    CAGE-AMES Workshop - Guila Vattuone (Warwick Economics)

    1:00pm - 2:00pm,

    Abstract: We use unique evidence from Spanish academia to study whether the presence of women in top academic positions helps to attract more women into the profession, foster their professional careers, as well as affect the quality and type of research departments produce. We exploit the exogenous variation provided by the system of centralized qualification exams that was in place in Spanish academia between 2003 and 2007. All junior researchers seeking a promotion to Associate or Full Professor had to first qualify in an evaluation that was conducted at the national level. Crucially for our empirical strategy, the members of these evaluation committees were selected from the pool of eligible evaluators in the field using a random draw. As shown by Zinovyeva and Bagues (2015), the exogenous presence of a co-author, a colleague or an advisor in the committee increased candidates’ chances of success by around 40%. Preliminary findings at the individual level show that exogenous qualifications have a strong long-lasting impact on promotions. Our department-level analysis shows that departments with a “lucky” female candidate have a significantly larger number of women in the corresponding category during the following 13 years, compared to departments where female candidates were “unlucky”. Our results show that qualification exams provide an exogenous source of long-term variation in the gender composition of departments. We aim to exploit this variation to study how the presence of women in top academic positions affects a number of outcomes.

    Title of paper: The Inception of Capitalism through the Lens of Firms

    Abstract. Using firm-level data, I analyze one of the largest economic experiments of the twentieth century, the fall of communism. After communism ended, post-communist economies experienced a sharp decline and slow recovery of output. This paper studies the output pattern of these countries using microdata from Hungary from both communist and market economy times (1986-1999). I propose a novel decomposition of output change which allows me to quantify the role of productivity, inputs and allocative efficiency in output change. I find that the majority of the output drop is accounted for by a reduction in labor input. In contrast, the recovery in the 1990s largely reflects gains from within-industry reallocation of inputs toward more productive firms. Next, I explore the mechanisms through which the fall in labor and the gains in allocative efficiency operated. I find that during communism, a large share of firms employed an inefficiently high number of people given the wages firms paid. During the transition, these firms saw their employment decrease 40% more relative to other firms. In particular, these firms shed more low-educated, blue-collar, older, and female workers. The evidence is consistent with the interpretation that the corporate sector in communism provided a social safety net in addition to producing output. With regard to the recovery, I provide evidence consistent with the bank privatization having improved allocative efficiency of capital by removing frictions caused by state banks.

    360 Lecture with Dr Luisa Affuso

    5:00pm - 6:00pm,

    Due to unforeseen circumstances, this guest lecture has been cancelled. We will try to re-arrange it for a later date. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    The Department of Economics is pleased to announce that Dr Luisa Affuso will be delivering the first talk as part of the 360 Guest Lecture Series 2019/20 for this academic year.

    Should We Regulate Online Markets?

    Thursday 14 November 2019, 5-6pm
    Room 2.004, Warwick Business School, University of Warwick

    This event is for staff and students only and registration is required in order to attend.

    About the talk

    Online platforms have led to significant innovation resulting in new services and significant consumer benefits. The extent of network effects and economies of scale and scope however, especially relating to big data, has led some online platforms to become the only (or the main) operator in their area, with associated significant market power, and the potential for harmful outcomes for different categories of consumers. Does competition (whether in or for the market) work in online markets or are market failures so pervasive as to call for ex-ante intervention? And if regulation is necessary, what should it look like to avoid the risk of regulatory failures in such innovative and dynamic markets?

    About the speaker - Luisa Affuso

    Luisa is Chief Economist at Ofcom, the UK communications regulator. She is a member of Ofcom’s executive board, and leads the Economics Group. She joined from PwC where she headed the Competition Economics practice.

    Luisa has over twenty years’ experience in the application of competition, regulatory, and industrial economics. She has advised on competition policy matters and has given expert evidence on a number of high-profile cases before several antitrust authorities and Courts in a number of jurisdictions including the European Commission, Italy, UK, South Africa, India, and Singapore.

    Luisa's key expertise is in directing economic analysis and related policy developments to address complex problems in dynamic markets. She has advised on a large number of cases including mergers, abuse of dominance and restrictive horizontal and vertical agreements, as well as damages litigation from antitrust infringements, market studies and market investigations, and State aid.

    Luisa started her career as an academic, initially at the University of Cambridge where she was Director of Studies and Fellow in Economics at Robinson College, and a Research Associate of the Department of Applied Economics, and subsequently at the London Business School. She is currently a Senior Member of Robinson College.

    Luisa was educated at the University of Warwick, where she obtained an MSc and PhD in Economics. She has been listed in the Who’s Who legal of Competition Experts, as one of the world’s leading competition economists for several years, and has been selected by the Who’s Who 2018 as one of the global thought leaders in competition economics.”

    Please note that photography and video recording will be taking place during the event.

  • Wed20Nov

    CAGE-AMES Workshop - Guila Vattuone (Warwick Economics)

    1:00pm - 2:00pm,

    Abstract: We use unique evidence from Spanish academia to study whether the presence of women in top academic positions helps to attract more women into the profession, foster their professional careers, as well as affect the quality and type of research departments produce. We exploit the exogenous variation provided by the system of centralized qualification exams that was in place in Spanish academia between 2003 and 2007. All junior researchers seeking a promotion to Associate or Full Professor had to first qualify in an evaluation that was conducted at the national level. Crucially for our empirical strategy, the members of these evaluation committees were selected from the pool of eligible evaluators in the field using a random draw. As shown by Zinovyeva and Bagues (2015), the exogenous presence of a co-author, a colleague or an advisor in the committee increased candidates’ chances of success by around 40%. Preliminary findings at the individual level show that exogenous qualifications have a strong long-lasting impact on promotions. Our department-level analysis shows that departments with a “lucky” female candidate have a significantly larger number of women in the corresponding category during the following 13 years, compared to departments where female candidates were “unlucky”. Our results show that qualification exams provide an exogenous source of long-term variation in the gender composition of departments. We aim to exploit this variation to study how the presence of women in top academic positions affects a number of outcomes.
