    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions Hurricanes, nightlights and the elusive comparative advantage of offshore finance

    A number of small offshore jurisdictions exhibit disproportionally large international capital positions. According to governments of these jurisdictions, such positions are (a) the result of a comparative advantage in providing financial services internationally and (b) improve welfare in these jurisdictions. I use the natural experiment of re-occuring hurricanes to test if (a) the capital positions in these jurisdictions react in line with real economic activity on the island as measured by satellite data on nightlights and (b) if such jurisdictions have an advantage in providing a public good (hurricane resilience) when compared to similar jurisdictions not engaged in offshore finance. Preliminary results suggest that hurricanes have a significant impact on local economic activity but not on capital positions. This suggests that the activities leading to such positions take place elsewhere and are not due to a local 'comparative advantage'. Preliminary evidence on public good provision is mixed suggesting some dissemination of funds acquired through offshore finance activities.

    Conference Conference on the "Evaluation of Minimum Wages“

    The conference „Evaluation of Minimum Wages“ will be held at DIW in Berlin on July 4 and 5, 2018. The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for the most recent research on the effects of minimum wages. While the focus will be on the situation in Germany—after the introduction of the national statutory minimum wage in 2015—we also seek empirical contributions from other countries or papers with a theoretical focus or methodological advancements. The keynote lecture will be given by Prof. Dr. David Neumark (University of California, Irvine).

    Scientific committee and organizers:
    Marco Caliendo (University of Potsdam),
    Carsten Schröder (SOEP/DIW Berlin and FU Berlin),
    Jürgen Schupp (SOEP/DIW Berlin and FU Berlin),
    Alexandra Fedorets (SOEP/DIW Berlin),
    Lutz Bellmann (IAB Nuremberg).

    Further Information can be found in the Call for Papers.
