  • Puig, Jaume (1999)
    The goal of this paper is to present an optimal resource allocation model for the regional allocation of public service inputs. The proposed solution leads to maximise the relative public service availability in regions ...
  • Brückner, Markus; Ciccone, Antonio (2008)
    According to the economic approach to political transitions, transitory negative economic shocks can open a window of opportunity for democratic improvement. Testing the theory requires a source of transitory shocks to the ...
  • Ager, Philipp; Ciccone, Antonio (2014)
    Building on the idea that religious communities provide mutual insurance against some idiosyncratic risks, we argue that religious membership is more valuable in societies exposed to greater common risk. In our empirical ...
  • Antonelli, Fabio; Kohatsu, Arturo (1998)
    This paper studies the rate of convergence of an appropriate discretization scheme of the solution of the Mc Kean-Vlasov equation introduced by Bossy and Talay. More specifically, we consider approximations of the ...
  • Greenacre, Michael (2002)
    We compare two methods for visualising contingency tables and develop a method called the ratio map which combines the good properties of both. The first is a biplot based on the logratio approach to compositional ...
  • Grosskopf, Brit; Nagel, Rosemarie (2007)
    Many experiments have shown that human subjects do not necessarily behave in line with game theoretic assumptions and solution concepts. The reasons for this non-conformity are multiple. In this paper we study the argument ...
  • Cassiman, Bruno; Veugelers, Reinhilde (1998)
    This paper provides some first empirical evidence on the relationship between R&D spillovers and R&D cooperation. The results suggest disentangling different aspects of know-how flows. Firms which rate incoming spillovers ...
  • Domínguez, Beatriz; Ganuza, Juan José; Llobet, Gerard (2005)
    It is commonly argued that in recent years pharmaceutical companies have directed their R&D towards small improvements of existing compounds instead of more risky drastic innovations. In this paper we show that the ...
  • Blanchard, Olivier; Galí, Jordi (2005)
    Most central banks perceive a trade-off between stabilizing inflation and stabilizing the gap between output and desired output. However, the standard new Keynesian framework implies no such trade-off. In that framework, ...
  • Requejo, Ferran, 1951-; Sanjaume Calvet, Marc (2013)
    Having lived through a bloody civil war in the 1930s followed by four decades of General Franco’s dictatorship, the Spanish state carried out a transition to a democratic system at the end of the 1970s. The 1978 Constitution ...
  • Campos, J; Almodóvar, A; Pinilla, J; Benavides, FG; en nombre de todos los participantes en el I taller de Encuestas de Condiciones de Trabajo y Salud (Madrid, 4 de diciembre de 2008) (2009)
    El objetivo de estas recomendaciones es ayudar a incrementar la calidad y la eficiencia de las distintas encuestas que sobre condiciones de trabajo y salud se realizan en España, haciendo más comparable la información ...
  • Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Observatorio de Salud Laboral (2005)
    Convocado por el Observatorio de Salud Laboral, se celebró un Taller deexpertos con un doble objetivo: 1) Presentar y debatir el informe “Subsistemascientífico-técnicos de apoyo a las políticas de salud y seguridad en el ...
  • Rodón, Toni (2013)
    Contact theory and threat group theory offer contradictory hypotheses regarding the effect of contact with immigrants. Despite recent efforts to test the validity of both approaches, we still lack a definitive conclusion. ...
  • Garcés-Mascareñas, Blanca (2013)
    By analysing entry policies and regularisation procedures in Spain from the 1990s to 2007, this article examines how the mismatch between very restrictive immigration policies and increasing foreign labour demands translated ...
  • Dagan, Nir (1994)
    We characterize the set of Walrasian allocations of an economy as the set of allocations which can be supported by abstract equilibria that satisfy a recontracting condition which reflects the idea that agents can freely ...
  • Giusti, Giovanni; Noussair, Charles; Voth, Joachim (2013)
    Major bubble episodes are rare events. In this paper, we examine what factors might cause some asset price bubbles to become very large. We recreate, in a laboratory setting, some of the specific institutional features ...
  • Marcet, Albert; Nicolini, Juan P. (1995)
    This paper uses a model of boundedly rational learning to account for the observations of recurrent hyperinflations in the last decade. We study a standard monetary model where the fully rational expectations assumption ...
  • Marcet, Albert; Marimon, Ramon (1994)
    We obtain a recursive formulation for a general class of contracting problems involving incentive constraints. Under these constraints, the corresponding maximization (sup) problems fails to have a recursive solution. Our ...
  • Ciccone, Antonio; Papaioannou, Elias (2006)
    Does cutting red tape foster entrepreneurship in industries with the potential to expand? We address this question by combining the time needed to comply with government entry procedures in 45 countries with industry-level ...
