How to Make Scientists Agree: An Evolutionary Betting Mechanism

Author

Listed:
  • Slembeck, Tilman

Abstract

This paper proposes an evolutionary betting mechanism that refers to scientists' academic reputation. The mechanism provides incentives for theoretical and empirical researchers to work on joint projects, thereby producing more general findings and stylized facts that can be used in giving economic policy advice.
