The psychological capital variables considered in this study are self-esteem and positive attitude. We examine in this study the roles of these two variables separately in the determination of wage, job satisfaction and happiness. Using the US data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youths, 1979 (NLSY79), we first estimate wage, happiness and job satisfaction equations with one of the psychological variables as an explanatory variable. This is exactly what most of the earlier studies have done. The current study, however, goes a step further. It extends the earlier research in an important direction by recognizing a possible simultaneous relationship among these four variables, and estimating these equations by an appropriate two-step procedure. Since computationally tractable compact formulas of the asymptotic variance-covariance matrices of these two-stage estimators that involve a mixture of four dependent variables with at least one as a binary variable are not available in literature, the study derives these formulas, and thus makes a further contribution to the literature. Our preliminary results indicate that, as predicted, both self-esteem and positive attitude not only influence wage, job satisfaction and happiness, but also are affected by them, especially in the mature adult sample. In the younger adult sample, the results are slightly different. These interesting results remain disguised when the simultaneous relationship proposed in this study is ignored.
