    Workshop Workshop on Behavioral Welfare Economics

    The aim of this workshop on behavioral welfare economics is to make advances on welfare economics based on behavioral economics models. The plan is to develop ideas rather than to present finished work. Hence there will be discussion sessions on different topics that take about an hour and that will each be started by one or two 10-15 minute presentations. There will also be two short paper presentations.

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions Stricter Eligibility Criteria in Disability Insurance: Effects on Diagnoses Protection

    Since the 2001 reform of the disability pension in Germany, occupational invalidity does no longer qualify for a pension. While before the reform the incapability to work in the former job was sufficient for a pension claim, the new regulations require an incapability to work at all. Yet, cohorts born before 1961 have been exempted from the reform to protect their confidence in former legislation. This exogenous variation along birth cohorts allows us to estimate the causal reform effects on pension take-up rates and diagnoses composition using a Regression Discontinuity Design. Working with a 25% sample from the registers of the Statutory Pension Scheme, we show that take-up drops significantly. A disproportionally high share of newly non-eligible individuals suffers from musculoskeletal disorders.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Tax and Transfer Policies and the Female Labor Supply in the EU

    This study measures the effect of tax-benefit policies on female labor supply based on a broad sample of 26 European countries in 2005-2010. The tax-benefit microsimulation model EUROMOD is used to calculate a measure of work incentives at the extensive margin - the participation tax rate, which is then used as the main explanatory variable in a female employment equation. This allows me to deal with the endogeneity of income in a new way by using a simulated instrumental variable based on a fixed EU-wide sample of women. Results suggest that a 10 percentage point increase in the participation tax rate decreases the female employment probability by 2 percentage points. The effect is higher for single mothers, for women in the middle of the skills distribution, and in countries that have lower rates of female employment.

    Conference Financial Stability Conference 2017

    The 5th joint Financial Stability Conference on
    “EU at Crossroads: How to respond to Misalignments in Bank Regulation and achieve a consistent financial Framework?”

    The conference takes a foremost policy-oriented stance to discuss some of the most crucial issues lying ahead. Central questions are the future prospects for international cooperation on regulation, and how to tackle the challenges for achieving a sustainable financial order in the EU. In this respect, the logic of existing bank regulation, the ECB policy as regards financial stability, and the issue of how to deal with non viable banks are controversial topics to be discussed in the light of new political constellations.

    Participation is free of charge (no fees). Registration is opened now. If you would like to attend, you can register via
