    Las desigualdades en la vida son debidas a múltiples factores, entre ellos el entorno en que crecen los individuos y sus diferencias innatas, como las relacionadas con la salud al nacer o, simplemente, las diferencias genéticas. Gran parte de la literatura económica y sobre psicología demuestra la importancia de las...

    2022/09: (IN)convenient stores? What do policies pushing stores to town centres actually do?

    Paul C. Cheshire, Christian A. L. Hilber, Piero Montebruno, Rosa Sanchis-Guarner

    England´s Town Centre First Policy, introduced in 1996, restricted the opening of new retail and other ‘traditional town centre activities’ to ‘Town Centre’ (TC) locations. The aim was to halt the decay of high streets. We explore the impact of the policy on the supply and location of grocery shops...

    2022/08: The role of historic amenities in shaping cities

    Miquel-Àngel Garcia-López, Elisabet Viladecans-Marsal

    The existence of amenities matters to understanding people’s residential choices. Our theoretical model extends the standard urban model by introducing exogenous amenities to explain population allocation within cities. To estimate the model predictions, we focus on historic amenities using detailed geolocated data for 579 European cities. We analyze how the...

    Dirk Foremny, Pilar Sorribas-Navarro, Judit Vall Castelló

    This paper provides novel evidence of the mental health effects of the Covid-19 outbreak. Between April 2020 and April 2022, we run four waves of a large representative survey in Spain, which we benchmark against a decade of pre-pandemic data. We document a large and sudden deterioration of mental health...

    2022/06: The short-term impact of the minimum wage on employment: Evidence from Spain

    Pablo Fernández-Baldor Laporta

    Minimum wages have been widely discussed in the literature. The minimum wage impact on employment strongly depends on labor market concentration and the point at which it is located in the income distribution. Therefore, its study essentially involves exploring whether it has been set too far, beyond the competitive market...

    2022/05: Public transportation, fare policies and tax salience

    María Cervini-Plá, Mariona Tomàs, Javier Vázquez-Grenno

    This paper empirically tests whether property owners react to the salience of taxes in terms of their consumption of public services. Exploiting a policy change that reduced fares on public transport in various municipalities of the metropolitan area of Barcelona, we find that salience of the tax to finance the...
