Download (1MB) | Preview


My dissertation is a collection of essays on topics in public economics. In particular, the essays examine questions pertaining to the economics of nonprofit organizations. The first two chapters of my dissertation address the financing of nonprofits, specifically through charitable giving. In these two chapters I pay particular attention to the efficacy of certain fundraising strategies. The third chapter of my dissertation explores the effectiveness of pay-for-performance incentive schemes in nonprofit institutions. This work identifies the impact of different incentive schemes on worker effort, as well as the types of workers who select into nonprofit sector versus for-profit sector jobs.
