Dynamic Mechanisms (DYNMECH)

Start date: Jan 1, 2017, End date: Dec 31, 2021,

This project studies dynamic mechanisms. By “dynamic mechanisms”, we mean policies to which a principal (e.g., a seller, an employer, or a regulator) can commit to induce the agents (e.g., buyers, employees, or regulated firms) to take the desired actions over time. Several components of the project are envisaged: - Competition in dynamic mechanisms. o I propose a competitive setting in which a ...

Robust Mechanism Design and Robust Prediction in Games (ROBUST)

Start date: Dec 1, 2016, End date: Nov 30, 2021,

In the last several decades, it has been extensively studied how strategic behavior of economic agents could affect the outcomes of various institutions. Game theory and mechanism design theory play key roles in understanding economic agents' possible behavior in those institutions, its welfare consequences, and how we should design economic institutions to achieve desired social objectives even i ...

Information services: competition and externalities (ISECO)

Start date: Nov 1, 2015, End date: Oct 31, 2020,

This application aims at fostering our knowledge of the economics of information services by studying the strategic interactions between agents involved in the production and exchange of information services. In this context, externalities play a key role explored by this proposal. Their increasing prevalence in information services can be traced to three features: - Many information services invo ...

"Unobserved heterogeneity and endogeneity are prevalent notions throughout econometrics. Most of the literature focuses on scalar unobserved heterogeneity. It implies strong restrictions on the heterogeneity of the behaviour of economic agents. This is the case in a binary treatment effect model where scalar unobserved heterogeneity and additive separability of the index in the selection equation ...

Firm Networks Trade and Growth (FiNet)

Start date: Dec 1, 2013, End date: Nov 30, 2018,

The general theme of this research is to introduce the notion of large-scale economic networks into the mainstream of economics, in particular in macroeconomics and international trade. Economic agents often do not have access to all the relevant information they may need: whom they know, whom they interact with represents a small fraction of all possible interactions. I model this limited set of ...

"The application proposes to revisit the economics of cooperation and competition in industry vertical chains and develop new tools for industrial organization (IO). Modern IO theory treats firms as unitary, profit-maximizing entities, characterized by well-identified perimeters of activity, and clearly identified either as competitors or as complementors. Yet in practice:- Industry structures are ...

A Dynamic Economic and Monetary Union (ADEMU)

Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2018,

In response to the European debt crisis and associated deep recession, a number of important steps have recently been taken towards redesigning the institutional architecture of EMU, based on the roadmap outlined in the Van Rompuy Report (2012). But these institutional innovations – in particular the ‘fiscal compact’, the ESM, the SSM and the SRM – retain relatively weak theoretical foundations. I ...

Trading and post-trading (TAP)

Start date: Jun 1, 2012, End date: May 31, 2017,

"Two of the main functions of financial markets are to discover equilibrium prices, thus providing useful information to the economy, and to enable investors to realize mutually beneficial trades. For markets to serve these goals, it is necessary that i) investors be matched efficiently and trade at prices accurately reflecting relevant information, and that, ii) transactions be executed without c ...

It is aimed to understand the economic consequences of multilateral private information, and to obtain corresponding policy implications. The focus will be on two types of contexts: (i) oligopolistic firms seeking to constitute a collusive agreement, having private information about their costs and/or the quality of their products; (ii) agents trading in an otherwise perfectly competitive environm ...

Cooperation for European Research in Economics (COEURE)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Oct 31, 2016,

The European Union is the world's largest economic entity, yet its ability to design and implement effective economic policies is not commensurate with its size. While the field of economics has seen an impressive growth, the economic research remains fragmented across the Member States. Developing an efficient research area is essential for growth and to the process of European integration. Howev ...

The main objective of this research project is to develop a new framework for the study of the informational frictions that separate investors from sophisticated traders operating in complete markets. I plan to develop a model of “generalized risk-shifting,” in which traders in complete markets can secretly take fair bets with any arbitrary distribution. The goal is to study the interplay of this ...

"Cognition and Decision-Making: Laws, Norms and Contracts" (COGNITION)

Start date: Apr 1, 2010, End date: Mar 31, 2016,

"The application's unifying theme is cognition. Any decision reflects the information that comes to the decision-maker's awareness at the moment of making the decision. In turn, this information is the stochastic outcome of a sequence of more or less conscious choices and of awareness manipulation by third parties. The three parts of this application all are concerned with two factors of limited a ...

RISK MANAGEMENT AFTER THE CRISIS (RMAC)

Start date: Mar 1, 2010, End date: Feb 29, 2016,

The current financial crisis testifies that the sophisticated risk management models used by large financial institutions are inadequate. The main objective of this research project is to analyze the sources of this failure and to develop sound conceptual principles for founding new risk management methods for financial institutions. In spite of the wide use of sophisticated risk management models ...

This proposal seeks to analyze the effects of incomplete dispersed information for macroeconomic dynamics, broadly defined.First, the proposal seeks to develop methods for the analysis of dynamic equilibrium models, in which different participants hold different views of the aggregate conditions. Theoretical and quantitative solution methods will be proposed that can be applied to almost arbitrary ...

"The main objective of this research project is to contribute at bridging the gap between the two main branches of financial theory, namely corporate finance and asset pricing. It is motivated by the conviction that these two aspects of financial activity should and can be analyzed within a unified framework. This research will borrow from these two approaches in order to construct theoretical mod ...
