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

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

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 ...
