Reform Priorities for Germany – an OECD Perspective

Speaker: Laurence Boone, Marcel Fratzscher
Location: Elinor Ostrom Hall
Room 1.2.019
Mohrenstr. 58
10117 Berlin

As the Germany economy has slowed sharply and is facing increasing trade uncertainty, advancing the reform agenda is key to revive economic growth and address inequality. A long-standing public investment backlog is holding back the take-up of new technologies, productivity and private investment.

Investment Losses and Inequality

Speaker: Johannes König
Location: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin

Systematic differences along the wealth distribution in investment performance will potentially have large consequences for the level and persistence of wealth inequality. These differences in performance are hard to measure except in a few, select countries with detailed information on household portfolios. In this paper we use a modified version of the Global Capital Asset Pricing Model ...

2D:4D and Economic Preferences in a Large Representative Sample of Germans

Speaker: Levent Neyse
Location: Besprechungsraum 33002c nn
DIW Berlin
Room 3.3.002c
Mohrenstr. 58
10117 Berlin

Over the last decade, there has been a growing interest in the association between 2D:4D, a putative marker for prenatal testosterone exposure, and economic preferences. The results are mixed, and part of the inconclusiveness may come from the typically limited sample sizes as well as the many “researcher degrees of freedom” in the analysis. To firmly test if 2D:4D is associated ...

Speaker: Sönke Matthewes (WZB)
Location: Anna J. Schwartz Room
Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58
10117 Berlin

This study estimates mean and distributional effects of early between-school ability tracking on student achievement. For identification, I exploit heterogeneity in tracking regimes between German federal states. After comprehensive primary school, about 40% of students are selected for the academic track and taught in separate schools in all states. The remaining students, however, are either ...
