Beitrag von Tillmann Tegeler zu GeoPortOst erschienen

Tillmann Tegeler: Discovering Hidden Maps: Cartographic Representations as Arguments for Historical Narratives, in: Mirela Altić, Imre Josef Demhardt, Soetkin Vervust (Hgg.): Dissemination of Cartographic Knowledge : 6th International Symposium of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography, 2016. Cham 2017, S. 315-329

The national revivals of the 19th century contributed to the nationalization of historiography in Eastern and Southeastern Europe. Maps often illustrated history textbooks of the time and served as an argument for the territorial ambitions of the arising nations. Maps on military operations, boundary lines, medieval statehood or ethnography aimed to prove that a nation had occupied a certain territory for centuries; they functioned as a tool for the legitimation of historical claims. In contrast to national topographic map series, maps printed in books are always related to the surrounding narrative. The contextualization of both text and cartographic representation helps us to understand the function of these maps within a national narrative. Another way to capture the intention of the map is to embed it into the geographic reality. Once maps have been digitized and georeferenced, their projection within a GIS can offer clues about their accuracy. Ultimately, the cartographic representation in relation to the real world gives researchers an analysis tool to resituate maps stating an argument about a discourse within a measurable framework. This method may provide new evidence about the intention of the author’s Statement.

IOS Working Papers No. 368 ist erschienen

Financial Development, Rule of Law and Wealth Inequality: Bayesian Model Averaging Evidence, Roman Horváth, Eva Horvatova, and Maria Siranova, 37 S., IOS Working Papers 368, September 2017.

We examine the determinants of financial development using our global sample and employing a rich set of measures of financial development that assess the degree of depth, access, stability and efficiency of financial intermediaries. We use Bayesian model averaging to test competing theories within this unifying framework. Examining nearly 40 potential determinants of financial development, we find that the rule of law and the level of economic development are the most important. Wealth inequality is irrelevant for banking sector development but positively associated with stock market development. Finally, our results suggest that financial market regulations matter for stock market efficiency and financial stability.

Alcohol Consumption Habits in Eastern and Western Europe

Ein Vortrag von Gintare Malisauskaite (University of Kent) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 10. Oktober 2017
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: WiOS, Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

The paper looks into differences between Eastern and Western Europe alcohol consumption behaviour and suggests treating those differences as an expression of cultural habits. Differences are considered in alcohol consumption frequency and the frequency of binge drinking using the European Health Interview Survey (EHIS) micro data from Eurostat. Model is estimated with Ordered Probit and Conditional Mixed Process (CMP) with Instrumental variable approach. Evidence suggests statistically significant positive effect of the communist regime on both alcohol consumption frequency and binge drinking frequency. This would indicate more permissive attitudes towards alcohol consumption and those attitudes being adopted in Eastern Europe.
