The first great recession of the 21st century : competing explanations (2011)
Cheltenham : Edward Elgar
Call number: IASS 16.90013
Description / Table of Contents: The 2008-10 financial crisis and the global recession it created is a complex phenomenon that warrants detailed examination. The various essays in this book utilise several alternative paradigms to provide a plausible explanation and a credible cure. Great detail is given to this important analysis from different theoretical perspectives, presenting a clearer understanding of what went wrong and expounding misinterpretations of current theories and practices. Fourteen insightful chapters by eminent scholars investigate the background of the crisis and draw lessons for economic theory and polic

Arbeitszufriedenheit und Arbeitsbedingungen von Arbeitnehmern aus den "Gastarbeiter-Ländern": Aspekte der betrieblichen Integration ausländischer Arbeiter im Lichte der Daten des sozioökonomischen Panel (2016)
Universität Lüneburg, Institut für Mittelstandsforschung Lüneburg
Publication Date: 2016-07-28
Description: Der vorliegende Beitrag berichtet über empirische Ergebnisse zur Arbeitszufriedenheit und zu den Arbeitsbedingungen von ausländischen Arbeitnehmern. Er stützt sich dabei auf die Daten des Sozioökonomischen Panels. Betrachtet werden Personen, die aus den sogenannten Gastarbeiterländern Türkei, Italien, Spanien, Griechenland und dem ehemaligen Jugoslawien stammen. Außerdem erfolgt eine Eingrenzung auf die Gruppe der Arbeiter. Umfängliche Untersuchungen zur Arbeitssituation der ausländischen Arbeitnehmer wurden insbesondere in den 1970er Jahren angestellt, so auch im Mannheim-Paderborner Ausländerprojekt, auf dessen Hauptergebnisse im vorliegenden Beitrag ebenfalls kurz eingegangen wird. Daran anknüpfend geht es im Weiteren um die Frage, ob sich in den letzten 30 Jahren die Arbeitsbedingungen und der Arbeitszufriedenheit der ausländischen Arbeiter merklich verändert haben.

Logistikqualifikation und Gamification: Der wissenschaftliche und fachpraktische Ansatz des Projektes MARTINA (2016)
ILD Essen
Publication Date: 2016-07-28
Description: Logistics commands a huge variety of dynamic developments, driven by technological, organizational as well as market changes. Within this dynamic environment, logistics management demands a competent and flexible workforce, updated by current training and qualification tools. This research paper is presenting an analysis of current trend and technology topics within logistics and their connection as well as supply with state-of-the-art training tools. Specifically, the trend of gamification in qualification and education is described and applied to the logistics qualification sector. The paper also outlines the basic ideas and concepts for the research and development project MARTINA in Germany.

Demographic change and regional convergence in Canada (2016)
Universität Hohenheim Stuttgart-Hohenheim
Publication Date: 2016-07-28
Description: We examine the role of demographic change for regional convergence in living standards in Canada. Due to economies of scale within a family, decreasing household size has an impact on convergence in living standards, while per capita income convergence remains unaffected. We find that, by relying on per capita income, the dispersion of living standards between Canadian regions is overestimated prior to the 1990s and underestimated thereafter. As a consequence, relying on income per capita results in overestimating the speed of convergence in living standards.

Aufstiegsmobilität und -chancen auf dem regionalen Arbeitsmarkt: Stand und Entwicklungspotenzial in der regionalen Logistik (2016)
Institut Arbeit und Wirtschaft (IAW), Universität Bremen und Arbeitnehmerkammer Bremen Bremen
Publication Date: 2016-07-28
Description: Vor dem Hintergrund des demografischen Wandels und sich abzeichnender partieller Fachkräfteengpässe bietet Aufstiegsmobilität durch Qualifizierung Vorteile für Unternehmen und Beschäftigte. Höherqualifizierung von Geringqualifizierten kann zur Deckung des Fachkräftebedarfs beitragen. Arbeitnehmer und Arbeitnehmerinnen können durch Höherqualifizierung ihre berufliche Position verbessern; für Geringqualifizierte kann Qualifizierung einen Weg aus prekärer Beschäftigung eröffnen. Ausbau und Nutzung dieser Chancen setzt vor allem eine entsprechend ausgerichtete betriebliche Personalpolitik voraus. Es wurde untersucht, welchen Stellenwert Höherqualifizierung und Aufstiegsmobilität in der Personalentwicklung von Unternehmen haben und welche betrieblichen und überbetrieblichen Qualifizierungsstrukturen bereits nutzbar bzw. auszubauen sind. Dabei wurden hemmende und förderliche Bedingungen identifiziert und Handlungsempfehlungen für die Betriebe und die Region entwickelt. Die Logistik bildet ein regional wichtiges Beschäftigungsfeld und wird weiterhin als Wachstumsbranche eingeschätzt. Darüber hinaus wird sie als Wirtschaftsbereich gehandelt, in dem niedrigschwellige Eintritte in Beschäftigung und in Qualifizierungsketten möglich erscheinen. [...]

Trade, testing and toasters: Conformity assessment procedures and the TBT Committee (2016)
World Trade Organization, Economic Research and Statistics Division Geneva
Publication Date: 2016-07-28
Description: Even if traders adapt to technical regulations and standards in an export market, they still must prove compliance by undergoing conformity assessment procedures (CAPs), such as testing, inspection, or certification. Duplication, delays or discrimination in CAPs can significantly increase trade costs, and this risk is reflected in the growing importance of CAPs in WTO discussions and bilateral and regional free trade agreements. This paper conducts an empirical study of the trade issues that WTO Members encounter with CAPs as described in specific trade concerns (STCs) raised in the WTO Committee on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) during 2010-2014. We observe that CAPs raise proportionally more concern among WTO Members than technical regulations do, and that testing and certification are the procedures that most frequently give rise to trade problems. Within the framework of the TBT Agreement, we find that questions around transparency and whether CAPs create unnecessary barriers to trade are the two most prominent issues highlighted by Members.

PAPER (OA)
General equilibrium trade policy analysis with structural gravity (2016)
World Trade Organization, Economic Research and Statistics Division Geneva
Publication Date: 2016-07-28
Description: The objective of this manuscript is to serve as a practical guide for evaluation of the general equilibrium (GE) effects of trade policy using the structural gravity model. We try to achieve this objective in four steps. First, we focus on the original Armington CES gravity model, as a representative framework for a large class of GE models, to offer a deep analysis of the structural relationships underlying the general equilibrium gravity system, and how they can be exploited to make trade policy inferences. Second, we present and discuss a series of indexes that can be used to summarize the GE effects of trade policy. Third, we summarize the standard procedures to perform counterfactual analysis with the gravity model, and we outline recent methods to obtain theory-consistent GE effects of trade policy with a simple estimation procedure that can be performed in any statistical software package capable of estimating a poisson model (e.g. Stata). Finally, we demonstrate how gravity can be integrated with a broader class of general equilibrium models by nesting the Armington-CES model within a dynamic production superstructure with capital accumulation.
