Jahrbücher f. Nationalökonomie u. Statistik (Lucius & Lucius, Stuttgart 2006) Bd. (Vol.) 226/2 Sectoral Heterogeneity in the Employment Effects of Job Creation Schemes in Germany By Marco Caliendo, Berlin, Reinhard Hujer, Frankfurt/M., and Stephan L. Thomsen, Frankfurt/M.* JEL H43, J68, C13 Evaluation, job creation schemes, employment effects, sectoral heterogeneity. Summary Job creation schemes (JCS) have been one important programme of active labour market policy (ALMP) in Germany for a long time. They aim at the re-integration of hard-to-place unem

Employment Effects of Modern Technology A Wide Range of Empirical Findings and Competing Approaches of Analytical Integration Ronald Schettkat and Michael Wagner Technical progress influences a wide range of factors on which economists base their explanations of economic processes. New products are developed, opening additional possibilities to the consumer, the production of goods and services can be more effectively organized leading to higher incomes and shorter working hours. Finally, new skill requirements develop, while traditional skills and

market creates unemployment ( Brown 1999 ). Yet, many evaluation studies fail to find any discernible employment effects (see, e. g. Dube et al. 2010 , 2016 ; Cengiz et al. 2019 ). Theoretically, this may be rationalised by monopsonistic competition ( Manning 2003 ). Concerning the German reform, previous studies found no discernible employment effects ( Ahlfeldt et al. 2018 ; Dustmann et al. 2019 ) or at most moderately negative effects ( Bossler/Gerner 2019 ; Caliendo et al. 2018 ). Furthermore, some studies have identified a positive impact on regular

The Econometrics and Economics of the Employment Effects of Minimum Wages: Getting from Known Unknowns to Known Knowns† David Neumark* UCI, NBER, IZA and CESifo Abstract. I discuss the econometrics and the economics of past research on the effects of minimum wages on employment in the United States. My intent is to try to identify key questions raised in the recent literature, and some from the earlier literature, which I think hold the most promise for understanding the conflicting evidence and arriving at a more definitive answer about the employment effects of

1 Introduction While the employment effects of minimum wage legislation are straightforward in simple models of the labor market, 1 the research literature has been somewhat less settled. The controversial analyses of the New Jersey–Pennsylvania state minimum wage difference ( Card and Krueger 1994 ) reported a positive employment effect of an increase on employment in fast food restaurants, a finding that was cited by President Clinton in support of legislation to increase the minimum wage in 1996 and 1997. Subsequent research by Neumark and Wascher (2000

Revisiting the Employment Effects of Minimum Wages in Europe Michael Christl, Monika K€oppl-Turyna and Denes Kucsera Agenda Austria Abstract. The aim of this study is to estimate the relationship between the mini- mum wage and the employment rate of young individuals, taking into account potential nonlinearity. In a cross-country setup of European countries, we find a significant non- linear relationship between the minimum wages and employment rate of young individ- uals. Theoretically, while low minimum wages can indeed be positively associated with employment

Jahrbücher f. Nationalökonomie u. Statistik (Lucius & Lucius, Stuttgart 2007) Bd. (Vol.) 227/3 Employment Effects of Innovation at the Firm Level By Stefan Lachenmaier, Munich, and Horst Rottmann, Weiden∗ JEL J23, O30, L60 Employment, innovation, patent, firm size, panel data. Summary This paper analyzes empirically the effects of innovation on employment at the firm level using a uniquely long panel dataset of German manufacturing firms. The overall effect of innova- tions on employment often remains unclear in theoretical contributions due to reverse effects

HENDRIK FOLMER/JAN OOSTERHAVEN1 14 Measurement of employment effects of Dutch regional socio-economic policy 1. INTRODUCTION In discussions about regional policy, the effects of the instruments of regional policy have been a problem of outstanding importance (see e.g., Folmer and Oosterhaven 1979: Part II). The question of the measure- ment of these effects can shortly be described as attributing changes in the regional system to policy or to autonomous developments. In this paper we intend to deal with this measurement problem in the Dutch case. In this
