The Borghans et al (2008) Journal of Human Resources paper is cited over 200 times at this stage and is likely to be one of the most cited papers ever published in the journal (the famous Blinder decomposition paper has over 2000 citations but is nearly 40 years old). Almlund, Duckworth, Heckman and Kautz have written another extensive paper developing the literature on personalilty and economics linked here.
