      Asymmetric Tax Policy Responses in Large Economies With Cross-Border Pollution 

      Tsakiris, Nikos; Michael, Michael S.; Hatzipanayotou, Panos (2014)
      We build a model of cross-border pollution between two large open economies, one importing the polluting good and the other exporting it, and derive their non-cooperative trade and environmental tax policies. We show among ...

      Congestion control in wireless sensor networks based on bird flocking behavior 

      Antoniou, Pavlos Ch.; Pitsillides, Andreas; Blackwell, T.; Engelbrecht, A.; Michael, Loizos (2013)
      This paper proposes that the flocking behavior of birds can guide the design of a robust, scalable and self-adaptive congestion control protocol in the context of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). The proposed approach ...

      Divide and rule: redistribution in a model with differentiated candidates 

      Matakos, Konstantinos; Xefteris, Dimitrios (2017)
      We study an electoral competition model in which each voter is characterized by income level and non-economic characteristics, and where two vote share maximizing candidates, with fixed non-economic characteristics ...

      The effect of standards and fuel prices on automobile fuel economy: An international analysis 

      Clerides, Sofronis; Zachariadis, Theodoros (2008)
      There is an intense debate over whether fuel economy standards or fuel taxation is the more efficient policy instrument to raise fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions of cars. The aim of this paper is to analyze the impact ...

      Mimicking the bird flocking behavior for controlling congestion in sensor networks 

      Antoniou, Pavlos Ch.; Pitsillides, Andreas; Engelbrecht, A.; Blackwell, T. (2010)
      This study deals with the problem of congestion in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and proposes a robust and self-adaptable nature-inspired congestion control approach for realtime event-based applications. WSNs face ...

      Multiple regimes and preferences for redistribution 

      Kourtellos, Andros; Petrou, Kyriakos (2016)
      This paper investigates the presence of multiple regimes in the preferences of redistribution, which is a key feature of a welfare state. The size of the redistributive government depends on the demand for redistribution, ...

      Trade-offs in CO2-oriented vehicle tax reforms: A case study of Greece 

      Adamou, Adamos; Clerides, Sofronis; Zachariadis, Theodoros (2012)
      We estimate demand for automobiles in Greece using a model of product differentiation and use the model to evaluate carbon-based tax schemes that could shift consumer purchases towards low CO2 emission cars. We find that ...
