    Economic History Workshop - Laura Panza

    1:00pm - 2:00pm, R1.04 (Ramphal building)

    Title of paper: Atlantic Trade and the Decline of Conflict in Europe: Evidence from 250 Years of Data (with Reshad Ahsan and Yong Song)

    Abstract. We use over 250 years of conflict and trade integration data to examine whether the rise of Atlantic trade had a pacifying effect in Europe. The decline in intra-European conflict from the late Middle Ages to World War One has been widely acknowledged. Explanations for this decline range from the pacifying effect of the Congress of Vienna, technologies developed during the Industrial Revolution, and the positive effects of the Enlightenment. We examine another important, but so far unexplored, channel that plausibly affected intra-European conflict: access to Atlantic trade. To identify our results, we rely on exogenous variation in wind patterns and cyclone activity over the Atlantic to instrument trade integration with the New World. We find that if two European countries in our sample were to jointly increase their integration with the New World by one standard deviation, then their probability of being at war with each other would decrease by 12.33 percent from the baseline. This confirms that greater integration between Europe and the New World did indeed have a pacifying effect on intra-European conflict.

  • Wed05Jun

    CAGE-AMES Workshop - Rigissa Megalokonomou

    1:00pm - 2:00pm, S2.77 Cowling Room

    Title of paper "Human Capital Depreciation: Evidence from Teachers Waitlists" with Dinerstein (Chicago) and Yannelis (Chicago Booth)

     Abstract: Human, like physical capital, can depreciate over time if skills are unused. Measuring human capital depreciation is difficult, both because productivity is inherently difficult to measure, and because less productive workers are more likely to spend time out of the labor force. We overcome both concerns by using new data on teachers and their assignments. In Greece, all education graduates are guaranteed public sector positions; however positions are typically not immediately available for new graduates. Teachers are quasi-randomly assigned to waitlists by degree date, generating variation in time spent out of the labor forces. We find significant human capital depreciation, as a one year increase in the average time spent out of the labor force leads to a 0.11 standard deviation decline in students’ average test scores in standardised high-stake exams. Effects are stronger for the first few years out of the labor force and for experienced teachers.

    Johan will present his paper: Legacies of Loss: The intergenerational outcomes of slaveholder compensation in the British Cape Colony (with Igor Martins and Jeanne Cilliers)

    Abstract. Can wealth shocks have intergenerational health consequences? We use the partial compensation slaveholders received after the 1834 slave emancipation in the British Cape Colony to measure the intergenerational effects of a wealth loss on longevity. Because the share of partial compensation received was uncorrelated to wealth, we can interpret the results as having a causal influence. We find that a greater loss of slave wealth shortened the lifespans of the generation of slaveholders that experienced the shock and those of their children, but not those of their grandchildren. We speculate on the mechanisms for this intergenerational persistence.
