    We use disaggregated data on Chilean plants, and the Chilean input-output table to examine the impact of agglomeration spillovers on total factor productivity (TFP). In common with previous studies, we find evidence of ...
  • Page, Frank H. Jr.; Monteiro, Paulo K. (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-11-07)
    We model strategic competition in a market with asymmetric information as a noncooperative game in which each firm competes for the business of a buyer of unknown type by offering the buyer a catalog of products and prices. ...
  • Yoon, Young-Ro (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2008-08-25)
    Can valuable information be disclosed intentionally by the informed agent even within a competitive environment? In this article, we bring our interest into the asymmetry in reward and penalty in the payoff structure and ...
  • McCarthy, Ian (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2008-01-24)
    We analyze an equilibrium search model in a duopoly setting with bilateral heterogeneities in production and search costs in which firms can advertise by announcing price and location. We study existence, stability, and ...
  • von Furstenberg, George (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-11-07)
    The International Financial Services (IFS) industry is restructuring internally and by location. This paper outlines the economic forces and analytical methods that may be applied to examine the economic drivers of these ...

    We analyze whether a consumer driven health care plan like the newly established Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) can reduce health care expenditures in the United States and increase the fraction of the population with ...
  • Escanciano, Juan Carlos; Velasco, Carlos (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2008-08-15)
    This article proposes omnibus specification tests of parametric dynamic quantile regression models. Contrary to the existing procedures, we allow for a flexible and general specification framework where a possibly continuum ...
  • Yang, Shu-Chun Susan (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-10-10)
    This note provides a chronology of major tax events that involved changes in federal taxes on individual and corporate income from 1948 to 2006. For each event, the note provides background and policy motivation, major ...
  • Young-Ro, Yoon (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-07-02)
    In this article, we deal with the topic of intentional information spillover using a model in which both informational- and payoff-externalities are present and the timing of agents' actions is endogenous. In this model, ...
  • Yoon, Young-Ro (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-06-19)
    This paper explores the effects of costly information and asymmetry in reward and penalty on an agent's strategic behavior in acquiring and revealing information. Whether information is costly to acquire or not, in order ...
  • Lee, Changmin (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-05-22)
    This paper develops a matching model in the director market with outside options to explain the equilibrium board quality. Based on Hermalin (2005) and Gabaix and Landier (2006), the board of directors has the function of ...
  • Lee, Changmin (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-05-22)
    I analyze directorships held by CEOs who retired during 1989-1993 and during 1998-2002. My results suggest that retired CEOs became more popular on boards. Also, although pre-retirement accounting performance helps explain ...
  • von Furstenberg, George; von Kalckreuth, Ulf (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-01-08)
    Rajan & Zingales (1998) use U.S. Compustat firm data for the 1980s to obtain measures of manufacturing sectors’ Dependence on External Finance (DEF). They take any differences in these measures to be structural/technological ...
  • Ahn, T.K.; Lee, Myungsuk; Ruttan, Lore; Walker, James (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2006-08-28)
    We investigate the role of payoff asymmetry in laboratory prisoner’s dilemma games. Symmetric and Asymmetric games are examined in simultaneous and sequential settings. In the asymmetric/sequential games, we study the ...
  • Arcalean, Calin; Glomm, Gerhard; Schiopu, Ioana (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-01-31)
    We develop a two-region, two sector model with migration and public investment in infrastructure and education. In a numerical example calibrated to Portugal, we find that the structural funds can improve the growth rate ...
  • Glomm, Gerhard; Kawaguchi, Daiji; Sepulveda, Facundo (2007-01-03)
    This paper examines a revenue neutral green tax reform along the lines of the Double Dividend hypothesis. Using a dynamic general equilibrium model calibrated to the US economy, we find that increasing gasoline taxes and ...

    Sterilized foreign exchange market interventions have been suspected of being inefficient by many empirical studies, but they are plagued by endogeneity problems. To solve the problems, this paper identifies a system that ...
  • Faruq, Hasan (2006-11-27)

  • Walker, Todd B. (2006-09-29)
    Accommodating asymmetric information in a dynamic asset pricing model is technically challenging due to the problems associated with higher-order expectations. That is, rational investors are forced into a situation where ...
