    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 ...

We find that wealth concentration in ...

    This study estimates mean and distributional effects of early between-school ability tracking on student achievement.

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 ...

    Current research on maternal and parental leave focuses on leave take-up and employment outcomes, finding that short leaves have beneficial labor market outcomes.

    Time: 12:30 - 13:30

    Using a reform induced increase in the ERA for German women this paper uncovers causal effects of retirement on informal care provision. Studies so far focus on the causality of labor supply on informal care activity in the middle part of an individual’s working career, mostly neglecting effects of retirement. This paper uses the 1999 reform that abolished the ERA at age 60 for women ...

    At the end of World War II, 40% of the pre-arranged Soviet occupation zone in Germany was under the control of the Allied Expeditionary Force. This occupation was very short-lived and the Red Army gained full control of the Soviet zone less than two months after the German surrender. However, this paper shows that the brief Allied occupation systematically increased opposition to the budding ...
