    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions The Effect of Pension Reforms on Savings Behavior

    Many OECD countries are currently undergoing reforms of their statutory pension schemes. In theory, a decrease of pension generosity can have a positive or negative effect on private savings - depending on the corresponding level of employment effects. Thus, it is an empirical question to determine the sign of the effect. A particular reform of the German Statutory Pension Scheme lifted the early retirement age (ERA) of women. The reform was implemented along birth cohorts, allowing for an intuitive identification strategy and causal interpretation of effects.
    While previous studies found positive effects of other generosity decreasing pension reforms on private savings, this is the first study isolating the effect of an increase of the ERA on savings. An upward-shift of the ERA by 3 to 5 years has a statistically and economically significant negative effect on private monthly savings of single women. The effects in the subsample of couples are insignificant.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar SOEP Special Brown Bag Seminar: Middle Class Fortunes in Western Europe and the U.S.
    Middle Class Fortunes in Western Europe and the U.S.

    Welcome and Introduction: Jürgen Schupp (Director SOEP)
    Comments: Markus M. Grabka (SOEP)

    Abstract:
    This study examines the state of the middle classes in the U.S. and 11 countries in Western Europe and how their economic wellbeing has changed since 1991. Among Western Europe’s largest economies, the report finds that the shares of adults living in middle-income households increased in France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom from 1991 to 2010, but shrank in Germany, Italy and Spain. France, the Netherlands and the UK also experienced notable growth in disposable household income, but incomes were either stagnant or falling in Germany, Italy and Spain. Ireland stands out as experiencing the most rapid growth in income from 1991 to 2010 and the biggest expansion of the middle class. Overall, the middle-class share fell in seven of the 11 Western European countries examined, mirroring the long-term shrinking of the middle class in the U.S. The decrease in the middle-class share is typically accompanied by a move up into the upper-income tiers and a move down into the lower-income tier.

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions The Value of Partial Retirement for Labor Supply, Public Balances and Income Inequality - Evidence from a Structural Analysis

    This paper develops a structural dynamic retirement model to investigate effects and corresponding underlying mechanisms of a partial retirement program in Germany on labor supply, fiscal balances and the pension income distribution. The structural approach  allows to disentangle the two counteracting mechanisms that drive the employment effects of partial retirement: 1) the crowd-out from full-time employment, and 2) the movement from early retirement or unemployment to partial retirement. It also allows to investigate the isolated role of financial compensations in a partial retirement program. The analysis is based on a unique administrative dataset that collects biographical information on full employment histories and combines information on partial retirement take-up with information on individual pension levels. For this purpose I subsequently perform three counterfactual policy simulations: 1) full access to partial retirement 2) an increase of the normal retirement age from 65 to 67, and 3) Adding wage and pension compensations to partial retirement. The results show negative employment effects but potentially positive fiscal consequences as well as a reduction in pension income inequality when partial retirement is introduced. Wage and pension compensations in partial retirement do not substantially affect employment behavior but pension compensations proof necessary to avoid an increased risk of old-age poverty when access to partial retirement is unrestricted.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar The long-term consequences of refugees' initial residential allocation in Germany

     While previous studies show that the ethnic composition of place of residence and immigrants’ socio-cultural and structural integration correlate, the theoretical linkage and the direction of the hypothesized effect remain debated. In order to explain the relationship, we test classical social capital claims about a mediation effect via social embeddedness and a direct effect via opportunities in ethnic concentrations. To preclude neighborhood-sorting effects, we employ data on refugees who arrived in the middle of the 1990s in Germany, who were randomly assigned to municipalities. We find that a higher share of foreigners in refugees’ first place of residence directly hampers their host language acquisition even long after migration, while it facilitates their chances of being employed. We further find mediation effects of co-ethnic embeddedness in ethnic concentrations hampering refugees’ host language acquisition and interactions with Germans. Thus, residential characteristics affect refugees’ long-term integration differently depending on the dimension examined.
