The paper investigates unemployment dynamics in six European countries with a particular focus on the gender dimension.
The present paper extents the existing literature providing a theoretically consistent framework for decomposing TFP growth taking into account the indirect effect of pesticides use on farm production.
In this paper we present an endogenous growth model to analyze the growth maximizing allocation of public investment among N different types of public capital.
This paper develops a parametric decomposition framework of labor productivity growth relaxing the assumption of labor-specific efficiency.
We employ a linear unit root test as well as a nonlinear two-regime Threshold Autoregressive (TAR) unit root test to determine whether inflation differentials in the Eurozone during the period 1970-2009 were persistent or transitory.
Under competing vertical chains, we propose that the downstream mode of competition which in equilibrium emerges is the outcome of independent implicit agreements, between each downstream firm and its exclusive input supplier, in each vertical chain.
The paper is an attempt to use the idea of reflexivity in order to organise and set “ready for answers” the ethical issues which have arisen at the very beginning of the field research (on a topic in the economics area) and have been anticipated for later stages of the research project.
We allow for monetary, real, and financial variables to assess the relevant importance of each of the variables to exchange rate volatility in the case of selected EMU members and candidate countries.
