  • Ferrer, Alberto; Guimarans, Daniel; Ramalhinho-Lourenço, Helena; Juan, Angel A. (Elsevier, 2016)
    This paper analyzes a realistic variant of the Permutation Flow-Shop Problem (PFSP) by considering a non-smooth objective function that takes into account not only the traditional makespan cost but also failure-risk costs ...
  • Graeve, Martin; Greenacre, Michael (Wiley, 2020)
    Fatty acid (FA) compositions provide insights about storage and feeding modes of marine organisms, characterizing trophic relationships in the marine food web. Such compositional data, which are normalized to sum to 1, ...
  • Kasperskaya, Yuliya; Xifré Oliva, Ramon (Emerald, 2020)
    Purpose The objective of this study is to analyze the role that budgetary analytical capacity (BAC) plays for fiscal discipline in a sample of Eurozone countries in the postcrisis period. Dessign/methodology/approach Building ...
  • Germano, Fabrizio; Weinstein, Jonathan; Zuazo-Garin, Peio (Econometric Society, 2019)
    Predictions under common knowledge of payoffs may differ from those under arbitrarily, but finitely, many orders of mutual knowledge; Rubinstein's (1989)Email game is a seminal example. Weinstein and Yildiz (2007) showed ...
  • Bonfiglioli, Alessandra; Crinò, Rosario; Gancia, Gino A. (Oxford University Press, 2019)
    We study how financial frictions affect firm-level heterogeneity and trade. We build a model in which productivity differences across monopolistically competitive firms are endogenous and depend on investment decisions at ...
  • Bonfiglioli, Alessandra; Gancia, Gino A. (Elsevier, 2019)
    We propose a model in which differences in socioeconomic and labor market outcomes between ex-ante identical countries can be generated as multiple equilibria sustained by different beliefs on the value of effort for finding ...
  • Eslava, Marcela; Freixas, Xavier (Wiley, 2021)
    What should be the role of a public development bank (PDB)? Which projects/firms should the PDB target? What can theory say about the types of loans and ways of delivering them that PDBs around the world use? We analyze ...
  • Nagy, Dávid Krisztián (SpringerOpen, 2021)
    A rapidly growing literature uses quantitative general equilibrium models of economic geography to study the economic impact of historical events such as the railroad revolution, industrial take-off, structural transformation ...
  • Freixas, Xavier; Perez Reyna, David (Elsevier, 2021)
    We provide a microfounded framework for the welfare analysis of macroprudential policy within a model of rational bubbles. For this, we posit an overlapping generation model where productivity and credit supply are subject ...
  • Galí, Jordi, 1961- (American Economic Association, 2021)
    I analyze an extension of the New Keynesian model that features overlapping generations of finitely lived agents and (stochastic) transitions to inactivity. In contrast with the standard model, the proposed framework ...
  • Mayoral, Laura (Springer, 2019)
    This paper contributes to the literature on majority voting over fiscal policies. We depart from the standard model in two dimensions. First, besides redistributing income, the government uses the net tax revenue to finance ...
  • Galí, Jordi, 1961-; Gambetti, Luca (Banco Central de Chile, 2020)
    The deep and prolonged recession triggered by the global financial crisis of 2007–2009 led to a large increase in the unemployment rate in most advanced economies. Ten years later, at the time of writing this paper, the ...
  • Desmet, Klaus; Kopp, Robert E.; Kulp, Scott A.; Nagy, David Krisztián; Oppenheimer, Michael; Rossi-Hansberg, Esteban; Strauss, Benjamin H. (American Economic Association, 2021)
    Sea level rise will cause spatial shifts in economic activity over the next 200 years. Using a spatially disaggregated, dynamic model of the world economy, this paper estimates the consequences of probabilistic projections ...
  • Fabri Lima, Marcelus; Ramalhinho-Lourenço, Helena (Wiley, 2021)
    In this work, we consider the internal logistics processes in the car assembling company SEAT S.A (where SEAT is Sociedad Española de Automóviles de Turismo). We focus on the design of the supplying routes from the warehouse ...
  • Fabri Lima, Marcelus; Ramalhinho-Lourenço, Helena; Oliver Riera, Miquel; Muñoz, Juan Carlos (Taylor & Francis, 2020)
    This work focuses on internal logistics (IL), which is defined as the flows of materials inside the same business or the same plant. We centre on the IL activities of a car-assembling company. The main objective is to ...
  • Hauk, Esther; Lanteri, Andrea; Marcet, Albert (Elsevier, 2021)
    Most available results on optimal decisions under partial information are derived under “separation”. But this principle does not always hold. We derive a non-standard first order condition of optimality from first principles ...
  • Andrade, Philippe; Galí, Jordi, 1961-; Le Bihan, Hervé; Matheron, Julien (Brookings Institution Press, 2019)
    We study how changes in the steady-state real interest rate (henceforth r*) affect the optimal inflation target in a New Keynesian dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model with trend inflation and a lower bound ...
  • Debortoli, Davide; Galí, Jordi, 1961-; Gambetti, Luca (University of Chicago Press, 2019)
    The magnitude of the global financial crisis of 2007–8 and the recession that it triggered ledmany central banks to lower their policy rates down to values near zero, their theoretical lower bound.1 In the United ...
  • Billi, Roberto M.; Galí, Jordi, 1961- (Wiley, 2020)
    We analyse the welfare impact of greater wage flexibility in the presence of an occasionally binding zero lower bound (ZLB) constraint on the nominal interest rate.We show that the ZLB constraint generally amplifies the ...
  • Asriyan, Vladimir; Fornaro, Luca; Martin, Alberto, 1974-; Ventura, Jaume (Oxford University Press, 2020)
    What is the role of monetary policy in a bubbly world? To address this question, we study an economy in which financial frictions limit the supply of assets. The ensuing scarcity generates a demand for “unbacked” assets, ...
