Physical Geography and the History of Economic Development
Gordon C. McCord and Jeffrey D. Sachs

Abstract: The geographical patterns of income differences across the world have deep underpinnings. We emphasize that economic development is a complex process driven by economic, political, social, and biophysical forces. Some economists have argued that the patterns reflect mainly the historical footprint of colonial rule and political evolution, and that geography’s effects on development occurred exclusively through its effects on this historical institutional development. We suggest that economic development has also been shaped very importantly by the biophysical and geophysical characteristics of economies. Per capita incomes differ around the world in no small part because of sharp differences across regions in the natural resource base and physical geography, and by the amplification of those differences through the dynamics of saving and investment. We posit that the drivers of economic development include institutions, technology, and geography, and that none of these alone is sufficient to account for the diverse patterns of global growth. This paper discusses the role of physical geography in economic history, surveys relevant literature, presents new geographic variables for scholarly use, and documents empirical regularities suggesting an important role for geography in the distribution of economic activity around the world today.

Urbanization, Diet Change, and the Transformation of the Downstream and Midstream of the Agrifood System: Effects on the Poor in Africa and Asia
Thomas Reardon, Duncan Boughton, David Tschirley, Steve Haggblade, Michael Dolislager, Bart Minten, and Ricardo Hernandez

Abstract: In Africa and Asia, agrifood markets are important to the poor, and current rapid changes in these markets have implications for the poor. First, as a share of the national market, urban markets have gone from marginal some decades ago to dominant today. Thus the urban market is a main food product market the poor face as sellers. Second, the poor are exposed to the product market often as net buyers of products (both from local sources but also increasingly from urban sources of processed foods and fresh products re-“exported” from urban to rural markets). Third, the poor are also very exposed to labor markets as sellers of labor—both to the rural nonfarm and the urban labor markets. Fourth, the product market has transformed from mainly a grain market some decades ago to a market diversified byond staples into fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, dairy and edible oils. There is a chance for the poor to gain from this shift toward higher-value non-staples as farmers, and as workers since the employment multipliers are high from non-grains. Fifth, agrifood markets are also transforming structurally. Supply chains are getting geographically longer with urbanization, and developing (with a proliferation of SMEs in the early stages) and consolidating (with the emergence of supermarkets and large processors in the more advanced stages). This may lower food costs for the urban poor and increase the scope and volume of the urban market for rural suppliers. In sum, urbanization, diet change, and food system transformation all offer opportunities for the poor as suppliers of labor and products and sellers of labor. But accessing these opportunities requires “threshold investments” in human, physical or locational assets by the poor to seize these opportunities. The requirements can be geographic (hence geographic poverty traps) and micro (skills, productive assets).

Religion and Female Education: Trans-Megabloc Effects
Seth W. Norton and Annette Tomal

Abstract: This paper examines the link between trans-megabloc Christian groups and female education—both the attainment levels and the education gender gap—using the Barro-Lee education dataset for a sample of 97 countries. The term trans-megabloc (Barrett, Kurian and Johnson, 2001) refers to groups that are defined by a set of beliefs/behaviors that transcend Christian denominations or the categories of Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox Christians. The three trans-megabloc groups are evangelicals, great commission Christians, and Pentecostal/charismatics. Other control variables are urbanization, tropics, colonial heritage, female labor force participation, and young adult mortality. Results show that increases in the percentage of trans-megabloc Christians decrease the proportion of unschooled population and increase the proportion of women who attain higher education. The greater the proportion of trans-megabloc Christians in a country’s population, the smaller the education gender gap for both unschooled and higher educational attainment. In no case for trans-megabloc religious groupings do we find significant bias against female educational attainment in an absolute sense or relative to male educational attainment. When other religions are included in regression estimates, the favorable trans-megabloc effects are muted and less statistically significant. In contrast, the negative effects of other religions are robust and nearly uniform for both female educational attainment and the female/male gender gap.

Institutions, Geography, and Trade: A Panel Data Study
Jeffry Jacob and Thomas Osang

Abstract: This paper employs a panel data approach to examine the impact of institutions, trade and geography on economic development. Our approach enables us to account for unobserved heterogeneity across countries, an issue that cannot be addressed in the cross-section framework. Moreover, employing the Hausman and Taylor approach allows us to obtain direct parameter estimates of the time invariant explanatory variables like geography or some institutional measures. Our findings are that institutions, economic integration, and geography are valid determinants of economic development with regard to statistical significance and robustness but differ substantially in terms of their economic impact.

