Many argue that home bias arises because home investors can predict home asset payoffs more accurately than foreigners can. But why does global information access not eliminate this asymmetry?

We identify a 'slope' factor in exchange rates. High interest rate currencies load more on this slope factor than low interest rate currencies. As a result, this factor can account for most of the cross-sectional variation in average excess returns between high and low interest rate currencies. A standard, no-arbitrage model of interest rates with two(More)

The purpose of this paper is to understand the effects of endoge-nous markups and trade costs on the pricing behavior of exporters when firms are heterogeneous in productivity. Using new analytical distributions for markups under Bertrand competition, we uncover Ricardian patterns of export pricing that generate higher markups and export price volatility(More)
High interest rate currencies yield high currency excess returns on short-term Treasury bill investments, but they tend to yield low local excess returns on long-term government bonds. At longer maturities, the low term premium offsets the high currency risk premium. Under no arbitrage conditions, this exact result obtains when global permanent innovations(More)

According to Schaffer (2000a), " trumping preemption " is a category of redundant causation distinct from early and late preemption and from overdetermination. I show that the putative causal difference between causal processes in cases thought to be trumping preemption generates early preemption or overdetermination rather than trumping.

A protocol analysis project investigated the relation between successful and unsuccessful students' reasoning about chemistry and their rhetorical knowledge. We observed that (1) students' writing processes were affected by several constraints(More)

On a simple treatment of these sentences, they have ordinary, subject-predicate form. The subject 2(More)
