GERARD François (Columbia University ) : Unemployment Insurance Schemes and Consumption: Evidence from Brazil
Co-authors: NARITOMI Joana
Résumé

Different unemployment insurance schemes exist to support displaced formal workers across countries, and their disbursement policies differ substantially. State-contingent transfers, such unemployment insurance (UI) programs, are schemes that transfer benefits periodically to displaced workers who remain non-employed. In contrast, some schemes transfer a benefit amount in a lump-sum fashion at layoff, such as severance pay programs (SPP) and most unemployment insurance savings accounts (UISA) programs. Although most countries provide workers with some combination of periodic benefits and lump-sum schemes, little is known about how the different disbursement designs affect the insurance value they provide to displaced workers. Moreover, the relative importance of these schemes vary systematically across the development path: lump-sum transfers are more common than UI in developing countries, where the state has limited capacity to monitor workers and a large share of the workforce is informal. This paper contributes to fill this gap using evidence from Sao Paulo, Brazil. We analyse high frequency expenditure data matched to a longitudinal microdata of formal employment for over 400,000 workers. Using multiple sources of individual income variation from unemployment insurance schemes available to workers in Brazil, we document several empirical findings on how different unemployment insurance schemes affect consumption smoothing. Across our empirical analysis we find that consumption is highly sensitive to the timing of disbursement of benefits. First, we find a substantial increase in consumption at layoff, when a lump-sum becomes available, followed by a long-term loss in consumption if workers remain non-formally employed. This increase is larger for workers with higher lump-sum despite similar long-term losses. Second, we find that consumption drops after UI exhaustion, and we zoom in at daily data to find that the higher consumption levels workers experience before UI exhaustion is concentrated around the UI payday. These empirical patterns shed light on the relevance of disbursement policies for social insurance, and provide novel evidence on the insurance value of unemployment benefits in a developing country context.

PONTHIÈRE Grégory (University Paris East (ERUDITE), Paris School of Economics and Institut universitaire de France) : The Domestic Welfare Loss of Syrian Civil War: An Equivalent Income Approach
Résumé

This paper uses an equivalent income approach to quantify the domes- tic welfare loss due to the Syrian Civil War. Focusing on the (income, life expectancy) space, we show that the equivalent income has fallen by about 60 % in comparison to the pre-conáict level. We also Önd that the di§er- ential between the equivalent income and the standard income for 2016 lies between $75 and $144. Although this low willingness to pay for com- ing back to pre-conáict survival conditions can be explained by extreme poverty due to the War, the small gap between standard and equivalent incomes tends to question the extra value brought by the latter for the measurement of standards of living in situations of severe poverty. We examine some solutions to that puzzle, including a more general speciÖ- cation of the utility function, the shift from an ex ante approach (valuing changes in life expectancy) to an ex post approach (valuing changes in dis- tributions of realized longevities), as well as considering population ethical aspects. None of those solutions is fully successful in solving the puzzle.

BEST Michael (Columbia University) : Individuals and Organizations as Sources of State Effectiveness, and Consequences for Policy Design
Résumé

How much of the variation in state effectiveness is due to the individuals and organizations responsible for implementing policy? We investigate this question and its implications for policy design in the context of public procurement, using a text-based product classification method to measure bureaucratic output. We show that effective procurers lower bid preparation/submission costs, and that 60% of within-product purchase-price variation across 16 million purchases in Russia in 2011-2015 is due to the bureaucrats and organizations administering procurement processes. This has dramatic policy consequences. To illustrate these, we study a ubiquitous procurement policy: bid preferences for favored firms (here domestic manufacturers). The policy decreases overall entry and increases prices when procurers are effective, but has the opposite impact with ineffective procurers, as predicted by a simple endogenous-entry model of procurement. Our results imply that the state’s often overlooked bureaucratic tier is critical for effectiveness and the make-up of optimal policies.
