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...

Nikiforakis, Nikos; Oechssler, Jörg; Shah, Anwar, 2014, "Hierarchy, Coercion, and Exploitation: An Experimental Analysis [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10015, 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...

Oechssler, Jörg; Schmidt, Carsten; Schnedler, Wendelin, 2014, "On the Ingredients for Bubble Formation: Informed Traders and Communication [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10018, 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]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10022, 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...

Eichberger, Jürgen; Oechssler, Jörg; Schnedler, Wendelin, 2014, "How do subjects view multiple sources of ambiguity? [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10023, 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, Steffen; Oechssler, Jörg; Weidenholzer, Simon, 2014, "Imitation and the Evolution of Walrasian Behavior: Theoretically Fragile but Behaviorally [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10021, 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...

Apesteguia, Jose; Huck, Jose; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Imitation - Theory and Experimental Evidence [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10019, 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...

Huck, Steffen; Normann, Hans-Theo; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Two are Few and Four are Many: Number Effects in Experimental Oligopoly [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10017, 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...

Huck, Steffen; Normann, Hans-Theo; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Does Information about Competitors' Actions Increase or Decrease Competition in Experimental Oligopoly Markets? [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10020, 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...

Huck, Steffen; Normann, Hans-Theo; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Stability of the Cournot Process - Experimental Evidence [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10014, 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...
