Economic Growth of The Polish territories in the Time of The First Globalization.

UMO-2011/01/B/HS4/04795 - OPUS

The objective of the research is twofold: first, to verify hypotheses concerning convergence/divergence of the growth trajectory of the Polish lands with the developed Western core countries in the epoch of the first globalization (ca. 1870-1913), and second, to contribute to the newly emerging field of historical economics through providing datasets allowing for testing economic models against the data from the past.


The influence of risk preferences on social benefits valuation for forest fires prevention in Poland.

The influence of risk preferences on social benefits valuation for forest fires prevention in Poland.

UMO-2011/01/B/HS4/04750 - OPUS

The proposed project relates to the field of economics dealing with the valuation of non-market environmental goods and services based on declared preferences. Itsmain objective is valuation of social benefits for forest fires and investigation the relationship between this valuation and individuals’risk preferences. Risk and uncertainty play a significant role in almost every economic decision.

Understanding risk attitude is a crucial factor to get to know the process of resource allocation, including decisions on investments decreasing risk of environmental damages. The additional contribution of this survey is conducting a comparative analysis between two methods eliciting risk preferences: a method using a general approach and the method based on the subject-specific risk approach.

Migration Networks as dynamic ROSCAs

UMO- 2011/03/B/HS4/02334 - OPUS

A migration network agreement is a form of mutually beneficial cooperation between financially-constrained individuals who seek to finance and expedite their migration, in a manner akin to the functioning of a Rotating Savings and Credit Association (ROSCA).

The agreement shortens the time required to accumulate the resources needed to pay for the cost of migration and initial settlement in the country of destination. Seen this way, a migration network is an exchange arrangement that binds individuals across the sending and receiving countries, and over time. In this proposal we show why a cooperation agreement is more beneficial than “going it alone:” it reduces the opportunity cost of migration, which is measured by the utility forfeited during the period of savings in order to pay for migration. It also creates a network in the sense that “established” migrants contract to support the subsequent migration of others in exchange for receiving support themselves.

In research to be undertaken, we will seek to show that when the risk involved in participating in a cooperation agreement is incorporated, the propensity to enter a cooperation agreement depends positively on the cost of migration.

The risk arises from the possibility that an individual who is randomly drawn to be the first to migrate will renege, succumbing to the temptation of enjoying a higher income sooner rather than later. We will also expand the model to study cooperation between more than two individuals, and explore the possibility that there is a finite optimal size of the migration network. Our conjecture is that this size depends on the interplay between the rate of increase in the lifetime benefit to a migrant who participates in a cooperative arrangement and the rate of decline in the affinity between the participants in the agreement as the network expands. If our conjecture will be born out, then we will be able to conclude that would-be migrants in the sending country will form a multitude of networks rather than a single grand network.

Finally, we will seek to list testable predictions of the model.

Network development of higher education management systems (DEHEMS)

2009-3670/001-001 - MNiSW

The main objective of the project was to examine the determinants of success in entering the labour market by graduates of higher education institutions and to propose recommendations for the management of higher education institutions (in particular, for quality management systems), the implementation of which would improve the effectiveness of higher education and, in particular, ensure more effective entry of graduates into the labour market. The study used national data sources on the situation of graduates and economic activity of the population. An important part of the project were the activities disseminating its results, realised mainly through maintaining a website, publishing an electronic newspaper and organising two large international conferences. The obtained results and recommendations, while still under development, were discussed with representatives of institutions operating in the higher education sector. The Faculty of Economic Sciences of the University of Warsaw participated in all eight packages of activities of the DEHEMS project.
