  • Canova, Fabio; Sala, Luca (2005)
    We investigate identifiability issues in DSGE models and their consequences for parameter estimation and model evaluation when the objective function measures the distance between estimated and model impulse responses. We ...
  • Gómez Puig, Marta; García Montalvo, José (1994)
    This paper presents an analysis of the credibility of the EMS currencies that covers the period before and after the increase in the bands of fluctuation. Our credibility indicator is based on the inferred probabilities ...
  • Amat, Oriol; Blake, John; Clarke, Julia (1994)
  • Temin, Peter; Voth, Joachim (2006)
    London’s financial market underwent dramatic change after 1700. More limited than Paris or Amsterdam in the seventeenth century, London became the leading financial centre in Europe in the eighteenth century. There is an ...
  • Freixas, Xavier; Martin, Antoine; Skeie, David (2010)
    A major lesson of the recent financial crisis is that the interbank lending market is crucial for banks facing large uncertainty regarding their liquidity needs. This paper studies the efficiency of the interbank lending ...
  • Pascali, Luigi (2011)
    Are differences in local banking development long-lasting? Do they affect long-term economic performance? I answer these questions by relying on an historical development that occurred in Italian cities during the 15th century. ...
  • Gennaioli, Nicola; Martin, Alberto; Rossi, Stefano (2013)
    We analyze holdings of public bonds by over 20,000 banks in 191 countries, and the role of these bonds in 20 sovereign defaults over 1998-2012. Banks hold many public bonds (on average 9% of their assets), particularly in ...
  • Gaytan, Alejandro; Rancière, Romain (2001)
    How do the liquidity functions of banks affect investment and growth at different stages of economic development? How do financial fragility and the costs of banking crises evolve with the level of wealth of countries? We ...
  • Ueda, Masako (2000)
    Why do some start-up firms raise funds from banks and others from venture capitalists? To answer this question, I develop a model of start-up financing when intellectual property rights are not well protected. The upside ...
  • Hart, Sergiu; Mas-Colell, Andreu (1994)
  • Dagan, Nir; Serrano, Roberto; Volij, Oscar (1996)
    We study a decentralized matching model in a large exchange economy, in which trade takes place through non--cooperative bargaining in coalitions of finite size. Under essentially the same conditions of core equivalence, ...
  • Charness, Gary (1998)
    This paper investigates whether information about fairness types can be useful in lowering dispute costs and enhancing bargaining efficiency. An experiment was conducted in which subjects were first screened using a ...
  • Charness, Gary; Corominas, Margarida (2000)
    While markets are often decentralized, in many other cases agents in one role can only negotiate with a proper subset of the agents in the complementary role. There may be proximity issues or restricted communication ...
  • Bailén, Jose M. (1994)
  • Arruñada, Benito; Vázquez, Xosé H. (2009)
    The paper explores the consequences that relying on different behavioral assumptions in training managers may have on their future performance. We argue that training with an emphasis on the standard assumptions used in ...
  • Epure, Mircea (2012)
    We use best practice benchmarking rationales to propose a dynamic research design that accounts for the endogenous components of across-firms heterogeneous routines to study changes in performance and their link to ...
  • Voth, Joachim; Ferguson, Thomas (2008)
    This paper examines the value of connections between German industry and the Nazi movement in early 1933. Drawing on previously unused contemporary sources about management and supervisory board composition and stock ...
  • Niño-Mora, José (2000)
    Most research on single machine scheduling has assumed the linearity of job holding costs, which is arguably not appropriate in some applications. This motivates our study of a model for scheduling $n$ classes of stochastic jobs ...
  • Adams, Renée; Funk, Patricia (2009)
    The representation of women in top corporate officer positions is steadily increasing. However, little is known about the impact this will have. A large literature documents that women are different from men in their choices ...
  • Le Menestrel, Marc; Lemaire, Bertrand (2004)
    We represent interval ordered homothetic preferences with a quantitative homothetic utility function and a multiplicative bias. When preferences are weakly ordered (i.e. when indifference is transitive), such a bias equals ...
