2023-05-31 – 'Willing or complying? The delicate interplay between voluntary and mandatory interventions to promote farmers' environmental behavior' forthcoming in Food Policy
Should the future EU Common Agricultural Policy include more mandatory reqirements or focus on (compensated) voluntary adoption? We investigate this using lab experiments with farmers.
2023-05-01 – 'A Perspective on Pros and Cons of Stakeholder Participation in the Design of Economic Experiments for Agricultural Policymaking' forthcoming in Applied Economic Perspectives and Policy
We shere our experiences on involving stakeholders in the design of experiments that are used for informing agricultural policies.
2023-04-02 – 'Positive versus negative information: what is really shifting consumers’ intention to eat Norwegian salmon? Evidence from three European countries' forthcoming in Food Quality and Preference
We study the drivers affecting Norwegian salmon consumption in three European countries–Italy, Poland, and France–using the Theory of Planned Behaviour while experimentally testing the effects or neutral, positive, and negative information.
2023-02-28 – 'Attitudinal Drivers of Home Bias in Public Preferences for Transboundary Nature Protected Areas' forthcoming in Ecological Economics
We investigate why the valuation of transboundary nature protection areas differs for home vs. abroad protection.
2022-10-02 – 'Farmers' risk preferences in eleven European farming systems: A multi-country replication of Bocquého et al. (2014).' forthcoming in Applied Economic Perspectives and Policy
We replicate Geraldine's study of French farmers' risk preferences with 1,430 participants in 11 European farming systems. Our findings support using Cumulative Prospect Theory to describe observed behavior. Our farmers are less loss averse and more susceptible to probability distortion. We explore the heterogeneity between and within samples and discuss challenges in replications of economic experiments with farmers across farming contexts.
2022-05-23 – 'Endogeneity and measurement bias of the indicator variables in hybrid choice models: A Monte Carlo investigation' forthcoming in Environmental and Resource Economics
We show that while hybrid choice models control for measurement error, dealing with endogeneity requires explicit accounting for in the model. We demonstrate the extent of the bias resulting from measurement error and endogeneity and propose new specifications of a hybrid model that account for different kinds of endogeneity.
2022-03-20 – 'Valuing externalities of outdoor advertising in an urban setting - the case of Warsaw' forthcoming in Journal of Urban Economics
We propose a theoretical model of positive and negative externalities associated with outdoor advertising and estimate the value of its reductions in Warsaw (1.7 to 4.1 million EUR per year for free-standing ads and 5.5 – 9.3 million EUR per year for advertising on buildings).
2022-03-09 – 'The relative performance of ex-ante and ex-post measures to mitigate hypothetical and strategic bias in a stated preference study' forthcoming in Journal of Agricultural Economics
We test the performance of ex-ante (cheap talk) and ex-post (option to modify responses) measures to account for hypothetical and/or strategic bias. The econometric analysis makes use of innovative semi-parametric logit-mixed logit in addition to the state-of-the-art mixed logit model.
