Marijuana on Main Street? Estimating demand in markets with limited access
Monday, 21 July 2014 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Fred Gruen Economics Seminar Room, 1st Floor, HW Arndt Building #25A, Kingsley St, ANU
Marijuana is the most common illicit drug with vocal advocates for legalization. Among other things, legalization would increase access and remove the stigma of illegal behavior. Our model of use disentangles the role of access from preferences and shows that selection into access is not random.

The Event Panorama: Linking SVCs in White Hmong
Wednesday, 23 July 2014 at 4:15 PM - 5:15 PM

Serial verb constructions (SVCs) are well known to function in many languages to increase the detail and complexity of the clause. Typical SVC functions include adding arguments, providing aspectual and deictic information, and conveying resultative and causative meanings. In addition to extending the clause in ways such as these, SVCs in White Hmong (Hmong-Mien) are often used in narrative texts to provide a multi-focal construal of the events described.

While agricultural pastures may have high biodiversity potential in fragmented landscapes, in many areas around the world, tree plantations are replacing them.

Thursday, 24 July 2014 at 4:00 PM - 6:30 PM
