Who do we invent for? Patents by women focus more on women’s health, but few women get to invent

Date: 01/06/2021 Author(s): Rembrand Koning; Sampsa Samila; John-Paul Ferguson Document type: Article in Journal (refereed) Women engage in less commercial patenting and invention than do men, which may affect what is invented.

General equilibrium oligopoly and ownership structure

Date: 01/05/2021 Author(s): José Azar; Xavier Vives Document type: Article in Journal (refereed) We develop a tractable general equilibrium framework in which firms are large and have market power with respect to both products and labor, and in which a firm’s decisions are affected by its ownership structure. We characterize the Cournot–Walras equilibrium of an economy where each firm maximizes a share-weighted average of shareholder utilities—rendering ... More information
