Welcome to the Chair of Political Economy (ECON)
Make profit or kill a mouse, or better do without the money and save the mouse? Individually, the majority decides in favor of the mouse’s life. But it is completely different in group decisions, where moral responsibility is shared and diffused. Nora Szech’s behavioral study is published in the top journal Review of Economic Studies.
This workshop is a joint endeavor by the KIT, the Université Sorbonne-Assas (Paris II) and the ZEW. It brings together researchers on market design both from theory and from the experimental-empirical side as well as decision-makers from the industries. One of the organizers is Nora Szech. The last workshop took place on October 14/15 in 2019 with Uri Gneezy (UCSD) as keynote speaker.
The next workshop will take place on June 15/16 in 2020. Keynote speaker is Dirk Bergemannn (Yale University).
