Sorry for the SPAM but I think many of you might find today's talk in the PPE Seminar very interesting.

<div>The paper has an interesting structural estimation that could be applied to other questions.</div>

<p class="MsoNormal">The Faculty of Arts and Sciences and The Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University are sponsoring a seminar on formal and quantitative political research. The Program on Positive Political Economy (PPE) supports research-related
 activities that integrate the study of economics and politics, whether by studying economic behavior in the political process or political behavior in the marketplace. In general, positive political economy is concerned with showing how observed differences
 among institutions affect political and economic outcomes in various social, economic, and political systems and how the institutions themselves change and develop in response to individual and collective beliefs, preferences, and strategies. All interested
 faculty and students are invited to attend.</p>
