Symposium: Science Challenges for Law and Policy: Serviceable Truths: Science for Action in Law and Policy

Symposium: Science Challenges for Law and Policy: Serviceable Truths: Science for Action in Law and Policy. Sheila Jasanoff, June 2015, Paper. “As the articles in this symposium issue attest, the relationship between law and science has begun to attract attention as an autonomous field of study, generating its own bodies of expertise and specialized scholarship.

Monetary Policy and Long-Term Real Rates

Monetary Policy and Long-Term Real Rates. Samuel G. Hanson, Jeremy Stein, April 2014, Paper. “Changes in monetary policy have surprisingly strong effects on forward real rates in the distant future. A 100 basis point increase in the two-year nominal yield on an FOMC announcement day is associated with a 42 basis point increase in the ten-year forward real rate. This finding is at odds with standard macro models based on sticky nominal prices, which imply that monetary policy cannot move real rates over a horizon longer than that over which all prices in the economy can readjust…” Link

Recent Research on Competitiveness and Clusters: What Are the Implications for Regional Policy? Christian H.M. Ketels, May 8, 2013, Paper. “This paper reviews implications of recent research on competitiveness and clusters for regions and regional policy. A new framing of competitiveness clarifies the role of regions. Its empirical findings align well with the literature on drivers of regional performance, but there are opportunities for mutual learning. A step-change in the availability of data on clusters and cluster policies has enabled new research approaches…” May require purchase or user account. Link Verified October 12, 2014

Innovation, Reallocation and Growth

Innovation, Reallocation and Growth. William R. Kerr, 2013, Paper. “We build a model of firm-level innovation, productivity growth and reallocation featuring endogenous entry and exit. A key feature is the selection between high- and low-type firms, which differ in terms of their innovative capacity. We estimate the parameters of the model using detailed US Census micro data on firm-level output, R&D and patenting. The model provides a good fit to the dynamics of firm entry and exit, output and R&D, and its implied elasticities are in the ballpark of a range of micro estimates…” Link
