51 p, 2.3 MB Improving the risk concept : a revision of Arrow-Pratt theory in the context of controlled dynamic stochastic environments / Protopopescu, Dan ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Unitat de Fonaments de l'Anàlisi Econòmica ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica
In the literature on risk, one generally assume that uncertainty is uniformly distributed over the entire working horizon, when the absolute risk-aversion index is negative and constant. From this perspective, the risk is totally exogenous, and thus independent of endogenous risks. [...]

40 p, 332.0 KB Codes of best practice in competitive markets for managers / Alonso Paulí, Eduard ; Pérez-Castrillo, David ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Unitat de Fonaments de l'Anàlisi Econòmica ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica
We study firms' corporate governance in environments where possibly heterogeneous shareholders compete for possibly heterogeneous managers. A firm, formed by a shareholder and a manager, can sign either an incentive contract or a contract including a Code of Best Practice. [...]

19 p, 161.1 KB Estimation of dynamic latent variable models using simulated nonparametric moments / Creel, Michael (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia i d'Història Econòmica) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Unitat de Fonaments de l'Anàlisi Econòmica ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica
Given a model that can be simulated, conditional moments at a trial parameter value can be calculated with high accuracy by applying kernel smoothing methods to a long simulation. With such conditional moments in hand, standard method of moments techniques can be used to estimate the parameter. [...]

35 p, 259.0 KB Memory in contracts : the experience of the EBRD (1991-2003) / Artige, Lionel (Université de Liège. Department of Economics) ; Nicolini, Rosella (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Unitat de Fonaments de l'Anàlisi Econòmica ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica
The objective of this paper is to identify the role of memory in repeated contracts with moral hazard in financial intermediation. We use the database we have built containing the contracts signed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development EBRD between 1991 and 2003. [...]

28 p, 199.0 KB Inter-group conflict and intra-group punishment in an experimental contest game / Abbink, Klaus ; Brandts, Jordi ; Herrmann, Benedikt ; Orzen, Henrik ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Unitat de Fonaments de l'Anàlisi Econòmica ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica
We study how conflict in a contest game is influenced by rival parties being groups and by group members being able to punish each other. Our main motivation stems from the analysis of socio-political conflict. [...]

56 p, 559.9 KB Business-science research collaboration under moral hazard / Medalho Pereira, Isabel Maria ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Unitat de Fonaments de l'Anàlisi Econòmica ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica
I analyze, in the context of business and science research collaboration, how the characteristics of partnership agreements are the result of an optimal contract between partners. The final outcome depends on the structure governing the partnership, and on the informational problems towards the efforts involved. [...]

46 p, 455.1 KB Incentives for interdisciplinary research / Medalho Pereira, Isabel Maria ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Unitat de Fonaments de l'Anàlisi Econòmica ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica
This paper is a positive analysis of the driving forces in interdisciplinary research. I take the perspective of a research institution that has to decide how to apply its resources among the production of two types of knowledge: specialized or interdisciplinary. [...]

29 p, 596.6 KB Labor productivity in Spain : 1977-2002 / Nicolini, Rosella (Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Unitat de Fonaments de l'Anàlisi Econòmica ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica
This study examines the evolution of labor productivity across Spanish regions during the period from 1977 to 2002. By applying the kernel technique, we estimate the effects of the Transition process on labor productivity and its main sources. [...]

22 p, 180.4 KB The Spread of free-riding behavior in a social network / López Pintado, Dunia ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Unitat de Fonaments de l'Anàlisi Econòmica ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica
We study a model where agents, located in a social network, decide whether to exert effort or not in experimenting with a new technology (or acquiring a new skill, innovating, etc. ). We assume that agents have strong incentives to free ride on their neighbors' effort decisions. [...]

45 p, 294.5 KB A Retail benchmarking approach to eficient two-way access pricing / Jeon, Doh-Shin ; Hurkens, Sjaak ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Unitat de Fonaments de l'Anàlisi Econòmica ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica
We study a retail benchmarking approach to determine access prices for interconnected networks. Instead of considering fixed access charges as in the existing literature, we study access pricing rules that determine the access price that network i pays to network j as a linear function of the marginal costs and the retail prices set by both networks. [...]
