Essays in Behavioural and Experimental Economics

Disertační téma:
Essays in Behavioural and Experimental Economics

Disertační teze:
In my early work, I experimentally examine two complex multi-unit auction mechanisms with an opportunity to communicate and thus collude while comparing these mechanisms in terms of efficiency. Strikingly, allowing for communication increases efficiency in examined auction formats. A cheap-talk collusive agreement resulted in a better allocation compared to the treatments without communication. I hypothesise that complex auction formats make the decision-making of bidders too complicated and cause inefficiency, especially in auctions with large numbers of goods.

In my next work, I provide a meta-analysis of a key parameter estimated by both lab and field experiments in economics — the individual discount rate. I examine the extent to which the variance of the discount rate can be attributed to observable differences in experimental design and selective reporting in the literature. I employ Bayesian and frequentist model averaging to address the model uncertainty and identify the drivers that affect the individual discount rate the most. The results show publication bias against unintuitive results. The corrected mean annual discount rate is less than half the size of the simple mean of the reported values.

Most recently, I study whether financial incentives motivate people to work better. I take stock of emerging research in economics, collect a total of 1568 estimates from 44 different studies, and codify 39 variables to capture the underlying nature of incentives' effect on motivation and performance. I perform a meta-analysis on this dataset. A range of statistical tests suggests the overall effect is virtually zero. I employ Bayesian and frequentist model averaging to identify the most prominent effect determinants. Among these, publication bias pushes this effect upward the most.
