|| (2011-10-10) De Woonerfenis van een Bloemkoolwijk|
Jolita M.W. Steinvoort
In de jaren 70 en begin jaren 80 van de twintigste eeuw schoten ze overal in Nederland als paddenstoelen uit de grond: bloemkoolwijken, ook wel bekend als woonerfwijken. Dit stedenbouwkundig concept ontstond als reactie op de eenvormige, seriematige stempelbouw van de jaren ’60. In de bloemkoolwijk zouden menselijke contacten tot ontplooiing komen. Met de mens als sociaal dier als uitgangspunt, zijn binnen twee decennia ongeveer 1,6 miljoen bloemkoolwoningen gerealiseerd. Een op de zes inwoner....................

Recent events such as Alpe d’HuZes and the Roparun have raised awareness for cancer in general and prostate cancer in specific.

Nowadays, prevention also includes self-responsibility in the sense that if an individual knowingly encompasses c....................

In this research I try to find the effect of income inequality on economic growth in transition economies from Central Eastern Europe (CEE) and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). After dealing with the problem of endogeneity of a lagged dependent variable, I find a positive effect of income inequality on economic growth in transition economies in the first twenty years after the start of their transition. I have also found that some factors have a positive contribution to this effect ....................

“Prosperity: the condition of being successful or thriving; especially: economic well-being”
The reason to depart with a definition of prosperity1 is that throughout history economic
growth and well-being has become the focus of most nations as it affects every single one of
us. Not only when considering leisure and luxury yet also when thinking about health and
other basic human needs. Yet, what is of greatest importance and what we should remember
here is that innovation and economic ....................

|| (2011-10-04) Return Predictability from Realized and Option-Implied Moments|
In this paper we test which computational method, of computing statistical moments,
yields time series that contain most information on future equity returns. The methods
we consider are the realized, autoregressive forecasted realized (AR), and option-implied
method, the latter both model-free and derived from a Generalized Beta Distribution of
the Second Kind (GB2Q). Using a static time series regression, we find a significant positive
relation between the volatility of the AR315d (estima....................
