    Workshop 1st Workshop “Economic Theories and Low-carbon Transformation Policies”

    The workshop aims to advance analytical research on economic processes and policies for low-carbon transformation: policies meaning the role and tools of government and governance, and transformation as involving significant changes and innovation in (organizational) behaviour, technologies and systems, investment and financing.

    The main objective is to incorporate in analytic models lessons learnt (drawing on the underlying empirics) and responses to novel issues raised by the current context of the climate policy. Through this we aim to increase the visibility of this research agenda in economics and to strengthen intellectual foundations to enhance clarity and credibility for policy making.

    The format of the workshop will be centred on presentations of about 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes discussion on the specific technical aspects of each paper. These will then be followed by panel discussions on broader insights emerging from the papers and other considerations relevant to each of the themes. Thus we aim to provide an opportunity to explore (i) insights for broader understanding (ii) policy implications (iii) emerging structures and questions.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Turning Points in Life Courses: Conceptualization, Measurement and Typology

    Life course research allows studying issues such as social inequality, social status attainment, education, migration, family formation, or gender as processes that involve continuity and change. Turning points are a key concept in this research field because they can help understand processes of overhaul and stability in life courses. In general terms, turnings points describe phases in which a person’s life changes directions fundamentally. Despite their prominent role in life course research, concrete conceptualizations of turning points in the literature vary and are often fuzzy. We suggest developing an analytic definition of turning points that captures core characteristics and helps analyzing turning points with either quantitative or qualitative analysis. To do so, we use a mixed methods data set comprised of SOEP data and qualitative in-depth interviews with SOEP participants. We employ qualitative case analysis to construct a thick concept of turning points in status attainment trajectories and use cluster analysis of SOEP data to explore whether our concept of turning points reflects meaningful groupings in the SOEP data. In Wednesday's Brown Bag Seminar, we will give an overview of our work in progress and (hopefully) present first results from the cluster analysis.

    Joint work with with Prof. Dr. Olaf Groh-Samberg (University of Bremen, SOCIUM Research Center on Inequality and Social Policy) and (Junior) Prof. Dr. Ingrid Tucci (Laboratoire d’Economie et de Sociologie du Travail, CNRS - Aix-Marseille Université).

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions The Increasing Longevity Gap and the Pension System

    We use social security records to document the heterogeneity in life expectancy by lifetime earnings for West Germany and we analyze how this longevity gap has evolved over cohorts. In line with previous studies, we provide evidence that the earnings-related longevity gap is increasing over cohorts. We then propose a decomposition to disentangle the role of the increasing earnings inequality over cohorts and the effect of changes in the earnings gradient on life expectancy. Finally, we study the distributional implications of the increasing longevity gap for the pension system. First, we show how the heterogeneity in life expectancy affects the distribution and the inequality of social security wealth and we document how this has evolved between the cohorts. Second, we calculate contribution/benefit ratios and compare the rates by lifetime earnings and between cohorts. Third, we extend the analysis by also accounting for survivor pensions and heterogeneous life expectancies of surviving spouses.

    Conference 2nd annual BCCP Conference
    Regulatory Challenges in Digital Markets: Algorithms and Platform Competition

    The tremendous growth of digital transactions – mainly through online platforms – has profoundly affected the way we interact and has opened vast opportunities to improve our lives. The disruptive impact of this process is driven by one core feature: its ability to reduce inefficiencies. Consumers have benefited from an unprecedented proliferation of new services and products that previously were simply too costly to be developed and marketed to customers. At the same time, network effects in platform business models have brought market power concerns back to the front stage. Who reaps the largest benefits and profits in super-efficient online markets? Consumers? Innovative firms? Incumbent firms? This conference aims to tackle these questions and discuss the need for and appropriateness of policy interventions in such quickly evolving markets. We especially will focus on regulatory issues related to the development of sharing economy platforms and the increased use of algorithms.
