In the Dixit-Stiglitz model of monopolistic competition, entry of rms is socially too small. Other authors have shown that excess entry is also a possibility with other preferences for diversity. We show that workers rents also contribute to explain excess entry through a general equilibrium mechanism. Larger wages indeed raises the aggregate earnings and rms sales and pro ts, which entices too many rms to enter. We discuss the possibility of over-provision of varieties by comparing the equilibrium to unconstrained and constrained social optima and to other regulatory framework where wages are not controlled.

The present study investigates how working memory and fluid intelligence are related in young children and which aspect of working memory span tasks– short-term storage or controlled attention - might drive the relationship. A sample of 119 children were followed from kindergarten to 2nd grade and completed assessments of working memory, short-term memory, and fluid intelligence. The data showed that working memory, verbal short-term memory, and fluid intelligence were highly related but separate constructs in young children. The results further showed that when the common variance between working memory and short-term memory was controlled, the residual working memory factor manifested significant links with fluid intelligence whereas the residual short-term memory factor did not. These findings suggest that in young children the executive demands rather than the storage component of working memory span tasks are the source of their link with fluid intelligence. [less ▲]

This technical note proposes a new framework for the design of continuous time, finite state space Markov processes. In particular, we propose a paradigm for selecting an optimal matrix within a pre-specified pencil of transition rate matrices. Given any transition rate matrix specifying the time-evolution of the Markov process, we propose a class of figures of merit that upper-bounds the long-term evolution of any statistical moment. We show that optimization with respect to the aforementioned class of cost functions is tractable via dualization and linear programming methods. In addition, we suggest how this approach can be used as a tool for the sub-optimal design of the master equation, with performance guarantees. Our results are applied to illustrative examples.

The aim of the present study was to investigate the contribution of two working memory systems (the phonological loop and the central executive) to children’s foreign language learning. A sample of 119 Luxembourgish children, whose native language is Luxembourgish and who learn German and French as secondary languages in school were assessed longitudinally over a 4-year time period. Children were tested in kindergarten (5 years of age), in first, second, and third grade with a one-year interval between each testing wave. Results indicate that individual differences in phonological loop functioning were causally related to foreign vocabulary development. One particular phonological loop measure - the repetition of low wordlike nonwords - was identified as the single best predictor of the acquisition of an unfamiliar foreign language up to two years later, suggesting that this measure may provide a valuable tool for early screening to identify children who are at present and future risk for foreign language learning difficulties.
