Career Prospects and Effort Incentives: Evidence from Professional Soccer

It is difficult to test the prediction that future career prospects create implicit effort incentives because researchers cannot randomly “assign” career prospects to economic agents. To overcome this challenge, we use data from professional soccer, where employees of the same club face different external career opportunities depending on their nationality. We test whether the career prospect of being ...

A Note on Regressions with Interval Data on a Regressor

Motivated by Manski and Tamer (2002) and especially their partial identification analysis of the regression model where one covariate is only interval-measured, we present two extensions. Manski and Tamer (2002) propose two estimation approaches in this context, focussing on general results. The modified minimum distance (MMD) estimates the true identified set and the modified method of moments (MMM) ...

Leistungsanreize in Unternehmen

In der wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Forschung wird seit langem diskutiert, wie Karriereüberlegungen die Leistung am Arbeitsplatz beeinflussen. Ist eine leistungsorientierte Bezahlung, zum Beispiel in Form von Boni, überhaupt notwendig, um junge Arbeitnehmer zu motivieren? Diese könnten ohnehin stark durch die Aussicht auf zukünftige Beförderungen, die von ihrer Leistung abhängen, angetrieben sein. ...

Belief Precision and Effort Incentives in Promotion Contests

The career concerns literature predicts that incentives for effort decline as beliefs about ability become more precise (Holmström, 1982, 1999). In contrast, we show that effort can increase with belief precision when agents compete for promotions to better paid jobs that are assigned on the basis of perceived abilities. In this case, an intermediate level of precision provides the strongest incentive ...

Regulation of Pharmaceutical Prices: Evidence from a Reference Price Reform in Denmark

Reference price systems for prescription drugs constitute widely adopted cost containment tools. Under these regimes, patients co-pay a fraction of the difference between a drug's pharmacy retail price and a reference price that is set by the government. Reference prices are either externally (based on drug prices in other countries) or internally (based on domestic drug prices) determined. We study ...
