These previous interviews allow us to have very good income measures, and in particular to construct a measure of relative income that uses past income as a reference point. Our basic ...

Room 5.2.010
Mohrenstraße 58

Abstract:Attempts to measure learning are hampered by the tendency to use precise and objective information. As a result, an important part of what people learn remains below surface. In this paper we depart from this tradition. Our approach is to measure learning with subjective questions which capture the theoretical concepts. We distinguish between the time used to learn and outcomes. We also ...

Abstract: This paper studies how a "preference for consistency" can affect economic decision-making. We propose a two-period model of decision-making where people have a preference for consistency because consistent behavior allows them to signal personal and intellectual strength. This creates a trade-off between choosing according to their beliefs and reputational concerns. We then ...
