Beauty and the Labor Market: A Special Invitation for L and P Readers



Professor Niclas Berggren poses the following invitation to our readers:
Several studies document that beauty plays a role in the labor market: beautiful people earn more than others. Three economists are conducting a study to see whether there is a beauty premium in politics as well, such that beautiful candidates have greater electoral success. You are hereby invited to participate in the study, run by Associate Professor Niclas Berggren (The Ratio Institute), Dr. Henrik Jordahl (Uppsala University) and Professor Panu Poutvaara (University of Helsinki).

For information on how to participate, see here. Please write LIBERTY&POWER when asked about where you heard about the study.
