Charitable giving under inequality aversion

We use General Social Survey data to test our theory's prediction that voluntary giving increases with inequality aversion for high income individuals, and that the opposite is true for low income individuals. We find strong support for our theoretical predictions. Published by Elsevier B.V.


Enflasyon ve İşsizlik Oranı Algısının İncelenmesi: Bir Anket Çalışması
Büyükboyacı Hanay, Mürüvvet İlknur; Özdemir, Özlem; Küçükşenel, Serkan (2020-12-01)
Bu çalışmada bireylerin kişilik ve demografik özelliklerinin enflasyon ve işsizlik oranı algıları üzerine etkisi incelenmektedir. Türkiye’de bu konuyla ilgili yapılmış ilk anket çalışmasının sonucunda, kişilerin enflasyon ve işsizlik oranı algılarının resmi değerden sapma miktarları, kişilerin kendilerini finansal konularda daha fazla bilgili hissetmeleri ve aldıkları iktisat dersi sayısı ile ters orantılı bulunmuştur. Literatürdeki bulgulara paralel olarak kadınların hem enflasyon hem de işsizlik oran...
Multi-channel retailing with product differentiation
Uğur, Havva Gülçin; Karaer, Özgen; Department of Industrial Engineering (2015)
In this study, we analyze a monopolist retailer’s product differentiation problem in a multi-channel environment. We investigate the type of conditions that would motivate retailer to open an outlet branch, to open an online channel, and to even potentially open an online channel for the outlet branch, and how these decisions interact with each other. We use quality and price as the primary drivers in the outlet business decision in a vertical differentiation model. In the outlet business decision, specific...

Secondly, interest and perception of people about politics and municipal administration were inve...
Stochastic surplus processes with VaR AND CVaR simulations in actuarial applications
Şimşek, Meral; Uğur, Ömür; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Department of Actuarial Sciences (2016)
The theory of ruin is a substantial study for those who are interested in financial survival probability based on the patterns imposed by the surplus process, which determines the insurer’s capital balance at a given time. In other words, fluctuations in aggregate claims as well as premiums in such processes can be secured by a certain capital. In this study, we simulate various surplus processes under different claim sizedistribution assumptions and extend the analyses by adding perturbation of a Brownian mo...
Missing links in poverty analysis in the age of neoliberal globalization: Some lessons from Turkey
Şenses, Fikret (2008-03-01)
The main objective of this essay is to point out the missing links between neoliberalism on the one hand, and a comprehensive analysis of poverty and effective policies to tackle it, on the other. After identifying the main channels through which neoliberalism affects poverty, I will draw attention to the inadequacy of the neoliberal approach in coming to terms with the main reasons behind poverty, as well as in developing a comprehensive and effective mechanism for its alleviation. I emphasize the role of ...
