Culture and Economics Virtual Issue

Economists have established that culture matters for a variety of economic outcomes.  Our religion, social norms, political attitudes, and family values all impact economic choices and processes, as do our attitudes towards things like fairness, trust, and risk. But defining and measuring cultural traits is challenging, and there is still a lot of debate over the extent to which culture affects the workings of our economies, and in exactly what ways. This virtual issue pulls together recent work—including freely accessible book chapters and journal articles—from OUP’s Economics publishing that casts light on these issues.
