Open labor markets and Firms’ substitution between training apprentices and hiring workers

Aepli, Manuel ; Kuhn, Andreas

In this paper, we study whether Swiss employers substitute between training apprentices and hiring cross-border workers. Because both training apprentices and hiring skilled workers are costly for firms, we hypothesize that (easier) access to cross-border workers will lead some employers to substitute away from training their own workers. We account for potential endogeneity issues by...

Das House Kapital

Grossmann, Volker ; Larin, Benjamin ; Steger, Thomas

(Working Papers SES ; 523)

The housing wealth-to-income ratio has been increasing in most developed economies since the 1950s. We provide a novel theory to explain this long-term pattern. We show analytically that house prices grow in the steady state if i) the housing sector is more land-intensive than the non-housing sector. Despite growing house prices and housing wealth, the housing wealth-to income ratio is...

On the Determinants of Giving Under Risk

Freundt, Jana ; Lange, Andreas

In: Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, 2017, vol. 142, p. 24-31

By means of a laboratory experiment we investigate the role of risk preferences for prosocial behavior. Modifying the way the decision-maker or the recipient are exposed to risk, our design allows to identify how risk preferences impact giving-decisions. By measuring the decision-makers’ risk preferences regarding both their own as well as the recipients’ payoff, we generate new insights...

‘If the phone were broken, I’d be screwed’ : media use of people with disabilities in the digital era

Baumgartner, Antonia ; Rohrbach, Tobias ; Schönhagen, Philomen

In: Disability & Society, 2021, p. 1-25

Digital media have become integral to the everyday life of people with disabilities. So far, research about disability and digital media use is rather scarce and narrowed on issues of accessibility and social media. This paper draws on qualitative interviews with people with visual or motoric impairments to provide an in-depth analysis of their everyday experiences relating to barriers and...

Paiements extérieurs et crises de dette : Vers un nouvel ordre monétaire international?

Zio, Adonija ; Bradley, Xavier (Dir.) ; Cencini, Alvaro (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020ECO013.

Le paiement de cette dette provoque le plus souvent des déséquilibres internes et des instabilités financières. Les études menées sur la question privilégient l'approche microéconomique et expliquent que le...

Framing sustainability in public procurement by typologizing sustainability indicators : the case of Switzerland

Knebel, Sebastian ; Seele, Peter

In: Journal of public procurement, 2021, p. 22 p

Purpose: Sustainable public procurement (SPP) lacks common means for its operationalization within legislative latitudes. Through the translation of sustainability indicators (SIs) from CSR and corporate sustainability reporting into the needs of SPP, this paper aims to support the framing process of sustainability in public procurement. This paper does so along with the case of Switzerland....

Vorstellungen von Lehrpersonen bezeichnen deren mentale Repräsentationen in ...
