Gender unemployment gaps in the EU: blame the family
There are considerable differences in gender unemployment gaps across the EU. We use labor force survey data on 21 countries to perform a series of data decompositions and show that the cross-country variation in gender unemployment gaps is primarily driven by the differences in female labor force participation behavior after childbirth, namely, the family leave duration and the subsequent attachment of women to the labor force. Further, in countries where a high share of women permanently withdraw from the labor force after childbirth, the size of gender differences in unemployment strongly correlates with the Eurobaromet...

The legacies of slavery in and out of Africa
The slave trades out of Africa represent one of the most significant forced migration experiences in history. In this paper, I illustrate their long-term consequences on contemporaneous socio-economic outcomes, drawing from my own previous work on the topic and from an extensive review of the available literature. I first consider the influence of the slave trade on the “ sending ” countries in Africa, with attention to their economic, institutional, demographic, and social implications. Next, I evaluate the consequences of the slave trade on the “ receiving ” countries in the Americas. Here, I dist...

How Large are Earnings Penalties for Self-Employed and Informal Wage Workers?
This paper examines the earnings penalties and premiums associated with different types of employment in 73 countries. Workers are divided into four categories: non-professional own-account workers, employers and own-account professionals, informal wage employees, and formal wage employees. Approximately half of the workers in low income countries are non-professional own-account workers, and the majority of the rest are informal employees. Fewer than 10 percent are formal employees, and only 2 percent of workers in low income countries are employers or own-account professionals. As per capita gross domestic product increa...

Wage rigidities and business cycle fluctuations: a linked employer-employee analysis
This paper analyses wage dynamics in Italy in the last 25   years with a special focus on the recent recession. Despite the rather rigid Italian institutional setting, using linked employer-employee data   we find that wage rigidities, albeit always present, have been subdued during the recessionary years. Using complementary data, we verify that, although we only observe daily and not hourly wages, overtime hours are not the main mechanism behind this enhanced wage flexibility. We document the presence of a trade-off between wage and employment adjustments: firms historically displaying higher levels of wage rig...

An adaptive random compressive partial sampling method with TV recovery
Different from standard sampling strategy in compressive sensing (CS), we present a compressive partial sampling framework called adaptive-random sampling and recovery (ASR) for image. It could faithfully recover images by hybridizing random samples with edge-extracted pixels with much lower sampling rate. The new framework preserves edge pixels containing essential information of images, and meanwhile employs the edge-preserving total variation (TV) regularizer. Assisted with the edges, three steps are adopted to recover the high-quality image. First, we extract the edges of a coarse image recovered with completely random...

Wage inequality, skill inequality, and employment: evidence and policy lessons from PIAAC
This paper investigates international differences in wage inequality and skills and whether a compressed wage distribution is associated with high unemployment across core OECD countries. Wage dispersion and wage structure are widely debated among policymakers; compressed wage structure is often perceived as an important cause of high unemployment. Firstly, this paper examines differences in wage dispersion across OECD countries and their link to skill dispersion. Some countries that have more compressed (dispersed) wage structures simultaneously have more compressed (dispersed) skill structures as well, and skill differen...

Stability of delayed impulsive stochastic differential equations driven by a fractional Brown motion with time-varying delay
We study the stability problem of mild solutions of impulsive stochastic differential equations driven by a fractional Brown motion with finite time-varying delay. The Hurst parameter H of the fractional Brown motion belongs to ( 1 2 , 1 ) . In terms of fractional power of operators and semigroup theory, we obtain sufficient conditions that guarantee the stability of the mild solution of such a equation in two cases: the impulse depends on current states of the system and the impulse depends not only on current states but also on historical states of the ...

What is frugal innovation? Three defining criteria
Recently, the innovation management literature has witnessed a rising interest in the so-called frugal innovation. The term was initially discussed in the context of emerging markets, giving non-affluent customers opportunities to consume affordable products and services suited to their needs. However, the meaning of frugal innovation is fuzzy. Further, the increasing appearance of frugal innovation in developed markets challenges earlier definitions that often characterised frugal innovation particularly in the context of emerging markets. So far, it has not been clear what differentiates frugal innovation from other inno...

However, whole-exome sequencing performed from patient ’ s blood revealed 12 potentially disease-causative heterozygous variants, amongst which several have been associated with neurological disorders in vitro and in vivo – in particular the axon degeneration-related NMNAT2 gene.
