    Consumer Rating Dynamics

    (joint with André Stenzel and Peter Schmidt) We consider dynamic price-setting in the presence of rating systems and asymmetric information about product quality. We provide a framework in which the price charged determines the characteristics of purchasing consumers.

This paper estimates causal effects of PAYT on unsorted, recycling and total waste generation, and analyzes the determinants of policy adoption and compliance. The empirical strategy uses a multiple random forest approach on a unique six-year panel data...
