  • 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. ...
  • Wooders, Myrna H.; Page, Frank H. Jr. (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2009-02-24)
    Modeling club structures as bipartite directed networks, we formulate the problem of club formation as a noncooperative game of network formation and identify conditions on network formation rules and players' network ...
  • Young-Ro, Yoon (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-07-30)
    In a model, two players, heterogeneous in their information quality, compete with each other with perfect information about the other player's information quality. If they can decide their timings of actions endogenously, ...
  • 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 ...

    One of the implications of the creation of Basel Committee on Banking Supervision was the implementation of Value-at-Risk (VaR) as the standard tool for measuring market risk. Thereby the correct specification of parametric ...

  • Tran, Chung; Jung, Juergen (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2007-11-13)
    We investigate the effects of extending the coverage of social security to uncovered elderly individuals in the informal sector in developing countries. We use a stochastic overlapping generations framework and incorporate ...
  • Leeper, Eric M.; Walker, Todd B.; Yang, Shu-Chun Susan (Center for Applied Economics and Policy Research, 2008-05-12)
    Fiscal foresight---the phenomenon that legislative and implementation lags ensure that private agents receive clear signals about the tax rates they face in the future---is intrinsic to the tax policy process. This paper ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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. ...

    This article proposes a general class of joint and marginal diagnostic tests for parametric conditional mean and variance models of possibly nonlinear non-Markovian time series sequences. The use of joint and marginal tests ...
