      We quantify the sensitivity of the Eisenberg-Noe clearing vector to estimation errors in the bilateral liabilities of a financial system. The interbank liabilities matrix is a crucial input to the computation of the clearing ...
    • Exchange Rates, Interest Rates and the Global Carry Trade 

      Evans, Martin D.D.; Rime, Dagfinn (Working Papers;14/2017, Working paper, 2017)
      We empirically examine how the global carry trade affects the dynamics of spot exchange rates and interest rates across 13 countries from 2000, through the world financial crisis, until the end of 2011. Our model identifies ...
    • Supply Flexibility in the Shale Patch: Evidence from North Dakota 

      Bjørnland, Hilde C.; Nordvik, Frode Martin; Rohrer, Maximilian (Working Papers;9/2017, Working paper, 2017)
      We analyse if supply exibility in oil production depends on the extraction technology. In particular, we ask to what extent shale oil producers respond to price incentives by changing completion of new wells as well as oil ...
    • Comparing Behavioural Heterogeneity Across Asset Classes 

      Hommes, Cars H.; Zwinkels, Remco C.J.; ter Ellen, Saskia (Working Papers;12/2017, Working paper, 2017)
      We estimate a generic agent-based model in which agents have heterogeneous beliefs about the future price to see to what extent behaviour differs across assets, and what this implies for market stability. We find evidence ...
    • Se, les og opplev: Et studie av barns lesereaksjoner 

      Lindbom, Ingrid Julie Sanner (Master thesis, 2017-09-15)
      I løpet av de siste ti årene har det pågått en digitalisering av barnelitteratur. I dag kan barnebøker leses på blant annet nettbrett og noen bøker har til og med blitt utviklet til spill. Flere (Prytz, 2013; Ørjasæter, ...
    • Conditional Forecasting with DSGE Models - a Conditional Copula Approach 

      Paulsen, Kenneth Sæterhagen (Working Papers;4/2017, Working paper, 2017)
      DSGE models may be misspecified in many dimensions, which can affect their forecasting performance. To correct for these misspecifications we can apply conditional information from other models or judgment. Conditional ...
    • Forward Guidance Through Interest Rate Projections: Does It Work? 

      Brubakk, Leif; Xu, Hong; ter Ellen, Saskia (Working Papers;6/2017, Working paper, 2017)
      Based on high-frequency data for Norway and Sweden, we investigate to what extent explicit forward guidance from monetary policy makers, by means of publishing the path of expected future policy rates, affects the market ...
