    Stock market participation, remote work, and inequality

    Speaker: Lorenz Meister
    Location: Ferdinand Friedensburg Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.001
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Stock market participation jumped upwards in Germany in the year 2020 by about 25%. A major cause for this was the enforced use of remote work. We show this by repeating a benchmark study with demanding data requests and adding remote work to the explanatory variables. Moreover, we implement an instrumental variables estimation based on commuting distance and work-from- home capacity. The ...

    Reproducibility and Household Panel Studies: Insights from the SOEP

    Speaker: Levent Neyse
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:00-13:00

    The ongoing replicability and reproducibility crisis in the social sciences has revealed the importance of transparency, replications, and good scientific practice in the field of economics. But replication studies are scarce, innovations in these areas have not been sufficiently tested and scientific practices vary among researchers. Household panel studies offer a lot to behavioral economists ...

    Pension and Long-Term Care Expectations: Evidence from Germany

    Speaker: Bruno Veltri (HU Berlin), Maximilian Blesch
    Location: Joan Robinson Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 3.3.002a
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Two significant drivers of a person's financial situation in old age are pension income and costs for long-term care dependence. Both are unknown when the person makes her most important financial decisions, which makes it particularly interesting to understand her beliefs about them and how they influence her choices. In a representative survey, we elicit detailed expectations about individuals ...

    Subjective Well-being as a Complex System: A Psychometric Network Analysis Perspective

    Speaker: Bernd Schäfer, Ruhr-Universität Bochum
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    Subjective well-being (SWB) is a complex multidimensional construct with manifold positive implications. However, research on the structure of SWB faces some challenges, as empirical results regarding the popular tripartite model of SWB are inconclusive, and domain satisfaction is often not sufficiently considered when analyzing the structure of SWB. Furthermore, since the different SWB components ...

    Gender differences and stereotypes in media coverage of company board members

    Room 3.3.002a
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Women continue to be underrepresented in leadership positions in the corporate sector such as on company boards. One of the reasons for this underrepresentation are gender stereotypes on the skill distribution, social and occupational roles, personality traits, and how they affect labor market decision making. Media plays an important role in transporting gender stereotypes. In this paper we ...

    Time: 12:30-13:30

    joint with Alexander Schmidt-Catran, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt This study analyses the impact of a high-profile crime event on perceived public safety. At the 2015 New Year's Eve celebrations in Cologne (NYE), Germany, refugees allegedly committed thousands of crimes, ranging from theft to sexual assault. The widespread media coverage of these incidents has made a shift in the publics’ ...

    Short-time Work vs. Unemployment: Gendered Differences in Labour Market Outcomes

    Speaker: Clara Schäper
    Location: Ferdinand Friedensburg Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.001
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    In the recent economic crises, Germany has made use of job retention schemes and in particular short-time work benefits ('Kurzarbeit') to tackle shocks in labor demand. Under these schemes, workers have not been laid off and received unemployment benefits, but reduced their working hours (or stopped working) for a limited amount of time while receiving short-time leave benefits. While the effect ...

    The Gender (Tax) Gap in Parental Transfers. Evidence from administrative inheritance and gift tax data.

    Speaker: Daria Tisch, Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies
    Location: Anna J. Schwartz Room
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30 bis 13:30 Uhr

    This study examines how inheritance and gift tax systems in combination with gendered parental transfer behavior strengthen gender wealth inequalities. Gender differences in transfers can be reproduced if men benefit differently than women from tax exemptions. This might happen when men and women receive different types of assets where only some are tax exempted. To investigate gendered parental ...

    Increasing disability benefits: selection and labor market effects.

    Location: Anna J. Schwartz Room
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11 bis 12 Uhr

    We study the incentive and labor market effects of disability benefit programs using unique policy variation in Germany. In 2014, disability benefits of new recipients were increased considerably while eligibility criteria were not changed. We exploit this quasi-experimental policy variation to test the implications at two different margins. First, we analyze to what extent an increase in the ...

    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:00-13:00

    Pension funds carry implications on citizens wellbeing in their retirement years and countries’ growths, rendering changes to them following natural disasters of great importance. Using administrative data that comprises a 10 percent random sample of the Australian population and a natural experimental design, we investigate the effects of natural disasters on retirement savings in the aftermath ...

    DIW Berlin
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11 bis 12 Uhr

    This paper investigates the unique ways in which individuals assimilate new information into their beliefs about stock returns and examines the consequences of heterogeneous information processing on savings and investment decisions. Utilizing two exogenous information treatments from 2017 and 2018 surveys of German households, I discover that individuals' short-term return expectations shift by ...

    Time: 12:30-13:30

    -- joint with Marius Liebald and Guido Friebel Can right-wing terrorism increase support for far-right populist parties, and if so, why? Exploiting quasi-random variation between successful and failed attacks across German municipalities, we find that successful attacks lead to significant increases in the vote share for the right-wing, populist Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party.

    -- joint with Panu Poutvaara and Max Steinhardt This study analyzes the determinants of bitterness, which describes a feeling of not having achieved what one deserves compared to others.

    Mehrere thematische Analysen von empirica im Verlauf der letzten 15 Jahre (u.a. zur Kriminalitätsfurcht, Kindergesundheit, Einsamkeit) haben gezeigt, dass neben individuellen Merkmalen – insbesondere sozialen Merkmalen – auch räumliche/nachbarschaftliche Einflussfaktoren auf das Wohlbefinden oder die Gesundheit von Menschen festgestellt werden können.

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

    Policymakers widely use tax-based incentives to spur investment and stimulate economic growth. Tax policy has been at the center of emergency measures during the Covid-19 pandemic, and it is now as countries face a significant deterioration in public finances. Yet, empirical tax research is still in disagreement on how taxes affect business investment. We investigate the effect of local business ...

    Time: 12:30-13:30

    This study uses administrative data on the universe of students in tertiary education in Germany and shows that university enrollment depends negatively on the local unemployment rate at high school graduation. This finding contradicts common evidence on countercyclical US undergraduate enrollment. Students' financial dependency and loan aversion suggest reduced parental income as dominant ...
