      Lee, Inkoo; Park, Sang Soo; Zachariadis, Marios (2023-08)
      We consider multiple sources of non-linearity in good-level law-of-one-price deviations across the globe using a structural model that accounts for previously omitted variables and allows estimation of good-level convergence ...

      How different are Monetary Unions to national economies according to prices? 

      Glushenkova, Marina; Zachariadis, Marios (Wiley, 2022-09)
      Not that different. Based on a unique dataset of semi-annual microeconomic price levels of goods and services across and within countries for 1990:1–2018:2, we show that time-series volatility and cross-sectional dispersion ...

      Which banks smooth and at what price? 

      Kokas, Soterios; Vinogradov, Dmitri; Zachariadis, Marios (Elsevier, 2020-12)
      By adjusting lending, banks can smooth the macroeconomic impact of deposit fluctuations. This may, however, lead to extended periods of disproportionately high lending relative to deposit intake and, under certain conditions, ...

      Consumers’ updating and policy shocks: An empirical assessment of state dependencies 

      Geiger, Martin; Zachariadis, Marios (Cambridge University Press, 2022-12)
      We assess the impact of fiscal and monetary policy shocks on US survey-based consumer expectations within states of low and high public debt. Following an unexpected increase in government spending, consumption intentions ...

      Measuring the Welfare Costs of Racial Discrimination in the Labor Market 

      Gramozi, Almarina; Palivos, Theodore; Zachariadis, Marios (2023-04)
      We find that the conditional wage-gap for non-whites is negatively related to gross domestic product per worker across the US. To explain this, we develop a model linking unequal access to employment with the wage gap, ...

      Eminidou, Snezana; Zachariadis, Marios (Elsevier, 2022-04)

      Kourtellos, Andros; Petrou, Kyriakos (2023-08-29)
      This paper provides novel evidence of nonlinearities in the formation of preferences for redistribution by uncovering evidence of multiple regimes consistent with the presence of multiple equilibria and multiple steady ...

      Eminidou, Snezana; Zachariadis, Marios; Andreou, Elena (Wiley, 2020-01)

      Structural breaks tests robust to regression misspecification 

      Alaa, Α.Μ.; Andreou, Elena; Boldea, O. (2018)
      Structural break tests for regression models are sensitive to model misspecification. We show—analytically and through simulations—that the sup Wald test for breaks in the conditional mean and variance of a time series ...

      Inference in Group Factor Models With an Application to Mixed-Frequency Data 

      Andreou, Elena; Gagliardini, P.; Ghysels, E.; Rubin, M. (2019)
      We derive asymptotic properties of estimators and test statistics to determine—in a grouped data setting—common versus group-specific factors. Despite the fact that our test statistic for the number of common factors, under ...

      Noisy Introspection in the 11–20 Game 

      Goeree, Jacob K.; Louis, Philippos; Zhang, Jingjing (2018)
      Previous experiments based on the 11–20 game have produced evidence for the level-k model with observed levels of strategic thinking consistently ranging from 0 to 3. Our baseline treatment uses the 11–20 game and replicates ...

      The effect of entry on R&D networks 

      Petrakis, Emmanuel; Tsakas, Nikolas (2018)
      We investigate the effect of potential entry on the formation and stability of R&D networks considering farsighted firms. The presence of a potential entrant often alters the incentives of incumbents to collaborate. Incumbent ...

      On Decay Centrality 

      Tsakas, Nikolas (2018)
      We establish a relationship between decay centrality and two widely used measures of centrality, namely degree and closeness. We show that for low values of the decay parameter the nodes with maximum decay centrality also ...
