    "Muddled Information" (joint with Navin Kartik at Columbia University)
    1:30-3:00 p.m. Jacobs Center Room 619

    Abstract: We introduce a model of signaling in which agents are heterogeneous on two dimensions. The first is the natural action: the action taken in the absence of signaling concerns. The second is gaming ability: a parameter for the costs of increasing actions beyond the natural level. Agents’ equilibrium actions “muddle” together information about both dimensions. As incentives to take higher actions increase—due to higher stakes or more easily manipulated signaling technology—more information is revealed about gaming ability, and less about their natural actions. Our analysis points to a tradeoff when observers are interested in agents’ natural actions. Making actions observable to a larger market gives new observers better information, but also raises agents’ incentives to take higher actions. Hence, the information about agents’ natural actions is further muddled for existing observers. We discuss applications to signaling in credit scoring, school testing, and web search.

    "Burden of Past Promises"

    Abstract:

    We explore the evolution of a firm's organization and performance. The owner and her employee play an infinitely repeated trust game in which the owner benefits from delegation only if the employee honors her trust by choosing her preferred project. The owner, however, cannot observe whether the project is available. We characterize the optimal relational contract and highlight two implications. First, profits decline over time as the firm's organization evolves from flexibility to rigidity. Second, which type of rigid organization the firm converges to—and thus its long-run profitability—is determined by random events in its early history.

    Andrew Butters: "How Long is the Long Run?: Evidence of Market Integration in Wholesale Electric Power."
        Abstract:
    We suggest an innovative approach to investigate market integration. Specifically, we develop a framework that utilizes the price transmission ratio along different horizons to evaluate the level of substitutability between two goods. After outlining the methodological advantages of the approach over standard methods, the techniques are used in the U.S. wholesale electricity setting. Over the period, 2002-2011, electricity supplied among the different regions of the U.S. are found to have high price transmission ratios at frequencies of a week or longer, while at shorter frequencies price transmission ratios across different locations are negligible.(JEL C33, C8, L94).

    Bingyang Li: "Unlock the Black Box of Corporate Political Strategies: The Interaction Between Contribution and Lobbying." 
        Abstract:
    “Firms engage in two kinds of political strategies to influence government's decisions: campaign contribution and lobbying. Previous literature has not yet agreed on what the nature of lobbying is, let alone the connection between the two strategies. In this paper, we investigate how political connection built by contribution affects corporate lobbying by exploiting multiple sources of data on corporate political activities, federal elections, and legislative voting. We use random outcomes in close federal elections as the identifying variation of political connections, and measure policy outcomes of lobbying by looking at firms' stock market reactions when a bill was voted in congress. We found an increase in annual total lobbying but a decrease in lobbying per bill when a firm gets more connected. Results also suggest that connected firms get more favorable policies measured by greater boosts in market valuation. Our empirical findings would be in line with a model where firms first contribute to establish connections with the government, and later use lobbying to signal private information so as to influence public policies.”

    "Optimal Information Disclosure: Quantity vs. Quality"
    Abstract:

        A sender chooses ex ante how her information will be disclosed to a privately informed receiver who then takes one of two actions. The sender wishes to maximize the probability that the receiver takes the desired action. The sender faces an ex ante quantity-quality tradeoff: sending positive messages more often (in terms of the sender's information) makes it less likely that the receiver will take the desired action (in terms of the receiver's information). Interestingly, the sender's and receiver's welfare is not monotonic in the precision of the receiver's private information: the sender may find it easier to influence a more informed receiver, and the receiver may suffer from having more precise private information. Necessary and sufficient conditions are derived for full and no information revelation to be optimal.

    "Cracking the Codes: Do Electronic Medical Records Facilitate Hospital Revenue Enhancement?"
    12:10PM - 1:40PM, Jacobs Center Managemet & Strategy Dept., Leverone 619
    Abstract
    Electronic Medical Records (EMR) has great potential to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of patient care delivery. However, as the Federal government started providing monetary incentives to accelerate EMR adoptions in hospitals and physician practices, concerns arose that the use of EMRs could facilitate hospitals' revenue-enhancing practice, and thus escalate health care expenditures rather than reduce costs. This study uses a longitudinal multi-state patient discharge dataset to examine the effect of EMR adoption on medical coding and billing in inpatient settings. I find that the fraction of patients that are coded into higher-paying DRG codes increases significantly after EMR adoption. This effect is particularly strong among for-profit hospitals and financially distressed hospitals, indicating that hospitals are likely to use EMR as tool of boosting reimbursement. I also find that there is no evidence EMR leads to more procedures but it significantly increases the number of diagnosis codes that are recorded.

