    • A behavioural model of choice in the presence of decision conflict 

      Gerasimou, Georgios (University of St Andrews, 2013-05) - Working or discussion paper
      This paper proposes a model of choice that does not assume completeness of the decision maker’s preferences. The model explains in a natural way, and within a unified framework choice when preference-incomparable options ...
    • BitView : using blockchain technology to validate and diffuse global usage data for academic publications 

      Camillo Lamanna; La Manna, Manfredi M A (Springer Nature, 2018-11-15) - Conference item
      We suggest that blockchain technology could be used to underpin a validated, reliable, and transparent usage metric for research outputs. Previous attempts to create online usage metrics have been unsuccessful largely ...
    • Capital regulation and systemic risk in the insurance sector 

      Gehrig, Thomas; Iannino, Maria Chiara (2018-06-19) - Journal article
      This paper analyses systemic risk in and the effect of capital regulation on the European insurance sector. In particular, the evolution of an exposure measure (SRISK) and a contribution measure (Delta CoVaR) are analyzed ...
    • A characterization of risk-neutral and ambiguity-averse behavior 

      Gerasimou, Georgios (University of St Andrews, 2015-12-09) - Working or discussion paper
      This paper studies a decision maker who chooses monetary bets/investment portfolios under pure uncertainty. Necessary and sufficient conditions on his preferences over these objects are provided for his choice behavior to ...
    • The Chinese Phillips curve – inflation dynamics in the presence of structural change 

      Egan, Paul Gerard; Leddin, Anthony J (2017-05-16) - Journal article
      This paper models inflation dynamics in China from 1987 to 2014 using a Phillips curve framework. The Phillips curve is generally estimated under the assumption of linearity and parameter constancy. The existence of ...
    • Choice, deferral and consistency 

      Costa-Gomes, Miguel; Cueva, Carlos; Gerasimou, Georgios (University of St Andrews, 2014-12-26) - Working or discussion paper
      In this paper we study decision making in situations where the individual's preferences are not assumed to be complete. First, we identify conditions that are necessary and sufficient for choice behavior in general domains ...
    • Choosing on Influence 

      Cuhadaroglu, Tugce (2017-05-26) - Journal article
      Interaction, the act of mutual influence, is an essential part of daily life and economic decisions. This paper presents an individual decision procedure for interacting individuals. According to our model, individuals ...
    • Cost of borrowing shocks and fiscal adjustment 

      de Groot, Oliver; Holm-Hadulla, F.; Leiner-Killinger, N. (2015-12) - Journal article
      Do capital markets impose fiscal discipline? To answer this question, we estimate the fiscal response to a change in the interest rate paid by 14 European governments over four decades in a panel VAR, using sign restrictions ...
    • The cost of political intervention in monetary policy 

      Cobham, David; Papadopoulos, Athanasios; Zis, George (School of Economics and Finance, University of St Andrews., 2001) - Working or discussion paper
      Data from a unique monetary ‘experiment’ conducted in the UK during the period 1994-97 are used to investigate the cost of political intervention in monetary policy. The paper finds that the difference between government ...
    • Dominance solvable games with multiple payoff criteria 

      Gerasimou, Georgios (University of St Andrews, 2014-07-25) - Working or discussion paper
      Two logically distinct and permissive extensions of iterative weak dominance are introduced for games with possibly vector-valued payoffs. The first, iterative partial dominance, builds on an easy-to-check condition but ...
    • Dynamic benchmark targeting 

      Schlag, Karl H.; Zapechelnyuk, Andriy (2017-05-01) - Journal article
      We study decision making in complex discrete-time dynamic environments where Bayesian optimization is intractable. A decision maker is equipped with a finite set of benchmark strategies. She aims to perform similarly to ...
    • Earnout financing in the financial services industry 

      Barbopoulos, Leonidas G.; Molyneux, Phil; Wilson, John O.S. (2016-10) - Journal article
      This paper explores the effects of earnout contracts used in US financial services M&A. We use propensity score matching (PSM) to address selection bias issues with regard to the endogeneity of the decision of financial ...
    • Education, income and happiness : panel evidence for the UK 

      FitzRoy, Felix R.; Nolan, Michael A. (2018-11-14) - Journal article
      Using panel data from the BHPS and its Understanding Society extension, we study life satisfaction (LS) and income over nearly two decades, for samples split by education, and age, to our knowledge for the first time. The ...
    • Endogenous Price Flexibility and Optimal Monetary Policy 

      Sutherland, Alan; Senay, Ozge (Centre for Dynamic Macroeconomic Analysis, 2010) - Working or discussion paper
      Much of the literature on optimal monetary policy uses models in which the degree of nominal price flexibility is exogenous. There are, however, good reasons to suppose that the degree of price flexibility adjusts endogenously ...

      Senay, Ozge; Sutherland, Alan (2014) - Journal article
      Much of the literature on optimal monetary policy uses models in which the degree of nominal price flexibility is exogenous. There are, however, good reasons to suppose that the degree of price flexibility adjusts endogenously ...
    • Examining monetary policy reaction in the People’s Republic of China – a Markov switching policy index approach 

      Egan, Paul Gerard; Leddin, Anthony J. (2016-05-13) - Journal article
      This paper estimates a monetary policy rule for the People’s Republic of China (PRC) using a standard OLS estimation and a Markov switching model. As the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) generally uses a battery of instruments ...
    • Examining monetary policy transmission in the People's Republic of China – structural change models with a Monetary Policy Index 

      Egan, Paul Gerard; Leddin, Anthony J. (2016-03) - Journal article
      This paper estimates augmented versions of the Investment–Saving curve for the People's Republic of China in an attempt to examine the relationship between monetary policy and the real economy. It endeavors to account for ...
    • Fiscal policy multipliers in an RBC model with learning 

      Mitra, Kaushik; Evans, George W.; Honkapohja, Seppo (2019-01) - Journal article
      Using the standard real business cycle model with lump-sum taxes, we analyze the impact of fiscal policy when agents form expectations using adaptive learning rather than rational expectations (RE). The output multipliers ...
    • Free trade versus autarky under asymmetric Cournot oligopoly 

      Amir, Rabah; Jin, Jim Y.; Tröge, Michael (2017-02) - Journal article
      The paper compares free trade with autarky in an asymmetric multi-country world under Cournot competition with constant returns to scale and linear demand. We derive respective conditions under which free trade will hurt ...
    • Growing through subsidies 

      Aloi, Marta; Lasselle, Laurence (School of Economics and Finance, University of St Andrews., 2001) - Working or discussion paper
      We consider an overlapping generation model based on Matsuyama (1999) and show that, whenever actual capital accumulation falls below its balanced growth path, subsidising innovators by taxing consumers has stabilising ...
