Study: How financial crises lower life satisfaction and how to prevent this

A new study by Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) and the Halle Institute for Economic Research (IWH) shows that weaker members of society are more affected by increased uncertainty during crisis times, even if they may not be speculating on the stock market themselves.

Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy”.
