Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions Lifetime inequality: The impact of taxation, transfers and pensions

(together with Daniel Kemptner and Victoria Prowse)
In this paper, we analyze how income taxes, transfer programs and the pension system affect inequality in lifetime income. Importantly, we consider pre-retirement and post-retirement income and thereby we extend the previous literature on lifetime inequality, which has only considered income received before retirement. We use a dynamic structural life-cycle model to derive trajectories of earnings and net income over the whole life-cycle. Based on these life-cycle profiles, we investigate the drivers of inequality in lifetime gross earnings and we study the impact of taxes, transfer and pensions on inequality in lifetime net income. We also explore how major sources of life-cycle risk, namely employment an health risks, affect life-time income and how the different fiscal programmes provide insurance for these life-cycle risks.

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions The Role of Time Preferences in Educational Decision Making

    We evaluate the role of time preferences in educational decision making, when deviating from the standard-neoclassical assumption of exponential discounting. Based on a dynamic structural life-cycle model we analyse the importance of the discount factor for policy simulations. This is done by considering two relevant policies: (1.) a change in the state grant for students (BaföG) as a way to affect short-run benefits while at school and (2.) a change in progressive taxation as a way to affect long-run benefits of schooling since labour income generally increases with additional years of schooling.

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions Peer Effects in Labor Supply Decisions of Mothers with Young Children

    Social and economic policies are likely to affect individuals not only by the change in financial incentives, but also by a change in the behavior of their social or work environment. It is our goal to determine social interaction effects in the context of employment behavior in Germany. In particular, we analyze whether the labor supply decisions of mothers with young children depend on the decisions made by their coworkers. The identification of social interaction effects bears various challenges that need to be overcome by the design of the empirical strategy. To this end we follow a reduced-form approach exploiting quasi-random variation in the costs of parental leave induced by the introduction of the new Elterngeld in 2007. Administrative linked employer-employee panel data enables us to assign a peer group to each individual and provides us with individual employment histories of all individuals in these social groups. This data set, combined with microeconometric and quasi-experimental methods, allows us to overcome the challenges associated with the identification and determine existence and magnitude of social interaction effects in employment decisions.

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions Job Search Expectations

    We introduce subjective expectations about the labour market into a job search model. We show how biases in expectations over the wage distribution affect optimal search intensity and the duration of unemployment. Optimistic individuals search more but reject more offers, with an ambiguous effect on unemployment duration. Based on extensive survey data from Germany, we confirm previous evidence that the unemployed are overly optimistic. We show how the simple search model with subjective wage expectations can be empirically estimated using panel data including information on expectations. Estimation is work in progress.

    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions The German child-care pension benefit and household savings

    In this paper, I estimate the impact of the German child-care pension benefit (Kindererziehungszeiten) on household savings, exploiting the pension reform 1992 as a natural experiment based on the Income and Expenditure Survey (EVS). The child-care pension benefits are designed as a compensation for employment interruptions due to child-birth and they increase a mother’s pension wealth. In principle, this implies negative incentives for private savings. However, the preliminary results indicate that household savings are not affected by the higher generosity of child-care pension benefits.
