————————————————————————-

US Bureau of Economic Analysis Working Paper: “The Role of Industry Classification in the Estimation of Research and Development Expenditures,” by Christian Awuku-Budu and Carol A. Robbins (WP2014-12, August 2014, .pdf format, 25p.).

Abstract:

This paper uses data from the National Science Foundation’s surveys on business research and development (R&D) expenditures that have been linked with data from the Census Bureau’s Longitudinal Business Database to produce consistent NAICS-based R&D time-series data based on the main product produced by the firm for 1976 to 2008. The results show that R&D spending has shifted away from domestic manufacturing industries in recent years. This is due in part to a shift in U.S. payrolls away from manufacturing establishments for R&D-performing firms. These findings support the notion of an increasingly fragmented production system for R&D-intensive manufacturing firms, whereby U.S. firms control output and provide intellectual property inputs in the form of R&D, but production takes place outside of the firms’ U.S. establishments.

US Internal Revenue Service Working Paper: “Early Withdrawals from Retirement Accounts During the Great Recession,” by Robert Argento, Victoria L. Bryant, and John Sabelhaus (November 2014, .pdf format, 26p.).

Abstract:

Early withdrawals from retirement accounts are a double-edged sword, because withdrawals reduce retirement resources, but they also allow individuals to smooth consumption when they experience demographic and economic shocks. We show that pre-retirement withdrawals trended up between 2004 and 2010, but the trend is modest given the substantial early withdrawals (particularly relative to new contributions) occurring in all of those years. Early withdrawal events are strongly correlated with shocks to income and marital status, and lower-income taxpayers are more likely to experience the types of shocks associated with early withdrawals, and they are more likely to have a taxable withdrawal when they experience a given shock.

Centro De Estudios Monetarios Y Financieros [Madrid, Spain] Working Paper: “Distributional linkages between European sovereign bond and bank asset returns,” by Julio Galvez and Javier Mencía (Working Paper 1407, November 2014, .pdf format, 47p.).

Abstract:

We analyse the dependence between sovereign bonds’ and banks’ asset return distributions with a large panel of European data from 2001 to 2013. Using quantile regressions, we identify nonlinear contemporaneous and lagged dependence. As a result, shocks to crisis-hit sovereign bonds have contemporaneous effects on the whole distribution of banks’ returns, as well as a persistent impact in the tails. Our results offer relevant insights about the relationship between banking and sovereign crises. In particular, during the recent financial crisis, banks’ asset return distributions have lower means and fatter tails than in the absence of a simultaneous sovereign crisis.

US Internal Revenue Service Working Paper: “Early Withdrawals from Retirement Accounts During the Great Recession,” by Robert Argento, Victoria L. Bryant, and John Sabelhaus (November 2014, .pdf format, 26p.).

Abstract:

Early withdrawals from retirement accounts are a double-edged sword, because withdrawals reduce retirement resources, but they also allow individuals to smooth consumption when they experience demographic and economic shocks. We show that pre-retirement withdrawals trended up between 2004 and 2010, but the trend is modest given the substantial early withdrawals (particularly relative to new contributions) occurring in all of those years. Early withdrawal events are strongly correlated with shocks to income and marital status, and lower-income taxpayers are more likely to experience the types of shocks associated with early withdrawals, and they are more likely to have a taxable withdrawal when they experience a given shock.
