Based on real-time online-survey data comprising more than 20,000 observations, we analyze the impact of this program on the subjective survival probability.

    Emergency Aid for Self-Employed in the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Flash in the Pan?

    Mobile Money, Financial Inclusion, and Unmet Opportunities: Evidence from Uganda

    Mobile money is an important instrument to improve the degree of financial inclusion, especially in developing countries. However, having a mobile money account does not imply that this account is actually used. In our sample, 86% of microentrepreneurs own a mobile money account, but only 49% actively use it – the resulting gap indicates unmet opportunities. We estimate that mobile money reaches up ...

    Trust We Lost: The Impact of the Treuhand Experience on Political Alienation in East Germany

    Do politically administered mass layoffs undermine trust and political interest? During the German reunification, formerly state-owned socialist firms in East Germany were privatized by the Treuhand, which came at the cost of massive job losses and public protest.

    The Effect of Personalized Feedback on Small Enterprises’ Finances in Uganda

    This randomized controlled trial examines the effect of a new finance training style during which participants are given personalized feedback on their financial business outcomes in addition to a rule-of-thumb training approach. We compare this with the effects of a rule-of-thumb training by itself and a control group. Targeting about 500 small entrepreneurs in Uganda, we find that the personalized ...
