    In this paper we document how macroeconomic conditions affect the prices, provision, and quality of long-term care in Germany. We use a large administrative data set which contains rich information on all providers and the universe of recipients of long-term care. For the identification we exploit variation in the unemployment rate across regions and over time and use a panel data approach with ...

    A Star Was Born: How Workers Respond to Politically-Charged Job Postings (with Pawel Adrjan, Mária Balgová, Simon Jäger, and Jason Sockin)

    Speaker: Jonas Jessen
    Ort: Karl Popper Room

    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    While nouns in the German language are gendered toward males, the introduction of the "gender star" or "gender colon"' have allowed for nouns to be interpreted as not assigning gender, or non-binary. Their usage however has become highly politically polarizing. Using over 40 million online job postings from 2016 to 2023, we document the rising prevalence of the gender star and colon in the German ...

    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    This research investigates the relationship between perceived economic mobility and populist support, focusing on the US and Germany. Amidst an escalating wave of populism that challenges democratic institutions in the West, it explores whether low upward mobility fuels the perception of exclusion in a system that favors a select 'establishment’. To test a causal relationship, a survey experiment ...

    Age-specific Effects of Early Daycare on Children's Health

    Speaker: Mara Barschkett
    Ort: Anna-J.-Schwartz-Raum
    DIW Berlin
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Over the past decades, the share of very young children in daycare has increased significantly in many OECD countries, including Germany. Despite the relevance of child health for child development and later life success, the effect of early daycare attendance on health has received little attention in the economic literature. In this study, I investigate the impact of a large daycare expansion in ...

    Better Early than Never – The Effects of Anticipated Gift Tax Changes on Business Transfers

    Speaker: Richard Winter, University of Mannheim
    Ort: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    Wealth transfer taxes are important instruments to counter increasing wealth inequality. Yet, inter-generational business transfers, whose distribution is particularly concentrated at the top, are inherently difficult to tax. This is due to preferential tax treatments in many countries and sophisticated tax avoidance strategies by business owners. We analyze how business transfers react to ...

    Local far-right demonstrations and nationwide public attitudes

    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    One of the primary objectives of protests and demonstrations is to bring social, political, or economic issues to the attention of politicians and the wider population. While protests can have a mobilizing and persuading effect, they may reduce support for their cause if turned disruptive or disorganised. In this study, we look at how local or spontaneously organized far-right and xenophobic ...

    Zeit: 12:30 - 14:00

    Aktuell wird die Europäische Gebäuderichtline novelliert. Es scheint dabei wahrscheinlich, dass die EU-Kommission die Staaten mit der Einführung von energetischen Mindesteffizienzstandards (Minimum Energy Performance Standards, MEPS) für Nichtwohngebäude beauftragen wird. Dieses Instrument sieht vor, dass zu einem definierten Zeitpunkt (z.B. bis 2030) ein bestimmter Anteil der Bestandsgebäude, die ...

    Migration and native health: new evidence from employer-employee data

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    This paper evaluates the effects of immigration on health in the workplace. Using rich linked employer-employee data, I demonstrate that firms with a higher concentration of foreign workers experience lower rates of long-term sick leave among native employees. The effect on the total sick rate is smaller in magnitude. The results are consistent with foreign employment alleviating understaffing and ...

    Selective reporting of placebo tests in top economics journals

    Speaker: Yifan Yang, Stockholm School of Economics
    Ort: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    Placebo tests, where a null result is used to support the validity of the research design, is common in economics. Such tests provide an incentive to underreport statistically significant tests, a form of reversed p-hacking. Based on a pre-registered analysis plan, we test for such underreporting in all papers meeting our inclusion criteria (n=377) published in 11 top economics journals between 20 ...

    The acquisitions of startups by Google, Amazon, Meta, Amazon and Microsoft have steadily increased over the past years and have become more diversified. The current discussion about strategic motives for such acquisitions is vivid – especially in light of present concerns about the market power of gatekeepers, faster technological advances and digitalization. The principal question remains whether ...

    This study examines how conditional aid eligibility influences students’ application behaviors using extensive data from the French national application platform, Admission Post Bac (APB). Employing a generalized difference-in differences approach, we analyze the impact of an exogenous change in the income threshold for financial aid eligibility. Our primary focus is on high-achieving students, a ...

    CANCELED: Ethnic segregation in a stratified school system: Does ability tracking hamper ‘white flight’ from local schools?

    Speaker: Hanno Kruse, University of Bonn
    Ort: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 13:30-14:30

    Research on parental school choice provides strong evidence of so-called ‘white flight’ – that ethnic majority parents avoid choosing a local school if it contains large numbers of ethnic minority students. In this study, we examine such segregating choices in a formally stratified school system. Theoretically, we argue that segregating choices are less common in an educational setting where ...

    Relief through software? A linear probability model on the relationship between digitalization, semi-automation and work intensity in acute nursing care

    Speaker: Julia Bringmann, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
    Ort: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Zeit: 12:30-13:30

    This study asks how work intensity differs between nurses that work in three different hospital settings: 1) non-digitalized hospital, 2) digitalized hospital and 3) digitalized+semi-automated hospital. Theoretical and political expectations are that nurses experience less work intensity with higher digital maturity of the hospital. The digital transformation of hospitals is a current political ...

    Zeit:

    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B + 3.3.002C

    International trade separates the location where emissions occur (production) and where they are ultimately consumed. Thus, a substantial share of emissions is embodied in international trade. Moreover, firms within narrowly defined industries differ in their emission intensity. However, most firm-level studies only consider the direct emissions released during the production process. In this ...

    Local Currency Pricing by Firms: Evidence from China’s Renminbi (RMB) Reforms

    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B + 3.3.002C

    This paper examines the impact of RMB internationalization reforms on invoicing currency choices of firms exporting to China. Using detailed French customs data spanning 2011-2017, it documents three novel stylized facts on RMB adoption and suggests a novel mechanism that drives the self-selection of firms into RMB invoicing. Additionally, it provides causal estimates of the impact of RMB use on ...

    Stock market participation jumped upwards in Germany in the year 2020 by about 25%. A major cause for this was the enforced use of remote work. We show this by repeating a benchmark study with demanding data requests and adding remote work to the explanatory variables. Moreover, we implement an instrumental variables estimation based on commuting distance and work-from- home capacity. The ...
