23 p, 255.4 KB On the weights of nations : assigning voting weights in a heterogeneous union / Barberà, Salvador, 1946- (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) ; Jackson, Matthew O. (California Institute of Technology)
We study indirect democracy in which countries, states, or districts each elect a representative who later votes at a union level on their behalf. We show that the voting rule that maximizes the total expected utility of all agents in the union involves assigning a weight to each district's vote and then sticking with the status quo unless at least a threshold of weighted votes is cast for change.

34 p, 226.8 KB La Crema : a case study of mutual fire insurance / Cabrales, Antonio 1964- (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) ; Calvó Armengol, Antoni (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) ; Jackson, Matthew O. (California Institute of Technology)
We analyze a mutual fire insurance mechanism used in Andorra, which is called La Crema in the local language. This mechanism relies on households' announced property values to determine how much a household is reimbursed in the case of a fire and how payments are apportioned among other households. [...]
honestly report the true value of their property. However, such honest reporting is not an equilibrium except in the extreme case in which the property values are identical for all households. Nevertheless, as the size of the society becomes large, the benefits from deviating from truthful reporting vanish, and all the nondegenerate equilibria of the mechanism are nearly truthful and approximately Pareto efficient.

33 p, 644.6 KB Monopolistic competition and different wage setting systems / Sorolla, Valeri (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia i d'Història Econòmica) ; García, José Ramón (Universitat de València)
In this paper, we present a disequilibrium unemployment model without labor market frictions and monopolistic competition in the goods market within an infinite horizon model of growth. We consider different wage setting systems and compare wages, the unemployment rate, and income per capita in the long-run at firm, sector, and national (centralized) levels. [...]

We study how a third-party payer decides what providers to contract with. Two mechanisms are studied and their properties compared. A first mechanism consists of the so-called "any willing provider" where the third-party payer announces a contract and every provider freely decides to sign it or not. [...]
