Arbitrage Networks

Jean-Pierre Zigrand, Rohit Rahi
2010 Social Science Research Network  
This results in an equilibrium network of arbitrageurs. The optimal network for arbitrageurs is of the hub-spoke kind.  ...  The reason is that equilibrium networks suffer from a Prisoner's Dilemma problem that prevents network externalities from being internalized.  ...  We show that network externalities give rise to networks that are suboptimal for arbitrageurs. Controlling for depth, an optimal network is a hub-spoke network.  ...

Spillovers and Network Neutrality

Christiaan Hogendorn
2010 Social Science Research Network  
Since the Internet is a network of networks, and since many of the applications that run on the Internet are themselves networks, the total number of networks is huge.  ...  The reverse of a network effect can be called a nonuser negative network effect, so that when a user either leaves or does not join a network, there is a loss of what would otherwise be the positive network  ...

Network Competition: Workhorse Resurrection

Thomas Tangerås
2010 Social Science Research Network  
They charge a higher price for calls outside (o¤-net) than inside (on-net) the network. This vindicates the use of (a perturbation of) the workhorse model of network competition.  ...  In the standard case of di¤erentiated networks, weak income e¤ects are enough to deliver results in line with stylized facts: The networks have an incentive to agree on high mobile termination rates to  ...  Most recently, Hurkens and López (2010) analyze the importance of consumer expectations.  ...

Strategic Random Networks

Benjamin Golub, Yair Livne
2010 Social Science Research Network  
When the value of friends of friends is low, equilibrium networks can be either sparse or thick.  ...  This paper combines game-theoretic and statistical approaches to network formation in order to develop such a model. Agents spend costly resources to socialize.  ...  Hundreds of millions of people now use these networks regularly, spending, on average, hours a day on the sites (Boyd and Ellison, (2007); "Facebook: Statistics" (2010)).  ...

Combining Energy Networks

Jan Abrell, Hannes Weigt
2010 Social Science Research Network  
In this paper we analyze the interaction of the natural gas network with the electricity network applying a partial equilibrium approach.  ...  However, the network character of both markets leads to further effects that are not obvious on first sight.  ...  Natural gas and electricity demand are taken from Eurostat (2010) .  ...

The speci...c component that needs to be replaced during the lifetime of the ...nal good creates a secondary market where independent remanufacturers enter the competition. An environmental regulation imposing a minimum level of remanufacturability is also introduced. The main results establish that, while collusion of the ...rms on the level of

However, if an environmental regulation is to be implemented, collusion should be repressed since competition supports the public intervention better. Under certain circumstances, the environmental regulation can increase both pro...t and consumer surplus. Part of this result supports the Porter Hypothesis, which stipulates that industries respecting environmental regulations can see their pro...ts increase.

The bootstrap of test statistics requires the re-estimation of the model's parameters for each bootstrap sample. When parameter estimates are not available in closed form, this procedure becomes computationally demanding as each replication requires the numerical optimization of an objective function. This paper investigates the feasibility of the Beatlestrap, an optimization-free approach to bootstrap. It is shown that, ex-post M-estimators may be expressed in terms of simple arithmetic
more » ... s therefore reducing the bootstrap of Wald statistics to the bootstrap of averages. Similarly, it is shown how the Lagrange Multiplier and the Likelihood Ratio statistics may be bootstrapped bypassing the objective function's multiple optimizations. The proposed approach is extended to simulation based Indirect Estimators. Size and power of Beatlestrapped tests are evaluated by Monte Carlo simulations.
