PANEL DATA BINARY RESPONSE MODEL IN A TRIANGULAR SYSTEM WITH UNOBSERVED HETEROGENEITY

We relax the common assumption in panel data binary response models that conditional on individual specific unobserved heterogeneity, all covariates are exogenous, and develop a control function method to handle endogeneity and heterogeneity in a parametric setup. The control functions are based on conditional expectations of random effects or random coefficients in the reduced form equations. We discuss semiparametric identification of structural measures using the proposed control functions, and show that they allow for general instruments and imply a weaker restriction compared to control function methods in a similar setup.  The method is applied to estimate the causal effects of household income and wealth and midday-meal at schools on child labor. We present Monte Carlo experiments to compare several estimation techniques.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP PATRIOTISM: THE CASE OF ESTONIANS AND RUSSIAN-SPEAKING MINORITY IN ESTONIA

Entrepreneurship serves as a great source of global growth and finding opportunities for enhancing entrepreneurial activities are in policy agendas of many governments. In addition, entrepreneurship can serve as an integration tool for ethnic minorities. The idea of current research is novel – empirically investigate entrepreneurship patriotism, satisfaction with entrepreneurship environment, and entrepreneurship intention on the example of the minority group of Russian-speakers taking into account the perception of external context. The Environment-Readiness Entrepreneurship Intention questionnaire was developed and survey implemented in March 2017 by the means on a self-reported online questionnaire which resulted in responses from Russian-speakers (n=365) and Estonians (n=1127). The research results indicate that there are significant differences in how entrepreneurship patriotism is evaluated by Russian-speaking minority and Estonians showing that minority group evaluated it significantly lower than representatives of the titular population. Herein the ethnic minority entrepreneurship patriotism hypotheses could be derived for further empirical investigations: higher involvement and integration to entrepreneurship activities of minorities will lead to higher loyalty and attachment to the country of residence. The results also indicate that Russian-speakers have higher intention to start up, but lower satisfaction with entrepreneurship environment. Herein, the minorities entrepreneurship obstruction hypotheses could be proposed according to which minorities perceive realistic and imaginary barriers to start up, but they have high start-up intention. The topic is highly relevant, because of global migration and benefits that could be gained from minorities entrepreneurship.

THE CONTRIBUTION OF MULTINATIONALS TO INEQUALITY: FOREIGN OWNERSHIP AND GENDER WAGE GAP

Whereas there is an abundance of studies documenting the significant wage premium of multinationals (MNE) and the effects of FDI on wage inequality, much less is still known on how foreign ownership affects the gender wage gap of employees at firms.  This study shows, based on employer-employee level data from Estonia – a country in the EU with the largest gender wage gap – a regularity: that foreign owned firms have on average substantially larger gender wage gap than domestic owned firms. Among different occupation groups, this result is especially evident among managers. Furthermore, this difference is also evident if we focus on acquisitions of domestic firms by MNEs and estimate its effects based on propensity score matching. The resulting increase in gender wage gap is due to men capturing higher wage premium from working at foreign owned firms than women, although both tend to gain in terms of wages from being employed at MNEs.  We find some limited evidence suggesting that the foreign owned-domestic owned firm difference in gender wage gap could potentially be explained with MNEs’ requiring more of continuous commitment from their employees compared to other firms.

Sovereign Default and Coalition Formation

The recent Portuguese and Greek histories and empirical research show that central government coalitions play a special role during sovereign debt crises. The empirical literature has confirmed such role by identifying a strong effect of coalitions on the likelihood of sovereign debt default and rescheduling in democracies. In this paper, I develop a sovereign debt model to explain the role of coalitions, and why surplus coalitions are so much more common than previous knowledge would imply. Conditional on the state of the economy, bond prices are weakly higher for coalition government than for single-party government, and this effect is largest when there is a deep recession and the borrowing level is low. Coalitions tend to be formed during periods of mild recession and a large stock of debt. As they are formed in hard times, coalition periods are characterized by high interest rates, which would be higher still under single-party government. Having a long-term perspective favors coalition formation. In general, higher polarization and lower turnover contribute positively to the rate of coalition formation. This provides further rationalization to the formation of surplus coalitions: for large parties, more power increases the incentive to form coalitions. The qualitative real business cycle results of the model are similar to those of other sovereign debt models, and the quantitative results related to sovereign debt are improved.

SKILL PREMIUM DIVERGENCE: THE ROLES OF TRADE, CAPITAL AND DEMOGRAPHICS

We construct an applied general equilibrium model to account for diverging patterns of the skill premium. Our framework assesses the roles of various factors that affect the demand and supply of skilled and unskilled labor — shifts in the skill composition of the labor supply, changes in the terms of trade and the complementarity between skilled labor and equipment capital in production. We find that increases in relative skilled labor supply due to demographic changes lead to a decline in the skill premium, while equipment capital deepening raises the relative demand for skilled labor which in turn increases the skill premium. In addition, terms of trade changes lead to the reallocation of resources towards sectors in which countries enjoy comparative advantages. Since our model incorporates multiple factors simultaneously, it can generate either rising or falling skill premium paths. When we parametrize the model to the Baltic states— countries that were similar along many dimensions at the onset of their transition from centrally-planned to market-oriented economies— our model can closely account for the diverging patterns of skill premia for the period between 1995 and 2008.

CORPORATE TIPPING POINTS AT THE MOMENT OF INSOLVENCY

(The economic importance of understanding corporate bankruptcy. Understanding tipping points by using conflict resolution theory)

 

Remarks by Arnoud Berghuis: I see insolvency as a kind of complex multiparty conflict, where at a certain moment all trust got lost. Simply explained we see at some moment a flourishing organization and suddenly stakeholders withdraw resources and commitment. I tried to understand this complex corporate 'big bang' moment better. Therefore it is important to understand conflict resolution theory first. 

Conflict resolution is a fast growing research field. Conflicts are everywhere in our society. We usually tend to solve conflict through courts and legal systems. Every person even knows personal examples. Recognizing how conflicts really work makes the discussions vivid.

The EU issued an directive with the believe that courts are not always the most efficient way to resolve conflict. http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=celex%3A32013L0011
