Frauen erwarten geringere Lohnsteigerungen als Männer

Basierend auf Auswertungen repräsentativer Umfragedaten zeigt dieser Wochenbericht, dass sich Frauen und Männer in ihren Erwartungen über Lohnentwicklungen deutlich unterscheiden, vor allem bezüglich ihrer langfristigen Erwartungen (über zehn Jahre). Die stärksten geschlechtsspezifischen Unterschiede treten für die Gruppe der jungen Befragten mit hohem Bildungsabschluss auf, die

Nachbesserungen beim Klimapaket richtig, aber immer noch unzureichend – CO2-Preise stärker erhöhen und Klimaprämie einführen

Im Dezember 2019 haben Bund und Länder nach anhaltender Kritik das im September beschlossene Klimapaket nachgebessert: Die CO2-Preise wurden erhöht und die EEG-Umlage stärker gesenkt. Doch trotz dieser Anpassungen werden der vorgeschlagene CO2-Preispfad und der anschließende Emissionshandel mit festgelegter Preisobergrenze als alleinige Instrumente immer noch nicht ausreichen, um die Klimaziele 20

Does Subsidized Care for Toddlers Increase Maternal Labor Supply?

Expanding public or publicly subsidized childcare has been a top social policy priority in many industrialized countries. It is supposed to increase fertility, promote children’s development and enhance mothers’ labor market attachment. In this paper, we analyze the causal effect of one of the largest expansions of subsidized childcare for children up to three years among industrialized countries

The Rising Longevity Gap by Lifetime Earnings: Distributional Implications for the Pension System

This study uses German social security records to provide novel evidence on cohort trends of the heterogeneity in life expectancy by lifetime earnings and, additionally, documents the distributional implications of this earnings-related heterogeneity. We find a strong association between lifetime earnings and life expectancy at age 65 and show that the longevity gap is increasing across cohorts.

A question of gender: How promotions affect earnings

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.

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

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

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

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

Investment Losses and Inequality

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

Wealth inequality in Germany, 1895-2017

(together with Thilo Albers (HU Berlin) und Moritz Schularick (Uni Bonn)) This paper provides the first long-run wealth inequality series for Germany. We combine wealth tax data, survey data, national accounts' household balance sheets, and lists of large wealth holders to study the accumulation and distribution of wealth in Germany from 1895 to 2017. We find that wealth concentration in

Dossier Grundeinkommen

Bei Debatten über die Zukunft des Sozialstaates spielt seit einigen Jahren vor allem die Idee eines bedingungslosen Grundeinkommens eine zunehmende Rolle. Danach würde jede Bürgerin und jeder Bürger – vom Empfänger von Grundsicherungsleistungen bis hin zu Spitzenverdienenden – regelmäßig einen festen Betrag erhalten, der durch Steuern zu
