Neues Vierteljahrsheft zur Wirtschaftsforschung: Stupsen und Schubsen (Nudging) : Beispiele aus Altersvorsorge, Gesundheit, Ernährung

Wir Menschen handeln in alltäglichen Situationen routiniert und automatisiert. So entscheiden die meisten selbstverständlich, ihren Arbeitslohn nicht sofort „auf den Kopf zu hauen“; sie teilen ihn für den Lebensunterhalt bis zum nächsten Lohntag auf. Aber Finanzwissen und Vernunft reichen oft nicht aus, um auch für die ferne Zukunft vorzusorgen. Das ist empirisch ...

All-Pay Competition with Captive Consumers

We study a game in which two firms compete in quality to serve a market consisting of consumers with different initial consideration sets. If both firms invest below a certain quality threshold, they only compete for those consumers already aware of their existence. Above this threshold, a firm is visible to all and the highest quality attracts all consumers. In equilibrium, firms do not choose their ...

Decomposing Trust

Abstract:  Trust is thought to be an important driver of economic growth and other economic outcomes. Previous studies suggest that trust may be a combination of risk attitudes, distributional preferences, betrayal aversion, and beliefs about the probability of being reciprocated. We compare the results of a binary trust game to the results of a series of control treatments that remove the...

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. The price has two effects on future ratings: (i) a direct price effect on reviews, and (ii) an indirect selection effect...
