First, we draw the geography of intergenerational mobility of education for 52 Latin American regions, as well as its evolution over time.

The long-run penalty on the female income share is 30.9% in West German couples, compared to 18.3% in East German...

Using large representative panel data sets from West Germany, ...

We compare women and men with dependent children to those without children one year after the outbreak of the pandemic. Using data on gender role attitudes from 2008 through 2021, we find that fathers’ egalitarian attitudes toward maternal employment dropped ...

Long-Term Effects of Equal Sharing: Evidence from Inheritance Rules for Land

What are the long-term economic effects of a more equal distribution of wealth? We exploit variation in historical inheritance rules for land traversing political, linguistic, geological, and religious borders in Germany. In some German areas, inherited land was to be shared or divided equally among children, while in others land was ruled to be indivisible. Using a geographic regression...
