Erwartungen an Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft - eine innovative Langfristbefragung zu sozialen Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen

Es wird mehr und mehr klar, dass die subjektive Wahrnehmung und Bewertung objektiver Ungleichheiten als 'gerecht' oder 'ungerecht' eine Schlüsselrolle für ihre Reproduktion und Auswirkungen spielen. Das LINOS-Projekt unter Leitung von Stefan Liebig untersucht, wie und warum die strukturellen Bedingungen, in denen Individuen eingebunden sind, diese Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen...

Erwartungen an Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft - an Innovative Longitudinal Survey on Social Justice Attitudes

It is becoming increasingly clear that the subjective perception and evaluation of objective inequalities as 'just' or 'unjust'play a key role in their reproduction and consequences. The  LINOS project headed by Stefan Liebig examines how and why the structural conditions in which individuals are embedded influence these attitudes towards justice. To this end, the project group...

Prosociality and Risk Preferences in the Financial Sector

Using large-scale data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP), this paper finds that financial professionals have a lower prosociality and riskier behavior than a control group. I interpret these findings using the person-organization fit theory, and thus, the compatibility between the employee's personality and the prevailing culture in their organization....

Which preferences cause horizontral sex segregation in fields of studies? Some experimental evidence

Occupational gender segregation is one of the most persistent gender inequalities in the labor market and one contributing factor is the lack of women in STEM fields. Possible explanations for this pattern are the characteristics of the fields of study (creative-associative versus analytical-systematic thinking style required, the number of mathematics courses, competitive atmosphere), and...

Risks that matter

Globalisierung und Digitalisierung bieten vielfältige neue Möglichkeiten, jedoch sehen viele Menschen sie aber auch als Bedrohung ihrer sozialen und wirtschaftlichen Stellung.

Residential Segregation and Charitable Giving to Refugees

A large corpus of literature investigates how the presence of ethnic and economic out-group affects pro-social behavior. However, some long-standing theoretical controversies have not yet been resolved and empirical results are mixed. On the one hand, researchers associated with social identity and group-threat theories argue that out-group presence will drive down the pro-social behavior...

Performance, Competition and Corporate Social Responsibility in Organisations

Abstract: We examine experimentally the impact of corporate social responsibility techniques on individuals’ performance and willingness to compete. Our baseline treatment adopts the Niederle-Vesterlund (2007) paradigm whereby individuals perform a task under piece-rate and tournament incentives, followed by an opportunity to determine which of the two payment schemes they prefer. In our...

The Rich Are Different: Unravelling the Perceived and Self‐Reported Personality Profiles of High‐Net‐Worth Individuals

Beyond money and possessions, how are the rich different from the general population? Drawing on a unique sample of high‐net‐worth individuals from Germany (≥1 million Euro in financial assets; N = 130), nationally representative data (N = 22,981), and an additional online panel (N = 690), we provide the first direct investigation of the stereotypically perceived and self‐reported personality profiles ...

Temporary employment and the midlife nadir in human well-being

Temporary employees rank lower than permanent employees on various measures of mental and physical health, including well-being. Furthermore, much research has indicated an approximate U-shape pattern between age and well-being with a nadir in midlife. Temporary employment may well have different associations with well-being across the lifespan, likely harming people in midlife more than...
