Oechssler, Jörg; Roomets, Alex, 2015, "A Test of Mechanical Ambiguity [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V1, UNF:5:0TQJ35gJjj9nUWl9FiZstA== [fileUNF]
We implement an experiment to elicit subjects’ ambiguity attitudes in the spirit of Ellsberg's three-color urn. The procedure includes three design elements that (together) have not been featured in similar experiments: Strict ambiguity preferences, a single decision, and a mecha...

Oechssler, Jörg; Roider, Andreas; Schmitz, Patrick W., 2018, "Cognitive Abilities and Behavioral Biases [Dataset]",, 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]",, 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...

Huck, Steffen; Normann, Hans-Theo; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Does Information about Competitors' Actions Increase or Decrease Competition in Experimental Oligopoly Markets? [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V1
This paper investigates the impact the publication of firm-specific data has on the competitiveness of experimental oligopoly markets. We compare two treatments: in one, firms are informed about their rivals’ actions and profits. In the other, firms are only given aggregate infor...

Oechssler, Jörg; Roomets, Alex; Roth, Stefan, 2016, "From imitation to collusion: a replication [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V2, UNF:5:qSzzvlOu2rl8/AR8TIBEEQ== [fileUNF]
In oligopoly, imitating the most successful competitor yields very competitive outcomes. This theoretical prediction has been confirmed experimentally by a number of studies. A recent paper by Friedman et al. (J Econ Theory 155:185–205, 2015) qualifies those results in an interes...

Oechssler, Jörg; Rau, Hannes; Roomets, Alex, 2019, "Hedging, ambiguity, and the reversal of order axiom [Dataset]",, 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...

Nikiforakis, Nikos; Oechssler, Jörg; Shah, Anwar, 2014, "Hierarchy, Coercion, and Exploitation: An Experimental Analysis [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V3, UNF:5:Vep1OzKyX8y7uU4Zs/av/g== [fileUNF]
The power to coerce workers is important for the efficient operation of hierarchically structured organizations. However, this power can also be used by managers to exploit their subordinates for their own benefit. We examine the relationship between the power to coerce and explo...

Eichberger, Jürgen; Oechssler, Jörg; Schnedler, Wendelin, 2014, "How do subjects view multiple sources of ambiguity? [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V1, UNF:5:opzxnDkbHOo4fM7i9CoiIw== [fileUNF]
As illustrated by the famous Ellsberg paradox, many subjects prefer to bet on events with known rather than with unknown probabilities, i.e., they are ambiguity averse. In an experiment, we examine subjects’ choices when there is an additional source of ambiguity, namely, when th...

Apesteguia, Jose; Huck, Jose; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Imitation - Theory and Experimental Evidence [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V1, UNF:5:5pL5x5wCWhIWWBXoTb46LA== [fileUNF]
We introduce a generalized theoretical approach to study imitation and subject it to rigorous experimental testing. In our theoretical analysis we find that the different predictions of previous imitation models are mainly explained by different informational assumptions, and to...

Apesteguia, Jose; Huck, Steffen; Oechssler, Jörg; Weidenholzer, Simon, 2014, "Imitation and the Evolution of Walrasian Behavior: Theoretically Fragile but Behaviorally [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V2, UNF:5:9uTZvsy6tiSJe0U8/cdxPw== [fileUNF]
A well-known result by Vega-Redondo (1997) [18] implies that in symmetric Cournot oligopolies, imitation leads to the Walrasian outcome. We show that this result is not robust to the slightest asymmetry in costs, since every outcome where agents choose identical actions will be p...
