April 11, 2014, Paola Mallucci, Ph.D. - Fairness Ideals in Distribution Channels

Paola MallucciAbstract: Existing research suggests that concerns for fairness may significantly affect the interactions between firms in a distribution channel. We analytically and experimentally evaluate how firms make decisions in a two-stage dyadic channel, in which firms decide on investments in the first stage and then on prices in the second stage. We find that firms’ behavior differs significantly from the predictions of the standard economic model and is consistent with the existence of fairness concerns. Using a Quantal Response Equilibrium (QRE) model, in which both the manufacturer and retailer make noisy best responses, we show fairness significantly impacts channel pricing decisions. Additionally, we compare four principles of distributive fairness: strict egalitarianism, liberal egalitarianism, and libertarianism, previously considered in the fairness literature, and a new principle of distributive fairness the sequence-aligned ideal that is studied first time in literature. Surprisingly, the new ideal, according to which the sequence of moving determines the formation of equitable payoff for players, significantly outperforms other fairness ideals.

Bio: Paola Mallucci’s research uses experimental and behavioral economics to understand how customers with non-standard preferences interact with profit-maximizing firms. In her work, she investigates how social preferences, such as social pressure and fairness, can affect important marketing decisions such as product pricing in channels and Corporate Social Responsibility actions. Her additional research interests include discrete choice modeling of experimental data, contractual choices and time inconsistency.

Mallucci is Assistant Professor of Marketing at the Wisconsin School of Business at the University of Wisconsin. She earned her Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota in 2013.

April 18, 2013, Tim Salmon, Ph.D. - Sabotage vs Discouragement: Which Dominates Post Promotion Tournament Behavior?

Tim Salmon headshotAbstract: We explore the behavior of losers of promotion tournaments after the tournament is concluded. We do so through the use of an experiment in which we vary the design of the promotion tournament to determine how tournament design affects post tournament effort. We provide a theoretical model demonstrating two possible effects from the tournaments which are strategic sabotage and the possibility that a worker becomes discouraged by the tournament outcome. We examine behavior after the tournament and find evidence suggesting that bad tournament design can lead to workers being discouraged. This discouragement effect is strong for low ability workers but not for high ability workers. On the other hand we do find evidence that some high ability workers engage in strategic sabotage but the incidence does not vary with the design of the promotion tournament.

Bio: Tim Salmon is Professor of Economics at Southern Methodist University. He earned his PhD from the Johns Hopkins University and has had prior positions at Florida State, The California Institute of Technology and the Federal Communications Commission. Tim is a behavioral economist who uses the tools of economic theory and experimental economics in trying to answer a range of applied mechanism design problems. His research has ranged from the design of auction mechanisms to the design of monitoring mechanisms for limiting corruption in developing countries.

April 25, 2014, Greg Waymire, Ph.D. - A Peek Behind the Curtain that Conceals Self-Dealing

Abstract: Self-dealing is difficult to study because its success depends on its concealment from its victims. A by-product of this is that researchers using naturally occurring data cannot directly observe strategies that successfully conceal self-dealing. We circumvent this problem by using an experiment where self-dealing emerges endogenously along with concealment actions that are fashioned by the self-dealer. We find that a significant percentage of subjects profitably self-deal and use multiple actions that likely have the combined effect of concealing self-dealing. These actions include opacity-preserving resource allocations, misleading direct communication, false promises about future resource divisions, and providing high early benefits to partners that can be subsequently exploited for personal gain. Interestingly, these choices also include profit skimming, which likely reduces both partner suspicions and the private gains from self-dealing. The ultimate consequence is that self-dealing occurs frequently, but its impact on the distribution of wealth and economic efficiency is limited considerably. Economies with frequent self-dealing produce comparable social gains to ones where self-dealing is largely eliminated by the provision of hard information that makes behavior transparent.

Bio: Gregory Waymire is the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Accounting at the Goizueta Business School of Emory University and Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the Economic Science Institute of Chapman University. His early research has examined the economic history of U.S. accounting. In this research he has explored a range of topics that include the relation between accounting earnings and early 20th century stock prices, the consequences of enforceable accounting rules imposed on U.S. railroads in 1906, and the association between corporate reporting and stock prices during the market crash of October 1929. His current research focuses on the economic foundations of accounting as manifested in transaction records, the role of accounting principles in promoting economic exchange, and the emergence of early 20th century U.S. accounting norms. He received his PhD from the University of Chicago in 1984 and is a past President of the American Accounting Association (2011-12).

