Workshop
Kurzbeschreibung
The human desire for social status and prestige has recently received increasing interest in economics. Despite the huge body of theory and evidence, our understanding of how social image concerns affect social welfare remains limited, and it is unclear whether or to what extent social and industrial policy should be concerned with potential negative effects of the quest for status. Moreover, not only are the empirical results mixed and point to important behavioral heterogeneity, but also the theoretical approaches have taken different routes with at times strikingly different conclusions.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together scholars from Europe and the US working with different approaches and methodologies on the various facets of status concerns in order to engage in a discussion about what we know about the mechanisms behind and the economic consequences of status-seeking behavior, and to discuss when these concerns call for policy interventions and how these could be designed.

Workshop
Beschreibung

The focus of this workshop is a book-in-progress, by Macartan Humphreys (Columbia University/WZB) and Alan Jacobs (University of British Columbia/Hertie School of Governance), on an approach to drawing causal inferences from qualitative and quantitative evidence in a manner guided by theory. Topics to be discussed will include causal models and directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) and their uses for research design, the integration of process tracing with correlational analysis, case selection, and the optimal mix ​of ​intensive and extensive investigation.

International Conference
Beschreibung

The WZB is planning an international conference on matching markets. The conference "Matching Markets: Combining Theory and Applications," starting in the morning of July 14, 2016, and ending on July 15, 2016, will take place at the WZB in Berlin. The conference is organized by Inácio Bó (WZB), Rustamdjan Hakimov (WZB) and Dorothea Kübler (WZB).

Matching theory has matured to a point where matching theorists are able to make policy suggestions for real-life markets. The theory is supplemented by experiments and empirical analyses examining how to operate such markets.

WZB Distinguished Lecture in Social Sciences by Alvin E. Roth
Beschreibung

Why is it forbidden to sell and buy organs? Why is the exchange of kidneys that leads to many successful transplants allowed in some countries such as the US, but not in others like Germany? Which markets or transactions we allow, affects the choices that people have, and how they may pursue their goals. Kidney exchange would seem needlessly complex if we instead allowed kidneys to be bought and sold; but this is illegal everywhere except in the Islamic Republic of Iran. There are many other transactions that are repugnant or forbidden, and this differs between countries.

In the last 20 years, the study of matching markets has seen great innovations and marked progress. The theory has matured to a point where matching theorists are able to make policy suggestions for real-life markets. The theory is supplemented by experiments examining how to operate such markets. Notable applications are matching markets such as medical labor markets for interns, college admissions procedures, school choice programs, social housing assignments, and kidney exchange programs for patients all over the world.

Der Workshop beschäftigt sich mit der Rolle von Erwartungen für Entscheidungen auf Märkten. Individuelle Erwartungen sind in realen Märkten häufig sehr schwer zu messen, aber mit Hilfe von Laborexperimenten lassen sie sich abfragen und insbesondere lässt sich untersuchen, in welchem Zusammenhang die individuellen Erwartungen mit den Entscheidungen stehen.
