    Does whaling make cents? : A bioeconomic model of the Antarctic minke whale and the Japanese whaling industry by Buchanan, Samuel Prescott

    Japan's whaling fleet and environmental organizations are clashing in the Antarctic Ocean as Japan continues to conduct lethal scientific research on whales, specifically on the Antarctic minke whale (AMW). This conflict and issues surrounding other cetaceans have received substantial media attention in the past few years due to the Sea Shepherds Society's television show entitled Whale Wars and the movie The Cove. These productions succeeded in spreading awareness of Japan's lethal research on whales and harvests of dolphins, but insufficiently explained why Japan is engaging in practices that damage her international reputation. These media productions do not provide bioeconomic analysis modeling whether or not the species is threatened by Japan's actions nor the economics of whaling and Japan's market for whale products. Scientific articles related to the biology of whales, and historical, political, and cultural investigations that provide the foundation for the whaling conflict do not explore if Japan's lethal scientific research threatens the AMW with extinction nor explore the economics of Japan's whaling industry and domestic market if commercial whaling were to resume. This thesis aims to answer these questions by constructing a bioeconomic model composed of biological parameters and data from Japan's whaling fleet to estimate various sustainable catch yields and the corresponding AMW population sizes, Japan's seasonal effort in catcher-boat hours, and seasonal sustainable revenues. The eventual equilibrium population and sustainable catch yield if Japan maintains its current harvest effort, the maximum sustained yield, the condition of zero net revenue, and the condition in which the discounted total present value for all future whaling revenue is achieved will be explored in particular. The results conclude that Japan's current scientific research does not endanger the AMW, and furthermore concludes that whaling is not only profitable, but the industry capacity, high costs, and shrinking domestic demand discourage overharvesting that could lead to the collapse of the species

  • Thumbnail for Severance taxes : an investigation of Colorado's extraction tax policy
    Severance taxes : an investigation of Colorado's extraction tax policy by Clarke, Russell

    Colorado is a large energy producing state. Compared to other energy producing states, Colorado's current severance tax policies and rates are very lenient towards energy companies. There have been proposals to change these rates and policies but these proposals have been highly contested. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate Colorado's current policies and determine whether new rates and restructuring of the taxes would benefit the state of Colorado and its citizens. This paper uses past data and tax collections to create hypothetical situations for the future of Colorado's severance taxes. By studying the years of 1981-2008 a long range of effects of the potential policy change are examined. Using extraction models, rate changes are determined to have a small effect on the extraction paths and prices for crude oil. Calculations done to determine the effect of an endowment on Colorado's tax payout find a much more stable, but not necessarily larger payout.

    The effects of local land use regulation on property values, journey to work, and the quality of public service delivery : case studies of Boulder, Berkeley, and Fort Collins by Muire, Annie

    Beginning in the early 1960's, local governments throughout the United States have implemented growth management policies intended to influence the pattern of development and restrict growth. These regulations affect the conditions of community life by increasing property values, shifting demographics, and altering the delivery of public services. This thesis examines these effects through case studies of the City of Boulder, the City of Berkeley, and the City of Fort Collins, using data primarily from the US Census Bureau. It is hypothesized that the city with the most growth management policies will experience these effects to a greater magnitude. This was found to be partly true; there are other overriding factors that contribute to these changes more so than the presence or absence of growth management policies.

  • Thumbnail for Social network marketing for small businesses
    Social network marketing for small businesses by Martinson, Austin

    Social network marketing is an emerging channel of marketing. It could play a large role with small businesses in their marketing strategies. This thesis looks at the factors that affect the implementation of social network marketing for small businesses. Using models and theories surrounding other forms of direct marketing, this thesis fulfills a role in a marketing media with very little research. Relying on eight interviews with a variety of small business owners in Colorado, this thesis analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of social network marketing.

  • Thumbnail for Consumer perception of Chinese cars
    Consumer perception of Chinese cars by Carey, Ramsey Thomas

    In the near future, Chinese automobile manufacturers will import Chinese made cars into the United States automobile market. This thesis analyzes consumer perception of Chinese cars among students at Colorado College. A new theoretical model is constructed to represent the different factors that impact how a consumer perceives products of different country-of-origins. This theoretical model is then adapted into an econometric model that studies the impact of the variables on a consumers overall perception of that good. A survey is designed to capture the independent variables of the econometric model and the data analyzed. The econometric model finds consumer evaluations of Chinese and American are positively impacted by the same variables. The raw data also suggests that consumers perceive Chinese cars to be less safe, built to a lower quality, and carry more risk than Japanese and American automobiles.

