And Then He Wasn’t a She: Climate Change and Green Transitions in an Agent-Based Integrated Assessment Model

In this work, we employ an agent-based integrated assessment model to study the likelihood of transition to green, sustainable growth in presence of climate damages. The model comprises heterogeneous fossil-fuel and renewable plants, capital- and consumption-good firms and a climate box linking greenhouse gasses emission to temperature dynamics and microeconomic climate shocks affecting labour productivity […]

Distributed Energy Storage Systems: Effects on Load Volatility

The diffusion of distributed energy producing systems relying on renewable sources poses a challenge to policy-makers, grid operators, and power generating companies in the electricity industry. One such case may be the diffusion of distributed storage systems integrated with photovoltaic units owned by households. On the one hand, they may act as a buffer and […]

Faraway, so Close: Coupled Climate and Economic Dynamics in an Agent-Based Integrated Assessment Model

In this paper we develop the first agent-based integrated assessment model, which offers an alternative to standard, computable general-equilibrium frameworks. The Dystopian Schumpeter meeting Keynes (DSK) model is composed of heterogeneous firms belonging to capital-good, consumption-good and energy sectors. Production and energy generation lead to greenhouse gas emissions, which affect temperature dynamics in a non-linear […]

How do financial markets adapt? An institutional comparison between European and Japanese Junior stock markets

Since the last decade, new Junior stock markets or second-tier stock markets have emerged in various countries, often influenced by the Alternative Investment Market, created by the London Stock Echange in 1995, and considered by numerous economic and political actors as a reference. Junior Markets are characterised by simplified listing processes and customised information standards. […]

Firm Growth and Stock Market Regulation in Different Financial Systems

This article aims at testing whether firm growth processes differ across countries characterized by different financial systems and varieties of capitalism, as well as across stock market segments with different listing requirements and information standards. We estimate Gibrat regressions of firm growth through dynamic panel methods on datasets of manufacturing firms listed on the stock […]

Gazelles and muppets in the City: Stock market listing, risk sharing, and firm growth quantiles

Financialization is persuading academics and policy-makers that the growth of SMEs can be unleashed by promoting their quotation on stock markets. Is that true? Answering this can give clues on the functions that stock markets actually perform in the financialized world. The market may allow collecting finance for productive investments, or mainly provide firms with […]

The Creation Function of a Junior Listing Venue: An Empirical Test on the Alternative Investment Market

Stock markets perform a creation function if the inflow of financial capital in the birth of new privately-held firms is stimulated by the promise of stock market liquidity at a later point in time. Junior stock market segments, characterized by lighter listing procedures and costs, may be suited to perform a creation function, but their […]
