    Veranstaltung Bretton Woods, Brussels, and Beyond: Redesigning the Institutions of Europe

    Economists have discussed extensively what to do to reform the European Project and how, but have been broadly silent on who and when. Which institutions and rules are needed, and when? This eBook shows that such institutional questions, although seldomly raised, are of fundamental importance for the future of European integration. 

    To participate, we kindly ask you to register at by June 20, 2018.

    Konferenz BCCP Conference and Policy Forum 2018
    Regulatory Challenges in Digital Markets: Trust Online

    The tremendous growth of digital transactions has profoundly affected the way we interact, opening vast opportunities to improve our lives. Consumers have benefited from an unprecedented proliferation of new services and products. At the same time, consumers often must process large amounts of imperfect information regarding the products they purchase and services they use. Even more, for many services consumers need to share highly personal information. Being able to both rely on third party information as well as safely share personal data not only requires a well-designed legal framework and active enforcement. Consumers must trust (potentially dominant) platforms, providers of goods and services, as well as individuals they interact with online. Review and recommendation systems can fill large parts of this need in many commercial transaction contexts. Privacy and data protection regulations intend to strengthen consumers' trust in using digital technologies for an ever-growing set of daily tasks. Will the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) deliver this? How can online marketplaces be designed to allow both firms and consumers to benefit maximally? What is the role of consumer trust for the success of the ambitious project to implement the European Digital Single Market? This conference aims to tackle these questions, the interplay between consumer information and trust online, as well as the regulatory challenges in harnessing the power of digital technologies to its fullest extent by facilitating consumer trust and participation online.

    Online registration is now closed. Updated information about the event will be available at the BCCP Conference website.

    Veranstaltung Radical Markets: Uprooting Capitalism and Democracy for a Just Society
    Book Presentation by Glen Weyl

    Many blame today's economic inequality, stagnation, and political instability on the free market. The solution is to rein in the market, right? Radical Markets turns this thinking on its head. It reveals bold new ways to organize markets for the good of everyone. It shows how the emancipatory force of genuinely open, free, and competitive markets can lead to greater equality, prosperity, and cooperation. Eric Posner and Glen Weyl demonstrate why private property is inherently monopolistic, show how the principle of one person, one vote inhibits democracy, and argue that every citizen of a host country should benefit from immigration―not just migrants and their capitalist employers. They propose leveraging antitrust laws to liberate markets from the grip of institutional investors and creating a data labor movement to force digital monopolies to compensate people for their electronic data. Only by radically expanding the scope of markets can we reduce inequality, restore robust economic growth, and resolve political conflicts. But to do that, we must replace our most sacred institutions with truly free and open competition―Radical Markets shows how.

    DIW Seminar on Macroeconomics and Financial Markets Financial frictions and wages

    This paper aims at analyzing the interaction between financial frictions and wages. We use a large data set for Germany for 2006 to 2014 that combines administrative data on workers and wages with detailed information on firms' balance sheets. Controlling for firm characteristics and time fixed effects, we find that higher leverage (as a measure for financial frictions) implies on average lower wages. To explain this empirical result, we build a theoretical model with labor market frictions and monitoring cost in the financial market. We show that wages react differently to financial frictions depending on whether firms use external borrowing to finance vacancy posting costs only or also the wage bill (as well as vacancy costs). If firms need to finance their wage bill, financial frictions induce a wedge between productivity and wages. Contrary to the existing literature, the model implies higher employment volatility with less rather than more rigid wages.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Fertility as a Driver of Maternal Employment

    Based on findings of an extensive empirical literature that mainly stem from high- income countries, economists often hypothesize that having more children, especially young ones, unambiguously decreases the time mothers spend in the labor market. Re- search on middle- and low-income countries is scarce, despite of several interesting aspects that are common to these countries and that potentially matter for the relationship between fertility and maternal labor supply: the low wealth of a large number of house- holds, the provision of informal child care within extended families, and the high prevalence of informal employment. I use Mexican census data from 2010 in order to provide new evidence on the relationship between fertility and female labor market outcomes in a middle-income country. In order to disentangle causal effects of childbearing, parental preferences for mixed-sex siblings are exploited. My findings show that an exogenous rise in family size is associated with a significant increase in labor supply by mothers that are induced to change their family size by the instrument. This response tends to be driven by an increase in formal employment at the intensive margin for a very small fraction of women, while having mainly an impact at the extensive margin for informal labor. I further show that the presence of grandparents and low household wealth potentially contribute to this positive effect. The external validity of my results is shown to be limited, but econometric approaches that allow to extrapolate from this effect indicate that the response in informal employment is non-negative for the whole sample.

    Veranstaltung 2nd DIW Lecture on Money and Finance on SBBS – De-risking Europe’s Financial Markets

    Europe’s sovereign debt crisis has proven particularly pernicious. A key reason for that was the strong link between banks and states. Banks’ fate was inextricably mingled with their respective sovereign, what was alluded to as the doom-loop. From a euro area perspective, banks were under-diversified, exposed to too much concentration risk. One interesting answer to this issue could be the creation of a – synthetic – European, i.e. non-national, safe asset – without risk-sharing. Sovereign bond backed securities (SBBS), designed to provide diversification and thus de-risking benefits, could perform a stabilizing role. In the fall of 2016, under the chairmanship of Philip R. Lane, Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland, the European Systemic Risk Board launched a comprehensive study to assess the feasibility as well as cost and benefits of such an approach.
