    Descriptive info: » Regulation of Banks and Risk Management: Pre- and Post-Crisis.. Regulation of Banks and Risk Management:.. Pre- and Post-Crisis.. Instructor: Robert DeYoung.. The banking system is an essential but unpredictably fragile foundation for our market economies.. To prevent this foundation from collapsing, we regulate banks more extensively than any other market sector.. But our regulatory efforts have too often been unsuccessful.. In this course, we examine the good and bad performance record of bank regulation and analyze the challenges facing bank regulation in the post-crisis world.. The class has three parts.. We begin with a brief history of banking and bank regulation.. The focus is on the genesis of the main facets of bank regulation: bank examination, deposit insurance, capital and liquidity requirements, competition policy, and the bank safety net.. Next, we look at the modern (but pre-crisis) era, a period of adjustment and experimentation.. Bank regulations were repeatedly tightened and loosened in response to banking crises but also to address issues of social fairness and regulation became international in scope.. The final and largest part of the class concerns bank regulation during and after the  ...   Dr..

  • Title: Quantitative Methods for Public Policy Evaluation - Summer School - Barcelona GSE
    Descriptive info: » Quantitative Methods for Public Policy Evaluation.. Instructors: Stephan Litschig and Gabrielle Fack.. The main challenge for policy evaluation is to establish a causal link between interventions and outcomes.. The objective of this course is to introduce the main approaches used in the evaluation of public policies: randomized evaluations, natural experiments, the regression discontinuity design, selection on observables and difference-in-differences.. The course presents strengths and weaknesses of each approach in terms of internal and external validity.. During the morning sessions, each approach will be presented and illustrated with specific policies in the areas of labor, health, and education.. In the afternoon sessions, students themselves (with help from the instructors) replicate the results of a widely-cited published study for each evaluation approach.. Course Outline..

  • Title: Econometrics of Cross-section Data - Microeconometrics Summer School - Barcelona GSE
    Descriptive info: » Econometrics of Cross-section Data with Applications.. Instructor: Jaume García.. The use of survey data is becoming a common practice among economists and social scientists both at academic and professional level.. The main characteristic of this data is that it contains qualitative information, making the use of the regression model not suitable when we deal with models where the dependent variable is either a choice (having or not a private health insurance) or a status (being or not unemployed), or where the dependent variable only takes non negative values and a significant percentage of the observations are zeroes (expenditure on some particular goods like tobacco).. In this course we deal with estimation of these models, paying special attention to the interpretation of the estimates and the limitations of the different models in the literature.. The course is organized in three blocks: the first one (two sessions) devoted to discrete choice models, including count data models ; the second one (two sessions) to limited-dependent variable models, including sample selection issues typical when dealing with cross-section data: and the third one  ...   This will be done using real data for different fields: demand analysis, health economics, labour economics, among others..

This course will explore the models that economists use to understand how the careers of workers evolve over their life-cycles.. Modern panel data provides detailed information about how earnings, hours-worked, and job assignments evolve as workers age..
