    Hartz IV and the Decline of German Unemployment: A Macroeconomic Evaluation

    21 February 2019

    This paper proposes a new approach to evaluate the macroeconomic effects of the Hartz IV reform in Germany, which reduced the generosity of long-term unemployment benefits. We use a model with different unemployment durations, where the reform initiates both  a partial effect and an equilibrium effect. The relative importance of these two effects  and the size of the partial effect are estimated based on the IAB Job Vacancy Survey.

    Digitisation will leave a strong mark on the working world of today, including leadership styles, structures, and cultures. Still, however, many companies and job-seeking managers stick to the old ways of thinking. But what kind of leadership does digitisation require in the first place? And how can companies prepare for the imminent changes?

    Early child care and maternal employment: empirical evidence from Germany

    14 January 2019

    This paper examines the effect of an expansion of subsidized early child care on maternal labor market outcomes. It contributes to the literature by analyzing, apart from the employment rate and agreed working hours, preferred working hours. Using the legal claim for subsidized child care introduced in Germany in August 2013 for children aged one to three years, I apply a semi-parametric difference-in-differences estimator to examine maternal labor market outcomes.