April 28, 2014, Jeffrey Carpenter, Ph.D. - Motivating Agents: How much does the mission matter?

Jeffrey CarpenterAbstract: Economic theory predicts that agents work harder if they believe in the mission of the organization. We conduct a real effort experiment with workers whose mission preferences are known, randomly assigning them to organizations with clear missions to create both mission matches and mismatches. Our estimates suggest that matching is a strong motivator, especially compared to mismatches. Further, we find that performance pay increases effort, though mostly among mismatched workers who substitute pay for mission matching. Our results have implications for how organizations define their missions and highlight the importance of screening and compensation policies.

Bio: Jeffrey Carpenter is the James Jermain Professor of Political Economy at Middlebury College and an Associate Editor at Management Science, the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization and the Journal of Socio-Economics. His research has been published in the American Economic Review, the Review of Economic Studies, the Economic Journal, Games and Economic Behavior, the Industrial and Labor Relations Review, the Journal of Public Economics, and the Proceedings on the National Academy of Sciences, among other journals. His research interests include Experimental and Behavioral Economics with applications to Labor, Public and Development Economics.

May 2, 2014, Effrosyni Faye Diamantoudi, Ph.D. - Subsidies, emissions, and social welfare in general equilibrium with imperfect competition

Abstract: Governments often grand various forms of subsidies, like low interest .financing and price support, to specific firms or sectors. It has been shown that, when using partial equilibrium models, subsidies granded to environmentally sensitive sectors increase both output and emissions. However, welfare effects of subsidies in the presence of emission externalities has not been examined thoroughly. On the other hand, previous work in general equilibrium with imperfect competition has demonstrated that subsidies can increase the social welfare as, in the presence of market power, the market outcome is no longer

Pareto optimal. However, these models do not consider pollution as a factor of the social welfare. In this paper we examine the environmental and welfare effects of subsidies in general equilibrium under imperfect competition in the output market. We show that when firms differ in their emission intensities and their total factor productivities, awarding subsidies can increase or decrease the social welfare depending on the tradeoff between output and emissions. We analyze the conditions under which a price support has a positive effect on reducing total emissions and raising social welfare. Furthermore, it is shown that, unlike in the case of market imperfection alone, the optimal tax in the presence of distorting subsidies might be greater than the marginal social damage.

Bio: Effrosyni Diamantoudi is an Associate Professor at the Department of Economics of Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. She earned her PhD in Economics from McGill University. She previously served as an Assistant Professor at the University of Aarhus in Aarhus, Denmark and at Concordia University.

May 12, 2014, Don Ross, Ph.D - Psychological versus economic models of bounded rationality

Don RossAbstract: That the rationality of individual people is ‘bounded’ – that is, finite in scope and representational reach, and constrained by the opportunity cost of time – cannot reasonably be controversial as an empirical matter. In this context, the paper addresses the question as to why, if economics is an empirical science, economists introduce bounds on the rationality of agents in their models only grudgingly and partially. The answer defended in the paper is that most economists are interested primarily in markets and only secondarily in the dynamics of individual decisions – specifically, they are interested in these dynamics mainly insofar as they might systematically influence the most useful approaches to modeling interesting markets. In market contexts, bounds on rationality are typically generated by institutional and informational properties specific to the market in question, which arise and are sustained by structural dynamics that do not originate in or reduce to individuals’ decisions or psychological dispositions. To be sure, these influences interact with psychological dispositions, so economists have reason to attend to the psychology of valuation. But no general model of bounded rationality should ever be expected to feature in the economist’s toolkit, regardless of the extent to which psychologists successfully identify specific human cognitive limitations. Use of moderate rational expectations assumptions should be understood in this light. Such assumptions are readily relaxed in specific applications, and in ways customized to modeling circumstances, that modelers, experimentalists and econometricians are making steadily more sophisticated.
