7th Session

We continue with the 7th BBS session!

It is our pleasure the introduction of Jorge Velilla, José Alberto Molina, and José Ignacio Giménez-Nadal, who will present the paper titled: Collective models: A limited intertemporal commitment model of labor supply.

In this paper, authors develop a collective model of labor supply with limited intertemporal commitment. They find a set of testable conditions for the validity of the model, and an estimated function of intra-household resource allocations. They use the Panel Study of Income Dynamics from years 1997 to 2015 to estimate the model. Results do not reject the validity of the model. They also find that the ability of spouses to negotiate intra-household allocations appears to be mainly driven by wages, with wives behaving altruistically, and husbands egoistically.

The session will be held at the School of Economics and Business, Sala de Reuniones de la Magna - Edificio Paraíso -, Zaragoza, next Wednesday 23rd of January at 13h30.

Really Interesting Sixth Session

We are pleased to thank Elisabet Garrido for her interesting presentation about how the international experience of challengers in countries where demand and technological windows are opened can help them to catch-up with the market leader in a focal country where such windows exist. Their results based on a sample of mobile telecommunication service suggest that both demand and technological windows represent an opportunity for a challenger to reduce their market share gap with the market leader.

We would also like to thank all the attendees for coming and for their valuable and helpful comments and suggestions after the presentation.

Looking forward to seeing you all in the next meeting!

Sixth Session

The sixth BBS meeting is coming soon!

We have the pleasure of introducing Elisabet Garrido, Claudio Giachetti and Juan P. Maícas, and their paper titled: Challenging the leader in the presence of market changes: the role of international experience.

This paper contributes to prior literature on windows of opportunity and changes in industrial leadership by examining how the international experience of challengers in countries where demand and technological windows are opened can help them to catch-up with the market leader in a focal country where such windows exist. Results based on a sample of mobile telecommunication service providers operating in 125 countries from 2000 to 2015 suggest that both demand and technological windows represent an opportunity for a challenger to reduce its the market share gap with the market leader. Whereas the international experience of a challenger in markets with demand windows helps it to exploit this window of opportunity, our results also reveal that a challenger’s international experience in facing technological windows does not ease its attempt to catch up with the leader.

The session will be held at the School of Economics and Business, Sala de Reuniones de la Magna - Edificio Paraíso -, Zaragoza, next Wednesday 9th of January at 13h30.

Fifth Session

Continuing our interesting presentations, we have the pleasure of introducing Luis Vicente Casaló, Daniel Belanche, and Mahmud Hassan, and their paper titled: The relevance of empathy on Facebook brand communities.

Members empathize others within brand communities, which is essential for the survival of the community and may influence consumer behavior. In this work in progress, authors aim to confirm that empathy behaviors are prevalent within brand communities. They propose a research framework with the following objectives: (1) to identify different causes (e.g. brand-related and personal related issues) that motivate empathy within these communities, (2) to investigate the consequences of perceived empathy for both the brand community (satisfaction and participation) and the brand (brand loyalty), and (3) to evaluate to what extent these consequences for the community and the brand depend on the different causes of empathic behaviors. To this end, authors will focus on Facebook brand communities, and will follow a netnographic approach first and develop a subsequent experimental design.

The session will be held at the School of Economics and Business, Sala de Reuniones de la Magna - Edificio Paraíso -, Zaragoza, next Wednesday 12th of December at 13h30.

Great Fourth Session


We are pleased to thank Vicente Pinilla for his interesting presentation on whether there was a single Latin American pattern of agricultural growth between 1950 and 2008.

He talks about that the differences among these countries are too strong to establish a single pattern for this region. Despite this, there were certain common trends, such as the growing importance of labour productivity in the explanation of agricultural production growth, and the increasing importance of TFP in the explanation of agricultural labour productivity growth.

We also want to thank all the attendees for their comments and suggestions after the presentation. Thank you all for coming!


We hope to see you all in the next seminar!

Fourth Session

We go on the BBS sessions!

We have the pleasure of introducing Vicente Pinilla, Miguel Martín, Jackeline Velazco, and Henry Willebald, and their paper titled: Is there a Latin American agricultural growth pattern? Factor endowments and productivity in the second half of the twentieth century

In this paper the authors discuss if there was a single Latin American pattern of agricultural growth between 1950 and 2008. They evaluate the sources of growth of agricultural production and productivity in ten Latin American countries. Their results show that the differences among these countries are too strong to establish a single pattern for this region. Despite this, there were certain common trends, such as the growing importance of labour productivity in the explanation of agricultural production growth, and the increasing importance of TFP in the explanation of agricultural labour productivity growth.

The session will be held at the School of Economics and Business, Sala de Reuniones de la Magna - Edificio Paraíso -, Zaragoza, next Wednesday 28th of November at 13h30.
