This paper uses disaggregated CPI time series to analyze the dynamics of French in ‡ation. It shows that a break in the mean of in ‡ation throughout the CPI basket occurred in the mid-eighties. This con…rms that the 1983 shift to the "Franc fort" policy had an impact on in ‡ation dynamics. CPI average yearly growth declined from nearly 11% before the break(More)

Amblyomma variegatum and A. hebraeum are two ticks of veterinary and human health importance in south-east Africa. In Zimbabwe they occupy parapatric (marginally overlapping and juxtaposed) distributions. Understanding the mechanisms behind this parapatry is essential for predicting the spatio-temporal dynamics of Amblyomma spp. and the impacts of(More)
Epidemiosurveillance networks face numerous challenges: diversity of diseases, farming practices and environment; language barriers; heterogeneity of socioeconomic development levels, health infrastructure and laboratory and epidemiology capacities; disparate veterinary legislation and health policies; and an increasing lack of human and funding resources.(More)
Existing exogeneity conditions of literature are only sufficient and imply “overly strong” constraints on long-run parameters. This paper presents some new results on exogeneity in VECM models. A key concept of the analysis is the “purely exogenous long-run path”, i.e. a cointegrating vector only including “exogenous” variables. Extending earlier results of(More)
