    Local Unemployment and Postsecondary Education

    Speaker: Andreas Leibing

    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    This study uses administrative data on the universe of students in tertiary education in Germany and shows that university enrollment depends negatively on the local unemployment rate at high school graduation. This finding contradicts common evidence on countercyclical US undergraduate enrollment. Students' financial dependency and loan aversion suggest reduced parental income as dominant ...

    Unexpected crises, such as armed conflicts, natural disasters and pandemics require immediate government decisions on how to act to protect the population. The COVID-19 pandemic was the worst sudden onset global crisis since the Second World War, and highlighted tension between civil liberties and public health objectives. How did attitudes towards democracy respond to restrictive policy ...

    Room 3.3.002b
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    The most popular method to acquire a job is to use one's circle of acquaintances or social networks to find a position. However, in the current research, there is still no clear conclusion if this job search method has positive implications for different job outcomes such as wages. This paper studies the effects of this job search approach in the context of Germany compared to the formal ...

Studies addressing this policy have found controversial ...

    Speaker: Sebastian Becker

    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    This paper exploits unique variation induced by two information treatments on a sample of German households in 2017 and 2018 to evaluate how subjective belief formation about stock market returns affects stock market participation and portfolio choice. I find that on average the information treatments do not shift individual expectations about returns significantly. Additionally, I show that ...

    Government Ownership and Competition: Evidence from the European Airline Industry following the COVID-19-Pandemic

    Speaker: Christina Stadler, DIW Berlin

    Time:

    Rooms 3.3.002A+B+C

    This paper empirically analyses the impact of government ownership on competition. The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent governmental equity interventions in the European airline industry provides for a particularly ideal setting to investigate this topic, and this for several reasons. First, airline markets and competition therein are well-defined and well-understood. Second, European countries ...

    Wage Dispersion and Life-Cycle Unemployment

    Speaker: Sunoong Hwang (presenter) and Juwon Kwak, Pukyong National University
    Location: Francine D. Blau Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 3.3.002b
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    Higher wage dispersion may induce unemployed workers to search longer for a job by increasing their reservation wages. This paper investigates the implications of this mechanism in a job search model featuring a finite work life, showing that a mean-preserving spread of the wage offer distribution could lead to a larger increase in reservation wages of younger than older workers because the ...

    The Long Run Impact of Expulsion of Germans (1944-1950) on Anti-Refugee Voting

    Speaker: Li Yang
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    The political consequences of refugees for receiving countries have received much attention in recent years and have sparked a burgeoning literature. However, evidence on the long-run consequences of refugees is lacking. The expulsion of 8 million Germans (so-called expellees) from Eastern Europe to post-WWII West Germany serves as a natural experiment that allows us to estimate the long-run ...

    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    Using recently published U.S. long-run microdata (SCF+), we document that — for people born in the first half of the 20th century — median wealth used to increase from one ten-year birth cohort to another. For people born in the second half, median wealth successively declined from cohort to cohort and wealth inequality within birth cohorts has markedly increased. Shifts in observable ...

    Sponsored Bids in Online Labor Markets

    Speaker: Jonas Hannane, DIW Berlin

    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Ferdinand Friedensburg Room 2.3.001

    Advertising on e-commerce platforms, which enables third-party sellers to place their products as sponsored listings within organic results, is a widespread phenomenon, creating large revenues for online marketplaces. While economic theory suggests that advertising can serve as a signal for product quality, the empirical evidence is ambiguous. In this project, I collect data from a leading online ...

    Speaker: Robin Sogalla, DIW Berlin, Robin Sogalla
    Location: Karl Popper Room

    10117 Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Karl Popper Room 2.3.020

    In the absence of globally coordinated action to combat climate change, governments are concerned that ambitious carbon pricing could harm the competitiveness of emission-intensive industries. A prominent measure to prevent that manufacturing producers relocate to countries with laxer environmental regulation are carbon border adjustments often referred to as carbon tariffs. Several studies have ...

    Unconditional Basic Income: from theory to practice

    Speaker: Eva Jacob, University of Strasbourg
    Location: Francine D. Blau Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 3.3.002b
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    This paper aims to investigate whether Van Parijs' theory of Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) can address the criticism of the lack of individual responsibility on the part of recipients. To do so, I relate this UBI theory to the results of field experiments that study the impact of UBI on employment. Theoretical and empirical results suggest that the UBI does not lead to a decrease in labor ...

    Promotion prospects and within-level wage growth: A decomposition of the part-time penalty

    Speaker: Boryana Ilieva
    Location: Ferdinand Friedensburg Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.001
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    The part-time wage penalty is a key contributor to the gender wage gap. In this paper, I study how the part-time penalty decomposes in a lack of promotions to higher paying levels of the career ladder and a lack of wage growth conditional on the career level. I develop a dynamic model of labor supply that distinctly features hierarchical wage structures and promotions. I estimate the ...

    Competition and Mergers with Strategic Data Intermediaries

    Speaker: Antoine Dubus, ETH Zürich
    Location: Joan Robinson Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 3.3.002a
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Room 3.3.002a-c

    We analyze mergers between strategic data intermediaries collecting consumer information that they sell to firms competing in a product market. We show that a merger: (a) reduces the intensity of competition in the product market through a change in the selling strategies of merging intermediaries; (b) increases data collection, reducing consumer surplus through a better rent extraction. We argue ...
