      Dynamic Inefficiency in an Overlapping Generation Economy with Pollution and Health Costs 

      Gutiérrez Huerta, María José (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2002-01)
      We analyze an overlapping generations model in which pollution arises, in an accumulatively way, from production. Householders do not care directly about the environment, but pollution leads them to incur health costs when ...

      Growth in Overlapping Generation Economies with Non-Renewable Resources 

      Agnani, Betty; Gutiérrez Huerta, María José; Iza Padilla, María Amaya (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2002)
      Feasibility of positive steady-state growth in overlapping generation (OLG) economies that use non-renewable resources as essential inputs in the production process is analyzed. The model we use is, in essence, that of ...

      Lessons from the northern hake long-term management plan: Could the economic assessment have accepted it? 

      Da Rocha, José María; Gutiérrez Huerta, María José (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2011-01)
      An economic expert working group (STECF/SGBRE-07-05) was convened in 2007 for evaluating the potential economic consequences of a Long-Term Management Plan for the northern hake. Analyzing all the scenarios proposed by ...

      Markov Switching Risk Premium and the term structure of interest rates. Empirical evidence from US post-war interest rates 

      Gutiérrez Huerta, María José; Vázquez Pérez, Jesús (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2002-04)
      This paper considers the basic present value model of interest rates under rational expectations with two additional features. First, following McCallum (1994), the model assumes a policy reaction function where changes ...

      Pulse vs. Optimal Stationary Fishing: The Northern Stock of Hake 

      Da Rocha, José María; Gutiérrez Huerta, María José; Taboada Antelo, Luis (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2011-11)
      Pulse fishing may be a global optimal strategy in multicohort fisheries. In this article we compare the pulse fishing solutions obtained by using global numerical methods with the analytical stationary optimal solution. ...

      R&D Policy in Economies with Endogenous Growth and Non-Renewable Resources 

      Agnani, Betty; Gutiérrez Huerta, María José; Iza Padilla, María Amaya (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2007-10)
      The aim of this paper is to analyze how active R&D policies affect the growth rate of an economy with endogenous growth and non-renewable resources. We know from Scholz and Ziemens (1999) and Groth (2006) that in infinitely ...

      Reconciling yield stability with international fisheries agencies precautionary preferences: the role of non constant discount factors in age structured models 

      Da Rocha, José María; García-Cutrín, Javier; Gutiérrez Huerta, María José; Touza, Julia (2015)
      International fisheries agencies recommend exploitation paths that satisfy two features. First, for precautionary reasons exploitation paths should avoid high fishing mortality in those fisheries where the biomass is ...

      Reference Points and Optimal Management in Stochastic Age-Structured Fisheries Models 

      Da Rocha, José María; Gutiérrez Huerta, María José (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2009-07)
      The purpose of this article is to characterize dynamic optimal harvesting trajectories that maximize discounted utility assuming an age-structured population model, in the same line as Tahvonen (2009). The main novelty of ...

      Reference Points Based on Dynamic Optimisation: A Versatil Algorithm for Mixed Fishery Management with Bio-economic Agestructured Models 

      Da Rocha, José María; Gutiérrez Huerta, María José; Cerviño, Santiago (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2012)
      Single-species management objectives may not be consistent within mixed fisheries. They may lead species to unsafe situations, promote discarding of over-quota and/or misreporting of catches. We provide an algorithm for ...

      Second-best tax policy in a growing economy with externalities 

      Cassou, Steven P.; Gorostiaga Alonso, Miren Arantzazu; Gutiérrez Huerta, María José; Hamilton, Stephen F. (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2006-10)
      This paper investigates the exploitation of environmental resources in a growing economy within a second-best scal policy framework. Agents derive utility from two types of consumption goods one which relies on an ...

      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 ...

      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 ...

      The changing behaviour of the term structure of post-war US 

      Gutiérrez Huerta, María José; Vázquez Pérez, Jesús (University of the Basque Country, Department of Foundations of Economic Analysis II, 2002-07)
      Using U.S. interest rate data covering the period 1950:1-1992:7, this paper tests the rational expectations model of the term structure of interest rates. We show evidence that the rational expectations model of the term ...
