    Description: Das Leben in Grenzregionen innerhalb der Europäischen Union ist gerade für die jüngeren Generationen oftmals normal geworden. Das Überschreiten der Grenzen gehört zum Alltag. In den letzten Jahren, bis vor der Flüchtlingskrise, verloren nationalstaatliche Grenzen grundsätzlich im Hinblick auf ihre Durchlässigkeit an Bedeutung. Dennoch sind Grenzen und Grenzziehungen nie bedeutungslos geworden. Nationalstaatliche Politiken und Rahmungen bestimmen grundlegende Ausrichtungen, die diesseits und jenseits von Grenzen spezifische Implikationen mit sich bringen. Hiermit gehen Ein- und Abgrenzungsprozesse einher, (regionale) Identitäten, "Wir"-Gefühle und Fragen nach Heimat. Der Beitrag gibt vor diesem Hintergrund eine theoriegeleitete Einführung in zentrale Konstrukte und Konzepte, die im grenzüberschreitenden Kontext Bedeutung erlangen: Grenze(n) und Grenzziehungen, (raumbezogene und regionale) Identitäten sowie Heimat. Am Beispiel der Großregion werden Identifikationsprozesse ausgeleuchtet und eingeordnet.
    Description: Life in the border regions within the European Union has become normal for many people, especially for younger generations. Crossing the borders is part of everyday life. In recent years, until the refugee crisis, nation state borders lost significance due to their increased permeability, although neither borders nor border demarcations have ever become meaningless. National policies and frameworks determine fundamental orientations that have specific implications on both sides of borders. This is associated with processes of inclusion and exclusion, (regional) identities, feelings of belonging and issues concerning a sense of home. Against this background the article provides a theory-driven introduction to central constructs and concepts that gain significance in the cross-border context: border(s) and border demarcations, (spatially related and regional) identities and home. Identification processes are examined and categorised using the example of the Greater Region.

    Description: This paper examines the effects of campaign spending limits on political competition and incumbency advantage. We study a reform in Brazil that imposed limits on campaign spending for mayoral elections. These limits were implemented with a discontinuous kink which we exploit for causal identification. We find that stricter limits increase political competition by creating a larger pool of candidates that is on average less wealthy. Moreover, we find that stricter spending limits reduce the incumbency advantage, causing mayors to be less likely to be reelected. These findings are consistent with a contest model with spending caps and endogenous candidate entry.

    Description: This dissertation was written by Johannes Pfeiffer while he was working with the ifo Institute for Economic Research. It was completed in November 2016 and accepted as a doctoral thesis by the department of economics of the University Regensburg in December 2016. The thesis studies unintended intertemporal reactions of fossil resource supply to climate policies, which often are subsumed under the notion of the green paradox, while taking into account the interrelationship between the resource and the capital market in a general equilibrium framework. Its specific contributions derive from three observations: First, resource markets, in particular of oil and natural gas, are often considered as not being truly competitive. Second, resource-rich countries invest in the international capital market and by now often hold substantial assets, for example in so-called sovereign wealth funds. Third, “green” energy technologies such as renewable energies mostly use physical capital to substitute fossil resources in energy generation, while generally capital and fossil resources are still seen as highly complementary in production. Overall, the thesis illustrates that general equilibrium approaches, particularly when accounting for these observations, can substantially alter the supply-side effects of climate policies.
    Description: Diese Dissertation wurde von Johannes Pfeiffer während seiner Zeit am ifo Institut verfasst. Sie wurde im Dezember 2016 von der Universität Regensburg als Dissertation angenommen. Die Arbeit untersucht unbeabsichtigte intertemporale Reaktionen des fossilen Ressourcenangebots auf klimapolitische Maßnahmen, die oft unter dem Begriff des Grünen Paradoxons gefasst werden. Sie verdeutlicht, dass der Zusammenhang zwischen Ressourcen- und Kapitalmarkt in einem Modell im allgemeinen Gleichgewicht die angebotsseitige Wirkung von klimapolitischen Maßnahmen grundlegend verändern kann. Insbesondere die folgenden Beobachtungen werden in diesem Zusammenhang näher betrachtet: 1. Nach verbreiteter Einschätzung werden fossile Ressourcen, gerade Erdöl und Erdgas, nicht auf vollkommenen Wettbewerbsmärkten gehandelt. 2. Ressourcenreiche Länder investieren am Kapitalmarkt und halten bereits beträchtliche Anlagevermögen, etwa in sogenannten Sovereign Wealth Funds. 3. "Grüne" Technologien wie erneuerbare Energien ersetzten fossile Ressourcen in der Energieerzeugung überwiegend über Einsatz von Kapital, während fossile Ressourcen und Kapital allgemein in der Produktion immer noch als stark komplementär gelten. Die Arbeit stellt dar, dass in Abhängigkeit davon, ob und inwieweit die marktübergreifenden Effekte des Ressourcenangebots im allgemeinen Gleichgewicht internalisiert werden, zusätzliche Motive das Verhalten eines Monopolisten maßgeblich verändern können. Insbesondere ergibt sich aus dem Einfluss des Ressourcenangebots auf die Kapitalrendite im Zusammenspiel mit den Kapitalanlagen des Ressourcenanbieters das sogenannte Asset Motiv, das zugleich einen neuen Wirkungskanal von Klimapolitik eröffnet: Über die Umverteilung von Ressourcenrenten führt Klimapolitik zu einer Anpassung der Anlagetätigkeit, die im Zusammenspiel mit dem Asset Motiv den Monopolisten im Gegensatz zum Grünen Paradoxon zu einer Verlangsamung der Ressourcenextraktion veranlassen kann. Die Kapitalintensität 'grüner' Substitute zu fossilen Ressourcen stellt einen bislang nicht betrachteten Zusammenhang zwischen Ressourcen- und Kapitalmarkt dar und führt damit einen weiteren Wirkungskanal von Klimapolitik in die Literatur ein. Auch ohne zusätzliche Angebotsmotive zeigt sich, dass mit Berücksichtigung dieses Zusammenhangs dem Vorliegen von Marktmacht erneut entscheidende Bedeutung für die Wirkung von Klimapolitik zukommen kann, indem eine Subventionierung des Substituts (nicht jedoch eine CO2-Steuer) in diesem Fall nicht nur die residuale Ressourcennachfrage reduziert, sondern auch die Preiselastizität der Nachfrage verändert.

