    The Globalization of Steam Coal Markets and the Role of Logistics: An Empirical Analysis

    In this paper, we provide a comprehensive multivariate cointegration analysis of three parts of the steam coal value chain - export, transport and import prices. The analysis is based on a rich dataset of international coal prices; in particular, we combine data on steam coal prices with freight rates, covering the period December 2001 until August 2009 at weekly frequency. We then test whether the ...

    Equalizing or Disequalizing Lifetime Earnings Differentials? Earnings Mobility in the EU: 1994-2001

    Do EU citizens have an increased opportunity to improve their position in the distribution of lifetime earnings? To what extent does earnings mobility work to equalize/disequalize longerterm earnings relative to cross-sectional inequality and how does it differ across the EU? Our basic assumption is that mobility measured over a horizon of 8 years is a good proxy for lifetime mobility. We used the ...

    Goodbye Germany - und dann? Erste Ergebnisse einer Pilotstudie zur Befragung von Auswanderern aus Deutschland

    Anders als bei der Analyse von Zuwanderung existieren bislang kaum wissenschaftlich verwertbare Daten über das Ausmaß und die Beweggründe von Auswanderungen aus Deutschland. Ferner gibt es nahezu keine Informationen über die Lebensbedingungen der Auswanderer nach Ankunft in ihrer neuen Heimat. Insofern verwundert es kaum, dass sich die deutsche Migrationsforschung derzeit hauptsächlich auf aggregierte ...

    CO2 Based Taxation on Cars Is Rising in Europe

    In recent years, CO2 emissions have become the leading basis of assessment for car taxes in most European countries. In July 2009, with a view to pursuing climate policy goals, also Germany began using this factor to assess taxation on cars. The DIW Berlin has carried out a systematic and quantitative comparison of car taxation in Europe.1 The results reveal high tax rates in over ten countries that ...

    CO2-Besteuerung von Pkws in Europa auf dem Vormarsch

    In den vergangenen Jahren haben sich CO2-Emissionen als maßgebliche Bemessungsgrundlage von Kfz-Steuern in den meisten europäischen Ländern durchgesetzt. Auch Deutschland hat ab Juli 2009 die Pkw-Steuer für Neufahrzeuge an dieser Größe orientiert, um klimapolitische Ziele zu verfolgen. Das DIW Berlin hat einen systematischen und quantitativen Vergleich der Besteuerung von Pkws in Europa durchgeführt. ...

    How Does Fuel Taxation Impact New Car Purchases? An Evaluation Using French Consumer-Level Data

    This study evaluates the impact of fuel prices on new car purchases, using exhaustive individual-level data of monthly registration of new private cars in France from 2003 to 2007. Detailed information on the car holder enables us to account for heterogeneous preferences across purchasers. We identify demand parameters through the large oil price fluctuations of this period. We find that the sensitivity ...

    Intergenerational Transmission of Unemployment: Evidence for German Sons

    This paper studies the association between the unemployment experience of fathers and their sons. Based on German survey data that cover the last decades we find significant positive correlations. Using instrumental variables estimation and the Gottschalk (1996) method we investigate to what extent fathers' unemployment is causal for offsprings' employment outcomes. In agreement with most of the small ...

    Regional Structures and Mobility Dispositions: A Multilevel Proportional- & Partial-Proportional Odds Approach

    In the light of persistent regional disparities in Germany, a wide range of studies discuss the role of regional characteristics in explaining the mobility behavior of individuals. Although multi-stage mobility theories underline the importance of regional structures particularly within the first stage of the decision-making process – whereas the actual mobility behavior is often seen as being dependent ...

    Climate Protection through Biochar in German Agriculture: Potentials and Costs

    In recent years, there has been much discussion about biochar - a carbonaceous product made of biomass - as a promising technique for mitigating climate change. In particular, this method has the potential to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere for the long term by incorporating biochar into the soil while enhancing soil fertility at the same time. A research project conducted by DIW Berlin calculated ...

    Gender Differences in Residential Mobility: The Case of Leaving Home in East Germany

    This paper investigates gender differences in the spatial mobility of young adults when initially leaving their parental home. Using individual data from 11 waves (2000-2010) of the SOEP, we examine whether female home leavers in East Germany move across greater distances than males and whether these differences are explained by the gender gap in education. Our results reveal that female home leavers ...
