    Description

    Economic globalization has the forms of an increase in the market share of multi-nationally operating firms as well as an increase in international trade, in international financial capital flows, and in international labor migration. Critics argue that some of these patterns affect the sustainability of economic and human development in an undesired fashion. This seminar examines questions like: Do import competition and international outsourcing adversely affect labor market outcomes and health in advanced economies? Does an increase in market shares of multinational firms lead to declining shares of the economy’s income for workers? Does immigration into labor markets or refugee inflows lead to more crime and/or lower income of natives? Which policies improve employment and job stability of immigrants? How much wealth lies in tax havens and how does tax evasion bias wealth inequality statistics and reduce national tax revenues? How is climate change related to economic activity and to what extent should activities that contribute to climate change be discouraged?

    Training objectives

    The goal of the seminar is to obtain a deeper understanding of the consequences of globalization for sustainable development, mostly by employing econometric methods that are designed to identify causal effects. (Knowledge of econometric methods at the level of third-year bachelor studies or the master level is therefore required to succeed in this course.)
