    When to allow Research Joint Ventures (RJVs) or not is an important instrument in the development of an optimal R&D policy. The regulator, however, is unlikely to know all the relevant information to regulate R&D optimally. ...

    D'Aspremont and Jacquemin's (1988) model is extended to study alternative configurations of research agreements in a two--country integrated world economy. Under unambiguous conditions on spillovers we show that: 1) Allowing ...
  • Voigtländer, Nico; Voth, Joachim (2012)
    In this paper, we assess the determinants of long-run persistence of local culture, and examine the success of policy interventions designed to change attitudes. We analyze anti-Semitic attitudes drawing on individual-level ...

  • Bertsimas, Dimitris; Niño-Mora, José (1994)
    We develop a mathematical programming approach for the classical PSPACE - hard restless bandit problem in stochastic optimization. We introduce a hierarchy of n (where n is the number of bandits) increasingly stronger ...
  • Niño-Mora, José (1999)
    We show that if performance measures in a stochastic scheduling problem satisfy a set of so-called partial conservation laws (PCL), which extend previously studied generalized conservation laws (GCL), then the problem ...

    It is shown that preferences can be constructed from observed choice behavior in a way that is robust to indifferent selection (i.e., the agent is indifferent between two alternatives but, nevertheless, is only observed ...
  • Talluri, Kalyan; van Ryzin, Garrett (2000)
    Customer choice behavior, such as 'buy-up' and 'buy-down', is an important phe-nomenon in a wide range of industries. Yet there are few models or methodologies available to exploit this phenomenon within yield management systems. ...
