This week's seminar presentation will be given by Professor Claudiu Herteliu, Vice-Dean of Faculty of Economics, Cybernetics, Statistics and Informatics at the Bucharest University of Economic Studies. To give you a taste of the session, a brief abstract can be found below:

People use/exchange almost every day paper “money” or something equivalent, like a check or a card issued by a bank. There are also very different ways of thinking in relation with our faith regarding money administration. The differences between different religious people beliefs relating to money are discussed on the base of intrinsic and extrinsic religious behaviour. The design consists in applying a specific battery of items (e.g.: “Money brings happiness” or “Money is the eye of the devil”) among a large representative sample of Romanian population. Insights after using quantitative methods (contingency tables and logit regression) are provided. Furthermore, this study discusses a sensitive problem: the religious paradigm and its connections to economic concepts in modern societies.

Though the event finishes at 1pm, there will be an informal discussion continues until 2pm for those who wish to stay.
