  • 2002-05 :: A multidimensional approach to the measurement of poverty
    by Michele Costa & 2002-12

    By using fuzzy set theory a cross country multidimensional analysis of poverty is performed on the basis of ECHP data. A set of composite indicators is contructed in order to analyse different dimensions of poverty. For each indicator is calculated an unidimensional poverty ratio, thus allowing a comparison among countries and indicators on the dimensions of poverty. Finally, for each country a...

  • 2002-04 :: Returns to education and experience in self-employment: Evidence from Germany
    by Donald R. Williams & 2002-12

    This paper compares the returns to human capital in the self-employed and wage-employed sectors of the economy.

Two key results are found. Firs...

  • 2002-01 :: Do Preferences in EU Member-States Support Fiscal Federalism?
    by Elisabetta Croci Angelini & Conchita D'Ambrosio & Francesco Farina & 2002-05

    The aim of this paper is to assess preferences with respect to fiscal federalism in EU member-states. In particular, we address the question of whether each EU country would - if the decision were taken by 'majority voting' - or should – if the decision were takenby a social planner – favour centralisation or decentralisation of mutual risk insurance. Our analysis implicitly assumes that each EU m...
