  • Edwin Leuven - Splitting tournaments
    sufficiently small multiple equilibria can arise Depending on how the prize money is split over the tournaments these may include for example a perfect sorting equilibrium in which high ability agents compete in the high prize tournament while low ability agents compete for the low prize However there are also equilibria in which agents follow a mixed strategy and there can be reverse sorting i e low ability agents are

  • Edwin Leuven - Sick of work? The effect of work time reduction on the sickness absenteeism of teachers
    This paper investigates how a policy that is aimed to increase the labor force attachment of older teachers affects their labor supply and absenteeism The policy allows teachers older than 52 to reduce their working hours by 10 at the cost of a 3 5 salary reduction When teachers turn 56 they can reduce their work load by another 10 at the same cost This measure therefore introduces a change

  • Edwin Leuven - Papers & Abstracts
    Yet relatively little is known about the extent to which education is causally linked to cancer incidence and mortality This paper exploits a large social experiment where an education reform expanded compulsory schooling during the 1960s in Norway The reform led to a discontinuous increase in educational attainment which we exploit to estimate the effect of the reform on various cancer outcomes Our main finding is that education has little if any impact on cancer risk This holds for all cancer sites together as well as the most common cancer sites in isolation with two exceptions The compulsory school reform lowered the risk of lung cancer for men but increased the risk of colorectal cancer for women Download this paper The responsiveness of training participation to tax deductibility with Hessel Oosterbeek Abstract To stimulate investment in training by individuals the Dutch tax system allows a deduction of out of pocket training expenditures from taxable income This paper investigates to what extent the resulting cost reduction encourages training investments Two different identification strategies are used The first strategy uses the progressive structure of the income tax scheme and compares groups with taxable income just above or just below kinks The second strategy takes advantage of the 2001 tax reform which implied substantial changes in marginal tax rates These strategies exploit different sources of exogenous variation and are based on different identifying assumptions Nevertheless the results point in the same direction tax incentives increase training participation Download this paper Splitting tournaments with Hessel Oosterbeek and Bas van der Klaauw Abstract In this paper we investigate how heterogeneous agents choose among tournaments with different prizes We show that if the number of agents is sufficiently small multiple equilibria can arise Depending on how the prize money is split over the tournaments these may
