After 2008 it became evident that financial stability in an economy is largely depending on the stability and the resilience of the banking system. Ownership structure, bad loans, risk management, and lending policy are some of the components to assess the quality and profitability of banks. This study reveals some interesting findings in the context of Indian banking system that run contrary to established perceptions.

Is there a significant wage increase for individuals who have earned a high school diploma? The "sheepskin" effect is actually the wage increase above what would normally be attributed to the extra year of education. The size of the effect, however, is not identical for all individuals but varies with their sex, race, or the continent they live in.

This paper compares the forecasting quality of two models and constructs a new forecasting procedure for the main macroeconomic variables. In this approach the influence of subjective decisions in the forecasting process can be reduced significantly.

As I am gearing up to write a long post on the economics of climate change and the environment (just as soon as I catch up with my overdue grading chores), I note this fascinating paper for deeper study later. I will include its contribution in my long post (or make another one, if it threatens to become unreadably long).

„One of the strongest beliefs in economics is that humans react to priors and incentives, and all economists know of many studies that support this belief. At the same time many economists seem to believe that they themselves are ‘above’ such reactions and engaged in pure truth seeking. Meta-analysis takes the view that economists are humans,“ says Martin Paldam.

FTAs contribute to an increased net trade in South Korea’s agricultural products. It seems that South Korea, a net importer of agricultural products, will import more agricultural products than it will export, after signing FTAs. These are conclusions drawn by GaSeul Lee and Song Soo Lim in their current discussion paper.
