Work ethic, protestantism and human capital
Schaltegger, Christoph & Torgler, Benno (2010) Work ethic, protestantism and human capital. Economics Letters, 107(2), pp. 99-101.
Weber's contribution on Protestant work ethic has stimulated numerous social scientists. However, the question whether a Protestant specific work ethic exists at all is still rarely analysed. Our results indicate that work ethic is influenced by denomination-based religiosity and education.
