  • Thumbnail for Dynamic scoring : with an emphasis on government consumption
    Dynamic scoring : with an emphasis on government consumption by Callegari, Jason

    To what extent has static scoring biased legislators against tax cuts? This paper builds upon recent work in the field of dynamic scoring, trying to answer this question. Following the foundation built by Mankiw and Weinzierl (2005) and augmented by Stinespring (2006) these models will be enhanced by including government consumption in the consumers utility function. After adding government consumption to the aforementioned models I will compare the static and dynamic effects. This comparison will occur through the use of the feedback effects and the government revenue maximizing peaks of the Laffer curve. The findings indicate that legislators have been biased against capital tax cuts, as 45% of tax revenue lost is recouped through increased growth, but labor tax cuts prove to be less responsive showing further loss of revenue in the long run.

  • Thumbnail for Brand-person relationships : the link between brand loyalty and brand-person relationships
    Brand-person relationships : the link between brand loyalty and brand-person relationships by Castillo, Jessica

    It is recognized that consumers develop a loyalty to some brands. Brand loyalty results in profitable sales for the firm, but they want consumers to build a deeper connection with brands. Consumers are also known to love a brand and build relationships with it. It is speculated that brands can have human characteristics that help form a relationship. For example, brands can be trustworthy when their quality is consistent. Through interviews this thesis investigates which characteristics are important in order to build a brand-person relationship.

    Determinants of the adoption of online purchasing and the percent of income spent online by Hannah, Brendan

    Electronic commerce has seen an explosion in the last decade, but growth has not reached analysts' predictions since it has stagnated in the past several years. Electronic commerce provides a conduit towards perfect competition and maximum consumer surplus. To stimulate growth, it is imperative for electronic retailers to understand online consumer behavior. Unfortunately, previous findings have been antiquated due to archaic data and static models. Shifting online demographics and the escalated importance ofInternet activities require dynamic models. To find the determinants of the adoption of online shopping, logistic regression is applied to survey data from a nationally representative group of online users. A model based on the novel dependent variable, percentage of income spent online in the last three months, provides findings for real world applications and integrates never-studied variables regarding Internet activities. The adoption of online shopping is positively correlated with the female gender, income, ownership of a credit card or PayPal™ account, patronization of online auctions and listening to podcasts. The determinants of male gender, educational attainment, ownership of online deferred payment accounts and listening to podcasts are all positively correlated with the percentage of income spent online in the last three months, accounting for 17.3% of variance explained. These findings allow electronic retailers the ability to perform tangible revenue estimates as well as efficiently advertise via underutilized channels, moving electronic commerce towards perfect competition and maximum consumer surplus.

  • Thumbnail for Effects of income tax credits on conservation easement donation : a case study of Colorado counties
    Effects of income tax credits on conservation easement donation : a case study of Colorado counties by Ellis, Meghann Alaina

    High rates of population growth and subdivision development in Colorado are leading to the rapid disappearance of environmentally significant lands throughout the state. In an attempt to address the problem, the state legislature implemented income tax credits in 2000 to promote the use of conservation easements (the donation of land development rights). This study examines data for seven counties and one agricultural land trust to determine the effects of these unique tax credits. The possible effects, including changes in the number of easements donated per year, the size of the easements, the number of easements donated on agricultural parcels, and possible inefficiencies in the program, are examined both theoretically and empirically. Although the effects of the credits are not uniform between counties, conclusions from the data are still possible. An increase in conservation easement donation is found to coincide with the introduction of the tax credits in most cases, indicating success of the tax credits in achieving the goal of increased donation while inefficiencies may still exist.

  • Thumbnail for NAFTA's effects on employment in the Colorado cattle industry
    NAFTA's effects on employment in the Colorado cattle industry by Masoni, Christine Elizabeth

    Since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has been such a debatable topic for the past 15 years of it's implementation, previous research has been conducted on this topic. However, most of this research ignores the positive effects that this agreement may have caused. The purpose of this thesis is to examine an industry that has experienced positive changes induced by NAFTA. The positive changes are expected to have occurred using expectations from classical international trade theory. Based off of these theories, the hypothesis is that in an industry that has experienced an increase in net exports, employment will have increased as well. This thesis examines the cattle industry in Colorado, which has seen a net increase in exports of beef products as a direct result of NAFTA. A qualitative research method was used, interviewing cattle ranchers in Colorado to gather data on the changes that have occurred since NAFTA. Results from data show that NAFTA has caused employment in this industry to remain stable over the NAFTA years. Also concluded from the data is that international trade models do not explain enough, resulting in expectations that do not capture the entire dynamics of free trade and globalization.

    Biotechnology innovation : a social network analysis by Roy, Brittany Donner

    This study builds upon theoretical models pertaining to social networking in order to attain explicit insight about the organization of the biotechnology industry and its innovative process. Most importantly, these new models illustrate the diminishing effect of geographic clustering in the U.S. biotechnology industry from 1976 to 1995. Patent and citation records were obtained from the NBER to provide detailed information about knowledge spillovers governing biotechnology innovation and to determine strategic positioning and relations among biotech innovators in the United States.

  • Thumbnail for The future of downtown Colorado Springs : a survey
    The future of downtown Colorado Springs : a survey by Solomon, Sara Marie Mathias

    Recently in downtown Colorado Springs there are an increasing number of vacant store fronts. This is a good indicator that the downtown area is not developing. Throughout the nation many cities, including Colorado Springs are implementing urban renewal programs to stimulate growth in their Central Business Districts. This paper examines the measures that are being taken to stimulate growth and hypothesizes that growth is correlated with crime, income, culture, population, and the budget of the renewal program. I examined the plans for the future of downtown Colorado Springs and I also spoke with some of the creators of this plan and will outline their opinion of the future of the downtown area. Sales tax revenue and vacancy rates are the measure of growth for the downtown area and will be regressed against income and budgetary expenditures for the downtown area. The purpose of this paper is to see where Downtown Colorado Springs is heading and whether or not the plans for the area will be enough to not only rent out those vacant store fronts but have a prosperous downtown in the future.
