Publication in American Economic Journal: Microeconomics

The paper "Spillover Effects of Institutions on Cooperative Behavior, Preferences, and Beliefs” was published in November 2021 in the American Economic Journal: Mircoeconomics. In this study Prof. Engl and his collegues Prof. Roberto Weber (University of Zurich) and Prof. Arno Riedl (University of Maastricht) study experimentally how enforcement institutions affect behavior, preferences, and beliefs beyond their direct influence over the behaviors they control. In addition, the paper provides evidence for several factors, including characteristics of institutions, that enhance or limit the effectiveness and scope of spillover effects.
