Frauen in Spitzengremien großer Unternehmen weiterhin massiv unterrepräsentiert

Vorstände und Aufsichtsräte großer Unternehmen in Deutschland werden nach wie vor von Männern dominiert - mit erdrückender Mehrheit. Das zeigt die aktuelle Studie des DIW Berlin.

Investments: Women Are More Cautious than Men because They Have Less Financial Resources at Their Disposal

Experts on investments and financial products assume that women are less amenable to risks and therefore put their money into secure investment products. A current study conducted by the DIW Berlin (German Institute for Economic Research) challenges this view. The study demonstrates that men and women are equally likely to take a chance on risky investments - assuming that they have the same financial ...

The Impact of International Migration and Remittances on the Labor-Supply Behavior of Those Left behind: Evidence from Egypt

We analyze in this paper the impact of male-dominated migration and remittance income on the participation and hours worked decisions of adults left behind, including the hours spent by women in subsistence and domestic work. We differentiate between a 'pure' migration ("M") effect and the joint effect of migration and remittance income ("MR") and evaluate these effects for men and women separately. ...

Geldanlage: Frauen sind vorsichtiger als Männer - weil sie weniger Vermögen haben

Unter Experten für Geldanlagen und Finanzprodukte geht man davon aus, dass Frauen risikoscheu sind und in sichere Anlageprodukte investieren. Eine aktuelle Studie des DIW Berlin stellt dies in Frage.

Zu bezweifeln ist demnach das gängige ...
