Ernst Fehr, Lorenz Goette. Robustness and real consequences of nominal wage rigidity

Nominal wage rigidity has been shown to exist in periods of high inflation, while reduction in nominal pay has been hypothesized to occur in times of lowinflation. Nominal wage rigidity would therefore become irrelevant because there is little need to cut nominal pay under high inflation, while the necessary cuts would occur under low inflation. We test this hypothesis by examining Swiss data in the 1990s, where wage inflation was low. Nominal wage rigidity proves robust in a low inflation environment...

Виктор Воронков. Существует ли этническая экономика?

Я хотел бы здесь изложить некоторые итоги исследовательского проекта “Кавказцы в большом российском городе: интеграция на фоне ксенофобии”, который был осуществлен в 1997-1999 годах сотрудниками Центра независимых социологических исследований, благодаря поддержке Фонда К. и Дж. Макартуров. Исследование имело несколько акцентов, важнейшим из которых стало формировании экономических сетей в мигрантских (я сознательно избегаю пока понятия “этнические”) общинах городов России. Такого рода исследован...

Olivier Bargain, Andreas Peichl. Steady-State Labor Supply Elasticities: A Survey

Previous reviews of static labor supply estimations concentrate mainly on the evidence from the 1980s and 1990s, Anglo-Saxon countries and early generations of labor sup- ply modeling. This paper provides a fresh characterization of steady-state labor supply elasticities for Western Europe and the US. We also investigate the relative contribution of different methodological choices in explaining the large variation in elasticity size observed across studies. While some recent studies show that...

Lukas Inderbitzin, Stefan Staubli, Josef Zweimüller. Extended Unemployment Benefits and Early Retirement: Program Complementarity and Program Substitution

Extending the potential duration of unemployment insurance (UI) bene ts is one of the most important policy instruments to ease economic hardships of job losers. For instance, the United States extended UI bene ts from 26 weeks to up to 99 weeks during the Great Recession. Many UI systems let UI generosity not only vary over the business cycle but also across groups with di erent labor market conditions. In particular, many countries grant more generous UI bene ts to older job losers. The pres...

Michael Wolf, Dan Wunderli. Bootstrap Joint Prediction Regions

Many statistical applications require the forecast of a random variable of interest over several periods into the future. The sequence of individual forecasts, one period at a time, is called a path forecast, where the term path refers to the sequence of individual future realizations of the random variable. The problem of constructing a corresponding joint prediction region has been rather neglected in the literature so far: such a region is supposed to contain the entire future path with a p...

Eva Ranehill, Frédéric Schneider, Roberto A. Weber. Growing Groups, Cooperation, and the Rate of Entry

We study the stability of voluntary cooperation in response to varying group growth rates. Using a laboratory public-good game, we construct a situation where increasing group size yields potential efficiency gains, but only with sustained cooperation. We then study the effect of exogenously varying growth rates on cooperation. Slow growth yields higher cooperation rates and welfare than fast growth, both for incumbents and entrants, which is consistent with optimistic self-reinforcing beliefs...
