Performance, Competition and Corporate Social Responsibility in Organisations

Abstract: We examine experimentally the impact of corporate social responsibility techniques on individuals’ performance and willingness to compete. Our baseline treatment adopts the Niederle-Vesterlund (2007) paradigm whereby individuals perform a task under piece-rate and tournament incentives, followed by an opportunity to determine which of the two payment schemes they prefer. In our...

2D:4D and Economic Preferences in a Large Representative Sample of Germans

Over the last decade, there has been a growing interest in the association between 2D:4D, a putative marker for prenatal testosterone exposure, and economic preferences. The results are mixed, and part of the inconclusiveness may come from the typically limited sample sizes as well as the many “researcher degrees of freedom” in the analysis. To firmly test if 2D:4D is associated...

Which preferences cause horizontral sex segregation in fields of studies? Some experimental evidence

Die Persönlichkeit von Geflüchteten entscheidet mit darüber, wie gut Integration gelingt

Eine erhöhte Bereitschaft Risiken einzugehen, Gefälligkeiten zu erwidern sowie die Überzeugung, das eigene Leben im Griff zu haben führen dazu, dass Geflüchtete schneller in Deutschland Fuß fassen. Geflüchtete, die risikobereiter sind, eher Gefälligkeiten erwidern und stärker als andere davon überzeugt sind, das eigene Leben im Griff zu haben, integrieren ...


A refugee’s personality is one of the factors which decides how successful integration is

An increased willingness to take risks, reciprocating friendliness, and a conviction that they are in control of their own lives lead to refugees gaining a foothold in Germany faster.   Refugees who are more willing to take risks, who tend to reciprocate friendliness, and who are more strongly convinced than others are that they are in control of their lives integrate into society faster. This ...

Erwartungen an Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft - eine innovative Langfristbefragung zu sozialen Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen

Es wird mehr und mehr klar, dass die subjektive Wahrnehmung und Bewertung objektiver Ungleichheiten als 'gerecht' oder 'ungerecht' eine Schlüsselrolle für ihre Reproduktion und Auswirkungen spielen. Das LINOS-Projekt unter Leitung von Stefan Liebig untersucht, wie und warum die strukturellen Bedingungen, in denen Individuen eingebunden sind, diese Gerechtigkeitseinstellungen...
