Es zeigt sich eine eher skeptische Ein­schät­zung des aktuellen Klima­ambitions­niveaus vieler dieser Länder sowie der Erwartungen hinsichtlich der Erreichung nicht nur der aktuellen NDCs, sondern ...

What Drives Saudi Airstrikes in Yemen? An Empirical Analysis of the Dynamics of Coalition Airstrikes, Houthi Attacks, and the Oil Market

Since 2015, Saudi Arabia has led a foreign military intervention against the Houthi movement, which took over major parts of Yemen. The intervention, which manifests mainly in airstrikes, has attracted widespread controversy in media and politics as well as a large body of (qualitative) academic literature discussing its background and ways to escape it.

Corruption and Cheating: Evidence from Rural Thailand

This study tests the prediction that perceived corruption reduces ethical behavior. Integrating a standard “cheating” experiment into a broad household survey in rural Thailand, we find tentative support for this prediction: respondents who perceive corruption in state affairs are more likely to cheat and, thus, to fortify the negative consequences of corruption. Interestingly, there is a small group ...

100% Renewable Energy for Germany: Coordinated Expansion Planning Needed

Due to ambitious climate change targets and other energy and industrial policy goals such as the nuclear phase-out, the energy transition in Germany is heading toward a completely renewable energy system. This Weekly Report is the first to describe scenarios for 100 percent renewable energy coverage in Germany and, furthermore, shows it is both possible and realistic. In such a scenario, no more fossil ...

Optimal Supply Chains and Power Sector Benefits of Green Hydrogen

Green hydrogen can help to decarbonize parts of the transportation sector, but its power sectorinteractions are not well understood so far. It may contribute to integrating variable renewable energysources if production is sufficiently flexible in time. Using an open-source co-optimization model of thepower sector and four options for supplying hydrogen at German filling stations, we find a trade-offbetween ...

Venture Capital in Diabetes: A Yes to Big Hits, a No to Competition

Venture capital (VC) is often seen as an instrumental tool that allows many start-ups to pursue innovation with the potential to shake-up current markets and/or to replace incumbents. Using a highly granular, project-level dataset from preclinical diabetes R&D, this paper shows that VCs actively steer the direction of R&D and streamline activities of research focused firms (pipeline firms)...
