By Kenneth Train, Melvyn Weeks (auth.), Riccardo Scarpa, Anna Alberini (eds.)

Simulation equipment are revolutionizing the perform of utilized financial research. This quantity collects eighteen chapters written by way of prime researchers from prestigious learn associations internationally. the typical denominator of the papers is their relevance for utilized examine in environmental and source economics.

The themes variety from discrete selection modeling with heterogeneity of personal tastes, to Bayesian estimation, to Monte Carlo experiments, to structural estimation of Kuhn-Tucker call for platforms, to overview of simulation noise in greatest simulated probability estimates, to dynamic average source modeling. Empirical instances are used to teach the sensible use and the implications introduced forth by way of the various methods.

They also discuss the difficulty of distinguishing whether microeconomic data are generated by static or dynamic behaviour even with maintained structural assumptions about the form of the intra-period utility or profit function. We find their contribution to present an important pedagogical perspective. 5. Monte Carlo experiments Chapters 13 and 12 are dedicated to one of the major work-horses of SMs: context-specific Monte Carlo experiments devised to explore the finite sample properties of estimators for which econometric theory provides the researcher only with asymptotic results.

Terminology In an ideal world there would be a one-to-one mapping between terms and concepts. Initially we intended to standardize the terminology throughout the book in as much as possible. Although we tried, we now feel we did not go very far with it. As a result, for example, many acronyms of models across chapters may refer to different econometrics specifications. While an apology in this sense is due to the reader, we feel that the diversity of terms in this book reflects that in the current literature.

1) Attribute Op. 0000 (in the sense that the researcher does not specify it directly) of the estimated means and variances of the coefficients themselves. 3. To conserve space, the correlation matrix does not contain the body types. As the table indicates, correlations among WTP’s are fairly large; researchers assuming uncorrelated coefficients might not be aware that they are implicitly assuming fairly large correlations among WTP’s. 4), where the coefficient of each non-price attribute is the product of the WTP for that attribute times the price coefficient.
