Date: 14/02/2017
Author(s): Vives, Xavier

Document type: Non-refereed article

Tobin taxes on financial markets, such as the EU Financial Transactions Tax, are regularly under consideration. This column argues that a rationale for a Tobin tax exists even in competitive and informationally efficient markets when traders have private information and they condition on prices. In this situation traders overreact to private information, ...

Finance and Financial Economics: A Debate About Common Sense and Illogical Models

Date: 27/01/2017
Author(s): Fernández, Pablo

Document type: Working Paper

This document tries to answer to a frequent question of students and clients: are Finance and Financial Economics the same thing? My answer is NO: I think that they are very different, although the terms are very often confused and many Finance professor positions in many Business Schools have been filled with Financial Economists. Two ways, among ...

Electricidad: cuánto cuesta y cuánto pagamos

Date: 21/01/2017
Author(s): Martínez Abascal, Eduardo

Document type: Opinion

Estos días, y con motivo de la ola de frío, el coste de la luz se ha disparado: ha pasado de unos 5 céntimos (de euro) el KWat/hora (Kw/h) a casi 9 céntimos. Para entender el asunto, si usted utiliza un aspirador de 1.000 watios (1 Kw) durante una hora, usted habrá consumido 1 Kw/h. Es la unidad que mide el contador de electricidad y en función de ...

Repensar la política fiscal

Date: 20/01/2017
Author(s): Argandoña, Antonio

Document type: Opinion

El sistema fiscal español es demasiado complicado. Lo hemos ido corrigiendo y ahora es inconsistente. Deberíamos reducir la incertidumbre que causa. O sea, volver a pensar. Actitud necesaria antes de decidir. No siempre la practicamos, y menos cuando la Unión Europea nos mete prisa para reducir el déficit, o hay que aprobar los Presupuestos. Volver ...

Author(s): Giné, Mireia; Carter, Mary Ellen; Franco, Francesca

Document type: Article in Journal (refereed)

Using a large sample of executives in S&P1500 firms over 1996-2010, we document significant salary and total compensation gaps between female and male executives and explore two possible explanations for the gaps. We find support for greater female risk aversion as one contributing factor. Female executives hold significantly lower equity incentives ...

Date: 01/2017
Author(s): Giné, Mireia

150 years since Susan B. Anthony advocated for equal pay in 1868, women are still earning less than men.

According to the latest figures available from Eurostat, the average gender pay gap in the European ...

Refining the Failure Rate

Date: 01/2017
Author(s): Estrada, Javier

Document type: Article in Journal (refereed)

The relevance of determining how often a retirement strategy failed in the past, and how likely it is to fail in the future, can hardly be overstated. For this reason, the failure rate has become an essential tool when evaluating these strategies. However, this variable is silent about how long into the retirement period a strategy failed; two strategies ...

Problema para la banca, problema para todos

Date: 22/12/2016
Author(s): Soley, Jorge

Document type: Opinion

Desde mi punto de vista existen contradicciones entre lo que ha dictado el Tribunal de Justicia de la UE y la sentencia del Tribunal Supremo. Por supuesto, las diferencias se explican porque cada Tribunal ha escogido una versión de los hechos. Mi criterio personal es que no hay abuso. Todos los que hemos ido al banco a pedir una hipoteca, generalmente ...

Como en otros períodos históricos, la banca afronta un futuro plagado de retos e incertidumbres tras años de crisis y remodelación. El esfuerzo requerido a los gestores bancarios es de tal magnitud que, en opinión de muchos analistas, este es el momento oportuno para "reinventar" la banca, en el sentido de explorar nuevos cauces para proporcionar servicios ...
