Encourage Children To Read Buy Them Book Tokens

Children who grow up with a large number of books in the house earn more money later in life, according to a new study published in the Economic Journal.

Economists from the University of Padua in Italy studied 6,000 men born in nine European countries in the mid-20th century, categorising them depending on whether they had fewer than 10 books at home, a shelf of books, a bookcase with up to 100 books, two bookcases, or more than two.

Giorgio Brunello, Guglielmo Weber and Christoph Weiss estimated the effect of education on lifetime earnings by “distinguishing between individuals who lived in rural or urban areas during childhood, and between individuals with access to many or few books at home at age 10.”

The study said that although school reforms had the most effect on individuals in rural areas, “those with many books enjoyed substantially higher returns to their additional education”.

An extra year of education was found to increase a man’s lifetime earnings by 9% on average, but those brought up with very few books at home saw only a 5% rise. For subjects with a large number of books the rise was 21%.

Those with a larger amount of books were also found to be more likely to move to cities where there are better earning opportunities than those with few books.

Researchers said: “Perhaps books matter because they encourage children to read more and reading can have positive effects on school performance... Alternatively, a home filled with books indicates advantageous socio-economic conditions.”

Our jobsite domains go from strength to strength

Today browsing for jobs online is continually one of the most popular internet trends, constantly in the top 5 along with holidays/travel and one of the main contributing factors why the sales of newspapers have declined more than 750 million copies since the early 1990's and continue to do so today: Trinity chief executive Simon Fox said in February 2016: "Over a million people have stopped buying a newspaper in the past two years but we believe a large number of them can be tempted back with the right product'' Their NEW DAY tabloid launched in that very same month, was closed down by them just nine weeks later! Research also shows that recruiters prefer niche jobsites, rather than national ones, as these return better results, one of the reasons why now more than 70% of all East Yorkshire businesses regularly have recruitment adverts featured here with Bridjobs. This includes one of the region's larger employers Ebuyer Howden incorporating Wren Kitchen & Bedrooms.
