Local News, UGC and Professionals: Evidence from Citizen Journalism

Speaker: Jörg Claussen, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time:
13:15 - 14:30

Optimal Benefit-Based Corporate Income Tax

Speaker: Simon Naitram, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill
Location: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Time: 13:15 - 14:30

Abstract:   I derive an optimal benefit-based corporate tax rate formula as a function of the public input elasticity of profits and the (net of) tax elasticity of profits. I argue that the existence of the corporate income tax should be justified by the benefit-based view of taxation: firms should pay tax according to the benefits they receive from the use of the public input. I argue that ...

Knowledge Spillover and Individual Careers

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

Abstract: Through social interaction in the workplace, coworkers are likely to learn from each other (knowledge spillover) and this may extend the returns to firm-provided training from trained workers onto untrained coworkers. Based on German matched-employer employee data covering the universe of employees we investigate whether unskilled workers derive long-term career benefits if they were ...

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 ...

Salience of Inherited Wealth and the Support for Inheritance Taxation

Speaker: Daniel Waldenström, Research Institute of Industrial Economics (IFN), Stockholm
Location: Anna J. Schwartz Room
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 ...
