Abstract:
In this study we investigate the magnitude of wage discrimination against women in the Iranian labor market by decomposing the male-female wage differential into differences in human capital and wage discrimination. We use the Oaxaca decomposition model in our econometric investigation. In our empirical analysis we use Iran’s Household Expenditure and Household Survey (HEIS) data for years 2002 and 2005. Our descriptive analysis suggested a generally low participation of women in labor market in both years. The Oaxaca decomposition model results suggest that in both, public and private, sectors a significant share of wage differentials is attributable to discrimination. Furthermore the gender difference in the quality of labor force (human capital) is estimated to be approximately equal and in some cases even superior for women. Oaxaca decomposition for separate skill categories suggests that wage discrimination for specialists and scientists category is relatively smaller than for less skilled employees.

Abstract:
On June 14, 2013, Iran will hold its 11th presidential election to replace Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. During his two terms in office, Ahmadinejad implemented a number of broad economic reforms and policies that have had a profound effect on socioeconomic conditions in Iran. In this Brief, Nader Habibi explores Ahmadinejad's eight year legacy by analyzing his economic ideas, political strategies and interactions with various centers of power. Habibi concludes that Ahmadinejad's emphasis on economic justice and reduction of inequality, in addition to his expansion of the Revolutionary Guards' role in the economy, is likely to have a long-term impact on the distribution of economic opportunities and efficiency in Iran.

Abstract:
This study focuses on how the market shares of leading exporters in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries have been impacted by major geopolitical events. The SUR regression model is used to investigate the impact of important events on relative markets. The main hypothesis is that GCC imports from the US are sensitive to the US involvement in the Arab-Israeli conflict and US military interventions in the Middle East. To investigate this theory, four important geopolitical events are considered: Gulf War I (1991), Second Palestinian Intifada (2000-2001), The September 11 terror attacks (2001) and the US invasion of Iraq (2003-2004). The statistical results suggest an association between both, the Gulf War I and the US invasion of Iraq, and changes in US market share in GCC imports. We observe a positive association between Gulf War I and the US market share in the aggregate imports of the GCC countries. On the other hand, the statistical results suggest a negative association between the invasion of Iraq and the US market share in aggregate imports of the GCC occurs. Among GCC countries, this negative association is only significant for the US market share in Saudi Arabia. Finally, the results for the second intifada/September 11th attacks are mixed.