    Description: Unemployment insurance agencies may combat moral hazard by punishing refusals to apply to assigned vacancies. However, the possibility to report sick creates an additional moral hazard, since during sickness spells, minimum requirements on search behavior do not apply. This reduces the ex ante threat of sanctions. We analyze the effects of vacancy referrals and sanctions on the unemployment duration and the quality of job matches, in conjunction with the possibility to report sick. We estimate multi-spell duration models with selection on unobserved characteristics. We find that a vacancy referral increases the transition rate into work and that such accepted jobs go along with lower wages. We also find a positive effect of a vacancy referral on the probability of reporting sick. This effect is smaller at high durations, which suggests that the relative attractiveness of vacancy referrals increases over the time spent in unemployment. Overall, around 9% of sickness absence during unemployment is induced by vacancy referrals.
    Description: Ein Instrument zur Eindämmung von Moral Hazard in der Arbeitslosenversicherung ist die finanzielle Sanktion in Form einer Sperrzeit. Da jedoch während Krankheitsperioden keine Mindestanforderungen an Suchanstrengungen von Arbeitslosen gelten, entsteht durch die Möglichkeit, sich krank zu melden ein zusätzlicher Moral Hazard. Dies wiederum verringert die Drohwirkung von Sperrzeiten. Unter Berücksichtigung der Möglichkeit, sich krank zu melden, analysieren wir die Auswirkungen von Vermittlungsvorschlägen und Sperrzeiten auf die Dauer der Arbeitslosigkeit und die Qualität der aufgenommenen Jobs.Wir schätzen Multi-Spell Verweildauermodelle mit Selektion basierend auf unbeobachteten Merkmalen. Wir zeigen, dass ein Vermittlungsvorschlag die Übergangsrate in Beschäftigung erhöht und dass dies mit geringeren Löhnen einhergeht.Wir finden auch positive Effekte eines Vermittlungsvorschlags auf die Wahrscheinlichkeit einer Krankmeldung. Dieser Effekt ist geringer in späteren Monaten der Arbeitslosigkeit. Dies legt nahe, dass die relative Attraktivität der Vermittlungsvorschläge im Verlauf der Arbeitslosigkeit ansteigt. Unseren Ergebnissen zufolge sind insgesamt etwa 9 Prozent der Krankmeldungen während der Arbeitslosigkeit ausgelöst durch Vermittlungsvorschläge.

