Seminario 18/13: Karoon Suksonghong (Burapha University) – Modeling the demand for inbound tourism to Thailand: Panel data approach


Abstract This paper models the inbound tourism demand of Thailand by focusing on six major tourism markets, including China, Malaysia, South Korea, Japan, Russia, and India. Several economics variables widely used in the demand modeling literature were adopted. Besides, additional variables pertaining to environmental and security aspect were considered and incorporated into our investigated model….

Seminario 18/12: -Pedro Pintassilgo (UAlg)-International Fisheries Agreements: A Game Theoretical Approach


The management of fish stocks harvested by several countries is an important economic and political issue at the international level. It is estimated that the harvests of these fish stocks account for about one third of world marine harvests. The cooperative management of international shared fish stocks, through International Fisheries Agreements, has proven to be…

Resumen: Este trabajo pretende abordar tres aspectos fundamentales estrechamente relacionados entre sí que resultan claves para entender la situación precaria de los trabajadores en España tras cuarenta años de democracia y que han derivado en graves consecuencias económicas y sociales. El primero se refiere a las reformas laborales impulsadas en España después de la dictadura y…

Seminario 18/11: Jesús Vázquez (U. País Vasco)-The bond term premium in an estimated DSGE model with real-time learning


ABSTRACT: Adaptive learning (AL) takes over other features needed to generate a sizable term premium under rational expectations. Indeed, a time-varying term premium emerges in a first-order approximation of a DSGE model under AL. We estimate a real-time AL model that builds on Slobodyan and Wouters (2012a). Our extension disentangles the expectations hypothesis of the term structure (EH)…

Seminario 18/9: Xesús Pereira (U. Santiago de Compostela)- En la búsqueda de una formulación idónea para los cocientes de localización

Localizacion industrial

En el ámbito de la generación de tablas input-output regionales, se ha visto como la formulación de los cocientes de localización –desde las propuestas incipientes hasta la fórmula aumentada de Flegg– ha sufrido cambios. Ahora bien, las distintas modificaciones presentan cierta sencillez; en donde las tasas de variación del empleo o producción, así como el…

Seminario 18/8: Emilio Cerdá (U. Complutense)-Impacts of Climate Change on Wind Energy Power – Four Wind Farms in Spain

Wind Energy Generation

This paper addresses the long-term impacts of climate change on wind speed and, therefore, on wind energy generation. A projection of wind speed was carried out for four selected wind farms in Spain, using an ensemble of three climate models, two scenarios (RCP 4.5 and 8.5) and two time periods (2018-2041 and 2042-2065) per plant….

up arrow graphic

Abstract: This paper adds the standard input–output linkages into a multi-sector endogenous growth model to study the interaction effects between linkages and technology adoption for aggregate productivity and for income per capita. We show that the greater the intensity with which a good is used as input by other sectors, the smaller are the technology…

Seminario 18/7: CANCELADO HASTA NUEVA ORDEN Juan José Ganuza (UPF and Barcelona GSE) and Fernando Gómez (UPF)- Formal Contracts Without Courts. Scoring Suppliers to Build Trust

Formal contract

CANCELADO POR ENFERMEDAD DEL PONENTE. SE AVISARÁ CUANDO SE FIJE OTRA POSIBLE FECHA. ABSTRACT Relevant empirical findings point at the actual use of explicit (but imperfectly en- forceable) formal contracts by businesses alongside substantial informal dimensions in the relationship. In this paper we formally show the supporting role that formal contracts play for relational interactions. …

Seminario 18/6: -Konstantin Kholodilin (DIW Berlin)- Rental housing policies and the tenure choice: A multi-country dynamic panel data analysis


The homeownership plays an important role in the wealth accumulation, given that the real estate represents over the half of the private households’ wealth. For more than a century, the governments in the market economies have striven to maximize the proportion of households who occupy their own dwellings. The homeowners are thought to be better…

Seminario 18/05: David Jiménez Gómez (U. Alicante)- Evolution of Self-Control in the Brain


ABSTRACT. Temptation and self-control evolved as single mechanism to make humans behave against their own self-interest. I follow a recent literature in Economics on the evolution of preferences, by modeling the evolution of self-control in a principal-agent framework. The principal can obtain the first best asymptotically by biasing the utility of the agent (from which…