  • Thumbnail for Creating and building customer loyalty : a case study exploring incentive programs
    Creating and building customer loyalty : a case study exploring incentive programs by LaVoie, Kelly Jean Ann

    During the last few decades, efforts to further customer-company relationships have become important due to increased competition in the consumer markets. One of the most popular strategies has been to introduce customer loyalty programs, which are believed to develop and enhance customer loyalty. The popularity of customer loyalty programs is based on the beliefs that loyal customers are very beneficial to a company and these programs would bond the customers to the company. More recently however, discussion over whether these statements are accurate has started to flourish. Loyal customers are not necessarily as profitable as believed and it is not easy for companies to gain competitive advantage because almost all companies have analogous customer loyalty programs. This thesis will evaluate a qualitative case study performed on ALK-Abelló, a global pharmaceutical company that specializes in allergen immunotherapy supplies. This thesis will determine whether their customer loyalty program manages to create and build loyalty among their customers, as well as analyze if a loyal customer is worthwhile for a company. A customer loyalty program is ultimately found to be a complement of customer loyalty alongside products, customer service and more.

  • Thumbnail for The effect of demographic, job, and organization characteristics on perceptions of work-life balance
    The effect of demographic, job, and organization characteristics on perceptions of work-life balance by Bullock, Liz H.

    In the past half-century, an emphasis on work-life balance has emerged as a result of a changing labor force. Researchers have examined a variety of factors to explain how individual perceptions of work-life balance are influenced; some studies focus mainly on micro factors, such as gender or race, while others look to larger-scale elements such as organizational structure or job characteristics. This thesis sought to compare both micro and macro factors to see if work-life balance was primarily a function of demographic, job, or organization characteristics. A total of 269 professional employees at over 100 domestic and international organizations were surveyed, and results were analyzed using three linear regression models. Out of all the factors that were significant in predicting work-life balance in the models observed, only one—having four or more children—was a condition that organizations cannot control for. Interestingly, all of the other factors that proved significant—job autonomy, average hours worked per week, job pressure, and workplace support—are attributes that organizations can influence. Thus, this thesis suggests that organizations have a powerful role in helping their professional employees achieve a comfortable work-life balance.

  • Thumbnail for Analysis of the structure and policy of Child Welfare Services
    Analysis of the structure and policy of Child Welfare Services by Martinez, Yvonne

    Within the United States, the manner in which Child Welfare Services have been provided to assist children in need has evolved since its implementation. Services have ranged from traditional orphanages to Orphan Trains to the now common foster and adoption systems that are used today. This paper will discuss the audit and risk management framework and the current structure of the Child Welfare System. Then, Colorado statute and child fatality case reviews are analyzed to demonstrate how the oversight in the form of an internal audit group could benefit the services provided.

  • Thumbnail for Determinants of recreational fishing license demand
    Determinants of recreational fishing license demand by McMillin, Brian

    This paper examines the determinants of the demand for resident annual recreational fishing licenses across the upper-mid-west region of the United States. Statewide aggregate data was collected from North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin in an attempt to understand what drives license sales across a national framework. Analysis of the results of an Ordinary Least Squares regression provides states with the opportunity to understand how much changes to the determinants affect license sales. It was determined that seven out of ten possible determinants provided significant results. Understanding of these determinants will allow states to improve efficiency of license sales, which in turn leads to higher revenue and better conservation efforts.

    Variation in pill use : do abortion laws matter? by Lybecker, Kristina M. , Felkey, Amanda J.

    Economists have studied the impact of legalized abortion on a variety of factors including women’s decision surrounding when to enter the work force and how many hours to work, schooling and most controversially crime. They have also examined the determinants of state abortion restrictions across the United States, considering the strength of interest advocacy groups and demographic characteristics. Notably absent from the existing literature is a study of the impact of legalized abortion on the use of contraceptives. Earlier work has established that states with more lenient laws regarding access to contraceptive services by minors have greater pill use, but the impact of the legal framework surrounding abortion restrictions has not been examined. This paper explores the possibility that variation in state abortion availability, as proxied by legislation pertaining to women’s reproductive rights (particularly either supporting or restricting access to abortions) across the United States may generate variation in the use of birth control pills. Without the option of terminating a pregnancy, one would expect that oral contraceptives would be more widely utilized. We find restrictions on abortion availability (through abortion legislation mandating parental consent or notification) induce women to seek a reliable form of birth control to avoid unwanted pregnancies, while pro-choice sentiments in the legislature may have the opposite effect. We also consider the effect of sex education on the rate of oral contraceptive use within states.
