Lost job, lost trust? On the effect of involuntary job loss on trust

Tim Friehe and Jan Marcus ()

Journal of Economic Psychology, 2021, vol. 84, issue C

Abstract: This paper tests the conjecture that involuntary job loss erodes trust. Using the German Socio-Economic Panel and considering how trust evolves over a quinquennial time interval, we find that job loss decreases trust by about 9 percent of a standard deviation.
