    Happiness, Habits and High Rank: Comparisons in Economic and Social Life

    The role of money in producing sustained subjective well-being seems to be seriously compromised by social comparisons and habituation. But does that necessarily mean that we would be better off doing something else instead? This paper suggests that the phenomena of comparison and habituation are actually found in a considerable variety of economic and social activities, rendering conclusions regarding ...

    Explaining Age and Gender Differences in Employment Rates: A Labor Supply Side Perspective

    This paper takes a labor supply perspective (neoclassical labor supply, job search) to explain the lower employment rates of older workers and women. The basic rationale is that workers choose non-employed if their reservation wages are larger than the offered wages. Whereas the offered wages depend on workers' productivity and firms' decisions, reservation wages are largely determined by workers' ...

    Assets, Shocks, and Poverty Traps in Rural Mozambique

    This paper explores welfare dynamics among households in rural Mozambique. Using household panel data, we test whether an asset-based poverty trap exists. Findings indicate that all rural households converge to one stable equilibrium in the medium term, which is close to the poverty line. This may indicate that households in rural Mozambique are collectively trapped in generalized underdevelopment. ...

    Multi-family Households in a Labour Supply Model: A Calibration Method with Application to Poland

    Models of cooperative and noncooperative behaviour opened the household "black box" and allowed for individual treatment of partners in couples. However, labour supply literature has so far largely ignored a broader issue - the distinction of single versus multi-family ("complex") households. We propose a method to account for multi-family household structure by borrowing from recent applications of ...

    Income Comparisons and Non-cognitive Skills

    People gain utility from occupying a higher ranked position in the income distribution of the reference group. This paper investigates whether these gains depend on an individual's set of non-cognitive skills. Using the 2000-2008 waves of the German Socioeconomic Panel dataset (SOEP), a subjective question on Life Satisfaction, and three different sets of non-cognitive skills indicators, we find significant ...

    Einkommens- und Vermögenssituation der Babyboomer

    Die finanzielle Lage und die Rentenaussichten der so genannten Babyboomer (Menschen, die den geburtenstarken Jahrgängen der Nachkriegszeit angehören) gaben in den letzten Jahren in den USA Anlass zur Besorgnis und haben große Aufmerksamkeit erregt. In Deutschland hingegen wurde die Frage, wie es den Babyboomern finanziell geht, bisher nur selten behandelt. Auf Grundlage der Studie "Sparen und Altersvorsorge ...

    Zeit- und Einkommensarmut von Selbständigen als Freiberufler und Unternehmer: ein Beitrag zu interdependenter multidimensionaler Armut und zu den "working poor"

    Fundierte Informationen über den Lebensstandard, die Einkommens- und Zeitsituation von Selbständigen - als Freiberufler und Unternehmer (Gewerbetreibende) - sind äußerst rar, obwohl diese Gruppe der Erwerbstätigen eine besondere Bedeutung als "Motor der Wirtschaft" zugesprochen wird. Unsere Studie ist dazu ein Beitrag und untersucht die Wohlfahrtssituation von Selbständigen, indem nicht nur nach der ...
