    Veranstaltung Ist Deutschland so ungleich wie vor 100 Jahren?
    Soziale Ungleichheit in historischer Perspektive

    Ist Deutschland heute so ungleich wie vor hundert Jahren? Dieses Ergebnis von Ökonomin Charlotte Bartels zur langfristigen Entwicklung der Einkommensungleichheit in Deutschland wurde in der Öffentlichkeit kontrovers diskutiert. Ihre Studie ist Teil des groß angelegten internationalen Forschungsprojekts der World Inequality Database, die von einem Forscherteam um Anthony Atkinson, Thomas Piketty und Emmanuel Saez initiiert wurde und bisher vor allem auf die Ungleichheit der Markteinkommen abzielt. Aber ist der Einkommensanteil bestimmter Bevölkerungsgruppen am Volkseinkommen das richtige Maß für Ungleichheit? Wie beurteilen Historiker und Soziologen die Entwicklung der Ungleichheit in Deutschland? Wirtschaftshistoriker Nikolaus Wolf dokumentiert die ungleiche Entwicklung von Regionen über das 20. Jahrhundert. Sozialhistoriker Hartmut Kaelble betont, dass auch andere Dimensionen wie Wohnen oder Bildung zu berücksichtigen sind. Dann ist der Trend steigender Ungleichheit weniger eindeutig. Auch bei der Gleichstellung von Frauen und Männern und der Verteilung von politischen Ämtern, sieht Soziologe Jan Delhey keinen Anstieg der Ungleichheit. Zudem spielt Ungleichheit im Alltag heute eine geringere Rolle als früher. Die Zugehörigkeit zur Elite wird heute weniger durch Statussymbole und Konsum demonstriert. Der historische Vergleich ermöglicht, die langfristigen Entwicklungen der Ungleichheit abzuwägen und die Gegenwart besser zu verstehen. Ist die Ungleichheit in Deutschland also heute besorgniserregend? Und was kann uns die deutsche Geschichte über Ursachen wachsender Ungleichheit lehren? Welche politischen Möglichkeiten gibt es, Ungleichheiten abzubauen?

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Was Marx Right? Income Inequality, Market Concentration and Voting in late 19th Century Germany

    The  recent  debate  on  the  causes  and  consequences  of  income  inequality shows striking similarity to the debate in many parts of Europe before 1914. Today and back then the focus was on the role of capital share and market concentration as a cause for rising inequality.  In this study we analyze the drivers and consequences of income inequality exploiting a newly constructed regional panel for the German Empire, 1874-1913.  Our data features large variation in terms of inequality across 30 Prussian districts (Regierungsbezirke) and dynamic changes over time, both  within  the  common  institutional  framework of the German Empire.  Both,  capital share and inequality are strongly associated with rising market concentration.  Further, inequality had a strong effect on political polarization.  However, in seeming contrast to modern results but in line with neoclassical political economy, income inequality in 19th century Germany was mainly linked to support for the political left, while the relationship with the political right is much weaker.

    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting Investment, technological change and skills: Germany and the EU

    Growing downside risks to the economic outlook, together with well-known structural weaknesses, make still more pressing the need for strong reflection on European policy priorities. How can we improve productivity and competitiveness in the EU and in Germany? Is current investment adequate given crisis legacies and the challenges lying ahead? What strategies are needed to foster innovation as a driver of long-term growth, and to master new challenges arising from digital transformation?

    The event will debate challenges for Europe and Germany with regard to technological transformation, skills and financing. It will present findings from the recent EIB Investment Report ”Retooling Europe’s economy”, a comprehensive analysis of investment trends and drivers. This draws on new results from the EIB Investment Survey, a unique datasource providing insights on corporate investment activity for Germany and the EU. The presentation will also cover an in-depth study of innovation, investment in intangible assets and digitalisation as drivers of productivity growth.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Wage premia for skills: complementarity between cognitive and non-cognitive skills

    Abstract:
    I present evidence on the association between individuals' cognitive abilities, personality traits, and earnings in Poland. I find that cognitive skills and certain personality traits are complements. In particular, I find that cognitive skills and emotional stability are complementary, with neurotic individuals having significantly lower returns to their cognitive skills. Furthermore, my results indicate that agreeableness, neuroticism, and – surprisingly – grit are penalised significantly in the labour market; and that there is a positive relationship between conscientiousness and wages. Finally, I observe that, contrary to previous findings, women and men have similar returns to personality traits. I use well-established measures of cognitive skills and personality: namely, competence tests from the PIAAC survey to assess cognitive skills and the Big Five inventory and the Grit scale to assess personality traits.

    Veranstaltung Österreichs Weg zu einer klimaverträglichen Gesellschaft und Wirtschaft

    In der vorliegenden Studie werden die volkswirtschaftlichen Auswirkungen einer konkreten ökologischen bzw. ökosozialen Steuerreform in Österreich mit einem makrosektoralen Modell untersucht. In der volkswirtschaftlichen Analyse wurde eine Anhebung der MÖSt. und eine Einführung der Besteuerung des CO2e-Ausstoßes im Nicht-EU-Emissionshandelssektor als Instrumente zur Generierung von Einnahmen definiert. Unter Berücksichtigung der von der Wissenschaft und Politik geforderten Aufkommensneutralität wurde darauf geachtet, dass diese Einnahmen an die Gesellschaft und Wirtschaft zurückgeführt werden. Im Fokus steht dabei ein Rückvergütungsschema, welches neben der Verwendung der Steuereinnahmen als Kompensationstransfers für private Haushalte und Unternehmen ebenfalls die Reinvestition der Einnahmen in ausgewählte Schlüsseltechnologien der österreichischen Klima- und Energiestrategie #mission2030 und in Innovationsprozesse der österreichischen Industrie und Gesellschaft vorsieht. Die makroökonomische Simulationsanalyse zeigt für den Zeitraum 2020 - 2025, dass die Umsetzung der hier untersuchten Steuerstrukturreform ökologische Lenkungseffekte generiert, soziale Verträglichkeit gewährleistet kann und die tragende Rolle der Industrie und deren Investitionstätigkeiten durch Innovationen unterstützt.

