Becker, Johannes G.; Damianov, Damian S.; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Uniform vs. discriminatory auctions with variable supply – experimental evidence [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V1, UNF:5:JkjthKWUQF+SGftTh1TTyg== [fileUNF]
In the variable supply auction considered here, the seller decides how many customers with unit demand to serve after observing their bids. Bidders are uncertain about the seller's cost. We experimentally investigate whether a uniform or a discriminatory price auction is better f...

Huck, Steffen; Normann, Hans-Theo; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Two are Few and Four are Many: Number Effects in Experimental Oligopoly [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V1, UNF:5:ZO79Xsj/X7piQu3p8pQheg== [fileUNF]
In this paper we investigate how the competitiveness of Cournot markets varies with the number of firms in an industry. We review previous Cournot experiments in the literature. Additionally, we conduct a new series of experiments studying oligopolies with two, three, four, and f...

Reischmann, Andreas; Oechssler, Jörg, 2018, "The Binary Conditional Contribution Mechanism for public good provision in dynamic settings - Theory and experimental evidence [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:oGAQOEsaP2z2MtFReyc6Uw== [fileUNF]
We present a new and simple mechanism for repeated public good environments. In the Binary Conditional Contribution Mechanism (BCCM), every agent's message has the form, “I am willing to contribute to the public good if at least k agents contribute in total.” This mechanism offer...

Huck, Steffen; Normann, Hans-Theo; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Stability of the Cournot Process - Experimental Evidence [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V1
We report results of experiments designed to test the predictions of the best-reply process. In a Cournot oligopoly with four firms, the best-reply process should theoretically explode if demand and cost functions are linear. We find, however, no experimental evidence of such ins...

Dürsch, Peter; Oechssler, Jörg; Vadovic, Radovan, 2014, "Sick Pay Provision in Experimental Labor Markets [Dataset]",, 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...

Dürsch, Peter; Kolb, Albert; Oechssler, Jörg; Schipper, Burkhard C., 2014, "Rage Against the Machines: How Subjects Learn to Play Against Computers [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V3, UNF:5:UE+VbT403TpvbwYdzJeHMQ== [fileUNF]
We use a large-scale internet experiment to explore how subjects learn to play against computers that are programmed to follow one of a number of standard learning algorithms. The learning theories are (unbeknown to subjects) a best response process, fictitious play, imitation, r...

Oechssler, Jörg; Schmidt, Carsten; Schnedler, Wendelin, 2014, "On the Ingredients for Bubble Formation: Informed Traders and Communication [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V2, UNF:5:CfRgi4YFxqGebpDZgTc48w== [fileUNF]
Bubbles in asset markets have been documented in numerous experiments. Most experiments in which bubbles occur feature a declining fundamental value. This feature has been criticized for being atypical of real financial markets. Here, we experimentally study other ingredients for...

Bauernschuster, Stefan; Dürsch, Peter; Oechssler, Jörg; Vadovic, Radovan, 2014, "Mandatory Sick Pay Provision: A Labor Market Experiment [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V2, UNF:5:QN3j/kE7cRnB9bWCisLgMg== [fileUNF]
The question whether a minimum rate of sick pay should be mandated is much debated. We study the effects of this kind of intervention with student subjects in an experimental laboratory setting rich enough to allow for moral hazard, adverse selection, and crowding out of good int...

Nikiforakis, Nikos; Oechssler, Jörg; Shah, Anvar, 2019, "Managerial bonuses and subordinate mistreatment [Dataset]",, 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...

Huck, Steffen; Normann, Hans-Theo; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Learning in Cournot Oligopoly - An Experiment [Dataset]",, heiDATA, V1
This experiment was designed to test various learning theories in the context of a Cournot oligopoly. We derive theoretical predictions for the learning theories and test these predictions by varying the information given to subjects. The results show that some subjects imitate s...
