This paper formulates a model to explain how parental care responsibilities and family structure interact in affecting children's mobility characteristics. Our main result is that the mobility of young adults crucially depends on the presence of a sibling. Siblings compete in location and employment decisions to direct parental care decisions towards their preferred outcome. Only children are not exposed to this kind of competition. This causes an equilibrium in which siblings exhibit higher mobility than only children, and also have better labour market outcomes. Using data from the German Socio-Economic Panel, we find ...

The Russians are Stressed : Global Brief
Little known fact: The transition to a market economy and democracy in the 1990s in the former Soviet Union and in other Eastern European countries caused a dramatic increase in mortality, shortened life expectancy and, in many cases, led to outright depopulation. Indeed, the steep upsurge in mortality and the decline in life expectancy in Russia were the biggest ever recorded anywhere in peacetime; that is, in the absence of catastrophes like wars, plague or famine. Between 1987 and 1994, Russia’s mortality rate increased by 60 percent, from one percent to 1.6 percent, whereas life expectancy went down from 70 to 64 years.

Where now for the crisis-hit European Left?
Political labels such as left and right, we told ourselves when the Cold War ended two decades ago, are now meaningless. Yet we still use them, pondering endlessly which of the Eds, Miliband or Balls, is the most “left-wing” of the candidates to lead Labour. This may be a generational problem — too many of the ponderers grew up under Harold Wilson — or it may be for want of anything better. But the economic crisis should give us a further explanation: it is that until the Left (as it were) works out what it actually stands for, no new label will be forthcoming or, more important, convincing.

A freeze of recruitment in Whitehall could contribute to a 15% cut in public sector staff. Photograph: Cate Gillon/Getty Images The government's planned spending squeeze will throw 750,000 public sector workers on to the dole queue and push unemployment close to 3 million for the first time since the early 1990s, a respected thinktank warns today.
