    What began as a financial crisis in 2007/2008 quickly became a massive crisis of the real economy. We investigate the importance of the bank lending and firm borrowing channel in the transmission of asset price shocks to real investment. For the analysis we match individual firm and bank financial statements in Germany for the period of 2004-2010. The data include a large number of medium sized ...

    This study investigates the relationship between locally available quality of early childhood education and care (ECEC) institutions and the probability of maternal employment, use of formal and informal care arrangements. By considering several indicators of structural quality we extend the existing literature which has mostly focused on the importance of availability or costs of ECEC services ...

    Moving to Opportunity or No Opportunity to Move? - Financial Constraints, Internal Migration and Unemployment
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Speaker: Jonathan Stöterau (HU Berlin)
    Ort: Berliner Büro des RWI
    Hessische Straße 10
    10115 Berlin
    Zeit: 6.30 - 8.00 pm

    Abstract: In this paper, I investigate the effect of residential relocation on individual unemployment duration using geo-referenced data from the German Socio-Economic Panel. In contrast with earlier research on migration, this study considers people who move before having found a job and asks how employment outcomes vary by the nature of migration (i.e. its reasons and characteristics). In ...

    The Incidence of Social Security Contributions - Empirical Evidence for Germany

    Speaker: Michael Neumann
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

    This paper exploits an increase of the East German taxable maximum of health insurance to analyse the incidence of social security contributions. A difference-in-differences approach is used to estimate the effects on yearly changes in gross wages. Employees earning somewhat less than the taxable maximum serve as control group. I find that considerable shifting in any direction can be rejected.

    Taxation and Precautionary Savings over the Life Cycle
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Speaker: Davud Rostam-Afschar (FU Berlin)
    Ort: Humboldt Universität Berlin
    Raum 21A
    Spandauer Straße 1
    Zeit: 6.30 - 8.00 pm

    Abstract: In this paper, we examine the effect of progressive taxation on precautionary savings. While there is an extensive literature on precautionary savings in the presence of labor income uncertainty, this paper adds to the small number of studies that explores the link between progressive taxation and precautionary savings.

    Partnership, Gender Roles and the Well-Being Cost of Unemployment
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Speaker: Ronnie Schöb (FU Berlin) (joint with Andreas Knabe and Joachim Weimann)
    Ort: Gustav-Schmoller-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 3.3.002A
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 6.30 - 8.00 pm

    Abstract: We use the differences between life satisfaction and emotional well-being of employed and unemployed persons to analyze how a person's employment status affects cognitive well-being. Our results show that unemployment has a negative impact on cognitive, but not on affective well-being, which we interpret as a loss in identity utility. Living in a partnership strengthens the loss in ...

    Medium-term Effects of the German Parental Benefit Reform
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Ort: Berliner Büro des RWI
    Hessische Straße 10
    10115 Berlin
    Zeit: 6.30 - 8.00 pm

    Abstract: This paper investigates the medium-term effects of Germany's recent parental benefit reform on the mothers' labour participation and modes of employment as well as marriage behaviour using a natural experiment. The new scheme led to a four percentage point higher labour participation rate three to four years after childbirth. Moreover, there is an increase in the share of part-time jobs, ...

    Gender Pay Gap, Tasks and Occupational Changes
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Speaker: Alexandra Fedorets (HU Berlin)
    Ort: Humboldt Universität Berlin
    Raum 21A
    Spandauer Straße 1
    Zeit: 6.30 - 8.00 pm

    Abstract: Since 1990s it is observed that gender segregation in occupations in Germany declines. At the same time, gender pay gap in Germany diminishes. According to the task-based approach, such a dynamic of gender pay gap can be explained by increasing proficiency of women in non-routine cognitive tasks, as well as falling fraction of routine tasks performed by women. As non-routine cognitive ...

    School Starting Age and Crime
    Leibniz Seminar für Arbeitsmarktforschung (BeNA)

    Speaker: Rasmus Landersø (Rockwool Foundation Research Unit & Aarhus University) (joint with Helena Skyt Nielsen and Marianne Simonsen)
    Ort: Humboldt Universität Berlin
    Raum 21A
    Spandauer Straße 1
    Zeit: 6.30 - 8.00 pm

    Abstract: This paper investigates the effects of school starting age on crime while relying on variation in school starting age induced by administrative rules; we exploit that Danish children typically start first grade in the year they turn seven, which gives rise to a discontinuity in children's school starting age. Analyses are carried out using register-based Danish data. We find that higher ...

    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    Learning a musical instrument during childhood may increase educational opportunities by improving cognitive skills, teaching non-cognitive skills or by sending positive signals to teachers. Our study tests these hypotheses with data from the German Socio-Economic Panel, which contains information on musical practice during childhood as well as detailed parental background characteristics. In ...

    The effect of unemployment insurance on exit from employment

    Speaker: Conny Wunsch, University St. Gallen
    Ort: Eleanor-Dulles-Raum
    DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 13:15-14:45

    Abstract: We investigate whether changes in the generosity of unemployment insurance (UI) affect exit from employment via UI. We exploit a recent reform of German UI that drastically reduced maximum benefit periods for workers aged 45 or older. Economic theory suggests that less generous UI makes employed workers more eager to keep their job, implying a reduction in unemployment entry after the ...

    Abstract: This paper exploits the effects of job information centers in West Germany on pupils' educational and occupational choices, as well as on their labor market outcomes in later life. This paper contributes to the very sparse literature on the impacts of the public provision of labor market related information. We exploit the fact that West Germany job information centers were introduced at ...

    This paper proposes a structural life-cycle model to analyze the links between individuals' health, labor market participation, wealth accumulation, and early retirement. I rely on the framework of a dynamic programming discrete choice model which is estimated using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study.

    Abstract: US government spending since World War II has been characterized by large investments in defense related goods, services and R&D. In turn, this means that the Department of Defense (DoD) has had a large role in funding corporate innovation in the US. This paper looks at the impact of military procurement spending on corporate innovation among publicly traded firms for the period 196 ...

    Sector choice, wages, firm structure, and tournament incentives: Evidence from comparing the Swedish private and public sectors

    Ort: Berliner Büro des RWI
    Hessische Straße 10
    10115 Berlin
    Zeit: 6.30 - 8.00 pm

    Abstract: This paper studies the decision of Swedish employees to work in the private or public sector. While the existing sector choice literature focusses on (spot) wage differentials, this paper studies additionally how the expected payoffs from internal promotion tournaments affect sector choice. Jobs promising higher wage ‘prizes' and with higher a priori likelihoods of winning those ...

    Examining the Structure of Spatial Health Effects using Hierarchical Bayes Models

    AbstractThis paper makes use of Hierarchical Bayes Models to model and estimate spatial health effects. We focus on Germany and combine rich individual-level household panel data with administrative county-level information to estimate spatial county-level health dependencies. As dependent variable, we use the generic, continuous, and quasi-objective SF12 health measure. Our findings reveal strong ...
