Article
In this article, we present a two‐period model in which one firm operates in two markets: a monopoly and a duopoly. Assuming that this firm has private information on the cross‐price elasticity of demand between the products sold in both markets, it limits its quantity supplied in the monopoly market in order to make its rival in the other market b...

Recent gender literature has highlighted that boys and girls devote their out-of-school time in dissimilar ways, which may differentially influence their academic achievement. Furthermore, this literature indicates that these gender differences may be rooted in society’s gender stereotypes when using this time. To analyse this issue we employ longi...
Article
Unlike previous literature, in which firms compete in the market with the same information, this article analyses a two‐period duopoly game in which only one firm is completely informed about the market conditions, whereas the other firm is unaware of one parameter of the demand curve. In this setting, we describe how the informed firm uses its pri...
Article
This paper explores price-setting in a two-period duopoly model where only one firm, which is non-Bayesian, is uncertain about some market conditions. In this context, the informed firm must choose whether to maximize its profits in the first period or to choose a suboptimal price in period 1 to fool its rival in the second period. Under certain co...
Article
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to analyze the effects on the gender wage gap of women’s access to supervisory jobs within each establishment in the Spanish labor market. Previous empirical studies have found that promoting women to supervisory positions has decreased the wage difference between genders among workers beneath them. However, th...
Article
Recent empirical literature has highlighted that adolescents show gender differences in academic performance. The present study intends to disentangle the contribution of some less well-known factors to that gender difference in the fourth year of secondary education. To this aim, we use recent methodological advances in decomposition techniques. W...

Using matched employer–employee data from the Spanish labour market in 2010, we analyse the effects of industrial, establishment and occupational segregation on the gender wage differential, disaggregating the latter contribution by different groups of workers belonging to different occupational areas and responsibility levels. These workers are em...

Workers belonging to the same indust...

Este artículo contrasta si los hogares españoles ahorran parte de su renta para prevenir posibles imprevistos en el futuro. Para ello, se utiliza una variable ficticia indicativa del período en que se reduce el subsidio de desempleo, pues implica un aumento del riesgo de renta soportado por los hogares. A partir del modelo de ciclo vital con incert...

Question
My intuition is the following. I think it is likely that those firms with more women in jobs with supervisory tasks will have lower levels of occupational segregation by gender, or the effect of this type of gender segregation on the wage gap will be lower. Could anybody suggest to me some papers to justify my research? Moreover, I would like to find a researcher with a good econometric background to cooperate with me in this research. I could provide a good database for the Spanish labor market.
Question
I have read some papers about price setting in a duopoly model with demand uncertainty and symmetric information (Aghion, Espinosa and Jullien, 1993; Harrington, 1992, 1995; Mirman, Samuelson and Schlee, 1994), but I would like to extend these models to a context where only one firm is uncertain about the degree of substitability between products.
