The modern tontine

We investigate whether a historical pension concept, the tontine, yields enough innovative potential to extend and improve the prevailing privately funded pension solutions in a modern way. The tontine basically generates an age-increasing cash flow, which can help to match the increasing financing needs at old ages. In contrast to traditional pension products, however, the tontine generates volatile ...

Changes in Social Trust: Evidence from East German Migrants

Using three waves of the Germany's individual-level panel data, this paper analyses whether there are any changes in the trust levels of East German migrants who move to the former Western German regions after the reunification. The results demonstrate that the duration of living in the West is positively associated with East German migrants’ trust and that the labour market is the possible channel ...

Intergenerational Transmission of Disadvantage: Negative Parental Selection, Economic Upheaval, and Smoking

Recessions negatively impact the health of individuals experiencing hardship. In this paper, we investigate whether there are also long-term effects for those born during difficult economic times through the effects on their health behavior. Based on a theoretical model of parental socialization against smoking and using data from the German Socioeconomic Panel, we assess smoking behavior of children ...

The Effect of Housework on Wages: A Study of Migrants and Native-Born Individuals in Germany

To increase labour market participation among migrants, an increase in female labour market participation is important, with wages being a significant incentive. In research on the gender wage gap, the consideration of housework has been a milestone. Gender differences in housework time have always been much greater among migrants than among native-born individuals. Based on data obtained from the ...

Combining parenthood and work: transmission channels and heterogeneous returns to early public childcare

We exploit local and temporal variation in the availability of public childcare for children under the age of three that induces exogenous variation in childcare attendance. We find a weak, positive average treatment effect (ATE) on maternal labor supply. The estimation of the average treatment effect is interesting – however, possibly masking important effect heterogeneity. Examining selection behavior ...

Does Fixed-Term Employment Have Spillover Effects on the Well-Being of Partners? A Panel Data Analysis for East and West Germany

This paper answers three research questions: What is the impact of fixed-term employment on the well-being of partners? How do these spillover effects differ by gender, and do gender differences depend on socialization in East or West Germany? Do individual well-being, perceived job insecurity, and financial worries mediate the spillover effects? We use longitudinal data from the Socio-Economic Panel ...

Mating Market and Dynamics of Union Formation

The paper investigates the relationship between structural partner market constraints and the timing and educational sorting of unions in Germany (1985–2018). We integrate the literature on the effect of the reversed gender gap in education on educational assortative mating, with a focus on mating dynamics and the measurement of the partner market over the life course. We concentrate on two particular ...

Does compulsory schooling affect health? Evidence from ambulatory claims data

Using claims data on more than 23 million statutorily insured, we investigate the causal effect of schooling on health in the largest and most comprehensive analysis for Germany to date. In a regression discontinuity approach, we exploit changes in compulsory schooling in West Germany to estimate the reduced form effect of the reforms on health, measured by doctor diagnoses in ICD-10 format covering ...

Is there a gender gap in equity-based crowdfunding?

Compared to their male peers, female entrepreneurs tend to face greater obstacles in raising venture funding from business angels, venture capitalists, and financial institutions. In this paper, we investigate whether this gender gap also exists in equity crowdfunding. Based on data from the German equity crowdfunding market, we find that ventures with and without female managing directors are equally ...

Within-Track Differentiation and Leisure Activities as Strategies of Distinction

Die sozial integrative Bildungsexpansion der letzten Jahrzehnte hat in Deutschland den früheren „elitären“ Status des Gymnasiums und seines Abschlusses, des Abiturs, verwässert. Da es im Gegensatz zu Großbritannien, den USA oder Frankreich in Deutschland keine expliziten „Elite“-Institutionen gibt, bleibt die Frage, wie soziale Privilegien in Zeiten der Bildungsexpansion intergenerationell weitergegeben ...
