Medienbasierter Index zeigt: Epidemien bringen in der Regel dauerhafte wirtschaftliche Einbußen mit sich

Die Verbreitung des Corona-Virus trifft die Wirtschaft weltweit hart. Wie hart genau, ist jedoch schwer vorherzusehen. Prognosen über den Verlauf und die wirtschaftlichen Folgen von Epidemien sind auch deshalb sehr unsicher, weil es an entsprechenden Modellen für die Dynamik von Epidemien mangelt. Ein nachrichtenbasierter Epidemieindex, der Medienberichte für den Zeitraum von Januar...

Waiting for My Sentence: Air Pollution and the Productivity of Court Rulings

I assert that air pollution from nitrogen oxides affects the productivity of employees in Mexican court hearings. This is the first article analyzing this connection and the first to disentangle work-breaks from the productivity of white-collar workers. I merge hourly pollution with granular hearing data under the assumption that the length of the hearing approximates productivity and identify causality ...

Mehrheit der Geflüchteten hat höhere Bildung im Vergleich zur Herkunftsgesellschaft

Weniger Beachtung findet dagegen die Stellung, die diese Qualifikationen im jeweiligen Herkunftsland haben. In diesem Beitrag wird die mitgebrachte Bildung verschiedener Gruppen von Zugewanderten mit den Bildungsverteilungen des jeweiligen Herkunftslands und mit der Bildungsverteilung ...

Testing the Superstar Firm Hypothesis

The superstar firms model provides a compelling explanation for two simultaneously occurring phenomena: the rise of concentration in industries and the fall of labor shares. Our empirical analysis confirms two of the underlying assumptions of the model: the market share increases and the labor share decreases with increasing firm-level total factor productivity, providing support for the superstar ...

Refugees’ and Irregular Migrants’ Self-selection into Europe: Who Migrates Where?

We analyze self-selection of refugees and irregular migrants and test our theory in the context of the European refugee crisis. Using unique datasets from the International Organization for Migration and Gallup World Polls, we provide the first large-scale evidence on reasons to emigrate, and the self-selection and sorting of refugees and irregular migrants. Refugees and female irregular migrants are ...

An Investment in the Future: Institutional Aspects of Credential Recognition of Refugees in Germany

Adding to the rich literature on the economic integration of refugees, this article extends the scope towards the role of institutions by focusing on the transfer of human capital by means of credential recognition. The 2012 Federal Act of Recognition in Germany is a new institution that provides the possibility to study the transfer of human capital in depth. I argue that analysing the decision for ...

Transformational Strategies and Productivity Growth: A Transformational‐Activities Perspective on Stagnation in the New‐Normal Business Landscape

Declines in productivity growth substantially explain new‐normal business stagnation; yet in order to address situations of slack productivity growth, firms can choose from six generic transformational strategies: retirement, renewal, retrenchment, replication, redeployment, and recombination. While the extant literature focuses on specific transformational strategies that particular firms, or industries, ...
