The labeling effect of a child benefits system:  Evidence from Russia (1994-2015)

Impacts of child benefits and earned incomes on child wellbeing are identified for Russia. To predict earnings, a counter-factual commodity price model is constructed using information on local industrial composition and the evolution of world prices during 1994-2015 for six key commodity exports. The results show that there is no difference between child benefits and incomes on spending or health. Benefits do not crowd out private transfers to households containing children. Earned incomes and child health appear to be little related. Please find the article to be discussed at this link.

Louise Grogan joined the Dept. of Economics in 2002. She received a BSc (Econ) from the London School of Economics, an MA from the Université Catholique de Louvain and, a PhD from the Tinbergen Institute Amsterdam. Much of her research examines labour markets, institutions, and policy initiatives in former communist countries. She has published in journals including Journal of Development Economics, Journal of Human Capital, Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, Journal of Comparative Economics, World DevelopmentEconomics of Transition, Economic Development and Cultural Change, and the Journal of African Economies.

Breakfast refreshments will be served.
