Gender Differences in Preferences
This paper reviews the literature on gender differences in economic experiments. In the three main sections, we identify robust differences in risk preferences, social (other-regarding) preferences,Expand
Behavioral Causes of the Bullwhip Effect and the Observed Value of Inventory Information
We study this phenomenon from a behavioral perspective in the context of a simple, serial, supply chain subject to information lags and stochastic demand. Expand
Partners and strangers revisited
Abstract This study replicates Andreoni's (Journal of Public Economics, 1988, 37, 291–304) public goods experiments. The results are not consistent with simple learning, but are compatible withExpand

Income and wealth heterogeneity in the voluntary provision of linear public goods

Alternative Rebate Rules in the Provision of a Threshold Public Good: An Experimental Investigation
