Social capital and windfalls: empirical evidence

Y. Georgellis, J. Sessions, N. Tsitsianis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We examine the correlates of windfall gains amongst a sample of British respondents. Our results suggest that such gains are not random, but are significantly related to a variety of individual characteristics and traits. In particular, proxies of social capital are significantly related to the probability of receiving a windfall.
