  • IEB Report 3/2019: Energy Efficiency and Climate Change

    Energy Efficiency and Climate Change

    Climate change poses a serious threat to both current and future generations. The impact of global warming is already making itself manifest and a notable degree of consensus has been reached on the need to address this situation. However, to do so will require a new energy model that can...

    2019/10: Building(s and) cities: delineating urban areas with a machine learning algorithm

    Daniel Arribas-Bel, Miquel-Àngel Garcia-López, Elisabet Viladecans-Marsal

    This paper proposes a novel methodology for delineating urban areas based on a machine learning algorithm that groups buildings within portions of space of sufficient density. To do so, we use the precise geolocation of all 12 million buildings in Spain. We exploit building heights to create a new dimension...

    2019/09: The long-run redistributive power of the net wealth tax

    José María Durán-Cabré, Alejandro Esteller-Moré

    There is growing debate, both social and academic, about the possibility of levying an annual wealth tax. Until a few years ago, such a proposal appeared difficult to both implement and control, but recent technological innovations, which could greatly facilitate the periodic valuation of wealth, combined with improvements in international...

    2019/08: What are the factors that influence the use of ICT in the classroom by teachers? Evidence from a census survey in Madrid

    Nerea Gómez-Fernández, Mauro Mediavilla

    With the world becoming increasingly digitalized, ICT has a key role to play in the educational process. The aim of this research is to determine the personal characteristics of teachers, as well as those of the school and class environment, that make them more likely to use ICT in their...

    2019/07: Why firms invest (or not) in energy efficiency? A review of the econometric evidence

    Jose García-Quevedo, Xavier Massa-Camps

    The motives that firms have for investing in energy efficiency have been widely analysed in the literature. Particularly, there is a huge literature on barriers to energy efficiency investment and adoption. This paper reviews the econometric analyses carried out in this field. The main objective is to provide a general...

    2019/06: Bolstering community ties as a means of reducing crime

    Magdalena Domínguez, Daniel Montolio

    In this paper we study the effects of bolstering community ties on local crime rates. To do so, we take advantage of the quasi-random nature of the implementation of the deployment of a community health policy in the city of Barcelona. The health-care program called Salut als Barris (BSaB; literally,...
