      Regardless of what legislation the federal government adopts to address health insurance coverage for nonelderly Americans, private insurance will likely play a major role. This article begins by listing some of the major ...
    • Regional differences in recommended cancer treatment for the elderly 

      Ho, Vivian; Ku-Goto, Meei-Hsiang; Zhao, Hui; Hoffman, Karen E; Smith, Benjamin D; Giordano, Sharon H (2016)
      Abstract Background Little is known about regional variation in cancer treatment and its determinants. We compare rates of adherence to treatment guidelines for elderly ...
    • Regulation and Capacity Competition in Health Care: Evidence from U.S. Dialysis Markets 

      Dai, Mian; Tang, Xun (2015)
      This paper studies entry and capacity decisions by dialysis providers in the United States. We estimate a structural model where providers make continuous strategic choices of capacity based on their private information ...
    • Risk and return: Long-run relations, fractional cointegration, and return predictability 

      Bollerslev, Tim; Osterrieder, Daniela; Sizova, Natalia; Tauchen, George (2013)
      Univariate dependencies in market volatility, both objective and risk neutral, are best described by long-memory fractionally integrated processes. Meanwhile, the ex post difference, or the variance swap payoff reflecting ...
    • Robust dynamic energy use and climate change 

      Li, Xin; Narajabad, Borghan; Temzelides, Ted (2016)
      We study a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium model in which agents are concerned about model uncertainty regarding climate change. An externality from greenhouse gas emissions damages the economy's capital stock. We ...
    • Semi-nonparametric spline modifications to the Cornwell–Schmidt–Sickles estimator: an analysis of US banking productivity 

      Almanidis, Pavlos; Karagiannis, Giannis; Sickles, Robin C. (2015)
      This paper modifies the Cornwell, Schmidt and Sickles [CSS (J Econom 46:185–200, 1990)] time-varying specification of technical efficiency to allow for switching patterns in temporal changes, which may occur more than once ...
    • Some unpleasant bargaining arithmetic? 

      Eraslan, Hülya; Merlo, Antonio (2017)
      It is commonly believed that voting rules that are relatively more inclusive (e.g., unanimity or supermajority), are likely to yield relatively more equitable outcomes than simple-majority rule. We show that this is not ...
    • Structural Analysis of Nonlinear Pricing 

      Luo, Yao; Perrigne, Isabelle; Vuong, Quang (2018)
      This paper proposes a new methodology for analyzing nonlinear pricing data. We establish identification of the model primitives with a known tariff and characterize the model restrictions on observables. We propose a ...
    • Teacher Quality in Public and Private Schools under a Voucher System: The Case of Chile 

      Behrman, Jere R.; Tincani, Michela M.; Todd, Petra E.; Wolpin, Kenneth I. (2016)
      Chile is unusual in having long-term experience with nationwide school vouchers. A key criticism of school voucher systems is that they make it easier for private schools to attract better teachers to the detriment of ...
    • Unobserved Heterogeneity in Matching Games 

      Fox, Jeremy T.; Yang, Chenyu; Hsu, David H. (2018)
      Agents in two-sided matching games vary in characteristics that are unobservable in typical data on matching markets. We investigate the identification of the distribution of unobserved characteristics using data on who ...
