  • Property rights enforcement with unverifiable incomes 

    Auerbach, JU (Springer Verlag, 2018-08-21)
    I study the extent of secure property rights a planner can implement. Agents can produce output, appropriate others’ output, or work in property rights enforcement. The planner pays enforcement personnel using taxes collected ...
  • On the Measurement of the Government Spending Multiplier in the United States: an ARDL Cointegration Approach 

    Ebadi, E (Weissberg Publishing, 2018-10-18)
    This paper applies annual data from 1962 to 2011 to investigate the long run relationship between government spending and Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The common approach only considers defense government spending ...
  • El modelo SLX: ampliación de la forma general, y sensibilidad de los desbordamientos espaciales a la especificación de la W 

    Elhorst, JP; Halleck Vega, S (Funcas, 2017-05-01)
    The spatial lag of X model, a linear regression model extended to include explanatory variables observed on neighboring cross-sectional units, is the simplest spatial econometric model producing flexible spatial spillover ...
  • Stated Preferences for Conservation Policies Under Uncertainty: Insights on the Effect of Individuals’ Risk Attitudes in the Environmental Domain 

    Faccioli, M; Kuhfuss, L; Czajkowski, M (Springer Verlag for European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists, 2018-09-03)
    The outcome of a conservation policy is often subject to uncertainty. In stated preference valuation, it is increasingly recognised that uncertainty affects preferences for the outcomes of environmental policies. However, ...
  • The critical role of second-order normative beliefs in predicting energy conservation 

    Jachimowicz, JM; Hauser, OP; O'Brien, JD; Sherman, E; Galinsky, AD (Springer Nature, 2018-09-17)
    Sustaining large-scale public goods requires individuals to make environmentally friendly decisions today to benefit future generations. Recent research suggests that second-order normative beliefs are more powerful ...
  • Why factors facilitating collusion may not predict cartel occurrence — experimental evidence 

    Fonseca, M; Normann, HT; Li, Y (Wiley / Southern Economic Association, 2018-08-09)
    Factors facilitating collusion may not successfully predict cartel occurrence: When a factor predicts that collusion (explicit and tacit) becomes easier, firms might be less inclined to set up a cartel simply because tacit ...
  • When Costly Voting is Beneficial 

    Chakravarty, S; Kaplan, TR; Myles, G (Elsevier, 2018-09-20)
    We present a costly voting model in which each voter has a private valuation for their preferred outcome of a vote. When there is a zero cost to voting, all voters vote and hence all values are counted equally regardless ...
  • Cooperation through Coordination in Two Stages 

    Kaplan, TR; Ruffle, B; Shtudiner, Z (Elsevier, 2018-09-04)
    Efficient cooperation often requires coordination, such that exactly one of two players takes an available action. If the decisions whether to pursue the action are made simultaneously, then neither or both may acquiesce ...
  • Running out of time 

    Hauser, O (Springer Nature, 2018-04-18)
    Choosing how much to take and how much to preserve from our environment is a challenging task, and every small decision counts. A behavioural experiment sheds new light on how time pressure negatively affects sustainability ...
  • Failure to CAPTCHA Attention: Null Results from an Honesty Priming Experiment in Guatemala 

    Kettle, S; Hernandez, M; Sanders, M; Hauser, O; Ruda, S (MDPI, 2017-04-28)
    We report results from a large online randomised tax experiment in Guatemala. The trial involves short messages and choices presented to taxpayers as part of a CAPTCHA pop-up window immediately before they file a tax return, ...
  • Good Communication Requires Experimenting with Your Language 

    Hauser, O; Luca, M (Harvard Business Review, 2016-02-04)
  • (Mis)perceptions of inequality 

    Hauser, OP; Norton, MI (Elsevier, 2017-07-24)
    Laypeople's beliefs about the current distribution of outcomes such as income and wealth in their country influence their attitudes toward issues ranging from taxation to healthcare — but how accurate are these beliefs? ...
  • Think global, act local: Preserving the global commons 

    Hauser, OP; Hendriks, A; Rand, DG; Nowak, MA (Springer Nature, 2016-11-03)
    Preserving global public goods, such as the planet’s ecosystem, depends on large-scale cooperation, which is difficult to achieve because the standard reciprocity mechanisms weaken in large groups. Here we demonstrate a ...
  • Registered Replication Report: Rand, Greene, and Nowak (2012) 

    Bouwmeester, S; Verkoeijen, PPJL; Aczel, B; Barbosa, F; Bègue, L; Brañas-Garza, P; Chmura, TGH; Cornelissen, G; Døssing, FS; Espín, AM; Evans, AM; Ferreira-Santos, F; Fiedler, S; Flegr, J; Ghaffari, M; Glöckner, A; Goeschl, T; Guo, L; Hauser, OP; Hernan-Gonzalez, R; Herrero, A; Horne, Z; Houdek, P; Johannesson, M; Koppel, L; Kujal, P; Laine, T; Lohse, J; Martins, EC; Mauro, C; Mischkowski, D; Mukherjee, S; Myrseth, KOR; Navarro-Martínez, D; Neal, TMS; Novakova, J; Pagà, R; Paiva, TO; Palfi, B; Piovesan, M; Rahal, R-M; Salomon, E; Srinivasan, N; Srivastava, A; Szaszi, B; Szollosi, A; Thor, KØ; Tinghög, G; Trueblood, JS; Van Bavel, JJ; van ‘t Veer, AE; Västfjäll, D; Warner, M; Wengström, E; Wills, J; Wollbrant, CE (SAGE Publications / Association for Psychological Science, 2017-03-01)
    In an anonymous 4-person economic game, participants contributed more money to a common project (i.e., cooperated) when required to decide quickly than when forced to delay their decision (Rand, Greene & Nowak, 2012), a ...
  • How to Design (and Analyze) a Business Experiment 

    Hauser, O; Luca, M (Harvard Business Publishing, 2015-10-29)
    The rise of experimental evaluations within organizations — or what economists refer to as field experiments — has the potential to transform organizational decision-making, providing fresh insight into areas ranging ...
  • Your Company is Full of Good Experiments (You Just Have to Recognize Them) 

    Hauser, O; Luca, M (Harvard Business Publishing, 2015-11-23)
  • Cooperating with the future 

    Hauser, OP; Rand, DG; Peysakhovich, A; Nowak, MA (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-06-25)
    Overexploitation of renewable resources today has a high cost on the welfare of future generations1,2,3,4,5. Unlike in other public goods games6,7,8,9, however, future generations cannot reciprocate actions made today. ...
  • Innovation with field experiments: Studying organizational behaviors in actual organizations 

    Hauser, OP; Linos, E; Rogers, T (Elsevier, 2017-10-31)
    Organizational scholarship centers on understanding organizational context, usually captured through field studies, as well as determining causality, typically with laboratory experiments. We argue that field experiments ...
  • High stakes: A little more cheating, a lot less charity 

    Rahwan, Z; Hauser, OP; Kochanowska, E; Fasolo, B (Elsevier, 2018-06-11)
    We explore the downstream consequences of cheating–and resisting the temptation to cheat–at high stakes on pro-social behaviour and self-perceptions. In a large online sample, we replicate the seminal finding that cheating ...
  • Punishment does not promote cooperation under exploration dynamics when anti-social punishment is possible 

    Hauser, OP; Nowak, MA; Rand, DG (Elsevier, 2014-07-08)
    It has been argued that punishment promotes the evolution of cooperation when mutation rates are high (i.e. when agents engage in ‘exploration dynamics’). Mutations maintain a steady supply of agents that punish free-riders, ...
