  • The Effects of a Maternity Leave Reform on Children's Abilities and
           Maternal Outcomes in Chile
    • Authors: Albagli P; Rau T.
      Pages: 1015 - 1047
      Abstract: This article studies a change in paid maternity leave entitlements in Chile. We exploit a reform that increased paid leave from 12 to 24 weeks for mothers of children born on 25 July 2011 or later. We estimate the effects of reform exposure on different children and maternal outcomes finding significant and positive effects on children's cognitive abilities, especially for those with less educated mothers. There is an increase in the probability of breastfeeding at least six months and breastfeeding durations. Maternal stress exhibits a significant reduction and there is an increase in employment of exposed mothers after maternity leave.

  • Colonial Legacy, State-building and the Salience of Ethnicity in
           Sub-Saharan Africa
    • Authors: Ali M; Fjeldstad O, Jiang B, et al.
      Pages: 1048 - 1081
      Abstract: African colonial history suggests that British colonial rule may have undermined state centralisation due to legacies of ethnic segregation and stronger executive constraints. Using micro-data from anglophone and francophone countries in sub-Saharan Africa, we find that anglophone citizens are less likely to identify themselves in national terms (relative to ethnic terms). To address endogeneity concerns, we utilise regression discontinuity by focusing on observations near anglophone–francophone borders, both across countries and within Cameroon. Evidence on taxation, security and the power of chiefs also suggests weaker state capacity in anglophone countries. These results highlight the legacy of colonial rule on state-building.

  • Effect of Income on Trust: Evidence from the 2009 Economic Crisis in
           Russia
    • Authors: Ananyev M; Guriev S.
      Pages: 1082 - 1118
      Abstract: This article draws on a natural experiment to identify the relationship between income and trust. We use a unique panel data set on Russia where GDP experienced an 8% drop in 2009. The effect of the crisis had been uneven among Russian regions because of their differences in industrial structure inherited from the Soviet period. After instrumenting average regional income by Soviet industrial structure, we find that 10% decrease in income is associated with a five percentage point decrease in social trust. We also find that post-crisis economic recovery did not fully restore pre-crisis trust level.

  • No One Likes To Be Second Choice
    • Authors: Antler Y.
      Pages: 1119 - 1138
      Abstract: A decision-maker wishes to fill a vacancy with a fixed wage. Candidates who are more valuable to the decision maker are less likely to be available. The candidates suffer a disutility from filling the position when they are ranked low on the decision-maker's preference list. However, the decision-maker's preferences are his private information. Therefore, the candidates infer the decision-maker's preference list from information revealed by the number of failed offers. I explore the adverse effect of the social component in the candidates’ preferences on the decision maker's ability to recruit a suitable candidate.

  • At the Root of the North–South Cooperation Gap in Italy: Preferences
           or Beliefs'
    • Authors: Bigoni M; Bortolotti S, Casari M, et al.
      Pages: 1139 - 1152
      Abstract: The sharp gap in development between the North and the South of Italy represents a paradigmatic case of persistent within-country disparities. The evidence suggests that this gap could depend on a difference in the ability to cooperate. We investigate experimentally three possible sources of this difference, and find that Northerners and Southerners share the same pro-social preferences, but differ both in their belief about cooperativeness and in the aversion to social risk, respectively, more pessimistic and stronger among Southerners; intervention or events that reduced pessimistic beliefs should directly boost cooperation.

  • Discount Rates of Children and High School Graduation
    • Authors: Castillo M; Jordan J, Petrie R.
      Pages: 1153 - 1181
      Abstract: We present direct evidence that children who are unwilling to wait for a larger reward and instead prefer a small one earlier (i.e. they have a higher discount rate) are less likely to graduate from high school. Using an incentivised experiment to measure the discount rates of 878 children, we find large effects on human capital accumulation – a one standard deviation increase in the discount rate decreases the probability of graduating from high school by four percentage points. Importantly, the impact of a child's discount rate is distinct from behavioural problems (e.g. disciplinary referrals), academic achievement, risk attitudes, demographics and household environment. Consistent with the existence of non-pecuniary costs to finishing high school, impatient children with poor academic achievement are significantly less likely to graduate than impatient children with high achievement.

  • Redistribution Without Distortion: Evidence from an Affirmative Action
           Programme at a Large Brazilian University
    • Authors: Estevan F; Gall T, Morin L.
      Pages: 1182 - 1220
      Abstract: We examine an innovative affirmative action policy at UNICAMP, a large and highly ranked Brazilian university, designed to enhance access for disadvantaged (public high school) applicants. The university awarded bonus points to targeted applicants in their admission exam. We assess the effect of this policy on the composition of admitted students and investigate possible behavioural responses in terms of examination preparation effort. We find that the policy significantly increased the admission probability of public high school applicants and redistributed university admission towards applicants from families with lower socio-economic status. Surprisingly, we find little evidence of behavioural reactions regarding examination preparation effort.

  • Human Capital, Polarisation and Pareto-improving Activating Welfare
    • Authors: Funk P.
      Pages: 1221 - 1246
      Abstract: Human capital not only earns income but also is a source of direct felicity. The interaction between these two motives for effort can generate multiple stationary solutions for individual household optimisation. This multiplicity freezes any sufficiently unequal initial skill distribution and persistently segregates households into two separate groups: one rich and educated, one poor and uneducated. If public goods are to be financed, polarisation is typically Pareto-inefficient. While unconditional transfers only reduce the incentive to accumulate skills, activating tax-transfer systems that Pareto-dominate any non-redistributing system exist. Transfers are transitory and a negative marginal income tax is imposed on poor households’ income.