    "Optimal Research Subsidies, with an Application to Nuclear Power 1954-1973"

    Abstract:   Beyond changing the quantity of research performed, government R&D programs can also affect which research lines are studied. Why do  firms work on socially inefficient research lines, and how should a planner optimally change the direction of R&D, particularly when the planner has worse  information than the firms about the value and difficulty of various projects? A theoretical model suggests nine properties of optimal subsidy programs. Compared to these optimal decision making rules, the heuristic used in the Atomic Energy Commission nuclear reactor subsidy schemes contains a series of conceptual errors, largely due to the conflation of two separate reasons that firms work on inefficient basic research. Theory can also disentangle efficient path dependence from inefficient path dependence; the eventual dominance of light water reactors may have resulted from policy mistakes rather than unavoidable bad luck.

    "Public R&D Investments and Private Sector Patenting: Evidence from NIH Funding Rules" (with Pierre Azoulay, Josh Graff-Zivin, and Bhaven Sampat)
    Abstract: This paper measures the impact of public R&D investments on innovation by private sector firms. We quantify the returns to grant spending at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in terms of the biomedical patents it generates. Our paper makes two contributions. First, we use newly constructed bibliometric data to develop a method for flexibly measuring the outcomes of basic science investments. Second, we take advantage of the institutional features of NIH peer review to address concerns about the endogeneity of grant funding. Our results show that NIH funding generates more private patents than it crowds out. A $10 million increase in NIH support generates 2.8 additional patents; given an average grant award of $1.34 million, this means that we expect one additional patent private sector patent to be produced for every three additional NIH grants. We document, moreover, substantial cross-disease spillovers in funding for biomedical research; approximately half of all patents generated by NIH funding for one disease area are primarily relevant for a different disease.

    12:10PM - 1:10PM, Jacobs Center, Leverone 619

    Abstract:

    Demand-side informed choice behavior and supply-side gaming behavior after the report-card release have been presumed by previous studies, but they have not been identified separately. In this paper, I empirically examine both across-hospital and within-hospital patient sorting mechanisms induced by the cardiac surgery report cards in New Jersey. I find that patient severity of illness, traveling costs, admission sources, and provider capacity status affect patient sorting. Controlling for these factors, I show that patient informed choice, and provider gaming behavior separately affect patient sorting across hospitals after the report-card release. For within-hospital patient sorting, I find that admitted patients via cardiology departments are sorted better across cardiac surgeons than those via cardiac surgery departments within the same hospitals after the publication of the report cards.

    12:10PM - 1:10PM, Jacobs Center, Leverone 619

    Abstract:

    This paper studies the optimal level of discretion in policymaking. We consider a fiscal policy model where the government has time-inconsistent preferences with a present-bias towards public spending. The government chooses a fiscal rule to trade off its desire to commit to not overspend against its desire to have flexibility to react to privately observed shocks to the value of spending. We analyze the optimal fiscal rule when the shocks are persistent. Unlike under i.i.d. shocks, we show that the ex-ante optimal rule is not sequentially optimal, as it provides dynamic incentives. The ex-ante optimal rule exhibits history dependence, with high shocks leading to an erosion of future fiscal discipline compared to low shocks, which lead to the reinstatement of discipline. The implied policy distortions oscillate over time given a sequence of high shocks, and can force the government to accumulate maximal debt and become immiserated in the long run.

    "Public Health Insurance Spillovers" (Joint with Matthew Notowidigdo and Tal Gross)
    12:10PM - 1:10PM, Jacobs Center, Leverone 619

    Abstract:

    This paper studies the economic spillovers of public health insurance. To do so, it examines the end of Tennessee’s Medicaid expansion in 2005, the largest public health insurance disenrollment in the history of the United States. Approximately 170,000 Tennessee residents lost Medicaid coverage. Exploiting both across and within-state variation in the relative magnitude of the disenrollments, we find that the policy change caused an immediate increase in private health insurance coverage and extensive margin labor supply. This implies a strong preference for health insurance among those who lost Medicaid coverage. Additionally, we find that the disenrollment increased Tennessee hospitals’ uncompensated care by roughly 21 percent, with private, not-for-profit hospitals accounting for a majority of this increase. Between 46 and 66 percent of the budgetary savings from the disenrollment amounted to a transfer from private firms to the state government. These results demonstrate large spillovers from public health insurance and are useful in evaluating the likely consequences of reforms such as the Affordable Care Act.

