    Cluster-Seminar Public Finances and Living Conditions Teacher incentives and grade retention

    This paper provides a simple framework to test whether teachers strategically retain students in the first grade of primary school in order to minimize the number of students in their class for grades 2-4. I build a model in which classes are subject to a class size cap and teachers can choose to retain students if their performance falls below an academic threshold. The key prediction, borne out in administrative data for the German state Sachsen, is that grade retention rates increase monotonically with class size but drop sharply in the vicinity of the class-size cap because teachers expect that classes might be split if class size exceeds the class size cap in the next grade.

    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting China's economic policy future: state capitalism or strengthened market economy?

    The DIW Berlin and the OECD Berlin Centre cordially invite you to the Berlin Lunchtime Meeting.

    In China the strengthening of market mechanisms hoped for by western businesses is making only slow progress. Instead the state and the Communist Party are expanding their influence in the economy. This has consequences for China's economic policy. In the past decades this has led to growing overcapacities and indebtedness. Now China is aiming at global technological leadership. Is this approach a threat to the liberal order of the global economy?

    Dr. Max J. Zenglein, Senior Economist at MERICS, is working on sector-specific and macro-economic aspects of economic development in China, German-Chinese economic relations as well as the labour market and employment in China. Before joining MERICS Dr. Zenglein worked as an analyst at the German Chamber of Commerce (AHK) Greater China in Shenzhen, and later in Beijing. He finalised his university studies at the University of New York at Buffalo, the University of Economics and Law in Berlin, the University of Hong Kong and the University of Kassel with a doctorate in political economy focusing on China.

    Margit Molnar, Ph.D., is Senior Economist at the OECD’s Economics Department. She heads the China Desk of the Country Studies division in the Economics Department.

    Prof. Marcel Fratzscher, Ph.D., is President of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin), Professor of Macroeconomics and Finance at the Humboldt University Berlin, and Member of the Advisory Council of the Federal Ministry of Economics.

    The event language will be English.

    Wednesday, April 25, 2018 | 12:00 p.m. to 14:15 p.m.
    starting with a lunch snack at 12:00 p.m.

    The lecture starts at 13:00 p.m.

    We look forward to your participation, and request that you register at

    DIW Europe Lecture Strengthening the Euro Area Architecture
    Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund

    Following an outstanding private sector career in which she had served as the first Chairwoman of the international law firm Baker & McKenzie, Christine Lagarde joined the French Government in June 2005 as Trade Minister. After a brief stint as Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries, in June 2007 she became the first woman to hold the post of Finance and Economy Minister of a G-7 country. As Chair of the G-20 when France took over its presidency for the year 2011, she set in motion a wide-ranging work agenda on the reform of the international monetary system. On July 5, 2011, Christine Lagarde became the eleventh Managing Director of the IMF, the first woman in that position. In 2016, the IMF Executive Board selected her to serve for a second five-year term.

    The DIW Europe Lecture is a lecture series by leading policy-makers and academics on the future of Europe. The series aims at fostering and informing the debate on key European policy issues, and at bringing this debate to the heart of Germany's policy-making in Berlin. Previous Europe Lectures have been held by Mario Draghi, Barry Eichengreen and Lawrence H. Summers.
