Many studies have examined cross-national determinants of higher education expansion as well the understanding of expansion through the relationship between higher education and the labor market.

Wie kann der Wohlfahrtsstaat kindergerechter gedacht werden? Der bundesdeutsche Wohlfahrtsstaat privilegiert seit Jahrzehnten die altere Generation und scheut sich, Kinderlosigkeit kalkulatorisch bei der Finanzierung der Sozialversicherungen zu berucksichtigen.

Kinderpolitik z...

AbstractThis paper argues that Chicago School economist Gary Becker’s theory of fertility underpins contemporary rationalities of global population governance. Drawing on feminist critiques of biopolitics, the paper proposes reproduction as a missing link that ties Becker’s homo economicus to the aggregate question of population. It argues that Becker’s work challenged macroeconomic theories of fertility by figuring reproduction, and hence population patterns, as governed by the personal utility...

Parents and prospective students, and university administrators, rely on various indirect measures, including student satisfaction. This paper assesses the satisfaction levels of graduates from two degree programs offered in three universities in Chile, focusing principally on the graduates’ perceptions of the quality of their training programs. Data were...

In China, farmers are members of a cooperative for multiple reasons. Little is known on whether and how cooperative membership affects farmers’ choice of marketing channels. This paper examines determinants of farmers’ choice of marketing channels, especially how cooperative membership impacts upon this choice. Our analysis is based on...
