  • 2021/07: Ignorance is bliss: voter education and alignment in distributive politics

    Federico Boffa, Francisco Cavalcanti, Amedeo Piolatto

    Central politicians channel resources to sub-national entities for political gains. We show formally that the central politicians' allocation decision has two drivers: political alignment (between central and local politicians) and the level of local political accountability. However, drivers count one at a time: alignment matters before local elections, while local...

    2021/06: The impact of ‘competition for the market’ regulatory designs on intercity bus prices

    Javier Asensio, Anna Matas

    Spain regulates its intercity bus market by means of a ‘competition for the market’ mechanism, whose design has been modified several times in the last years. This implies that current services are operated under contracts whose conditions are heterogeneous. We take advantage of such fact to empirically measure the impact...

    IEB Report 3/2021: The Impact of Digitalisation on Tax Systems

    The Impact of Digitalisation on Tax Systems

However, because this decision does not...

    IEB Report 2/2021: University Reform

    University Reform

    In developed countries, the importance of university systems for their respective societies is far greater than their specific weight. The contribution they make, in terms of training human capital, research and knowledge transfer, is a decisive force for the development of the knowledge society in said countries – and Spain...

    2021/05: Terrorist attacks, Islamophobia and newborns’health

    Grace Armijos Bravo, Judit Vall Castelló

    Islamophobia has increased in recent years which can be partly attributed to terrorist attacks perpetrated by jihadist groups. Islamophobia might be a source of stress, being problematic for pregnant (Muslim) women. We examine how stress generated by the 2017 Catalonia (Spain) attacks affected the health of newborns whose mothers are...
