    A question of gender: How promotions affect earnings

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    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. ...

    Mothers Working during Preschool Years and Child Skills. Does Income Compensate?

    Speaker: Emma Tominey, University of York
    Location: Anna J. Schwartz Room
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 13:15 - 14:30

    Abstract: Increasing mothers’ labour supply in a child’s preschool years can cause a reduction in time investments that can lead to a negative direct effect on mid-childhood and teenage outcomes. As mothers’ work hours increase, income will rise and we ask whether income can compensate for the negative effect of hours by adopting a novel mediation analysis that exploits exogenous ...

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

    Speaker: Annekatrin Schrenker

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    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

    Speaker: Elsa Perdrix, Paris School of Economics
    Location: Anna J. Schwartz Room
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58

    Time: 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

    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 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 ...

    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    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. 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 ...

    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 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 ...
