Example text

Maurice Halbwachs (1930) also acknowledged that the particular way of life in a rural civilisation constituted, in particular before the onset of urbanisation and industrialisation in the nineteenth century, an equilibrium and form of stability with regard to individual relationships: ‘People lived in one place, were adapted to each other, knew each other too well to be frequently exposed to these clashes that occurred when they passed from one place, situation, profession, world to another. Business, more restraint and easier, brought along fewer risks.

In the 2001 Eurobarometer concerning poverty and social exclusion, a question was formulated concerning the childhood of the interviewees, in particular concerning the financial difficulties experienced by their parents, when the last mentioned were in charge of their upbringing. Statistical analysis (results not reported) allows us to examine the effect of these financial difficulties during respondents’ childhood on the financial difficulties they are confronted with as adults. There is, as was to be expected, a strong correlation between these two variables: the probability of experiencing financial difficulties at an adult age is higher when one has spent her childhood in an economically disadvantaged environment (Corcoran 2001).
