Workshops, conferences and other events, 12.05.2021 15:00-16:30, https://events.oecd-berlin.de/97

When the vaccinations finally progress and the economy recovers again, it is also a matter of profound structural changes in energy consumption, production, consumption and mobility. For this is the only way to achieve CO2 neutrality by the middle of the century in order to limit climate change. The European Union wants to make its contribution with the Green Deal. However, the project can only be successful if its members and partner countries pursue a coherent policy. But what climate and environmental policy impulses do the crisis and economic stimulus programmes of the EU, its member countries and neighbours really provide? And what policies are needed now to ensure that the recovery of COVID-19 is accompanied by a successful green transformation of our economies?

Paid parental leave schemes have been shown to increase women's employment rates but decrease their wages in case of extended leave durations. In view of these potential trade-offs, many countries are discussing the optimal design of parental leave policies. We analyze the impact of a major parental leave reform on mothers' long-term earnings. The 2007 German parental leave reform replaced a means-tested benefit with a more generous earnings-related benefit that is granted for a shorter period of time. Additionally, a "daddy quota" of two months was introduced. To identify the causal effect of this policy on long-run earnings of mothers, we use a difference-in-difference approach that compares labor market outcomes of mothers who gave birth just before and right after the reform and nets out seasonal effects by including the year before. Using administrative social security data, we confirm previous findings and show that the average duration of employment interruptions increased for high-income mothers. Nevertheless, we find a positive long-run effect on earnings for mothers in this group. This effect cannot be explained by changes in working hours, observed characteristics, changes in employer stability or fertility patterns. Descriptive evidence suggests that the stronger involvement of fathers, incentivized by the "daddy months", could have facilitated mothers' re-entry into the labor market and thereby increased earnings. For mothers with low prior-to-birth earnings, however, we do not find any beneficial labor market effects of this parental leave reform.

Welchen Beitrag leisten gemeinnützige Bauvereinigungen zum BIP-Wachstum und in welchem Ausmaß erhöhen sie den privaten Konsum und gesamtwirtschaftliche Investitionen? Antworten darauf gibt die neue Studie "Ökonomische Wirkungen des gemeinnützigen Wohnbaus", die vom Verband gemeinnütziger Bauvereinigungen beauftragt und vom Österreichischen Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung Wien (WIFO) durchgeführt wurde.

Sustainability, Work and Growth Workshop on SDG 8 "Full employment, decent work for all and economic growth" (Sustainability, Work and Growth Workshop on SDG 8 "Full employment, decent work for all and economic growth")
Workshops, conferences and other events, 05.03.2021
Online-Veranstaltung
Organised by: Austrian Institute of Economic Research
Online since: 10.12.2020 0:00
WIFO's Thematic Platform Sustainability and Inclusiveness" is organising an online workshop on SDG 8 "Decent work and economic growth". The United Nation's "Sustainable Development Goals" (SDGs) encompass economic, ecological and social aspects of sustainable and inclusive development and describe central global challenges for Austria and the EU, such as reducing inequality, mitigating climate change or creating appropriate working conditions. Among the 17 SDGs, SDG 8 focuses on full employment, decent work for all and economic growth. Emerging structural changes are accelerating in the COVID-19 crisis and increasing recognition of the global climate crisis is intensifying the questions of sustainable labour markets as well as of sustainable and inclusive economic structures. The conference topic is set on the background of the actual situation facing disruptions and challenges. In this respect, issues and effects on inequality both among the society and countries should be discussed. Another relevant aspect relates to measurement and monitoring instruments.
