Technological Change and Labor Market Opportunities

Speaker: Cäcilia Lipowski, ZEW Mannheim
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

The role of skill-biased technological change for increasing wage inequality is well documented.

Our analysis shows that this development is consistently linked to technological progress. The introduction and the use of ...

Culture, Children and Couple Gender Inequality

Speaker: Jonas Jessen
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper examines how culture determines within-couple gender inequality. Exploiting the setting of Germany's division and reunification, I compare child penalties of couples socialised in a more gender-egalitarian culture to those in a gender-traditional culture. The long-run penalty on the female income share is 30.9% in West German couples, compared to 18.3% in East German ...

Responses to unexpected and permanent changes in pension income

Speaker: Sebastian Becker
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30 - 13:30

For the design of pension reform it is crucial to disentangle the employment effects related to the substitution and the income effect. In this paper we provide causal evidence about the importance of the income effect which in general has been assumed to be small or non-existent.
