Replication Data for: When and where do elections matter? A global test of the democratization by elections hypothesis, 1900-2010

Amanda B. Edgell
Successive multiparty elections in sub-Saharan Africa are associated with incremental democratization. Yet tests in other regions are less than encouraging. Non-significant findings on Latin America and post-communist Eurasia, as well as, conceptual criticism regarding the theory’s application in the contemporary Middle East, suggest that this may be a case of African exceptionalism.

Lower prices produce higher demand… or do they? A bank’s direct marketing to holders of “free” checking accounts show that a large discount on 60% APR overdrafts reduces overdraft usage, especially when bundled with a discount on debit card or auto-debit transactions. In contrast, messages mentioning overdraft availability without mentioning price increase usage. Neither change persists long after messages stop. These results do not square easily with classical models of consumer choice and firm competition....
