Who Puts a Price on Carbon, Why and How? A Global Empirical Analysis of Carbon Pricing Policies

This article examines why some countries put a price on greenhouse gas emissions while others do not; and why some carbon pricing policies are more ambitious than others. Our study of a global sample of 200 countries by means of event history …

System Dynamics of Policy Change: Overcoming Some Blind Spots of Punctuated Equilibrium Theory

In this article, we analyze dynamics of policy change from the perspective of Punctuated Equilibrium Theory (PET). In particular, we investigate how economic crises impact on patterns of policy change in policy areas that vary in terms of their …

Resources for ggmcmc

ggmcmc is an R package aimed at providing tools for assessing and diagnosing convergence of Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulations, as well as for graphically display results from full MCMC analysis.

Extracting configurations of values mixing scores from experts and ignoramus using Bayesian modelling

The article proposes a method for producing configurations of values in firms. Values have an impact in the long-term survival of businesses and guide managerial decision-making. The method produces cross-comparable latent rates of configurations of …

Measuring the impact of an organizational inclusion programme on absence among employees with disabilities: A quasi‐experimental design

This article presents research on an organizational inclusion programme aiming to reduce absenteeism due to illness and injury among employees with disabilities. Qualitative fieldwork on the programme's characteristics was followed by a …

The Power of EI Competencies Over Intelligence and Individual Performance: A Task-Dependent Model

Prior research on emotional intelligence (EI) has highlighted the use of incremental models that assume EI and general intelligence (or _g_) make independent contributions to performance. Questioning this assumption, we study EI's moderation power …

Religious tides: The time‐variant effect of religion on morality policies

Morality policies evince a much closer relationship to religious doctrines than is the case in other policy areas and hence constitute a most likely case for the observation of religious effects on policymaking and regulatory change. Yet we still …

The Governance of Goal-Directed Networks and Network Tasks: An Empirical Analysis of European Regulatory Networks

In this article, we answer the research question “What factors affect the structural complexity of network administrative organizations (NAOs)?” The question warrants further research because of the lack of empirical studies on the topic. We design a …

Rule growth and government effectiveness: why it takes the capacity to learn and coordinate to constrain rule growth

This paper asks whether strong bureaucracies can effectively constrain the continuously growing stock of rules in modern democracies through organizational coordination and learning. To answer this question, the paper analyzes the growth of rule …

ggmcmc: Analysis of MCMC Samples and Bayesian Inference

ggmcmc is an R package for analyzing Markov chain Monte Carlo simulations from Bayesian inference. By using a well known example of hierarchical/multilevel modeling, the article reviews the potential uses and options of the package, ranging from …
