The area is historically known as Clare Market. It has around 9, full-time students and just over 3, staff and had a total income of To date, there have been 16 Nobel Prize winners amongst its alumni and current and former staff, at least 37 world leaders, seven Pulitzer Prize winners and fellows of the British Academy.
European Economic Review, We extend previous theoretical work on n-players complete information all-pay auction to incorporate heterogeneous risk and loss averse utility functions.
We provide sufficient and necessary conditions for the existence of equilibria with a given set of active players with any strictly increasing utility functions and characterize the players' equilibrium mixed strategies. Assuming that players can be ordered by their risk aversion player a is more risk averse than player b if whenever player b prefers a certain payment over a given lottery so will player awe find that, in equilibrium, the more risk averse players either bid higher in terms of first order stochastic dominance of their mixed strategy cumulative distribution than the less risk averse players and win with higher ex-ante probability -- or they drop out.
Furthermore, while each player's expected bid decreases with the other players' risk aversion, her expected bid increases with her own risk aversion.
Thus, increasing a player's risk aversion creates two opposing effects on total expected bid. A sufficient condition for the total expected bid to decrease with a player's risk aversion is that this player is relatively more risk averse compared to the rest of the players.
Our findings have important implications for the literature on gender differences in competitiveness and for gender diversity in firms that use personnel contests for promotions. Using this design, we find that women bid higher than men, but only when bidding against other women.
These findings, interpreted through a theoretical model incorporating differences in risk attitude and the value of winning, suggest that women have a higher value of winning than men.
LSE Management with Impact Two players compete for a prize and their valuations are private information. The riskiest option was designed such that it is only preferred by risk-seeking individuals.
When advisers are offered a bonus for recommending this option, half of them recommend it. After the bonus was removed, its effect remained: A similar increase is found when advisers make the same choice for themselves.
To explain our results we provide a theory based on advisers trying to uphold a positive self-image of being incorruptible. Our experiment employs a simple all-pay auction within and between two university subject pools.
We find that when competing against their peers, students within the lower tier university bid more aggressively than students within the top-tier university. These findings, interpreted through a theoretical model incorporating both group identity and differential value of winning, suggest that students at the lower tier university have a stronger group identity as well as higher desire to win.
Apart from each player's own private valuation, she also observes a noisy signal regarding the opponent's valuation. We characterize the symmetric equilibrium of the contest when the signal is 1 conditionally independent private, or 2 public.
In the former, each player's expected payoff expected effort is always higher lower than when they do not receive any signal regarding the opponent. In the latter, the expected payoff expected effort can be either higher or lower than when they do not receive any signal, and the maximum of expected payoffs is characterized.
Numerical examples show that some private signals may induce higher expected payoffs than the maximum payoff induced by any public signals, and that some public signals can always induce higher total expected effort than any private signals.In the article entitled “The Case for Torture” published by Newsweek in , Michael Levin argues that the use of torture as a means to save lives is justifiable and necessary.
