"Revealing stereotypes: Evidence from grading in schools" ABSTRACT If individuals become aware of their own stereotypes, do they change their behavior? We study this question in the context of teachers' bias in grading against immigrants. We first show that teachers give lower grades to immigrant students compared to natives with the same performance in standardized, blindly-graded tests. We then relate differences in grading to teachers' stereotypes, elicited through an Implicit Association Test (IAT). We find that teachers with stronger racial…

"The Long Term Payoffs of Having Privileged Peers. Evidence from Siblings in School" abstract By comparing siblings attending the same school at different points of time, we estimate the effects of schoolmates’ average parental education on lifetime earnings and other medium and long-term outcomes and investigate whether these effects vary with individual parental education. 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…

"Residential mortgage defaults and positive equity: Lessons from Europe" abstract We empirically investigate mortgage default behavior in the European market where mortgages are recourse loans, i.e. borrowers are responsible upon default for the difference between the value of the outstanding debt and the value of the house. 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…

"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,…

"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.…
