30 Avril 2018

Luca Tiberti, professeur au Département d’économique, et Nicholas-James Clavet, ancien étudiant au Département d’économique, publieront dans la revue Economics of Transition un article intitulé : "Reduction of child poverty in Serbia: benefit or employment strategy?"

Cet article a été écrit avec une équipe de chercheurs du PEP de l’University of Belgrade.

Ci-dessous un résumé de l’article :

Based on the Serbian Survey of Income and Living Conditions (SILC) and tax-benefits and structural micro-simulation models, we evaluate the labour supply and distributive effects of several reform strategies concerning two major social transfers in Serbia: child allowance and social monetary assistance. Our results show that, in a context of a low labour participation rate, and high unemployment and informality rates, a benefit strategy is by far the more cost-effective option for reducing child poverty than an employment strategy that aims to raise the work incentives for parents. Both proposed reforms are found to be progressive.
