    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Hurricanes, nightlights and the elusive comparative advantage of offshore finance

    A number of small offshore jurisdictions exhibit disproportionally large international capital positions. According to governments of these jurisdictions, such positions are (a) the result of a comparative advantage in providing financial services internationally and (b) improve welfare in these jurisdictions. I use the natural experiment of re-occuring hurricanes to test if (a) the capital positions in these jurisdictions react in line with real economic activity on the island as measured by satellite data on nightlights and (b) if such jurisdictions have an advantage in providing a public good (hurricane resilience) when compared to similar jurisdictions not engaged in offshore finance. Preliminary results suggest that hurricanes have a significant impact on local economic activity but not on capital positions. This suggests that the activities leading to such positions take place elsewhere and are not due to a local 'comparative advantage'. Preliminary evidence on public good provision is mixed suggesting some dissemination of funds acquired through offshore finance activities.

    Veranstaltung Release of the World Inequality Report 2018

    The DIW Berlin is happy to invite you to join the presentation of the first release of the World Inequality Report conducted by the internationally leading inequality experts centered around Thomas Piketty and Gabriel Zucman.

    Economic inequality is widespread and has been growing since the 1980s questioning economic growth policies over the world. The report will be introduced by its general director Lucas Chancel. Thereafter, Charlotte Bartels will present her findings on the evolution of economic inequality in Germany from 1871 to 2013, summarized in the German chapter in the World Inequality Report. Albeit the big political and economic changes affecting Germany over the past 150 years, inequality remained surprisingly stable. In a podium discussion, Lucas Chancel, Charlotte Bartels, and Hartmut Kaelble will discuss long-term implications of rising inequality for the world and Germany.

    Please find here the executive summary of the World Inequality Report 2018

    To participate, we kindly ask you to register via events@diw.de.

    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy Offenlegung und Berichterstattung von Klimarisiken und Treibhausgasemissionen: Welche Rolle können diese Ansätze zur Erreichung der Klimaziele spielen?

    In diesem BSEC wollen wir mit Blick auf den Anfang der Legislaturperiode fragen, welche Rolle informationsbezogenen Ansätze für Dekarbonisierungs-Entscheidungen in Unternehmen spielen können. Hierzu gab es bereits gesetzgeberische Vorstöße, wie die Corporate-Social-Responsibility-Richtlinie der EU oder konsultative Prozesse (High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance der Europäischen Kommission; FSB task force on climate related risk disclosure).

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Positive Effects of Class Size Reductions on Student Achievement in Germany

    Using a unique dataset on the full student population of 3rd graders in the German state Saarland, we exploit plausibly random variation in class size between cohorts within the same school to estimate the effect of class size on student achievement. Conventional estimates of class size effects are shown to be severely biased by systematic sorting of students between and within schools. Correcting for this, we find that smaller classes are beneficial for language and math test scores and also reduce grade repetition.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar The Short-Term Distributional Effects of the German Minimum Wage Reform

    This study quantifies the short-term distributional effects of the new statutory minimum wage in Germany. Using detailed survey data (German Socio-Economic Panel), we assess changes in the distributions of hourly wages, contractual and actual working hours, and monthly earnings. Our descriptive results indicate growth at the bottom of the hourly wage distribution in the post-reform year, but also considerable noncompliance among eligible employees. In a second step, we employ a difference-in-differences analysis and exploit regional variation in the ``bite'' of the intervention, measured by the share of employees in a geographical region with wages below the minimum wage prior to the reform. We document the reform's positive effect at the bottom of the wage distribution. However, we find a negative effect of the reform on contractual hours worked, which explains why there is no effect on monthly earnings. At the same time, actual hours worked remain unchanged, suggesting an increase in unpaid overtime.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Effects of Fees on Study Duration and Completion in the Population of German Students

    This paper exploits unexpected regional changes in fees to uncover the causal effect on the duration of study and completion probabilities for an entire country. The empirical analysis relies on a novel empirical framework that merges difference-in-difference estimation with duration analysis to exploit a natural policy experiment, namely the introduction and terminationof fees for university studies in several German states. This strategy allows uncovering effects of fees on the intensive margin, while holding constant extensive margin responses such as changes in the composition of the student body or migration responses that occur due to fees.We find that even modest fees have large and significant impacts on study duration and will also examine if the private costs paid by students are recovered through pubilc savings due to students studying faster.

    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy Debriefing COP 23 – What has been achieved in Bonn and what is needed for COP 24?

    In a challenging political context, with the US announcement to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, the COP23 in Bonn has a long list of issues to tackle, most notably the process to establish a rule book for the Paris Agreement. The Fiji presidency, representing the many vulnerable countries suffering from climate change impacts, urges for more adaptation support and for recognition of losses and damages due to the global temperature rise. And in 2018 both ambitions and support for more climate action will be on the agenda for the COP24. Thus, also the Polish COP24 presidency needs progress in Bonn, to reduce the high burden of tasks left to be accomplished within the next year.

    We will discuss what was delivered in Bonn and how far the rule book and other necessary instruments like the global stocktake have been developed in the negotiations. We will also hear first-hand insights about the demands and deliveries on climate finance and further support needed for developing countries. In order to set the stage for COP24, we will look towards the Polish presidency of COP24, a presidency that will take place against the backdrop of apparent Eastern European preferences for fossil energy and for a “fair” effort sharing for the EU’s NDC implementation.
