Title:”Can Labor Market Discrimination Explain Racial Disparities in Schooling? Evidence from WWII” Abstract: Can the racial gap in labor market earnings explain black-white disparities in the schooling of the next generation?  To answer this, we exploit the large increase in labor demand in markets that received WWII defense industry contracts.  This increase in labor demand combined with a policy that prohibited discrimination by race and ethnicity in the defense industries resulted in significant increases in African American earnings and declines…

Title: Renal Relationships: Understanding Living Kidney Donor Relationship Patterns Abstract: Who do we turn to in times of need? Traditionally, social support research has shown a strong preference to rely on strong ties in these scenarios – often, even when weak ties might be better positioned to help.

In the first chapter paper I test whether the return to college education is the result of human capital accumulation or instead reflects the fact that attending college signals higher ability to employers.  The second chapter provides evidence that parental incarceration increases children’s educational attainment.
