    Social capital as a determinant of innovation by Alonso Arenas, Rafael

    This thesis explores the relationship between social capital and innovation across 40 regions in the United States. Data is drawn from the Social Capital Community Benchmark Survey, compiled by the John F. Kennedy School of Government and the Saguaro Seminar, and the MicroPatent CD-ROM Database from the USPTO. Innovative activity is modeled as a function of knowledge stocks, human capital, four aspects of social capital, and other control variables across six industries over 38 years. The results suggest that certain manifestations of social capital, such as levels of trust and cooperation, consistently have a positive impact on innovative activity. Furthermore, communities with greater levels of cooperation and better-established networks innovate even more in the presence of previous local knowledge.

    The New Glass Ceiling: Incarceration’s Effects on Lifetime Wage Growth by Corwin, Theodore, III

    The United States incarcerates its citizens at rates higher than those of any other developed nation in the world, straining both its budgets and communities. The long-run effects of incarceration have been receiving more attention in the past two decades, but little research addresses incarceration’s effects on earnings trajectory. Using the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth for 1997, I implement propensity score matching to model the treatment effects of incarceration on wage growth rates, controlling for individual characteristics that influence labor market outcomes.
