Avinash Dixit ()

Journal of Human Resources, 2002, vol. 37, issue 4, 696-727

Abstract: The paper begins with a brief overview of the theory of incentives, with special attention to issues that are important in the public sector, in general and human capital in particular. It then reviews some case studies and empirical studies of incentives in the public sector, examining how these studies relate to the theory. Some implications for reform and design of organizations are drawn.
