Wolfgang Heim talks with Nora Szech about market and competition design, morals, and consumption behavior. The show is available as a podcast.
What kind of effects do we see from the rule "priority in case of equal qualification"? Stronger as well as weaker candidates may become more motivated. Diversity and performance incentives then do not exclude each other, but become rather aligned.
To the study. (and)
Check out our latest research on information release in auctions. We compare incentives from welfare and profit perspectives, and investigate the role of the number of bidders.
Detailed information on incentive structures can make agents perform worse. With coarse information structures, better performance results become possible, and agents can avoid feeling stressed. Check out our recent empirical findings from an economic experiment.
In many contexts, for example in committees, diffusion of moral responsibility and sharing of guilt play crucial roles. This influences the design of institutions in order to prevent erosion of moral responsibility.
Have a look at our institution-design-study and our experimental study!
Nora Szech is a KIT expert with a focus on markets and market design and on how institutions shape our moral values.
