This problem set is due Tuesday, November 19, 2013, 16:15 (you can hand in your solutions either on Tuesday in room SOE-E-1 at the beginning of the exercise session, or on Monday in room KOL-F-104 at the beginning of the lecture). 2. Each student has to hand in and solve the take-home problem set individually, but we encourage you to discuss the exercises with your fellow students in the course’s OLAT forum. 3. Some of the problems have to be solved with a spreadsheet application. Save your files as Exercise B.xlsx, …, and Exercise E.xlsx, and send them (do not send the articles or the raw datasets) to thps@econ.uzh.ch (same deadline as the problem set). The subject (Betreff) of your email has to be THPS: your matriculation number In my case that would be THPS: 02-105-356. 4. Delayed problem sets and spreadsheet applications earn no points. If you copy results from a fellow student, both students’ problem set will earn the lowest grade. 5. You will get points for inherited errors, if you label your calculations in the spreadsheet in a readable manner. Good Luck!