    DIW Seminar on Macroeconomics and Financial Markets Monetary Policy Spillovers, Capital Controls and Exchange Rate Regimes, and the Financial Channel of Exchange Rates

    We assess the empirical validity of the trilemma (or impossible trinity) in the 2000s for a large sample of advanced and emerging economies. To do so, we estimate Taylor-rule type monetary policy reaction functions, relating the local policy rate to real-time forecasts of domestic fundamentals, global variables, as well as the base-country policy rate. In the regressions, we explore variations in the sensitivity of local to base-country policy rates across different degrees of exchange rate flexibility and capital controls. We find that the data are in general consistent with the predictions from the trilemma: Both exchange rate flexibility and capital controls reduce the sensitivity of local to base-country policy rates. However, we also find that the financial channel of exchange rates highlighted in recent work reduces the extent to which local policymakers decide to exploit the monetary autonomy in principle granted by flexible exchange rates in specific circumstances: The sensitivity of local to base-country policy rates for an economy with a flexible exchange rate is stronger when it exhibits negative foreign-currency exposures which stem from portfolio debt and bank liabilities on its external balance sheet and when base-country monetary policy is tightened. The intuition underlying this finding is that it may be optimal for local monetary policy to mimic the tightening of base-country monetary policy and thereby mute exchange rate adjustments because a depreciation of the local currency would raise the cost of servicing and rolling over foreign-currency debt and bank loans, possibly up to a point at which financial stability is put at risk.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Initial Conditions and Nation Building: Evidence from East Germany

    At the end of World War II, 40% of the pre-arranged Soviet occupation zone in Germany was under the control of the Allied Expeditionary Force. This occupation was very short-lived and the Red Army gained full control of the Soviet zone less than two months after the German surrender. However, this paper shows that the brief Allied occupation systematically increased opposition to the budding authoritarian regime that the USSR set up in what would become the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). We exploit variation in the identity of the initial occupation army within the Soviet occupation zone, stemming from the idiosyncratic line of contact separating Soviet and Allied forces. We show that support for the state party (SED) during the last free elections in 1946 was systematically lower in the areas initially occupied by the Allies, while the incidence of protests during the 1953 uprising was higher. This increased resistance to the regime in the Allied-liberated region persists until the 1989 protests leading to the demise of the regime.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Health-Check Up Utilization in UK: Panel Evidence from the BHPS 1992 - 2008

    This analysis has investigated the determinants of screening uptake for the six different screening examinations (breast and cervical cancer screening examination, blood pressure check, cholesterol level test, eyesight test and dental screening). Same type of screening examination and also possible spillover effects from one type of screening examination to another other type of screening examinations have been investigated with univariate and bivariate dynamic panel probit models. The dependent variables were the participation in the screening examination in the recent year. A Wooldridge-type estimator with initial conditions have been used as econometric method. The samples consisted of individuals from the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) for the time period from 1992 to 2008. The analysis has showed the high relevance of past screening behavior and the importance of state dependency for the same and the other type of screening examinations even after controlling for covariates and unobserved heterogeneity. The uptake for breast and cervical cancer screening examinations have been higher when the same type of screening examination have been done one or three years earlier or taking part in previous screening examinations for the other four screening examinations. The result is also in accordance with the NHS breast and cervical cancer screening programmes and with  the recommendations for the other four screening examinations in UK. Positive spillover effects has existed between the screening examinations with regard to blood pressure check and cholesterol level test and also breast and cervical cancer examinations. Other socioeconomic and health related variables have had non-uniform results in the six different screening examinations.

    DIW Seminar on Macroeconomics and Financial Markets "News-driven inflation expectations and information rigidities"

    We investigate the role played by the media in the expectations formation process of households. Using a novel news-topic-based approach we show that the news types the media choose to report on are good predictors of households' stated ination expectations. In turn, in a noisy information model setting, augmented with a simple media channel, we show that the underlying time series properties of relevant news topics explain the time-varying information rigidity among households. As such, we not only provide a new estimate on the degree of time variation in households' information rigidity, but also provide, using a large news corpus and machine learning algorithms, robust and new evidence highlighting the role of the media for understanding ination expectations and information rigidities.

    DIW Seminar on Macroeconomics and Financial Markets Currency Manipulation

    We propose a novel, risk-based transmission mechanism for the effects of currency manipulation: policies that systematically induce a country's currency to appreciate in bad times lower its risk premium in international markets and, as a result, lower the country's risk-free interest rate and increase domestic capital accumulation and wages. Currency manipulations by large countries also have external effects on foreign interest rates and capital accumulation. Applying this logic to policies that lower the variance of the bilateral exchange rate relative to some target country ("currency stabilization"), we find that a small economy stabilizing its exchange rate relative to a large economy increases domestic capital accumulation and wages. The size of this effect increases with the size of the target economy, offering a potential explanation why the vast majority of currency stabilizations in the data are to the U.S. dollar, the currency of the largest economy in the world. A large economy (such as China) stabilizing its exchange rate relative to a larger economy (such as the U.S.) diverts capital accumulation from the target country to itself, increasing domestic wages, while decreasing wages in the target country.
