This paper looks at a hitherto neglected extensive margin of international trade by investigating for the first time the frequency at which German exporters and importers trade a given good with a given country over a year.

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.

While it is generally believed that good governance in a host country helps in attracting inward FDI, most of the empirical studies show that this is not the case. A systematic literature review of these empirical papers is presented here with a view to unearthing the issues within the existing literature in terms of differences in their findings and the reasons causing such differences.

Contrary to intuition, a higher reference price for the consumer does not always imply a higher selling price. In other words, reference price dynamics does not imitate selling price dynamics. Instead, the final impact of an increased reference price on the selling price is the sum of four competing effects.

Export subsidy is a cornerstone of public intervention in productive sectors. How and to what extend does the presence of firms’ cross-ownership alter the outcomes of the standard game in which governments set subsidies for their own exporter firms?

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.

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
