    DIW Europe Lecture Secular Stagnation in the Global Economy: Presentation by L.H. Summers

    The German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) and the American Academy in Berlin cordially invite you to the public presentation on "Secular Stagnation in the Global Economy" 

    Dr. Lawrence H. Summers  
    71st United States Secretary of Treasury
    President Emeritus and Charles Eliot University Professor, Harvard University


    Moderator: Prof. Marcel Fratzscher, Ph.D.   
    President of DIW Berlin and Professor of Macroeconomics and Finance at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

    May 29, 2015
    10.00 am to 11.15 am

    af Auditorium Friedrichstraße | Quartier 110
    Friedrichstraße 180 | 10117 Berlin

     
    Dr. Summers will discuss the theory of secular stagnation and it´s potential relevance to recent global economic events.  He will argue that the industrialized world is likely to suffer from a structural surplus of savings over investment for quite some time and will discuss a number of implications this presents.  Dr. Summers will focus, in particular, on Europe´s crucial role in the global economy and German´s crucial role in Europe.

    Lawrence Summers, the 71st United States Secretary of Treasury and former president of Harvard University, is currently the Charles W. Eliot University Professor at Harvard University. He served as chief economist of the World Bank from 1991–1993 and as director of the National Economic Council for the Obama Administration from 2009–2011. One of the most influential international economists of the last thirty years, Summers’ foremost professional experience was with the global economic upheaval that came at the end of the Cold War, when he served as Deputy Secretary of Treasury and as the 71st Secretary of the US treasury, from 1995–2001, during the Clinton Administration. During this time, Summers worked on international finance and international development policy, including the privatization of the Russian economy after the Cold War, the Mexican currency crisis of 1994, and the Russian currency crisis of 1998. Domestically, he argued against taxation reduction, which eventually led to the use of budget surpluses to pay off the US national debt for the first time since the 1920s, and simultaneously extended the coverage and cycle of national social welfare programs. Summers’ tenure marked the longest period of sustained economic growth in United States history. Summers became the president of Harvard University in 2001, a position he held until 2006. There he spearheaded number of efforts, including equality of opportunity, major programs for stem-cell research and genomics, and efforts to renew Harvard College for undergraduates. Summers has made significant contributions to a host of international economic issues. In the 1990s, he secured the expansion of debt relief for the world’s poorest countries, thereby increasing those countries’ domestic financing of healthcare and education. Summers also developed the first National Anti-Money-Laundering Strategy and led international efforts to limit the abuses of tax and regulatory havens. He also played an important role in negotiating the United States’ agreement to allow China to join the World Trade Organization. Among his many accolades, Summers has received the John Bates Clark medal (1993), from the American Economic Association, and the Alan T. Waterman Award (1987), which is presented to an outstanding American economist under age forty.

    Veranstaltung The Role of Trade in Addressing Major Economic Challenges

    The talk will focus on both old and new theories of benefits of trade for growth and middle-class incomes, with a particular focus on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP). It will also address the role of trade in helping to tackle a number of other broader challenges including climate change, global poverty and global imbalances.

    Jason Furman was confirmed by the Senate on August 1, 2013 as the 28th Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. In this role, he serves as President Obama’s Chief Economist and a Member of the Cabinet.

    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting Benefiting from Global Value Chains. A new look at Germany’s trade and innovation performance

    Presentation: Dirk Pilat, Deputy Director, OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry
    Comment: Roman Bertenrath, Head Research and Analysis, Institut der deutschen Wirtschaft, IW Köln Consult
    Moderation: Heino v. Meyer, OECD Berlin Centre

    What is Germany's position in global value chains (GVCs) and how is it changing? Dirk Pilat will present a new way of looking at trade relations based on recent OECD work, including a new database on Trade in Value Added that was developed in cooperation with the WTO. He will examine the growth and employment benefits that Germany is drawing from its participation in GVCs. Subsequently the role and impact of domestic policies concerning openness to foreign trade, investment and innovation will be discussed. Finally, the presentation will reflect on how Germany's position might evolve in the future in response to global shifts in demand and markets, technological changes and other factors affecting the position of different economies in GVCs.

    Graduate Center Masterclasses Recent topics in international trade

    The course studies the role of firm heterogeneity in international trade. It reviews the sources of firm heterogeneity and the canonical models of heterogeneity and trade. It then evaluates these models in light of micro-level empirical evidence, and evaluates their quantitative performance for predicting aggregate outcomes. It also offers new directions of research: models of within-firm productivity growth and multiple sources of firm heterogeneity.

    Seminar Quality Upgrading and Price Heterogeneity: Evidence from Brazilian Exporters
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Abstract:
    This paper studies the relation between quality upgrading and pricing across firms and destination countries. The paper builds a model based on heterogeneous firms that set quality and prices to heterogeneous consumers. To test the predictions of this model, the paper uses a uniquely rich data that combines producer quality information and exporter prices by firm and destination country. Direct evidence on self-reported quality upgrading over time makes it possible to separate the quality effect from other sources of price variation, using a difference-in-difference-in-differences approach, that discerns quality upgrading by destination market and timing. Results document quality-based market segmentation, by which firms raise quality and prices at high-income destinations.
    The paper shows that the difference in prices across countries is not driven by differences in market shares, markups, or elasticities of substitution, but by demand for quality in high-income destinations.

    Seminar The China Syndrome: Local Labor Market Effects of Import Competition in the United States
    Berliner Netzwerk Arbeitsmarkt (BeNA) Lecture Series 2012

    Abstract: We analyze the effect of rising Chinese import competition between 1990 and 2007 on local U.S. labor markets, exploiting cross-market variation in import exposure stemming from initial differences in industry specialization while instrumenting for imports using changes in Chinese imports by industry to other high-income countries. Rising exposure increases unemployment, lowers labor force participation, and reduces wages in local labor markets. Conservatively, it explains one-quarter of the contemporaneous aggregate decline in U.S. manufacturing employment. Transfer benefits payments for unemployment, disability, retirement, and healthcare also rise sharply in exposed labor markets. The deadweight loss of financing these transfers is one to two-thirds as large as U.S. gains from trade with China.

    The Berlin Network of Labour Market Researchers (BeNA) was founded in 2004 as a forum for the discussion and development of research projects by young labour market researchers working at universities and research institutions in Berlin. At the heart of the network lies the weekly Seminar on Labor Research and the Lecture Series. Previous BeNA lectures were held by Manuel Arellano, Steve Pischke, Steve Machin, Michael Lechner, Andrea Ichino, Robert Hart and Gerald van den Berg.
