Abstract: This paper focuses on the use of mobile applications (apps) and the model of cross-regional communication in the app markets of the Greater China area (mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau), and explores the influence of policy, capital, and regional cultural tastes on the consumption of mobile apps. The cross-regional degree of mobile apps is used to measure the circulation of apps in different markets, and to single out mobile apps and their producers that can achieve cross-regional commercial success and gain market recognition in the Greater China area. Built on quantitative methods, the final samples consist of 1,124 mobile apps that are ranked among the top 500 in at least two markets. Further coding of these apps and their producers has been done according to market platform, founding year, price, whether the app is listed or not, the location of producers, app genres, and cross-regional degree. The results show that, in the mobile app market, no such thing as a Greater-China community exists. The consumption of apps in these markets is significantly influenced by policies, company capital, and local cultural tastes. In addition, mainland China is obviously isolated from other Greater China regions. Compared with the cross-regional degrees of apps in Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, the degree in mainland China is rather low.

Abstract: This study evaluates whether marriage creates interdependencies between spouses beyond those related to income and children and whether these interdependencies are related to marital stability. I use data from the National Survey of Families and Households (NSFH) to test whether men and women report being dependent on their spouses (defined as whether their lives would change if the marriage were to end) in six different areas of their lives. I find that there is evidence that spouses rely on each other for their standard of living, sex life, overall happiness, and parenthood, but not for their social lives or career opportunities. There are few differences between husbands and wives in their reported levels of dependency. However women report higher levels of dependency on their husbands for maintaining their standard of living, while men report higher levels of dependency on their wives for their ability to parent. I then test whether these dependencies lead to greater marital stability. Consistent with previous literature, I find evidence that women’s evaluations are generally more important for predicting marital stability than men’s. Only men’s evaluation of their overall happiness and their ability to parent are related to marital stability. However, when men believe a separation will negatively affect their wives’ happiness or sex life the couple is less likely to separate between waves, while wives’ beliefs about how separation will affect their husbands is unrelated to marital stability. Explanations for these findings are explored.

Abstract: Do subnational units benefit by having a greater number of federal legislative representatives, especially if those representatives have the same political preferences as one another, when securing federal funding? This paper attempts to address this question by determining the effect of the number of U.S. House members on a subnational unit’s ability to secure federal earmarks from 2007-2010. We find an increase in the number of House representatives by city, county, and metropolitan area leads to an increase in federal earmarks for that region. Second, we find an increase in shared party affiliation among the House and Senate representatives additionally leads to a positive effect, especially if the party affiliation is increasingly the same as the sitting president. These findings build upon the works of Lee (1998, 2000, 2003) and Berry et al. (2010) by providing a new political factor, the number of House representatives, to account for the distribution of federal discretionary spending. As for Gamm and Kousser (2013), this paper provides a positive effect of the number of representatives and federal earmarks, which may imply that cities with a greater number of representatives may lose on policy but win on funding priorities.