    Description: A decision-maker relies on information of parties affected by her decision. These parties try to influence her decision by selective disclosure of facts. As is well known from the literature, competition between the informed parties constrains their ability to manipulate information. We depart from this literature by introducing a cost to communicate. Our parties trade off their reporting cost against the effect on the decision. Typically, they never reveal all information. A better outcome may be implemented if the decision-maker adopts an active stance by barring one party from reporting or through cheap talk allowing coordination on a particular equilibrium.

    Description: Considering markets with non-pivotal buyers we analyze the anti-competitive effects of breakup fees used by an incumbent facing a more efficient entrant in the future. Buyers differ in their intrinsic switching costs. Breakup fees are profitably used to foreclose entry, regardless of the entrant's efficiency advantage or level of switching costs. Banning breakup fees is beneficial to consumers and enhances the total welfare unless the entrant's efficiency is close to the incumbent's. Inefficient foreclosure arises not because of rent shifting from the entrant, but because the incumbent uses the long-term contract to manipulate consumers' expected surplus from not signing it.

    Description: We study the consequences and optimal design of bank deposit insurance in a general equilibrium model. The model involves two production sectors. One sector is financed by issuing bonds to risk-averse households. Firms in the other sector are monitored and financed by banks. Households fund banks through deposits and equity. Deposits are explicitly insured by a de- posit insurance fund. Any remaining shortfall is implicitly guaranteed by the government. The deposit insurance fund charges banks a premium per unit of deposits whereas the government finances any necessary bail-outs by lump-sum taxation of households. When the deposit insurance premium is actuarially fair or higher than actuarially fair, two types of equilibria emerge: One type of equilibria supports the socially optimal (Arrow-Debreu) allo- cation, and the other type does not. In the latter case, bank lending is too large relative to equity and the probability that the banking system collapses is positive. Next, we show that a judicious combination of deposit insurance and reinsurance eliminates all non-optimal equilibrium allocations.

    Description: We study the impact of economic policy on the importance of history and expectations for the macroeconomic performance of an economy. In our model the energy mix is based on the conversion of heterogeneous energy sources. Markups over marginal costs are endogenous so that the marginal revenue product of capital becomes non-monotonic in capital. We derive multiple steady states and identify regions in which initial conditions are insufficient as a selection criterion for development. In these situations, pure expectations determine the equilibrium selection process which is crucial for long-run performance. Energy policy affects the interplay between history and expectations by shifting the region where expectations matter and by affecting the location of the equilibria in the dirty and the clean economy. We find that taxes and subsidies should be used simultaneously to guide an energy transition. We argue that expectations and momentum effects are important for the energy transition because they decrease policy costs and thus raise political acceptance.

    Description: The paper analyses the effect of interest rate changes on education and child labor in an economy with a high-skilled sector, a low-skilled sector and fragmented credit markets. The high-skilled sector takes educated labor as input. The low-skilled sector takes unskilled labor, physical capital and natural common-pool resources as inputs. Credit supply consists of (a) loans with collateral in form of productive investments in the low-skilled sector and (b) higher-priced loans without collateral. Lower interest rates increase the net present value of the returns to education. They also reduce costs of capital investment in current production. This increases labor productivity and the opportunity costs of education. Overuse of the common-pool resource can reverse this productivity effect. We show that the overall effect of interest rate changes on education depends on the initial wealth of the household, resource use and the credit market segment that is subject to improvements.

    Description: We consider a carbon emissions tax announced today, but implemented after a known time-lag. Before implementation, the announcement induces higher emissions than without intervention. In welfare terms, this adverse announcement effect could more than outweigh the gain after tax implementation. We quantify a ‘critical lag’ such that a shorter (longer) implementation lag is a welfare gain (loss) over nointervention. We identify resource scarcity as the main driver for a short critical lag. The model is a global Ramsey Model extended by an exhaustible carbon resource and linked to a climate model.

    Description: Does the current account improve or deteriorate following a monetary policy expansion? We examine this issue theoretically and empirically. We show that a standard open economy DSGE model predicts that the current account response to a monetary policy shock depends on the degree of economic regulation in different markets. In particular, financial (product market) liberalisation makes it more likely that the current account deteriorates (improves) following a monetary expansion. We test these theoretical predictions with a varying coefficient Bayesian panel VAR model, where the coefficients are allowed to vary as a function of the degree of financial, product and labour market regulation on data from 1976 Q1-2006 Q4 for 19 OECD countries. Our empirical results support the theory. We therefore conclude that following a monetary policy expansion, the current account is more likely to go into deficit (surplus) in countries with more liberalised financial (product) markets.

