Do MTurkers Exhibit Myopic Loss Aversion?

Rene Schwaiger () and Laura Hueber ()

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

Abstract: We present results from a highly powered online experiment with 937 participants on Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) that examined whether MTurkers exhibit myopic loss aversion (MLA). The experiment consisted of measuring MLA-compliant behavior in two between-subjects treatments that differed only regarding the risk profile of the risky asset employed. We found no statistically significant evidence of MLA-compliant behavior among MTurkers in both treatments.
