The dissertation consists of a collection of papers on the relationship between culture and economic development in mainly western European regions. Data sources like the EVS make it possible to measure culture. This allows the author to operationalise concepts like social capital and empirically explore the relation between (types of) social capital and economic growth. In addition, he investigates the antecedents of cultural differences in European regions.
