  • Oliveras, Ester; Castillo, David (2008)
    As companies and shareholders begin to note the potential repercussions of intangible assets upon business results, the inability of the traditional financial statement model to reflect these new ways of creating business ...
  • Bosch-Domènech, Antoni; Silvestre, Joaquim (2012)
    Various experimental procedures aimed at measuring individual risk aversion involve a list of pairs of alternative prospects. We first study the widely used method by Holt and Laury (2002), for which we find that the removal ...
  • Heinemann, Frank; Nagel, Rosemarie; Ockenfels, Peter (2004)
    This paper explores three aspects of strategic uncertainty: its relation to risk, predictability of behavior and subjective beliefs of players. In a laboratory experiment we measure subjects’ certainty equivalents for three ...
  • Greenacre, Michael (2008)
    Subcompositional coherence is a fundamental property of Aitchison’s approach to compositional data analysis, and is the principal justification for using ratios of components. We maintain, however, that lack of subcompositional ...
  • Simonoff, Jeffrey S.; Udina, Frederic (1995)
    Although the histogram is the most widely used density estimator, it is well--known that the appearance of a constructed histogram for a given bin width can change markedly for different choices of anchor position. In ...
  • Nieto, Belén; Rubio, Gonzalo (2007)
    This paper analyzes empirically the volatility of consumption-based stochastic discount factors as a measure of implicit economic fears by studying its relationship with future economic and stock market cycles. Time-varying ...
  • Marianov, Vladimir; Serra, Daniel (2009)
    The P-median problem is a classical location model “par excellence”. In this paper we, first examine the early origins of the problem, formulated independently by Louis Hakimi and Charles ReVelle, two of the fathers of the ...
  • Fernández-Kranz, Daniel; Merino, Anna (2005)
    La creciente globalización económica y la mayor transparencia informativa han favorecido la aparición de “consumidores socialmente responsables” y han marcado el pistoletazo de salida para las empresas en su carrera para ...
  • Banal-Estañol, Albert; Seldeslachts, Jo (2009)
    This paper proposes an explanation as to why some mergers fail, based on the interaction between the pre- and post-merger processes. We argue that failure may stem from informational asymmetries arising from the pre-merger ...
  • Ramalhinho-Lourenço, Helena; Pinto, José; Portugal, Rita (1998)
    We present new metaheuristics for solving real crew scheduling problems in a public transportation bus company. Since the crews of these companies are drivers, we will designate the problem by the bus-driver scheduling ...
  • Devillanova, Carlo; Garcia Fontes, Walter (1998)
    This paper uses Social Security records to study internal migration in Spain. This is the first paper that uses this data source, which has some advantages with respect to existing data sources: it includes only ...
  • Kulkarni, Sanjeev R.; Lugosi, Gábor (1997)
    We obtain minimax lower bounds on the regret for the classical two--armed bandit problem. We provide a finite--sample minimax version of the well--known log $n$ asymptotic lower bound of Lai and Robbins. Also, in contrast ...
  • Renou, Ludovic; Schlag, Karl (2008)
    This paper introduces a new solution concept, a minimax regret equilibrium, which allows for the possibility that players are uncertain about the rationality and conjectures of their opponents. We provide several applications ...
  • Mayoral, Laura (2006)
    A new parametric minimum distance time-domain estimator for ARFIMA processes is introduced in this paper. The proposed estimator minimizes the sum of squared correlations of residuals obtained after filtering a series ...
  • Cordella, Tito; Foucault, Thierry (1996)
    We analyze the impact of a minimum price variation (tick) and time priority on the dynamics of quotes and the trading costs when competition for the order flow is dynamic. We find that convergence to competitive outcomes ...
  • González Luna, Libertad (2014)
    I document extremely son-biased sex ratios at birth among Asian-born parents in Spain. Using data on the universe of registered births in Spain during 2007- 2012, I show that there are 117 boys per 100 girls born to Indian ...
  • Aragonés, Enriqueta; Palfrey, Thomas R. (2000)
    This paper examines competition in the standard one- dimensional Downsian model of two-candidate elections, but where one candidate (A) enjoys an advantage over the other candidate (D). Voters' preferences are Euclidean, ...
  • Hurkens, Sjaak; Jeon, Doh-Shin (2009)
    In this paper, we study how access pricing affects network competition when subscription demand is elastic and each network uses non-linear prices and can apply termination-based price discrimination. In the case of a fixed ...
  • Giacomini, Raffaella; Rossi, Barbara (2014)
    The goal of this paper is to develop formal tests to evaluate the relative in-sample per- formance of two competing, misspecified, non-nested models in the presence of possible data instability. Compared to previous ...
  • Abellán, José M.; Pinto, José L. (1997)
    En el presente trabajo, los a\~nos de vida ajustados por la calidad (AVAC), son caracterizados como funciones de utilidad von Newman--Morgenstern. Esta caracterizaci\'on se efect\'ua para dos problemas de elecci\'on: ...
