Integrating a contemporary approach to econometrics with the powerful computational tools offered by Stata, An Introduction to Modern Econometrics Using Stata focuses on the role of method-of-moments estimators, hypothesis testing, and specification analysis and provides practical examples that show how the theories are applied to real data sets using Stata. As an expert in Stata, the author successfully guides readers from the basic elements of Stata to the core econometric topics. He first describes the fundamental components needed to effectively use Stata. The book then covers the multiple linear regression model, linear and nonlinear Wald tests, constrained least-squares estimation, Lagrange multiplier tests, and hypothesis testing of nonnested models. Subsequent chapters center on the consequences of failures of the linear regression model's assumptions. The book also examines indicator variables, interaction effects, weak instruments, underidentification, and generalized method-of-moments estimation. The final chapters introduce panel-data analysis and discrete- and limited-dependent variables and the two appendices discuss how to import data into Stata and Stata programming. Presenting many of the econometric theories used in modern empirical research, this introduction illustrates how to apply these concepts using Stata. The book serves both as a supplementary text for undergraduate and graduate students and as a clear guide for economists and financial analysts.

Das Lehrbuch richtet sich an Studierende und Wissenschaftler, die im Rahmen einer Forschungsarbeit selbst Daten erheben und analysieren oder die vorhandene Literatur auswerten müssen. Häufig stehen sie vor dem Problem, nur schemenhafte (und häufig wenig erfreuliche) Erinnerungen an ihre Statistik- oder Ökonometrieveranstaltungen zu besitzen. Die Regressionsanalyse ist die gängige Methode zur Untersuchung empirischer Fragestellungen in den Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaften. Dabei verzichtet der Autor erstens auf jede abschreckende mathematische Ausführung. Zweitens sind die Kapitel so aufgebaut, dass ein selbständiges Studium problemlos möglich ist. Drittens wird der Leser Schritt für Schritt von der einfachsten Regression zu komplexeren Verfahren geführt. Hierzu sind jedem Kapitel die wichtigsten Lernziele und Schlüsselbegriffe vorangestellt. Jedes Kapitel schließt mit einer Reihe von Übungsaufgaben mit Lösungen. Alle Regressionsverfahren und Tests werden jeweils anhand der Statistikprogramme SPSS und Stata sowie mittels Screenshots erklärt. Behandelt werden auch komplexere Probleme (z. B. Heteroskedastie, Autokorrelation, Multikollinearität, einflussreiche Beobachtungen und Fehlspezifikation). Diese ebenfalls nicht unter mathematischen Aspekten, sondern hinsichtlich ihrer inhaltlichen Konsequenzen und möglichen Lösungen. Darüber hinaus erläutert das Buch die praktischen Schwierigkeiten der Ermittlung kausaler Wirkungen (das Roy-Rubin-Kausalmodell), der Unterscheidung von statistischer Signifikanz und inhaltlicher Relevanz sowie optimaler Stichprobenumfänge.

Die getrennte Besteuerung einzelner Konzerngesellschaften richtet sich haupts„chlich nach dem nationalen Steuerrecht des jeweiligen Sitzstaates. Risiken und Gestaltungsm”glichkeiten k”nnen resultieren, wenn Konzernstrukturen im Zusammenspiel mit verschiedenen nationalen Steuergesetzen, bilateralen und multilateralen Vereinbarungen sowie staatenbergreifenden Gesetzen stehen. Die einfache Annahme, dass Konzerne als wirtschaftliche Einheit mehrerer rechtlich selbstst„ndiger Kapitalgesellschaften der Erzielung von Einkommen zur Konsumbefriedigung der Anteilseigner dienen, fhrt zu der in der Theorie schon lange gewonnenen Erkenntnis, dass die Vermeidung von Doppelbesteuerung und die Herbeifhrung legaler Minderbesteuerung als oberste Ziele der Konzernsteuerplanung einen wichtigen Teil der Steuerung eines Konzerns ausmachen. Die Errichtung einer effizienten Konzernstruktur geh”rt dabei mit zu den Kernaufgaben der Konzernsteuerplanung. Die vorliegende Arbeit leistet dahingehend einen Erkenntnisgewinn, ob diese theoretisch vermuteten Auswirkungen der Besteuerung auf Konzernstrukturen empirisch nachzuweisen sind und wie stark die Konzernstrukturierung von der Besteuerung getrieben wird.

An Introduction to Classical Econometric Theory

In An Introduction to Classical Econometric Theory Paul A. Ruud shows the practical value of an intuitive approach to econometrics. Students learn not only why but how things work. Through geometry, seemingly distinct ideas are presented as the result of one common principle, making econometrics more than mere recipes or special tricks. In doing this, the author relies on such concepts as the linear vector space, orthogonality, and distance. Parts I and II introduce the ordinary least squares fitting method and the classical linear regression model, separately rather than simultaneously as in other texts. Part III contains generalizations of the classical linear regression model and Part IV develops the latent variable models that distinguish econometrics from statistics. To motivate formal results in a chapter, the author begins with substantive empirical examples. Main results are followed by illustrative special cases; technical proofs appear toward the end of each chapter. Intended for a graduate audience, An Introduction to Classical Econometric Theory fills the gap between introductory and more advanced texts. It is the most conceptually complete text for graduate econometrics courses and will play a vital role in graduate instruction.

