What is nudging and how does it work? This survey undertakes the important task to clarify the boundaries of the definitional and functional scope of nudges and investigates how nudging might improve the effectiveness of policy interventions.

A firm’s corporate financial structure is an internal factor that has been often ignored in earlier empirical analyses. This paper demonstrates that a firm’s ownership and financial structure should be taken into account when seeking to account for a firm’s export propensity. Moreover, the impact of these internal factors is particularly important for small and medium-sized enterprises and their probability of becoming exporters.

After decades of rapid economic growth, China’s traditional extensive growth model has become unsustainable. China is currently undergoing a transition toward a new model of intensive growth based on the promotion of productivity growth through innovation and technology upgrading. In this context, it is of great importance to classify and evaluate the contributions of different channels to productivity growth.

Over the past 30 years China has built up the world’s second largest economy. However, 70 million Chinese people still live in extreme poverty. The vast majority of China’s poor live in rural areas. Rural poverty is further compounded by China’s enormous health burden; the country has the world’s third largest TB epidemic, for example. Can social capital be used as a valuable policy tool to improve health outcomes in China?

The fast development of China’s urban economy since the reform and opening-up policy of the 1970s has encouraged more and more rural workers, so-called migrant workers, to move into the cities to work. This paper explores whether there is a relationship between consumption and the social integration of Chinese migrant workers and what policy implications could result from this study.

This paper estimates the causal impact of the UK national minimum wage (NMW) on employment using a non-parametric Bayesian modelling approach known as the Bayesian Additive Regression Trees. The new model allows comparing unemployment-to-employment and employment-to-unemployment transitions of individuals affected by the NMW with similar individuals whose salary are not affected but are sufficiently close to those in the treatment group.

In this paper the author proposes an approach to examine how innovations might arise from a knowledge commons with agents that interact on the basis of their subjective assessment of the relationships between ideas. Two types of knowledge commons emerge from this dynamic – a pure knowledge commons, with a pursuit of knowledge for its own sake and a satisficing knowledge commons, where members seek a predetermined value for their ideas.

The paper reviews alternative perspectives on human decision making under uncertainty, and discusses how such alternatives may provide a new agenda for artificial intelligence research, and for the modelling of human decision making in economics, and other fields.

Econophysics, also known as the “physics of finance”, is the study of the dynamical behavior of financial and economic markets. In this paper, the authors extensively draw from the geometrical model of the Möbius strip—where the electrons move in several directions to produce energy—to investigate how contributions of the economic agents in a Corporate Social Responsibility context produce higher benefits and a lower dissipation of the costs.

“With prevailing regional trade agreements such as FTAs, the degree of market opening to foreign countries has become greater, and the dependence of a country’s whole economy on imports and exports is becoming ever more important. Among the various industries in Korea, agriculture in particular has been recognized as very vulnerable to market opening, because the prices of domestically produced agricultural products are generally higher than those of imported one…”

Introduction

Economics is a new type of academic journal in economics. By involving a large research community in an innovative public peer review process, Economics aims to provide fast access to top-quality papers. Modern communication technologies are used to find for every research issue the best virtual team out of a network of highly motivated researchers from all over the world. Thus, publishing is seen as a cooperative enterprise between authors, editors, referees, and readers. Economics offers open access to all readers and takes the form of an e-journal, i.e. submission, evaluation, and publication are electronic. Read more at Aims and Scope
