Inducing risk preferences in economics experiments
A common procedure in experiments is to use binary lotteries to induce in all subjects pre-specified risk preferences. The validity of this procedure has been established only for a subject performing a single task, yet the procedure is normally applied in multi-task settings. This article formally analyses the multi-task case and establishes necessary and sufficient conditions relating to experimental design. New guidance is provided for the design of experiments involving interdependent tasks.
