INSIDE Project (Insights on Immigration and Development)
http://www.inside.org.es/
INSIDE is an independent, non-partisan initiative launched by the Institute for Economic Analysis (IAE, CSIC). We aim at mobilizing and coordinating the research community contributing to the understanding of the causes and consequences of migrations. Special emphasis is also placed on the study of key aspects of economic development and growth of poor countries.

Our mission is to promote research and coordinate the efforts from researchers belonging to different institutions in view to contribute to the public debate on immigration and development issues.

Our interests include macro and microeconomic research, theory and empirics. We are committed to high standards of research.

We work on theoretical and experimental microeconomics, with emphasis on industrial organization and organizational economics. Specific issues we cover are: crowdfunding, the regulation of the telecom industry, markets for search and experience goods, market phenomena linked to internet trade, the internal organization of the firm, sperformance effects of profit sharing and coalitional bargaining.

"Social and political conflict"
2017 SGR 1359 , Generalitat de Catalunya
2017-2020
Ada Ferrer , Enriqueta Aragonès, Flip Klijn, Ana Rute Pedro Cardoso, Joan M, Esteban, Laura Mayoral, Hannes Mueller

We study social and political conflict issues focusing on: (i) how economic and political conditions, and ethnic composition may precipitate conflict; (ii) the role of economic inequality as a source of conflict; (iii) study economic inequality with a focus on labor market institutions; (iv) consequences of inequality for individuals' behavior and attitudes; (v) migration; and (vi) the behavior of participants in electoral processes and other markets to understand how conflict evolves and the institutions that promote the development of democracy and good functioning of the market. The research is based on theory and empirics, using cutting-edge statistical analysis.

"Theoretical and applied macroeconomics: inequality, partial information and expectations"
2017 SGR 1571 , Generalitat de Catalunya
2017-2020
Albert Marcet , Hugo Rodríguez, Esther Hauk, Joachim Jungherr, Xavier Ramos, Sara Ayllón, Pau Milán, Luis Rojas, Raúl Santaeulalia

Our group Works on the following areas:
1. Expectations: the literature assumes that investors know how prices are formed. We assume limited knowledge and study stock and bond price fluctuations and policy. 2. Debt frictions and Financial Intermediation: we study if banks should be rescued and the issuance of government and bank debt. 3. Optimal Policy: we develop a framework to study policy when the government has imperfect information about the economy, an issue usually ignored, applied to fiscal, monetary and debt policy. 4.Labor Income: we study the implication of countercyclical labor shares for labor market dynamics and human capital misallocations. We study efficiency in occupational choice with endogenous spillovers due to socializing and on the job learning. 5.inequality: we design indeces of social integration and inequality of opportunity and indeces that capture individual well-being. We study inequality reducing policies including redistribution, conditional cash transfer programs and education policies.
