Article
New air service routes are viewed as an important driver of local and regional economic growth by some communities. In the United States (U.S.), this recognition has led to an increase in: (1) the number of airports offering air service incentive agreements, and (2) the frequency with which new agreements are initiated. Despite the recognized econo...
Chapter
No senior Wall Street executives were imprisoned for actions that contributed to the global financial crisis. The few criminal prosecutions for management were reserved for executives at small and regional financial firms. This stands in stark contrast to the approximately 1,000 executives jailed after the 1989 savings and loan crisis. It also runs...
Article
Despite potential criminal behavior, no senior executives from major U.S. financial institutions were incarcerated for actions related to the 2008 financial crisis, an outcome decried by a variety of academics, journalists, judges, and the broader public. This critique is premised on a retributive theory of justice and the belief that incarceration...

Politicians, journalists, and academics alike highlight the paucity of criminal prosecutions for senior financial executives in the United States in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.

The typology has two dimensions: the degree of coordination within the regulated indus...

I do so by comparing its performance with that of the other federal banking regulators: the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (...

Missing from recent presidential agenda-setting scholarship is an examination of the president's impact on the agenda for war. To fill this gap, I conduct case studies of William McKinley's and George W. Bush's rhetoric before the Spanish-American and Iraq wars, respectively. Specifically, these presidents' agendas are examined through the lens of...
Article
What do we sacrifice when politics is in motion? The Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor argues that modern society has lost sight of what he calls "frameworks" or "horizons of significance", which help citizens "define the demands by which they judge their lives and measure, as it were, their fullness or emptiness." The economic and political cons...

This article investigates the current condition and possible future of Internet gambling in Canada. We apply Howlett's (1998) refinement of Kingdon's "policy windows" theory to examine four windows of opportunity through which Internet gambling might be placed on the Canadian policy agenda. We conclude that Internet gambling is unlikely to reach th...
Article
The status of online gambling in Canada is still uncertain as of present. There has been no serious move to tackle the issue even at the government level. Nevertheless, Canada's policy toward online gambling can be said to be not modeled either from the US or UK approaches. For instance, in the UK, online gambling has helped the country increase re...
