The Best Paper in Behavioral and Experimental Economics Awarded to CERGE-EI Researchers

6 December, 2017

On Friday, November 24, 2017, Michal Bauer (CERGE-EI faculty member) and Vojtěch Bartoš (LMU Munich, a CERGE-EI PhD graduate) collected the prestigious Exeter Prize for Research in Experimental Economics, Decision Theory, and Behavioral Economics which they won together with their co-authors Julie Chytilova (CERGE-EI researcher) and Filip Matejka (CERGE-EI faculty member) for their paper published in the American Economic Review.

The prize is annually awarded to the best paper published in a peer-reviewed journal in the fields of Experimental Economics, Decision Theory, and Behavioral Economics. Exeter Business School organized a small topical workshop on the related topics of discrimination and inequality, where both Michal and Vojtěch presented their work.

Michal presented the winning paper "Attention Discrimination: Theory and Field Experiments with Monitoring Information Acquisition", while Vojtěch presented a new project entitled "Evidence for the Direct Effect of Poverty on Time Preference: An Experiment with Ultra-poor Farmers in Uganda", which is a joint work with Michal, Julie, and Ian Levely (Wageningen University).

Congratulations once again to Michal, Vojtěch, Julie, and Filip!
