Abstract: We investigate whether the conditional CAPM helps explain the value premium using varying-coefficient single-index model. We find conditional beta co-moves with unemployment and inflation, and the price-earnings ratio. The alpha is smaller for the conditional CAPM than for the unconditional CAPM; nevertheless, neither model fully explains the value premium.

Abstract: There are 569 federally-recognized American Indian tribal governments in the United States today. Tribal governments are long-standing, legally-recognized sovereign powers. They govern over 50 million acres across 34 states which contain around 30% of US western coals reserves and 20% of oil reserves. Our paper will examine how Native nations are responding to climate change and the sources of variation in their strategies.

Climate change adaptation presents unique challenges for America's Native nations. American Indian tribal governments' reservation lands are integral to both subsistence and culture and yet especially vulnerable to changing climates. Native nations face compounded vulnerability to climate crises due to profound socioeconomic disadvantages and political marginalization.

Similarly, climate change mitigation presents unique challenges for tribal governments. Recent political initiatives, such as tribal opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline and to the Cherry Point coal terminal, have demonstrated Native leadership in response to fossil fuel consumption. All the same, some tribes sit atop significant reserves of oil and coal, with economies that depend heavily on natural resource extraction. The incoming Trump administration has expressed a desire for increased extraction on these Native lands. How do tribal governments balance their commitment to environmental protection, their political and economic vulnerabilities, and their opportunities to mine and drill?

Our paper will review the existing work on how Native nations have responded to climate change. A plethora of case studies—from both practitioners and academics—have examined portions of tribal governments' climate change policies. We will identify gaps, common themes, and sources of variation in these case studies. Our work will illuminate pathways forward in the study of Native nations and climate change.
