Impact Evaluation - Treatment Effects and Causal Analysis (Hardcover): Markus Frolich, Stefan Sperlich Impact Evaluation - Treatment Effects and Causal Analysis (Hardcover)
Markus Frolich, Stefan Sperlich
R2,026 R1,897 Discovery Miles 18 970 Save R129 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In recent years, interest in rigorous impact evaluation has grown tremendously in policy-making, economics, public health, social sciences and international relations. Evidence-based policy-making has become a recurring theme in public policy, alongside greater demands for accountability in public policies and public spending, and requests for independent and rigorous impact evaluations for policy evidence. Froelich and Sperlich offer a comprehensive and up-to-date approach to quantitative impact evaluation analysis, also known as causal inference or treatment effect analysis, illustrating the main approaches for identification and estimation: experimental studies, randomization inference and randomized control trials (RCTs), matching and propensity score matching and weighting, instrumental variable estimation, difference-in-differences, regression discontinuity designs, quantile treatment effects, and evaluation of dynamic treatments. The book is designed for economics graduate courses but can also serve as a manual for professionals in research institutes, governments, and international organizations, evaluating the impact of a wide range of public policies in health, environment, transport and economic development.

Statistical Thinking through Media Examples (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition): Anthony Donoghue Statistical Thinking through Media Examples (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)
Anthony Donoghue
R1,832 Discovery Miles 18 320 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Statistical Thinking through Media Examples uses real-world examples from various media to give students an introduction to fundamentals of statistical thinking. Unlike many standard texts in the discipline, the book focuses on conceptual understanding - the meaning behind mathematical calculations rather than the calculations themselves. Written in accessible language, the book begins by discussing the importance of learning how to assess the quality of research results presented by the media. This understanding creates an essential context for subsequent chapters on questioning study design including polls and surveys, reasoning with variation in data measurements, understanding probability, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, and linear regression. Students also learn how statistics can be misused and manipulated by researchers to provide a desired result. The second edition features new coverage of select topics, including ANOVA, Chi-Square tests, and multiple linear regression. Every chapter references online resources or includes in-depth discussion to draw connections between statistical concepts and media examples, such as studies on alcohol consumption and cardiovascular health, American football and brain injury, public mass shootings, dishonesty in scientific research, and more. Statistical Thinking through Media Examples is an ideal resource for any course that deals with introductory statistics, particularly those in the health and social sciences, journalism, and business.

The Economics of Collusion - Cartels and Bidding Rings (Paperback): Robert C. Marshall, Leslie M. Marx The Economics of Collusion - Cartels and Bidding Rings (Paperback)
Robert C. Marshall, Leslie M. Marx
R460 R370 Discovery Miles 3 700 Save R90 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

An examination of collusive behavior: what it is, why it is profitable, how it is implemented, and how it might be detected. Explicit collusion is an agreement among competitors to suppress rivalry that relies on interfirm communication and/or transfers. Rivalry between competitors erodes profits; the suppression of rivalry through collusion is one avenue by which firms can enhance profits. Many cartels and bidding rings function for years in a stable and peaceful manner despite the illegality of their agreements and incentives for deviation by their members. In The Economics of Collusion, Robert Marshall and Leslie Marx offer an examination of collusive behavior: what it is, why it is profitable, how it is implemented, and how it might be detected. Marshall and Marx, who have studied collusion extensively for two decades, begin with three narratives: the organization and implementation of a cartel, the organization and implementation of a bidding ring, and a parent company's efforts to detect collusion by its divisions. These accounts-fictitious, but rooted in the inner workings and details from actual cases-offer a novel and engaging way for the reader to understand the basics of collusive behavior. The narratives are followed by detailed economic analyses of cartels, bidding rings, and detection. The narratives offer an engaging entree to the more rigorous economic discussion that follows. The book is accessible to any reader who understands basic economic reasoning. Mathematical material is flagged with asterisks.

Introduction to Functional Data Analysis (Hardcover): Piotr Kokoszka, Matthew Reimherr Introduction to Functional Data Analysis (Hardcover)
Piotr Kokoszka, Matthew Reimherr
R1,336 Discovery Miles 13 360 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Introduction to Functional Data Analysis provides a concise textbook introduction to the field. It explains how to analyze functional data, both at exploratory and inferential levels. It also provides a systematic and accessible exposition of the methodology and the required mathematical framework. The book can be used as textbook for a semester-long course on FDA for advanced undergraduate or MS statistics majors, as well as for MS and PhD students in other disciplines, including applied mathematics, environmental science, public health, medical research, geophysical sciences and economics. It can also be used for self-study and as a reference for researchers in those fields who wish to acquire solid understanding of FDA methodology and practical guidance for its implementation. Each chapter contains plentiful examples of relevant R code and theoretical and data analytic problems. The material of the book can be roughly divided into four parts of approximately equal length: 1) basic concepts and techniques of FDA, 2) functional regression models, 3) sparse and dependent functional data, and 4) introduction to the Hilbert space framework of FDA. The book assumes advanced undergraduate background in calculus, linear algebra, distributional probability theory, foundations of statistical inference, and some familiarity with R programming. Other required statistics background is provided in scalar settings before the related functional concepts are developed. Most chapters end with references to more advanced research for those who wish to gain a more in-depth understanding of a specific topic.

