We utilize extremely rich registry data that allows us to estimate the effect of gender on labor force participation in sibling fixed effects models, and study how the ...

Time: 13:15-14:45

[World] Cobb-Douglas (CD thereafter) aggregate production function is deemed too restrictive. Estimation of the CD technology with constant coefficients indeed provided very little flexibility in explaining the production process across the countries. Even if the parameters of the CD production function are allowed to vary across predefined regions (parts of the world), they are ad hoc ...

The effect of unemployment insurance on exit from employment

Speaker: Conny Wunsch, University St. Gallen

DIW Berlin im Quartier 110
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin
Time: 13:15-14:45

Abstract: We investigate whether changes in the generosity of unemployment insurance (UI) affect exit from employment via UI. We exploit a recent reform of German UI that drastically reduced maximum benefit periods for workers aged 45 or older. Economic theory suggests that less generous UI makes employed workers more eager to keep their job, implying a reduction in unemployment entry after the ...

We provide evidence that ...

Time: 13:15-14:45

Abstract: We establish the existence of strong media slant against foreign owners.

This quantitative slant is accompanied by qualitative slant; newspapers report in a more negative way about ...

Risk attitudes, Development and Growth.
Evidence from Experiments in 28 Countries

Abstract: We measure risk attitudes across 28 different countries in a controlled, fully incentivized experiment. The results contribute to building bridges between different strands of literature. First and foremost, we show that risk attitudes vary considerably between countries. For typical experimental stakes, risk seeking or neutrality is just as frequent as risk aversion. Looking at a cross ...
