  • Bayer, P; Casey, M; Ferreira, F; McMillan, R (2013-03-01)
    This paper uses unique panel data covering over two million repeat-sales housing transactions from four metropolitan areas to test for the presence of racial price differentials in the housing market. Drawing on the strengths ...
  • Anenberg, E; Bayer, P (2014-12-05)
    This paper presents new empirical evidence that internal movement - selling one home and buying another - by existing homeowners within a metropolitan housing market is especially volatile and the main driver of fluctuations ...
  • Bayer, P; Casey, M; Ferreira, F; McMillan, R (2012-05-01)
    This paper sets out a new research design to test for price discrimination by sellers in the housing market. The design controls carefully for unobserved differences in the quality of neighborhoods and homes purchased by ...
  • Anwar, S; Bayer, P; Hjalmarsson, R (2012-02-01)
    This paper uses data from over 700 felony trials in Sarasota and Lake Counties in Florida from 2000-2010 to examine the role of age in jury selection and trial outcomes. The results of the analysis imply that prosecutors ...
  • Belzil, C; Sidibe, M (2016-10-31)
    Using a unique field experiment from Canada, we estimate individual preference over risk and time and show considerable heterogeneity in both dimensions and relatively stable distributions across our various specifications, ...
  • Schmutz, B; Sidibe, M (2016-09-27)
    We study the properties of spatial equilibrium in an economy where locations have heterogeneous endowments and the labour market is subject to matching frictions. Both workers and firms make endogenous location decisions, ...
  • Belzil, C; Maurel, A; Sidibe, M (2016-06-01)
    Using data from a Canadian field experiment designed to elicit risk and time preferences and quantify financial barriers to higher education, we estimate the distribution of the value of financial aid for prospective ...
  • Schmutz, B; Sidibe, M (2016-05-03)
    We build a dynamic model of migration where, in addition to classical mobility costs, workers face informational frictions that decrease their ability to compete for distant job opportunities. We structurally estimate the ...
  • Schmutz, B; Sidibe, M (2016-12-07)
    We build an equilibrium job search model, where workers engage in both off- and on-the-job search over a set of cities, to quantify the impact of spatial matching frictions and mobility costs on the job search process. ...
  • Chahrour, R; Jurado, KE (2016-09-07)
    The macroeconomic literature on belief-driven business cycles treats news and noise as distinct representations of people’s beliefs about economic fundamentals. We prove that these two representations are actually ...
  • Dillenberger, D; Sadowski, P (2012-09-13)
    We study an individual who faces a dynamic decision problem in which the process of information arrival is unobserved by the analyst, and hence should be identified from observed choice data. An information structure is ...
  • Halsmayer, V; Hoover, KD (2013-03-27)
    Modern growth theory derives mostly from Robert Solow’s “A Contribution to the Theory of Economic Growth” (1956). Solow’s own interpretation locates the origins of his “Contribution” in his view that the growth model of ...
  • Bayer, P; Mangum, K; Roberts, JW (2016-02-01)
    Historical anecdotes of new investors being drawn into a booming asset market, only to suffer when the market turns, abound. While the role of investor contagion in asset bubbles has been explored extensively in the ...
  • Reeves, GM; Keeton, C; Correll, CU; Johnson, JL; Hamer, RM; Sikich, L; Hazzard, L; Alderman, C; Scheer, A; Mabe, M; Kapoor, S; Sheridan, E; Borner, I; Bussell, K; Pirmohamed, S; Bethea, TC; Chekuri, R; Gottfried, R; Reinblatt, SP; Santana, E; Riddle, MA (2013-08-15)
    BACKGROUND: Youth with serious mental illness may experience improved psychiatric stability with second generation antipsychotic (SGA) medication treatment, but unfortunately may also experience unhealthy weight gain adverse ...
  • Tauchen, GE; Davies, R (2015-09-17)
    This paper develops a method to select the threshold in threshold-based jump detection methods. The method is motivated by an analysis of threshold-based jump detection methods in the context of jump-diffusion models. We ...
  • Bianchi, F; Kung, H (2014-11-01)
    We construct and estimate a model that features endogenous growth and technology diffusion. The spillover effects from research and development provide a link between business cycle fluctuations and long-term growth. ...
  • Bianchi, F; Civelli, A (2013-07-01)
    Under the Globalization Hypothesis for inflation, as globalization increases, global economic slack should progressively replace the domestic gap in driving inflation. In order to assess the empirical support for this ...
  • Bianchi, F; Melosi, L (2015-01-01)
    High uncertainty is an inherent implication of the zero lower bound, while deflation is not because of inflationary pressure due to uncertainty about how debt will be stabilized. We show that policy uncertainty empirically ...
  • Bianchi, F; Melosi, L (2015-02-01)
    We develop and estimate a general equilibrium model to quantitatively assess the effects and welfare implications of central bank transparency. Monetary policy can deviate from active inflation stabilization and agents ...
  • Wang, Y; Tower, E (2016-10-27)
    In this paper we analyze the performance of China's open-ended mutual funds, using the data of 467 open-ended mutual funds from 60 fund families from January 2010 through April 2015. A paradox emerges. High expense ratios ...
