Mohrenstr. 58

Die Wirtschaft des 21. Jahrhunderts ist geprägt von einem neuen Phänomen: dem strukturellen Überschuss des privaten Sparwillens im Verhältnis zum privaten Investitionswillen. Dies gilt auch bei Prosperität und niedrigen Zinsen. Das ist einerseits vom Wunsch getrieben, im Alter über ein ausreichendes Vermögen zu verfügen. Andererseits nimmt die Nachfrage nach ...

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 ...

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.

Mohrenstraße 58

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.

Zeit: 11:00 - 11:30

Abstract:   The rise of dominant firms in data driven industries is often credited to their alleged data advantage. Empirical evidence lending support to this conjecture is lacking. In this paper, we show that data as an input into machine learning tasks displays features that favor the hypothesis that data is a source of market power. We study the search result quality for search keywords on ...

Abstract:   In online commerce, obfuscation strategies by sellers are hypothesized to mislead consumers to their detriment and to the profit of sellers. One such obfuscation strategy is partitioned pricing in which the price is split into a base price and add-on fees. While empirical evidence suggests that partitioned pricing impacts consumer decisions through salience effects, its consumer ...
