What makes a successful life? The role of financial deprivation

The DART Research Group are pleased to host Professor Andrew Clark from Kingston University Business School/Paris School of Economics.

Abstract

We here consider the adult cognitive and non-cognitive consequences of growing up with a mother who reported major financial problems. Data from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children show that mother's major financial problems are associated with worse cognitive and non-cognitive outcomes in adolescence, even after controlling for both income and a set of standard variables. Further, the size of the major financial problems effect is larger than that of income. Distinguishing by child age when the problems occurred, we find larger effect on physical health for problems in early childhood, with on the contrary a sharper effect on educational outcomes for financial problems in later childhood.
