The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed working from home from a rarity to a widely adopted job amenity. We study workers’ willingness to pay for working from home, and how it may be affected by subjective and objective assessments of COVID-19-related risks. We conducted a discrete ...
2022-01-17 When populists deliver on their promises: the electoral effects of a large cash transfer program in Poland
authors:    /   /   / 
We estimate the effects of the introduction of a large cash transfer program on support for the ruling populist party in Poland. We exploit the variation at the municipal level in the annual cash transfer amount received per capita, and use a difference-in-differences research design ...
2022-01-12 The impact of robots on labour market transitions in Europe.
authors:    /   /   /   / 
We study the effects of robot exposure on worker flows in 16 European countries between 1998-2017. Overall, we find small negative effects on job separations and small positive effects on job findings. Labour costs are shown to be a major driver of cross-country differences: the ...

authors:    /   / 
We use data from 2019 EU LFS to study gender and parenthood gaps in flexibility in working time arrangements. We find that overall in Europe, there is no statistically significant gender difference in access to flexible work arrangements. However, women are less likely than men ...

authors:    / 
Unconditional cash transfers in the form of a universal basic income, a universal basic pension or a universal child benefit are increasingly being discussed in many countries. In this article, I investigate the labor supply effects of the introduction of a large unconditional cash benefit. ...
2021-06-17 The coal phase-out and the labour market transition pathways: the case of Poland
authors:    /   /   /   / 
We study the labour market transition pathways driven by the coal phase-out in Poland between 1990 and 2050. First, we apply the concept of branching points to describe the transformation of coal mining in the context of three labour market trends: structural changes, demographically driven ...
2020-12-10 Energy poverty, housing conditions, and self-assessed health: evidence from Poland
authors:    /   /   / 
Inefficient heating and insufficient access to energy services can turn a shelter into a health hazard. We study how energy poverty associated with having substandard housing and ineffective heating is related to the risk of developing poor health in an urban context. We conducted a ...

authors:    /   / 
We study the gender differences in aversion to COVID-19 exposure. We use a natural experiment of the 2020 US Open which was organised in the country with the highest number of COVID-19 cases and deaths and was the first major professional tennis tournament after the ...
2020-07-13 Consumer switching costs in a market with legal and pirate providers
authors:    / 
Despite a rich literature on switching costs in traditional markets, little has been said on the context of competition between pirate and legal providers. With a sizeable literature on the effects of piracy and its determinants, it is crucial to understand the specific barriers that ...
2020-07-02 Distributional effects of emission pricing in a carbon-intensive economy: the case of Poland
authors:    /   /   /   / 
In this paper, we assess the distributional impact of introducing a carbon tax in Poland. We apply a two- step simulation procedure. First, we evaluate the economy-wide effects with a dynamic general equilibrium model. Second, we use a microsimulation model based on household budget survey ...
2020-06-17 The global distribution of routine and non-routine work
authors:    /   /   / 
Studies of the effects of technology and globalization on employment and inequality commonly assume that occupations are identical around the world in the job tasks they require. To relax this assumption, we develop a regression-based methodology to predict the country-specific routine task intensity (RTI) of ...
2020-06-08 The gender dimension of occupational exposure to contagion in Europe
authors:    /   /   / 
We study the gender dimension of occupational exposure to contagious diseases spread by the respiratory or close-contact route. We show that in Europe, women are more exposed to contagion, as they are more likely than men to work in occupations that require contact with diseases, ...
