Academic article in Sociology of Religion

  • This article adds to the literature on religious markets by conceptualizing and measuring intra-doctrinal competition between the Orthodox Church jurisdictions in Ukraine. These churches have exploited nationalistic narratives as substitutes for their dogmatic rewards to compete for congregations. This specific facet of church competition has positively affected people’s religious affiliations and church attendance in Ukraine. This argument is corroborated with a set of mixed and fixed models applied to novel regional data on religious communities merged with survey data from 1992 to 2012.

Working paper

  • In this working paper the authors investigate job market effects of COVID-19 on urban Ukrainian households. Their findings suggest that respondents employed in public administration, programming and IT, as well as highly qualified specialists, were more likely to secure their jobs during the quarantine. Females, better educated respondents, and those who lived in Kyiv were more likely to work remotely. Working in the public sector also made people more confident about their future employment perspectives. Although our findings are limited to urban households only, they provide important early evidence on the correlates of job market outcomes, expectations, and financial security, indicating potential deterioration of socio-economic inequalities.

Academic Article in The Review of Financial Studies

  • On the effects of quantitative easing on bank lending behaviour. Using a difference-in-differences identification strategy, this paper finds strong effects of the first and third round of quantitative easing (QE1 and QE3) on credit. Highly affected commercial banks increase lending by 2% to 3% relative to their counterparts. QE2 had no significant impact, consistent with its exclusive focus on Treasuries sparsely held by banks. Overall, banks respond heterogeneously, and the type of asset being targeted is central to QE.
