Abstract

Which cultural concepts of family life exist in Germany? What is considered "normal", "desirable", and "deviant" and how do these ideas influence family formation and family life? These questions are the focus of the contributions collected in this volume, in which the diversity and contradictoriness of family models in Germany are identified. This book thus makes an important contribution to explaining the cultural understanding of demographic processes. Recommendations for future research and family policy are derived from the results of the study in order to better meet the needs of young people in Germany.

Abstract

Is the euro area getting closer with regard to business cycles? The study investigates the linkage between business cycle convergence and financial portfolio choice for a panel of 18 European countries. For this purpose an index is constructed which measures the similarity of investment portfolios. The idea is that financial portfolio choice has an impact on business cycles and contributes to convergence via the consumption-wealth linkage. The background of the analysis is the International Asset Pricing Model (IAPM). The results of fixed effects GMM TSLS estimations confirm the linkage. The effect is higher for country-pairs that are built by one euro area member and one member outside the euro area.
