48 p, 1.3 MB How do road infrastructure investments affect the regional economy? Evidence from Spain / Ruiz Marín, Adriana Karina (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada) ; Matas i Prat, Anna (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada) ; Raymond Bara, José Luis (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia i d'Història Econòmica) ; Xarxa de Referència en Economia Aplicada (XREAP)
This paper analyses the relationship between road infrastructure improvements and investment in capital assets. Using aggregate data at a provincial level for 1977-2008, an equation for machinery and equipment investment is estimated applying Panel Corrected Standard Errors. [...]

42 p, 400.1 KB Financial constraints and the failure of innovation projects / García-Quevedo, Jose ; Segarra, Agustí ; Teruel, Mercedes ; Xarxa de Referència en Economia Aplicada (XREAP)
Theoretical and empirical approaches have stressed the existence of financial constraints in firms’ innovative activities. Although a large number of innovation projects are abandoned before their completion, the empirical evidence has focused on the determinants of innovation while failed projects have received little attention. [...]

42 p, 3.1 MB Next train to the polycentric city : The effect of railroads on subcenter formation / García López, Miquel-Àngel (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada) ; Hémet, Camille (Institut d'Economia de Barcelona) ; Viladecans Marsal, Elisabet (Universitat de Barcelona) ; 1968-2010 ; Xarxa de Referència en Economia Aplicada (XREAP)
Recent evidence reveals that transportation’s improvements within metropolitan areas have a clear effect on population and job decentralization processes. Yet, very little has been said on how these improvements affect the spatial organization of the economic activity in the suburbs. [...]

55 p, 1.9 MB Local labor market effects of public employment / Jofre Monseny, Jordi ; Silva Becerra, José Ignacio ; Vázquez Grenno, Javier ; Xarxa de Referència en Economia Aplicada (XREAP)
This paper quantifies the impact of public employment on local labor markets in the long-run. We adopt two quantitative approaches and apply them to the case of Spanish cities. In the first, we develop a 3-sector (public, tradable and non-tradable) search and matching model embedded within a spatial equilibrium model. [...]

45 p, 412.1 KB When one door closes : the impact of the hagwon curfew on the consumption of private tutoring in the Republic of Korea / Choi, Hoon ; Choi Mendizábal, Álvaro B. (Álvaro Borja) ; Xarxa de Referència en Economia Aplicada (XREAP)
The Korean government has struggled against the proliferation of private tutoring for more than four decades. In 2006, state education authorities imposed a restriction on operating hours of hagwon (private tutoring academies or cram schools) in an attempt at reducing the economic and time resources spent on private tutoring. [...]

71 p, 1.1 MB Your language or mine? / Caminal, Ramon (Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica) ; Di Paolo, Antonio (Universitat de Barcelona) ; Xarxa de Referència en Economia Aplicada (XREAP)
Do languages matter beyond their communicative beneÖts? We explore the potential role of preferences over the language of use, theoretically and empirically. We focus on Catalonia, a bilingual society where everyone is fully proÖcient in Spanish, to isolate linguistic preferences from communicative beneÖts. [...]

52 p, 565.1 KB Growing through trade : the role of foreign growth and domestic tariffs / Álvarez-Albelo, Carmen D. (Universidad de La Laguna) ; Manresa, Antonio, 1954- (Universitat de Barcelona) ; Pigem i Vigo, Mònica (Universitat de Barcelona) ; Xarxa de Referència en Economia Aplicada (XREAP)
This paper studies the role of trading partner’ growth and a domestic import tariff in the possibility of growing through trade. To this purpose, a Ricardian model is developed in which a backward economy seeks to increase its long-run growth rate simply by trading with a faster growing partner. [...]

57 p, 471.4 KB Bilingual schooling and earnings : evidence from a language-in-education reform / Cappellari, Lorenzo (Università Cattolica Milano) ; Di Paolo, Antonio (Universitat de Barcelona) ; Xarxa de Referència en Economia Aplicada (XREAP)
We exploit the 1983 language-in-education reform that introduced Catalan alongside Spanish as medium of instruction in Catalan schools to estimate the labour market value of bilingual education. Identification is achieved in a difference-in-differences framework exploiting variation in exposure to the reform across years of schooling and years of birth. [...]

36 p, 220.8 KB Estimating extreme value cumulative distribution functions using bias-corrected kernel approaches / Bolancé, Catalina (Universitat de Barcelona. Departament d'Econometria) ; Bahraoui, Zuhair (Universitat de Barcelona. Departament d'Econometria) ; Alemany Leira, Ramon (Universitat de Barcelona. Departament d'Econometria) ; Xarxa de Referència en Economia Aplicada (XREAP)
We propose a new kernel estimation of the cumulative distribution function based on transformation and on bias reducing techniques. We derive the optimal bandwidth that minimises the asymptotic integrated mean squared error. [...]
