  • Murray, James (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2008-06-13)
    This paper examines how the estimation results for a standard New Keynesian model with constant gain least squares learning is sensitive to the stance taken on agents beliefs at the beginning of the sample. The New Keynesian ...
  • McCarthy, Ian; Tchernis, Rusty (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2008-04-03)
    There is increasing evidence suggesting that Medicare beneficiaries do not make fully informed decisions when choosing among alternative Medicare health plans. To the extent that deciphering the intricacies of alternative ...
  • Lopez, Ricardo; Suedekum, Jens (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-09-11)
    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. ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Park, Seok Gil (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-02-21)
    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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Fertig, Angela; Glomm, Gerhard; Tchernis, Rusty (2006-12-18)
    This paper investigates the channels through which maternal employment affects childhood obesity. We use time diaries and interview responses from the Child Development Supplement of the Panel Study of Income Dynamics which ...
  • Chamarbagwala, Rubiana; Tchernis, Rusty (2006-10-23)
    This paper aims to summarize the unexplained propensity of children to engage in work, school, or neither. After controlling for a wide range of determinants of child labor, schooling, and idleness, we estimate a hierarchical ...
  • Alvarez, Roberto; Lopez, Ricardo (2006-10-23)
    Several studies examine the patterns and determinants of entry and exit in manufacturing industries. Not much work exists on entry and exit in international markets. This paper uses Chilean data to analyze the determinants ...
  • Alvarez, Roberto; Lopez, Ricardo (2006-10-23)
    This paper investigates whether exporting generates positive productivity spillover effects on other plants operating in the same industry and whether exporting affects productivity of plants in vertically related industries. ...
  • Millimet, Daniel; Tchernis, Rusty (2006-10-17)
    The use of propensity score methods for program evaluation with non-experimental data typically requires the propensity score be estimated, often with a model whose specification is unknown. While theoretical results ...
  • Kasa, Kenneth; Walker, Todd B.; Whiteman, Charles H. (2006-10-13)
    This paper develops a dynamic asset pricing model with persistent heterogeneous beliefs. The model features competitive traders who receive idiosyncratic signals about an underlying fundamentals process. We adapt Futia’s ...
