Colloque : "Do labour market inequalities erode support for democracy? Experiences and perspectives from France, Germany and Japan"

Colloque organisé conjointement par le German Institute for Japanese Studies (DIJ), la Fondation France-Japon de l'EHESS et le Japanisch-Deutsches Zentrum Berlin (JDZB).
Ce colloque cherche à étudier les liens entre les inégalités du marché du travail et la perte de confiance en la démocratie en réunissant des chercheurs et des experts français, allemand et japonais. Ce colloque a deux objectifs. Tout d'abord les participants chercheront à analyser pour chacun des pays, l'impact qu'ont les inégalités du marché du travail sur la politique, le taux de participation et le soutien à la démocratie. Dans un second temps, les participants étudieront comment différentes politiques peuvent contribuer à réduire les écarts socio-économiques et à mettre en place des stratégies pour contrer la marginalisation politique et la méfiance vis à vis de la démocratie de façon générale.

  • Date 1 : 6 octobre 2017, 9h45 - 18h30
  • Date 2 : 7 octobre 2017, 9h30 - 12h45
  • Lieu: EHESS (105 boulevard Raspail 75006 Paris), Salle 13

Workshop : "The Role of the Exchange Rate for the Real Economy – Experiences from Japan and the Eurozone"

Workshop organisé par le CEAFJP dans le cadre de la Chaire Banque de France 2017.
The aim of the workshop is to analyse the role of the exchange rate for economies, drawing mainly on the experiences of Japan and the European economies. Questions that are to be addressed include: To what extent do exchange rate levels and exchange rate volatility affect trade? Have long-term changes in the exchange rate impacted on economic structures in Japan and Europe? What is the importance of exchange rate pass-through? How successful are central bank interventions in the foreign exchange market aimed at managing the exchange rate?

  • Intervenants : Ulrich Volz (SOAS/EHESS), Ansgar Belke (University of Duisburg-Essen), Laurent Ferrara (Banque de France), Toshiyuki MATSUURA (Keio University/EHESS)

RIETI International Seminar : "Incidence of Social Security Contributions: Evidence from France"

Abstract: In this paper, we study the earnings responses to three large increases in employer social security contributions (SSCs) in France over the period 1976-2010. Using a difference-in-differences (DiD) estimation strategy, we find systematic evidence of increased labour cost, i.e., the absence of full tax shifting to workers, at the individual level, within five to six years after reforms that increased SSCs with little or no tax-benefit linkage. Our DiD estimates point to limited shifting of SSCs to employees in the form of lower wages, with an estimated employer share of the tax burden between 55 percent and 88 percent. In contrast, we find evidence of full shifting of increase s in employer SSCs in the case of strong and salient tax-benefit linkage. We interpret these results as providing compelling evidence that the tax-benefit linkage matters for incidence, and we discuss possible explanations for the non-standard result of long-term nominal incidence of SSCs at the individual level.

Conference: "Notional defined contributions : a new model for European pension systems?"

Abstract: In the 1990s, Sweden reformed its public pension systems according to the model of Notional defined contributions (NDCs), a number of europeans countries have followed this path. Today the new French government is contemplating reforming its pension system into the NDC model. Is that the emergence of a new European model for pension design ?
