canine cyclic hematopoiesis
an abnormality of hematopoietic stem cells that results in detectable, cyclic fluctuations in numbers of circulating neutrophils. Affected dogs have an increased susceptibility to infections. The condition is inherited as an autosomal recessive in collies where it is occurs with a distinctive silver-gray coat color; called also gray collie syndrome.

Instead, our findings indicate that several mechanisms proposed by the theoretical literature are relevant in explaining the cyclicality of markups.
In this section, we review the theoretical models that relate competition and financial constraints to markup cyclicality to establish a theoretical basis for the interpretation of our results.
KEYWORDS: business cycle, wage cyclicality, Great Depression
First, in the period since 1997 for which we have data, only about 22 percent of households in the top 1 percent have stock options (that is, were given stock options during the preceding year or owned stock options when surveyed), and income cyclicality of households in the top 1 percent is roughly similar if one leaves out households with stock options.
Additional evidence confirming the high cyclicality of top incomes comes from verifying the out-of-sample forecasts made in Parker and Vissing-Jorgensen (2009) based on cyclicality estimates that excluded the recent recession.
