Mechanism Performance Under Strategy Advice and Sub-Optimal Play: A School Choice Experiment
We implement a laboratory experiment to study how strategy advice affects participants' decisions in a school choice game. Expand

Psychosocial Factors Impacting Workplace Injury Rehabilitation: Evaluation of a Concise Screening Tool
Purpose To determine whether the delayed recovery often observed in simple musculoskeletal injuries occurring at work is related to poor workplace and home social support. Method A four questionExpand

Manipulability in Constrained School Choice
In constrained school choice mechanisms, students can only rank a subset of the schools they could potentially access. Expand

Matching Soulmates
We study iterated matching of soulmates [IMS] — the process of matching coalitions that are the favorite for each member (soulmates), coalitions of soulmates in the remaining group, and so on.Expand

In Search of Advice for Participants in Constrained School Choice
School choice mechanisms are typically constrained, with students allowed to report preferences on a limited number of schools only Under constraints, the deferred acceptance mechanism (DA) isExpand

Egalitarianism with a Dash of Fair Efficiency
We study the construction of Paretian egalitarian social ordering functions in a distribution model with multiple goods and heterogeneous preferences. Given the impossibility to combine equality ofExpand
Impossibilities for Strategy-Proof Committee Selection Mechanisms with Vetoes
When a group of voters selects a committee out of a set of candidates, it is common and often desirable to endow these voters with some veto power. I present impossibility results showing that evenExpand
Non-Cooperative Team Formation and a Team Formation Mechanism
We model decentralized team formation as a game in which players make offers to potential teams whose members then either accept or reject the offers. The games induce no-delay subgame perfectExpand
Betting and Belief: Prediction Markets and Attribution of Climate Change
Despite much scientific evidence, a large fraction of the American public doubts that greenhouse gases are causing global warming. We present a simulation model as a computational test-bed forExpand
Deferred acceptance is minimally manipulable
This paper shows that the deferred acceptance mechanism (DA) cannot be improved upon in terms of manipulability without compromising stability. A conflict between manipulability and fairness is alsoExpand
