  • Apesteguia, Jose; Ballester, Miguel A. (2012)
    We propose a rule of decision-making, the sequential procedure guided by routes, and show that three influential boundedly rational choice models can be equivalently understood as special cases of this rule. In addition, ...
  • Hauk, Esther; Nagel, Rosemarie (2000)
    We examine the effect of unilateral and mutual partner selection in the context of prisoner's dilemmas experimentally. Subjects play simultaneously several finitely repeated two-person prisoner's dilemma games. We find ...
  • Cuadras Morató, Xavier (2005)
    This paper provides a search theoretical model that captures two phenomena that have characterized several episodes of monetary history: currency shortages and the circulation of privately issued notes. As usual in these ...
  • Glaeser, Edward L.; Ponzetto, Giacomo A. M.; Tobio, Kristina (2010)
    One approach to urban areas emphasizes the existence of certain immutable relationships, such as Zipf's or Gibrat's Law. An alternative view is that urban change reflects individual responses to changing tastes or ...
  • León, Gianmarco (2012)
    This paper provides empirical evidence of the persistent effect of exposure to political violence on human capital accumulation. I exploit the variation in conflict location and birth cohorts to identify the longand short-term ...
  • Canova, Fabio; Ciccarelli, Matteo (2011)
    We investigate macroeconomic fluctuations in the Mediterranean basin, their similarities and convergence. A model with four indicators, roughly covering the West, the East and the Middle East and the North Africa portions ...
  • Glaeser, Edward L.; Kerr, William R.; Ponzetto, Giacomo A. M. (2009)
    Employment growth is strongly predicted by smaller average establishment size, both across cities and across industries within cities, but there is little consensus on why this relationship exists. Traditional economic ...
  • Bosch-Rosa, Ciril; Meissner, Thomas; Bosch-Domènech, Antoni (2015)
    Smith et al. (1988) reported large bubbles and crashes in experimental asset markets, a result that has been replicated by a large literature. Here we test whether the occurrence of bubbles depends on the experimental ...
  • Celentani, Marco; Ganuza, Juan José; Peydró, José L. (2003)
    We analyze the impact of different types of international conventions that require signatory countries to penalize domestic firms that are found to have bribed foreign public officials. We analyze enforcement of penalties under ...
  • Gerard, Hugo; Nimark, Kristoffer (2008)
    This paper combines multivariate density forecasts of output growth, inflation and interest rates from a suite of models. An out-of-sample weighting scheme based on the predictive likelihood as proposed by Eklund and ...
  • Canova, Fabio (2009)
    I discuss the identifiability of a structural New Keynesian Phillips curve when it is embedded in a small scale dynamic stochastic general equilibrium model. Identification problems emerge because not all the structural ...
  • Arruñada, Benito; Andonova, Veneta (2008)
    We argue that in the development of the Western legal system, cognitive departures are the main determinant of the optimal degree of judicial rule-making. Judicial discretion, seen here as the main distinguishing feature ...
  • Marcet, Albert; Marimon, Ramon (1991)
  • Hurkens, Sjaak; Schlag, Karl H. (1999)
    We analyze the role of commitment in pre-play communication for ensuring efficient evolutionarily stable outcomes in coordination games. All players are a priori identical as they are drawn from the same population. In ...
  • Satorra, Albert; Neudecker, Heinz (1995)
    Asymptotic chi-squared test statistics for testing the equality of moment vectors are developed. The test statistics proposed are generalized Wald test statistics that specialize for different settings by inserting ...
  • Kray, Aart; Ventura, Jaume (2001)
    Business cycles are both less volatile and more synchronized with the world cycle in rich countries than in poor ones. We develop two alternative explanations based on the idea that comparative advantage causes rich countries ...
  • Delicado, Pedro; Placencia, Iolanda (1997)
    When the behaviour of a specific hypothesis test statistic is studied by a Monte Carlo experiment, the usual way to describe its quality is by giving the empirical level of the test. As an alternative to this procedure, ...
  • Herrero, Carmen; Pinto, José Luis; Bleichrodt, Han (1997)
    Starting from a finite or countable set of states of health, and assuming the existence of an objective transitive preference relation on that set, we propose a way of performing interpersonal comparisons of states of health. ...
  • Gossner, Olivier (1996)
    We introduce two ways of comparing information structures, say ${\cal I}$ and ${\cal J}$. First we say that ${\cal I}$ is richer than ${\cal J}$ when for every compact game $G$, all correlated equilibrium distributions ...
