The Impact of Terrorism on Expectations, Trust and Happiness: The Case of the November 13 Attacks in Paris, France

Tom Coupé

Working Papers in Economics from University of Canterbury, Department of Economics and Finance

Abstract: I use quasi-experimental evidence to measure the impact of the November 13, 2015 attacks in Paris, France on various channels through which terrorism can affect the economy. The evidence suggest the attacks reduced optimism and increased trust in the national government but did not affect current life satisfaction nor political orientation.
