Working Papers from Faculty of Economics and Statistics, University of Innsbruck

Abstract: We compare the behavior of car mechanics and college students as sellers in experimental credence goods markets. Finding largely similar behavior, we note much more overtreatment by car mechanics, probably due to decision heuristics they learned in their professional training.
