Directed technological change and general purpose technologies: can AI accelerate clean energy innovation?
Abstract

The race between clean and dirty technologies is taking place against the backdrop of improvements in general-purpose technologies such as information and communication technologies (ICT) and artificial intelligence (AI). In this paper, the authors show how, in theory, a general-purpose technology can affect the direction of technological change and, in particular, the competition between clean and dirty technologies. Using patent data from the electricity and transport sectors, they show that clean technologies use and benefit more from AI and ICT knowledge than dirty technologies do and that energy patenting firms with higher AI knowledge stocks are more likely to absorb new AI knowledge for their energy inventions. The authors conclude that ICT and AI have the potential to accelerate clean energy innovation, which is critical for reducing carbon emissions.

China’s Foreign Aid: Political Determinants and Economic Effects
 
There has been much speculation -- but little causal evidence -- on the motives behind the large sums of foreign aid some countries provide to other countries. I address this question in the context of China, one of the largest but also most poorly understood donors. Using unique micro data, I document that the Chinese state's paramount goal of domestic political stability is an important driver of its aid allocation. In response to labor unrest in China, infrastructure aid contracts are allocated to state-owned firms in the affected areas, resulting in increased employment and subsequent stability. In addition, I show that domestic unrest also affects the allocation of Chinese aid to recipient countries through connections with these firms. Finally, I exploit this granular variation to develop a novel instrument for identifying the causal effects of Chinese aid on recipients. I find positive short-term effects on GDP but no effects on long-term economic growth, household consumption or employment.

Fiscal Austerity and Sovereign Debt Restructurings
Abstract
Sovereigns implement fiscal austerity, i.e., expenditure consolidation around debt crises. We compile data on fiscal expenditure consolidation around debt restructurings with private external creditors in 1975–2020. We find that expenditure consolidation precedes preemptive restructurings or prevents restructurings—“pre-crisis”—, while occurs upon defaults/post-default restructurings—“post-crisis”. We build sovereign debt model with endogenous choice of preemptive and post-default renegotiations and public capital accumulation. The model quantitatively shows when both public capital and debt are high, the sovereign implements pre-crisis fiscal expenditure consolidation which, in turn, results in preemptive restructurings or non-restructuring (preventing restructurings). Data support theoretical predictions.