Applied Stochastic Differential Equations (Paperback): Simo Sarkka, Arno Solin Applied Stochastic Differential Equations (Paperback)
Simo Sarkka, Arno Solin
R788 Discovery Miles 7 880 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Stochastic differential equations are differential equations whose solutions are stochastic processes. They exhibit appealing mathematical properties that are useful in modeling uncertainties and noisy phenomena in many disciplines. This book is motivated by applications of stochastic differential equations in target tracking and medical technology and, in particular, their use in methodologies such as filtering, smoothing, parameter estimation, and machine learning. It builds an intuitive hands-on understanding of what stochastic differential equations are all about, but also covers the essentials of Ito calculus, the central theorems in the field, and such approximation schemes as stochastic Runge-Kutta. Greater emphasis is given to solution methods than to analysis of theoretical properties of the equations. The book's practical approach assumes only prior understanding of ordinary differential equations. The numerous worked examples and end-of-chapter exercises include application-driven derivations and computational assignments. MATLAB/Octave source code is available for download, promoting hands-on work with the methods.

A Handbook of Economic Indicators (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition): John A.G. Grant A Handbook of Economic Indicators (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)
John A.G. Grant
R507 Discovery Miles 5 070 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Every day brings new reports and statistics on the economy, but most of us find it difficult to fit these indicators together to form a coherent picture. This book should help non-economists, whether journalists, managers, students, or investors, to do just that.

Nine chapters explain in straightforward terms the role of households, businesses, governments, and foreign interests in the economy, and how their economic activities are measured. The author clearly describes the 'how' and 'why' of monetary and fiscal policies, and their interactions. One chapter explains how wages and employment are determined.

The last two chapters look at the major Canadian and U.S. economic indicators, such as the consumer price index, housing starts, and employment data. What information do they contain? When are they released? What website can they be found at? How reliable are they? What is their significance? The author helps the reader weigh the information in the indicators in order to anticipate economic developments.

For the businessperson who needs to understand the economy's impact on the 'bottom line', for the student who wants to bridge the gap between theory and the 'real world', for the individual who wants to make better investment decisions, this handbook provides clear, concise guidance.

Patentism Replacing Capitalism - A Prediction from Logical Economics (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2019): Samuel Meng Patentism Replacing Capitalism - A Prediction from Logical Economics (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2019)
Samuel Meng
R2,255 R1,704 Discovery Miles 17 040 Save R551 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Based on economic knowledge and logical reasoning, this book proposes a solution to economic recessions and offers a route for societal change to end capitalism. The author starts with a brief review of the history of economics, and then questions and rejects the trend of recent decades that has seen econometrics replace economic theory. By reviewing the different schools of economic thought and by examining the limitations of existing theories to business cycles and economic growth, the author forms a new theory to explain cyclic economic growth. According to this theory, economic recessions result from innovation scarcity, which in turn results from the flawed design of the patent system. The author suggests a new design for the patent system and envisions that the new design would bring about large economic and societal changes. Under this new patent system, the synergy of the patent and capital markets would ensure that economic recessions could be avoided and that the economy would grow at the highest speed.

Jeremy Arkes
R1,238 Discovery Miles 12 380 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

With the rise of "big data," there is an increasing demand to learn the skills needed to undertake sound quantitative analysis without requiring students to spend too much time on high-level math and proofs. This book provides an efficient alternative approach, with more time devoted to the practical aspects of regression analysis and how to recognize the most common pitfalls. By doing so, the book will better prepare readers for conducting, interpreting, and assessing regression analyses, while simultaneously making the material simpler and more enjoyable to learn. Logical and practical in approach, Regression Analysis teaches: (1) the tools for conducting regressions; (2) the concepts needed to design optimal regression models (based on avoiding the pitfalls); and (3) the proper interpretations of regressions. Furthermore, this book emphasizes honesty in research, with a prevalent lesson being that statistical significance is not the goal of research. This book is an ideal introduction to regression analysis for anyone learning quantitative methods in the social sciences, business, medicine, and data analytics. It will also appeal to researchers and academics looking to better understand what regressions do, what their limitations are, and what they can tell us. This will be the most engaging book on regression analysis (or Econometrics) you will ever read!

Quirino Paris
R1,822 R1,712 Discovery Miles 17 120 Save R110 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The search for symmetry is part of the fundamental scientific paradigm in mathematics and physics. Can this be valid also for economics? This book represents an attempt to explore this possibility. The behavior of price-taking producers, monopolists, monopsonists, sectoral market equilibria, behavior under risk and uncertainty, and two-person zero- and non-zero-sum games are analyzed and discussed under the unifying structure called the linear complementarity problem. Furthermore, the equilibrium problem allows for the relaxation of often-stated but unnecessary assumptions. This unifying approach offers the advantage of a better understanding of the structure of economic models. It also introduces the simplest and most elegant algorithm for solving a wide class of problems.
