Featured Article: Culture, money attitudes and economic outcomes


Culture, money attitudes and economic outcomes​Using novel survey data, the authors, Caroline Henchoz, Tristan Coste and Boris Wernli, examine attitudes towards money and to what extent they affect economic outcomes in Switzerland. They find that three main types of attitudes towards money co-exist: the prestige and power attitude, the money management attitude and the goal-oriented attitude. The distribution of these attitudes differs across Switzerland’s linguistic regions; all of them are more significant in the French-speaking part, compared to the German- and Italian-speaking parts of Switzerland.

Attitudes towards money shape financial behaviour, but the relationship varies depending on the type of financial behaviour. Read the full article now.
