The Impact Of Targeting Technology On Advertising Markets And Media Competition, Susan Athey, Joshua S. Gans Dec 2009

The Impact Of Targeting Technology On Advertising Markets And Media Competition, Susan Athey, Joshua S. Gans

Joshua S Gans

This paper examines the impact of geographic targeting technology on local advertising markets when local and general media outlets compete for readers. In a base case, it is demonstrated that when the general outlet adopts such technologies, this does not impact on advertising prices or profits as that outlet expands ad space to meet demand. When wasted impressions are costly or there are advertiser capacity constraints that create competition between outlets for advertisers, this conclusion changes and there is a positive return to targeting. This adoption is likely to adversely impact on local outlet profits.


Labor Productivity In The Informal Sector: Necessity Vs. Opportunity Firms, Mohammad Amin Dec 2009

Labor Productivity In The Informal Sector: Necessity Vs. Opportunity Firms, Mohammad Amin

Mohammad Amin

Differences between opportunity and necessity firms within the informal sector have long been debated. This paper revisits this debate using a new dataset of informal firms in three African countries. Focusing on average productivity of labor, a measure of firm efficiency, we find that it is much higher for opportunity compared with necessity firms. However, this difference between necessity and opportunity firms holds only within the sample of manufacturing firms. For firms in the service sector, there is no such difference.

Portable Bank Account, Vijaya Krushna Varma Mr Dec 2009

Portable Bank Account, Vijaya Krushna Varma Mr

VIJAYA KRUSHNA VARMA Mr

Varma suggests radical bank reforms to usher in fully liberalized and transparent economic system. The time has come to radically reform banking sector to the ultimate level where there will be no NPAs, unemployment, black money, fake currency, economic recession and corruption. The government should liberalise the banking sector to establish a bank branch at every village or colony having population of 2500 so that each bank shall handle approximately 2000 accounts. The main objectives of fully liberalised banking sector are as follows* To give every citizen above the age of 15 years a portable bank savings account with permanent ...

Hobbes: Caos De La Conepción Liberal, Alejandro Pérez Y Soto Dominguez Dec 2009

Hobbes: Caos De La Conepción Liberal, Alejandro Pérez Y Soto Dominguez

Alejandro Pérez y Soto Dominguez

Nos proponemos examinar los conceptos que configuran la organización social desde la perspectiva del caos en el contexto liberal. La metáfora del caos remite a la idea de la cooperación social en donde el reconocimiento de los deseos privados constituye la base del bien común. De esta manera se parte de suponer la condición del conocimiento que tienen los individuos de la situación caótica en la sociedad civil.


Obstacles To Registering: Necessity Vs. Opportunity Entrepreneurs, Mohammad Amin Dec 2009

Obstacles To Registering: Necessity Vs. Opportunity Entrepreneurs, Mohammad Amin

Mohammad Amin

Using a new dataset on informal or unregistered firms in three African countries, this paper identifies the type of firms or entrepreneurs that experience greater obstacles to registering. We find important differences between necessity and opportunity entrepreneurs. Averaged over six different obstacles, the severity of obstacles to registering is much higher for necessity compared with opportunity entrepreneurs. This finding appears to be driven by important obstacles including taxes that registered businesses have to pay, registration fees and information required to complete registration procedures. We argue that our results have important policy implications.

Clusters And Strategy In Regional Economic Development, Edward Feser Dec 2009

Clusters And Strategy In Regional Economic Development, Edward Feser

Edward J Feser

Many economic development practitioners view cluster theory and analysis as constituting a general approach to strategy making in economic development, which may lead them to prioritize policy and planning interventions that cannot address the actual development challenges in their cities and regions. This paper discusses the distinction between strategy formation and strategic planning, where the latter is the programming of development strategies that are identified through a blend of experience, intuition, and analysis. Cluster theories and analytical tools can provide useful informational inputs into a strategy making effort and they can also be helpful for programming specific interventions (i.e ...

O Fim Do "Privilégio Exorbitante": Comentários A Currency And State Power, De Benjamin J. Cohen [The End Of The "Exorbitant Privilege": Commentary To Currency And State Power, By Benjamin J. Cohen], Jefferson Alvares

Jefferson Alvares

Busca contextualizar o estudo Currency and State Power, de Benjamin J. Cohen, descrever sua estrutura conceitual e suas conclusões, e submeter a crítica a premissa de que o poder monetário é decorrência da flexibilidade macroeconômica que acompanha as moedas internacionais.

[The paper aims to set the background for the essay Currency and State Power, by Benjamin J. Cohen, to describe its conceptual framework and conclusions, and to subject to a critical appraisal the premise that monetary power is a result of macroeconomic flexibility, which stems from the international standing of a currency.]

The Effect Of A Collective Exchange Rate Adjustment On East Asian Exports, Mizanur Rahman, Kaliappa P. Kalirajan

Mizanur Rahman

This paper estimates long-run effects of a collective exchange rate adjustment on multilateral exports from China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. The findings show that a 1 percent generalized appreciation of all East Asian exchange rates would reduce East Asian exports by about 3 per cent.
