**How to Give a Presentation**Ron Davies February 19, 2010**Hints**• Dress nicely. • Limit the number of slides. • Make the first slide creative.**Tax Competition in anExpanding EU**Ron Davies (UCD) and Johannes Voget (Oxford and Heidelburg)**FDI in Space**Bruce A. Blonigen, Ronald B. Davies, Glen R. Waddell, and Helen Naughton Department of Economics, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR 97403-1285, USA This Draft: November 2005**Hints**4. Use color. 5. Font size is critical.**Font Size**• This is 36 • This is 28 • This is 24 • This is 20 • This is 16 • This is 12 • This is 10**Hints**6. Avoid lots of text.**How many of you are listening right now?**• We develop the first theory driven weighting scheme for use in international taxation for our econometrics • Anselin (1988) notes need for theory to choose weights, theory specified weights are important • Improves on existing literature which finds weak evidence of tax competition, at best significant coefficients 50% of the time. • Our weights are driven by market potential, i.e. the domestic market plus access to other countries, including the parent country • Baldwin and Krugman (EER, 2004)**This is better.**• We develop the first theory driven weighting scheme for our econometrics • Anselin (1988) notes need for theory to choose weights • Improves on existing literature which finds weak evidence of tax competition. • Weights driven by market potential, i.e. the domestic market plus access to others • Baldwin and Krugman (EER, 2004)**Hints**7. Limit animation. This looks really stupid. This takes forever to show up.**The Striptease**It Isn’t As Cool As You Hoped.**Hints**8. Explain what and why in the first few slides.**Our Goal**• Is there empirical evidence for • Tax competition overall? • Does the tax in one country depend on the taxes set elsewhere? • An impact of EU expansion on tax competition? • Answer: yes on both counts • Taxes in one country depend on taxes in others • EU members are more sensitive to the taxes of other members than they are to non-members**Hints**9. Use a roadmap.**Road map**• Theory: what weights to use? • Data/Empirical approach • Results • Robustness Checks • Conclusion**Hints**10. Lit reviews Only tell them what’s critical Don’t use lists Give where it’s from Baldwin and Krugman (EER, 2004)**Hints**11. Read your equations**Hints**12. Use maps, flow charts, etc.**FDI Motivations: Export Platform**Parent Host A Spatial Lag: Negative Market Potential Effects: Positive Host B Host C FDI Trade**Hints**13. Use parts of tables**Hints**14. What is the unit of observation? Why show them a table of summary statistics? And use stars!**Hints**15. Conclusion slide. What and why What should they walk out remembering?**Conclusion**• We find robust evidence of tax competition for mobile capital • Note: This is not the only interpretation of the positive spatial lag. • Trade agreements affect tax competition • Non-EU respond the same to both • EU responds more to EU than non-EU**Hints**16. Practice! 17. Handling questions. 18. Know your audience. 19. Look at your audience.**Hints**20. Snapshot in pdf.**Summary**• Good presenting skills are just that – a skill • Practice and effort critical • How you present yourself gets (and loses) jobs
