Title: Identification and (Fast) Estimation of Nonlinear Panel Models with Additively Separable Two-Way Fixed Effects, with Martin Mugnier (CREST)

Abstract: In this paper, we study the identification and fast estimation of a class of nonlinear panel models with additively separable two-way fixed effects widely used in empirical research. We propose a novel identification strategy and show that all structural parameters of the model (heterogeneous slopes, individual/time fixed effects, and link function) can be nonparametrically identified when T is large. We propose a novel iterative procedure to implement the routinely used MLE. This procedure fully parallelizes the updates of the estimates of individual/time fixed effects. This feature largely alleviates computational burdens when the dataset is large and delivers precise estimates using only fractional running time in the presence of a large number of fixed effects. We revisit Aghion et al. (2013) and investigate the causal effect of institutional ownership on firm innovation in the US. Allowing firms to react differently to institutional ownership changes, the estimates obtained by using our method suggest non-negligible heterogeneity in the causal effect, partly explained by the “Superstar Firm Hypothesis”.

Title:: Colonial institutions and income inequality: evidence from India (1910-1916)
Abstract: This paper studies the relationship between land revenue systems and the levels of agricultural income inequality in colonial India during the 1910s. The first district-level comparative estimates of agricultural income inequality are introduced using wage/income ratios. The type of settlement -which determined when land revenue demands had to be reassessed- is used as an instrument for the land revenue systems to analyse their causal impact on agricultural income inequality. Results show that districts with a larger proportion of non-landlord land revenue systems presented more egalitarian agricultural income distributions. This was due to non-landlord land revenue systems allowing for lower rents and thus a more egalitarian distribution of income.

Title: Delegation, Communication, and Firm Outcomes

Abstract: While a rich theoretical literature argues that organizational structure matters for outcomes in organizations, empirical evidence is scarce. We construct new data on internal communications and regulatory outcomes for the agency that approves environmental permits for firms in one state in India. We use an event study approach to analyze a delegation reform in which junior officers were given the authority to approve or reject applications from firms in certain industries. Delegation was followed, but partially, as junior officers were often bypassed entirely. Communication patterns within the regulator changed, and affected applications were more likely to be approved.

Title: Developing Innovation - The Impact of MNC R&D Labs on Domestic Innovation in India

Abstract: India has been an R&D hub for American and European firms, which have set up centres across the country since 1985. This paper investigates the nature of the relationship between patenting by these R&D laboratories and local Indian entities engaged in innovation. Studying this relationship through a model of horizontal spillovers offers insights into the global distribution of R&D. Using a novel data set scraped from the Indian Patent Database (InPASS) on patent applications filed between 1990 and 2019, I study the impact that patenting by the R&D centres has on local patenting activity. Linking the results to literature on spillovers of FDI, I investigate the mechanisms through which these spillovers occur. We use the results to highlight the policy implications of the globalisation of knowledge production for developing countries.

Title: Marginal Tax Rate Changes in the Long-Run: Evidence from a Structural Estimation, With Patrick Macnamara (U. of Manchester) and Myroslav Pidkuyko (Bank of Spain).

Abstract: Using a structural life-cycle model, we estimate the long-run behavioral response to marginal tax rate changes along the income distribution. We find statistically significant long-run tax elasticities of income of around 0.7 for all taxpayers. We also estimate that the richest top 1 percent displays the highest elasticities of taxable income. In our economy, agents who are sufficiently productive can obtain higher returns on their wealth by choosing to be entrepreneurs. Return heterogeneity, in combination with earning risk and tax progressivity, increases the incentives to save and invest for the richest, high-return entrepreneurs, thus amplifying their income responses to marginal tax changes. This reallocation of capital increases aggregate productivity, generating a larger boost in equilibrium wages. This, in turn, strengthens the income response of the bottom 90 percent, but nevertheless, their response is smaller than at the top.
