GDPR and the Lost Generation of Innovative Apps

Speaker: Reinhold Kesler, University of Zurich
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time:
15:15 - 16:15

Using data on 4.1 million apps at the Google Play Store from 2016 to 2019, we document that GDPR induced the exit of about a third of available apps; and in the quarters following implementation, entry of new apps fell by half. We estimate a structural model of demand and entry in the app market. Comparing long-run equilibria with and without GDPR, we find that GDPR reduces consumer surplus and ...

Are stranded assets still stranded? The effect of energy-security debates on redundant infrastructure

Speaker: Georg Zachmann (Bruegel), Kirsten Westphal (H2 Global/Stiftung Politik und Wissenschaft), Nina Scholz (Equinor)
Location: Elinor Ostrom Hall

Mohrenstr. 58
10117 Berlin
Time: 12:30 - 14:00

Until the Russian war in Ukraine and its strong effects on the re-organisation of energy flows in Europe, it seemed a consensus that fossil assets will become stranded within the coming decades due to ever more stringent climate policy. Therefore, investments in such assets should be avoided as early as possible. With the newly awakened focus on energy security, the insurance aspect of redundant ...

Focusing on the 2012 wave of sanctions against Iran and the 2014 sanctions ...

An introduction to respondent-driven sampling (RDS) with case studies

Speaker: Mariel McKone Leonard, DeZIM - German Center for Integration and Migration Research
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:00-13:15

Declining response rates have made traditional, probability-based sampling methods more resource-intensive and thus more expensive. Studies of population subgroups are particularly vulnerable to this trend, as smaller group sizes as well as other factors often make these groups "hard-to-reach" or "hard-to-survey". In response, researchers have increasingly relied on network sampling ...

Chimpanzee and human risk preferences show key similarities

The Effects of Shortening Potential Benefit Duration: Evidence from Regional Cut-offs and a Policy Reform

Speaker: Jonas Jessen
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 14:00-15:00

We quantify labour market effects of changes in the potential benefit duration (PBD) in Poland. Individual workers' PBD depends on the county unemployment rate relative to the national average---12 months of PBD above a cut-off of 125 per cent and 6 months below. This cut-off shifted from 125 to 150 per cent in a 2009 reform. We utilize (i) the natural experiment of the reform and (ii) the sharp ...

Belonging or Estrangement – the European Refugee Crisis and its Effects on Immigrant Identity

Speaker: Christopher Prömel, Freie Universität Berlin
Location: Online seminar via Cisco Webex
Time: 12:30-13:30

This study deals with the impact of the 2015 European Refugee Crisis on the ethnic identity of resident migrants in Germany. To derive plausibly causal estimates, I exploit the quasi-experimental setting in Germany, by which refugees are allocated to different counties by state authorities without being able to choose their locations themselves. This study finds that higher shares of ...