The Political Economy of Anti-dumping Protection

A Strategic Analysis

This book deals with anti-dumping measures (AD) and investigates two questions: First, what country characteristics affect AD use and notably, do domestic political institutions have an effect? Second, (how) is the decision to impose a new AD measure affected by anticipation of trading partners’ potential retaliation? This book applies a strategic perspective to AD to address these questions, presenting a game-theoretic model together with an empirical test. The approach sheds light on the dynamics of interaction between trading partners and allows to capture selection processes which underpin the trade restrictions that can actually be observed. The book provides a fresh look on when and how trading powers apply antidumping measures, how this is shaped by strategic interaction and whether institutions do make a difference to the outcome. In a period in which the international trading system has to cope with numerous stresses such as an increased resort to administered protection largely by big emerging economies, this is a timely and important contribution. Dr. Klaus Günter Deutsch, Managing Director, Research, Economic and Industrial Policy, German Federation of Industries This book successfully integrates two research traditions in international politics – the traditional view that looks at domestic factors of anti-dumping policies and the strategic view that conditions the imposition of anti-dumping measures on the likely, retaliatory behavior of the trading partner. The result is an informative and constructive examination of anti-dumping protection and trade wars in the WTO. Prof. Dr. Thomas Bräuninger, Chair of Political Economy, University of Mannheim, Germany "The Political Economy of Anti-Dumping Protection - A Strategic Analysis" is a major contribution to the important and growing field international political economy. Starting with the “traditional” comparative institutional analysis, which focuses on the implications of democratic and non-democratic regimes for using anti-dumping measures in trade politics, the second part applies a strategic perspective on this type of sanctions uncovering the dynamic interactions between a challenging and challenged countries. For all those interested in understanding the logic of sanctions, the role of institutions, and in how to examine the implications of theoretical models for international political economy this book is a “must read".

Environmental Policy Change in Emerging Market Democracies

Eastern Europe and Latin America Compared

This book examines environmental policy change in twenty-eight Central and Eastern European and Latin American countries against a background of significant political and economic transformation over the past two decades. Through cross-regional comparison and a multi-methods approach, Jale Tosun investigates changes in the regulation of air, soil, and water pollution, genetically modified corn, and the sustainable management of forests. Tosun also looks at the relationship between system transformation and the creation of environmental procuracies in both parts of the world. Environmental Policy Change in Emerging Market Democracies demonstrates that, although political and economic transformations have positively affected environmental policy in both regions, the extent of policy change varies considerably across Central and Eastern Europe and Latin America. At the same time, as Tosun argues, economic integration has acted as a major driver of a stronger governmental enforcement commitment as expressed by the creation of environmental procuracies.

Ownership and Control of Oil examines government decisions about how much control to exert over the petroleum industry, focusing on the role of National Oil Companies in the production of crude oil since the nationalizations in the 1970s. What are the motives for which some producing states opt for less and NOT more control of their oil production sector? When can International Oil Companies enter the upstream industry of producing states and under what conditions? The diversity of policy choices across producers provides the stage for this investigation: different theoretical explanations are confronted, with the empirical evidence, with the aim of finally proposing an interdisciplinary framework of analysis to explain who controls oil production around the world. This book is intended for both specialists and general readers who have an interest in the issue of government control of the petroleum industry. Due to its multidisciplinary approach, the book is aimed at a large academic public composed of scholars of Political Science, International Political Economy, Comparative Politics, and Middle East Area Studies. Moreover, this book should be relevant to international consultants, industry professionals and decision-makers in countries assessing their experience with existing control structures as well as the many countries in the process of joining the ‘petroleum club’ of oil producing nations.

Government investments in social sector has always played an important role in tackling social issues and facilitated in the alleviation of poverty. Hence, budgetary expenditure to be mobilized for such investments needs to be efficiently allocated and utilized to maximize the greatest good. This book focuses on the social sector in India and provides an overview of the sector. The book looks at 15 major Indian states between the year 2000-2011 to see how these states had invested in social sector and whether they had met the criteria of efficient social sector investment. Using stochastic frontier models, the book provides an efficiency norm and making use of this normative estimate, it compares performance across 15 Indian states and suggests important policy implications to improve the future performance of the social sector. The book adopts various quantitative techniques in the analysis and establishes that inefficient and inappropriate allocation of inputs was made in both health and education sectors. The book suggests that such problems and future challenges could be overcome by an appropriate mix of emphasis in different activities. This book will provide insight for those who want to learn more about how to build the capacity of the social sector in more efficient manner by exploring the social sector of India.

Der neue Bestseller von Gerd Gigerenzer Erinnern wir uns an die weltweite Angst vor der Schweinegrippe, als Experten eine nie dagewesene Pandemie prognostizierten und Impfstoff für Millionen produziert wurde, der später still und heimlich entsorgt werden musste. Für Gerd Gigerenzer ist dies nur ein Beleg unseres irrationalen Umgangs mit Risiken. Und das gilt für Experten ebenso wie für Laien. An Beispielen aus Medizin, Rechtswesen und Finanzwelt erläutert er, wie die Psychologie des Risikos funktioniert, was sie mit unseren entwicklungsgeschichtlich alten Hirnstrukturen zu tun hat und welche Gefahren damit einhergehen. Dabei analysiert er die ungute Rolle von irreführenden Informationen, die von Medien und Fachleuten verbreitet werden. Doch Risiken und Ungewissheiten richtig einzuschätzen kann und sollte jeder lernen. Diese Risikoschulung erprobt Gigerenzer seit vielen Jahren mit verblüffenden Ergebnissen. Sein Fazit: Schon Kinder können lernen, mit Risiken realistisch umzugehen und sich gegen Panikmache wie Verharmlosung zu immunisieren.
