About Simon Schürz

I am a PhD Candidate working on development and applied micro- economics. My research is focused on economic decision-making within the family, household and the close social environment. In my dissertation, I study family decisions on educational investments to children in a low-income context, bequest choices at old age and their meaning for public policy as well as the distribution of social preferences in adolescent peer networks. More generally, I am interested in the role of preferences, decision powers and information asymmetries in determining economics outcomes within the family and household.
