The Design of Unemployment Transfers: Evidence from a Dynamic Structural Life-Cycle Model

In this paper we use a dynamic structural life-cycle model to analyze the employment, fiscal and welfare effects induced by unemployment insurance. The model features a detailed specification of the tax and transfer system, including unemployment insurance benefits which depend on an individual's employment and earnings history. The model also captures the endogenous accumulation of experience which ...

Reversing the Question: Does Happiness Affect Consumption and Savings Behavior?

I examine the impact of happiness on consumption and savings behavior using data from the DNB Household Survey from the Netherlands and the German Socio-Economic Panel. Instrumenting individual happiness with regional sunshine, the results suggest that happier people save more, spend less, and have a lower marginal propensity to consume. Happier people take more time for making decisions and have more ...

The Effects of Income Taxation on Severance Pay

Severance pay often results from a bargain between the firm and the employee to avoid or terminate a legal conflict. We theoretically investigate how income taxation affects these negotiations. Using panel data from West Germany and exploiting a change in tax law in 1999, we find that a higher income tax on severance pay reduces the probability of obtaining it and - in some specifications - also lowers ...

The Distribution of Pension Wealth and the Process of Pension Building: Augmenting Survey Data with Administrative Pension Records by Statistical Matching ; Dissertation

The overhaul of the German system of old-age provision raises concerns about the future distribution of pension rights. Therefore, it is critical to gain a thorough understanding of the role pension wealth plays in the individual's total wealth holdings, but also what individual-level and institutional factors facilitate or impede successful pension building that allow individuals to retire with a ...

Einkommens- und Vermögenssituation der Babyboomer

Die finanzielle Lage und die Rentenaussichten der so genannten Babyboomer (Menschen, die den geburtenstarken Jahrgängen der Nachkriegszeit angehören) gaben in den letzten Jahren in den USA Anlass zur Besorgnis und haben große Aufmerksamkeit erregt. In Deutschland hingegen wurde die Frage, wie es den Babyboomern finanziell geht, bisher nur selten behandelt. Auf Grundlage der Studie "Sparen und Altersvorsorge ...

Redistribution and Insurance in the German Welfare State

Welfare states redistribute both between individuals reducing annual inequality and over the life-cycle insuring against income risks. But studies measuring redistribution often focus only on a one-year period. Using German SOEP data from 1984 to 2009, long-term inequality over a 20-year period is computed and then decomposed into an inter- and intra-individual component. Results show that annual inequality ...
