      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 ...

      Stochastic Surface Models for Commodity Futures: A 2D Kalman Filter Approach 

      Fernández Macho, Francisco Javier (2011-09)
      We propose a two-dimensional Kalman filter approach that, additional to the information contained in futures prices evolution over time, makes use of information contained in the term structure of commodity futures along ...

      Survival Analysis Using a Censored Semiparametric Regression Model 

      Orbe Lizundia, Jesús María; Ferreira García, María Eva; Núñez Antón, Vicente Alfredo (2000-04)
      In this work we study the effect of several covariates X on a censored response variable T with unknown probability distribution. A semiparametric model is proposed to consider situations where the functional form of the ...

      Switching Equilibria: The Present Value Model for Stock Prices Revisited 

      Gutiérrez Huerta, María José; Vázquez Pérez, Jesús (2002-07)
      This paper analyzes the different dynamic features displayed by alternative RE equilibria and how these features change for small perturbations of the dividend process parameters. Using historical US data and structural ...

      Syncronized or Staggered Wage Bargaining 

      Bárcena Ruiz, Juan Carlos; Campo Corredera, María Luz (1999-02)
      [EN] This paper analyzes the timing of wage bargaining in a unionized market, assuming that workers are organized in independent unions. In equilibrium, when unions decide the timing of the negotiations, we obtain a staggered ...

      The influence of cultural identity on the WTP to protect natural resources: some empirical evidence 

      Hoyos Ramos, David; Mariel Chladkova, Petr; Fernández Macho, Francisco Javier (2008)
      This paper shows that cultural identity may have considerable influence on the WTP to protect natural resources. The Basque Country, the region with the highest ethnic homogeneity in Europe, serves as an example to illustrate ...

      Time-dependent outside option in an alternating offers bargaining model 

      Rubio Peña, Jesús Ángel (1997)
      In this work I consider an alternating offers bargaining model in which a time-dependent outside option is introduced. The purpose of this work is to analyze relationships between S.P.E. utility pairs induced by such a ...

      Time-Varying Beta Estimators in the Mexican Emerging Market 

      Nieto Domenech, Belén; Orbe Mandaluniz, Susan; Zárraga Alonso, Ainhoa (2011)
      This paper compares the performance of three different time-varying betas that have never previously been compared: the rolling OLS estimator, a nonparametric estimator and an estimator based on GARCH models. The study ...

      Timing of Wage Setting when Firms Invest in R&D 

      Bárcena Ruiz, Juan Carlos; Campo Corredera, María Luz (2003-12)
      In this paper, we analyze the effect that the timing of wage setting (i. e. whether wages set sequentially or simultaneously) has on the investment in R&D of firms, when that investment increases the productivity of labor, ...

      Transboundary Externalities in the Environmental Transition Hypothesis 

      Ansuategui Cobo, José Alberto; Perrings, Charles (1999-01)
      The Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) is a hypothesis which implies that it is possible to "grow out of environmental degradation." Most theoretical models of the EKC relation have not accounted for transboundary and ...

      Two-Stage Nonparametric Regression for Longitudinal Data 

      Ferreira García, María Eva; Núñez Antón, Vicente Alfredo; Rodríguez Poo, Juan M. (1999-01)
      In the analysis of longitudinal data it is of main interest to investigate the existence of group and individual effects under correlated observations across time. In this paper, we develop a nonparametric two-step procedure ...
