We rely on administrative tax records containing detailed information on all sources of taxable income for the full population of households and use measures of income and income inequality corresponding to those reported in official statistics as benchmarks. Note that the income data used in official statistics do also form the basis of international research that employ income data. Simialr as Alstadsaelig;ter, Kopczuk, Jacob, and Telle (2016), we overcome measurement problems related to official measures of business income by combining several sources of administrative register data: Using information on the number of shares held by each owner of all Norwegian limited liability firms, we link administrative tax records with firm level annual accounts and balance sheet data, and develop a measure of business income that is neither subject to strategic realization decisions nor to double counting of income from indirectly held firms. Improving the measurement of business income leads to a substantial increase in income inequality estimates as compared to what is reported by conventional official statistics. For instance, the share of income attributable to the top 1% of the population more than doubles and the Gini coefficient estimates increase by about 25%.

Del Gatto and M.C Parameter) http://www.dse.univr.it/?ent=seminario&rss=0&lang=it&id=4926 Relatore: Michele Battisti; Provenienza: University of Palermo; Data inizio: 2020-03-25; Ora inizio: 12.00; Note orario: Polo Santa Marta, Via Cantarane 24, Sala Vaona; Referente interno: Tamara Fioroni; Riassunto: We present a nonparametric framework to estimate marginal productivity (MP) and skill biased technical change (SBTC) directly from the production function while simultaneously allowing for the presence of labor market imperfections. We use this framework to show that SBTC can bring about a less efficient use of labor as long as it does not come with higher skill premia and/or adjustment in the hired quantities of skilled and unskilled labor. Indeed, using country-sector information (38 countries, 25 sectors, 1995-2005), we find most of the average growth rate in the marginal rate of technical substitution (MRTS) between skilled and unskilled labor (32.3%) is driven by SBTC (36.1%), rather than factor accumulation (-3.9%), and the discrepancy between MRTS and relative wages (i.e., economic inefficiency) grows by 6%. Adjustment of labor quantities to relative wages would bring about output gains ranging from 13% to 18%; adjustment of wages to MPs would increase wage inequality from 0.76 to 0.82 (Gini index). Economic inefficiency is found to grow less in less skill-intensive sectors and when the labor market institutions are such that skilled workers have a relatively higher bargaining power and job reallocation is easier. Moreover, it decreases more in more inefficient country-sectors (i.e., convergence).

Although strategic sophistication has been shown to be linked to a variety of endogenous and exogenous factors, little is known about how it is shaped by experience with previous interactive decisions. Whereas we show that payoff feedback in previous games can importantly influence strategic sophistication, we also show that games that provide theoretically equivalent learning opportunities can produce substantially different learning outcomes. Specifically, only feedback associated with repeated play of games that emphasize strategic interdependence (i.e., those in which the participants do not have a dominant strategy) enhances strategic learning, as demonstrated by the observed increased frequency of equilibrium play and the evolved way of collectingndash;and then processingndash;payoff information. Moreover, subgroups of individuals respond to experience in remarkably different ways. Whereas some players eventually learn to visually analyze the payoff matrix compatibly with an underlying equilibrium reasoning, others appear to use experience with previous interactions to devise simple heuristics of play. Our results have implications for theoretical and computational modeling in economics and Artificial Intelligence research.
