Common Ownership Patterns in the European Banking Sector – The Impact of the Financial Crisis

We provide a description of ownership patterns in the top 25 European banks for the period 2003–2015, where we especially focus on the global financial crisis. Investment managers, such as Blackrock, are dominant in terms of number of block holdings in different banks, maintaining fairly stable “common ownership” networks throughout our sample. However, the financial crisis led ...

The rise of common ownership: Europe vs the US

Speaker: Nuria Boot, DIW Berlin and KU Leuven
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit:
11:00 - 11:30

Common ownership - when an investor holds shares in two companies - has recently attracted significant attention from policy-makers and researchers, studying mainly US firms. European firms, however, are different as top investors with large stakes, like governments, founding families and foundations are much more prevalent. This paper takes a well-known common ownership measure derived from ...

Technological Change and Labor Market Opportunities

Speaker: Cäcilia Lipowski, ZEW Mannheim
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

The role of skill-biased technological change for increasing wage inequality is well documented. Interestingly, we find that even though in Germany from 1986 to 2012 wage inequality rose, the wage penalty of a disadvantaged family background declined. Our analysis shows that this development is consistently linked to technological progress. The introduction and the use of new ...

Home visiting programmes are increasingly being implemented across the globe to help vulnerable families with young children, however longer-term experimental evidence on their health impacts on both parents and children is scarce. In this paper we study the medium-term health impacts of a randomized control trial to evaluate the Nurse Family Partnership (NFP), one of the oldest home visitation ...

Culture, Children and Couple Gender Inequality

Speaker: Jonas Jessen
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper examines how culture determines within-couple gender inequality. Exploiting the setting of Germany's division and reunification, I compare child penalties of couples socialised in a more gender-egalitarian culture to those in a gender-traditional culture. The long-run penalty on the female income share is 30.9% in West German couples, compared to 18.3% in East German couples. ...

The Corona pandemic has had a decisive impact on the year 2020 and an unprecedented (negative) impact on society and the economy. At the core of this simulation study is therefore the question of how the Corona pandemic has affected income levels and social inequality in Germany, and to what extent automatic stabilizers of the social security system and additional financial aid measures ...

Responses to unexpected and permanent changes in pension income

Speaker: Sebastian Becker
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

For the design of pension reform it is crucial to disentangle the employment effects related to the substitution and the income effect. In this paper we provide causal evidence about the importance of the income effect which in general has been assumed to be small or non-existent. We exploit a pension reform in Germany that raised pension benefits related to children. For the ...

A Mega-Analysis of Personality Prediction: Robustness and Boundary Conditions

Speaker: Emorie Beck, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
Ort: Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Decades of studies identify personality traits as an important predictor of life outcomes. However, previous investigations of personality-outcome associations have not taken a principled approach to covariate use or other sampling strategies to ensure the robustness of personality-outcome associations. The result is that it is unclear (1) whether ...

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

Since the start of the century, particularly in urban centres, housing markets worldwide have experienced stark price and rent increases.

Informal care, work and retirement - choices in conflict? A structural model

Speaker: Björn Fischer

This paper estimates a structural dynamic discrete choice model on parental care provision, retirement and labor supply. We want to estimate the dynamic consequences of providing informal care or organizing formal care for care dependent parents. While there might be negative long term consequences on wages and retirement benefits, agents might respond to incentives in the long term care ...

Irrational Attention to Correlation in Selected Data

Speaker: Annekatrin Schrenker
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

It is very rare that the causal link between actions and outcomes can be observed directly. Often, it is much easier to observe correlation. To derive causality from correlation, economists use elaborate techniques. However, little is known about individuals’ capabilities to infer from correlational data in their everyday lives. I test if individuals erroneously infer causality ...

Long-Term Effects of Equal Sharing: Evidence from Inheritance Rules for Land

Speaker: Charlotte Bartels
Ort: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

What are the long-term economic effects of a more equal distribution of wealth? We exploit variation in historical inheritance rules for land traversing political, linguistic, geological, and religious borders in Germany. In some German areas, inherited land was to be shared or divided equally among children, while in others land was ruled to be indivisible. Using a geographic regression ...
