In 2009, the government established ...

Sie werden in erster Linie an der beruflichen Qualifikation festgemacht. Darüber hinaus ...

Principals decide how this revenue is allocated between themselves and their agents. In this environment unfairness can arise if an agent's reward expectation is not met. Throughout the experiment we record agents' heart rate variability. ...

    Health Effects on Children's Willingness to Compete

    The formation of human capital is important for a society's welfare and economic success. Recent literature shows that child health can provide an important explanation for disparities in children's human capital development across different socio-economic groups. While this literature focuses on cognitive skills as determinants of human capital, it neglects non-cognitive skills. We analyze data from ...
