  • Reynolds, S S; Wooders, John (Springer, 2009)
    eBay and Yahoo allow sellers to list their auctions with a buy price at which a bidder may purchase the item immediately. On eBay, the buy-now option disappears once a bid is placed, while on Yahoo the buy-now option remains ...
  • Moreno Ruiz, Diego; Wooders, John (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011)
    If bidders have independent private values and homogeneous entry costs, a first- or second-price auction with a reserve price equal to the seller's value maximizes social surplus and seller revenue. We show that if entry ...
  • Norman, Richard; Church, Jody; Van Den Berg, Bernard; Goodall, Stephen (Blackwell Publishing, 2013)
    Objective: To investigate population health-related quality of life norms in an Australian general sample by age, gender, BMI, education and socioeconomic status. Method: The SF-36 was included in the 2009/10 wave of ...
  • Dvornak, N; Kohler, Marion; Menzies, Gordon (Economic Soc Of Australia Brown Prior Anderson Pty Ltd, 2005)
    The determinants of Australia's exchange rate based on the internal-external balance approach introduced by Williamson (1983) were analysed. Internal balance implies that the economy is operating at supply potential with ...
  • Docherty, Peter (M. E. Sharpe, 2008)
    In January 2008, institutions across the G-lO countries responsible for regulating banks within their jurisdictions implemented the new Basel Capital Accord, now commonly known as Basel II. This new standard for bank ...
  • Geweke, John (Elsevier Science Publishers B.V., 2001)
    Abstract: Contemporary Bayesian forecasting methods draw on foundations in subjective probability and preferences laid down in the mid-twentieth century, and utilize numerical methods developed since that time in their ...
  • Gu, Yuanyuan; Fiebig, Denzil; Cripps, E; Kohn, Robert (Wiley-Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2009)
    Bayesian analysis is given of a random effects binary probit model that allows for heteroscedasticity. Real and simulated examples illustrate the approach and show that ignoring heteroscedasticity when it exists may lead ...
  • Imai, Susumu; Jain, Neelam; Ching, Andrew (Wiley, 2009)
    We propose a new methodology for structural estimation of infinite horizon dynamic discrete choice models. We combine the dynamic programming (DP) solution algorithm with the Bayesian Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithm ...
  • Geweke, John; Whiteman, C. (Elsevier, 2006)
    Bayesian forecasting is a natural product of a Bayesian approach to inference. The Bayesian approach in general requires explicit formulation of a model, and conditioning on known quantities, in order to draw inferences ...
  • Geweke, John (Blackwell Publishing, 2001)
    Abstract: Recent advances in simulation methods have made possible the systematic application of Bayesian methods to support decision making with econometric models. This paper outlines the key elements of Bayesian ...
  • Geweke, John; Gowrisankaran, G.; Town, R.J. (Blackwell Publishing, 2003)
    This paper develops new econometric methods to infer hospital quality in a model with discrete dependent variables and nonrandom selection. Mortality rates in patient discharge records are widely used to infer hospital ...
  • Mccausland, William; Lgui, Brahim (Emerald, 2009)
    Time-varying proportions arise frequently in economics. Market shares show the relative importance of firms in a market. Labor economists divide populations into different labor market segments. Expenditure shares describe ...
  • Geweke, John (American Economic Association, 2007)
    Bayesian econometrics provides a tidy theory and practical methods of comparing and combining several alternative, completely specified models for a common data set. It is always possible that none of the specified models ...
  • Choy, Sai Tsang Boris; Chan, C (University of Western Sydeny, 2005)
    This paper considers a Student-t stochastic volatility (SV) model using full Bayesian approach. A new two-stage scale mixtures respresentation for the Student-t density is proposed and used to speed up the efficiency of ...
  • Houser, Daniel; Keane, Michael; Mccabe, Kevin (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2004)
    Different people may use different strategies, or decision rules, when solving complex decision problems. We provide a new Bayesian procedure for drawing inferences about the nature and number of decision rules present in ...
  • Garratt, R J; Walker, Mark; Wooders, John (Springer, 2012)
    We report on sealed-bid second-price auctions that we conducted on the Internet using subjects with substantial prior experience: they were highly experienced participants in eBay auctions. Unlike the novice bidders in ...
  • Platen, Eckhard (World Scientific Publishing, 2011)
    This paper introduces a general market modeling framework, the benchmark appma.chl which assumes the existence of the nume!'raire portfolio. This is the strictly positive portfolio that when used as benchmMk makes all ...
  • Hulley, Hardy; Miller, Shane; Platen, Eckhard (Graduate School of Economics, Kyoto University, 2005)
    This paper considers a market containing both continuous and discrete noise. Modest assumptions ensure the existence of a growth optimal portfolio. Non-negative self-financing trading strategies, when benchmarked by this ...
  • Scarpa, Riccardo; Campbell, Danny; Hutchinson, W (Madison, 2007)
    A multi-attribute, stated-preference approach is used to value low and high impact actions on four major landscape components addressed by the Rural Environment Protection Scheme in Ireland. Several methodological issues ...
