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

    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...

    Nowcasting Income Inequality in Germany

    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

    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?

    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

    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...

    Exploring effects of life-like virtual interviewers on respondents’ answers in a smartphone survey

    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 Effectiveness of FX Interventions: A Meta-Analysis

    There is ample empirical literature centering on the effectiveness of foreign exchange intervention (FXI). Given the mix of objectives and country-heterogeneity, the general lack of consensus thus far is no surprise. We shed light on this debate by conducting the first comprehensive meta-analysis in the FXI literature, with 279 reported effects that stem from 74 distinct empirical studies. We cover ...
