My main interest is how socio-economic variables affect the human life experience and the ‘unanswerable’ economic mysteries in life. To date, all academic research projects concern one of the following areas:

  • Happiness – Death, satisfaction, expectations, health satisfaction, job satisfaction, income
  • Labour market – Labour supply, discrimination, search efficiency, entrepreneurs, education
  • Development – Social capital, relational capital, creative destruction, economic development, rural-urban migration in China and Indonesia
  • Popular science – Cultural Convergence, Pandora’s Box, the Golden Age of Humanity, God’s Phone Number
