Fiscal Consolidation in Heavily Indebted Economies: Concepción González García (UA)

In this paper, I build a general equilibrium model to study the macroeconomic effects of alternative fiscal consolidation strategies when the private sector is heavily indebted. I model fiscal consolidation as a permanent decrease in the targeted debt-to-GDP ratio by means of government spending cuts or tax hikes. I show that in the long run,…

Seminario 20/06: Jose Carlos Rodríguez Alcantud (Universidad de Salamanca): Simple majorities with voice but no vote

Votación_del_Congreso_Nacional_de_Chile_(1826)

Oligarchic majority rules bring the voice but no vote principle into effect. We prove characterizations of the oligarchic majority rules for both fixed and unrestricted societies and a binary agenda. This is a general class of rules that includes  the simple majority rule as well as dictatorships. Suitable sets of axioms identify a subsociety whose members have…

Seminario: Andrea Lluch (CONICET, Argentina; U. Los Andes, Colombia) – The pervasive influence of informal institutions on female board integration into the corporate elite. The case of Argentina from 1901 to 2016

Abstract  Businesswomen have been largely invisible (or visible in the wrong way) and difficult to track in history.   In one of the few historical analyses made about this topic, Heemskerk and Fennema (2014) applied a long-term perspective to study the process of women entry into the Dutch corporate elite.  They traced how and where females slowly gained access to the corporate boards after…

Specialization, generic firms and market competition (2019): Carlo Reggiani (University of Manchester)

The choice of specialization affects firms’ brand perception by consumers and it is of crucial importance for their profitability in competitive markets. We model how firms choose specialization through a spatial non-localized competition framework that naturally allows for markets where not all brands are available. The model predicts the co-existence of generic and specialized firms,…

Seminario 20/05: Justo Puerto, IMUS, Universidad de Sevilla. Generalized Multisource Regression: A framework for locating hyperplanes to fitting sets of points

fig_tesis_laura

In this talk we revisit common problems of Data Science [1, 2]. Specifically, we focus on the problem of locating a given number of hyperplanes minimizing a globalizing function of the closest distances from a set of points. Following an initial attempt in [3], we propose a general framework for the problem in which general…
