UKRAINIAN FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
- I cannot be silent right now!
- Message to my Russian friends: "Dear Russian brothers and sisters! What Russia is doing to Ukraine right now is unthinkable. I know many of you. I know that you are good people and you don’t want war. Please, don’t be silent! Russian invasion in Ukraine is leading to a great tragedy! This aggression will destroy both countries. Do something, speak up and don’t be afraid because you are free people."
- Look how Russian police deals with their peaceful protesters supporting Ukraine. I am really sorry for you my Russian brothers and sisters, but I DO NOT want for Ukraine or any other country in the world to be like this. I understand Ukrainian people and Russians who live in Ukraine who are saying that they would rather die than live as a part of the Russian Federation.
- I was on the National Public Radio speaking about the events in Ukraine. Also, here is the Video of the interview.
- One of my personally favorite papers is forthcoming at Experimental Economics: “Recognizing Contributors: An Experiment on Public Goods”.
- The two new papers on conflict resolution are forthcoming at the Journal of Peace Research and the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization: “Why Can’t We Be Friends? Entitlements and the Costs of Conflict” and “When Parity Promotes Peace: Resolving Conflict Between Asymmetric Agents”.
- I have agreed to serve as an associate editor at the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization.
- If you are interested in experimental studies on contests, please find the following two papers that review most of the existing literature: "A Survey of Experimental Research on Contests, All-Pay Auctions and Tournaments" provides a review of more than 230 experimental studies on contests, all-pay auctions and tournaments. "Overbidding and Heterogeneous Behavior in Contest Experiments" suggests different explanations for the overbidding phenomenon in contests, including bounded rationality, utility of winning, other-regarding preferences, probability distortion, and the shape of the payoff function. It also provides explanations for heterogeneous behavior of contestants based on differences in preferences towards winning, inequality, risk and losses, and demographic differences.
