SelfInterest, Inequality, and Entitlement in Majoritarian DecisionMaking
 Quarterly Journal of Political Science
, 2006
"... ABSTRACT We experimentally test competing theories of threeplayer majoritarian bargaining models with fixed, known disagreement values. Subjects are randomly assigned to three roles: a proposer and two types of voters. Each role is randomly assigned a disagreement value, i.e. a given amount of mon ..."

' payoffs are determined by the proposal; if the proposal is rejected, each player receives his or her reservation value. We assess the ability of three behavioral hypotheses selfinterest, egalitarianism, and inequalityaversion to account for our results. Our primary design variable is the proposer
Inequality and happiness: are Europeans and Americans different?
, 2004
"... We study the effect of the level of inequality in society on individual wellbeing using a total of 123,668 answers to a survey question about ‘‘happiness’’. We find that individuals have a lower tendency to report themselves happy when inequality is high, even after controlling for individual incom ..."

of the political spectrum are unhappy about inequality; whereas in the US the happiness of the poor and of those on the left is uncorrelated with inequality. Interestingly, in the US, the rich are bothered by inequality. Comparing across continents, we find that leftwingers in Europe are more hurt by inequality
The inheritance of inequality
 Journal of Economic Perspectives
, 2002
"... People differ markedly in their views concerning the appropriate role of government in reducing economic inequality. Selfinterest and differences in values explain part of the conflict over redistribution. But by far the most important fault line is that people hold different beliefs about why the ..."

Computation of Piecewise Quadratic Lyapunov Functions for Hybrid Systems
 IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control
, 1998
"... . This paper presents a computational approach to stability analysis of nonlinear and hybrid systems. The search for a piecewise quadratic Lyapunov function is formulated as a convex optimization problem in terms of linear matrix inequalities. The relation to frequency domain methods such as the cir ..."

A Linear Matrix Inequality Approach to H∞ Control
 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ROBUST AND NONLINEAR CONTROL
, 1994
"... The continuous and discretetime H∞ control problems are solved via elementary manipulations on linear matrix inequalities (LMI). Two interesting new features emerge through this approach: solvability conditions valid for both regular and singular problems, and an LMIbased parametrization of all H ..."

Inequality among World Citizens: 1820 1992
, 2003
"... This paper investigates the distribution of well being among world citizens during the last two centuries. The estimates show that inequality of world distribution of income worsened from the beginning of the 19th century to World War II and after that seems to have stabilized or to have grown mo ..."

the failure of income inequality to improve in the last decades. (JEL D31, F0, N0, O0) The revival of interest in empirical growth economics during the 1990's brought with it a revival of interest in the world distribution of income. Indeed, most of the recent literature on convergence of GDP per

"... In 2002, in the opening presentation to the first conference of this Melbourne InstituteThe Australian series, I said that Australia in the twenty first century would have all of productivityraising economic reform, economic growth and equity in income distribution, or none of them (Garnaut 2002). ..."

Total Factor Productivity growth languished and then disappeared. Total Factor Productivity is about the same now as a
