  • The marginal cost of public funds in growing economies 

    Hashimzade, Nigar; Myles, Gareth D. (Association pour le développement de la recherché en économie et en statistique, 2014-06)
    The marginal cost of public funds (MCF) measures the cost to the economy of raising government revenue. The MCF can be used to guide reform of the tax system and to determine an efficient level of government expenditure. ...
  • Market Design and the Stability of General Equilibrium 

    Goeree, JK; Lindsay, L (Elsevier, 2016)
    We employ laboratory methods to study the stability of competitive equilibrium in Scarf’s economy (International Economic Review, 1960). Tatonnement theory predicts that prices are globally unstable for this economy, i.e. ...
  • Market distortions and corporate governance 

    Kelsey, David; Milne, Frank (SSRN, 2005-02)
  • Market Power and Cost Efficiencies in Banking 

    Kumar, P (Elsevier, 2018-02-16)
    Existing studies that quantify cost efficiencies in the banking industry do not account for local market power. If market power is ignored and increases with size, it gets counted as additional cost efficiencies which leads ...
  • Measurement of production efficiency and environmental efficiency in China’s province-level: a by-production approach 

    Zhao, Zuoxiang (Springer Verlag for Society for Environmental Economics and Policy Studies, 2016-08-04)
    The nonconventional by-production approach with respect to the freely disposable inputs but without the weakly disposable and null-joint outputs has been proposed to describe the pollution generating technologies since ...
  • Measuring the measurement error: A method to qualitatively validate survey data 

    Blattman, C; Jamison, J; Koroknay-Palicz, T; Rodrigues, K; Sheridan, M (Elsevier, 2016-01-29)
    Empirical social science relies heavily on self-reported data, but subjects may misreport behaviors, especially sensitive ones such as crime or drug abuse. If a treatment influences survey misreporting, it biases causal ...
  • Metaphysical Realism and Objectivity: Some Theoretical Reflections 

    Ianulardo, G; Stella, A (Springer Verlag, 2018-03-02)
    In this paper we aim to show an intrinsic contradiction of contemporary Metaphysical Realism by focusing on the relation between the subject and the object. Metaphysical Realism considers facts and objects as being empirical, ...
  • (Mis)perceptions of inequality 

    Hauser, OP; Norton, MI (Elsevier, 2017-07-24)
    Laypeople's beliefs about the current distribution of outcomes such as income and wealth in their country influence their attitudes toward issues ranging from taxation to healthcare — but how accurate are these beliefs? ...
  • A model of fractional cointegration, and tests for cointegration using the bootstrap 

    Davidson, James (Elsevier, 2002)
    The paper proposes a framework for modelling cointegration in fractionally integrated processes, and considers methods for testing the existence of cointegrating relationships using the parametric bootstrap. In these ...
  • Moment and memory properties of linear conditional heteroscedasticity models, and a new model 

    Davidson, James (American Statistical Association, 2004)
    This article analyses the statistical properties of that general class of conditional heteroscedasticity models in which the conditional variance is a linear function of squared lags of the process. GARCH, IGARCH, FIGARCH, ...
  • Monetary policy and trade globalization 

    Cooke, Dudley (University of Exeter Business School, 2012)
    This paper develops a two-country Dynamic General Equilibrium model to assess the relationship between the real exchange rate and the extensive margin of exports. Exchange rate pass-through to consumer prices governs the ...
  • ‘Multiculturality’ as a Key Methodological Challenge during In-depth Interviewing in International Business Research’ 

    Zhang, LE; Guttormsen, David S.A. (Emerald, 2016)
    Purpose: Although qualitative methods have now gained a stronger foothold in International Business (IB) research, they remain under-researched, especially regarding how researchers can overcome obstacles created when ...
  • Multiple taxes and alternative forms of FDI: evidence from cross-border acquisitions 

    Herger, Nils; Kotsogiannis, Christos; McCorriston, Steve (Springer, 2015-03-18)
    This paper explores the role of tax instruments in affecting foreign direct investment (FDI), paying particular attention on their effect on two forms of FDI strategy, ‘horizontal’ and ‘vertical’. Applying a decomposition ...
  • Neutral optima in informed principal problems with common values 

    Balkenborg, Dieter; Makris, Miltiadis (University of Exeter Economics Department Discussion Papers Series 09/02, 2009)
    In a class of informed principal problems with common values often used in applications we define a particular mechanism which we call the assured allocation. It is always undominated, i.e. efficient among the different ...
  • A new Keynesian model with overtime labor 

    Madeira, João (University of Exeter, 2008-10)
    This paper extends the standard New Keynesian model by incorporating labor adjustment costs and overtime work. I show that labor frictions help reconcile the frequent price changes found in the microdata with the degree ...
  • The New Zealand Definition of “Residence” for Individuals: Lessons for Australia in a “Global” Environment 

    Alley, Clinton; Bentley, Duncan; James, Simon (Monash University, 2001)
  • Non-state actors in world politics and international relations research: an introduction 

    Guttormsen, David S.A.; van de Wetering, Carina (University of Manchester, 2013)
    In this edition of Political Perspectives, the four articles examine a broad range of perspectives concerning the role of policy institutions, networks and researchers in world politics and foreign policy. The overarching ...
  • Nonmarket household time and the cost of children 

    Koulovatianos, Christos; Schröder, Carsten; Schmidt, Ulrich (American Statistical Association, 2009-01)
    A distinguishing feature among households is whether adult members work or not, since the occupational status of adults affects their available time for home activities. Using a survey method in two countries, Belgium and ...
  • A note on revenue effects of asymmetry in private-value auctions 

    Kaplan, Todd R.; Zamir, Shmuel (SSRN, 2002-02)
    We formulate a way to study whether the asymmetry of buyers (in the sense of having different prior probability distributions of valuations) is helpful to the seller in private-value auctions (asked first by Cantillon ...
  • On modelling pollution-generating technologies 

    Murty, Sushama; Russell, R. Robert; Levkoff, Steven B. (Elsevier, 2012-07)
    We argue analytically that many commonly used models of pollution-generating technologies, which treat pollution as a freely disposable input or as a weakly disposable and null-joint output, may generate unacceptable ...
