Using Chilean manufacturing data, this chapter documents that there is large dispersion in the effective tax rate and there is a large mass of firms facing a 0 percent tax rate. These features are used to develop and discipline a standard monopolistic competition model with corporate tax rates. When corporate taxes are eliminated, TFP increases between 4 and 11 percent. However, when all firms face the Chilean statutory tax rate, TFP decreases despite the fact that the dispersion in tax rates is eliminated. Chapter 3 is coauthored with Guillermo Cabral. This chapter analyzes the role of demographics in explaining the trends of real variables after the Great Recession. An important reason why demographics play an important role during the crisis's recovery period is that the Great Recession coincides with the “baby boomers” entering retirement age. This chapter documents that employment is converging to a different trend relative to its pre-crisis long term trend. A standard growth model with demographic features is calibrated in order to quantify the effect of demographics on output after the Great Recession. Demographics account for 35% of the change in the trend of output after 2008.

2. Strickler, Amy. Assessing the Efficacy of Pre-Service Trainings for Treatment Foster Parents.

Degree: PhD, Counseling, Psychology, & Special Education, 2015, Duquesne University

This quasi-experimental study examined the effectiveness of two pre-service trainings: Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting (MAPP, n = 81) and Pressley Ridge's Treatment Foster Care pre-service training (PR-TFC, n = 71) on treatment foster parents' parenting attitudes, readiness to provide treatment foster care, and attitudes toward providing treatment foster care. ANCOVAs revealed the PR-TFC group experienced significantly more change than the MAPP group in two parenting constructs, and the MAPP group experienced significantly more change than the PR-TFC group in one parenting construct. This study revealed no significant differences between groups in the amount of change in personal dedication to provide foster care or willingness to foster children with emotional and behavioral issues. However, a chi-square test of association showed licensing rates were significantly higher for the PR-TFC group than the MAPP group. This study also included a follow-up component for participants from the PR-TFC group who were licensed and had a child placed in their home. Repeated measures ANOVAs found significant increases for the PR-TFC group from posttest to follow-up and pretest to follow-up for personal dedication to fostering, but no significant changes in their willingness to foster. A description of treatment foster parent attitudes toward providing treatment foster care after a child was placed in the home is also provided. Practical implications of these results and recommendations for future research are discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Matthew J Bundick, Lisa L Levers, Annette C Trunzo.
