Pecuniary externalities in centralized and decentralized market formats: An experiment

We test in a controlled laboratory environment whether traders in a decentralizedmarket internalize the impact of their actions on market prices better than in a cen-tralized market.

Can Competition Aggravate Moral Hazard? A Multi-Principal-Agent Experiment

We conduct a principal-agent experiment and demonstrate that a monopolist agent protects the interest of a (robotized) principal better than when three agents compete to provide a service (project recommendation)

On the dynamic Stability of a Price Dispersion Model
