The Political Cycle of Road Traffic Accidents

Ein Vortrag von Paola Bertoli (University of Economics in Prague) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 12. Februar 2019
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: Leibniz-Institut für Ost-und Südosteuropaforschung (IOS), Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

Road traffic accidents often mean lost productivity and medical expenditures. We explain trends in traffic accidents as a function of the political cycle using municipal data from Italy. We show that during municipal election years, the accident rate increases by 2.2%, with a 2.5% increase in the injury rate but no effect on the fatality rate. The effects are stronger in the two quarters prior the quarter in which the election is held, when the electoral campaign is intense, and in the second quarter after the election, when the elected mayor takes office. We argue that this is the result of a decrease in ticket rates during election years, as the expenditures on traffic police increase. Our results are robustly driven by the municipal political cycle defined in different ways, and their magnitude and direction are not explained by spillover effects between municipalities. Proximity to a national police station reduces the impact of local elections on injury rates.

Doubling Up or Moving Out? The Effect of International Labor Migration on Household Size

Ein Vortrag von Ksenija Gatskova (IOS Regensburg) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 5. Februar 2019
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: Leibniz-Institut für Ost-und Südosteuropaforschung (IOS), Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

Previous literature suggests that households may react to wealth fluctuations by increasing or decreasing the number of members sharing the same residence. We use a unique three-wave household panel data from Tajikistan to explore the change in household size as a response to income shifts related to international labor migration. In addition, we analyze the interaction between effects of idiosyncratic income increase resulted from a successful migration episode and the one of an aggregate shock – the global financial crisis – and show how different households adjust their family size during times of financial hardship. The empirical evidence indicates that the successful migration episode two years before the interview was associated with a decrease in family size due to some of the family members’ moving out. At the same time, people were more likely to live in larger households during the crisis year than before and after the crisis. Empirical analysis yields that migrant families were not different from non-migrant families with respect to the doubling up as response to financial crisis, which suggests that labor migration in Tajikistan does not insure against economic shocks in the long run.

Conflict and Trade: Evidence from Russian-Ukrainian Trade Transactions

Ein Vortrag von Vasily Korovkin (CERGE-EI and UCLA Anderson School of Management) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 29. Januar 2019
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: Leibniz-Institut für Ost-und Südosteuropaforschung (IOS), Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

This study presents novel evidence on the effects of conflict on trade in non-conflict areas. We examine the context of the ongoing Russian military intervention in Ukraine. In a difference-in-differences framework, we leverage a newly compiled firm-level panel with the universe of Ukrainian trade transactions from 2013 through 2016 and exploit substantial spatial variation in the ethnolinguistic composition of Ukrainian counties. The estimates suggest that Ukrainian firms from counties with fewer ethnic Russians experienced a deeper decline in trade with Russia. We argue that this result stems from increased inter-ethnic tensions and a differential rise in negative attitudes and beliefs about Russia. Evidence indicates that possible mechanisms include consumer boycotts of Russian products, reputational concerns of Ukrainian firms, and a breakdown of trust in contract enforcement. In contrast, we find no evidence for individual-level animosity between firms’ key decision makers or discrimination at the border. We also rule out that the differential decline in trade only arises from economic spillovers, such as refugee flows and destruction of supply chains with conflict areas.

The Impact of Financial Resources on Corporate Inventions

Ein Vortrag von David Heller (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 15. Januar 2019
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: Leibniz-Institut für Ost-und Südosteuropaforschung (IOS), Landshuter Str. 4 (Raum 109)

This paper empirically investigates the impact of financial resources on firm-level patenting. The study utilizes the European Commission’s effort to harmonize financial markets, the so-called Financial Service Action Plan, during the 2000s as a plausibly exogenous shift improving firms’ access to funding. First, I show that financial market harmonization leads to increased bank lending to ex ante financially constrained firms. Second, I study whether and how affected firms adjust their patenting activities in terms of several value-relevant characteristics. I find that increased funding is associated with more patents in quantitative terms but of lower average technological quality and value. Moreover, affected firms alternate towards filing fewer explorative (i.e. impactful and generally applicable) but rather incremental patents. These results illustrate a more multilayered impact of finance on inventive activities than commonly suggested. I thus provide novel insights on the role of financial resources as crucial input factor for firm-level inventions against the background of a recent political agenda.
