Nikiforakis, Nikos; Oechssler, Jörg; Shah, Anvar, 2019, "Managerial bonuses and subordinate mistreatment [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/876SOV, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:rgdksaMzfE0dDvw+toLLbg== [fileUNF]
Can performance bonuses increase the likelihood that managers coerce their subordinates into exerting high levels of effort when doing so promotes neither efficiency nor equity? We consider a laboratory setting in which managers compete to obtain a large bonus at the end of the e...

Oechssler, Jörg; Rau, Hannes; Roomets, Alex, 2019, "Hedging, ambiguity, and the reversal of order axiom [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/1XDKHZ, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:c8rHrHnmCxS3BC4O6euGVQ== [fileUNF]
We ran experiments that gave subjects a straight-forward and simple opportunity to hedge away ambiguity in an Ellsberg-style experiment. Subjects had to make bets on the combined outcomes of a fair coin and a draw from an ambiguous urn. By modifying the timing of the draw, coin f...

Parenthood, marital status and social networks have been shown to relate to the well-being and mental health of older people. Using a large sample of respondents aged 50 and older from 16 European countries, we identify the associations of well-being and mental health with family...

Trautmann, Stefan T.; Kuilen, Gijs van de, 2014, "Belief Elicitation: A Horse Race among Truth Serums [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10004, heiDATA, V3, UNF:5:rdLqOxsqtpO3QKanCTJFPw== [fileUNF]
We pit non-incentivized introspection against five revealed preference mechanisms (“truth serums”) in the elicitation of beliefs in a simple two-player game. We measure the additivity, the predictive power for own behaviour, and the accuracy of each method. Beliefs from incentivi...

Schmidt, Robert, 2019, "Social Norm Perception in Economic Laboratory Experiments: Inexperienced versus Experienced Participants [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/SS8CBF, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:U1LI9PiySgsCh7gFvvaT9w== [fileUNF]
We study whether social norm perception in economic laboratory experiments differs between inexperienced and experienced participants. We find substantial differences between the two groups both regarding injunctive and descriptive social norms in the context of participation in...

Psychological distance effects have attracted the attention of behavioral economists in the context of descriptive modeling and behavioral policy. Indeed, psychological distance effects have been shown for an increasing number of domains and applications relevant to economic deci...

Dengler, Sebastian; Gerlagh, Reyer; Trautmann, Stefan T.; van de Kuilen, Gijs, 2019, "Climate policy commitment devices [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/R8HGIB, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:G5JiC8JlmlC3TYlJ68qogw== [fileUNF]
We develop a dynamic resource extraction game that mimics the global multi-generation planning problem for climate change and fossil fuel extraction. We implement the game under different conditions in the laboratory. Compared to a baseline condition, we find that policy interven...

Dürsch, Peter; Oechssler, Jörg; Vadovic, Radovan, 2014, "Sick Pay Provision in Experimental Labor Markets [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10010, heiDATA, V2, UNF:6:gwZx9SQucrST4uvXCxHw0w== [fileUNF]
Sick pay is a common provision in most labor contracts. This paper employs an experimental gift exchange environment to explore two related questions using both managers and undergraduates as subjects. First, do workers reciprocate generous sick pay with higher effort? Second, do...

Oechssler, Jörg; Roider, Andreas; Schmitz, Patrick W., 2018, "Cognitive Abilities and Behavioral Biases [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/FC6TFM, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:Ur0lg1+9V8E/LgM9GE822w== [fileUNF]
We use a simple, three-item test for cognitive abilities to investigate whether established behavioral biases that play a prominent role in behavioral economics and finance are related to cognitive abilities.We find that higher test scores on the cognitive reflection test of Fred...

Oechssler, Jörg; Roider, Andreas; Schmitz, Patrick W., 2018, "Cooling Off in Negotiations: Does it Work? [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/GPYRWB, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:Cbv7eaNL5WmdjsNqlQQScQ== [fileUNF]
Negotiations frequently end in conflict after one party rejects a final offer. In a large-scale Internet experiment, we investigate whether a 24-hour cooling-off period leads to fewer rejections in ultimatum bargaining. We conduct a standard cash treatment and a lottery treatment...
