    Monetary Policy and Mispricing in Stock Markets

    We investigate the role of monetary policy in stock price misalignments and explore whether central banks can attenuate excessive mispricing as suggested by the proponents of a “leaning against the wind” monetary policy. Decomposing stock prices into expected excess dividends, an equity risk premium, and a mispricing component, we find that prices fall more strongly in response to an increase in the ...

    Global Risk and the Dollar

    The dollar is a safe-haven currency and appreciates when global risk goes up. We investigate the dollar’s role for the transmission of global risk to the world economy within a Bayesian proxy structural vector autoregressive model. We identify global risk shocks using high-frequency asset-price surprises around narratively selected events. Global risk shocks appreciate the dollar, induce tighter global ...

    Better Early than Never – The Effects of Anticipated Gift Tax Changes on Business Transfers

    Wealth transfer taxes are important instruments to counter increasing wealth inequality. Yet, inter-generational business transfers, whose distribution is particularly concentrated at the top, are inherently difficult to tax. This is due to preferential tax treatments in many countries and sophisticated tax avoidance strategies by business owners. We analyze how business transfers react to...

    Stock market participation, remote work, and inequality

    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...

    Subjective Belief Formation and Stock Market Participation in Germany.

    This paper investigates the unique ways in which individuals assimilate new information into their beliefs about stock returns and examines the consequences of heterogeneous information processing on savings and investment decisions. Utilizing two exogenous information treatments from 2017 and 2018 surveys of German households, I discover that individuals' short-term return expectations shift by...
