The Duhem-Quine thesis and experimental economics A reinterpretation

Morten Søberg

Abstract:

The Duhem-Quine thesis asserts that any empirical evaluation of a theory is in fact a composite test of several interconnected hypotheses. Recalcitrant evidence signals falsity within the conjunction of hypotheses, but logic alone cannot pinpoint the individual element(s) inside the theoretical cluster responsible for a false prediction. This paper…

Abstract

Divide and Recombine (D&R) is an approach to the analysis of large complex data. The data are parallelized: divided into subsets in one or more ways by the data analyst. Numeric and visualization methods are applied to each of the subsets separately. Then the results of each method are recombined across subsets. By introducing…

& it contains a beautiful & succint description of how the ECB uses the PCA technique in this space.

I have placed the summary file on a url on my website (for…

From Posteriors to Priors via Cycles: An Addendum

Martin F. Hellwig

Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods

April 21, 2011

Abstract

Rodrigues-Neto (2009) has shown that a given specification of posteriors of different players in an incomplete-information setting is compatible with a common prior if and only if the posteriors satisfy the so-called cycle equations. This note shows that, if, for any player, any…

I remember my Professor giving me a photocopy of this [1st reference below] (cf also what is known as K&P '1982'] & I went and sat down in an empty 'Adam Smith' library and read it; it was hot and sunny outside & I did not make sense of one single word, there was alot of that going on that year (1985) but I read it again & made notes in pencil on a pad of accounting paper I remember (vividly); then I went to the park (Glasgow is full of Victorian Parks, its nickname…

Abstract

We investigate the impact of parameter uncertainty on the performance of bond portfolios. We assume that the data generating process is represented by the well-established three-factor essentially ane Gaussian term structure model. We estimate this model and three simpler models to US data using the

Markov Chain Monte Carlo method which provides a posterior distribution of parameters given the…

CORRELATION AND CONTAGION IN EMPIRICAL FACTOR MODELS OF BANK CREDIT RISK

Michael Beenstock Department of Economics Hebrew University of Jerusalem

January 3, 2012

Abstract

Credit risk may be correlated because the observed and unobserved drivers of credit risk happen to be correlated, or because they are related through contagion. We identify contagion by assuming that contagion takes time. Bank…
