    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Paid Family Leave and Fertility: The Case of California

    Current research on maternal and parental leave focuses on leave take-up and employment outcomes, finding that short leaves have beneficial labor market outcomes. As the US faces below replacement fertility and an aging population, we need to consider potential unintended fertility consequences of these policies. Generous European and Australian leave policies have increased fertility and fertility intentions. The unpaid Family Medical Leave Act in the US also increased fertility. Yet, we do not know the effect of short, modestly paid leaves on fertility, especially in the US policy context. Using Synthetic Control Method, I estimate the impact of the introduction of a modest paid family leave policy, California’s Paid Family Leave (CA-PFL), on several fertility outcomes. Preliminary results find no impact of CA-PFL on aggregate birthrates, which is expected given the modest benefits of this policy. As this policy was targeted towards disadvantaged populations who do not have access to paid family leave and/or cannot afford unpaid leave, the next step is to explore heterogenous effects by race, income, and education. I will also test for changes along the intensive margin such as age at birth and birth timing/spacing. While preliminary findings do not show increasing fertility as previous research suggested, CA-PFL also does not appear to dampen fertility. This means that women can reap the labor market and gender equity benefits of paid family leave found in previous research without unintended fertility consequences.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Residential Segregation and Charitable Giving to Refugees

    A large corpus of literature investigates how the presence of ethnic and economic out-group affects pro-social behavior. However, some long-standing theoretical controversies have not yet been resolved and empirical results are mixed. On the one hand, researchers associated with social identity and group-threat theories argue that out-group presence will drive down the pro-social behavior towards the out-group members. On the other hand, social contact theorists claim that residing in the ethnically and economically mixed neighborhoods will have a positive infuence as social contact reduces out-group prejudice. One way to reconcile these two theoretical streams is to take the geographical clustering of social groups into account. Residential segregation will reduce the likelihood of inter-group cooperation by limiting inter-group contact opportunities as well as making group boundaries more salient. My study tests this hypothesis by linking neighborhood-level social indicators and detailed individual-level data on charitable giving to refugees in Germany. I find that likelihood of giving to refugees declines in the city-level immigrant share. However, this effect is driven by the german natives living in the predominantly german neighborhoods.

    DIW Seminar on Macroeconomics and Financial Markets International spillovers of the Fed and ECB monetary policy surprises

    This paper uses a structural vector autoregression identified with the high frequency approach to study the international spillovers of the Fed and ECB monetary policy surprises. It distinguishes between the news about monetary policy (monetary policy shocks) and news about the economy in these surprises. The paper finds that the Fed monetary policy shocks have a very strong effect on the euro area, mainly through financial channels rather than through trade. By contrast, the ECB monetary policy shocks have no detectable effect on the US. The news about the state of the economy affect the risk appetite of global investors, with significant implications for the capital flows and financial conditions.

    SOEP Brown Bag Seminar Multidimensional Inequality Analysis using SOEP data and the Constitution of Germany

    Well-being inequality is a subject that has being extensively covered and which is widely discussed also in the political and civil environment. However, the majority of the studies done in this field are still limited to the analysis of monetary variables, like income, wealth or expenditure, completely forsaking non-monetary elements such as education, health or employment on the basis that monetary variables have the same trends and are sufficiently good proxies of well-being.
    However, many scholars (such as Sen, 1980, 1992, 1997) think the opposite. This presentation aims to go beyond the monetary-only one dimensional approach and to construct a multidimensional measure of inequality comprised of both monetary and non-monetary values, as it has already been done with well-being (Sen, Stiglitz, Fitoussi, 2010) and poverty (Rippin, 2010) and to see the trends and values of well-being multidimensional inequality in Germany before and after the crisis of 2007. The role of non-monetary inequality and gender and regional differences are also important topics that will be analysed.
    At the same time, a strong theoretical background that justifies the choice of dimensions and weights is proposed in the form of the Constitutional Approach by (Burchi, De Muro & Kollar, 2014) which uses the countries' constitutions and annexed documents to identify the most important variables for those countries.
    The analysis will make use of the SOEP, an invaluable source of information on many aspects of well-being and arguably among the best dataset available for this kind of analysis. A comparison with some previous analysis regarding Italy (using IT SILC) will allow to understand the possible outcome of the research made with the SOEP.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Changing the incentive to pollute: Heterogeneous effects of waste pricing policies

    To internalize pollution externalities of municipal waste, Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) pricing schemes for unsorted waste are adopted worldwide. This paper estimates causal effects of PAYT on unsorted, recycling and total waste generation, and analyzes the determinants of policy adoption and compliance. The empirical strategy uses a multiple random forest approach on a unique six-year panel data on a large set of covariates for about all municipalities in Italy. Policy adoption is found to be most likely for municipalities with high recycling, and heterogeneous in socio-economic and political variables. Results show that PAYT is on average effective, decreasing per capita unsorted waste up to -72%. Effects are mostly driven by an increase in recycling (up to 40%), and less by waste reduction (up to -19\%). Analyzing heterogeneity reveals that total waste increases (rebound effects) are possible when households have low opportunity costs of recycling, and low education. Thereby, targeting these municipalities with awareness-raising campaigns could increase PAYT effectiveness.

    DIW Seminar on Macroeconomics and Financial Markets European unemployment insurance

    The paper explores the scope for a federal unemployment insurance scheme in the euro area. It models a union of atomistic member states that have authority over a wide range of domestic labor-market policies. Member states are faced with idiosyncratic business-cycle shocks, but are prevented from international borrowing.
    Labor-market frictions and wage rigidities mean that business cycles are inecient. Federal UI transfers are nanced through a lump-sum tax on member states. For xed local labor-market policies, optimal federal unemployment-based transfers provide full insurance against regional shocks, and smooth the business cycle. If member states can adjust labor-market policies in response, however, optimal federal UI is much less generous, rendering federal UI ineective. Indexation of payouts to past unemployment rates does not address the dynamic incentives to freeride. Federaltransfers can be eective if more political authority is transferred to the federal level: either authority over labor-market policies, or if the federal UI system is structured like an enforceable loan.
