  • Alternative frequency and time domain versions of fractional Brownian motion 

    Davidson, James; Hashimzade, Nigar (Cambridge University Press, 2008)
    This paper compares models of fractional processes and associated weak convergence results based on moving average representations in the time domain with spectral representations. Both approaches have been applied in the ...
  • Ambiguity and public good provision in large societies 

    Bailey, Ralph W.; Eichberger, Jürgen; Kelsey, David (Blackwell, 2005-12)
    In this paper, we consider the effect of ambiguity on the private provision of public goods. Equilibrium is shown to exist and be unique. We examine how provision of the public good changes as the size of the population ...
  • Ambiguity and social interaction 

    Eichberger, Jürgen; Kelsey, David; Schipper, Burkhard C. (Oxford University Press, 2003-03)
    We present a non-technical account of ambiguity in strategic games and show how it may be applied to economics and social sciences. Optimistic and pessimistic responses to ambiguity are formally modelled. We show that ...
  • Ambiguity in financial markets: herding and contrarian behaviour 

    Ford, J.L.; Kelsey, David; Pang, Wei (Department of Economics, University of Birmingham, 2006-11)
    The paper studies the impact of ambiguity on history-dependant beahviour in the standard microstructure model of financial markets. We show that differences in ambiguity attitudes between market makers and traders can ...
  • Ambiguity in partnerships 

    Kelsey, David; Spanjers, Willy (Blackwell, 2004-07)
    The consequences of ambiguity for partnerships are addressed. Partnerships with symmetric linear production functions are analysed in a Choquet Expected Utility (CEU)-framework. Nash equilibrium in pure strategies is ...
  • Ambiguity, pessimism, and rational religious choice 

    Melkonyan, Tigran; Pingle, Mark (Springer, 2010)
    Using a subclass of the α-maximin expected-utility preference model, in which the decision maker’s degree of ambiguity and degree of pessimism are each parameterized, we present a theory of religious choice in the Pascalian ...
  • Announcement or contribution: the relative efficiency of manipulated Lindahl mechanisms 

    Myles, Gareth D.; Hashimzade, Nigar (Blackwells, 2009)
    The private provision mechanism is individually incentive compatible but inefficient. The Lindahl mechanism is efficient but not incentive compatible. We analyze the outcome of the manipulated Lindahl mechanism. When the ...
  • Arbeitslosengeld II: Arbeitsanreize und Verteilungsgerechtigkeit 

    Koulovatianos, Christos; Schröder, Carsten; Schmidt, Ulrich (Springer, 2008-07)
    In order to analyze work incentives and distributive justice of the German Unemployment Benefit system (Arbeitslosengeld II (ALG II)) it is necessary to quantify the work effort and the value of commodities produced within ...
  • Are the treasures of game theory ambiguous? 

    Eichberger, Jürgen; Kelsey, David (2007-10)
  • Asymmetric first-price auctions with uniform distributions: Analytic solutions to the general case 

    Kaplan, Todd R.; Zamir, Shmuel (Springer, 2012)
    While auction research, including asymmetric auctions, has grown significantly in recent years, there is still little analytical solutions of first-price auctions outside the symmetric case. Even in the uniform case, ...
  • Asymmetric first-price auctions with uniform distributions: analytic solutions to the general case 

    Kaplan, Todd R.; Zamir, Shmuel (SSRN, 2007-12)
    While auction research, including asymmetric auctions, has grown significantly in recent years, there is still little analytical solutions of first-price auctions outside the symmetric case. Even in the uniform case, ...
  • Asymmetry of Shocks and Convergence in Selected Asean Countries: A Dynamic Analysis 

    Cortinhas, Carlos (2006)
    This paper aims to investigate whether structural shocks among ASEAN countries are becoming more symmetrical over time, thus indicating whether this region is becoming better prepared to introduce a common monetary policy. ...
  • Asymptotic methods and functional central limit theorems 

    Davidson, James (Palgrave, 2006)
  • Auctions with private entry costs 

    Kaplan, Todd R.; Sela, Aner (Centre for Economic Policy Research, 2003-10)
    We study auctions where bidders have private information about their entry costs and the seller does not benefit from these entry costs. We consider a symmetric environment where all bidders have the same value for the ...
  • Bandwagon effects in British general elections, 1885-1910 

    Hodgson, Robert; Maloney, John (Springer, 2012)
    Until 1918, British general elections were staggered over a fortnight or more. We use the eight general elections between 1885 and 1910 to investigate whether there was a general bandwagon or underdog effect as the election ...
  • Behind the cube rule: implications of and evidence against a fractal electoral geography 

    Maloney, John; Pearson, Bernard; Pickering, Andrew C. (Pion, 2003)
    In 1909 Parker Smith showed that the ratio of seats won by the two major parties in Britain was close to the cube of the ratio of their votes. Taagepera and Shugart argue, wrongly, that a fractal electoral map implies this. ...
  • The Benefits of a more Strategic Approach to Tax Administration and the Role of Performance Indicators 

    James, Simon; Svetalekth, Thamrongsak; Wright, Brian (University of Exeter, 2007)
    One way of improving the quality of tax administration might be to take a more strategic approach to tax reform as has already been suggested, for example, in the cases of tax simplification, compliance and taxpayers’ ...
  • The benefits of costly voting 

    Chakravarty, Surajeet; Kaplan, Todd R.; Myles, Gareth D. (University of Exeter Business School, 2010-02)
    We present a costly voting model in which each voter has a private valuation for their preferred outcome of a vote. When there is a zero cost to voting, all voters vote and hence all values are counted equally regardless ...
  • Britain's single currency debate of the late 1860s 

    Maloney, John (Routledge, 2006-12)
    Though a Royal Commission had rejected Britain joining the Latin Monetary Union, Robert Lowe, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, said he would recommend membership provided three conditions were satisfied. As these included ...
  • Building the bomb: nuclear proliferation in authoritarian states 

    Challis, Ben (Routledge, 2015-03-13)
    The assumption underlying much of the debate about nuclear proliferation is that future proliferation threats emanate primarily from states outside the democratic community. In this winning essay of the Trench Gascoigne ...