  • How Women's Rights Affect Fertility: Evidence From Nigeria
    • Authors: Godefroy R.
      Pages: 1247 - 1280
      Abstract: This article estimates the impact on fertility of a 1999 reform that reduced litigants’ rights for Muslim women in certain states of Nigeria. Using data from Demographic and Health Surveys, I find that, where enforced, the Reform increased the yearly probability of giving birth by 0.026. This effect stems from both a shift of fertility decisions within marriage towards husbands’ preferences and an increase in the probability of being married. The change in marital status alone may explain 60% of the total increase in fertility. I also find that the enforced Reform increased women's labour supply.

  • Explaining the Unexplained: Residual Wage Inequality, Manufacturing
           Decline and Low-skilled Immigration
    • Authors: Gould E.
      Pages: 1281 - 1326
      Abstract: This article investigates whether the increasing ‘residual wage inequality’ trend, which is responsible for most of the wage inequality phenomenon, is related to manufacturing decline and the influx of low-skilled immigrants. The analysis exploits variation across locations in the United States, and shows that a shrinking manufacturing sector increases inequality. This effect strengthens with an influx of low-skilled immigrants. Similar results are found for the increasing return to education and the decline in the employment rate. The evidence suggests that manufacturing decline is producing downward pressure on the relative wages of workers at the low end of the income distribution.

  • The Price Impact of Extreme Weather in Developing Countries
    • Authors: Heinen A; Khadan J, Strobl E.
      Pages: 1327 - 1342
      Abstract: We examine the impact of extreme weather on consumer prices in developing countries by constructing a monthly data set of potential hurricane and flood destruction indices and linking these with consumer price data for 15 Caribbean islands. Our econometric model shows that the price impact of extreme weather events can be large. To illustrate potential welfare losses due to these price effects, we combine our estimates with price elasticities obtained from a demand system and with event probabilities for Jamaica. Our results show that while expected monthly losses are small, rare events can cause large falls in monthly welfare due to price increases.

  • Stochastic Complementarity
    • Authors: Manzini P; Mariotti M, Ülkü L.
      Pages: 1343 - 1363
      Abstract: The Hicksian definition of complementarity and substitutability may not apply in contexts in which agents are not utility maximisers or where price or income variations, whether implicit or explicit, are not available. We look for tools to identify complementarity and substitutability satisfying the following criteria: they are behavioural (based only on observable choice data); model-free (valid whether the agent is rational or not) and they do not rely on price or income variation. We uncover a conflict between properties that it is arguably reasonable for a complementarity notion to possess. We discuss three different possible resolutions of the conflict.

  • Optimising Criminal Behaviour and the Disutility of Prison
    • Authors: Mastrobuoni G; Rivers D.
      Pages: 1364 - 1399
      Abstract: We use rich microdata on bank robberies to estimate individual-level disutilities of imprisonment. The identification rests on the money versus apprehension trade-off that robbers face inside the bank when deciding whether to leave or collect money for an additional minute. The distribution of the disutility of prison is not degenerate, generating heterogeneity in behaviour. Our results show that unobserved heterogeneity in robber ability is important for explaining outcomes in terms of haul and arrest. Furthermore, higher ability robbers are found to have larger disutilities, suggesting that increased sentence lengths might effectively target these more harmful criminals.

  • Homophily and the Persistence of Disagreement
    • Authors: Melguizo I.
      Pages: 1400 - 1424
      Abstract: This article studies the persistence of disagreement using a dynamic model in which individuals update their attitudes by averaging those of others with whom they relate. Individuals establish homophilous relations and thus favour others with similar (dichotomous) attributes. Attributes determine the intensity of relations to the extent to which there is a substantial difference in attitudes between the two groups of individuals possessing and lacking them. The main finding is that disagreement, which materialises in two different groups of thinking, persists if and only if individuals develop sufficiently intense relations over time with others similar in one specific attribute. Relations with dissimilar others deteriorate and thus these two groups emerge.

  • Does Oil Promote or Prevent Coups' The Answer is Yes
    • Authors: Nordvik F.
      Pages: 1425 - 1456
      Abstract: A large literature investigates the relation between oil and conflict, yet no empirical study has found any link between oil and coups d’état. Using a new data set on oil production separated into onshore and offshore volumes, oil price shocks are seen to promote coups in onshore-intensive oil countries, while preventing them in offshore-intensive oil countries. A likely mechanism is that onshore oil motivates military build-ups, while offshore oil does not. From a political leader's point of view, a large military is a double-edged sword because it may turn against him and stage a coup.

  • Commodity and Token Monies
    • Authors: Sargent T.
      Pages: 1457 - 1476
      Abstract: A government defines a dollar as a list of quantities of one or more precious metals. If issued in limited amounts, token money is a perfect substitute for precious metal money. Atemporal equilibrium conditions determine how quantities of precious metals and token monies affect an equilibrium price level. Within limits, a government can peg the relative price of two precious metals, confirming Fisher's (1911) response to a classic criticism of bimetallism. Monometallism dominates bimetallism according to a natural welfare criterion.

  • Standard Setting Organisations and Standard Essential Patents: Voting and
           Markets
    • Authors: Spulber D.
      Pages: 1477 - 1509
      Abstract: The analysis provides conditions under which standard setting organisations (SSOs) choose efficient technology standards. I introduce a two-stage game with both voting and market competition. In equilibrium, standards and market outcomes are efficient even with market power from scarce capacity and standard essential patents (SEPs). I show that a drastic innovation with SEPs generates greater social welfare than a less efficient standard without SEPs. A key finding is that voting power and market power have counterbalancing effects. The discussion helps explain empirical observation of differences in SSO voting rules, intellectual property (IP) rules, membership and alliances.
