This study examines the association between sibship size and wealth in adulthood. The study draws on resource dilution theory and additionally discusses potentially wealth-enhancing consequences of having siblings. Data from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP, N = 3502 individuals) are used to estimate multilevel regression models adjusted for concurrent parental wealth and other important ...

Emotions, Risk Attitudes, and Patience

Previous work has shown that preferences are not always stable across time, but surprisingly little is known about the reasons for this instability. I examine whether variation in people’s emotions over time predicts changes in preferences. Using a large panel data set, I find that within-person changes in happiness, anger, and fear have substantial effects on risk attitudes and patience. Robustness ...

Participants (n = 2,854) lived in the same household and were part of a large, nationally representative panel study in Germany.

No Effect of Birth Order on Adult Risk Taking

Does birth order shape people’s propensity to take risks? Evidence is mixed. We used a three-pronged approach to investigate birth-order effects on risk taking. First, we examined the propensity to take risks as measured by a self-report questionnaire administered in the German Socio-Economic Panel, one of the largest and most comprehensive household surveys. Second, we drew on data from the Basel–Berlin ...

How Do Households Allocate Risk?

Individuals often have to decide to which degree of risk they want to expose others, or how much risk to accept if their choice has an externality on third parties. One typical application is a household. We run an experiment in the German Socio-Economic Panel with two members from 494 households. Participants have a good estimate of each other’s risk preferences, even if not explicitly informed. They ...

Der Sozialstaat muss jetzt stark sein

Die Lehre vergangener Krisen ist: Die Sicherung von Beschäftigung und ein starker Sozialstaat sind essenziell, damit die Einkommensungleichheit nicht wächst. Wird die Corona-Krise die Einkommensungleichheit in Deutschland erhöhen? Diese Sorge treibt zurzeit viele um. Besonders Menschen mit geringen Einkommen und prekären Jobs leiden unter den einschränkenden Maßnahmen ...

Retirement, Intergenerational Time Transfers, and Fertility

Retired parents might invest time into their adult children by providing childcare. Such intergenerational time transfers can have important implications for family decisions. This paper estimates the effects of parental retirement on adult children’s fertility. We use representative panel data from Germany to link observations on parents and adult children. We exploit eligibility ages for early retirement ...
