2022/424: Understanding the decline of interpersonal violence in the ancient middle east Abstract: How did human societies succeed in reducing interpersonal violence, a precondition to achieve security and prosperity? Given that homicide records are only available for the more recent period, much of human history remains virtually outside our purview. To fill this gap, a literature intersecting economics, archaeology, and anthropology has devised reliable methods for studying traumas deliberately inflicted in human skeletal remains. In this paper we reconstruct the early history of conflict by exploiting a novel dataset on weapon-related wounds from skeletons excavated across the Middle East, spanning the whole pre-Classical period (ca. 8,000-400 BCE). By documenting when and how ancient Middle Eastern populations managed to reduce intersocietal violence and achieve remarkable levels of development, we broaden historical perspectives on the structural factors driving human conflict Downloads

2022/423: Services trade contribution on global income generation (2000 - 2014) Abstract: This paper investigates the contribution of services trade to the variation of global income generation for the period of 2000 to 2014, applying a structural decomposition analysis in a global multi-regional input-output framework. We disentangle impacts of determinants of this variation for 56 sectors (of which, 29 are services) on a global level and on seven world regions, considering primary inputs, technology, components of final demand (private consumption, government expenditures and investment), trade and trade structure of both intermediate inputs and final products as drivers. Empirical findings suggest that overall, intermediate trade of services contributed to 5,38% of global income generation while final trade of services to 4,56% for the 15 years-period analyzed. This significant contribution seems to be explained mainly through the increase of demand of services as the negative effect of the structure of trade suggests that per unit of services traded, the value–added generated decreased over this period. At the sectoral level, wholesale trade, the financial sector, administrative and support services, legal and accounting services along with land transport appear to be the most important contributors of the services sectors through trade. Despite having northern European countries along with the BRIIC countries and the northern American ones as the most important contributors through services trade, when looking at the share of contribution of services trade of different groups relative to only their own total contribution, the eastern European countries is the group that makes it to the top Downloads
