Effort, revenu et rang. Une étude expérimentale

Revue économique, 2006, vol. 57, issue 3, 635-643

Abstract: This paper reports on the results of a laboratory experiment aiming at investigating the effects of wage comparisons on effort. Individuals compare to each others and such comparisons do affect their decisions. For a given absolute wage, those who get a lower rank in the distribution decrease their level of effort. Their effort is also influenced by the evolution of both their wage and their relative position over time. Classification JEL : M54, J33, A13, C92
