Institutional Change in Political Economies and Varieties of Methods in Social Science Research on Postcommunism

The workshop’s goal is to focus on the methodological challenges arising from the research on the multitude of economic transformation trajectories of the post-Communist countries (in Central and Eastern Europe and in the post-Soviet Eurasia) and their societal outcomes. One of the most contested issues between area studies and broader social sciences has been the need to, first, understand how concepts and theories developed in a particular environment ‘travel’ across different regions, and second, whether the empirical research methods are able to produce interesting results in different regional contexts (taking into account the specifics of local societies, data availability, constraints for researchers etc.). In some cases, this discussion is fairly elaborate (this is the case, in particular, for China). In case of the post-Communist world, this discussion has been more limited and, if happened at all, frequently detached from the actual empirical work done by social scientists. The workshop attempts to bridge this gap, with its two parts: the methods round table (devoted explicitly to understanding the conceptual and empirical challenges associated with studying post-Communist regions) and three thematical panels, where research papers on certain topics should be presented and demonstrate the actual empirical challenges researchers face.

East Side Story of Ecological Globalization

The aim of the workshop is to integrate the ‘Eastern’ story into explanations of global environmental processes. Participants will explore the role that the Soviet Union played in an “ecological turn” of the 1970s, and what impact this had, in turn, on the Soviet Union.  By the mid- to late-1980s, in the context of perestroika and glasnost, socialist nations experienced a rapid and extensive rise in ecological consciousness. Public activities took hundreds of thousands of people to the streets and contributed decisively to the de-legitimation of the rule of the Soviet Party state. Only a few years later, however, ecology had lost its mobilizing effect almost completely. The workshop will look at both the rise of this phenomenon and its decline in the 1990s after the breakup of the USSR.

Employment Adjustments around Childbirth

Ein Vortrag von Filip Pertold (CERGE-EI and IDEA, Prague) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 16.5.2017
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: WiOS, Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

Using longitudinal data from Denmark we study how women active in the labour market react to the event of childbirth. We find that mothers –post first childbirth– are increasingly switching from the competitive private sector to the family-friendly public sector thus significantly changing the composition of employees in each of the sectors. Using a difference-in-differences event study approach we show that within the first years after birth the probability that a mother switches from private to public sector can be fully explained by the convexity of pay with respect to hours worked and the prevalence of part time employment in private sector occupations. Supportive analysis reveals that mothers who move from private into public sector are not motivated to switch by low wage growth in the private sector, are promoted to higher occupation rank in the public sector, and do not suffer from a post-switch wage drop. This suggests that the public sector attracts relatively productive female employees away from the private sector, i.e., a post motherhood brain drain. Such sorting behaviour increases the gender wage gap observed in the private sector. These results can be generalized to other settings with high mobility of labour and where jobs differ according to the degree to which they allow for family-friendly work conditions.

Russia’s agricultural import substitution policy: Price volatility effects on the pork supply chain

Ein Vortrag von Linde Götz (Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Transition Economies [IAMO]) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 11. Mai 2017 (Donnerstag!)
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: WiOS, Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

The pork sector has been at the centre of Russia’s import substitution policy. It has shown a very dynamic development reaching the government’s aim to increase self-sufficiency to 85% in 2015. However, this policy is facing several challenges. Results of a DCC-MGARCH model confirm our hypothesis that price volatility and thus risk have increased strongly in the pork supply chain in Russia.
Concurrently, the volatility spill-overs between the price of slaughtered pork and the price of live swine have more than doubled, indicating increased price interdependence.

Temporal and Spatial Dependence of Interregional Risk Sharing: Evidence from Russia

Ein Vortrag von Jarko Fidrmuc (Zeppelin University/IOS research fellow)  im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 9. Mai 2017
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: WiOS, Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

We present an analysis of interregional consumption risk sharing in Russia between 1999 and 2009 using novel estimation methods. In addition to standard fixed effects panel estimations, we use system and difference GMM estimators to reflect time dynamic properties possible endogeneity between output and consumption. Furthermore, we apply spatial models that controls for spatial dependence across regions. The results show that regional consumption deviations from the national average are highly persistent in time and space. Nevertheless, regional consumption risk sharing in Russia is relatively high with 70 to 90 per cent of idiosyncratic risk being smoothed. Finally, fiscal policy and the degree of financial development appear to contribute to the consumption smoothing.

The Bulgarian happiness (in)efficiency

Ein Vortrag von Olga Popova (IOS Regensburg) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 2.5.2017
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: WiOS, Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

Despite the burgeoning happiness economics literature, scholars have largely ignored  explorations of how individuals or countries translate given resources into well-being.  Using a balanced panel on 91 countries from Gallup Analytics between 2009-2014 and  borrowing insights from production theory, we investigate whether nations in our  sample efficiently convert their current resources (i.e. income, education and health)  into subjective well-being. Our results imply that happiness efficiency gains are  possible worldwide. We find that unemployment and involuntary part-time employment  reduce efficiency, while good institutions as proxied by the rule of law, as well as social  support and freedom perceptions improve it. Within-country investigations for Bulgaria,  an upper-middle-income country that often lurks at the bottom of the international  happiness rankings, demonstrate that efficiency is lower among the unemployed,  divorced/separated, widowed, the old, large households and those with children, while  living in a city, freedom, generosity and social support improve efficiency. This paper  provides the first evidence from an international panel concerning whether higher well-being  levels are possible with current resources and raises policy-relevant questions  about the appropriate instruments to improve happiness efficiency.
