John Commons’ influence in American labor economics was eclipsed after World War II by a resurgent neoclassical labor economics that gradually relegated Commons’ institutional orientation to the periphery of economic discourse. A common opinion is that the work of institutional economists in the Commons tradition was largely descriptive and lacked theoretical content. Commons, however, regarded his Institutional Economics as a work of economic theory. This paper contains a description of the theoretical core of Institutional Economics and an evaluation of it from the perspective of its potential usefulness in the ... market research, surveys and trends


NBER digest - The National Bureau of Economic Research
"The United States is the single biggest recipient of immigrants - 35 million, or 12.4 percent of the population, in 2000." Because immigrants are the main economic beneficiaries from immigration and do not participate in decisions on immigration policies, the level of immigrant flows is the least developed part of globalization. To encourage the residents of rich countries to accept a higher level of immigration, the government could provide innovative economic incentives to residents. Countries with a queue of immigrants like the United States could auction off visas for immigration to the highest bidders. They could ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

What do you do, aside from your regular day job, to bring in extra ...
It's my goal to eventually have enough streams of income coming through so that the money from my full-time job is irrelevant. I work from home, which doesn't necessarily mean I have a ton of free time, but does mean that I do have more breathing room than I would if had an office job. Therefore, these streams of income would most likely require time to initially setup -- which is fine -- but would not require mass amounts of time to maintain. "Get a second job," is not what I'm looking for here. So, hivemind, what are you doing to bring in money outside of your main day job? As a rule of thumb, it's ...
