LEEP Seminar Series - Professor Ben Zissimos - Contesting an International Trade Agreement

ABSTRACT: We develop a new theoretical political economy framework, called a ‘parallel contest’, that emphasizes the political fight over trade agreement (TA) ratification within countries. TA ratification is inherently uncertain in each country, where anti- and pro-trade interest groups contest each other to influence their own governments’ ratification decision. Unlike prior literature, the protection embodied in negotiated TA tariffs reflects a balance between the liberalizing force of lobbying and inherently protectionist government preferences. Moreover, new international political externalities emerge that are not internalized by governments that just internalize terms of trade externalities. Full details

Professor Michael Burton - Model invariance when estimating random parameters with categorical variables

This research shows that econometric models that include categorical variables are not invariant to choice of ‘base’ category when random parameters are estimated, unless they are allowed to be correlated. We show that the lack of invariance can lead to significant increases in Type I errors, and a misrepresentation of the preferences of respondents. We hypothesis that these biases may influence the economic policy implications of published models that contain this error, which we show in two empirical applications. However, it is impossible to identify the degree of the error in the many published papers we identify that contain this effect, without re-estimating the models correctly.. Full details

Dr Ganga Shreedhar - How do the narratives in biodiversity conservation videos influence pro-environmental behaviour and emotions?

We explored how different types of audio-visual media narratives impacted charitable donations, using a lab experiment. Subjects chose to donate to a charity in a modified dictator game, after being randomly assigned to watch videos featuring either; a non-charismatic species (Bats); a charismatic species (Lions); a composite habitat composed of both species (Bats and Lions in the Savanna); with and without additional content on the anthropogenic cause of endangerment. In addition to this, a subset of subjects was offered public recognition alongside videos. We found media narrative content influences prosocial behaviour on both the intensive and extensive margins of giving; videos with charismatic Lions increased the probability of donating (intensive margin of giving), but content about human cause of endangerment, increased the amount donated, conditional on having decided to donate (extensive margin of giving). There is heterogeneity in treatment effects based on past pro-social behaviour; public recognition increases donations only for those reporting donating to charities in the past. We also find that changing narratives affected stated emotions and influenced subsequent (non-target) environmental behaviours.. Full details

The Breakthrough Mindset: Can business solve the world's biggest problems?

The University of Exeter Business School is very pleased to be joined by Innovate UK and Volans for an evening discussing breakthrough innovation and the future of our cities. Please join us for wine, snacks - and with your help - good conversation. Context We live in what New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman calls ‘the age of accelerations.’ Technological progress, climate change and the interconnectedness of the global economy are all developing along exponential trajectories, he argues. These can be deeply uncertain and discomforting times for business and society. Yet, they also offer huge opportunity for businesses looking to harness the accelerating pace of technology - often referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution - to create solutions. Al Gore’s investment firm, Generation Investment Management, claims we are entering what they call The Sustainability Revolution. Sustainability, they argue, is now fundamental to growth. “Based on our analysis, there are clear indicators we are in the early stages of a global “Sustainability Revolution” that has the magnitude of the Industrial Revolution and the speed of the Digital Revolution. Empowered by new digital tools, including the internet of things and machine learning, this Sustainability Revolution is giving many businesses the ability to manipulate electrons, atoms and molecules with the same precision used by computer and networking firms to manipulate bits of information.”.

The project aimed to quantify the health and wellbeing value of the East Devon Pebblebed Heaths and explore the potential of partnerships with private sector organisations, to increase the associated benefits. It included an assessment of the economic value of this site, using visitor data and economic valuation tools including travel cost, ORVal, the WHO's Health Economic Assessment Tool (HEAT) and the MOVES tool; it also involved conducting interviews and a workshop with stakeholders. The project blog can be found at: https://carolynpetersen616789341.wordpress.com/ Carolyn’s talk and discussion of her work will be held 11.30am-12.30pm, after which there will be a short break, followed by an informal discussion of themes arising from Carolyn’s work, lasting up to an hour, for those who wish to engage in a wider debate..

The Future of Bitcoin (Cash)

Blockchain applications continue to make headlines as the biggest revolution since the internet. But many observers seem sceptical about what they can bring to the world, and don’t know how the blockchain really works. How does it work? What is the difference between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash? To what extent can Bitcoin replace fiat currencies and other centralised systems? Could there be just one form of global money? What implications does this have for the way governments manage macroeconomic stability? What impact could this have on people in underdeveloped countries?. Full details

MBA Speaker Series: Ben Combes

Scientists have identified that four of the nine Earth processes and systems - climate change, loss of biosphere integrity, land-system change and altered cycles in the globe's chemistry - have now crossed "boundary levels". While these challenges are urgent and unprecedented, they coincide with an era of unparalleled innovation and technological change - the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). Talking through research, insights and interviews on his work at PwC and in collaboration with the World Economic Forum, Ben will explore the relevance to business and the challenges and opportunities this will bring, how markets will develop and how consumer preferences might evolve. He will also set out how the 4IR and, in particular, Artificial Intelligence (AI) can help solve environmental challenges, from climate change to biodiversity. Full details

CRPR-LEEP Seminar: Fire, tractors and health in the Amazon by Thiago Morello

Fire, tractors and health in the Amazon: a stated preference-based cost-benefit analysis of externality policy. Every year residents of the urban area of Rio Branco, a western Amazon town with 330,000 inhabitants, have their respiratory health threatened by smoke from fires set to prepare land for agriculture. This remains true even with remarkable policy efforts to diffuse fire-free agriculture, monitor fire use and fine non-authorized burnings. The current fire policy is evaluated with a cost-benefit analysis fully based in stated-preference valuation. Potential externality generators (smallholders) and potential victims (urban dwellers) were surveyed with, respectively, discrete choice experiment and contingent valuation methods. An efficiency metric that convoys variance of individual values is proposed and compared to traditional average-based aggregation. Physical impact of pollution in health was estimated with sub-municipal level GIS data for traditional aggregation.. Full details

LEEP Seminar: Eliciting values for complex goods: community preferences for the marine environment

Managers and the general public may have different preferences for marine management. This implies that expert-driven planning approaches may not attract the necessary public support to achieve biodiversity objectives. To understand public preferences for management, we elicited spatially explicit non-market values for marine ecological features in South-East Queensland in Australia. Our survey revealed that the Queensland population has higher existence values for different habitat types; for example, sea grass areas were valued twice as much as inshore reef areas. Full details

Annual Accounts: the Law and the Practice. An unsatisfactory mess for the responsible directors

The thrust of this talk will be that the extraordinary development in the length, complexity and sophistication of accounting standards in the last 25 years has made it very difficult for directors to discharge their responsibility (a responsibility which applies to every company in the land – big or small) to produce annual accounts which give a true and fair view. Erudite accounting theory promoted by the standard-setters prevails: the business common sense of the ordinary director is ousted. Many sections of accounts are incomprehensible to the non-specialist and listed companies produce separate figures, alongside the standard-compliant results, to adjust what they describe as "distortions"! The talk will propose reforms. Full details

The public corporation is one of the pillars of modern capitalist economies. With many of the rights and privileges of individuals, we rely upon the corporation to produce goods and services, income and employment opportunities, and to invest in the future. And yet, its critics are damning: Naomi Klein and Joel Bakan accuse the modern corporation of being a malign ‘being’, even pathological in its pursuit of profit, and the enemy of environmental sustainability.
