Trajectories of Multiple Subjective Well-Being Facets Across Old Age: The Role of Health and Personality

Subjective well-being is often characterized by average stability across old age, but individual differencesare substantial and not yet fully understood. This study targets physical and cognitive health andpersonality as individual difference characteristics and examines their unique and interactive roles forlevel and change in a number of different facets of subjective well-being. We make use of medicaldiagnoses, ...

Bayesian Inference for Structural Vector Autoregressions IdentifiEd by Markov-Switching Heteroskedasticity

In this study, Bayesian inference is developed for structural vector autoregressive models in which the structural parameters are identified via Markov-switching heteroskedasticity. In such a model, restrictions that are just-identifying in the homoskedastic case, become over-identifying and can be tested. A set of parametric restrictions is derived under which the structural matrix is globally or ...

Constructing Joint ConfiDence Bands for Impulse Response Functions of Var Models: A Review

Methods for constructing joint confidence bands for impulse response functions which are commonly used in vector autoregressive analysis are reviewed. While considering separate intervals for each horizon individually still seems to be the most common approach, a substantial number of methods have been proposed for making joint inferences about the complete impulse response paths up to a given horizon. ...

The Macroeconomic Effects of a European Deposit (Re-) Insurance Scheme

While the first two pillars of the European Banking Union have been implemented, a European deposit insurance scheme (EDIS) is still not in place. To facilitate its introduction, recent proposals argue in favor of a reinsurance scheme. In this paper, we use a regime-switching open-economy DSGE model with bank default and bank-government linkages to assess the relative efficiency of such a scheme. We ...

Masterstudium ja oder nein? Gezielte Online-Informationen beeinflussen weitere Studienpläne

Nach wie vor entscheidet sich die Mehrheit der BachelorabsolventInnen für ein Masterstudium, auch wenn die Anteile zurückgehen. Wenig ist jedoch darüber bekannt, was diese Entscheidung beeinflusst und inwiefern dabei Informationen über zusätzliche Erträge eines Masterstudiums und dessen Finanzierung im Vergleich zu einem Bachelorstudium relevant sind. Die vorliegende Analyse auf Basis des Berliner-Studienberechtigten-Panels ...

Income Inequality and Risk Taking: The Impact of Social Comparison Information

In contrast to the assumptions of standard economic theory, recent experimental evi-dence shows that the income of peers has a systematic impact on observed degrees of risk aversion. This paper reports the findings of two experiments examining the impact of income inequality on risk preferences and whether the knowledge of inequality mediates the decisions. In Experiment 1, participants who were recruited ...
