Seminario 17/19: Matilde Lafuente (U. Mucia)- La dimensión trabajo en el contexto de la Exclusión Social en España

exclusion3

En el análisis de la exclusión social, se ha constatado la importancia de la dimensión trabajo. La persistencia del paro, la temporalidad en el empleo o los bajos salarios, inciden de forma importante sobre los niveles de pobreza y exclusión social. En este trabajo se ha recopilado información sobre distintas variables relacionadas con el mercado…

Seminario: -Mª Pilar Martínez García (U. Murcia)- Tourism, environment and growth in an economy with pollution abatement activities

Abstract: In this paper a dynamic model of economic growth, tourism and environment is studied. The model considers tourists in the economy as optimizing agents, interacting with domestic consumers. The number of tourists arriving in the country follows the Tourism Are Life-cycle model with a tourism carrying capacity dependent on environmental quality. Tourism hurts environment and abatement activities have…

Seminario 17/18: M.M. Sánchez de la Vega (U. Murcia) – Estimation of Gross Value Added, Spatial Dependence and Panel Data: Evidence in Municipalities of Region of Murcia Case

municipios3

The aim of this work is to propose a statistical methodology in order to estimate the macromagnitud Gross Value Added per capita (GVApc) in the local geographical area. The procedure proposed consists of estimating a panel model which includes Griffith’s spatial filtering (1996, 2000) to capture the spatial dependence in the whole analyzed period. The…

Seminario 17/17: Guoyin Li (U. New South Wales) – Some Recent Advances in Polynomial Optimization

OPTIMIZACION

Optimization problems involving polynomial functions are of great importance in applied mathematics and engineering, and they are intrinsically hard problems. They arise in important engineering applications such as the sensor network localization problem, and provide a rich and fruitful interaction between algebraic-geometric concepts and modern convex programming. In this talk, we will discuss some recent…

Seminario 17/16: Gloria Fiestras Janeiro (U. Vigo) – Valores para juegos TU como funciones de particiones: una revisión

game_theory

Abstract Los juegos TU como funciones de particiones son estructuras apropiadas para modelizar las ganancias/costes de una coalición teniendo en cuenta como se organizan el resto de los jugadores. En esta charla revisaremos algunos valores propuestos en la literatura, centrándonos en sus propiedades. En particular, revisaremos el valor de Myerson (Myerson 1977), el valor de…

Seminario 17/15: Magdalena Kapelko (Wroclaw University of Economics) – Measuring Productivity Change Accounting for Adjustment Costs: Evidence from the Food Industry in the European Union

productivity

Abstract This paper extends the measurement of dynamic productivity change over time to provide its full decomposition into economically meaningful components in the Data Envelopment Analysis framework. The dynamic approach accounts for dynamics of production decisions via adjustment costs and is visualized as a dynamic Luenberger productivity change indicator. The paper also estimates the dynamic…

Seminario 17/14: German López (UCAM) – Macroeconomic Instability and Unconventional Monetary Policy

Monetary-Policy

Abstract This paper studies the evolution of the monetary policy transmission mechanisms in the US after the financial crisis and the extraordinary monetary stimulus applied since 2008. The implementation of a modified Dynamic Factor Model allows the identification of two different structural scenarios based on the information contained in a large dataset of 110 variables….

Seminario 17/15: Small-scale fisheries in Brazil: a not-so-invisible problem

Brazil is proportionally a relatively unimportant player in the world fisheries scenario. However, small-scale fisheries (SSF) specifically are crucial for local livelihoods and the food security of millions of people, both on the coast and inland. Such fisheries provide more than 50% of the total Brazilian catches, suggesting that they can be highly impacting on…

Seminario 17/13: Miguel González Maestre (U. Murcia) – Populist Traps under Democratic Competition Policy

competitions

Abstract In a two-sector economy, we consider the endogenous determination of the level of competition in the imperfectly competitive sector, under democratic, non-manipulated voting. In the context of the Salop’s (1979) circular model, we identify conditions such that besides a competitive equilibrium (with most voters choosing the efficient level of transport cost), a “populist” equilibrium…

Seminario 17/12: Seven Agir (METU, Ankara) – Corporate Law and Business Enterprise in Turkey, 1923-1950

susana-2

Abstract What are the implications of legal rules for growth and business expansion? This question has been at the center of the rich literature that explores the link between legal institutions and economic performance. While the scholarship has provided insights on the differential experience of countries which developed their own legal systems and those that…
