Moving from the lab to the field: Exploring scrutiny and duration effects in lab experiments

Kenneth Leonard () and Melkiory C. Masatu

Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 100, issue 2, 284-287

Abstract: The most important issue facing experimental economists is the generalizability of lab results. This letter examines more than 1200 doctor/patient consultations, in which scrutiny and duration of treatment were varied. We show that scrutiny has an important but short-lived effect.
