Experimental Economics and Policy Design - How to Deter Cartelization, Impede Collusion and Suppress Illegitimate Behavior

Hesch, Michael

In this thesis, we investigate three specific policy and regulatory issues from the field of law and economics by means of economic experimentation. We first analyze the effects of excluding cartel ringleaders from corporate leniency programs. Then, we evaluate pricing behavior under a new kind of price regulation scheme along the lines of the 'Austrian rule'. Finally, we introduce an explicit role for a strategically acting authority and investigate decision-making under ambiguity.
