Accepted Peer Review Paper: The Effects of Conference Realignment on NCAA Athletic Departments
April 13, 2015 Jared Pincin Accepted Peer-Reviewed Papers

Written with Adam Hoffer

Published in Applied Economics Letters

Abstract:

This study uses a panel of NCAA Division I athletic department revenue and expenditure data from 227 public colleges and universities to empirically investigate the effects of conference realignment over the period 2006-2011. The results show that schools moving into automatic-qualifying conferences experienced nearly $12.15 million in increased revenue, nearly matched by $10.12 million in added expenditures. Schools moving into any FBS conference saw revenues increase by $6.43 million, with expenses growing $5.03 million. Schools switching conferences to a non-FBS conference did not see a statistically significant change in revenues or expenses. Schools with football programs saw revenues increase by $2.94 million and profits increase by close to $1 million. Despite the increase in revenues, no change to institutional subsidies was observed.

A College Money Game That Works
March 26, 2015 Jared Pincin Op-Ed

Written with Adam Hoffer

This op-ed argues that while  college athletics have never been in a more lucrative financial position than they are now, only coaches, colleges, conferences, and the NCAA are able to take advantage of the financial windfall. Student-athletes are short-changed due to institutional barriers.

Accepted Peer Review Paper: The Effects of Revenue Changes on NCAA Athletic Departments’ Expenditures
March 25, 2015 Jared Pincin Accepted Peer-Reviewed Papers

With Adam Hoffer.

Published in the Journal of Sport and Social Issues

Abstract:

This study uses a panel of NCAA Division I athletic department revenue and expenditure data from 225 public colleges and universities to empirically investigate the behavior of athletic departments over the period 2006-2011. Three empirical relationships were explored: (1) how changes in total revenue affect disaggregated expenditure categories, (2) how disaggregated revenue streams influence total expenditures, and (3) whether changes in revenue categories change the size of the athletic department’s subsidy. The results show that additional athletic revenue increases expenditures for coaches 7.5 times more than direct expenditures for student athletes, a ratio that increases for schools in power conferences. For every one dollar increase in ticket sale revenue, total expenditures can rise by $0.83 and reduce a school’s athletic subsidy by $0.19.

Accepted Peer-Reviewed Paper: Political Power and Aid Tying Practices in the Development Assistance Committee Countries
July 10, 2013 Jared Pincin Accepted Peer-Reviewed Papers

Published version in Oxford Development Studies.

Abstract: This paper examines on a panel of 22 OECD Development Assistance Committee countries whether fragmentation of executive power and the degree of competition in the legislative branch of government increases the amount of tied aid over the 1979-2009 period. Fragmentation and competition are broadly defined as the degree to which the costs of a dollar of aid expenditure are internalized by decision makers and the relative strength of the government’s position vis-à-vis legislative composition respectively.  The empirical results show tied aid, both in levels and as a percentage of total aid, increases as the number of decision makers within the government increases and decreases as the proportion of excess seats a governing coalition holds above a simple majority increases.

Save the oysters by privatizing them
September 12, 2011 Jared Pincin Op-Ed

http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2011-09-12/news/bs-ed-oysters-20110912_1_oyster-beds-oyster-population-eastern-oyster

This op-ed argues that government regulation and ownership of the oyster beds in the Chesapeake Bay have failed to protect the Eastern oyster, whose population has declined to 0.3 percent of the historic levels of the late 1880’s. Instead, policymakers should privatize the oyster beds, which would allow mutually beneficial exchange and provide incentives for proper use and conservation.
