    Time: 12:30-13:30

    This study uses administrative data on the universe of students in tertiary education in Germany and shows that university enrollment depends negatively on the local unemployment rate at high school graduation.

This paper studies the effects of this job search approach in the context of Germany compared to the formal ...

    Higher wage dispersion may induce unemployed workers to search longer for a job by increasing their reservation wages. This paper investigates the implications of this mechanism in a job search model featuring a finite work life, showing that a mean-preserving spread of the wage offer distribution could lead to a larger increase in reservation wages of younger than older workers because the ...

    Speaker: Li Yang
    Location: Karl Popper Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.020
    Mohrenstr. 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    The political consequences of refugees for receiving countries have received much attention in recent years and have sparked a burgeoning literature. However, evidence on the long-run consequences of refugees is lacking. The expulsion of 8 million Germans (so-called expellees) from Eastern Europe to post-WWII West Germany serves as a natural experiment that allows us to estimate the long-run ...

    Unconditional Basic Income: from theory to practice

    Speaker: Eva Jacob, University of Strasbourg
    Location: Francine D. Blau Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 3.3.002b
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    This paper aims to investigate whether Van Parijs' theory of Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) can address the criticism of the lack of individual responsibility on the part of recipients. To do so, I relate this UBI theory to the results of field experiments that study the impact of UBI on employment. Theoretical and empirical results suggest that the UBI does not lead to a decrease in labor ...

    Promotion prospects and within-level wage growth: A decomposition of the part-time penalty

    Speaker: Boryana Ilieva
    Location: Ferdinand Friedensburg Room
    DIW Berlin
    Room 2.3.001
    Mohrenstraße 58
    10117 Berlin
    Time: 12:30-13:30

    The part-time wage penalty is a key contributor to the gender wage gap. In this paper, I study how the part-time penalty decomposes in a lack of promotions to higher paying levels of the career ladder and a lack of wage growth conditional on the career level. I develop a dynamic model of labor supply that distinctly features hierarchical wage structures and promotions. I estimate the ...
