The following research is the first attempt in the Bulgarian-language literature to quantify the drivers behind the internal migration of the population in Bulgaria after 1878, which according to some authors (Palairet, 1997) is of key importance for the established post-liberation economic and social model. So far, hypotheses concerning migration...

Economic forecasting is always difficult and in turbulent periods becomes nearly impossible: Time-series are short and nonstationary while theoretical underpinning is limited. The brain, however, has mechanisms to deal with that kind of challenges, and neuroscience has uncovered some of them. Here we show how a neural circuit model for emotion gene...

The paper makes a comparison of the results of the application of two-sided and one-sided versions of the Hodrick-Prescott filter on GDP data concerning 27 EU Member States. Based on the results, the overall finding is that, contrary to its assumed advantages, the one-sided filter does not help overcome endpoint unbiasedness. Quite the opposite, it...
