    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions The effect of exposure to STEM in secondary school on field of study choice

    The choice for a field of study has large consequences on later labor market outcomes. However, in absence of liberal arts and sciences bachelors, field of study choice is often made quite early: either in secondary school or at the start of university. A growing literature shows that information about (direct or indirect through exposure) affects students’ field of study choices. We investigate the effect of a nationwide policy in which some secondary school students receive additional exposure to STEM fields due to an extra STEM instruction time. We use schools which shift into the program over time using school fixed effects. We find that students affected by the policy have lower graduation rates. Further, we find that students affected by the policy are more likely to pursue a softer STEM degree (Health care or Agriculture) and less likely an interdisciplinary degree.

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions Teacher incentives and grade retention

    This paper provides a simple framework to test whether teachers strategically retain students in the first grade of primary school in order to minimize the number of students in their class for grades 2-4. I build a model in which classes are subject to a class size cap and teachers can choose to retain students if their performance falls below an academic threshold. The key prediction, borne out in administrative data for the German state Sachsen, is that grade retention rates increase monotonically with class size but drop sharply in the vicinity of the class-size cap because teachers expect that classes might be split if class size exceeds the class size cap in the next grade.

    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting China's economic policy future: state capitalism or strengthened market economy?

    The DIW Berlin and the OECD Berlin Centre cordially invite you to the Berlin Lunchtime Meeting.

    In China the strengthening of market mechanisms hoped for by western businesses is making only slow progress. Instead the state and the Communist Party are expanding their influence in the economy. This has consequences for China's economic policy. In the past decades this has led to growing overcapacities and indebtedness. Now China is aiming at global technological leadership. Is this approach a threat to the liberal order of the global economy?

    Dr. Max J. Zenglein, Senior Economist at MERICS, is working on sector-specific and macro-economic aspects of economic development in China, German-Chinese economic relations as well as the labour market and employment in China. Before joining MERICS Dr. Zenglein worked as an analyst at the German Chamber of Commerce (AHK) Greater China in Shenzhen, and later in Beijing. He finalised his university studies at the University of New York at Buffalo, the University of Economics and Law in Berlin, the University of Hong Kong and the University of Kassel with a doctorate in political economy focusing on China.

    Margit Molnar, Ph.D., is Senior Economist at the OECD’s Economics Department. She heads the China Desk of the Country Studies division in the Economics Department.

    Prof. Marcel Fratzscher, Ph.D., is President of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), Professor of Macroeconomics and Finance at the Humboldt University Berlin, and Member of the Advisory Council of the Federal Ministry of Economics.

    The event language will be English.

    Wednesday, April 25, 2018 | 12:00 p.m. to 14:15 p.m.
    starting with a lunch snack at 12:00 p.m.

    The lecture starts at 13:00 p.m.

    We look forward to your participation, and request that you register at
