Should I stay or should I go? Bandwagons in the lab

Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, 150(June), s. 86- 97. Doi: 10.1016/j.jebo.2018.03.019

We experimentally investigate the impact of strategic uncertainty and complementarity on leader and follower behavior using the model of Farrell and Saloner (1985). At the core of the model are endogenous timing, irreversible actions and private valuations. We find that strategic complementarity strongly determines follower behavior. Once a subject decides to abandon the status quo the probability that other players jump on the bandwagon increases sharply. However, there is a reluctance to lead when leading is a conditional best response. We explain this deviation from the neo-classical equilibrium by injecting some noise in the equilibrium concept. We also find that cheap talk improves efficiency.

Environmental Policy and the Direction of Technical Change

The Scandinavian Journal of Economics, 120(4), s. 1100- 1138. Doi: 10.1111/sjoe.12254

Should governments direct R&D from "dirty" into "clean" technologies? How im-portant is this compared to carbon pricing? We inquire into this, introducing twonovelties compared to recent literature. We introduce decreasing returns to R&D, andallow future carbon taxes to in‡uence current R&D decisions. Our results suggest thatgovernments should prioritize clean R&D. Dealing with major environmental problemsrequires R&D to shift to clean technology. However, with most researchers workingwith clean technology, both productivity spillovers and future risks of being replacedincrease. Consequently, the wedge between private and social value of an innovation islargest for clean technologies.
