讲座题目:Do Lookers-on See Most of the Game? Belief Dynamics and Decision-Making for Oneself versus for Others in a Labor Market Experiment

摘要:The mismatch between job-seekers and positions in the search process and its impact on market efficiency are of particular interest to labor economists and policy makers. We design a laboratory experiment exploring the dynamics of decision makers job-seeking strategies and belief updating in a labor market. We examine factors affecting the matching efficiency from behavioral economic perspectives such as self-assessment, cognitive bias and decision errors, and evaluate whether the “decision-making by agency” mode of labor-market intermediary could weaken such influence and improve the market efficiency. Our results show that the efficiency of “decision-making by agency” is generally not better than that of decision-making by oneself. The loss of efficiency is mainly due to the agency’s biased assessment and decision-making errors on the top-tier and bottom-tier job-seekers in the market, and the biases and errors do not disappear with feedback information or decision repetition. Meanwhile, the results of structural model estimate show that both job seekers and agencies generally exhibit attribution bias in belief updating. Agencies are more risk-averse in decision-making, while it does not reduce decision errors. Our findings may shed light on labor market policy design aiming at promoting stable employment and improving the functioning of market intermediaries.
