Public bad prevention by majority voting on redistribution - Experimental evidence

Matthias Sutter
2002. Group Decision and Negotiation, 11, 415-428.

We present an experimental study on voting behavior in groups of seven persons where public bad prevention depends on redistributing income by qualified majority voting. Although a payoff-maximizing voting pattern exists which guarantees a qualified majority - thus maximizing both individual and group payoffs - the qualified majority is failed in 27% (relatively costly public bad), respectively 46% (relatively cheap public bad) of all decisions. Controlling for different degrees of social distance when casting votes (i.e. anonymous versus with identification) we find that social distance matters when stakes are relatively low, inducing less efficient outcomes for the group when voting behavior is revealed. The endogenously determined status of subjects with respect to redistribution ('unlucky subjects' lose, 'lucky subjects' win) systematically influences subjects' voting strategies and the collective outcomes, such that a higher number of unlucky subjects leads to less efficient outcomes for the group.

Representation and educational background of European economists in top journals of economics

Matthias Sutter, Martin Kocher and Robert Mrsic
2002. Empirica, 29, 275-288.

We assess the contribution of European authors to 10 top journals of economics from 1980 to 1998. Despite efforts on the European Union and national levels to promote academic excellence, European authors still play a minor role in top journals. Examining the development over time we find little evidence for an increasing share of European contributions. Particular attention has been paid to the educational background of European authors. There is still a segmentation of academic education along language barriers in continental Europe. However, a considerable proportion of European authors has received a Ph.D. from the US.

Energy-dependent production functions and the optimization model PRISE of Price-Induced Sectoral Evolution

Dietmar Lindenberger and Reiner Kümmel
2002. International Journal of Applied Thermodynamics, 5(3), 101-107.
In an attempt to integrate thermodynamics with economics, production functions are proposed that depend on capital, labor, and energy, and technological parameters associated with the energy conversion efficiency of the capital stock. Based on these production functions, which resolve most of the unexplained Solow residual of conventional economic growth theory, we develop the optimization model PRISE of PRice-Induced Sectoral Evolution. The model is designed to analyse potential changes of inputs, outputs, and profits in differently energy- and labor-intensive sectors of an economy in response to changing factor prices. It is tested empirically by considering the German sectoral economic evolution 1968-1989.

Experimental 'Beauty Contests' with homogeneous and heterogeneous players and with interior and boundary equilibria

Werner Güth, Martin Kocher and Matthias Sutter
2002. Economics Letters, 74, 219-228.

We study behavior in experimental beauty contests with, first, boundary and interior equilibria, and, second, homogeneous and heterogenous types of players. We find quicker and better convergence to the game-theoretic equilibrium with interior equilibria and homogeneous players.
