    Much of empirical economics involves regression analysis. However, does the presentation of results affect economists’ ability to make inferences for decision making purposes? In a survey, 257 academic economists were asked ...

    Estimates of the e¤ect of education on GDP (the social return to education)have been hard to reconcile with micro evidence on the private return. We present a simple explanation that combines two ideas: imperfect substitution ...

    The aim of this paper is to simulate the effects of the Spanish 1999 tax reform on the married women’s labour behaviour and welfare in a partial equilibrium context. We estimate by maximum likelihood two models of labour supply ...