    Description: Hurdle and zero-in ated models are the two foremost methods used to deal with excess zeros. However, their reliance on the nonparticipation assumption is a drawback when applied to recreation demand analysis because there is not a theoretical framework convincingly explaining presence of non-participants. This paper dis- cusses how latent class count models represent a theoretically consistent alternative to handle excess zeros. The theoretical model behind a latent class model does not require the non-participation assumption. Instead, excess zeros is explained as the accumulation of corner solutions from individuals belonging to different classes.

    Description: Governments design taxation schemes to capture resource rent. However, they usually propose contracts with limited duration and possess less information on the resources than the extractive firms do. This paper investigates how information asymmetry on costs and an inability to commit to long-term contracts affect tax revenue and the extraction path. This paper assumes that governments maximize the tax revenue contingent on the quantity extracted. This study gives several unconventional results. First, when information asymmetry exists, the inability to commit does not necessarily lower tax revenues. Second, under asymmetric information without commitment, an efficient firm may produce during the first period more or less than under symmetric information. Hence, the inability to commit has an ambiguous effect on optimal contract duration. Third, an increase in the discount factor may shift the extraction towards the first period which contradicts Hotelling's rule.

    Description: In credence goods markets, experts have better information about the appropriate quality of treatment than their customers. As experts provide both diagnosis and treatment, this leaves scope for fraud. We experimentally investigate how intensity of price competition and the level of customer information about past expert behavior influence an expert’s incentive to defraud his customers when the expert can build up reputation. We show that the level of fraud is significantly higher under price competition than when prices are fixed. The price decline under competitive prices superimposes quality competition. More customer information does not necessarily decrease the level of fraud.

    Description: Over the past two decades, private equity has contributed to a shrinking of the U.S. stock market. We develop a political economy model of private equity activity to study the wider economic consequences of this trend. We show that private and social incentives to delist firms from the stock market are not always aligned. Private equity firms could inadvertently impose an externality on the economy by reducing citizen-investors' exposure to corporate profits and thus undermining popular support for business-friendly policies. This can lead to long-term reductions in aggregate investment, productivity, and employment.

    Description: This paper analyzes a mechanism through which a supplier of unknown quality can overcome its asymmetric information problem by selling via a reputable downstream …rm. The supplier’s adverse-selection problem can be solved if the downstream …rm has established a reputation for delivering high quality vis-à-vis the supplier. The supplier may enter the market by initially renting the downstream …rm’s reputation. The downstream …rm may optimally source its input externally, even though sourcing internally would be better in terms of productive e¢ ciency. Since an entrant in the downstream market may lack reputation, it may su¤er from a reputational barrier to entry arising from higher input costs.

    Description: In this paper we develop a statistical model of language complexity trade-offs using four typological measures (related to phonology, morphology, syntax and lexicon). The data come from the 100-language sample that appears in the World Atlas of Language Structures (WALS), and the trade-offs are calculated using different types of correlation coefficients. All those coefficients are statistically insignificant when they are computed using a standard (product-moment) methodology, but they become significant when we use simultaneous-equation regression methods, especially the ones based on seemingly unrelated regressions (SUR) and three-stage least squares (3SLS). These results are related to ideas suggested in the theoretical literature, especially in the one about language as a complex adaptive system.

    Description: As in Roemer (1982, chapter 1), this paper considers a simple international trade model and examines the existence and characterization of free trade equilibria involving the unequal exchange of labor (UE). The paper provides an almost complete characterization of the domain of economies in which free trade equilibria with incomplete specialization exist. Moreover, the necessary and sufficient conditions for free trade equilibrium to involve UE is identified. It suggests that the emergence of free trade equilibria with UE cannot be entailed by the competitive mechanism of markets and unequal distribution of wealth alone, but might be understood as an outcome of equilibrium selection on the basis of Nash bargaining between rich and poor nations.

