"Price Discovery in a Large Auction with Costly Information" Abstract: We study a common-value auction in which a large number of identical, indivisible object are sold to a large number of ex-ante identical bidders with unit demand. There is costly information acquisition or costly entry. We derive the limit price distribution. This allows us to quantify the information content of price and provide necessary and sufficient conditions for information aggregation.

"Actors in the Child Development Process" Abstract: We construct and estimate a model of child development in which both the parents and children make investments in the child’s skill development. In each period of the development process, partially altruistic parents act as the Stack- elberg leader and the child the follower when setting her own study time. We then extend this non-cooperative form of interaction by allowing parents to of- fer incentives to the child to increase her study time,…

"Sequential Persuasion" Abstract This paper studies sequential move persuasion games with multiple senders. We use convex analysis to transform a problem with innite action spaces to a nite action model. This way we prove the existence of equilibria by the Zermelo-Kuhn backward induction algorithm, show that equilibrium outcomes are generically unique, and obtain a simple algorithm for nding equilibrium outcomes. We also obtain a simple condition for when full revelation is the unique equilibrium outcome and some comparative statics results.…

"Does Bankruptcy Risk Increase Value?" Abstract We show that bankruptcy exposure increases ex-post average firm value due to a survivorship bias. The reason is that bankruptcy cancels rms with the lowest realized cash ows from databases. Such bias gives rise to known pricing puzzles. It generates a discount on diversified companies when diversification helps their survival. Moreover, it distorts inference on firm efficiency, turning a diversification premium, due to lower expected bankruptcy costs, into a discount. This insight finds support in both the excess survival…

"The "Activation" Funnel: Mother's Involvement in Anti-Poverty Intervention in the Era of Social Investment" Abstract How anti-poverty interventions are involving mothers ? Recent redefinition of policies and programs in the social sector has been concomitant with a reconfiguration of responsibilities and responses to poverty from the state, the private sector, community organizations, families and individuals. Therefore, researchers have observed an increase of burden into two levels, namely community organizations, on the one hand, and families, in which women continue to…

"Open or Close the Door? Prison Conditions and Recidivism" Abstract The question of how prison conditions affect recidivism is very important. In designing a prison system, one would want to know the answer. We estimate the effect on recidivism of replacing time served in a common closed-cell prison with time served in an open-cell one, mimicking an experiment where the time spent in the two prison regimes is randomly assigned. We deal with the endogenous assignment of inmates to different prison regimes using variation…

"Academics’ motives, opportunity costs and commercial activities across fields" at Department of Economics and Statistics S. Cognetti de Martiis Abstract Scholarly work seeking to understand academics’ commercial activities often draws on abstract notions of the institution of science and of the representative scientist. Few scholars have examined whether and how scientists’ motives to engage in commercial activities differ across fields. Similarly, efforts to understand academics’ choices have focused on three self-interested motives – recognition, challenge, and money – ignoring the potential role of…

The study is based on high-frequency, comprehensive and updated information on employment and wages derived from administrative data on private-sector social security contributions, matched with precise information on the economic content of national industry-wide agreements bargained by trade unions' and employers' representatives. Results show an overall negative effect of the growth in contractual wages on several measures…

How the Reification of Merit Breeds Inequality: Theory and Experimental Evidence Abstract: In a variety of social contexts, measuring merit and performance are crucial steps toward enforcing meritocratic ideals. At the same time, workable measures are bound to obfuscate the fuzziness and ambiguity of merit, i.e. to reify performance into an artificially crisp and clear-cut thing, such as a rating for example. This paper explores how the reification of employee performance in organizations contributes to legitimize inequality in employee compensation.…

"Do Foreign Investors Improve Market Efficiency?" Abstract We study the impact of foreign institutional investors on global capital allocation and welfare using firm-level international data. Using MSCI index inclusion as an exogenous shock to foreign ownership, we show that greater foreign ownership leads to more informative stock prices and this effect arises more from increased price efficiency than from improved firm governance. We further show that the impact of capital flows on price efficiency is due to real efficiency gains,…

Yet little is known about what happens to patents “released” to the market when startups fail. This study provides a first look at the frequency and speed with which patents originating from failed startups are redeployed to new owners, and whether the value of patents is tied to the original venture and team. The evidence is based on 1,766 U.S. patents issued…

"A General Theory of Subjective Mixtures" Abstract We provide a framework for constructing subjective mixtures which requires neither the Certainty Independence nor the Monotonicity axiom, replacing them with much weaker "local'' properties, and which --as we show by means of several examples-- can thus serve as a purely subjective foundation to most of the recent preference models which employ an Anscombe-Aumann setting. The scope of our framework is further demonstrated by providing a fully subjective axiomatization of Recursive Variational Preferences,…

This column argues that this disconnect has led many of these ‘places that don’t matter’ to revolt in a wave of political populism with strong territorial, rather than social, foundations. Better territorial development policies are needed that tap potential and provide opportunities to those…

We show that the majority of defaults happen when collateral would be in principle enough to repay the debt. We find that equity at default is significantly negatively related with the households income…

"Dynamic Campaign Spending" Abstract We build a model of electoral campaigning in which two candidates allocate money over time to control the movement of relative popularity. If any gain in a candidate's popularity tends to decay over time (making it harder for the candidate to maintain or increase her lead when she is already ahead) then the candidates increase their spending over time ahead of the election. Relative popularity follows a modified Brownian motion whose long-run mean depends only on…

We find that exposure to privileged peers increases lifetime earnings and the probability of completing tertiary education. These effects are mainly concentrated among “disadvantaged” students. Lifetime…
