  • Andrés, Javier; Garcia, Jaume (1991)
    In this paper we estimate wage equations for the Spanish industry using time series data on 85 industrial sectors, which allows us to distinguish between aggregate and sector specific effects in wage determination. Industry ...
  • Cuadras Morató, Xavier; Mateos-Planas, Xavier (2006)
    A skill-biased change in technology can account at once for the changes observed in a number of important variables of the US labour market between 1970 and 1990. These include the increasing inequality in wages, both ...
  • Shapiro, Joel (2002)
    Wage inequality in the United States has grown substantially in the past two decades. Standard supply-demand analysis in the empirics of inequality (e.g.Katz and Murphy (1992)) indicates that we may attribute some of this ...
  • Haefke, Christian; Sonntag, Marcus; van Rens, Thijs (2007)
    Recent research in macroeconomics emphasizes the role of wage rigidity in accounting for the volatility of unemployment fluctuations. We use worker-level data from the CPS to measure the sensitivity of wages of newly hired ...
  • Camps, Enriqueta (2003)
    This paper deals with changes in managerial practices in Catalonia in an age of nascent capitalism (1830-1925) and adaptive family strategies in order to face the absence of state welfare. During the 19 t h Century and in ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Zilibotti, Fabrizio (1994)
  • Pollock, Gregory B.; Cabrales, Antonio (1998)
    A simple variant of trait group selection, employing predators as the mechanism underlying group selection, supports contingent reproductive suicide as altruism (i.e., behavior lowering personal fitness while augmenting ...
  • Kohatsu, Arturo (1999)
    We introduce a variation of the proof for weak approximations that is suitable for studying the densities of stochastic processes which are evaluations of the flow generated by a stochastic differential equation on a ...
  • Gaytan, Alejandro; Rancière, Romain (2004)
    This paper presents empirical support for the existence of wealth effects in the contribution of financial intermediation to economic growth, and offers a theoretical explanation for these effects. Using GMM dynamic panel ...
  • Greenacre, Michael; Groenen, Patrick J. F. (2013)
    We construct a weighted Euclidean distance that approximates any distance or dissimilarity measure between individuals that is based on a rectangular cases-by-variables data matrix. In contrast to regular multidimensional ...
  • Delicado, Pedro; del Rio, Manuel (1996)
    In the fixed design regression model, additional weights are considered for the Nadaraya--Watson and Gasser--M\"uller kernel estimators. We study their asymptotic behavior and the relationships between new and classical ...
  • Greenacre, Michael (2004)
    This paper establishes a general framework for metric scaling of any distance measure between individuals based on a rectangular individuals-by-variables data matrix. The method allows visualization of both individuals ...
  • Apesteguia, Jose; Ballester, Miguel A. (2011)
    Two main school choice mechanisms have attracted the attention in the literature: Boston and deferred acceptance (DA). The question arises on the ex-ante welfare implications when the game is played by participants that ...
  • Gennaioli, Nicola; Shleifer, Andrei (2009)
    We present a model of intuitive inference, called “local thinking,” in which an agent combines data received from the external world with information retrieved from memory to evaluate a hypothesis. In this model, selected ...
  • Hansen, Stephen Eliot; McMahon, Michael (2010)
    We test whether outside experts have information not available to insiders by using the voting record of the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee. Members with more private information should vote more often against ...
  • Ellman, Matthew; Germano, Fabrizio (2004)
    We model the market for news as a two-sided market where newspapers sell news to readers who value accuracy and sell space to advertisers who value advert-receptive readers. We show that monopolistic newspapers under-report ...
  • Canova, Fabio (2004)
    This paper investigates what has caused output and inflation volatility to fall in the US using a small scale structural model using Bayesian techniques and rolling samples. There are instabilities in the posterior of the ...
  • Celentani, Marco; Loveira-Pazó, Rosa (2004)
    We study relative performance evaluation in executive compensation when executives have private information about their ability. We assume that the joint distribution of an individual firm’s profit and market movements ...
  • Dolado, Juan J.; Gonzalo, Jesús; Mayoral, Laura (2005)
    This paper proposes a new time-domain test of a process being I(d), 0 < d = 1, under the null, against the alternative of being I(0) with deterministic components subject to structural breaks at known or unknown dates, ...
  • Colomer, Josep M. (2007)
    In order to have references for discussing mathematical menus in political science, I review the most common types of mathematical formulae used in physics and chemistry, as well as some mathematical advances in economics. ...
