Plenary Session
March 21, 2016 10:30 to 12:00
 
Plenary Session: Minimum Wages
 
Minimum wages have never been so popular. More than 100 countries worldwide now have a statutory minimum wage and politicians across the UK, the US and other OECD countries are implementing substantial increases in minimum wage levels. On 1 April, the UK Chancellor’s 'National Living Wage’ will come into force and is set to increase to 60% of median earnings by 2020. Yet two decades ago, the common view was that minimum wages do more harm than good. In this session, Princeton economist and former US presidential adviser Alan Krueger will take us through the past 30 years of minimum wage research to understand how academic and political views have shifted. We will hear responses from Arindrajit Dube, Stephen Machin and Richard Blundell on recent increases in the US and the UK and the issue of how minimum wages interact with in-work benefits.

Plenary Session: Brexit?
 
On 23 June, the British public will vote on whether the UK should remain a member of the European Union. This session brings together expert economists from the UK, Europe and the US to debate the potential costs and benefits of Britain leaving the EU - so-called ‘Brexit'. The panellists will discuss the implications for the macroeconomy, monetary and fiscal policy, labour markets, migration and trade flows under a range of potential scenarios both inside and outside the EU.

Session 27: Understanding Firm Heterogeneity
March 21, 2016 16:45 to 18:15
Fulton B
 
As emphasized by a recent literature, firm-level heterogeneity is of primary importance for understanding many macroeconomic outcomes, such as aggregate productivity, export volumes, the gains from trade and wage inequality. Yet, despite the growing attention that firm-level productivity differences have attracted, we still have a limited understanding of the theoretical and empirical underpinnings of this heterogeneity. The session brings together some of the most recent works in the theory of international trade making progress on modelling and measuring firm heterogeneity.

Session 28: Bank of England Special Session: The redistributive effects of monetary policy
March 21, 2016 16:45 to 18:15
Fulton A
 
Since the crisis, there has been an increasing focus on how differences across agents can impact the effectiveness of monetary policy, and how monetary policy might itself have redistributive effects. This session would bring together economists from academia and policy institutions to discuss recent insights in this area from both a theoretical and empirical angle. The session would cover a tractable quantitative model of the redistribution channel of monetary policy, a study of how marginal propensities to consume differ across households and across positive and negative income shocks, and a paper on the role of heterogeneity in housing debt positions for the transmission of monetary policy.

Session 30: Discrete Choice Modeling: Applications to Healthcare
March 21, 2016 16:45 to 18:15
Fulton 104
 
Where patients receive hospital treatment and the treatment they receive are major drivers of the costs and benefits of the healthcare sector. Both are the outcome of decisions made by both doctors and patients. The ways in which these choices are made are often difficult to observe, but have important implications for outcomes and patient health. Patient choice of hospital has been advocated, and used, as a mechanism to increase competition between hospitals in both market-based and state-owned health systems, with the aim of increasing quality and/or productivity in the sector. The choices made by doctors have direct impacts on the costs of care and patient health outcomes. This session will feature four papers that use recent methods in discrete choice modeling to examine patient and/or physician choices and the economic impact of these choices. The settings are diverse and represent very different health systems in the US, England and Nigeria.

Session 31: The Minimum Wage, a “Fiscal Studies” Special Session
March 21, 2016 16:45 to 18:15
Jubilee 144
 
This session will feature four papers on how minimum wages impacts on wages, employment, income, firm dynamics, and other outcomes. The minimum wage has been receiving new academic interest recently, for two reasons. First, minimum wages are rising in the UK, as well as many other countries. In the UK, the national minimum wage is £6.50 per hour for those aged 21 and older and ranges between £2.73 and £5.13 for those under 21. However, for a family of four supported by a single full- time worker, those hourly rates are not sufficient to escape poverty. Governments have various schemes to help such families out of poverty but, in the last year or so, politicians have been making proposals to relieve poverty by higher statutory minimum wages rather than through government income top-ups. This has been the case in the UK, Germany and also in high cost- of-living cities like Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Seattle. For example, in the UK the increase in the minimum wage for people aged 25+ will be from the current £6.50 per hour to £9 per hour by 2020. Second, in the last 20 years the minimum wage literature has seen improvement in both methods and data. The papers in this session use new data and methods to produce new insights on the effects of the minimum wage.

Session 86: Public service delivery in developing countries
March 22, 2016 17:15 to 18:45

Low quality public services is an endemic problem in developing countries: rampant absenteeism rates amongst doctors and teachers, as well as significant know-do gaps are well documented across poor countries. Information asymmetries accentuate the problems caused by poor accountability and weak law enforcement. Within this context, insights from the theory of incentives and behavioral economics have been leveraged within field experiments to shed light on possible solutions. This session gathers together some of the most prominent national and international scholars who are studying the issue.

Session 142: Earnings, Consumption and Wealth
March 23, 2016 15:15 to 16:45
Fulton A
 
The first two papers are related to the recent evidence from large social security panel datasets that life cycle earnings display substantial non-linear persistence (persistence depends on both age and past earnings realization) and conditional skewness. The first paper estimates such a non-linear earnings process non-parametrically on the PSID and shows how the non-linearity is important to account for the heterogeneity in consumption responses. The second paper uses an alternative non-parametric method to estimate a non-linear, life-cycle earnings process to fit Social Security Administration earnings data for the US and shows how introducing such a process in a standard life-cycle model significantly improves its ability to match the wealth distribution for the US. The third paper documents the evolution of the joint distribution of earnings, income and wealth in the US over the past 25 years with particular emphasis on the degree of income and wealth concentration at the top and on the income sources and asset classes that most contribute to it. Finally, the last paper studies life cycle savings in the UK, in the presence of public and private pensions. It assesses the optimal split between contributory and means-tested retirement benefits under different systems of public subsidization of private pensions. The model implies that under the current UK pension arrangements means-tested pension benefits are too low and the tax treatment of private pensions too favourable. Hence, the session as a whole is about earnings dynamics and its implications for savings, and thus wealth and consumption inequality, as well as the impact of government programs on these outcomes.
