Here are some show notes to a talk I gave in April 2023. I had the opportunity to talk to an undergraduate macroeconomics class at Indiana University East.
|2:00||Research on Behavioral economics and Macroeconomics|
|4:25||Labor Market Equilibrium Concepts and Incomplete Labor Contracts|
|6:50||The Gift Exchange Game and the Fair Wage-Effort Theory|
|13:00||Recessions and Downward Wage Rigidity|
|19:00||Presenting my Experimental Study “If Wages Fell During a Recession” in 13 minutes|
|32:00-33:00||How question raised in “If Wages Fell During a Recession” pointed the way to the Reference Point paper|
|33:00 – 41:00||Presenting my Experimental Study “My Reference Point, Not Yours” in 8 minutes|
|41:00-44:00||Conclusion of “My Reference Point, Not Yours” and tying it back to macroeconomics|
The “If Wages Fell…” paper directly inspired the “My Reference…” experiment. But I don’t cite “If Wages Fell…” in “My Reference…,” so you would never know how closely they are connected unless you listen to this talk.
