In this dissertation I use a quasi-experimental approach across five different applied microeconomic studies. These studies are diverse in the range, covering police and crime, the political economy of lobbying, the effects of the minimum wage, and ‘induced innovation’ by firms in response to different incentives. However, each study outlines a comprehensive quasi-experimental approach that addresses potential threats to the given identification strategy. As a result, these studies provide credible, causal estimates of a number of important economic parameters including: the police-crime elasticity, the value of political connections among US Federal lobbyists, the impact of the minimum wage, and different incentives affecting technology adoption and innovation at the firm-level.
