Entry and exit, product variety and the business cycle by Satyajit Chatterjee( Book )
12 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 79 libraries worldwide
Abstract: We study the stochastic behavior of a dynamic general equilibrium model with monopolistic competition. Each seller sells his product in the consumption goods as well as the investment goods market and has market power in both. Consumers derive utility from a CES aggregate of all the consumption goods and augment their capital stock by a CES aggregate of all the investment goods. We analyze the equilibrium of this economy allowing for an endogenous determination of the number of firms and therefore of products. The principal effect we highlight is the endogenous propagation and magnification of technology and preference disturbances through product space variations
Spin-offs and the market for ideas by Satyajit Chatterjee( file )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 50 libraries worldwide
We propose a theory of firm dynamics in which workers have ideas for new projects that can be sold in a market to existing firms or implemented in new firms: spin-offs. Workers have private information about the quality of their ideas. Because of an adverse selection problem, workers can sell their ideas to existing firms only at a price that is not contingent on their information. We show that the option to spin off in the future is valuable so only workers with very good ideas decide to spin off and set up a new firm. Since entrepreneurs of existing firms pay a price for the ideas sold in the market that implies zero expected profits for them, firms' project selection is independent of their size, which, under some assumptions, leads to scale-independent growth. The entry and growth process of firms in this economy leads to an invariant distribution that resembles the one in the US economy
Participation dynamics : sunspots and cycles by Satyajit Chatterjee( Book )
7 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in English and held by 43 libraries worldwide
This paper investigates the possibility of sunspots equilibria and endogenous cycles in an overlapping generations model with strategic interactions. We consider an economy with imperfectly competitive product markets. There is a participation decision on the part of prospective firms and a strategic complementarity emerges from the interaction of firms in their entry decisions both over time and across sectors. When these complementarities are sufficiently strong, multiple steady state equilibria will exist. Sunspot equilibria can then be constructed as randomizations in the neighborhood of these steady states. We relate the properties of our sunspot equilibria to aggregate fluctuations, with particular emphasis on the dynamics of entry and exit. We also show that if intratemporal strategic interactions are sufficiently strong, then cycles may exist. Additional sunspot equilibria can be found in the neighborhood of these cycles. Finally, we show that if inter temporal linkages are sufficiently strong, cycles will not exist
A quantitative theory of unsecured consumer credit with risk of default by Satyajit Chatterjee( Book )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
The authors study, theoretically and quantitatively, the general equilibrium of an economy in which households smooth consumption by means of both a riskless asset and unsecured loans with the option to default. The default option resembles a bankruptcy filing under Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Competitive financial intermediaries offer a menu of loan sizes and interest rates wherein each loan makes zero profits. They prove the existence of a steady state equilibrium and characterize the circumstances under which a household defaults on its loans. They show that their model accounts for the main statistics regarding bankruptcy and unsecured credit while matching key macroeconomic aggregates and the earnings and wealth distributions. They use this model to address the implications of a recent policy change that introduces a form of means-testing for households contemplating a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing. They find that this policy change yields large welfare gains

Knowledge spillovers and the new economy of cities by Gerald A Carlino( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Despite much theorizing about the role of geographic concentration of employment in enhancing knowledge spillovers, local densities' role in promoting innovations has been largely unexamined. This paper considers the role of knowledge spillovers on innovations at the MSA level. The authors use patents per capita in an MSA as their measure of innovations in that MSA. They find that the rate of patenting is positively related to the employment density of the highly urbanized portion of an MSA (its urbanized area). Specifically, the authors find, on average, that rate of patenting is 20 percent to 30 percent greater in an MSA with a local economy that is twice as dense as the local economy of another MSA. Since local employment density doubles more than four times in the sample, the implied gains in patents per capita due to urban density are substantial. Thus, these findings confirm the widely held view that the nation's densest locations play an important role in creating the flow of ideas that generates innovation and growth
Employment deconcentration : a new perspective on America's postwar urban evolution by Gerald A Carlino( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
In this study the authors show that during the postwar era, the United States experienced a decline in the share of urban employment accounted for by the relatively dense metropolitan areas and a corresponding rise in the share of relatively less dense ones. This trend, which the authors call employment deconcentration, is distinct from the other well-known regional trend, namely, the postwar movement of jobs and people from the frostbelt to the sunbelt. The authors also show that deconcentration has been accompanied by a similar trend within metropolitan areas, wherein employment share of the denser sections of MSAs has declined and that of the less dense sections risen. The authors provide a general equilibrium model with density-driven congestion costs to suggest an explanation for employment deconcentration.--FRB Philadelphia web site
