Economics and Business Seminar Series Logo
We use within-country data on combat operations during World War II, along with survey evidence, to show that war had a long-term scarring effect on entrepreneurial behavior after 1989 in the former communist countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia. In contrast, we document a limited impact of war exposure on present-day employment, and even a small positive effect on whether the respondent works in a high-skill industry. Our results are robust to controlling for fixed sub-national factors and a wide range of individual characteristics, as well as to using a self-reported survey measure of World War II family victimization. We explore the salience of several potential mechanisms, such as human capital, income, health, physical destruction and social capital.

Identity has been called a powerful and inescapable theme in our age. Identity, whether national, regional, religious or cultural, gains its value from demarcation; it is something that separates us from others. Identity has become fundamental in political discourse – yet, it remains vague. Memory and narrative are central to the construction of identities – from collective myths to national symbols.
