Mohrenstr. 58

Zeit: 12:30 - 14:00

We study how different network targeting mechanisms affect the direct and spillover impacts of a school-based health intervention in Zambia. Across 133 schools, we randomly assigned whether the intervention was administered to i) a random selection of students; ii) most central students; or iii) most central students and an additional friend. Our results indicate that the two-hour intervention had ...

Does later retirement change your health care consumption? Evidence from France

Speaker: Elsa Perdrix, Paris School of Economics
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper examines the causal impact of later retirement on outpatient care consumption among the French elderly. Outpatient care are defined as all the care provided out of the hospital setting. This question is of interest since spill effects may arise if later retirement increases health care expenditures. To deal with reverse causality issue, I use, as an instrumental variable, the 1993 ...

Salience of Inherited Wealth and the Support for Inheritance Taxation

Speaker: Daniel Waldenström, Research Institute of Industrial Economics (IFN), Stockholm
Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 13.15 - 14.30

Abstract: We study how attitudes to inheritance taxation are influenced by information about the role of inherited wealth in society. Using a randomized experiment in a register-linked Swedish survey, we find that informing individuals about the large aggregate importance of inherited wealth and its link to inequality of opportunity significantly increases the support for inheritance taxation. The ...

Coping with Life-Event Shocks: Psychological Determinants of Resilience

Ort: Elinor Ostrom Hall
DIW Berlin
Mohrenstr. 58

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

In this research we investigate the psychological determinants of resilience. Specifically, we observe whether the adaptation process to negative life events is different across the distribution of personality traits (the so-called big five) and of different life attitudes (such as locus of control and risk aversion). We take into consideration two different areas of shocking events: the job ...

Evaluation of Bidding Groups in First-price Auctions

Ort: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Zeit: 10:30 - 11:30

Abstract: In this paper, we analyze bidding groups that participate in procurement auctions. Our main question is to ask, whether in the absence of the joint bid, there could have been two or more independent bids and if yes, these bids yield a different final outcome. We utilize data from the Austrian construction sector and estimate models of first-price sealed-bid auctions with endogenous entry ...

Zeit: 10:30 - 11:30

Abstract: We examine experimentally the impact of corporate social responsibility techniques on individuals’ performance and willingness to compete. Our baseline treatment adopts the Niederle-Vesterlund (2007) paradigm whereby individuals perform a task under piece-rate and tournament incentives, followed by an opportunity to determine which of the two payment schemes they prefer. In our ...

In line with the continuously carbon-intensive consumption patterns of our societies, the steel, cement and other basic materials still used in end-use sectors and products across our economies entail 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions and 2/3 of German industrial emissions. To avoid these emissions, material producers and users are proposing a portfolio of options, including clean production ...

Systematic differences along the wealth distribution in investment performance will potentially have large consequences for the level and persistence of wealth inequality. These differences in performance are hard to measure except in a few, select countries with detailed information on household portfolios. In this paper we use a modified version of the Global Capital Asset Pricing Model ...

(together with Thilo Albers (HU Berlin) und Moritz Schularick (Uni Bonn)) This paper provides the first long-run wealth inequality series for Germany.

2D:4D and Economic Preferences in a Large Representative Sample of Germans

Over the last decade, there has been a growing interest in the association between 2D:4D, a putative marker for prenatal testosterone exposure, and economic preferences. The results are mixed, and part of the inconclusiveness may come from the typically limited sample sizes as well as the many “researcher degrees of freedom” in the analysis. To firmly test if 2D:4D is associated ...

Zeit: 12:30 - 13:30

This study estimates mean and distributional effects of early between-school ability tracking on student achievement. For identification, I exploit heterogeneity in tracking regimes between German federal states. After comprehensive primary school, about 40% of students are selected for the academic track and taught in separate schools in all states. The remaining students, however, are either ...
