1. Lavetti, Kurt. Essays On The Estimation Of Prices In Implicit Markets .

Degree: 2011, Cornell University

Chapter one examines workers' labor supply decisions to estimate both the equilibrium compensating differential for fatal risk and marginal willingness to accept fatal risk. Using new panel data from commercial fishing deckhands in the Alaskan Bering Sea between 2003-2009, I exploit variation within the worker-firm level in hourly earnings across fishing seasons and exogenous variation in weatherdependent seasonal fatality rates to identify the compensating differential for occupational fatality risk. This identification approach avoids many of the common sources of bias in the estimation of compensating differentials, including endogenous job switching and unobserved worker and firm heterogeneity. Additionally, changes in earnings caused by exogenous changes in risk within the worker-firm level identify information about individual preferences for risk that is not conveyed by the equilibrium wage-risk envelope. A structural labor supply model incorporates dynamic job-specific skill accumulation, which affects subsequent earnings. The compensating differential, normalized to a value of statistical life, is estimated to be 6.17 million using a reduced-form model and 6.75 million using a structural model. Estimates from both models suggest that wages increase as a concave function of the level of risk. The findings imply that aversion to marginal increases in fatal risk falls as the level of risk rises, and that the marginal VSL is a decreasing function of the level of risk. The second chapter uses unique data from a survey of physicians in 5 states to provide the first comprehensive analysis of the effects of non-compete agreements on labor markets. We estimate factors associated with the use of non-competes, the compensating wage differential for accepting a non-compete clause, and discuss the effects that non-compete clauses have on mobility and the geographic distribution of primary care physicians. We find that non-competes are used frequently among primary care physicians, and that they impose binding constraints on labor market behavior and are associated with significant compensating wage premiums of about 11% of wages. The analysis suggests that state-level public policies play an important role, as we find that states with very strict enforceability of non-compete agreements have fewer physicians per capita and higher prices for physician services.

2. Li, Chao. Institutional changes and dividends.

Degree: 2015, University of Melbourne

Prior research suggests that dividends can curb agency costs between insiders (managers and/or controlling shareholders) and outside shareholders, and thus are an important corporate governance mechanism to protect outside shareholders’ interests (Jensen 1986; Lang and Litzenberger 1989; Faccio et al. 2001; Kose et al. 2011). In this thesis, I investigate two capital market institutional changes and their implications for firms’ dividend policies. These two institutional changes are: (1) a dividend regulatory change in the Chinese market in 2012; and (2) the surge of credit default swaps (CDSs) in the US market. Specifically, the thesis consists of three standalone essays. In each essay, I investigate firm and/or investor responses to the institutional changes and the extent to which these responses are consistent with the agency cost explanation for dividends.

Subjects/Keywords: dividend regulation; implicit contract; contract failure; stock price reaction; emerging markets; credit default swaps

3. Rodrigues, João Manuel Pereira. Especificação de um modelo hedónico de preços de habitação para Portugal.

Degree: 2008, Technical University of Lisbon

Mestrado em Gestão e Avaliação Imobiliária

A teoria dos preços hedónicos tem aplicação prática no estudo de mercados implícitos, nos quais são transaccionados bens heterogéneos. Estes bens resultam da combinação de um conjunto de bens homogéneos, cujas características são bem identificadas pelos consumidores e produtores, mas para os quais não há um mercado específico, pelo que os consumidores não os podem adquirir isoladamente estando, por isso, limitados à aquisição conjunta de diferentes combinações de atributos, por um preço global. A habitação é um exemplo claro de um bem heterogéneo. No presente trabalho de dissertação, faz-se a aplicação da teoria dos preços hedónicos ao estudo dos preços no mercado da habitação, no território de Portugal continental. Para o efeito recorre-se exclusivamente a informação que, fruto da crescente utilização e divulgação da informática e em particular da Internet, se encontra actualmente disponível em portais especializados do imobiliário. Apresentam-se os resultados e as conclusões que decorrem desta abordagem.

The theory of the hedonic prices has practical application in the study of implicit markets, in which are traded heterogenous goods. These goods are the result from the combination of homogenous goods, whose attributes are well identified by the consumers and producers, but for which there is not a specific market, therefore the consumers cannot acquire them separately, being, by that, limited to the combined acquisition of bundles of characteristics, for a global price. Housing is a clear example of a heterogenous good. In the present work of dissertation, the theory of the hedonic prices is applied to the study of the prices in the housing market, in the territory of Portugal continental. For this purpose, as result of the growing utilization and disclosure of data processing and in specific of the Internet, information currently available in web sites specialized in real estate is used. The results and the conclusions that elapse from this approach are presented.

Advisors/Committee Members: Carvalho, Joaquim Montezuma de.
