State capacity and local economic development: The Russian state in the Urals

Ein Vortrag von Gerda Asmus (University of California San Diego and Heidelberg University) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 19. Januar 2021
Zeit: 17.00 Uhr!
Ort: Online via Zoom, Anmeldung

This study investigates the causal effect of state capacity at the subnational level on economic development. For this purpose, it takes advantage of the increase in state capacity in the aftermath of the largest peasant rebellion in Tsarist Russia which took place in the southern part of the Urals between 1773 and 1775. There is indeed ample historical evidence suggesting that in the wake of the rebellion, the Russian imperial state increased the number of military and civilian administrators in the southern Urals. The empirical approach compares changes in developmental outcomes in areas marginally affected by the rebellion to those who were marginally not affected, by employing a geographic regression discontinuity design along the boundary of the rebels' movements. The results suggest that the local development of state capacity following the rebellion had persistent effects on economic development until World War I.

The effect of ethnic diversity on income – an empirical investigation using survey data from a post- conflict environment

Ein Vortrag von Geoff Pugh and Adnan Efendic (Staffordshire University/University of Sarajevo) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: 26. Januar 2021
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: Online via Zoom, Anmeldung

This empirical study is based on nationally representative cross-sectional survey data gathered to investigate the effect of ethnic diversity on personal and family incomes in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), a post-conflict society. The 1992–1995 conflict was harmful for ethnic diversity. Yet, two decades later, where it still exists, ethnic diversity gives rise to positive economic consequences. After controlling for other influences, the authors find lower probabilities of respondents in ethnically diverse neighbourhoods being in the lowest income categories but higher probabilities of being in medium and higher income categories. The largest effects are the reduced probabilities of respondents reporting no income, and are thus particularly relevant to poverty reduction. At the limit, their estimates imply an income gap of more than 20 per cent between a counter-factual completely heterogenous environment and a counter-factual completely homogenous environment. Policy makers in this post-conflict country, and in similar environments elsewhere, should take into consideration the economic costs of policies supporting ethnic homogeneity over diversity.