    12:10PM - 1:10PM, Jacobs Center, Leverone 619

    Abstract: 

            We show that price expectations alter outcomes in a negotiated price environment. By
            experimentally manipulating the price expectations that consumers communicate to
            firms, we show that consumers' price expectations alter outcomes by directly changing
            firms' behavior. We implement a large-scale field experiment in which callers request
            price quotes from automotive repair shops. We find that repair shops quote higher
            prices if they know that callers' perception of the market price is high. We find that
            women are quoted higher prices than men when callers signal that they are uninformed
            about market prices. However, gender differences disappear when callers mention an
            expected price for the repair. Finally, we find that repair shops are more likely to offer
            a price concession if asked to do so by a woman than a man.

    12:10PM - 1:10PM, Jacobs Center, Leverone 619

    Abstract:

    We analyze the welfare consequences and the profitability of vertical integration when downstream firms deal with complementary input suppliers holding market power. We find that although single integration is anticompetitive, pairwise integration is often procompetitive and involves below cost pricing at the wholesale level. Moreover, we show that vertical integration is not necessarily profitable, since a complementary input provider extracts part of the greater profits earned by the integrated chain. Contrary to previous literature, this effect is particularly strong if the integrated firm is highly efficient. Finally, we analyze the role of information sharing within an integrated organization.

    Abstract:

            We examine a setting in which managers learn about the effectiveness of managerial practices by
            trial-and-error. We show that such a learning process generates persistent performance differ-
            ences across firms. If learning is centralized, persistent performance differences arise if firms have
            different initial conditions. And if learning is decentralized and managerial practices are com-
            plementary, persistent performance differences can arise even if firms are identical. Moreover, if
            managerial practices are complementary, performance differences can persist even if managers
            can imitate each other. Finally, we explore the implications of our model for the growth and
            development of nations.

    "Ain't it "Suite"? Bundling in the PC Office Software Market" (Joint with Neil Gandal and Michael Riordan)
    12:10 - 1:10pm, Jacobs Center Room 619


    Abstract: 
    We examine the importance of office suites for the evolution of the PC office software market in the 1990s. An estimated discrete demand choice model reveals strong positive correlation of consumer values for spreadsheets and word-processors, a bonus value for suites, and advantages for Microsoft products. We employ the estimates to simulate various ‘hypothetical’ market structures, in order to shed light on the welfare and competitive effects of suites under alternative correlation assumptions. We find that greater correlation enhances the profitability of bundling due to the interaction of a market expansion effect and a suite bonus effect. In a market setting of partial competition, in which Lotus sells only a spreadsheet and WordPerfect sells only a word processor, while Microsoft sells both components as well as a suite, we find that the introduction of the suite is pro-competitive (i.e., beneficial for consumers) on balance.

    12:10 - 1:10pm, Jacobs Center Room 619


    Abstract:

    We offer a general framework to study procurement scoring auctions when quality matters. In contrast to the existing studies in which only quasi-linear scoring rules are considered, our analysis allows a broad class of scoring rules. We find that first-score (FS) or second-score (SS) auctions can be transformed into equivalent, single-dimensional score-bid auctions where the bidder's ex post utility is non-linear in the score-bid. Our analysis demonstrates that the ranking of the two auction formats, in terms of expected scores, depends on the scoring rule and that the equivalence fails unless scoring rules are quasi-linear.

    Bingyang: "Effect of Overlapping Patient Population on Interoperability of Hospitals’ Electronic Medical 
                    Records (EMR) Systems
    "


        Abstract:

        This study examines how patient flow affects interoperability of hospitals’ inpatient Electronic Medical Records     
        (EMR) systems.  By tracking patient flow in local hospital markets, I find preliminary evidence that having more 
        shared patient population with potentially interoperable neighboring hospitals makes a new adopter more likely to 
        choose an EMR system that is interoperable with these neighbors.


    Yasin Ozcan: "Innovation through Acquisition"

        Abstract:
         
    Recent trends in technology markets suggest the emergence of open innovation models and a market for ideas
        through acquisition of startups by incumbents. In this study I analyze the linked patent and acquisition data to 
        shed a light on the transfer of innovation through acquisition mechanism, and discuss the incorporation of this 
        mechanism into existing models of innovation.
