Abstract

This Introduction has a threefold purpose: (1)to relate the volume to the existing literature so that the reader is better able to appreciate the motivation for the essays, the problems they are attempting to resolve, and their departure from conventional methods of analysis; (2)to highlight the main theoretical and econometric innovations of the individual essays; and (3)to attempt to synthesize the principal empirical findings with an eye toward identifying the major similarities and differences emerging from the separate papers.
