    The Church of Resistance – Religion and Protests in an Autocracy

    Speaker: Max Deter, Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Mass protests have long been recognized as effective political actions, particularly in autocratic regimes where they serve as a potent tool for opposition movements. This paper examines the case of East Germany, specifically the Peaceful Revolution of 1989, which stands out as a rare example where protests successfully contributed to the democratization of an autocracy. The study focuses on the ...

    The Persistence of Employment Gaps in Couples: To what extent do relative female-to-male wage opportunities matter?

    Speaker: Luisa Hammer
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Gender gaps in employment have narrowed but remain substantial, especially within couples. When I proxy potential earnings through demand-driven wage changes in job tasks within industries and using German administrative data, I show that a rising relative female-to-male potential wage increases work hours of female partners, but at a diminishing rate. Men, on the other hand, reduce their work ...

    Fog or Smog? The Impact of Uncensored Reporting on Pollution on Individuals' Environmental Awareness

    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    This paper analyzes the effect of exposure to foreign mass media on environmental awareness and pro-environmental behavior. We exploit a natural experiment occurring in the German Democratic Republic, where the reception of West German television was determined by geographic characteristics. Western media was a reliable source of information about environmental pollution in the German Democratic ...

    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 10:45 bis 11:45 Uhr

    In this paper we document how macroeconomic conditions affect the prices, provision, and quality of long-term care in Germany. We use a large administrative data set which contains rich information on all providers and the universe of recipients of long-term care. For the identification we exploit variation in the unemployment rate across regions and over time and use a panel data approach with ...

    A Star Was Born: How Workers Respond to Politically-Charged Job Postings (with Pawel Adrjan, Mária Balgová, Simon Jäger, and Jason Sockin)

    Speaker: Jonas Jessen
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    While nouns in the German language are gendered toward males, the introduction of the "gender star" or "gender colon"' have allowed for nouns to be interpreted as not assigning gender, or non-binary. Their usage however has become highly politically polarizing. Using over 40 million online job postings from 2016 to 2023, we document the rising prevalence of the gender star and colon in the German ...

    Economic Mobility Perceptions and Populist Support

    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    This research investigates the relationship between perceived economic mobility and populist support, focusing on the US and Germany. Amidst an escalating wave of populism that challenges democratic institutions in the West, it explores whether low upward mobility fuels the perception of exclusion in a system that favors a select 'establishment’. To test a causal relationship, a survey experiment ...

    Age-specific Effects of Early Daycare on Children's Health

    Speaker: Mara Barschkett
    Location: Anna-J.-Schwartz-Raum
    DIW Berlin
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Over the past decades, the share of very young children in daycare has increased significantly in many OECD countries, including Germany. Despite the relevance of child health for child development and later life success, the effect of early daycare attendance on health has received little attention in the economic literature. In this study, I investigate the impact of a large daycare expansion in ...

    Better Early than Never – The Effects of Anticipated Gift Tax Changes on Business Transfers

    Speaker: Richard Winter, University of Mannheim
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    Wealth transfer taxes are important instruments to counter increasing wealth inequality. Yet, inter-generational business transfers, whose distribution is particularly concentrated at the top, are inherently difficult to tax. This is due to preferential tax treatments in many countries and sophisticated tax avoidance strategies by business owners. We analyze how business transfers react to ...

    Local far-right demonstrations and nationwide public attitudes

    Speaker: Christopher Prömel, Freie Universität Berlin
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    One of the primary objectives of protests and demonstrations is to bring social, political, or economic issues to the attention of politicians and the wider population. While protests can have a mobilizing and persuading effect, they may reduce support for their cause if turned disruptive or disorganised. In this study, we look at how local or spontaneously organized far-right and xenophobic ...

    Migration and native health: new evidence from employer-employee data

    Speaker: Izabela Wnuk
    Location: Anna-J.-Schwartz-Raum
    DIW Berlin
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    This paper evaluates the effects of immigration on health in the workplace. Using rich linked employer-employee data, I demonstrate that firms with a higher concentration of foreign workers experience lower rates of long-term sick leave among native employees. The effect on the total sick rate is smaller in magnitude. The results are consistent with foreign employment alleviating understaffing and ...

    Selective reporting of placebo tests in top economics journals

    Speaker: Yifan Yang, Stockholm School of Economics
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    Placebo tests, where a null result is used to support the validity of the research design, is common in economics. Such tests provide an incentive to underreport statistically significant tests, a form of reversed p-hacking. Based on a pre-registered analysis plan, we test for such underreporting in all papers meeting our inclusion criteria (n=377) published in 11 top economics journals between 20 ...

    Closing the Gaps? The Impact of Student Aid Eligibility on Application Behavior to Higher Education

    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 13:30 bis 14:30 Uhr

    This study examines how conditional aid eligibility influences students’ application behaviors using extensive data from the French national application platform, Admission Post Bac (APB). Employing a generalized difference-in differences approach, we analyze the impact of an exogenous change in the income threshold for financial aid eligibility. Our primary focus is on high-achieving students, a ...

    CANCELED: Ethnic segregation in a stratified school system: Does ability tracking hamper ‘white flight’ from local schools?

    Speaker: Hanno Kruse, University of Bonn
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 13:30-14:30

    Research on parental school choice provides strong evidence of so-called ‘white flight’ – that ethnic majority parents avoid choosing a local school if it contains large numbers of ethnic minority students. In this study, we examine such segregating choices in a formally stratified school system. Theoretically, we argue that segregating choices are less common in an educational setting where ...

    Relief through software? A linear probability model on the relationship between digitalization, semi-automation and work intensity in acute nursing care

    Speaker: Julia Bringmann, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    This study asks how work intensity differs between nurses that work in three different hospital settings: 1) non-digitalized hospital, 2) digitalized hospital and 3) digitalized+semi-automated hospital. Theoretical and political expectations are that nurses experience less work intensity with higher digital maturity of the hospital. The digital transformation of hospitals is a current political ...
