After the bonus was removed, its effect remained: LSE Management with Impact Two players compete for a prize and their valuations are private information. These findings, interpreted through a theoretical model incorporating both group identity and differential value of winning, suggest that students at the lower tier university have a stronger group identity as well as higher desire to win.
When advisers are offered a bonus for recommending this option, half of them recommend it. We extend previous theoretical work on n-players complete information all-pay auction to incorporate heterogeneous risk and loss averse utility functions.
To explain our results we provide a theory based on advisers trying to uphold a positive self-image of being incorruptible. We find that when competing against their peers, students within the lower tier university bid more aggressively than students within the top-tier university.
European Economic Review, These findings, interpreted through a theoretical model incorporating differences in risk attitude and the value of winning, suggest that women have a higher value of winning than men. Assuming that players can be ordered by their risk aversion player a is more risk averse than player b if whenever player b prefers a certain payment over a given lottery so will player awe find that, in equilibrium, the more risk averse players either bid higher in terms of first order stochastic dominance of their mixed strategy cumulative distribution than the less risk averse players and win with higher ex-ante probability -- or they drop out.
We characterize the symmetric equilibrium of the contest when the signal is 1 conditionally independent private, or 2 public. Our experiment employs a simple all-pay auction within and between two university subject pools.
Numerical examples show that some private signals may induce higher expected payoffs than the maximum payoff induced by any public signals, and that some public signals can always induce higher total expected effort than any private signals.
Our findings have important implications for the literature on gender differences in competitiveness and for gender diversity in firms that use personnel contests for promotions.
In the latter, the expected payoff expected effort can be either higher or lower than when they do not receive any signal, and the maximum of expected payoffs is characterized. Using this design, we find that women bid higher than men, but only when bidding against other women.
A similar increase is found when advisers make the same choice for themselves. The riskiest option was designed such that it is only preferred by risk-seeking individuals.After you have received the official LSE Summer School email offering you a place on the programme, you will receive a second email with a personalised link to the payment portal.
