The link between family networks and mental health for exogamous couples in old age

Speaker: Chia Liu, Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research & University of St. Andrews
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

In later life, social ties become increasingly important for one’s mental health. In this study, we test whether exogamous unions, in which one of the partner is migrant and one native, affect older individual’s social networks, and whether the association between exogamy and mental health operates through social networks. We hypothesize that immigrants gain social capital ...

The Long-Term Effects of World War II Destruction on Private Wealth in Germany

Speaker: Christoph Halbmeier
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

The physical destructions, expropriations, resettlements, and interruptions of international trade during Second World War caused a sharp reduction of wealth levels and inequality in many countries (Piketty, 2014). In Germany, an estimated 20 percent of the West German housing stock was destroyed. This paper assesses whether the effects of this destruction are measurable in the German ...

Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:00 - 13:00

We combine unique data that include all practitioner health diagnoses based on the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) collected from all publicly insured individuals in Germany with a sizable cohort specific pension reform to study the causal effect of an increase in the retirement age on health. For the analysis, we use a cohort specific regression discontinuity design. The data ...

Does Unemployment Make Better Fathers? The Effect of Job Loss on Fathers’ Time Investment in the Household

Speaker: Juliane Hennecke (NZ Work Research Institute and Auckland University of Technology), Astrid Pape (FU Berlin)
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Commonly described as the “gender care gap“, there is a persistent gender difference in the division of child care and housework responsibilities within households in most developed countries. Existing literature on paternal child care involvement and parental leave take-up largely suffers from sample size and selection issues. This paper provides evidence on the effect of an ...

Local News, UGC and Professionals: Evidence from Citizen Journalism

Speaker: Jörg Claussen, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
Ort: Online seminar via Webex
Zeit:
13:15 - 14:30

Abstract:  User generated content is increasingly substituting content created by professionals. Local news that is generated by citizen journalists could be a promising way of supporting the struggling newspaper industry by reducing costs for professional journalists. We study a network of 122 local Austrian newspapers operating a hybrid model of citizen and professional journalism. We first ...

Temporary employment and the midlife nadir in human well-being

Speaker: Alan Piper, FU Berlin and Europa-Universität Flensburg
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Temporary employees rank lower than permanent employees on various measures of mental and physical health, including well-being. Furthermore, much research has indicated an approximate U-shape pattern between age and well-being with a nadir in midlife. Temporary employment may well have different associations with well-being across the lifespan, likely harming people in midlife more than at ...

Barriers to humanitarian migration, traumatic events and integration outcomes: Evidence from Germany

Speaker: Teresa Freitas-Monteiro (PhD Candidate, IAB), Lars Ludolph (PhD Candidate, LSE)
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

In this study we estimate the hidden cost of restrictive migration policies and highlight the need for health-related support among refugees. The traumatic events asylum seekers experience at origin due to exposure to violent conflict and during the journey to the EU may have lasting negative effects on their economic and social integration in the destination country. We hypothesize that ...

Summary:  This talk will provide a survey of several papers on the theory and practice of experimental design. I will compare different objectives (estimator precision, outcomes of participants, informing policy choice to maximize average outcomes, and informing policy choice to maximize utilitarian welfare), and their implications for experimental design. I will consider heuristic ...

Decomposition of Gender Pension Gaps Across Europe from a life-course perspective – preliminary drafts from sequence data analysis and Blinder-Oaxaca-Decompositions

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

My master thesis compares the impact of different life-courses on the Gender Pension Gaps across East and West Germany, Czechia and Italy. Using retrospective data on the dimensions of work and family from SHARELIFE, I contrast two different approaches. The first applies sequence data analysis to identify work-family life course patterns across all four countries as a first step, and includes ...

Optimal Benefit-Based Corporate Income Tax

Speaker: Simon Naitram, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 13:15 - 14:30

Abstract:   I derive an optimal benefit-based corporate tax rate formula as a function of the public input elasticity of profits and the (net of) tax elasticity of profits. I argue that the existence of the corporate income tax should be justified by the benefit-based view of taxation: firms should pay tax according to the benefits they receive from the use of the public input. I argue that ...

Prosociality and Risk Preferences in the Financial Sector

Speaker: Max Deter, University of Wuppertal
Ort: Conference Room 33002c nn
DIW Berlin
Room 3.3.002c
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Using large-scale data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP), this paper finds that financial professionals have a lower prosociality and riskier behavior than a control group. I interpret these findings using the person-organization fit theory, and thus, the compatibility between the employee's personality and the prevailing culture in their organization. The financial ...

Refugees and the resident populations' mental health

Speaker: Daniel Graeber
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

We estimate the effect of a sudden increase in the inflow of refugees on the native population’s mental health in Germany and Swiss. To identify the effect of the sudden influx of refugees to Germany and Swiss, we exploit the quasi-random allocation of the number of refugees to counties in Germany and Swiss. For Germany, we make use of the Socio-Economic Panel. For Swiss, we use individual ...

Self-Control: Determinants, Life Outcomes and Intergenerational Implications

Speaker: Daniel Kamhöfer, Düsseldorf Institute for Competition Economics and IZA
Ort: Conference Room 33002c nn
DIW Berlin
Room 3.3.002c
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper studies self-control in a nationally representative sample. Using the wellestablished Tangney scale to measure trait self-control, we find that people’s age as well as the political and economic institutions they are exposed to have an economically meaningful impact on their level of self-control. A higher degree of self-control is, in turn, associated with better ...
