Looking for someone who can respond to the following question below. Responses to the questions should be based on the scenario given. Consider some discounting problems. a. What is the present value of a $100m loss from an environmental catastrophe, 100 years in the future, if the discount rate is 2%? (You can choose your own rate of compounding.) b. What is the present value of the same loss, if the discount rate is 1.5% because of lower growth rate trends? If 1%? c. If a policy analyst is not certain which of the discount rates is appropriate, but believes there is an approximately equal chance of each outcome, is the average discounted present value appropriate? Does that imply a higher or lower discounted value than just using the average discount rate? d. Suppose the best available models imply a link between discount rate and damages: if economic growth is slow then the damages would be $150m and the appropriate discount rate would be 1%; if economic growth is middling then damages would be $125m and a discount rate of 1.5% would turn out to be most appropriate; if growth is good then damages are $100m and the rate 2%. Carefully explain whether averaging is the best policy (you might cite readings on this topic). What is the present value of the loss in each case?

Looking for someone who can respond to the following question below. Responses to the questions should be based on the scenario given. Consider a firm that emits CO2 in its production of output, and it faces a new regulation that requires it to buy emissions permits for each unit of CO2 produced. For simplicity assume that it emits one unit of emission (e) for each unit of output produced. Its cost function, before the emissions permit rules are passed, is c(y)=10+5y+y^2. Suppose P=20. a. How much would the firm be producing, before the emissions permit rules? Explain. b. How much CO2 would it be producing before the rules went into effect? Explain. c. Suppose each permit cost $6, how many permits would the firm choose to purchase. Explain. d. What if permits were just $3? If they were $10? e. Would you predict any changes to the price of the output? Explain how and why this might come about.

Looking for someone who can respond to the following question below. Responses to the questions should be based on the scenario given. Consider an industry that creates pollution. Demand for the product is given as P = 150 – 2Q. Supply (considering just private costs) is P=Q. Suppose that production creates a marginal external cost of MEC = Q additionally. a. What is the unregulated equilibrium value of production? b. What is consumer surplus and producer surplus in the unregulated market? c. What is the deadweight loss from unregulated production? d. What is the socially optimal level of production? e. Explain why a "free market" fails in this case. f. Suppose a tax were imposed of T=$8, what would then be the deadweight loss? g. Is there some level of tax that would eliminate the deadweight loss? What value? h. Suppose that there is an unregulated fringe market, that can produce additional output at a price of $60 (there may be a variety of reasons for the lack of regulation, such as point vs nonpoint air pollution sources). What is the deadweight loss of the tax from the previous question?

(Please only reply if you currently have a PhD in finance or economics or are currently enrolled in an accredited doctoral program in these fields. We cannot consider any candidates without this qualification.) Harvey Mudd College has launched a new research collaboration bringing together academics and leading practitioners in the financial advising industry. We are looking to hire a PhD researcher this summer to work on a research article to be submitted to a top-tier finance journal. The project is a unique collaboration between Harvey Mudd - identified by US News & World Report as the most highly selective liberal arts college in the United States - and leaders within Advanced Practice Network, which provides strategies, best practices, and resources to the financial planning community. Over the past 25 years, APN has developed a model for investing and retirement planning that departs significantly from the conventional wisdom underlying modern portfolio theory. Their approach has been vetted extensively in practice with clients, but they have never subjected their core idea and associated quantitative models to the process of peer review. The goal of this project is to test and refine the model and to ultimately influence practices in the wider financial planning industry. This is a process of open intellectual inquiry in which a wide range of finance professors will be invited to comment on the results through a workshop and subsequent peer review process. My role, as someone from outside the industry, is to ensure the integrity of the process and to lend my experience with writing and publishing in research journals. Candidates for this position should have strong skills in quantitative analysis, research, and writing. The ideal candidate will have a solid grasp of foundational theories in investment and retirement. The researcher will undertake a comprehensive literature review; will build models and run scenarios in close collaboration with our CFA; and will collaborate in concept development and writing with leading analysts at APN. The work can take place from any location, but will involve daily conversations with other members of the research team in Los Angeles. This is a full-time paid position for 3 months that will result in co-authorship of a peer-reviewed publication. It is thus a unique opportunity to make a mark in both academic and practitioner circles.
