    The Economic Consequences of Being Widowed by War: A Life-Cycle Perspective (with J. Stuhler)

    Speaker: Sebastian Braun, University of Bayreuth
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    Despite millions of war widows worldwide, little is known about the economic consequences of being widowed by war. We use life history data from West Germany to show that war widowhood increased women’s employment immediately after World War II but led to lower employment rates later in life. War widows, therefore, carried a double burden of employment and childcare while their children were young ...

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

    Current developments in the labor income distribution shape the business cycle and the transmission of fiscal and monetary policy measures. During economic crises, timely and well targeted economic policy becomes essential but the volatility of the (labor) income distribution is particularly high. Detailed distributional data on household incomes becomes available after one year at the earliest. ...

    How resilient is public support for carbon pricing? Longitudinal evidence from Germany

    Speaker: Stephan Sommer, Bochum University of Applied Sciences and RWI - Leibniz Institute for Economic Research
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    The success of climate policies depends crucially on the dynamics of public support. Using unique longitudinal data from three surveys conducted between 2019 and 2022, we study the variations of public support for carbon pricing in Germany. The period includes two relevant events: the introduction and ramping up of carbon pricing in Germany and the exogenous increase in energy prices following the ...

    Ethnic segregation in a stratified school system: Does ability tracking hamper ‘white flight’ from local schools?

    Speaker: Hanno Kruse, University of Bonn
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    Research on parental school choice provides strong evidence of so-called ‘white flight’ – that ethnic majority parents avoid choosing a local school if it contains large numbers of ethnic minority students. In this study, we examine such segregating choices in a formally stratified school system. Theoretically, we argue that segregating choices are less common in an educational setting where ...

    Intervivos Gifts as Informal Insurance Responses to Adverse Life Events

    Speaker: Mathis Sansu, Paris-Panthéon-Assas University and French Institute for Demographic Studies (INED)
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    We investigate if and how adverse life events – early widowhood, divorce, disability, job loss - trigger informal insurance responses in the form of intervivos gifts. Drawing from Dutch register data, we construct comprehensive panels comprising individuals undergoing such shocks in the period 2011-2017, and we analyse the patterns of gift receipt surrounding these events. We run separate event ...

    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Menopause marks a crucial juncture in women's lives and careers, coinciding with the peak of their income and working hours trajectory. On average, a third of women encounter severe health problems during this phase, exposing them to the risk of adverse labor market and health outcomes. Leveraging Norwegian registry data, coupled with panel data on doctor visits related to menopausal issues and ...

    Wage Markups and Buyer Power in Intermediate Input Markets

    Speaker: Leonard Treuren, KU Leuven
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B + 3.3.002C

    How are market imperfections in different input markets related? I show theoretically that the extent of buyer power in intermediate input markets determines both wages and wages relative to the marginal revenue contribution of employees if collective bargaining characterizes labor markets. This relationship is examined empirically using data on the universe of Dutch manufacturing firms from 2007 ...

    Time: 10:00-11:30

    Inexpensive and time-efficient web surveys have increasingly replaced survey interviews, especially conducted in person. Even well-known social surveys, such as the European Social Survey, follow this trend. However, web surveys suffer from low response rates and frequently struggle to assure that the data are of high quality. New advances in communication technology and artificial intelligence ...

    The EU 2040 target - How can it make climate policies more effective?

    Speaker: Vicky Pollard, DG CLIMA, European Commission, André Poschmann, Federal Ministry for Economics and Climate Action, Sibylle Braungardt, Öko Institut, Anna Leipprand, Wuppertal Institute
    Time: 13:00 - 14:00

    In the recently published communication on the EU 2040 Climate Target, the European Commission outlines the final "stepping stone" on the way to EU climate neutrality by 2050. It not only entails reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by 90% until the year 2040 but also outlines transformative developments in key sectors. In our next Berlin Seminar, we will discuss the proposed European strategy ...

    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Mass protests have long been recognized as effective political actions, particularly in autocratic regimes where they serve as a potent tool for opposition movements. This paper examines the case of East Germany, specifically the Peaceful Revolution of 1989, which stands out as a rare example where protests successfully contributed to the democratization of an autocracy. The study focuses on the ...

    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B + 3.3.002C

    The emerging net zero paradigm requires economies to go green; and Europe’s ambition is to lead the way. This requires directing technological change toward cleaner growth, which intersects with green industrial policies in the form of green innovation subsidies. Leveraging a quasi-exhaustive novel dataset on German R&D subsidies, we provide rigorous evidence on whether green R&D subsidies ...

    The Persistence of Employment Gaps in Couples: To what extent do relative female-to-male wage opportunities matter?

    Speaker: Luisa Hammer
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Gender gaps in employment have narrowed but remain substantial, especially within couples. When I proxy potential earnings through demand-driven wage changes in job tasks within industries and using German administrative data, I show that a rising relative female-to-male potential wage increases work hours of female partners, but at a diminishing rate. Men, on the other hand, reduce their work ...
