    Migration and native health: new evidence from employer-employee data

    Speaker: Izabela Wnuk
    Location: Anna-J.-Schwartz-Raum
    DIW Berlin
    Room 5.2.010
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    This paper evaluates the effects of immigration on health in the workplace. Using rich linked employer-employee data, I demonstrate that firms with a higher concentration of foreign workers experience lower rates of long-term sick leave among native employees. The effect on the total sick rate is smaller in magnitude. The results are consistent with foreign employment alleviating understaffing and ...

    Selective reporting of placebo tests in top economics journals

    Speaker: Yifan Yang, Stockholm School of Economics
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    Placebo tests, where a null result is used to support the validity of the research design, is common in economics. Such tests provide an incentive to underreport statistically significant tests, a form of reversed p-hacking. Based on a pre-registered analysis plan, we test for such underreporting in all papers meeting our inclusion criteria (n=377) published in 11 top economics journals between 20 ...

    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B + 3.3.002C

    The acquisitions of startups by Google, Amazon, Meta, Amazon and Microsoft have steadily increased over the past years and have become more diversified. The current discussion about strategic motives for such acquisitions is vivid – especially in light of present concerns about the market power of gatekeepers, faster technological advances and digitalization. The principal question remains whether ...

    Closing the Gaps? The Impact of Student Aid Eligibility on Application Behavior to Higher Education

    Speaker: Clara Schäper
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 13:30 bis 14:30 Uhr

    This study examines how conditional aid eligibility influences students’ application behaviors using extensive data from the French national application platform, Admission Post Bac (APB). Employing a generalized difference-in differences approach, we analyze the impact of an exogenous change in the income threshold for financial aid eligibility. Our primary focus is on high-achieving students, a ...

    CANCELED: 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: 13:30-14:30

    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 ...

    Relief through software? A linear probability model on the relationship between digitalization, semi-automation and work intensity in acute nursing care

    Speaker: Julia Bringmann, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    This study asks how work intensity differs between nurses that work in three different hospital settings: 1) non-digitalized hospital, 2) digitalized hospital and 3) digitalized+semi-automated hospital. Theoretical and political expectations are that nurses experience less work intensity with higher digital maturity of the hospital. The digital transformation of hospitals is a current political ...

    Heterogeneous Sourcing, CO2 Emissions and Trade

    Speaker: Robin Sogalla, DIW Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B + 3.3.002C

    International trade separates the location where emissions occur (production) and where they are ultimately consumed. Thus, a substantial share of emissions is embodied in international trade. Moreover, firms within narrowly defined industries differ in their emission intensity. However, most firm-level studies only consider the direct emissions released during the production process. In this ...

    Local Currency Pricing by Firms: Evidence from China’s Renminbi (RMB) Reforms

    Speaker: Sonali Chowdhry, DIW Berlin
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B + 3.3.002C

    This paper examines the impact of RMB internationalization reforms on invoicing currency choices of firms exporting to China. Using detailed French customs data spanning 2011-2017, it documents three novel stylized facts on RMB adoption and suggests a novel mechanism that drives the self-selection of firms into RMB invoicing. Additionally, it provides causal estimates of the impact of RMB use on ...

    Stock market participation, remote work, and inequality

    Speaker: Lorenz Meister
    Location: Ferdinand Friedensburg Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.001
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Stock market participation jumped upwards in Germany in the year 2020 by about 25%. A major cause for this was the enforced use of remote work. We show this by repeating a benchmark study with demanding data requests and adding remote work to the explanatory variables. Moreover, we implement an instrumental variables estimation based on commuting distance and work-from- home capacity. The ...

    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:00-13:00

    The ongoing replicability and reproducibility crisis in the social sciences has revealed the importance of transparency, replications, and good scientific practice in the field of economics. But replication studies are scarce, innovations in these areas have not been sufficiently tested and scientific practices vary among researchers. Household panel studies offer a lot to behavioral economists ...

    Pension and Long-Term Care Expectations: Evidence from Germany

    Speaker: Bruno Veltri (HU Berlin), Maximilian Blesch
    Location: Joan Robinson Room

    Room 3.3.002a
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Two significant drivers of a person's financial situation in old age are pension income and costs for long-term care dependence. Both are unknown when the person makes her most important financial decisions, which makes it particularly interesting to understand her beliefs about them and how they influence her choices. In a representative survey, we elicit detailed expectations about individuals’ ...

    Subjective Well-being as a Complex System: A Psychometric Network Analysis Perspective

    Speaker: Bernd Schäfer, Ruhr-Universität Bochum
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    Subjective well-being (SWB) is a complex multidimensional construct with manifold positive implications. However, research on the structure of SWB faces some challenges, as empirical results regarding the popular tripartite model of SWB are inconclusive, and domain satisfaction is often not sufficiently considered when analyzing the structure of SWB. Furthermore, since the different SWB components ...

    How Divestitures Affect Bargaining Power

    Speaker: Yann Delaprez, European University Institute
    Time:
    11:30 - 12:30
    Francine D. Blau Room 3.3.002B+C

    This paper studies how bargaining power is affected by merger and divestiture policies. I provide a new empirical framework to compute bounds on brand-level bargaining weights using widely available sales data. Next, I exploit the variation in brand ownership caused by a large merger, cleared conditional on divestiture, in the U.S. deodorant market, to quantify the extent to which divestitures ...

    Time: 11:00 bis 12:00 Uhr

    Women continue to be underrepresented in leadership positions in the corporate sector such as on company boards. One of the reasons for this underrepresentation are gender stereotypes on the skill distribution, social and occupational roles, personality traits, and how they affect labor market decision making. Media plays an important role in transporting gender stereotypes. In this paper we ...

    What is the “right” geographic definition of relevant markets? We study how unexpected and exogenous increases in excise duties in petroleum products were passed-through to retail prices in the Athens region and examine how the degree of the pass-through varies across different geographic relevant markets. Using various definitions of the relevant geographic market, we find that the most ...
