Manacorda) Abstract:Can digital information and communication technology (ICT) foster mass political mobilization? We use a novel geo-referenced dataset for the entire African continent between 1998 and 2012 on the coverage of mobile phone signal together with geo-referenced data from multiple sources on the occurrence of protests and on individual participation in protests to bring this argument to empirical scrutiny. We find that mobile phones are instrumental to mass mobilization but this only happens during economic downturns, when reasons for grievance emerge and the cost of participation falls. The results are in line with insights from a network model with imperfect information and strategic complementarities in protest occurrence. Mobile phones make individuals more responsive to both changes in economic conditions - a mechanism that we ascribe to enhanced information - and to their neighbors’ participation - a mechanism that we ascribe to enhanced coordination. Empirically both effects are at play, highlighting the channels through which digital ICT can alleviate the collective action problem.

Having a son to fulfill these roles is very important to couples, and parents tend to favor their eldest son over their other children. This talk will discuss how eldest-son preference strongly shapes couples’ fertility decisions and their investments in their children in India, with important implications for child health.

December 5, 201812:00 PM - 1:15 PMDevelopment Economics Lunch SeminarLaia Navarro-Sola (Northwestern University): "Secondary school expansion through televised lessons: The labor market returns of the Mexican telesecundaria" Abstract:This study investigates the long-run effects of the telesecundaria, a Mexican junior secondary school program that provides all lessons through television broadcastings in a classroom setting, and that served 19.2% of all junior secondary students in 2014. I exploit geographical and timing variation in telesecundaria's introduction to estimate the program effects using an instrumented differences-in-differences (IV-DiD) empirical approach. The main results indicate that a telesecundaria construction raises by 0.2-0.5 the average years of education and significantly increases the labor market participation of cohorts with the opportunity to attend them. I estimate a 10-13.5% hourly wage return from an additional year of education for the subgroup affected by the telesecundaria construction. In work in progress, I investigate the returns' sensitivity to the educational opportunities available: I first examine how they vary depending on the presence of brick-and-mortar secondary schools, outlining a method to separately identify the effects on individuals that would have otherwise worked versus those who would have attended a brick-and-mortar school. I then provide suggestive evidence that the estimated returns could be a combination of the returns of attending a telesecundaria (direct effect) and the returns of attending education levels available after completing telesecundaria (continuation effect), and discuss potential ways to separate both effects.

We examine the context of the ongoing Russian military intervention in Ukraine. In a difference-in-differences framework, we leverage a newly compiled firm-level panel with the universe of Ukrainian trade transactions from 2013 through 2016 and exploit substantial spatial variation in the ethnolinguistic composition of Ukrainian counties. The estimates suggest that Ukrainian firms from counties with fewer ethnic Russians experienced a deeper decline in trade with Russia. We argue that this result stems from increased inter-ethnic tensions and a differential rise in negative attitudes and beliefs about Russia. Evidence indicates that possible mechanisms include consumer boycotts of Russian products, reputational concerns of Ukrainian firms, and a breakdown of trust in contract enforcement. In contrast, we find no evidence for individual-level animosity between firms’ key decision makers or discrimination at the border. We also rule out that the differential decline in trade only arises from economic spillovers, such as refugee flows and destruction of supply chains with conflict areas.

A simple differences-in-differences analysis finds that the introduction of radio broadcasts to a county is strongly correlated with a rise in voter turnout and electoral competition among political parties, possibly due to government regulation which mandated that broadcasts serve the public interest. The instrumental variables strategy exploits the fact that geographical characteristics like elevation and average groundwave conductivity affect an area's value as a site for a radio station.

November 15, 20183:00 PM - 4:30 PMSeminar in Applied MicroeconomicsShing-Yi Wang (University of Pennsylvania): "The Labor Market Consequences of Having a Boy" Abstract:Combining eight years of panel data with an event study approach, we show that rural Chinese womens' labor supply falls for one year following the birth of a daughter before returning to their pre-birth levels. The negative impact of the birth of a son is much larger in magnitude and persists for four years. We find that households reduce their consumption of cigarettes. Furthermore, there is an increase the probability of being in school and time spent on leisure for mothers following the birth of boys but not daughters. Together, these results are consistent with two mechanisms. First, mothers are rewarded for giving birth to boys, leading them to consume more leisure and work less. Second, households' returns to investment are higher for boys than girls, leading mothers to invest more effort in them.

November 14, 201812:00 PM - 1:15 PMDevelopment Economics Lunch SeminarAshley Wong & Francesca Truffa (Northwestern University) "Effect of Beliefs and Gender Roles on Girls’ Math Education" Abstract:In Ghana, a large gender gap in participation exists across fields of study in senior secondary school; in home economics, 89.6% of students are girls while in general science, only 34% are girls (Ministry of Education, 2013). Recent research shows that parents in developing countries are often misinformed about children's performance and educational returns. At the same time, there can exist gender norms that associate to girls lower innate math ability and future roles that may have lower returns to math education.The goal of this research is to investigate how information frictions and societal beliefs can lead to gender differences in investments and aspirations in math-related fields. We conduct an RCT in Ghana to investigate whether providing information can change beliefs about girls’ innate math ability and their aspirations in math education.

Political repression is a distinguishing characteristic of autocratic regimes. Between 1661--1788, individuals in imperial China were persecuted if they were suspected of holding subversive attitudes towards the state. A difference-in-differences approach suggests that in an average prefecture, exposure to political repression led to a decline of 38% in local charities---a key proxy of social capital. In line with the historical panel results, individuals have lower levels of generalized trust today in affected prefectures. Taking advantage of institutional variation in 20th century China, and using two instrumental variables, we provide further evidence that political repression permanently reduced social capital. Moreover, individuals in prefectures with a legacy of literary inquisitions are more politically apathetic. More suggestively, there appears to be a self-reinforcing cycle in which autocratic rule becomes entrenched through causing a permanent decline in social capital.
