  • 2018/05: Employment effects of on-the-job human capital acquisition

    Joaquín Naval, José I. Silva, Javier Vázquez-Grenno

    This paper quantifies the joint effect of on-the-job training and workers' on- the-job learning decisions on aggregate employment. We present an Index of On-the-job Human Capital Acquisition (OJHCA), based on data from the OECD Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies. The objective of the index is to capture...

    2018/04: Popularity shocks and political selection

    Francisco Cavalcanti, Gianmarco Daniele, Sergio Galletta

    We observe that popularity shocks are crucial for electoral accountability beyond their effects on voters’ behaviors. By focusing on Brazilian politics, we show that the disclosure of audit reports on the (mis)use of federal funds by local administrators affects the type of candidates who stand for election. When the audit...

We find that local politicians withdraw...

    Externalidades del transporte urbano

    Una de las principales razones por las cuales las ciudades existen y prosperan es que la alta densidad de población produce ciertos beneficios económicos. Sin embargo, las altas densidades de población requieren transporte y, las infraestructuras de transporte, especialmente las autopistas, son caras. Además, cuando viajas en coches, impones un...
