      A Marginalist Model of Network Formation 

      Olaizola Ortega, María Norma; Valenciano Llovera, Federico (Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, UPV/EHU, 2016-08-18)
      We develop a network-formation model where the quality of a link depends on the amount invested in it and is determined by a link-formation "technology" , an increasing strictly concave function which is the only exogenous ...

      A Unifying model of strategic network formation 

      Olaizola Ortega, María Norma; Valenciano Llovera, Federico (Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, UPV/EHU, 2015-02-17)
      We provide a model that merges two basic models of strategic network formation and incorporates them as extreme cases: Jackson and Wolinsky' s connections model based on bilateral formation of links, and Bala and Goyal' s ...

      Asymmetric flow networks 

      Olaizola Ortega, María Norma; Valenciano Llovera, Federico (Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, UPV-EHU, 2012-06-22)
      This paper provides a new model of network formation that bridges the gap between the two benchmark models by Bala and Goyal, the one-way flow model, and the two-way flow model, and includes both as particular extreme ...

      Efficiency vs. Stability in a Mixed Network Formation Model 

      Olaizola Ortega, María Norma; Valenciano Llovera, Federico (Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, 2015-03-26)
      The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, the incomplete results relative to effciency in a transitional model introduced in a previous paper, distinguishing two types of links, strong or doubly-supported and weak or ...

      Entry into motherhood: The effect of wages 

      Ariza, Alfredo; Ugidos Olazabal, Arantza (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2007-04)
      Using the ECHP, we explored the determinants of having the first child in Spain. Our main goal was to study the relation between female wages and the decision to enter motherhood. Since the offered wage of non-working women ...

      From bilateral two-way to unilateral one-way flow link-formation 

      Olaizola Ortega, María Norma; Valenciano Llovera, Federico (Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, 2014-11-26)
      We provide a model that bridges de gap between the simplest variation of two benchmark models of strategic network formation: Bala and Goyal s one-way ow model without decay, where links can be unilaterally formed, and a ...

      Network formation under institutional constraints 

      Olaizola Ortega, María Norma; Valenciano Llovera, Federico (2011-05)
      We study the effects of institutional constraints on stability, efficiency and network formation. An exogenous "societal cover" consisting of a collection of possibly overlapping subsets covering the set of players specifies ...

      On the strategic equivalence of multiple-choice test scoring rules 

      Espinosa Alejos, María Paz; Gardeazabal, Javier (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2005-12)
      A disadvantage of multiple-choice tests is that students have incentives to guess. To discourage guessing, it is common to use scoring rules that either penalize wrong answers or reward omissions. These scoring rules are ...

      Optimal Correction for Guessing in Multiple-Choice Tests 

      Espinosa Alejos, María Paz; Gardeazabal, Javier (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2007-12)
      Building on Item Response Theory we introduce students’ optimal behavior in multiple-choice tests. Our simulations indicate that the optimal penalty is relatively high, because although correction for guessing discriminates ...

      Selectivity, pulse fishing and endogenous lifespan in Beverton-Holt models 

      Da Rocha, José María; Gutiérrez Huerta, María José; Antelo, Luis T. (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2012)
      Optimal management in a multi-cohort Beverton-Holt model with any number of age classes and imperfect selectivity is equivalent to finding the optimal fish lifespan by chosen fallow cycles. Optimal policy differs in two ...

      The Economics of "Why is it so hard to save a threatened Language?" 

      Sperlich, Stefan; Uriarte Ayo, José Ramón (Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, UPV/EHU, 2014-02)
      We study the language choice behavior of bilingual speakers in modern societies, such as the Basque Country, Ireland andWales. These countries have two o cial languages:A, spoken by all, and B, spoken by a minority. We ...

      The impact of liberalizing cost-saharing on basic models of network formation 

      Olaizola Ortega, María Norma; Valenciano Llovera, Federico (Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, UPV/EHU, 2015-09-12)
      This paper studies the impact of "liberalizing " the cost-sharing of links on some basic models of network formation. This is done in a setting where both doubly supported and singly supported links are possible, and which ...

      Unilateral vs. Bilateral link-formation: Bridging the gap 

      Olaizola Ortega, María Norma; Valenciano Llovera, Federico (Departamento de Fundamentos del Análisis Económico I, UPV/EHU, 2014-05-28)
      We provide a model that bridges the gap between two benchmark models of strategic network formation: Jackson and Wolinsky' s model based on bilateral formation of links, and Bala and Goyal's two-way fl ow model, where links ...
