  • Editors’ introduction
    • Pages: 181 - 182
      Abstract: The papers in this issue were presented at the April 2017 panel meeting in Valletta (Malta) and the October 2017 panel meeting in Brussels (Belgium). All four papers consider critical and current policy issues and triggered lively discussions during the meetings. They gauge whether interest rate changes have an impact on non-durable consumption, the effect of exchange rate appreciation on economic activity, different financing modes for tertiary education, and the pros and cons of more flexible retirement arrangements.

  • Interest rate changes, mortgages, and consumption: evidence from Italy
    • Authors: Jappelli T; Scognamiglio A.
      Pages: 183 - 224
      Abstract: SUMMARYUsing the Italian Survey of Household Income and Wealth, we study whether the drop in interest rates following the Great Recession was associated with an increase in consumption for households with Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARM) relative to those with Fixed Rate Mortgages (FRM). After the reduction in mortgage payments, consumption of ARM holders increases relative to FRM but the implied marginal propensity to consume is not statistically different from zero. We suggest three explanations for the weak consumption response to the income shock. First, cash-on-hand and debt heterogeneity may attenuate the consumption response. Second, borrowers believe that the income shock was short-lasting, and that interest rates would likely increase in the future, implying a small effect on consumption. Third, the shock is offset partly by a reduction in income from financial assets owned by mortgagors. The findings have implications for the conduct of monetary policy interventions and the credibility of the future path of interest rates, pass-through of monetary policy, and design of the mortgage market.

  • Can appreciation be expansionary' Evidence from the euro area
    • Authors: Lane P; Stracca L.
      Pages: 225 - 264
      Abstract: SUMMARYWe identify exogenous effects of shifts in effective exchange rates for euro area (EA) countries between 1999 and 2016. The identification strategy is based on an external instrument built on the assumption that movements in the euro nominal effective exchange rate are largely exogenous for individual EA countries once we control for EA aggregates. We find that a real appreciation creates a trade-off between expenditure switching (contractionary) and terms of trade (expansionary) effects, with the latter prevailing in most countries. We also find some heterogeneity in the way movements in the euro exchange rate are transmitted within the EA, in particular between ‘core’ and ‘peripheral’ countries, although differences are mostly not statistically significant.

  • The economics of financing higher education
    • Authors: Diris R; Ooghe E.
      Pages: 265 - 314
      Abstract: SUMMARYDifferent arguments exist pro and contra tax-financed subsidies in higher education. It has been argued that private incentives to study are sufficiently high, while the financing of those subsidies can be deemed regressive as they are co-financed by relatively poorer non-students. Alternatively, several arguments have been put forward why (higher) tax-financed subsidies are desirable, such as externalities and credit constraints. This study scrutinizes these different arguments and discusses the implications for the different ways in which higher education can be financed. Calculations of private returns across the OECD confirm that private incentives to invest in higher education are high. However, economic theory poses that it is the marginal social return that must guide policy, which will reflect both equity and efficiency considerations. We assess the potential regressivity of higher education subsidies using different perspectives, and assess the different efficiency arguments for government intervention in higher education. Tax-financed subsidies turn out to be regressive in most cases, but depending on the perspective and the country under examination. Discussion of the efficiency arguments is focused on those that are most relevant in light of the empirical evidence and their relevance for the different financing modes: externalities, uninsurable risk, credit constraints, and misprediction. We conclude that, to deal with the more credible failures in higher education, tax-financed subsidies are blunt instruments. For a large share of the countries under consideration, shifting towards income-contingent loans or graduate taxes appears more appropriate when taking into account both efficiency and equity considerations.

  • Dangerous flexibility – retirement reforms reconsidered
    • Authors: Börsch-Supan A; Bucher-Koenen T, Kutlu-Koc V, et al.
      Pages: 315 - 355
      Abstract: SUMMARYFlexible retirement is supposed to increase labour supply of older workers without touching the third rail of pension politics, the highly unpopular increase of the retirement age. While this may have intuitive appeal, this paper shows that it might be wishful thinking. Economic theory tells us that flexible retirement policies can have a zero or positive effect on labour force participation (LFP) while the effect on hours worked can be positive or negative depending on the distribution of leisure preferences. Thus, the overall effect is ex ante unclear. Empirical results from nine OECD countries show that the effect on LFP is ex post small and positive while the effect on hours worked is negative. Overall, there is no evidence of the desired positive effect on total labour supply (TLS). We conclude that the flexibility reforms enacted so far are dangerous instruments if one wants to increase TLS because they postpone or even replace the instalment of more effective policies and may, even worse, reduce total labour volume.
