Introduction
My name is Herman Sahni. I am an assistant professor at Baldwin Wallace University with research interests in health economics, gender equality and CEO studies. My current research analyzes the effects of co-residing debilitating older family members on labor outcomes of younger family members, and gender differences in networking as a reason for wage differentials among CEOs.

First, we document an asymmetric threshold effect of tourism on economic growth. By utilizing an endogenous threshold regression model...

By applying threshold analysis and quantile regression techniques, we investigate the linearity of the relationship between tourism receipts and economic growth. We find that a threshold exists, below and above which the relationship between tourism receipts and economic growth changes. In our sample, the threshold for tourism receipts is at 3.82%...

Using a large sample of publicly traded firms from 1994-2002, we study the type of firms that female executives prefer to work in. We find that (1) female executives predominantly work in high risk firms and in high risk industries, (2) female CEOs have higher dismissal probability and female non-CEO executives (CFO, COO and President), in general,...

By taking advantage of a new hand-collected dataset on CEO educational networks between 1992 and 2013, this paper studies the association between gender and network connections. First, female CEOs are less likely to be “Influential” (that is, have extremely large networks). Second, while connected male CEOs are significantly rewarded, female CEOs a...
