    What Makes an Entrepreneur and Does It Pay? Native Men, Turks, and Other Migrants in Germany

    This paper focuses on the entrepreneurial endeavors of immigrants and natives in Germany. We pay closer attention to Turks, since they are the largest immigrant group with a strong entrepreneurial tradition, and the self-employed Turks in Germany represent about 70% of all Turkish entrepreneurs in the European Union. We identify the characteristics of the self-employed individuals and understand their ...

This paper looks at the patterns of employment in Germany, analyzes how individual ...

    Migranten in Berlin: schlechte Jobchancen, geringe Einkommen, hohe Transferabhängigkeit

    Der Anteil der Personen mit Migrationshintergrund ist in Berlin nicht höher als in vergleichbaren deutschen Städten. Wegen der schlechten Wirtschaftsentwicklung und der allgemein hohen Unterbeschäftigung in Berlin treten die mit Migration verbundenen ökonomischen und sozialen Phänomene hier jedoch besonders deutlich zutage. Dabei kommt zweierlei zusammen: Zum einen ist in den großen Städten die Erwerbslosigkeit ...

    Native-Migrant Differences in Risk Attitudes

    This paper questions the perceived wisdom that migrants are more risk-loving than the native population. We employ a new large German survey of direct individual risk measures to find that first-generation migrants have lower risk attitudes than natives, which only equalize in the second generation.

Particular attention is paid to the role of legal status at entry in the host country (worker, refugee, and ...

    European Labour Mobility: Challenges and Potentials

    European Union economies are pressed by (i) a demographic change that induces population ageing and a decline of the workforce, and (ii) a split labour market that is characterized by high levels of unemployment for low-skilled people and a simultaneous shortage of skilled workers. This lack of flexible high-skilled workers and the aging process has created the image of an immobile labour force and ...
