    A re-examination of constrained Pareto inefficiency in economies with incomplete markets

    20 April 2016

    The authors establish that, when the number of agents is sufficiently large, but finite, there are open sets of economies with constrained Pareto inefficient equilibria, and provide a simple sufficient condition for CP inefficiency. They also show that there are open sets of economies with CPO equilibria.

    Asymmetric information in external versus internal promotions

    06 April 2016

    Individuals have two possible channels through which to obtain a managerial position: external and internal promotions. Employing the revised German Employment Register, we compare external and internal promotions by using multinomial logit regressions while accounting for workplace heterogeneity. Individual characteristics are hypothesized to exert differential effects because of their observability within and across workplaces. We find that actual working hours are a more important source of information for internal versus external promotions.

    Employment effects of the new German minimum wage

    17 March 2016

    In Germany a new statutory minimum wage of € 8.50 per hour of work was introduced on 1 January 2015. The authors identify employment effects using variation in the establishment-level affectedness. The data allow them to address anticipatory wage adjustments as well as spillover effects within and across workplaces. Difference-indifferences estimation reveals an increase in average wages by 4.8 percent and an employment reduction by about 1.9 percent in affected establishments. These estimates imply an employment elasticity with respect to wages of about -0.3.

    Differences in welfare take-up between immigrants and natives

    01 March 2016

    The authors study whether immigrants in Germany differ in their take-up behavior conditional on being eligible for receiving welfare benefits relative to their German counterparts. The empirical approach aims (i) to determine eligibility for welfare benefits for a representative sample of the whole population in Germany using a microsimulation model based on data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (GSOEP) and then (ii) to estimate probit models of observed welfare benefit take-up for the sample of eligible households.

    The productivity effects of worker mobility between heterogeneous firms

    29 February 2016

    Several empirical studies find that worker inflows from more productive or otherwise superior firms increase hiring firms’ productivity. The authors conduct a similar analysis for Germany, using a unique linked employer-employee data set, and ranking sending and hiring establishments by their median wage.
