Bernhard Binder-Hammer is a population economist at the Vienna Institute for Demography at the Austrian Academy of Sciences. His main research focus is the generational economy. This includes the analysis of links between demographic characteristics and economic activity, as well as the measurement and analysis of intergenerational transfer flows.
Since his studies began, Bernhard Binder-Hammer has been working with National Transfer Accounts, which reflect these aspects of generational economics. He is particularly interested in the effects of economic crises on younger generations. He is convinced that economic analysis from a generational perspective contributes to a much deeper understanding of economic and social developments.