Household Preferences for Municipal and Community-Managed Services: Survey Results from Guatemala
William F. Vásquez

Abstract: This article investigates household preferences for municipal and community-managed water services using survey data from Guatemala. Household preferences are elicited using a set of questions where respondents could choose between the municipality and a community-based water organization based on some institutional and service characteristics. Responses to one of those questions allow for identifying the households that would change water supplier if given the opportunity to do so. Results indicate that almost half of respondents with community-managed services would opt for changing to municipal services. In contrast, few respondents with municipal services (11.6 percent) would change to a community-managed system. This can be partially explained by perceived differentials in institutional characteristics such as responsiveness, capacity, and support from the central government. Monetary factors also influence the willingness of respondents with municipal services to change their water supplier. On the other hand, respondents with community-managed services would change water supplier due to the unreliability of their current services. Policy implications are discussed.

Game Theory in Christian Perspective
Ben Cooper

AbstractGame theory has had an enormous impact on the social sciences, and economics in particular. A Christian user of game theory should be at least as aware as any other user of its assumptions and limitations. In particular, he or she should be wary of the ethical stance taken in most practical applications of game theory, which is almost uniformly consequentialist, and most often utilitarian. However, so long as these limitations are understood, there is no objection in principle to the tools and concepts of game theory being used from a Christian point of view. They may even be used for explicitly Christian social or economic analysis, and this paper will conclude with some examples of how this might be done.

 Is Fair Trade Worth Its Cost?
Victor V. Claar and Colleen E. Haight

Abstract: This paper extends the existing literature on fair trade by incorporating the latest empirical analyses as well as responding to recent claims that even if fair trade is deemed to be an inefficient or ineffective tool toward poverty alleviation, there may nevertheless be other compelling reasons to retain either the fair trade model or the fair trade label. The analysis contrasts the alternative trade organization (ATO) model of fair trade with the commodity-based Fairtrade International (FLO) model, and also discusses the recent departure of Fair Trade USA from the FLO. We conclude that commodity-based fair trade initiatives are simply not worth their opportunity cost.

HouseholdsGiving to Religion vs. Households Not Giving toReligion: Are Their Household Characteristics and ExpenditurePatterns Different?
Vince E. Showers, Linda S. Showers, Hulda G. Black, Jeri M. Beggs, and James E. Cox, Jr.

Abstract: This study examines differences in expenditure patterns and characteristics of households giving to religion (religiously committed households) versus households not giving to religion. In addition, expenditure patterns and demographic characteristics are examined among religious givers based on four categories of percent of income given to religion. A permanent income measure represents households’ perceived incomes and controls for large income variations and skewness. Descriptive statistics and parametric and nonparametric statistical tests are used to examine differences among households. Significant differences in demographics are found among households at different levels of giving to religion. Also, per dollar of income spent on tobacco and alcohol, as well as health and life insurance expenditures, differ between households giving to religion and households not giving to religion. No differences in percent of income spent are found between these two groups for “pleasure” and “necessity” items. Households with the highest percent of income given to religion give more to charities compared to households not giving to religion. This study offers significant evidence of the impact of faith on marketplace behavior, especially in charitable giving and family health and welfare.

 Schaffner, Julie. "Development Economics in 2015"

Abstract: Compared to 30 years ago, the field of development economics today is more coherent, more grounded in empirical reality, and more relevant to practical policymaking.  It is also shaped by richer conceptions of well-being, people, and socioeconomic systems.  This paper offers a review of current development economics, highlighting the analytical framework that now ties the field together and the significance within the framework of eight themes, related to transfer costs, mobility costs, liquidity constraints, insurance constraints, present bias, learning and persuasion, cooperation and private institutions, and governance problems in public sector institutions.  The paper then briefly discusses the usefulness of the framework for policymaking by governments and NGOs, and the possible implications, more specifically, for Christian development work. JEL Codes: O10, L31

 Yuengert, Andrew. "It Isn’t Bad to Have Limits, as Long as You Know Them: What the Aristotelian Tradition can Offer Economics"

Abstract: Economics can learn much about its limits from the Aristotelian tradition, which describes aspects of choice behavior which cannot be precisely modeled. This article argues through three propositions that economists cannot understand the limits of their modeling approach for normative work unless they engage with more comprehensive accounts of human decision making, like the account offered in the Aristotelian tradition. An awareness of the limits of economic modelling can have two desirable effects: it can bring some clarity to the confusion of terms which plagues discussion between economists and non-economists, and encourage economists to advocate more effectively for those insights of their models which are least dependent on unrealistic assumptions.  JEL Codes: B4, A11, D63
