Download (8MB) | Preview


This dissertation includes three essays on topics in labor and behavioral economics. The first chapter studies a long-lasting question in labor, namely if public-sector workers are paid more than their counterfactual wages in the private sector. The second chapter experimentally studies the
problem of adverse selection occurring over time. Finally, the third chapter examines decision-making when agents become aware of hitherto unknown contingencies, also using experimental methods.
