What are new interview methods and practices in our new ''interview society'' and how do they relate to traditional social science research? This volume interrogates the interview as understood, used - and under-used - by anthropologists. It puts the interview itself in the hotseat by exploring the nature of the interview, interview techniques, and illustrative cases of interview use. What is a successful and representative interview? How are interviews best transcribed and integrated into our writing? Is interview knowledge production safe, ethical and representative? And how are interviews.

Is American health care uniquely inefficient?

The U.S. health system has been described as the most competitive, heterogeneous, inefficient, fragmented, and advanced system of care in the world. In this paper, we consider two questions: First, is the U.S. health care system productively efficient relative to other wealthy countries, in the sense of producing better health for a given bundle of hospital beds, physicians, nurses, and other factor inputs? Second, is the U.S. allocatively efficient relative to other countries, in the sense of providing highly valued care to consumers? For both questions, the answer is most likely no. Although no country can claim to have eliminated inefficiency, the U.S. has fragmented care, high administra...

Birds of Tifft

Poetry. "At once rigorous and casual, conceptual and hilarious, BIRDS OF TIFFT offers us a tour through a nature preserve reclaimed from industry. Sometimes our guide reads Tifft like an old-school naturalist, identifying flora and fauna and noting the weather; sometimes he reads it like a contemporary poet, delighting in the visual beauties and ethical ironies of a post-industrial landscape. Ultimately, however, our guide demonstrates that ecopoetics gains its power from inhabiting both positions at once. By neither idealizing nature nor demonizing industry, he shows us our own equal participation in both, and thereby animates a dialectic between 'the bittern and the train / the tulip and the dump.' Inviting us to think through our own participation in conjunctions such as these, Skinner enacts an innovative and deeply poethical practice—in these poems, 'proportion's restored / to think with others'"—Brian Teare.

Housing Wealth and Aggregate Saving

The recent appreciation in housing value can have large effects on aggregate saving. This paper uses a simulation model to show that aggregate saving will decline substantially if life cycle homeowners spend down their housing windfalls. Homeowners with a bequest motive, however, may save more to assist their children in buying the now more expensive housing. To test whether families spend their housing capital gains, I use housing, income, and consumption data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics. While a cross-section time-series regression implies that housing wealth does affect saving, a fixed-effects model finds no effect

There is probably no national day that has such global popularity as St. Patrick's Day. On St. Patrick's Day, it is reputed that 'Everyone is Irish'. What are the factors and factions that give the day such popular appeal? Is St. Patrick's Day the same around the world - in Japan, Northern Ireland and Montserrat - as it is in the Republic of Ireland and the United States? Just how does 'Irishness' figure in the celebration and commemoration of St. Patrick's Day, and how has this day been commoditized, consumed and contested? Does St. Patrick's Day 'belong' to the people, the nation or the brewery?This edited volume brings together the best St. Patrick's Day and Irish Studies scholars from th...
