Live from the AEA-Meeting Chicago: My favorite (known) studies

| 1 Lesermeinung

The annual meeting of the American Economic Association starts in Chicago today. These are the most exciting studies, selected by Patrick Bernau.

The annual meeting of the American Economic Association starts in Chicago today. It is hard to get an overview about the 170-page Meeting program. But fortunately there are some studies for which previews are already available – of these, I selected my favourites: the papers whose presentations (and discussions) I am most looking forward to. People who don’t attend the meeting will find a link to the presentation or abstract. I am going to blog from the meeting, and I am going to tweet.

Of course, there are many more interesting topics and panel discussions, such as the discussion about the Euro with Axel Weber, Olivier Blanchard, and Jordi Gali or the one about Sovereign Default with Martin Feldstein and Carmen Reinhart. Here, I just focus on the studies that people can already read.

  1. Hier meine Favoriten mit...
    Hier meine Favoriten mit meinen 5 cents:
    .
    The Liquidation of Government Debt:
    Beachtlich, dass auch in entwickelten Wirtschaftssystemen der Anteil der Perioden real negativer Zinsen so bedeutend ist und daher rund die Hälfte staatlicher Defizite (im betrachteten Zeitraum ab 1. Weltkrieg) auf diesem Weg ‚beglichen‘ wurde.
    .
    Quiet Bubbles:
    Classic speculative bubbles are loud – price is high and so are price volatility and share
    turnover. The credit bubble of 2003-2007 is quiet – price is high but price volatility
    and share turnover are low.
    Damit lässt sich allerdings nicht erklären, warum die Hypo Bubbles in so vielen Ländern dermassen gross geworden sind.
    .
    Which Financial Frictions? Parsing the Evidence from the Financial Crisis of 2007-9:
    In Krisenzeiten war die Kreditaufnahme von Firmen nicht so sehr durch Geldknappheit sondern durch höhere Risikozuschläge erschwert.
    .
    The Dark Side of Trading:
    Our main finding is that, controlling for other factors, there is a reliable and economically substantial positive relation between volume of trading and stock volatility. The conclusion is that stock trading produces its own volatility above and beyond that based on fundamentals.
    Woraus man imho schliessen kann, dass sehr wohl eine in der EU ernsthaft diskutierte Tobin-Steuer die Volatilität senken könnte.
    .
    Are Investors Really Reluctant to Realize their Losses?:
    Trading based on beliefs can potentially explain these findings.
    Hat man nicht schon immer vermutet, dass der Glaube für den Fall fehlender zuverlässiger Informationen alle Entscheidungen wesentlich mit beeinflusst?
    .
    The Value of Bosses:
    Es belegt anhand numerischer Daten den bekannten Effekt, dass ein guter Teamchef in den geschilderten Fällen den Output um 60% erhöhen kann.
