Mohamad Alhussein Saoud (FWW - Angewandte Wirtschaftsforschung) Immigration and Crimes against Foreigners: The 2015 Refugee Crisis in Germany

The inflow of nearly one million refugees to Germany in the 2015 refugee crisis fuelled widespread anti-foreign sentiments and hostility. Using county-level data on anti-refugee crimes (collected by NGOs, amongst others from newspapers), anti-refugee crimes related to refugee group quarters (from parliamentary documents), and rates of victimization of foreigners in violent crimes with German suspects (from special data extracts from police crime statistics), we study in first-difference regressions whether regional refugee inflows between 2014 and 2015 caused systematic increases in anti-foreign crime. For 2015, our results indicate only a small impact on the rate of victimization of foreigners in crimes with German suspects. However, for 2016 we find sizable and mildly humped-shaped impacts for all three measures of crime. For 2016, we also find expansions of decentralized refugee accommodation to attenuate regional growth in the anti-refugee crime rate.

Topic 1. State regulation of the development of small and medium enterprises in Ukraine and Kharkiv region: The methods of estimation of business activity in Ukraine and the city of Kharkov are considered in the report State regulation of the development of small and medium enterprises in Ukraine and Kharkiv region. It is offered to consider the potential of business development of the state and Kharkiv, systematize problems that hinder the effective development of business activity at different levels of business management and develop proposals for more efficient business development in Ukraine and Kharkiv. Topic 2. Analysis of the main macroeconomic indicators of Ukraine in the context of world integration: The daylight outlook of the international economic integration and the integration of the Ukrainian economy in the minds of the transfer of energy is highlighted. The main indicators of the national budget of Ukraine, such as financial, financial and social policies, are analyzed. The structure of the trade balance of Ukraine, the dynamics of expert and import operations are provided to Galuzev. Recommendations have been given for the release of the Ukrainian economy and the crisis in European economy. Topic 3. The formation of intra-firm technology transfer mechanism based on the principles of intrapreneurship: The dynamics analysis results of the total cost of innovation, the share of innovative enterprises and innovative products in the total volume of industrial products during 2000-2017 are presented. The technology transfer forms on a commercial and non-commercial basis are considered. The organizational mechanism of intra-firm transfer of intellectual development of machine-building enterprise on the basis of intrapreneurship is developed. The system of the effects of intra-firm technology transfer on the basis of intrapreneurship at the machine-building enterprise is formed. Alternative vectors for the development of technological transfer based on the use of the matrix “internal capabilities - environmental friendliness” are proposed.

Matias Ossandon Busch (IWH - Financial Markets) Income inequality and capital reallocation in the presence of financial frictions

Does income inequality affect banks'' credit-risk reallocation when facing financial distress? Using novel branch-level data on Colombian banks I find that facing a large liquidity shock, exposed banks shift more credit towards low-risk borrowers in municipalities with higher income inequality. For identification I compare branches'' reaction to a foreign funding shock within banks and across regions by simultaneously absorbing local demand. Collateral frictions play a key role: while the overall effect is stronger in regions with higher collateral constraints, credit backed by better collateral remains consistently shielded. Regional-level estimates suggest that this `inequality risk-taking channel'' can account for a significant share of consumption growth in crisis periods.
