    Abstract : This paper explores how the language used in Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting minutes relates to future monetary policy and impacts financial markets. We construct a measure of future-oriented language using a Structural Topic Model combined with a Large Language Model. Regressing stock market reactions on the share of future-oriented language for each topic shows that increased discussion of GDP and monetary policy in the future tense associates with stock price increases. This suggests forward-looking communication provides valuable signals to investors about central bank intentions. The results demonstrate subtle variations in central bank communications can sway expectations and risk assessments, which highlights the importance of thoughtful transparency practices when conveying policy deliberations to the public.

    Class experiments have been shown to aid student learning. Traditionally, these were conducted with paper and pen. However, platforms have subsequently been developed to enable them to be run online. Among other advantages, this allows the possibility of conducting class experiment in a remote, asynchronous format with potential benefits for students and instructors. However, there is little evidence on how this asynchronous approach compares to other delivery formats. To address this, our paper provides novel case-study evidence on the effectiveness of delivery format for class experiments. As part of our presentation, we will also offer provide practical, step-by-step guidance of how to adapt a classroom experiment for asynchronous, remote delivery.

    Abstract: Staggered adoption designs – situations where units are sequentially exposed to a treatment – are widely used in applied economics. The impact of the treatment tends to vary across units and to summarize this heterogeneity researchers commonly report an average effect, for the sake of ease of estimation and interpretation. At the same time, certain economic questions require us to go beyond the average effects and investigate the underlying unit-level heterogeneity directly. This paper provides a practical toolkit for analyzing unobserved heterogeneity in two-way fixed-effect models. We develop an estimation algorithm and adapt existing econometric results to provide its theoretical justification. We apply these tools to study individual heterogeneity in the child-penalty context in three ways: (1) quantifying the unobserved heterogeneity present within CP, (2) exploring the economic impact of childcare policies on CP and deducing the elasticity inherent in such policies, and (3) using the estimated individual-level CP on the right-hand-side to study the intergenerational transmission of CP.

    Abstract: I examine how the provision of a job amenity at the firm level can affect the attraction and retention of workers, generate compensating differentials in wages, and influence wage trajectories and promotions over time. I analyse the impacts of a program that allowed Brazilian firms to extend the length of paid maternity leave offered to their workers from 4 to 6 months. Using a linked employer-employee dataset covering the universe of formal employment in Brazil, I estimate the effects of introducing this amenity by analysing 50,000 firms that adopted the program at different points in time. I find significant impacts on earnings, with an average reduction of female wages of around 3% at the firm level. I also document that the effects of the policy do not manifest immediately and are mainly driven by new hires, indicating some degree of wage rigidity in the market. The proportion of women in high-skill positions shows a significant and persistent decline of almost 10%. This group of workers is 43% more likely to use extended maternity leave in comparison to low-skill workers. My estimates suggest that a worker using extended leave is 12% more likely to be dismissed within two years after birth when compared to co-workers not using the benefit. Finally, I provide causal evidence of within-firm competition effects over earnings and promotions: a female worker who faces a high share of co-workers using extended ML observes an increase in annual earnings of 2.1%. Their probability of promotions is increased by 4.4%. I show that the effects on earnings are mainly driven by lower promotion prospects arising from higher competition and that the promotion effects are driven by male workers being more likely to be promoted.

    Abstract: This paper investigates how the rules that corporations wrote for themselves related to their financing and performance in an environment characterized by poor investor protections, Imperial Russia. We present new data on detailed governance provisions from Imperial Russian corporate charters, which we connect to a comprehensive panel database of corporate balance sheets from 1899 to 1914. We document how variation in votes per share and other shareholder rights provisions were related to corporate choices of using debt vs. equity and whether these governance provisions correlated systematically with performance measures on the balance sheet and in terms of the market-to-book ratio. This investigation reveals the tradeoffs weighed by Imperial Russian corporations and demonstrates the surprising flexibility that Russian corporations enjoyed, conditional on obtaining a corporate charter.

