Workers Across Borders: Equity-Efficiency Trade-Offs for Mobility Policies

Mathilde Munoz (University of California, Berkeley)

Friday 31 January 2020 13:00 - 14:00

Many of our seminars and public events this year will continue as in person or as hybrid (online and in person) events. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @STICERD_LSE for updates.

Unless otherwise specified, in-person seminars are open to the public.

Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom if the event is hybrid.

About this event

This paper studies the effects of public policies that aim to enhance workers’ mobility across countries with different fiscal and social security regimes. Exploiting the unique setting provided by the largest European mobility scheme, which exempts mobile workers from fiscal and social security rules and contributions in their destination country, it studies the impacts of a coordinated mobility policy on workers, firms and fiscal outcomes in different countries and different sectors. The analysis highlights trade-offs faced by policy-makers in the design and implementation of mobility policies, and in incentives to coordinate or defect in these policies.

STICERD Work in Progress seminars are held on Fridays in term time at 13:00-14:00, ONLINE, unless specified otherwise.

Seminar organisers: Philip Barteska and Alix Bonargent
