    Men are more competitive than women in the workplace

    New research confirms that men have a more competitive attitude than women. This result may partially explain why men often have higher positions and higher incomes.

    People rely on emotions and moral standards, such as the consideration of fairness, in their financial decisions. This makes them less rational than classical economic models tend to assume. One of Professor Sander Onderstal’s research topics is the behaviour of companies with the aim of adding elements to the classical theory that account for systematic deviations from it.
