Who gets what--and why : the new economics of matchmaking and market design by Alvin E Roth( Book )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Nobel laureate reveals the often surprising rules that govern a vast array of activities -- both mundane and life-changing -- in which money may play little or no role. If you've ever sought a job or hired someone, applied to college or guided your child into a good kindergarten, asked someone out on a date or been asked out, you've participated in a kind of market. Most of the study of economics deals with commodity markets, where the price of a good connects sellers and buyers. But what about other kinds of "goods," like a spot in the Yale freshman class or a position at Google? This is the territory of matching markets, where "sellers" and "buyers" must choose each other, and price isn't the only factor determining who gets what. Alvin E. Roth is one of the world's leading experts on matching markets. He has even designed several of them, including the exchange that places medical students in residencies and the system that increases the number of kidney transplants by better matching donors to patients. In Who Gets What -- And Why, Roth reveals the matching markets hidden around us and shows how to recognize a good match and make smarter, more confident decisions"--
The handbook of experimental economics by John H Kagel( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, which comprises eight chapters, presents a comprehensive critical survey of the results and methods of laboratory experiments in economics. The first chapter provides an introduction to experimental economics as a whole, while the remaining chapters provide surveys by leading practitioners in areas of economics that have seen a concentration of experiments: public goods, coordination problems, bargaining, industrial organization, asset markets, auctions, and individual decision making." "The work aims both to help specialists set an agenda for future research and to provide nonspecialists with a critical review of work completed to date. Its focus is on elucidating the role of experimental studies as a progressive research tool so that, whenever possible, the emphasis is on looking at a series of experiments that build on one another. The contributors to the volume - Colin Camerer, Charles A. Holt, John H. Kagel, John O. Ledyard, Jack Ochs, Alvin E. Roth, and Shyam Sunder - adopt a particular methodological point of view: the way to learn how to design and conduct experiments is to consider how good experiments grow organically out of the issues and hypotheses they are designed to investigate."--Jacket
Game-theoretic models of bargaining by Alvin E Roth( Book )

27 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Game-Theoretic Models of Bargaining provides a comprehensive picture of the new developments in bargaining theory. It especially shows the way the use of axiomatic models has been complemented by the new results derived from strategic models. The papers in this volume are edited versions of those given at a conference on Game Theoretic Models of Bargaining held at the University of Pittsburgh. There are two distinct reasons why the study of bargaining is of fundamental importance in economics. The first is that many aspects of economic activity are directly influenced by bargaining between and among individuals, firms, and nations. The second is that bargaining occupies an important place in economic theory, since the 'pure bargaining problem' is at the opposite pole of economic phenomena from the case of 'perfect competition'. This volume is an outgrowth of the renewed interest in the strategic approach to the theory of bargaining and to the general theory of non-cooperative games
Two-sided matching : a study in game-theoretic modeling and analysis by Alvin E Roth( Book )

32 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This book] provides a comprehensive account of recent results concerning the game-theoretic analysis of two-sided matching such as between firms and workers in labor markets, and between buyers and sellers in auctions. The book begins with a discussion of empirical results concerning behavior in such markets, and then proceeds to analyze a variety of related models. Among the discrete and continuous models considered are those with complete or incomplete information, money or barter, single or multiple workers, and simple or complex preferences. The book examines the stability of outcomes, the modification of incentives to agents under different organizational rules, and the constraints imposed on market organization by the incentives. Using this wide range of related models and matching situations helps clarify which conclusions are robust and which depend on particular modeling assumptions"--Cover, p. [4]
Laboratory experimentation in economics : six points of view by Alvin E Roth( Book )

22 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and Chinese and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Testing economic propositions in laboratory experiments has proven a very fruitful research endeavor in recent years. This volume brings together the major contributors to experimental economics. The papers present their views on the way experiments should be done, on the power and limitations of the techniques, and on the areas in which experimentation could contribute substantially to our understanding of economic behavior. This book distills the main lessons from great experience in experimental work. It will be essential reading for all who wish to follow experimental work or who wish to do such work themselves

The Handbook of Experimental Economics by John H Kagel( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When The Handbook of Experimental Economics first came out in 1995, the notion of economists conducting lab experiments to generate data was relatively new. Since then, the field has exploded. This second volume of the Handbook covers some of the most exciting new growth areas in experimental economics, presents the latest results and experimental methods, and identifies promising new directions for future research. Featuring contributions by leading practitioners, the handbook describes experiments in macroeconomics, charitable giving, neuroeconomics, other-regarding preferences, market design, political economy, subject population effects, gender effects, auctions, and learning and the economics of small decisions. Contributors focus on key developments and report on experiments, highlighting the dialogue by experimenters with theorists and each other. While most of the experiments consist of laboratory studies, the book also includes several chapters that report extensively on field experiments related to the subject area studied.

Wer kriegt was - und warum? : Bildung, Jobs und Partnerwahl: wie Märkte funktionieren by Alvin E Roth( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in German and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wenn's nicht um Geld geht: Ein Nobelpreisträger zeigt, wie wir Märkte für uns nutzen können Wie finden Eltern die richtige Schule für ihr Kind? Oder Jobsuchende den richtigen Arbeitgeber - und umgekehrt? Wie finden Nierenkranke den richtigen Organspender? Und Singles den richtigen Partner? Nobelpreisträger Alvin Roth, einer der weltweit führenden Wirtschaftswissenschaftler, zeigt, was geschieht, wenn wir etwas wollen, das für Geld allein nicht zu kriegen ist - und wie wir unsere Ziele erreichen können. Alvin E. Roth, Spieltheoretiker, Miterfinder des>>Market Designs<<und Nobelpreisträger für Wirtschaft 2012, widmet sich in seinem Buch einem Thema, das uns täglich begegnet, ohne dass wir uns dessen bewusst sind: den Märkten, die sich kaum oder gar nicht über Preise regeln lassen - sondern über den Abgleich von Interessen, das optimale Verkuppeln von Wünschen zur Zufriedenheit aller. An vielen konkreten Beispielen aus Beruf und Alltag, von der Berufswahl bis zur Parkplatzsuche, vom Hauskauf über die Online-Partnervermittlung bis zur Organspende zeigt er, wie die verschiedenen Märkte funktionieren, die unser Leben bestimmen (ob wir wollen oder nicht) - und wie wir lernen können, sie zu unseren Gunsten zu nutzen
