  • Bird, Daniel; Frug, Alexander (Wiley, 2022)
    We develop a framework for deriving dynamic monotonicity results in long-term stochastic contracting problems with symmetric information. Specifically, we construct a notion of concave separable activity that encompasses ...
  • Epure, Mircea (Springer, 2022)
    This study proposes a production framework in which capital, labor, and corporate social responsibility (CSR) generate sales. Estimating a stochastic frontier on an international sample of large manufacturing firms reveals ...
  • Billi, Roberto; Galí, Jordi, 1961-; Nakov, Anton (Elsevier, 2024)
    We study the optimal monetary policy problem in a New Keynesian economy with a zero lower bound (ZLB) on the nominal interest rate, when the steady state natural rate (r*) becomes permanently negative. We show that the ...
  • Garcia-Pérez, José Ignacio; Serrano-Alarcón, Manuel; Vall-Castelló, Judit (Springer, 2024)
    This paper examines the labour market and health effects of a non-contributory long-term unemployment (LTU) benefit targeted at middle-aged disadvantaged workers. To do so, we exploit a Spanish reform introduced in July ...
  • Badell, Daniel; De Armas, Jésica; Julià, Albert (MDPI, 2022)
    An aging population and rising life expectancy lead to an increased demand for social services to care for dependent users, among other factors. In Barcelona, home social care (HSC) services are a key agent in meeting this ...
  • Huber, Christoph; Cornelissen, Gert; Holzmeister, Felix (2023)
    Does competition affect moral behavior? This fundamental question has been debated among leading scholars for centuries, and more recently, it has been tested in experimental studies yielding a body of rather inconclusive ...
  • Cappello, Lorenzo; Palacios, Julia A. (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2020)
    Statistical inference of evolutionary parameters from molecular sequence data relies on coalescent models to account for the shared genealogical ancestry of the samples. However, inferential algorithms do not scale to ...
  • Cappello, Lorenzo; Palacios, Julia A. (Taylor & Francis, 2022)
    Longitudinal molecular data of rapidly evolving viruses and pathogens provide information about disease spread and complement traditional surveillance approaches based on case count data. The coalescent is used to model ...
  • Cappello, Lorenzo; Kim, Jaehee; Liu, Sifan; Palacios, Julia A. (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2022)
    Genomic surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 has been instrumental in tracking the spread and evolution of the virus during the pandemic. The availability of SARS-CoV-2 molecular sequences isolated from infected individuals, coupled ...
  • Ioannidis, Alexander G.; Cappello, Lorenzo; Ashley, Euan A. (Nature Research, 2022)
    The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has differentially impacted populations across race and ethnicity. A multi-omic approach represents a powerful tool to examine risk across multi-ancestry genomes. We leverage a pandemic tracking ...
  • Barnichon, Régis; Brownlees, Christian, 1979- (MIT Press, 2019)
    Local projections (LP) is a popular methodology for the estimation of impulse responses (IR). Compared to the traditional VAR approach, LP allow for more flexible IR estimation by imposing weaker assumptions on the dynamics ...
  • Banal Estañol, Albert; Jofre-Bonet, Mireia; Iori, Giulia; Maynou, Laia; Tumminello, Michele; Vassallo, Pietro (Elsevier, 2023)
    A performance-based research funding system (PRFS) is a nationwide incentive scheme that promotes and rewards university research performance through competition for government funding. The UK’s PRFS, currently the Research ...
  • Groeger, Andre; León-Ciliotta, Gianmarco; Stillman, Steven (Elsevier, 2024)
    Venezuela is currently experiencing the biggest crisis in its recent history. This has led more than 7.3 million Venezuelans to emigrate, at least 1.5 million of those to Peru, which amounted to an increase of over 4 percent ...
  • Evans, Richard; Gil-Bazo, Javier; Lipson, Marc (Wiley, 2024)
    We explore the relation between fund performance and the assets managed by the fund's managers that are outside the fund. Controlling for fund size, we find a negative relation between performance and the size of fund ...
  • Amat Salas, Oriol; Zanotti, Claudio (Asociación Catalana de Contabilidad y Dirección (ACCID), 2018)
    Este artículo trata de la dimensión contable y financiera del Buen Gobierno Corporativo. Para ello, se describen retos que afectan a áreas tales como el control interno, la contabilidad e información financiera (calidad ...
  • Usuari de càrrega (Elsevier, 2023)
    Choosing the right company name is challenging and may have major consequences for firm prospects. Drawing on the strategic conformity literature, we investigate the implications of “nonconforming” company names, i.e. ...
  • Callegari, Giovanni; Marimon, Ramon; Wicht, Adrien; Zavalloni, Luca (Elsevier, 2023)
    We explore the complementarity between a central bank and a financial stability Fund in stabilizing sovereign debt markets. The central bank pursuing its mandate can intervene with public sector purchasing programs, buying ...
  • Righi, Cesare; Simcoe, Timothy (Wiley, 2023)
    Continuations allow inventors to add new claims to old patents, leading to concerns about unintended infringement and holdup. We study how continuations are used in standard essential patent (SEP) prosecution. Difference ...
  • Santini, Alberto; Malaguti, Enrico (Elsevier, 2023)
    In the min-Knapsack problem, one is given a set of items, each having a certain cost and weight. The objective is to select a subset with minimum cost, such that the sum of the weights is not smaller than a given constant. ...
  • Wang, Xinghua; Navarro-Martinez, Daniel (Elsevier, 2023)
    An increasing number of studies call into question the external validity of social preference games. In this paper, we show that these games have a low correlation with single pro-social behaviors in the field, but this ...
