Self-Serving Biased Reference Points in Bankruptcy Problems

Andrea Gallice ()

No 67, Working papers from Department of Economics and Statistics (Dipartimento di Scienze Economico-Sociali e Matematico-Statistiche), University of Torino

Abstract: I formalize the notion of self-serving bias within the framework of reference-dependent preferences. Self-serving bias affects agents' expectations in a systematic way and, through this channel, it influences their reference points. I then apply the model to bankruptcy problems and provide a ranking of standard allocative rules on the basis of the level of welfare that they generate.