    Abstract. We propose an adjusted 2SLS estimator for social network models when the links reported in samples are subject to two-sided misclassification errors (due, e.g., to recall errors by survey respondents, or lapses in data input). In a feasible structural form, misclassified links make all covariates endogenous and add a new source of correlation between the structural errors and endogenous peer outcomes (in addition to simultaneity), thus invalidating conventional estimators used in the literature. We resolve these issues by adjusting endogenous peer outcomes with estimates of the misclassification rates and constructing new instruments that exploit properties of the noisy network measures. We apply our method to study peer effects in household decisions to participate in a microfinance program in Indian villages. We find that ignoring the issue of link specification and applying conventional instruments would result in an upward bias in peer effect estimates.

    Title (provisional): An Oracle Inequality for Multivariate Dynamic Quantile Forecasting

    Abstract: I derive an oracle inequality for a family of possibly misspecified multivariate conditional autoregressive quantile models. The family includes standard specifications for (nonlinear) quantile prediction proposed in the literature. This inequality is used to establish that the predictor that minimizes the in-sample average check loss achieves the best out-of-sample performance within its class at a near optimal rate, even when the model is fully misspecified. An empirical application to backtesting global Growth-at-Risk shows that a combination of the generalized autoregressive conditionally heteroscedastic model and the vector autoregression for Value-at-Risk performs best out-of-sample in terms of the check loss.

    Abstract : This paper explores how the language used in Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting minutes relates to future monetary policy and impacts financial markets. We construct a measure of future-oriented language using a Structural Topic Model combined with a Large Language Model. Regressing stock market reactions on the share of future-oriented language for each topic shows that increased discussion of GDP and monetary policy in the future tense associates with stock price increases. This suggests forward-looking communication provides valuable signals to investors about central bank intentions. The results demonstrate subtle variations in central bank communications can sway expectations and risk assessments, which highlights the importance of thoughtful transparency practices when conveying policy deliberations to the public.

    Class experiments have been shown to aid student learning. Traditionally, these were conducted with paper and pen. However, platforms have subsequently been developed to enable them to be run online. Among other advantages, this allows the possibility of conducting class experiment in a remote, asynchronous format with potential benefits for students and instructors. However, there is little evidence on how this asynchronous approach compares to other delivery formats. To address this, our paper provides novel case-study evidence on the effectiveness of delivery format for class experiments. As part of our presentation, we will also offer provide practical, step-by-step guidance of how to adapt a classroom experiment for asynchronous, remote delivery.

    Abstract: This paper investigates how the rules that corporations wrote for themselves related to their financing and performance in an environment characterized by poor investor protections, Imperial Russia. We present new data on detailed governance provisions from Imperial Russian corporate charters, which we connect to a comprehensive panel database of corporate balance sheets from 1899 to 1914. We document how variation in votes per share and other shareholder rights provisions were related to corporate choices of using debt vs. equity and whether these governance provisions correlated systematically with performance measures on the balance sheet and in terms of the market-to-book ratio. This investigation reveals the tradeoffs weighed by Imperial Russian corporations and demonstrates the surprising flexibility that Russian corporations enjoyed, conditional on obtaining a corporate charter.

    Abstract. We propose an adjusted 2SLS estimator for social network models when the links reported in samples are subject to two-sided misclassification errors (due, e.g., to recall errors by survey respondents, or lapses in data input). In a feasible structural form, misclassified links make all covariates endogenous and add a new source of correlation between the structural errors and endogenous peer outcomes (in addition to simultaneity), thus invalidating conventional estimators used in the literature. We resolve these issues by adjusting endogenous peer outcomes with estimates of the misclassification rates and constructing new instruments that exploit properties of the noisy network measures. We apply our method to study peer effects in household decisions to participate in a microfinance program in Indian villages. We find that ignoring the issue of link specification and applying conventional instruments would result in an upward bias in peer effect estimates.

    Title (provisional): An Oracle Inequality for Multivariate Dynamic Quantile Forecasting

    Abstract: I derive an oracle inequality for a family of possibly misspecified multivariate conditional autoregressive quantile models. The family includes standard specifications for (nonlinear) quantile prediction proposed in the literature. This inequality is used to establish that the predictor that minimizes the in-sample average check loss achieves the best out-of-sample performance within its class at a near optimal rate, even when the model is fully misspecified. An empirical application to backtesting global Growth-at-Risk shows that a combination of the generalized autoregressive conditionally heteroscedastic model and the vector autoregression for Value-at-Risk performs best out-of-sample in terms of the check loss.
