Note: this paper is targeted to an Economics audience, but computer scientists will find most of it easy to understand. This is a so-called "working paper" for which there is no real equivalent in Computer Science. Working papers in Economics are a commonplace method for sharing scholarly information and are usually of a very high standard. However, this document has not gone through a formal peer review process.