    Description: How strong are strategic complementarities in price setting across firms? In this paper, we provide a direct empirical estimate of firm price responses to changes in prices of their competitors. We develop a general framework and an empirical identification strategy to estimate the elasticities of a firm’s price response to both its own cost shocks and to the price changes of its competitors. Our approach takes advantage of a new micro-level dataset for the Belgian manufacturing sector, which contains detailed information on firm domestic prices, marginal costs, and competitor prices. The rare features of these data enable us to construct instrumental variables to address the simultaneity of price setting by competing firms. We find strong evidence of strategic complementarities, with a typical firm adjusting its price with an elasticity of 35% in response to the price changes of its competitors and with an elasticity of 65% in response to its own cost shocks. Furthermore, we find substantial heterogeneity in these elasticities across firms, with small firms showing no strategic complementarities and a complete cost pass-through, while large firms responding to their cost shocks and competitor price changes with roughly equal elasticities of around 50%. We show, using a tightly calibrated quantitative model, that these findings have important implications for shaping the response of domestic prices to international shocks.

    Description: We study bank supervision by combining a theoretical model that distinguishes supervision from regulation and a novel dataset on work hours of Federal Reserve supervisors. We highlight the trade-offs between the benefits and costs of supervision and use the model to interpret the relationship between supervisory efforts and bank characteristics observed in the data. More supervisory resources are spent on larger, more complex, and riskier banks. However, hours increase less than proportionally with bank size, suggesting the presence of technological economies of scale in supervision. The data also show reallocation of supervisory hours at times of stress and in the post-2008 enhanced supervisory framework for large banks, providing evidence of constraints on supervisory resources. Finally, we show theoretically the limits to assessing supervisory success based on ex post outcomes, as well as benefits of ex ante commitment policies.

    Description: We explore the term structures of claims to a variety of cash flows: U.S. government bonds (claims to dollars), foreign government bonds (claims to foreign currency), inflation-adjusted bonds (claims to the price index), and equity (claims to future equity indexes or dividends). Average term structures reflect the dynamics of the dollar pricing kernel, of cash flow growth, and of their interaction. We use simple models to illustrate how relationships between the two components can deliver term structures with a wide range of levels and shapes.

    Description: In this paper, we use a hypothetical choice methodology to robustly estimate preferences for workplace attributes. Undergraduate students are presented with sets of jobs that vary in their attributes (such as earnings and job hours flexibility) and asked to state their probabilistic choices. We show that this method robustly identifies preferences for various job attributes, free from omitted variable bias and free from considering the equilibrium matching of workers to jobs. While there is substantial heterogeneity in preferences, we find that women, on average, have a higher willingness to pay for jobs with greater work flexibility (lower hours, and part-time option availability) and job stability (lower risk of job loss), while men have a higher willingness to pay for jobs with higher earnings growth. In the second part of the paper, using data on students' perceptions about the types of jobs that would be offered to them conditional on their college major choices, we relate these job attribute preferences to major choice. We find that students perceive jobs offered to humanities majors to have fewer hours, more worktime flexibility, and higher stability than jobs offered to economics/business majors. These job attributes are found to play a role in major choice, with women exhibiting greater sensitivity to nonpecuniary job attributes in major choice.

    Description: In social and economic networks linked agents often share additional links in common. There are two competing explanations for this phenomenon. First, agents may have a structural taste for transitive links - the returns to linking may be higher if two agents share links in common. Second, agents may assortatively match on unobserved attributes, a process called homophily. I study parameter identifiability in a simple model of dynamic network formation with both effects. Agents form, maintain, and sever links over time in order to maximize utility. The return to linking may be higher if agents share friends in common. A pair-specific utility component allows for arbitrary homophily on time-invariant agent attributes. I derive conditions under which it is possible to detect the presence of a taste for transitivity in the presence of assortative matching on unobservables. I leave the joint distribution of the initial network and the pair-specific utility component, a very high dimensional object, unrestricted. The analysis is of the 'fixed effects' type. The identification result is constructive, suggesting an analog estimator, whose single large network properties I characterize.

    Description: This volume includes five self-contained chapters in the fields of public debt and fiscal transfer schemes. After an introduction to the topic, chapter 2 shows that the institutional setting of fiscal policy making needs to be considered when assessing the sustainability of fiscal policy. Using data for the U.S. and German state governments, the results of fiscal sustainability tests depend on whether fiscal transfers are taken into account. If fiscal transfers are not included in the primary surplus, the test results do not indicate that the U.S. and German state governments pursued sustainable fiscal policies. Chapter 3 examines whether the municipalities' voting behavior in state elections in a German state influenced the distribution of discretionary grants from the state level to the municipalities. The results show that discretionary grants were awarded to municipalities with many core supporters of the incumbent state government. In Chapter 4, a test on explosive time-series behavior is applied to the Target balances of the German Bundesbank. Chapter 5 examines whether electoral motives in OECD countries influenced “creative accounting” by the governments as measured by stock-flow adjustments (the difference between budget deficits and the change in public debt). Governments can engage in creative accounting to hide borrowing and sugarcoat the budget balance. The results show that stock-flow adjustments increased before elections. In Germany, stock-flow adjustments chiefly occurred via the creation of off-budget special funds that governments can use to finance public activities outside the core budget. Chapter 6 describes special funds in Germany and elaborates upon the purposes for which special funds were established. It discusses the extent to which the new German debt brake limits the borrowing of special funds and explains how the debt brake can be circumvented by using special funds.

