LIGONNIERE Samuel (ENS Paris Saclay) : Fisherian Deflation and Debt Maturity

How does debt maturity structure affect Fisherian deflation ? By introducing debt maturity in a Fisherian deflation model, I demonstrate how it could trigger financial crises. Using a stock-flow analysis, I show that long-term debt could alleviate the risk of current binding collateral constraint, but an excessive reliance could generate future binding collateral constraints over long horizons. It is empirically confirmed by a study based on 122 developing countries over the period 1970-2012. I highlight that debt maturity structure is a good early-warning indicator of Fisherian deflation, which provides information that adds up to the level of external debt.

RAVALLION Martin (Georgetown University) : Bounds on Welfare-Consistent Global Poverty Measures
Co-authors : CHEN Zhijun (World Bank)

New measures of global poverty are presented that take seriously the idea of relative-income comparisons but also acknowledge a deep identification problem when the latent norms defining poverty vary systematically across countries. Welfare-consistent measures are shown to be bounded below by a fixed absolute line and above by weakly-relative lines derived from a theoretical model of relative-income comparisons calibrated to data on national poverty lines. Both bounds indicate falling global poverty incidence, but more slowly for the upper bound. Either way, the developing world has a higher poverty incidence but is making more progress against poverty than the developed world.

Co-authors : LAFOURCADE M. BLAUDIN C. DU THE laudin

How does urban form impacts households’ fuel consumption and driving emissions. We answer this question using French survey data between 2001 to 2011. The use of these three rich individual surveys helps control for selection issues, as some households may live in a location consonant to their socioeconomic characteristics or travel predispositions. In addition, we also use instrumental variables to control for simultaneity between fuel consumption and population settlements. The results suggest that, by choosing to live at the fringe of a metropolitan area instead of a city-center, the sample mean-household bears an extra-consumption of approximatively six fuel tanks per year. More generally, doubling residential density results in an annual saving of approximatively two tanks per household, but this gain might be larger if compaction is coupled with smaller distances to city-centers, improved public transport and reduced pressure for road construction in the metropolitan area. Moreover, the relationship between urban population and driving emissions is bell-shaped : small cities compensate lack of either density or mass transit systems by job-housing centralization.

SANKTJOHANSER Anna (TSE) : Optimally Stubborn
I consider a bargaining game with two types of players - rational and stubborn. Rational players choose demands at each point in time. Stubborn players are restricted to choose from the set of ``insistent’’ strategies that always make the same demand and never accept anything less. However, their initial choice of demand is unrestricted. I characterize the equilibria in this game. Relative to the case with exogenous behavioral types, strong behavioral predictions emerge : in the limit, players randomize over at most two demands. However, unlike in a world with exogenous types, there is Folk theorem like payoff multiplicity.
