Sub-National Political Regimes and Formal Economic Regulation: Evidence from Russian Regions

Ein Vortrag von Alexander Libman (Ludwig-Maximilians Universität München) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 18.4.2017
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: WiOS, Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

The paper contributes to the studies of effects of political regimes on public policies by looking at a previously unexplored aspect of this issue: the propensity of political regimes to create vast and extensive formal regulation. To study this topic, it applies sub-national comparative method and uses a dataset of sub-national regions of Russia, which provides a unique opportunity for a large-N investigation of the research question because of substantial variation of regional political regimes and regulatory environments and because of availability of a proxy for comparing the use of formal regulation across regions. The paper shows that more competitive regimes are more likely to expand the formal law than less competitive ones; however, the implications of this expansion of formal law for the economy are ambiguous.

Wealth inequality in the long run: A Schumpeterian growth perspective

Ein Vortrag von Francesco Venturini (University of Perugia) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 21.4.2017 (Freitag, Beginn 10 Uhr!)
Zeit: 10.00 Uhr
Ort: WiOS, Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

This paper studies the dynamics of wealth inequality over the long-term horizon based on a Schumpeterian version of Piketty's laws of capitalism. First, we derive the determinants of the wealth-to-income ratio by extending the quality-ladder growth model a la Grossman and Helpman (1991b) to allow for physical capital accumulation. Second, we test the predictions of the model through a long-run econometric investigation covering the period 1870-2013 for 18 OECD countries. We find that, along with investment in physical capital, wealth inequality rises with the rate of investment in R&D whenever these activities do not translate into adequate rates of innovation and in turn in faster rates of economic growth.
