Long shadow of the Berlin Wall

Arnaud Chevalier and Olivier Marie ()

CentrePiece - The Magazine for Economic Performance from Centre for Economic Performance, LSE

Abstract: Do people born at different points of the economic cycle have different outcomes - and if so, why? Arnaud Chevalier and Olivier Marie examine the educational attainment and criminal activity of children born in East Germany in the few years after the fall of the Berlin Wall - a time when uncertainty about the future was extremely high.
