Empirical essays in the residential demand for electricity by James Marvin Walker( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation consists of a series of studies, both experimental and non-experimental, using data on electricity demand with the individual households as the unit of observation. These studies address several questions of interest in economics such as short run versus long run price elasticities, the external validity of experimental studies of electricity demand, electricity use in a master metered apartment complex, and econometric estimation of household electricity demand. Part I of the dissertation is an empirical analysis involving the monthly electricity use of 300 households from College Station, Texas, over the period 1972-1975. Of the 300 households, 128 were volunteers in an energy experiment conducted in College Station during the summer of 1975. The analysis of Part I deals with a comparison of the volunteers to the subjects chosen at random. Primary interest is placed on how the volunteers responded to electricity price changes and non-price factors compared with the response of the subjects chosen at random, and also how the two groups compared in terms of other characteristics such as energy use levels. More generally the question of volunteer bias is investigated in this section. Part II of the dissertation is an analysis of the above data set concerned with the modeling of monthly energy demand of each household in terms of response to fuel adjustment changes and non-price factors such as the oil embargo. Part III of the dissertation is an analysis of two experiments conducted in a master metered apartment complex during the periods 9/6/76 - 10/3/76 and 1/31/77 - 3/10/77. The experiments were designed to examine the responsiveness of tenants to a payment scheme which placed a cost on each individual tenant for his electricity use. Tenants, whose apartments were checked at random during experimental weeks, received cash payments only if they were meeting certain energy use criteria which had been specified at the beginning of the experiments

Broken punishment networks in public goods games : experimental evidence( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abundant evidence suggests that high levels of contributions to public goods can be sustained through self-governed monitoring and sanctions. This experimental study investigates the effectiveness of decentralized sanctioning institutions where punishment opportunities are restricted to agents who are linked through alternative punishment networks. We find that the structure of the punishment network significantly impacts contributions to the public good, but not overall efficiencies. Contributions collapse over decision rounds in groups with limited punishment opportunities, even if the absolute punishment capacity corresponds to the complete punishment network where all agents are allowed to punish each other. However, after allowing for the costs of sanctions, efficiencies are similar across the different networks that allow for punishment and the no-punishment network. -- public goods ; experiment ; punishment ; cooperation ; networks

Externalities in appropriation responses to probabilistic losses by Esther Blanco( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We examine behavior in one-shot appropriation games with deterministic and probabilistic degradation externalities, where the marginal net benefit from appropriation is endogenous, dependent on individuals' expectations of group appropriation. The experimental design involves a menu of games where the magnitude of a loss parameter associated with probabilistic degradation varies across games. On average, as the loss parameter increases we observe a significant reduction in group appropriation. There is, however, considerable heterogeneity in behavior. First, subjects who are more pessimistic (optimistic) about group appropriation significantly increase (decrease) appropriation as the loss parameter increases. Second, relative to subjects with more optimistic expectations regarding group appropriation, the appropriation of subjects who are more pessimistic is more closely tied to changes in expected marginal benefits

Appropriation in the commons variations in the opportunity costs of conservation by Esther Blanco( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examines individual and group behavior in a linear appropriation game setting. Subjects make decisions from a menu of eight games, without feedback. Four treatment conditions vary the magnitude of the opportunity cost of conservation, including symmetric and asymmetric treatments. A parallel set of four treatments implement the same parameter variations in a setting where probabilistic degradation of the commons is linked to group appropriation. Thus, this setting introduces uncertainty in the value of the opportunity cost of appropriation. In summary, subjects respond systematically to changes in the marginal incentives and to the possibility of degradation. These responses are shown to be related to a direct effect of changes in marginal monetary incentives and to an indirect effect associated with changes in subjects' first order beliefs of the appropriation decisions of others. -- common-pool resources ; asymmetry ; cooperation ; laboratory experiments
