The experts warn not to jeopardize the clearly positive effects of the recent reform efforts. The "Petersberg Declaration" also proposes an economic orientation of German immigration legislation and an improvement of the market for social services, which has so far been dominated by voluntary work.

by Cigno, Alessandro | Institute for the Study of Labor.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Conventional pension systems suffer from a design defect which makes them financially unsustainable, and a source of inefficiency for the economy as a whole.

Can workers' expectations account for the persistence of discrimination? /

by Filippin, Antonio | Institute for the Study of Labor.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor. Discussion paper : no. 4490.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: October 2009Summary: The paper explains how workers' expectations of being discriminated against can be self-confirming, accounting for the persistence of unequal outcomes in the labour market even beyond the causes that originally generated them. The theoretical framework used is a two-stage game of incomplete information in which one employer promotes only one among two workers after having observed their productivity, which is used as a signal of their ability. Workers who expect to be discriminated against exert a lower effort on average, because of a lower expected return, thereby being promoted less frequently even by unbiased employers. This implies that achievements of minority groups may not improve when the fraction of discriminatory employers actually decreases, and such a mechanism is robust both to trial work periods and to affirmative actions like quotas.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
