The Microeconomics Research Seminar welcomes
Astrid Dannenberg (U Kassel),
who will present her work on
"Competitive Pressure to Cheat: Experimental Evidence of Individuals and Groups".
Place: Room 0029, Von-Melle-Park 5
Hour: 17:15 - 18:45
We are looking forward to seeing you there!
We investigate experimentally if individuals and groups cheat more when they are in competition with rivals compared to a noncompetitive environment. Our results show that individuals do not significantly change their behavior when they compete against other individuals or groups. Groups generally cheat more than individuals. Furthermore, they increase the degree of cheating in competition – but only when they compete against other groups and not when they compete against individuals.
