(2020). “Early Life Health and Economic Success in Adulthood” in Klaus F. Zimmermann, ed., Handbook of Labor, Human Resources and Population Economics, New York, New York: Springer Publishing Co.
This handbook provides an integrated picture of knowledge about the economic and social behaviors and interactions of human beings on markets, in households, in companies and in societies. With a core basis in labor economics, human resources, demography and econometrics, it contains a large and complete summary and evaluation of the scientific state of the art.
It relates to relevant fields in law, behavioral science, psychology, health, biology, sociology and political science, among others, where basic human processes are considered. Long survey chapters on core knowledge are combined with shorter frontier research chapters and those with a clear policy perspective.
