SOEP Brown Bag Seminar The Short-Term Distributional Effects of the German Minimum Wage Reform

This study quantifies the short-term distributional effects of the new statutory minimum wage in Germany. Using detailed survey data (German Socio-Economic Panel), we assess changes in the distributions of hourly wages, contractual and actual working hours, and monthly earnings. Our descriptive results indicate growth at the bottom of the hourly wage distribution in the post-reform year, but also considerable noncompliance among eligible employees. In a second step, we employ a difference-in-differences analysis and exploit regional variation in the ``bite'' of the intervention, measured by the share of employees in a geographical region with wages below the minimum wage prior to the reform. We document the reform's positive effect at the bottom of the wage distribution. However, we find a negative effect of the reform on contractual hours worked, which explains why there is no effect on monthly earnings. At the same time, actual hours worked remain unchanged, suggesting an increase in unpaid overtime.

(together with Marco Caliendo, Malte Preuss, Carsten Schröder, Linda Wittbrodt)

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Effects of Fees on Study Duration and Completion in the Population of German Students

    This paper exploits unexpected regional changes in fees to uncover the causal effect on the duration of study and completion probabilities for an entire country. The empirical analysis relies on a novel empirical framework that merges difference-in-difference estimation with duration analysis to exploit a natural policy experiment, namely the introduction and terminationof fees for university studies in several German states. This strategy allows uncovering effects of fees on the intensive margin, while holding constant extensive margin responses such as changes in the composition of the student body or migration responses that occur due to fees.We find that even modest fees have large and significant impacts on study duration and will also examine if the private costs paid by students are recovered through pubilc savings due to students studying faster.

    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy Debriefing COP 23 – What has been achieved in Bonn and what is needed for COP 24?

    In a challenging political context, with the US announcement to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, the COP23 in Bonn has a long list of issues to tackle, most notably the process to establish a rule book for the Paris Agreement. The Fiji presidency, representing the many vulnerable countries suffering from climate change impacts, urges for more adaptation support and for recognition of losses and damages due to the global temperature rise. And in 2018 both ambitions and support for more climate action will be on the agenda for the COP24. Thus, also the Polish COP24 presidency needs progress in Bonn, to reduce the high burden of tasks left to be accomplished within the next year.

    We will discuss what was delivered in Bonn and how far the rule book and other necessary instruments like the global stocktake have been developed in the negotiations. We will also hear first-hand insights about the demands and deliveries on climate finance and further support needed for developing countries. In order to set the stage for COP24, we will look towards the Polish presidency of COP24, a presidency that will take place against the backdrop of apparent Eastern European preferences for fossil energy and for a “fair” effort sharing for the EU’s NDC implementation.

    Symposium Die Zukunft des Rentensystems – Verteilungswirkungen und Finanzierung von Rentenreformen

    Hermann Buslei und Peter Haan vom DIW Berlin zeigen in Impulsvorträgen den aktuellen Forschungsstand zu Finanzierungseffekten der Anhebung des Renteneintrittsalters und zu Verteilungswirkungen der gesetzlichen Rente auf.

    Im anschließenden Panel soll diskutiert werden, welche Standpunkte die Parteien hinsichtlich rentenpolitischer Themen, insbesondere der Anhebung des Renteneintrittsalters, der Aufhebung des Äquivalenzprinzips in der Rente sowie der Einführung einer Mindestrente vertreten. Darüber hinaus soll die künftige Rolle der betrieblichen und privaten Altersvorsorge beleuchtet werden.

    Wir freuen uns über Ihre verbindliche Anmeldung an events@diw.de bis zum 25. November 2017.
    HINWEIS: Im Vorfeld der Panelveranstaltung findet am DIW Berlin ein Workshop zur privaten Altersvorsorge statt, mehr Informationen finden Sie hier.

    Workshop Geförderte private Altersvorsorge im Umbruch?

    Im Workshop werden zwei Modelle einer andersgestalteten privaten Altersvorsorge – die Deutschlandrente und das Vorsorgekonto – erörtert. Beide Modelle wollen die private Altersvorsorge durch ein Standard-/Basisprodukt verbessern. Aber wie würde in den beiden Modellen das private Vorsorgen konkret gestaltet werden? Wäre diese Vorsorge freiwillig oder obligatorisch, wie würde die Kapitalanlage erfolgen, wer würde die Produkte verwalten, wer anbieten, gebe es sozialpolitische Komponenten, soll es sich um garantierte oder Produkte ohne Garantiezusagen handeln? Der Workshop bietet Raum für einen Austausch über all diese Aspekte zwischen Wissenschaft, Wirtschaft und Politik.

    Eine Anmeldung ist leider nicht mehr möglich, der Workshop ist ausgebucht.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Sensitivity Analysis of Real Income Growth in the SOEP

    A frequently cited result derived from the SOEP suggests that the poorest two quintiles of the population had hardly experienced any real income growth since reunification, and in addition, they did not benefit from the recent positive economic development in Germany. However, the real rise of only 1 per cent turns into growth of nearly 8 per cent over the last 20 years if the start of the investigated period is shifted slightly and if the influence of the newly added migration sample in 2013 is adjusted for. Likewise, the previously observed minus 8.5 per cent real income loss of the poorest ten percent shifts to a real gain of 5.7 percent since 1994. Furthermore, in relative terms the lower income groups have gained as much of the positive economic development of the past decade as the middle and upper income groups. Similar adjustments for the newly added samples of specific family types suggest that these estimates are rather lower bounds of real income growth in recent years.
