    Foreign Debt, Capital Controls, and Secondary Markets: Theory and Evidence from Nazi Germany

    We investigate how internal distribution motives can affect the implementation of an important macroeconomic policy: capital controls. To do this, we study one of history’s largest debt repatriations, which took place under strict capital controls in 1930s Germany, providing a wealth of quantitative and historical evidence. We show that the authorities kept private repatriations under strict control, ...

    The Governing Council of the European Central Bank (ECB) decided today to keep the key interest rate constant. Here is a statement from Marcel Fratzscher, President of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin):

    From Policy to Practice: Applying Empirical Analysis and Historic Contexts to Understand Fiscal and Monetary Policy, and their Interaction

    This dissertation collects empirical work in the field of fiscal and monetary policy, and their interaction. It comprises four chapters. In Chapter 1, I investigate the dynamic effects of tax changes on the cross-sectional distribution of disposable income in the US using a narrative identification approach. I distinguish between changes in personal and corporate income taxes and quantify the distributional ...

    DIW Berlin Economic Outlook: Global Economy Experiencing Robust Growth; Germany’s Recovery Is Delayed Further

    The German economy will likely contract in the first quarter of 2024 due to still heightened inflation and weak demand, which was already weighing on German economic output in 2023. Inflation, which is falling in both Germany and the euro area overall, is expected to return close to the European Central Bank's two-percent target, suggesting that a turnaround in interest rates can be expected in early ...

    The Multifaceted Impact of US Trade Policy on Financial Markets

    We study the multifaceted effects of trade policy shocks on financial markets using a structural vector autoregression identified via event day heteroskedasticity. We find that restrictive US trade policy shocks affect US and international stock prices heterogeneously, but generally negatively. They increase market uncertainty, lower US interest rates, and lead to an appreciation of the US dollar. ...

    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 ...

    Will the Digital Euro Be Attractive Enough to Generate Significant Demand?

    Der Rückgang der Verwendung von Bargeld und das Aufkommen innovativer digitaler Zahlungssysteme haben die EZB wie viele andere Zentralbanken dazu veranlasst, die Einführung ihrer Währung in digitaler Form zu erwägen. Die technischen Probleme bei der Einführung eines digitalen Euro scheinen nicht unüberwindbar zu sein. Ein Thema, das jedoch weniger Beachtung gefunden hat, ist die Nachfrage nach einem ...

    Monetary Policy, External Instruments, and Heteroskedasticity

    We develop a structural vector autoregressive framework that combines external instruments and heteroskedasticity for identification of monetary policy shocks. We show that exploiting both types of information sharpens structural inference, allows testing the relevance and exogeneity condition for instruments separately using likelihood ratio tests, and facilitates the economic interpretation of the ...

    Impact of the 2022 Interest-Rate Shock on Cooperative Banks in Germany: A Case Study

    Zwischen Juli und Dezember erhöhte die Europäische Zentralbank (EZB) ihren Leitzins äußerst kräftig um 250 Basispunkte. Dieser Zinsschock stellte für die deutschen Genossenschaftsbanken wie auch für viele andere Kreditinstitute eine große Herausforderung dar. Infolgedessen mussten die Genossenschaftsbanken deutliche Ertragseinbußen hinnehmen. Diese äußerten sich überwiegend in einem hohen Bewertungsaufwand ...
