      Predicting Betas: Two new methods 

      Esteban González, María Victoria; Tusell Palmer, Fernando Jorge (2009)
      Betas play a central role in modern finance. The estimation of betas from historical data and their extrapolation into the future is of considerable practical interest. We propose two new methods: the first is a direct ...

      Product Differentiation with Consumer Arbitrage 

      Aguirre Pérez, Iñaki; Espinosa Alejos, María Paz (2003-03)
      We analyze the consequences of consumers behavior concerning personal arbitrage in a spatial discrimination context where firms know the consumers distribution but cannot distinguish them by location. The firms' equilibrium ...

      Quesnay and Leontief on Capital and Income 

      Ormazabal Sánchez, Kepa Mirena (2002-03)
      I analyze Quesnay's explanation of the "Tableau Economique" of 1766 in order to show that he made a clear distinction between capital and income. In holding this distinction, Quesnay rejected the nowadays currently accepted ...

      Reconstructing Chi-squared Intra-table Distances in the Analysis of a Set of Contingency Tables 

      Zárraga Castro, María Amaya; Goitisolo Lezama, Beatriz (2007-07)
      To study similarities among the set of rows -and columns- of a contingency table, Correspondence Analysis uses chi-squared distances between row profiles -and column profiles- of that table. This article presents a factor ...

      Risk management for mathematical optimization under uncertainty 

      Aranburu Laka, Larraitz; Escudero Bueno, Laureano F.; Garín Martín, María Araceli; Merino Maestre, María; Pérez Sainz de Rozas, Gloria (2016)
      We present a general multistage stochastic mixed 0-1 problem where the uncertainty appears everywhere in the objective function, constraints matrix and right-hand-side. The uncertainty is represented by a scenario tree ...

      Scenario Cluster Lagrangian Decomposition in two stage stochastic mixed 0-1 optimization 

      Escudero Bueno, Laureano F.; Garín Martín, María Araceli; Pérez Sainz de Rozas, Gloria; Unzueta Inchaurbe, Aitziber (2012)
      In this paper we introduce four scenario Cluster based Lagrangian Decomposition (CLD) procedures for obtaining strong lower bounds to the (optimal) solution value of two-stage stochastic mixed 0-1 problems. At each iteration ...

      Seasonal Stability Tests in gretl. An Application to International Tourism Data 

      Díaz-Emparanza Herrero, Ignacio; Moral Zuazo, María Paz (2013-09)
      The seasonal stability tests of Canova & Hansen (1995) (CH) provide a method complementary to that of Hylleberg et al. (1990) for testing for seasonal unit roots. But the distribution of the CH tests are unknown in small ...

      Selecting random parameters in discrete choice experiment for environmental valuation: A simulation experiment 

      Mariel Chladkova, Petr; De Ayala Bilbao, Amaya; Hoyos Ramos, David; Abdullah, Sabah (2010)
      This paper examines the various tests commonly used to select random parameters in choice modelling. The most common procedures for selecting random parameters are: the Lagrange Multiplier test as proposed by McFadden and ...

      Selection of the number of frequencies using bootstrap techniques in log-periodogram regression 

      Arteche González, Jesús María; Orbe Lizundia, Jesús María (2008-02)
      The choice of the bandwidth in the local log-periodogram regression is of crucial importance for estimation of the memory parameter of a long memory time series. Different choices may give rise to completely different ...

      Semiparametric estimation in perturbed long memory series 

      Arteche González, Jesús María (2005-05)
      The estimation of the memory parameter in perturbed long memory series has recently attracted attention motivated especially by the strong persistence of the volatility in many financial and economic time series and the ...

      Semiparametric inference in correlated long memory signal plus noise models 

      Arteche González, Jesús María (2010-04)
      This paper proposes an extension of the log periodogram regression in perturbed long memory series that accounts for the added noise, also allowing for correlation between signal and noise, which represents a common situation ...

      Should firms allow workers to participate in R&D investment? 

      Campo Corredera, María Luz (1999-10)
      [EN] This paper analyzes if the introduction of new technologies in unionized firms, should be chosen unilaterally by the firm or negotiated with the union. The results show that firms prefer to choose the level of R&D or ...

      Should Owners of Firms Delegate Long-run Decisions? 

      Bárcena Ruiz, Juan Carlos; Casado Izaga, Francisco Javier (1999-11)
      This paper analyzes whether owners of firms have incentives to delegate their long-run decisions to managers or not. The result arising from our analysis shows that owners do have incentives to keep their long-run decisions ...
