The asymmetric experience of gains and losses in job security on health.

Health Econ 2021 Jun 17. Epub 2021 Jun 17.

The tax design allows to separately identify the causal impact of exogenous gains and losses in job security on workers' health. Difference-in-differences estimation results show that a greater job insecurity reduces significantly self-reported health. Read More

Perception fundamentally subserves survival and self-preservation in biological agents, such as humans. Survival however crucially depends on rapid and accurate information processing of what is happening in the here and now. Read More
