Presentation:





Tax Holidays and Foreign Investment




Jointly with DE Seminars





Presenter:

Nova School of Business and Economics


Abstract


Under tax holidays, foreign firms are taxed at rates that are lower than the usual, in the belief that these temporary benefits may entice these firms to remain in the country. We evaluate the impact of terminating or reducing these tax benefits upon the exit decision by U.S. firms that were established in Puerto Rico. Our results indicate that whenever benefits are reduced or terminated the probability of exit increases in a non-trivial manner.

  



MONDAY, OCTOBER 22nd




Presentation:





Wealth-to-Income Ratio, Housing Returns and Systematic Risk


Presenter:




Ricardo Sousa




University of Minho and

London School of Economics and Political Sciences






Abstract


We show that the residuals of the trend relationship among asset wealth and labour income predict housing returns. In particular: (i) when housing asset are complements of financial assets, investors demand a higher housing risk premium if they are hit by a shock that generates a fall in the wealth-to-income ratio; (ii) when housing assets are substitutes of financial assets, investors demand a lower housing return if they face a fall in the wealth-to-income ratio. Finally, we show that the transmission of wealth shocks to housing markets is amplified at periods of systemic crises.
