Norm Enforcement on EBay

21 June 2016 at 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM

Room 207, Campus on Viale Romania, 32

Speaker: Axel Ockenfels, University of Cologne

Abstract: The science of norm enforcement, informed by theory and laboratory research, suggests that altruistic punishment is a key determinant of cooperation. My talk shows how this line of research can help to better understand eBay behavior and to design digital feedback and conflict resolution institutions that more effectively promote cooperation.
