Assessing Multiple Prior Models of Behaviour Under Ambiguity

Thursday 2 February 2012

The recent outpouring of theoretical models of behaviour under ambiguity can be partitioned into two sets: those involving multiple priors (in which the probabilities are not known but probabilities can be attached to the various possibilities) and those not involving multiple priors. This paper concentrates on the first set and provides an experimental investigation into recently proposed theories. Using an appropriate experimental interface, in which the probabilities on the various possibilities are explicitly stated, and avoiding problems with eliciting utilities over the various outcomes by just having two of them, we examine the fitted and predictive power of the various theories, making allowances for degrees of freedom where appropriate. We exclude some badly fitting models and estimate a mixture model over the remaining contenders.

Abstract Through the granular view of institutional investors, we apply conditional value-at-risk estima- tion on micro-level weekly returns of international mutual funds, to understand their systemic risk contribution in the period before, in and after the ...nancial crisis of 2007-09. We ...nd that larger funds at the top end of tail size distribution contribute proportionally more to systemic risk; that systemically riskier funds generate higher return and receive more net in- ‡ow/asset under management than systemically safer funds in market tranquility, but register the opposite in crisis; and that systemic risk contribution accounts signi...cantly the aggregate ‡uctuations in regional interdependence of institutional investors.

Financial Crisis and Macro-prudential policies

Saturday 19 November 2011

Abstract Stochastic general equilibrium models of small open economies with occasionally binding financial frictions are capable of mimicking both the business cycles and the crisis events associated with the sudden stop in access to credit markets (Mendoza, 2010). In this paper we study the inefficiencies associated with borrowing decisions in a two-sector small open production economy. We find that this economy is much more likely to display "under-borrowing" rather than "over-borrowing" in normal times. As a result, macro-prudential policies (i.e. Tobin taxes or economy-wide controls on capital inflows) are costly in welfare terms in our economy. Moreover, we show that macro-prudential policies aimed at minimizing the probability of the crisis event might be welfare-reducing in production economies. Our analysis shows that there is a much larger scope for welfare gains from policy interventions during financial crises. That is to say that, within our modeling approach, ex post or crisis-management policies dominate ex ante or macro-prudential ones.

Who is (More) Rational?

Wednesday 9 November 2011

Abstract Revealed preference theory offers a criterion for decision-making quality: if decisions are high quality then there exists a utility function that the choices maximize. We conduct a large-scale field experiment that enables us to test for consistency with utility maximization. We find that high-income and high-education subjects display greater levels of consistency than low-income and low-education subjects, men are more consistent than women, and young subjects are more consistent than older subjects. We also find that consistency with utility maximization is strongly related to wealth: a standard deviation increase in standard consistency scores is associated with 15-19 percent more wealth.

On Intertemporal Poverty: Affluence Dependent Measures

Wednesday 26 October 2011

Abstract: This paper proposes a class of intertemporal poverty measures based on a sequence-specific weighted average of an individual’s snapshot poverty measures. The weight assigned to the level of poverty in each time period is determined by the number of periods of relative affluence directly preceding that poor period. These can have a short-lived mitigating effect on a subsequent poverty period. The properties of the measures are elaborated and an axiomatic foundation is provided.
