Nobel committee cites two CCBA faculty
Daniel Bernhardt, IBE Distinguished Professor of Economics at CCBA since
1997, was pleased to learn earlier this month that his work had been cited
by the Nobel committee considering the 2001 award for economics. Bernhardt
received recognition for "Strategic Promotion and Compensation,"
published in 1995 in Review of Economic Studies.
Also cited was In-Koo Cho, who joined the faculty in 1999 as William Kinkead
Distinguished Professor of Economics. Cho's work, "Signaling Games
and Stable Equilibria," was deemed by the committee "an influential
paper in this genre." Written with his colleague David Kreps of Stanford,
the paper appeared in The Quarterly Journal of Economics in 1987.
not a community benefit
When subjected to a rigorous cost-benefit analysis, casino gambling is
not a economic development winner for the host community according to
Earl Grinols, professor of economics.
Analysis of data compiled from around the country suggests that opening
a casino eventually costs a community at least 1.9 times more than its
benefits, which amounts to a yearly national loss of at least $27.5 billion.
Grinols published his research in Managerial and Decision Economics with
co-author David B. Mustard.

at a price
Imposing "congestion pricing" on flights during peak hours may
work - so long as they are implemented with care and flexibility, according
to CCBA economist Jan K. Brueckner,
an expert on airline economics who has analyzed the possible effects of
congestion pricing at U.S. airports.
Times ranking includes EMBA program
The CCBA Executive MBA Program (EMBA) was ranked #20 in the world and
#11 among US programs in the Financial Times survey of Executive
MBA programs. The 2001 rankings were based on surveys of recent graduates
of more than 70 business schools around the world and questionnaires completed
by participating universities. The rankings were calculated according
to a school's performance in three broad areas: career progression of
the graduate; diversity and international experience; and faculty research.
