  • Ngo, Quang-Thanh; Tran, Qang-Van; Nguyen, Tien-Dung; Nguyen, Tung-Thanh (Basel : MDPI AG, 2020)
    One of the remaining challenges in explaining differences in total factor productivity is heterogeneity between sectors and within a specific sector in terms of labor and capital. This paper employs the generalized method ...
  • Bluhm, Richard; Gassebner, Martin; Langlotz, Sarah; Schaudt, Paul (Chichester [u.a.] : Wiley, 2020)
    This paper studies the effects of bilateral foreign aid on conflict escalation and deescalation. First, we develop a new ordinal measure capturing the two-sided and multifaceted nature of conflict. Second, we propose a ...
  • Neugebauer, Thorben; Wolgast, Thomas; Nieße, Astrid (Basel : MDPI AG, 2020)
    Asset-management accounts for a significant share of grid operators’ influenceable costs, which are under high economic pressure due to deregulation. In asset-management, visual inspections are the main measure to determine ...
  • Dissanayake, Pushpa; Flock, Teresa; Meier, Johanna; Sibbertsen, Philipp (Basel : MDPI AG, 2021)
    The peaks-over-threshold (POT) method has a long tradition in modelling extremes in environmental variables. However, it has originally been introduced under the assumption of independently and identically distributed (iid) ...
  • Onken-Menke, Greta; Lauritzen, Ghita Dragsdahl; Nüesch, Stephan; Foege, Johann Nils (London [u.a.] : Taylor & Francis, 2021)
    This study examines how organizations shape potential employees’ social identity prior to joining the organization. This is relevant in light of growing demands for knowledge workers together with a lack of knowledge about ...
  • Bannikova, Marina; Jelnov, Artyom; Jelnov, Pavel (Basel : MDPI AG, 2021)
    This paper proposes a model of a legislature, formed by several parties, which has to vote for or against a certain bill in the presence of a lobbyist interested in a certain vote outcome. We show that the ease with which ...
  • Piel, Jan-Hendrik (Hannover : Institutionelles Repositorium der Leibniz Universität Hannover, 2022)
    The mitigation of climate change through the transition toward sustainable and efficient energy systems based on renewable energy technologies is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century pursued by an ever-growing ...
  • Mboya, Mwasi (Hannover : Institutionelles Repositorium der Leibniz Universität Hannover, 2022)
    This dissertation contains three essays on distinguishing between structural breaks under long memory, testing for fractional cointegration relationship between the financial markets and developing optimal forecast methods ...
  • Jelnov, Pavel (Cambridge : Cambridge Univ. Press, 2021)
    In this paper, I address the U-shaped dynamics (a decrease followed by an increase) in the age at first marriage during the twentieth century. First, I show that the U-shaped dynamics have been steeper in Western that in ...
  • Bertram, Philip; Flock, Teresa; Ma, Jun; Sibbertsen, Philipp (Oxford : Wiley-Blackwell, 2022)
    We propose a new nonlinear Markov-STAR model to capture both the Markov switching and smooth transition dynamics for real exchange rates. We derive stationarity conditions for the model and apply it to the real exchange ...
  • Hoppe-Wewetzer, Heidrun; Siemering, Christian (New York, NY : Springer, 2022)
    This paper investigates the incentives of a credit rating agency (CRA) to generate accurate ratings under an advertisement-based business model. To this end, we study a two-period endogenous reputation model in which a CRA ...
  • Dinh, Cong Khai; Ngo, Quang Thanh; Nguyen, Trung Thanh (Basel : MDPI AG, 2021)
    Sustaining economic growth while reducing dependence on fossil fuels remains a challenge for our world to fight against climate change and therefore finding a way to promote economic growth and increase renewable energy ...
  • Ebers, Axel (Hannover : Institutionelles Repositorium der Leibniz Universität Hannover, 2022)
    Social media platforms allow individuals without great technical knowledge or financial capital to spread violent content and radical messages among a large audience, bypassing traditional media. As violence and radical ...
  • Rodriguez Gonzalez, Miguel; Basse, Tobias; Saft, Danilo; Kunze, Frederik (Oxford : Wiley-Blackwell, 2022)
    This study draws on machine learning as a means to causal inference for econometric investigation. We utilize the concept of transfer entropy to examine the relationship between the US National Association of Home Builders ...
  • Prokopczuk, Marcel; Wese Simen, Chardin; Wichmann, Robert (New York, NY : Wiley Interscience, 2021)
    We compare factor models with respect to their ability to explain commodity futures return comovements. A simple one-factor model based on the first principal component extracted from a panel of commodity returns outperforms ...
  • Loberg, Linda; Nüesch, Stephan; Foege, Johann Nils (Amsterdam [u.a.] : Elsevier, 2021)
    This study provides three real-effort experiments on how a forced distribution rating system (FDRS) influences team collaboration. In the first and the second experiment, we examine the performance implications of an FDRS ...
  • Dissanayake, Pushpa; Brown, Jennifer; Sibbertsen, Philipp; Winter, Christian (Amsterdam [u.a.] : Elsevier Science, 2021)
    Long-term coastal management of beach/dune systems requires the definition and assessment of storm events. This study presents a framework using statistical analyses and numerical modelling (XBeach) to characterize storm ...
  • Hübler, Michael; Pothen, Frank (San Francisco, Ca. : PLOS, 2021)
    While sand has become a scarce essential resource for construction and land reclamation worldwide, its extraction causes severe ecological damage and high social costs. To derive policy solutions to this paramount global ...
  • Bauer, Jan M.; Schröder, Marina; Vecchi, Martina; Bake, Tina; Dickson, Suzanne L.; Belot, Michèle (San Francisco, Ca. : PLOS, 2021)
    Sweet foods are commonly used as rewards for desirable behavior, specifically among children. This study examines whether such practice may contribute to reinforce the valuation of these foods. Two experiments were conducted, ...
  • Leschinski, Christian; Voges, Michelle; Sibbertsen, Philipp (Basel : MDPI AG, 2021)
    It is commonly found that the markets for long-term government bonds of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) countries were integrated prior to the EMU debt crisis. Contrasting this, we show, based on the interrelation between ...
