We investigate the salary returns to the ability to play football with both feet. The majority of footballers are predominantly right footed. Using two data sets, a cross-section of footballers in the five main European leagues and a panel of players in the German Bundesliga, we find robust evidence of a substantial salary premium for two-footed ab...

They estimate a construction equation for multifamily rental housing where the level of multifamily construction, measured by the units in structures with more than one unit, depends on how the asset price of rental housing compares with construction costs. ...
