Culturally-based beliefs and labour market institutions
Francesco Ferrante () and
No 2010-02, Working Papers from Universita' di Cassino, Dipartimento di Scienze Economiche
This paper has two main goals. The first is to provide empirical evidence that differences in labour market institutions across countries and, specifically, in how they provide protection to workers, can be attributed to underlying differences in culturally-based prior beliefs: in particular, people’s fatalism and trust in others. The second goal is to single out the socio-economic factors associated with these beliefs and the role of education in this regard.
