    Zeitenbruch in der Außenhandelspolitik?

    Der russische Überfall auf die Ukraine wurde so nicht erwartet und hat entsprechend zu einer Neubewertung der Sicherheitslage geführt. Die entsprechenden Maßnahmen sind so einschneidend, dass der 24. 2.2022 häufig als ein Zeitenbruch angesehen wird. Zweifellos gibt es diesen Bruch im deutschen Außenhandel mit Russland. Darüber hinaus allerdings ist der Höhepunkt der Globalisierung bereits seit rund ...

    COVID-19 Lockdown Compliance, Financial Stress, and Acceleration in Technology Adoption in Rural Uganda

    We examine the medium-term impact of COVID-19 for financial well-being and technology adoption in a low-income country. The analysis is based on regionally representative panel data consisting of 1,975 micro-entrepreneurs from rural Uganda. Using a LASSO approach, we first show that several business characteristics predict longer business shutdown due to COVID-19, including running a service business. ...

    The Effect of Social Comparison on Debt Taking: Experimental Evidence

    A number of studies show that there is a link between social comparison and high levels of household debt. However, the exact mechanisms behind this link are not yet well understood. In this paper, we disentangle two mechanisms by performing a lab experiment designed to study the effects of social image concerns and peer information on consumption choices financed through debt taking. We find that ...

    Energy Transition Metals

    The energy transition requires substantial amounts of metals such as copper, nickel, cobalt and lithium. Are these metals a key bottleneck? We identify metal-specific demand shocks, estimate supply elasticities and pin down the price impact of the energy transition in a structural scenario analysis. Metal prices would reach historical peaks for an unprecedented, sustained period in a net-zero emissions ...

    Risky Asset Holdings during Covid-19 and Their Distributional Impact: Evidence from Germany

    We present evidence from a repeated survey on risky asset holdings carried out on a representative sample of the German population six times between April and June 2020. Given the size of the Covid-19 shock, we find little evidence of portfolio rebalancing in April 2020. In May, however, individual investors started buying heavily, fueling market recovery. The cross-section shows large differences ...

    The Multifaceted Impact of US Trade Policy on Financial Markets

    We study the multifaceted effects and persistence of trade policy shocks on financial markets in a structural vector autoregression. The model is identified via event day heteroskedasticity. We find that restrictive US trade policy shocks affect US and international stock prices heterogeneously, but generally negatively, increasing market uncertainty, lowering interest rates, and leading to an appreciation ...
