The paper of  M. Keith Chen , "The Effect of Language on Economic Behavior:
Evidence from Savings Rates, Health Behaviors, and Retirement Assets"
relates in an interesting way the relation of language with the social and
personal habits. It makes me wonder, what implications this research offers
for language planning and policy? Please read the working paper here:
