Political campaign donations in Chile

Today in Chile, there is a huge concern of how (illegal/irregular) campaign donations buy political access and favourable consideration in legislation. Everything started with PENTAGATE scandal: In 2015, the national prosecutor filed charges for hundreds of fake invoices, evaded taxes, falsified statements and illegally financing the electoral campaigns of right-wing parties candidates against the Chilean financial holding company Penta Group (Here is the coverage done by the New York Times).

Web scraping using python

I made a brief Python code for collecting the data and generating a database of the votes from the Chilean Senate. This is known as Web Scraping where a process automatically extracts data from the website. To do this, I used the Python library: Beautiful Soup. #get_votacion_senadores #Author: Fernando Greve fgreve@gmail.com #This code scraps the Chilean Senate Webpage and constructs a database with #votes of every law project available online. In particular, the code #automaticatly generates a folder for every project and save a csv with votes #and other csv with some project details.

Shiny interactive web app

Shiny is a R package that helps to make interactive web applications. Thus, I used it to show the Senate Votes in Chile. The novelty of this Web application is that it gives the opportunity to have the votes of a particular senator for a certain amount of time. This application is on the next link: Shiny-App. #server.R library("dplyr") library("shiny") load("VotosSenado.Rda") function(input, output) { datasetInput <- reactive({ switch(input$dataset, "TODOS" = head(select(filter(VotosSenado, grepl(input$txt, Tema, ignore.

Weighted histogram with diferent classes of observations

Analysing the distribution of the firm’s productivities within an economy helps to observe the efficiency of that market. For instance, an economy with great dispertion in its productivity distribution could be less competitive than a market with a lower level of dispertion. In other words, competitive markets tend to show firms with similar productivities. In this analysis I supposed that all firms are similar.
