Although an overwhelming majority of twin and adoption studies suggests that economically relevant behaviours and outcomes are at least moderately heritable, little is known about how and which genes are involved. My aim is to detect which genetic variants are robustly associated with traits such as risk preferences, subjective well-being and educational attainment, and to use that information to ascertain which genes are likely to exert causal influence.
