    Chinesische Kredite nach Afrika unterscheiden sich von westlichen Entwicklungskrediten

    China hat in den letzten 20 Jahren auffällig viele Kredite an afrikanische Länder vergeben. Neue Kreditdaten zeigen, dass chinesische Kredite im Vergleich zu westlichen, multilateralen Krediten relativ teuer, nicht so langfristig, tendenziell stärker besichert und bezogen auf die Volumina im Zeitverlauf volatiler sind. Damit dürften westliche Kredite im Allgemeinen eher im volkswirtschaftlichen Interesse ...

    Over the past 20 years, China has granted a conspicuous amount of loans to African countries. New loan data show that compared to Western multilateral loans, Chinese loans have relatively high interest rates and shorter maturities, tend to be highly collateralized, and are volatile over time.

    Working from Home Facilitates Stock Ownership

    In 2020, there were simultaneous increases in the number of private persons participating on the stock market as well as in the number of employees working from home.

    How Shocks Affect Stock Market Participation

    While there is a broad consensus in the literature that stock ownership is associated with individual characteristics, such as wealth, income, risk preferences, and financial literacy, less is known about the dynamics of stock market participation (SMP). Major fluctuations in SMP are oftentimes related to political events, economic shocks, and technological disruptions. We discuss the literature that ...

This study examines German states’ response during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on the interplay between civil liberties and public health goals. Using state-level variation in mobility restrictions, we employ a difference-in-differences design to show that stay-at-home ...
