the top earners’ average income tax rate. Corresponding to sociological findings on the cohesion of national elites (see Hartmann 2002 ) and building on public choice theory and especially Barro’s ( 1973 ) approach to political income, principal agent theory and career concerns (see Fama 1980 ; Lazear/Rosen 1981 ; Holmström 1982 ), this study answers the abovementioned question by investigating the extent to which an increasing percentage of former executive or supervisory board members in the German Federal Governments affects the national top earners’ average

207BuE 66 (2013) 2 Rainer Böhm DIE „DUNKLE SEITE“ DER BETREUUNG IN DER KINDHEIT1 Summary: Permanently exposing infants and toddlers to chronic stress is unethical, conflicts with human rights, and triggers acute and chronic illness. Despite increasing and convincing evidence of these harmful effects German Federal Government and powerful trade-associations continue their policy to expand the early child-care institutions.

Contrary to this perception, we find that inflation-adjusted rents net of heat- ing are even lower today than twenty years ago. Furthermore, our regionally disaggregated data on ask prices for flats reveal that rapidly increasing rents can

, both policy makers and researchers have been searching for solutions to overcome the disincentives on labor supply generated by income allowances for welfare recipients (Unemployment Benefit II). Taking proposals of the German Economic Institute (IW) and the governing Liberal Party (FDP) as a starting point, the German Federal Government has intensely discussed this topic during fall 2010 and finally proposed a reform in legislation. In this study, we analyze the potential labor supply effects of the legislated reform and the preceding proposals. In a second step, we

Summary The Governmental Provision of Early Childhood Education and Care In this article it is argued that the extension of early childhood education and care, as currently pursued by both the German federal government and the federal states, cannot be justified by standard economic criteria of government action. Some recent results of empirical research indicate that early child care carries both benefits and risks for infants and toddlers. In addition, potential external gains for society as



In the coalition agreement from February 7, 2018, the new German federal government drafts its public pension policy, which has to be evaluated against the background of demographic dynamics in Germany. In this paper, the consequences of public pensions related policy measures for the German public pension insurance are illustrated using a simulation model. In the long run, the intended extensions of benefits would lead to an increase in the contribution rate to the German public pension insurance of about two and a half percentage points. Referring to pension systems of other countries, we discuss measures in order to limit this increase in the contribution rate.
