  • IEB Report 1/2021: COVID-19, Working from Home and the Future of Cities

    La COVID-19, el teletrabajo y el futuro de las ciudades

    Cities are a human invention that facilitate interaction between people. Urban life makes us more productive, because it enables us to learn things from each other and specialise in more specific tasks. More recently, cities have also become places where people want to live, so that they may enjoy a...

    2020/14: “Mom, Dad: I’m staying”. Initial labor market conditions, housing markets, and welfare

    Rodrigo Martínez-Mazza

    Young individuals are currently living with their parents more than at any other point in time, while also spending more on housing. In this paper, I first show how labor market entry conditions affect housing tenure and affordability in the long term, by using the unemployment rate at the time...

    2020/11: Congestion in highways when tolls and railroads matter: evidence from European cities

    Miquel-Àngel Garcia-López, Ilias Pasidis, Elisabet Viladecans-Marsal

    Using data from the 545 largest European cities, we study whether the expansion of their highway capacity provides a solution to the problem of traffic congestion. Our results confirm that in the long run, and in line with the ’fundamental law of highway congestion’, the expansion in cities of lane...

    2020/07: What do divided cities have in common? An international comparison of income segregation

    Paolo Veneri, Andre Comandon, Miquel-Àngel Garcia-López, Michiel N. Daams

    This paper provides a comparative assessment of income segregation within cities in 12 countries. We use spatial entropy indexes based on small-scale gridded income data and consistent definition of city boundaries to ensure international comparability of our segregation measures. Results show considerable variation in the levels of income segregation across...

    2020/05: Does media coverage affect governments’preparation for natural disasters?

    Pierre Magontier

    While natural hazards have never been so frequent in modern history, the political economy of disaster preparation remains largely understudied. To prepare for natural disasters, local governments can adopt mitigation measures (e.g., infrastructure elevation, retrofitting, shelter construction, etc.). However, in doing so, there is a trade-off between risk reduction and...

    2020/03: Commuting time and the gender gap in labor market participation

    Lídia Farré, Jordi Jofre-Monseny, Juan Torrecillas

    This paper investigates the contribution of increasing travel times to the persistent gender gap in labor market participation. In doing so, we estimate the labor supply elasticity of commuting time from a sample of men and women in US cities using microdata from the Census for the last decades. To...
