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 ...

Optimal Benefit-Based Corporate Income Tax

Speaker: Simon Naitram, University of the West Indies, Barbados
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
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
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 ...

Making a nation-wide randomized field experiment:
Lessons from the Finnish basic income trial

Ort: Elinor Ostrom Hall
DIW Berlin
Mohrenstr. 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:00 - 14:00

The original goal of the Finnish experiment of 2017 and 2018 was to try to get some evidence on how a new social policy instrument mimicking a basic income would work and what kind of behavioral consequences it would have. The realized experiment was restricted to people aged 25–58 already receiving a labor market subsidy or unemployment allowance and a total of 2,000 participants were ...

Room 3.3.002c
Mohrenstraße 58

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

We present an approach for studying three quality issues related to survey data, namely the detection of interviewer misbehaviour, the correct implementation of the questionnaire programming and possible redundant paths, which lead to case numbers hindering feasible statistical analysis. The idea is using a theoretical graph model for describing all possible paths through ...

A firm-side perspective on parental leave

Speaker: Mathias Huebener
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

A large literature documents effects of parental leave on mothers' labour market outcomes, yet we know very little about the effects on their  firms and co-workers. We use unique administrative data that covers the universe of employees subject to social security and firms in Germany to address this question. We first establish some novel stylised facts in parental leave-taking  with ...

From workers to capitalists in less than two generations: A study of Chinese urban elite transformation between 1988 and 2013

Room 3.3.002c
Mohrenstraße 58

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Economic and social transformation of China during the past 40 years is without precedent in human history. While the economic transformation was extensively studied, social transformation was not. In this paper, we use for the first time harmonized household surveys covering the period 1988-2013 to study the changes in the characteristics of the richest 5 percent of China’s urban ...

Knowledge Spillover and Individual Careers

Speaker: Thomas Cornelissen, University of York
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 13:15 - 14:30

Abstract: Through social interaction in the workplace, coworkers are likely to learn from each other (knowledge spillover) and this may extend the returns to firm-provided training from trained workers onto untrained coworkers. Based on German matched-employer employee data covering the universe of employees we investigate whether unskilled workers derive long-term career benefits if they were ...

The effect of xenophobic attacks on refugees’ mental health

Speaker: Felicitas Schikora
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

The high prevalence of forced migration in recent years has induced a shift in attitudes towards immigrants and refugees and, in turn, increasing xenophobic violence. We address this topic and estimate the effect of xenophobic attacks against refugee shelters on refugees’ mental health. For this purpose, we combine two innovative data sets: administrative records on xenophobic crime by ...

A question of gender: How promotions affect earnings

Speaker: Aline Zucco
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Occupational positions can explain an important part of the differences in pay between men and women. However, a considerable Gender Pay Gap exists even within the same occupational position. In this paper, we aim at understanding the reason for the gap within occupational positions and, therefore, investigate whether promotions lead to the same effect on earnings growth for men and women. ...

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

(together with Fabian Kosse and Armin Falk) In this project we investigate the determinants of locus of control using data from the BRIQ Family Panel. Particular interest lies in the effectiveness of a one year mentoring intervention which targeted low SES children at the age of 7 to 9.We find that the mentoring intervention had no effect on locus of control in the first 5 waves ...

Mothers Working during Preschool Years and Child Skills. Does Income Compensate?

Speaker: Emma Tominey, University of York
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 13:15 - 14:30

Abstract: Increasing mothers’ labour supply in a child’s preschool years can cause a reduction in time investments that can lead to a negative direct effect on mid-childhood and teenage outcomes. As mothers’ work hours increase, income will rise and we ask whether income can compensate for the negative effect of hours by adopting a novel mediation analysis that exploits exogenous ...

Average Wage Gaps and Expected Wage Cuts - An Investigation of Selection Neglect Bias in Income Expectations

Speaker: Annekatrin Schrenker
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Economists spend much of their lives talking about and correcting for sample selection. Recent evidence from behavioral economics documents that participants in lab experiments don't account for selection effects when they interpret conditional distributions. This "selection neglect" can distort expectations in settings where individuals learn from comparisons with other people who differ in ...

The New Top-Wealth Sample - First Impressions

Speaker: Johannes König, Carsten Schröder
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:00 - 13:00

Top-wealth holders are typically underrepresented or completely missing in population surveys. The lack of comprehensive national registers on high-wealth individuals in many countries challenged previous attempts to remedy this under-representation. In a novel research design, we draw on public data on the shareholding structures of companies as a sampling frame. Our design builds on the ...
