Political Cycles in Media Harassment

Ein Vortrag von Nikita Zakharov (Universität Freiburg i.Br.) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 21. Mai 2019
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: Leibniz-Institut für Ost-und Südosteuropaforschung (IOS), Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

This paper explores the political economy of media harassment in Russia. We use a unique monthly dataset on the incidents of media harassment in Russian cities between 2004 and 2017 to establish real political cycles driven by local elections. We find that harassment incidents are 54% more likely to occur during the two months before a local election - a period that coincides with the official period of the electoral campaign. The effect differs with respect to the type of local election: more important elections produce bigger cycles.

The effects of the war in Donbas on the social distance between linguistic and ethnic groups in Ukraine

Ein Vortrag von Laura Eras (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 14. Mai 2019
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: Leibniz-Institut für Ost-und Südosteuropaforschung (IOS), Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

Has the war in Donbas increased the social distance between linguistic and ethnic groups in Ukraine? This question adds to several debates about Ukrainian society, such as the impact of the war on the social, political and economic development of the country, the importance of ethnic and linguistic identities or the nature of Ukrainian nationalism. Apart from a better understanding of Ukraine, the research on this topic allows us to learn more about how conflicts – both international and domestic – affect attitudes towards outgroups. Analyzing survey data (Kyiv International Institute of Sociology omnibus survey) from 1995-2017, I find that the social distance towards Russian-speaking Ukrainians increased after 2014 for ethnic Ukrainians and Ukrainian-speakers. However, this effect is relatively small and short-term. Interestingly, from the point of view of the Russian-speaking Ukrainians, the social distance towards the Ukrainian-speaking population did not increase. The results indicate that interethnic attitudes only slightly worsened after the beginning of the war. This finding suggests that at least on an interpersonal level ethnic and linguistic cleavages have not deepened during the last years.

Self-Selection Into Public Service When Corruption is Widespread: Evidence from Post-Soviet Russia

Ein Vortrag von Dmitriy Vorobyev (Ural Federal University and CERGE-EI Prague) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 7. Mai 2019
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: Leibniz-Institut für Ost-und Südosteuropaforschung (IOS), Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

Drawing on experimental games and surveys conducted with students at two universities in Russia, we compare the behavioral, attitudinal, and demographic traits of students seeking public sector employment to the traits of their peers seeking jobs in the private sector. Contrary to similar studies conducted in other high-corruption contexts, such as India, we find evidence that students who prefer a public sector career display less willingness to cheat or bribe in experimental games as well as higher levels of altruism. One interpretation of these findings is that corruption in Russia results from the transformation of bureaucrats’ behavior and attitudes after entering the civil service, rather than through a process of corrupt self-selection. Another interpretation is that despite widespread corruption, state employment in Russia genuinely attracts at least some of the younger generation for idealistic reasons beyond personal enrichment or job security. Implications of these and other interpretations for the creation of effective anti-corruption policies and for understanding of state capacity in contexts where corruption is widespread are discussed.

The Causal Effects of R&D subsidies Revisited: Instrumental variable approach

Ein Vortrag von Oleg Sidorkin (IOS Regensburg) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 23. April 2019
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: Leibniz-Institut für Ost-und Südosteuropaforschung (IOS), Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

We study heterogeneous effects of research and development (R&D) subsidies on applications for intellectual property rights using a unique dataset on the evaluation of grant applications in the Czech Republic over 2011-2014. We exploit variation in the leniency of randomly assigned experts, who evaluate grant applications, to give higher or lower scores as a novel instrumental variable. As a result, we show that R&D subsidies have strong positive short-term effects on propensity to apply for patents and the number of patent applications. We also study whether public subsidies provide incentives to apply for intellectual property rights of inferior quality for reporting purposes, and partially confirm this hypothesis. The main findings are driven to a large extent by firms with higher prior research intensity.

Corporatism and the Labour Income Share

Ein Vortrag von Mario Holzner (The Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies/Wiener Institut für Internationale Wirtschaftsvergleiche) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 16. April 2019
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: Leibniz-Institut für Ost-und Südosteuropaforschung (IOS), Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

The aim of this paper is to evaluate the changing impact of corporatism – cooperation between business, labour and state interest groups – over the period 1960-2010 and across industrialised economies on the development of the share of labour in national income. Also due to data issues this relationship has not been extensively analysed in the literature so far. A new time-variant corporatism index developed by Jahn (2016) allows us to fill this gap. Using different panel data techniques, samples and control variables, our main results suggest that there is a robust non-linear relationship at work. While the linear effects of both corporatism and the public sector share are positive, the coefficient of the interaction term of these two institutional indicators is negative and hence indicates a negative slope for countries with both a high level of corporatism and a large government share in GDP in explaining the change as well as the level of the adjusted wage share in the long run. To a certain extent the two institutions can be seen as substitutes. In countries where the role of the state has been reduced, the existence of a more centralised wage bargaining system has limited the extent of the fall in the share of labour in national income. In countries with less prevalent collective bargaining systems, a similar effect can be achieved by higher government spending. We therefore argue for a stronger role for centralised wage bargaining in economic policy-making, especially in countries where the share of government spending in GDP is low.
