A generalized endogenous grid method for non-smooth and non-concave problems

Date:
| 12:30 - 14:00
Location: UCL Economics Department
Speaker: Giulio Fella Queen Mary, University of London

This paper extends Carroll's (2006) endogenous grid method and its combination with value function iteration by Barillas and Fernández-Villaverde (2007) to a class of dynamic programming problems, such as problems with both discrete and continuous choices, in which the value function is non-smooth and non-concave.

Seminar

Allocating Effort and Talent in Professional Labor Markets

Date:
| 12:30 - 13:45
Location: Institute for Fiscal Studies
Speaker: Derek Neale The University of Chicago

Two personnel practices often characterize professional labor markets. Many young professionals work long hours and expect that, at some point relatively early in their careers, their initial employers will either promote them to a partner position or ask them to leave. The existing economics literature addresses these two phenomena separately, but we build a model that demonstrates how both practices serve a similar purpose. In organizations that place a high premium on identifying talented leaders, both long hours for new associates and up-or-out promotion rules may be optimal ways to facilitate the search for talent.

Conference

ETPF/IFS Conference : Britain, Europe and Tax Competition

Date:
| 09:00 - 15:30
Location: RICS
Availability: Places available

What are the most important plans for the EU? How do they relate to proposals likely to emerge from the OECD? And conversely, are OECD BEPS proposals commensurate with EU law and policy? How far, and in what ways, do member states continue to compete with each other? Are some forms of competition fairer than others? And in the focus on combating tax avoidance, what about the effects of corporation tax on investment and economic growth? The European Tax Policy Forum’s 2015 conference will address these issues with a range of first class speakers.
