The dynamics of informal and formal care supply to parents - a structural model

Speaker: Björn Fischer
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

In this paper, we estimate a structural dynamic discrete choice model of informal as well as formal care provision, retirement and labor supply. The model allows to assess the dynamic consequences of providing informal care or organizing formal care for parents, e.g., due to reduced wages, pension benefits, or benefits from long-term care insurance. Further, it allows to analyze counterfactual ...

Social Mobility and Economic Development

Speaker: Guido Neidhöfer, ZEW
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 13:15 - 14:30

We explore the role of social mobility as driver of economic development. First, we draw the geography of intergenerational mobility of education for 52 Latin American regions, as well as its evolution over time. Then, through a novel weighting procedure that considers the aggregate participation of cohorts to the economy in every year, we estimate the effect of changes in mobility on economic ...

Intergenerational Effects of Grandparental Care on Children and Parents

Speaker: Elena Ziege
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

Grandparents act as the third biggest care giver besides day care and parental care for children below the age of 6 in most OECD countries. Despite its relevance, the effects of child care provided by grandparents on child and parental outcomes have received little attention in the literature. We investigate the potential impact of grandparental care on children's ...

Women on the Move – Current Perspectives on Female Migration

Today, half of the world’s migrants are female, amounting to 114 million individuals in 2017. The intersection between migration and gender has profound consequences for individuals: gender affects, amongst others migration motifs, selection into migration, as well as decisions on destination countries. Further, the experiences in the host country are gender-specific and especially so when ...

The effects of personality on the native-migrant labour market gap

Speaker: Marli Guimarães Fernandes, Nova School of Business and Economics
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 15:00 - 16:00

This article quantifies differences in personality skills (Big Five Factor, locus of control, reciprocity, life goals and risk) and their assimilation rate between first-generation immigrants and native Germans, using the SOEP survey. The results reveal that the two groups differentiate in their personality traits but immigrants do not tend to assimilate natives during ...

Technological Change and Labor Market Opportunities

Speaker: Cäcilia Lipowski, ZEW Mannheim
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

The role of skill-biased technological change for increasing wage inequality is well documented. Interestingly, we find that even though in Germany from 1986 to 2012 wage inequality rose, the wage penalty of a disadvantaged family background declined. Our analysis shows that this development is consistently linked to technological progress. The introduction and the use of ...

Health Effects of Prenatal and Infancy Home Visiting Programs by Nurses: Evidence from a Randomized Control Trial

Speaker: Gabriella Conti, University College London
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 13:15 - 14:30

Home visiting programmes are increasingly being implemented across the globe to help vulnerable families with young children, however longer-term experimental evidence on their health impacts on both parents and children is scarce. In this paper we study the medium-term health impacts of a randomized control trial to evaluate the Nurse Family Partnership (NFP), one of the oldest home visitation ...

Culture, Children and Couple Gender Inequality

Speaker: Jonas Jessen
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper examines how culture determines within-couple gender inequality. Exploiting the setting of Germany's division and reunification, I compare child penalties of couples socialised in a more gender-egalitarian culture to those in a gender-traditional culture. The long-run penalty on the female income share is 30.9% in West German couples, compared to 18.3% in East German ...

Who is affected by the crisis? Distributional consequences of the Corona pandemic

Speaker: Maximilian Stockhausen, German Economic Institute - IW Köln
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

The Corona pandemic has had a decisive impact on the year 2020 and an unprecedented (negative) impact on society and the economy. At the core of this simulation study is therefore the question of how the Corona pandemic has affected income levels and social inequality in Germany, and to what extent automatic stabilizers of the social security system and additional financial ...

Responses to unexpected and permanent changes in pension income

Speaker: Sebastian Becker
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

For the design of pension reform it is crucial to disentangle the employment effects related to the substitution and the income effect. In this paper we provide causal evidence about the importance of the income effect which in general has been assumed to be small or non-existent. We exploit a pension reform in Germany that raised pension benefits related to children. For ...

A Mega-Analysis of Personality Prediction: Robustness and Boundary Conditions

Speaker: Emorie Beck, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
Location: Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

Decades of studies identify personality traits as an important predictor of life outcomes. However, previous investigations of personality-outcome associations have not taken a principled approach to covariate use or other sampling strategies to ensure the robustness of personality-outcome associations. The result is that it is unclear (1) ...

Gentrification and Rent Control

Speaker: Niklas Gohl
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

Since the start of the century, particularly in urban centres, housing markets worldwide have experienced stark price and rent increases. As a consequence urban agglomerations have experienced strong changes in their neighbourhood composition with originally poorer, central areas gentrifying quickly. Governments have reacted by raising the topic of affordable housing on the ...

Informal care, work and retirement - choices in conflict? A structural model

Speaker: Björn Fischer
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper estimates a structural dynamic discrete choice model on parental care provision, retirement and labor supply. We want to estimate the dynamic consequences of providing informal care or organizing formal care for care dependent parents. While there might be negative long term consequences on wages and retirement benefits, agents might respond to incentives in the long term care ...

Irrational Attention to Correlation in Selected Data

Speaker: Annekatrin Schrenker
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

It is very rare that the causal link between actions and outcomes can be observed directly. Often, it is much easier to observe correlation. To derive causality from correlation, economists use elaborate techniques. However, little is known about individuals’ capabilities to infer from correlational data in their everyday lives. I test if individuals erroneously infer ...

Long-Term Effects of Equal Sharing: Evidence from Inheritance Rules for Land

Speaker: Charlotte Bartels
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

What are the long-term economic effects of a more equal distribution of wealth? We exploit variation in historical inheritance rules for land traversing political, linguistic, geological, and religious borders in Germany. In some German areas, inherited land was to be shared or divided equally among children, while in others land was ruled to be indivisible. Using a geographic regression ...

Early retirement of employees in demanding jobs: evidence from a German pension reform

Speaker: Johannes Geyer
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

Workers in demanding jobs may be particularly negatively affected by an increasing statutory retirement age. We exploit a pension reform that raised the early retirement age of women from 60 to 63 years in Germany. Based on a large administrative social security data set we exploit the quasi-natural experiment using a regression-discontinuity approach. We find the same relative employment ...
