To see how the recent financial downturn affected workers nearing retirement, the Center for Retirement Research commissioned an Internet survey of 1,317 working Americans between the ages of 45 and 59. This survey was conducted by Knowledge Networks during July and August 2009 using their nationally representative panel. A subsample of 358 individuals who had at least $50,000 in pre-downturn retirement assets and experienced a loss of at least 10%, were asked to respond to four additional questions measuring the effect of financial literacy. The survey addressed a wide range of factors that could influence workers' response to the downturn, including socio-economic, financial, employment, and behavioral characteristics.

To see if attitudes are changing about the potential for using one's home to cover living expenses in retirement, the Center for Retirement Research commissioned a survey that examined the house as a potential source of retirement income. Harris Interactive® conducted the study online within the United States between January 24 and February 2, 2007 among 2,673 adults (aged 50-65). Figures for age, sex, race, education, household income, and region were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents’ propensity to be online. The questionnaire, results, and raw data from both surveys are available.

The implications of clientelism for democratic accountability are mixed: brokers help coordinate votes for collective gain, but also exploit their position to advance personal interest. I argue that brokers use distinct strategies -- persuasion, reciprocation, and punishment -- to motivate voters as a function of their local institutional context. Competitively selected brokers whose preferences are aligned with those of followers can rely more on persuasion than instrumental inducements. Economically autonomous brokers are more likely to rely on sanctions than reciprocity. Evidence to support both the proposed typology of broker strategies and their determinants is collected in Senegal, a clientelistic democracy where group-level heterogeneity generates natural variation in broker types. A coordination game played with real brokers illustrates that participants are less likely to sacrifice personal gain when brokers are competitively selected, more likely when they most fear retribution. Qualitative data suggest results from the laboratory game plausibly generalize to behavior in elections.

Replication files for Naval Power, Endogeneity, and Long-distance Disputes. Does an increase in naval power increase the likelihood of interstate disputes? While volumes have been written on the importance of naval power, we are left with little more than intuition and anecdotal evidence to provide potential answers to this question. Endogeneity issues in particular make it difficult to untangle the links between developing naval power and interstate conflict. Here I present a new instrument for naval power. Utilizing a new dataset of naval power and employing an instrumental variable analysis, I present one of the first large cross-national studies showing a significant link between naval power and a specific type of interstate conflict -– non-contiguous disputes. The findings have implications for the future actions of states whose naval strength is growing.