    Description: Einen Kern der Energiewende bildet der Ausbau Erneuerbarer Energien in Deutschland. Be-sonders im Strombereich greifen dabei EU-, Bundes-, Landes- und Kommunalpolitik sowie bürgerschaftliches Engagement eng ineinander, allerdings nicht immer reibungslos. Ziel dieser Studie ist es, bestimmte wissenschaftliche Entscheidungsgrundlagen politischen Handelns im Rahmen der Energiewende offenzulegen und zu reflektieren. Dazu werden zunächst energiebezogene Grundlagen und eine überblickshafte Bestandsaufnahme von Politik und Governance im Untersuchungsfeld vorgenommen. Diese dient aber zugleich der Reflexion normativer Theorien und politischer Gestaltungsempfehlungen. In einem zweiten Teil wird daher bezogen auf den Ausbau Erneuerbarer Energien eine Gegenüberstellung der neoklassisch-wohlfahrtsökonomischen Theorie des Föderalismus einerseits und des mit dem Namen Elinor und Vincent Ostrom verknüpften polyzentrischen oder auch Mehr-Ebenen-Governance Ansatzes vorgenommen. Politikempfehlungen in der Tradition Ostroms betonen die „gelebte Energiewende“, also einen Prozess, der im gesellschaftlichen Diskurs beständig angepasst werden muss. Dies steht in einem Spannungsfeld zum neoklassisch geprägten Denken in Zuständen und Ergebnissen und seiner Fokussierung auf Effizienzfragen (z.B. Ausbauziel mit bestimmten (Neben-)wirkungen). Gewisse Berührungspunkte bestehen aber insofern, wie von neoklassischer Seite auch heterogene Bürgerpräferenzen und die Innovationsvorteile des Labor- bzw. Bottom-up-Föderalismus berücksichtigt werden. Berührungspunkte bestehen auch in dem Sinne, dass von beiden bestimmte Schwachstellen und – i.d.R. empirische – Erklärungsdefizite in der derzeitigen Forschung anerkannt werden.

    Description: Das internationale Bankensystem stand in den vergangenen Jahren im Fokus des öffentlichen Interesses. Bei der Diskussion möglicher Optionen zur Verbesserung der Finanzsystemstabilität rückt zunehmend die Corporate Governance in Banken in den Fokus. Der vorliegende Forschungsbericht widmet sich zwei bislang wenig untersuchten Aspekten der Corporate Governance: der Expertise der Vorstandsteams und den Anreizstrukturen der Bankmitarbeiter. Beide Aspekte werden für den deutschen Bankenmarkt anhand von je zwei empirischen Untersuchungen diskutiert. Diese basieren auf zwei einzigartigen Datensätzen. Für die Analyse der Vorstandsteams wurde ein eigener biographischer Datensatz zusammengetragen. Für die Analyse der Mitarbeiteranreizstrukturen konnte ein vertraulicher Datensatz eines internationalen Personalberatungsunternehmens untersucht werden. Die Analyse verdeutlicht einen substanziellen Einfluss beider Aspekte. Banken mit kompetenteren Vorstandsteams wiesen signifikant bessere Profitabilitäts-, Risiko- und Effizienzmaße auf. Im Hinblick auf die Bonusniveaus der Bankmitarbeiter zeigt sich eine hohe Heterogenität, sowohl zwischen einzelnen Banken als auch zwischen Geschäftsbereichen. Betrachtet man die Kapitalmarktbereiche der Banken, zeigen sich außerdem exzessiv starke Anreize für den Zeitraum zwischen 2003 und 2007. Die Moderation der Bonusniveaus in den Krisenjahren scheint allerdings zu drastisch ausgefallen zu sein: die Anreize in den Jahren 2008-2011 waren scheinbar zu schwach, um den Shareholder-Value der Kapitalmarktaktivitäten zu maximieren.
