  • 2023/08: Has Covid vaccination success increased our marginal willingness to pay taxes?

    José María Durán-Cabré, Alejandro Esteller-Moré, Leonzio Rizzo, Riccardo Secomandi

    The Covid-19 vaccination campaign can be regarded as a public-sector success story.

The present paper tests whether the vaccination process has increased the...

    Moisés Obaco, Daniel Davi-Arderius, Nicola Pontarollo

While social capital is directly related to self-reported neighborhood and national cohesion, resilience, and better...

    If you read sports newspapers and commentary, you could be forgiven for believing that major sporting events are always a great idea for the organising city and country, that it is obviously necessary to fire the manager when a team is underperforming, or that the team that shoots first in...

    2023/05: Real estate prices and land use regulations: Evidence from the law of heights in Bogotá

    Diego Buitrago-Mora, Miquel-Àngel Garcia-López

    Between 2015 and 2017, the Law of Heights (Policy-562) regulated areas of urban renewal in specific locations of Bogotá (Colombia). Using a novel dataset based on detailed information at the block level between 2008 and 2017, we study whether this policy affected real estate prices. Our empirical strategy compares the...
