46 p, 661.4 KB The effect of changes in the statutory minimum working age on educational, labor and health outcomes / Vall-Castello, Judit (Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Centre de Recerca en Economia i Salut) ; Jiménez-Martín, Sergi (Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Barcelona Graduate School of Economics) ; Del Rey Canteli, Elena (Universitat de Girona)
In this paper we explore the effects of a labor market reform that changed the statutory minimum working age in Spain in 1980. In particular, the reform raised the statutory minimum working age from 14 to 16 years old, while the minimum age for attaining compulsory education was kept at 14 until 1990. [...]

The taxation of high-income earners is of importance to every country and is the subject of a considerable amount of recent academic research. Such high-income earners contribute substantial amounts of tax and generate significant positive spillovers, but are also highly mobile: a 1% increase in the top marginal income tax rate increases outmigrations by around 1.

29 p, 530.6 KB Optimal government policies in models with heterogeneous agents / Bohácek, Radim ; Kejak, Michal
In this paper we develop a new approach for funding optimal government policies in economies with heterogeneous agents. Using the calculus of variations, we present three classes of equilibrium conditions from government's and individual agent's optimization problems: 1) the first order conditions: the government's Lagrange-Euler equation and the individual agent's Euler equation; 2) the stationarity condition on the distribution function; and, 3) the aggregate market clearing conditions.

40 p, 504.4 KB Step away from the zero lower bound : small open economies in a world of secular stagnation / Corsetti, Giancarlo ; Mavroeidi, Eleonora ; Thwaites, Gregory ; Wolf, Martin
We study how small open economies can escape from deation and unemployment in a situation where the world economy is permanently depressed. Building on the framework of Eggertsson et al. (2016), we show that the transition to full employment and at-target inflation requires real and nominal depreciation of the exchange rate. [...]

48 p, 764.5 KB Optimal fiscal transfers in a monetary union / Dmitriev, Mikhail ; Hoddenbagh, Jonathan
We derive the optimal fiscal transfer scheme for countries in a monetary union to off-set the welfare losses resulting from asymmetric shocks and nominal rigidities. Optimal transfers involve a trade-off between reducing national output gaps and the provision of consumption insurance across countries, where the weight of the former increases relative to the latter as consumption home bias rises.
