  • Mas-Colell, Andreu (2005)
    A general formalism on stochastic choice is presented. Tje Rationalizability and Recoverability (Identification) problems are discussed. For the identification issue parametric examples are analyzed by means of techniques ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Gancia, Gino; Zilibotti, Fabrizio (2012)
    We study the short- and long-run implications of offshoring on innovation, technology adoption, wage and income inequality in a Ricardian model with directed technical change. In our model, profit maximization determines ...
  • Rubio, M. del Mar (2003)
    This brief essay reviews the macro framework of oil and economy in Mexico in the early days of the oil industry, from 1900 to 1938. The first section displays the figures of production at the world level and shows how ...
  • Brückner, Marcus; Ciccone, Antonio; Tesei, Andrea (2011)
    We examine the effect of oil price fluctuations on democratic institutions over the 1960-2007 period. We also exploit the very persistent response of income to oil price fluctuations to study the effect of persistent (oil ...
  • Esteban, Joan; Sákovics, József (2002)
    We analyze a model of conflict with endogenous choice of effort, where subsets of the contenders may force the resolution to be sequential: First the alliance fights it out with the rest and – in case they win – later they ...
  • Marimon, Ramon; McGrattan, Ellen (1993)
  • Viader, Pelegrí; Bibiloni, Lluís; Paradís, Jaume (1998)
    Alfréd Rényi, in a paper of 1962, A new approach to the theory of Engel's series, proposed a problem related to the growth of the elements of an Engel's series. In this paper, we reformulate and solve Rényi's problem for ...
  • Bibiloni, Lluís; Viader, Pelegrí; Paradís, Jaume (2004)
    Theorem 1 of Euler’s paper of 1737 'Variae Observationes Circa Series Infinitas', states the astonishing result that the series of all unit fractions whose denominators are perfect powers of integers minus unity has sum ...
  • Talluri, Kalyan (2008)
    The Network Revenue Management problem can be formulated as a stochastic dynamic programming problem (DP or the\optimal" solution V *) whose exact solution is computationally intractable. Consequently, a number of heuristics ...
  • Niño-Mora, José (2000)
    We present a polyhedral framework for establishing general structural properties on optimal solutions of stochastic scheduling problems, where multiple job classes vie for service resources: the existence of an optimal ...
  • Germano, Fabrizio (2008)
    Within the spokes model of Chen and Riordan (2007) that allows for non-localized competition among arbitrary numbers of media outlets, we quantify the effect of concentration of ownership on quality and bias of media ...
  • Amat, Oriol; Oliveras, Ester (2001)
    From the year of its foundation, until the foundation of Revista de Contabilidad in 1997, REFC has been the only referred accounting journal in Spain. Published by the Spanish Association for Accounting and Business Administration ...
  • Cojuharenco, Irina; Cornelissen, Gert; Karelaia, Natalia (2011)
    We suggest that cultivating an individual's connectedness to others promotes socially responsible behavior both directly and indirectly – through increased perceived ability to make a difference. Individuals whose ...
  • Talluri, Kalyan (2003)
    We will call a game a reachable (pure strategy) equilibria game if starting from any strategy by any player, by a sequence of best-response moves we are able to reach a (pure strategy) equilibrium. We give a characterization of ...
  • Nagel, Rosemarie; Bosch-Domènech, Antoni; Satorra, Albert; García Montalvo, José (1999)
    "Beauty-contest" is a game in which participants have to choose, typically, a number in [0,100], the winner being the person whose number is closest to a proportion of the average of all chosen numbers. We describe and ...
  • Hauk, Esther; Hurkens, Sjaak (1999)
    We analyze which normal form solution concepts capture the notion of forward induction, as defined by van Damme (JET, 1989) in the class of generic two player normal form games preceded by an outside option. We find that ...
  • Hogarth, Robin; Karelaia, Natalia (2006)
    Research on judgment and decision making presents a confusing picture of human abilities. For example, much research has emphasized the dysfunctional aspects of judgmental heuristics, and yet, other findings suggest that ...
  • Hogarth, Robin (2006)
    It is well accepted that people resist evidence that contradicts their beliefs. Moreover, despite their training, many scientists reject results that are inconsistent with their theories. This phenomenon is discussed in ...
  • Ganuza, Juan José; Penalva, José S. (2006)
    How much information does an auctioneer want bidders to have in a private value environment? We address this question using a novel approach to ordering information structures based on the property that in private value ...
  • Kohatsu, Arturo; Yamazato, Makoto (2003)
    We study the existence of moments and the tail behaviour of the densities of storage processes. We give sufficient conditions for existence and non-existence of moments using the integrability conditions of submultiplicative ...
