Research Workshop: Dr. Feldhaus, Ruhr-Universität Bochum

Bema regularly invites internationally renowned researchers to Halle for lively scientific exchange in our Workshop: Research in Ethics and Accounting. On the 26th of April, Dr. Christoph Feldhaus will join us at 12.30 pm, to give a talk on Group decisions are more libertarian than individual decisions.

Abstract: We conduct laboratory experiments to study why, when, and how groups intervene in other people’s choices, and how the intervention behavior of groups differs from that of individuals. Across two different decision situations, we report robust evidence that groups are less likely to intervene in others’ choices than individuals. Exploiting the content of group chats, we show that the difference between groups and individuals seems due to social-image concerns: group members shy away from proposing interventions during the group discussions.
