    The Rise of New Political Parties in Western Democracies

    The Barcelona Institute of Economics (IEB) devotes the second IEB Report of 2020, coordinated by researcher and professor Matteo Gamalerio, to address the causes of the political fragmentation that Europe has experienced in the last decade with the emergence of new parties and the rise of populism. The focus is...

    Olivier Marie, Judit Vall Castello

We use spatial entropy indexes based on small-scale gridded income data and consistent definition of city boundaries to ensure international comparability of our segregation measures. Results show considerable variation in the levels of income segregation across...

    2020/06: Modeling the U.S. firearms market: the effects of civilian stocks, crime, legislation, and armed conflict

    Topher L. McDougal, Daniel Montolio, Jurgen Brauer

    This study represents an attempt to understand the U.S. firearms market – the largest in the world – in economic terms. A model of the underlying interplay of legal firearms supply and demand is a prerequisite for reliably evaluating the effectiveness of pertinent existing state and federal firearms policies, and...
